Developed by M. H. Pee, the Trend Continuation Factor aims to help traders identify whether the market is trending, and, in case it is, in what direction it is headed. It can be used in any time frame, with every currency pair and is suitable for beginner traders.
The indicator is comprised of two lines, namely the PlusTCF and MinusTCF, which separately correspond to and momentum, respectively. If the PlusTCF line is positive, then the prevailing trend is , while a positive MinusTCF line signifies a . Logically, both lines cannot be positive at the same time because the market cannot be in a and a simultaneously. However, they both can be negative at a current moment, implying that the market has consolidated in a trading range.
As for trading this indicator, it is generally interpreted and acted upon in a similar way as trading the Average Index. The most basic trading strategy involving the TCF is to enter long positions when the PlusTCF line is positive and to enter short positions when the MinusTCF is positive.
Traders also tend to regard the crossovers of the PlusTCF and MinusTCF lines as entry signals in the direction of the advancing line. Thus, if the PlusTCF crosses the MinusTCF and becomes positive, you should initiate a long entry, and vice versa.
