Indicator signals

To open a certain trade using the JMA TRIX log indicator, one should take into account the direction and strength of the current market trend. For this, in turn, the direction and color of the indicator line, as well as its location relative to the signal level 0, are taken into account. If the indicator determines an upward trend, buy trades are opened, if the trend is downward, sell trades. When the trend changes, in both cases, trades are closed.

Signal for Buy trades:

  • The indicator line is directed upwards, above level 0 and has a color with a growth value.
    Upon receipt of such an indicator condition that characterizes an uptrend, a buy trade can be opened. At the moment of its change, namely, upon receipt of reverse conditions from the indicator, the current trade should be closed and a new one should be considered.

Signal for Sell trades

  • The indicator line has a color with a falling value and falls below the signal level
    Upon receipt of such a condition, a sell trade can be opened. At this moment, a downtrend is determined in the market. The trade should be closed upon receiving the opposite conditions from the indicator. At this moment, a change in the current trend is possible, which will allow considering the opening of new trades.
