Indicator “Michael” indicator is designed to identify a local trend and generate signals for trading in the direction of the current trend. It can be used to trade at time intervals from 15 minutes to 1 day. The frequency of the signals depends on the selected time interval, as well as the indicator settings. For example, on an interval of 15 minutes and standard settings, the number of trades will be about 5-10 per day.
The indicator combines the advantages of average analysis, as well as regression analysis, which allow you to decrease unnecessary noise in price dynamics and concentrate on the overall picture of price movement.
The main feature of the Michael indicator is an attempt to partially offset the main drawback of the analysis of averages - the delay of signals. Averages, by their nature, show what was, and not what will be. As a result, often the predicative abilities of this method of are questioned. In order to improve the quality of the signals, auto-regression model is used in the indicator. As the result “Michael” shows not what was, but what will be. That is, the delayed signals of the moving averages are balanced by the auto-regression model. Overall, a trader gets a picture that optimally describes the current reality.
In “Michael”, two autoregressive models with different lags are used, which allows monitoring not only general, but also current moods in the market.
Indicator “Michael” checks for the presence of price deviations from equilibrium values. If such deviations are detected, the indicator generates signals in the direction of the local trend.
