How to combine Indicators for trading?

A simple post on how to combine indicators to have an edge.

1. Understand the Indicators and its function.
2. Understand the price action
3. Create rules, that work for "you"
4. Stick to the Plan.
5. Manage what we know.....


For eg.
1. Squeeze on Weekly - Chart is sideways
2. Top and Bottom Indicator works well in a sideways market.

3. We cannot apply the TOP&Bottom on weekly because, its range is tight. Therefore, we switch timeframe to find the swing, that's good enough to trade

4. In this case, Daily / 2Day chart will work.

5. Apply the top & bottom indicator to the weekly squeeze.


- Creating strategies / Analyzing charts will only constitute for a 15% of the trading game.
- Other 85% still remain on RISK MANAGEMENT.

Developing risk management ===> Developing rules for the strategy.
Great idea to post this!

You don't NEED them but some can speed up the thought process.

Use indicators to scan, after all its a derivation of price action. And people who claim that indicators fail all the time are people who don't even want to learn the math.

My math knowledge is limited...I have found a few useful indicators but reading a naked chart is vital.
The top/bottom candle one looks good.

Price is not the only data that indicators are derived. There is also time and volume.

Excellent!

UCS ... going on your trade idea above, I can see how u get the entry and stop loss. How are you determining your exit? Btw, I was mixing indicators last night and one of them was your squeeze indicator.

I recently combined Williams %R with your T&B . The T&B provided lots of false signals on this silver chart but when combined with the W%R many good signals were found. Thank you ucsgears for continuing to code some great indicators!

nice job Littleriver! What are your %r settings? It looks like you have 3 of them there intertwined? If we can find a setup that really works, I'd love to have a topic where we can enter possible setups. The daily setups are nice but I need to figure out how to make money intraday too. Guess I can just pick some stocks and do the same thing? set some alerts and see how it goes? good job guys!

Hello doug1965 I have three of them combined for a W%R ribbon. They are set with inputs 8, 32 and 160. When they consolidate in overbought / oversold is often a time for action. That is what i have highlighted above. I think picking some stocks and spend some time learning the nature of this indicator before making any trades is a good idea. I find it useful on all time frames. Good luck!

Why is the green %R visible only at the end?

Since this input requires the most data (160) , there apparently isn't enough data available for this symbol to print it earlier.

Hello sameer I explain to doug just above what the inputs are for the W%R ribbon. Here is what I said,"Hello doug1965 I have three of them combined for a W%R ribbon.

Ok sir, I got that but i can't add three willam %R all together. I am noob for charting...sorry. Is there any pine code available for that setup ? thats what i was asking. Thank you.

No code necessary. All you have to do is click hold and drag one indicator at a time on top of the other. First create the the three w%R's; then, click and drag all of them into one panel. This can be done with other indicators as well.
