Multiple trend reversal signals based on TLB bands

Description

Both this multi-signal and the mono-signal tool are based on trend reversals identified in a very interesting chart type called Three Line Break (TLB) chart.

   
Category : Trend reversal
Components : Unique Three Line Break bands
Time frame(s) : All
Usable for buy signals : Yes
Usable for short sell signals : Yes

The TLB chart is interesting because it visualizes a trend reversal. However, the TLB chart is difficult to interpret given the fact that it has a variable time axis. The strength of this signal lies in the fact that it visualizes this complicated yet useful chart as a simple band. This green-red band is visible in the main chart.

When to open a position?

A signal appears when a trend reversal is identified. A trend reversal occurs when the market finds itself in a negative trend and the candle closes above the red band (long signal) or when the market finds itself in a positive trend and the candle closes below the green band (short sell signal).

As opposed to the mono-signal tool, the multi-signal tool will generate additional trading signals every time the TLB band of the same colour is extended upwards or downwards.

 

This example shows the main buy signal (grey) and seven subsequent buy signals, indicating there is still an opportunity to enter.



 

This example shows the main short sell signal (grey) and seven subsequent short sell signals, indicating there is still an opportunity to enter.

 

In the case of the above examples the trader indicated he is willing to receive an unlimited number of signals every day. It is possible to (a) limit the number of signals and to (b) select either long or short sell signals. As usual this is done in the designer dialog window or directly in the chart.

 

 

This example shows a trader indicating directly in the chart that he does not want to receive more than 10 long signals.
