Trend-following strategies are great because they give you the peace of mind that you're trading in line with the market.
However, by definition, you're always following. That means you're always a bit later than your want to be. The main challenges such strategies face are:
Confirming that there is a trend
Following the trend, hopefully, early enough to catch...
Markets don’t always trade in a clear direction. At a closer look, most of the time, they move sideways. Relying on trend-following strategies all the time can thus lead to repeated false signals in such conditions.
However, before you can safely trade sideways, you have to identify the most suitable market conditions.
The main features of such strategies...
The most common way to use the RSI to spot a good buy opportunity is to check for values lower than 30. Unfortunately, the RSI can remain in oversold territory for long periods, and that could leave you trapped in a trade in loss. It would be appropriate to wait for a confirmation of the trend reversal.
In the example above I use a short-term Moving Average (in...

The indicator provides insight into macro market sentiment, profitability and losses taken over a particular time-frame. It reflects the...

I'm a big fan of simple strategies.

You can choose one of 3 types of SL:
% of your price
ATR - it is calculated as current ATR * multiplier
As you can see even this simple strategy can show...
This strategy joins the Pivot Reversal strategy with the RSI indicator.
We check RSI level at the pivot point level and only if RSI condition is satisfied we update levels for stop orders.
The strategy works pretty good for crypto, 30m, 1h, 2h timeframes.
Price is never wrong, but sometimes reading it can be tricky.
Movements in the broader market or a sector can distract from a symbol that's been steadily trending in one direction or another. Sometimes the beginning of a move can also be so subtle that it flies under most people's radar.
Price Streak can help overcome these limitations by tracking consecutive...
This strategy is designed for crypto markets like ETHUSD/T, BTCUSD/T and so on.
It works amazingly with 15 min time frames.
Its idea consists in :
We have the RSI indicator, and with it we check for the crossover with overbought and oversold levels. At the same time we have the zigzag which is made from the higher highs and the lower lows between a specific...

The bands are then a customizable percentage of the basis.
Which based on the settings, could serve as possible support and...

Coinrule's Community is an excellent source of inspiration for our trading strategies.
In these months of Bull Market, our traders opted mostly on buy-the-dips strategies, which resulted in great returns recently. But there has been an element that turned out to be the cause for deep division among the Community.
Is it advisable or not to use a stop-loss...

The highest Vix Bottom and the highest Vix Top are averaged (over the Highest Vix Lookback period).
Buys are signaled when the Vix Bottom...

Tested with the crypto pair ETH/USDT in the 15 minute chart.
There is the possibility to switch between...

The circles represent the cross between RSI and MFI .
