Moving Average Stop and Reverse (MASAR) [cI8DH]

This indicator is an alternative to Parabolic Stop and Reverse indicator. It is primarily used to identify points of potential stops and reverses.

Instead of using a static parabolic curve, this indicator adjusts dynamically based on the changes in moving average of the price. Read here to learn more about the usage of this indicator.

I tested the strategy version of this indicator on Bitstamp:BTCUSD and compared the results to the Parabolic SAR . I changed the settings on both indicators to achieve the best results on each indicator. This indicator outperformed the Parabolic SAR by a large margin.

You need to calibrate the indicator depending on the asset and time frame. It works best in trending markets.

ThankU @ThankUKind, love you homie <3
Cool that you have already messed with this! I think this concept mixed with layered exponential smoothening and the right filtering techniques could be extraordinarily powerful

@Biggusdikkus, it depends on your trading frequency. Just play with the length until you see a good fit.
