1Outside Bar - VertexFX Empty AMA And AMA Signals Wed Oct 12, 2016 2:41 pm


AMA and AMA Signals is a client side VTL Indicator. It plots the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) on the chart and identifies the market trend with the dots plotted on the KAMA line.
The most general use of moving average (MA) is trend identification. The rising MA line signals uptrend and declining MA line signals down trend.  KAMA will closely follow prices when the price swings are relatively small and the noise is low. KAMA will adjust when the price swings widen and follow prices from a greater distance. This trend-following indicator can be used to identify the overall trend, time turning points and filter price movements.  AMA and AMA Signals indicator identifies the KAMA turning points and plots green dots when the AMA is in uptrend and yellow dots when the AMA is in down trend.  The dots on the AMA line can be used as a trend filter.
A simple trading strategy with this indicator is to Buy when the yellow dots turn to green dots, that is when the trend turns up. Sell position is opened when the green dots turn yellow, that is when the trend turns down. It can be used as trend filter in other trading strategies by checking the color of the dots. The KAMA line can be used as a trailing stop loss also. Another example to trade using the AMA & AMA Signal indicator is wait for price to reach support or resistance. After testing the support, if the AMA & AMA Signal Indicator gives a buy signal by plotting green dot, open a buy position. After testing a resistance, if the AMA & AMA Signal indictor gives a sell signal by plotting yellow dots, open a sell position. Stop loss can be placed a few pips above the KAMA line.
The indicator parameters:
1                     KAMA Period – Period for AMA calculation
2                     Fast                - Fast period for AMA
3                     Slow              - Slow period for AMA
4                     G and dk      - Smoothing Constants

Outside Bar is a Client Side VTL Indicator to mark outside bars on chart. The indicator plots two arrows above and below the outside bar. Outside bar is bar that has a higher high and lower low than the preceding bar. It is a short-term expansion in price range or volatility. Outside bars form at the end of a trend and on breakout moves from consolidation in a trending period. Trader must use a discretionary approach in picking the outside bar setups for trading. In a trading range outside bars breakouts may be false signals.
The method to trade outside bars is to open position in the direction of outside bar’s high or low breakout. It is better to open trades when breakout happens in the direction of the outside bar. On bullish outside bar, look for upward breakout, and for a bearish outside bar, look for downward breakout of the outside bar. Trader must use discretion in picking outside bar trading setups. There may be many outside bars in chart but they all does not make good breakout trades. Outside bars formed at key support/resistance level are good setups. Breakout from consolidation with an outside bar setup is another good trading setup. See the image attached.
