Indicator «ton_demo» belongs to a very specific group of indicators – so called anti-indicators. Their aim is not generation of trading signals, but generation of anti-signals – detection of time intervals when trading is not allowed because of a number of technical contraindications.
Despite the importance, indicators of this type are very rare. Nevertheless they are quite vital. Here are some examples:
Example 1. Sells on the bottom of downtrend before its reverse and start of the correction. Technical indicators like averages and trend indicators in this situation will generate sell signals. But sells on the bottom usually end with sufficient losses. As the result, even trading in trend can generate losses.
Example 2. Sells in the overbought zones. They look like very good trading opportunities. But in case of strong uptrend this can result significant losses.
As can be seen, strong sell signals do not necessarily mean and sometimes even can lead to critical losses.
To avoid such situations anti-indicators can be used. For example indicator «ton_demo» generates signals which forbid sell trades.
In demo version signals are generated based on results of analysis from one analytical block.
Structure of Indicator
Indicator consists of the following elements:
- green zone – signals about the absence of ban for sell trades. Is not a sell signal, so green zone shouldn’t be associated with ideal conditions for sell trades;
- red zone – shows moments when sell trades are forbidden. The most typical situations are strong overbought, presence of strong downtrend and other contraindications;
- trend lines (red/blue line) – show the direction of current price dynamics using the data filtration.
Rules of trading
Rules of trading are quite easy. The presence of forbidden sign (current price is in the red zone) sell trades are not allowed. The presence of allowing sign (current price is in the green zone) is not a sell signal, this is just information that there is no ban for sell trades.
