I'd suggest building a trendline break into the entry. You also should be able to name the minimum bars you require between highs or lows in price to control the scale of the divergences you want to track. Otherwise, you have an indicator firing off unprofitable signals. Another consideration is to look at higher time frame trend as a filter.
Thanks for the suggestions.
1. Threndline break. That's not currently part of my rules, but, I'll consider it for the future.
2. Minimum Bars Between Highs or Lows. This is currently set via a user input named Bars4CorrelationScan. I have it set by default to 36 which I've found works well with GBPUSD at M15.
3. Higher Time Fram filter. Yes. Have considered this. For now, everything is operating off of the chart's time frame.
Many thanks to Newdigital and other guys for the info.
Trading divergence can be very profitable
I thried several 'divergence' indicators on here but none seems do the job well, although it shouldn't be difficult.
See chart attached
All is needed for an indicator, say RSI or CCI, to change color when it has divergence with price.
May be somebody from programmers can make us a Xmas present
Yep, seems simple enough doesn't it? I've been looking for something similar for quite a while..
European, I found an interesting Oscillator on the VT_platform called the Stochastic RSI_Oscillator. If you follow the normal rules of divergence, this seems to work very well.
Also, I came across this link where I learned about this Oscillator; it makes interesting listening:
I am also attaching here a MT4 version of this Oscillator, but it is slightly different. Having said that, once you get use to it, it works well enough for me in the test-phase this far.
I am looking for an indicator called:
Trend Reversal Index
It is from John Netto's book- One Shot One Kill Trading
He uses it for DIVERGENCE trading much like the applications mentioned in this thread. He found that after looking at hundreds of different indicators- he found that this indicator worked the best.
Netto mentions that it is a RSI 13 period with a RSI 3 period
the Metastock formula is:
I hope that somebody has seen this indicator for MT4, or is kind enough to create for a non-programmer etc..
Ty-in advance, Matt Rippy
Is this what you are looking for?
I have been experimenting with divergence over the past few weeks using the CCI indicator and confirming the entry point with RVI and RSI/MA. So far it appears to be giving fairly good results. I thought I would post a screen shot for anyone who is interested. I will post more details as soon as I can.
Hello increase ,
I noticed you made a pretty good attempt at helping y09ster and so now, I found a similar indicator with divergence lines (if its placed in the first indicator window). I'm hoping you can tell me how to program this one to give alert with sound at its best deviation as well?
Thanks again, richard
Hi Bratt, thanks for posting this indicator, looks pretty good.
