To open a certain trade, it should be taken into account the direction and strength of the current trend, which in turn are determined by taking into account the color of the indicator histogram. If the current trend is upward, open long positions, if the trend is downward, short positions. When the current trend changes, in both cases, trades are closed.
Signal for Buy trades:
- At least three bars of the histogram have a color with a growth value.
Upon receipt of such a condition on a signal candle, a buy trade can be opened, due to the presence of an uptrend. When the trend changes, namely, upon receipt of reverse conditions from the indicator, the trade should be closed and a new one should be considered.
Signal for Sell trades:
- At least three columns of the indicator's histogram have a color with a falling value.
A sell trade can be opened immediately upon receipt of such conditions on a signal candle. At this moment, a downtrend is determined in the market. At the moment of its change, namely, upon receipt of reverse conditions from the indicator, the trade should be closed. At this moment,it should be considered opening a new trade.
