TrendScore Indicator was devised by Tushar S. Chande and he explained all about its use at his article in Stocks & Commodities: “Rating Trend Strength”.
TrendScore Indicator can be traded in many ways. The approach we choose depends on our trading style:
- You can use the zero crossing as an early signal and then buy when the trendscore becomes positive or equal to +10 and sell when it becomes negative or equal to –10.
- Also as a filter you can wait one to three bars after the TrendScore reaches +10 or -10 before buying (+ 10) or selling (-10).
- Or you can combine the trendscore with a moving average, trading an upward or downward crossover.
- Another variation would be to go long after the trendscore crosses from -10 to above +5 and go short after the trendscore falls from +10 to below 5.
You could also combine TrendScore with other indicators of trend strength. For example, if you combine it with the ADX indicator Trendscore would provide an indication of direction, while the ADX can provide additional information about the trend's strength. You could also for example use H1 data to calculate a trend's score and make trades based on a lower timeframe like M15,M5 or M1 etc.
