Indicator signals

The Super Woodies CCI indicator is very easy to use, since the algorithm of its application is similar to other histogram indicators. To open a certain tradeusing the indicator, it is needed to determine the strength and direction of the current trend. To do this, in turn, all indicator values are taken into account, namely the direction and color of the histogram with the signal line, as well as its intersection with the trend line. If the indicator determines an upward trend, buy trades are opened, if the trend is downward, sell trades. When the current trend weakens, trades are closed.

Signal for Buy trades:

  • The histogram of the indicator is colored with the growth value and rises above the 0 level together with the signal line. The trend line is located above the 0 level.
    Upon receipt of a combination of such conditions on a signal candle, a buy trade may be opened, due to the presence of an uptrend. At the moment of the trend weakening, the current trade should be closed. And at the moment of a trend change, consider opening a new one.

Signal for Sell trades:

  • The indicator histogram bars have a color with a falling value and, like the signal line, are below the 0 level. The trend line is below the 0 level.
    A sell trade, due to the presence of a downtrend, can be opened immediately upon receipt of such conditions on a signal candle. When receiving reverse conditions from the indicator, namely, when the current trend weakens, the trade should be closed. At the same time, at the moment of changing the direction of the trend, one should consider opening new trades.
