Swing Crossings - TradingED

This case study is based on different previous studies: ADX Performance, MACD Performance & RSI Performance, with different counts to compare different oscillations of each indicator. Actually, this indicator is complementary to those previously mentioned. The use of this indicator is restricted to private use, and it can be used only by invitation. Different functionalities have been added to the original codes, such as alerts and signals that seek to make trading much easier to interpret by any type of trading operator of any experience level, from beginner to intermediate and advanced .

Key components of the original ADX indicator:
• The DIRECTIONAL MOVEMENT INDEX (DMI) is a technical indicator that measures both the strength and direction of a price movement and is intended to reduce false signals.
• The DMI uses two standard indicators, one negative ( -DI ) and one positive ( +DI ), in conjunction with a third, the AVERAGE DIRECTIONAL INDEX ( ADX ), which is non-directional but shows momentum.
• The larger the spread between the two primary lines, the stronger the price trend. If +DI is way above -DI the price trend is strongly up. If -DI is way above +DI then the price trend is strongly down.
ADX measures the strength of the trend, either up or down; a reading above 20 indicates a strong trend.

ADX is plotted as a single line with values ranging from a low of zero to a high of 100. ADX is non-directional; it registers trend strength whether price is trending up or down. The indicator is usually plotted in the same window as the two DMI lines, from which ADX is derived. When +DI is above -DI , there is more upward pressure than downward pressure in the price. Conversely, if -DI is above +DI , then there is more downward pressure on the price. This indicator may help traders assess the trend direction. Crossovers between the lines are also sometimes used as trade signals to buy or sell, theay are the main trade signals. A long trade is taken when the +DI crosses above the -DI and an uptrend could be underway. Meanwhile, a sell signal occurs when the +DI instead crosses below the -DI .

Key components of the original RSI indicator:
● The Relative Strength Index ( RSI ) is a popular momentum oscillator developed in 1978.
● The RSI provides technical traders signals about bullish and bearish price momentum, and it is often plotted beneath the graph of an asset's price.
● An asset is usually considered overbought when the RSI is above 70% and oversold when it is below 30%.

It is a momentum indicator used in technical analysis that measures the magnitude of recent price changes to assess overbought or oversold conditions in the price of an asset. The RSI is displayed as an oscillator (a line chart moving between two extremes) and can read from 0 to 100. Overbought does not necessarily mean that the price will reverse lower, just as oversold does not mean that the price will reverse higher. Rather, the overbought and oversold conditions simply alert traders that the RSI is near the extremes of its recent readings.

Key components of the original MACD indicator:
● The Moving Average Convergence Divergence ( MACD ) is calculated by subtracting a long period (26) Exponential Moving Average ( EMA ) from a short (12) period EMA .
MACD triggers technical signals when it crosses above (to buy) or below (to sell) its signal line.
● The speed of crossovers is also taken as a signal of a market is overbought or oversold.
MACD helps traders to understand whether the bullish or bearish movement in the price is strengthening or weakening.

It is a momentum indicator that follows the trend and shows the relationship between two moving averages of the price of a security. It can function as a trigger for buy and sell signals, when you cross above (to buy) or below (to sell) your signal line. It helps to understand if the movement is bullish or bearish , if it is getting stronger or weaker. The further the MACD is above or below its baseline, it indicates that the distance between the two EMAs will be growing, often shown with a histogram that graphically represents the distance between the MACD and its signal line, and It is used to identify when the bullish or bearish momentum.
