As seen in the above chart, the indicator is responsible for the formation of red and green bars that oscillate on a zero line. The green bars form on the top side of the zero line while the red bars form below the zero line (in the negative region). The red bars in the indicator’s chart shows that the market prices trend is downwards while the green bars show that the market prices trend is upwards.
From the above chart, you can see that the indicator gives its signals very early at the beginning of the market trend. It actually gives its signals at the very beginning of the trend.
The trading signals of this indicator is when a bar of a different color is formed. This is to mean that if the bars that were being formed previously were red in color, and then a green bar is formed, this means there is a signal. If the color of the formed bars changes from red to green then there is a buy signal. If the color of the formed bars changes from green to red then there is a sell signal.
Using the Chifbaw Oscillator Indicator to place trades.
While using this indicator there are important things to note. These include:
- Every trade should be opened after the formation of the second bar on the indicator’s chart. Failure to this will result to losses since this indicator is very sensitive and at time it senses even very short live trends.
- The opened trades should be closed immediately there is the formation of an opposite colored bar. No waiting for the second candle in this candle.
Opening sell positions: this should be done after the bars being formed changes from green to red and it should be done after the formation of the second red bar. You can use stop losses and take profit or you may opt to use the opposite color change to close the order. When you decide to use stop loss, you should place the stop loss at the previous high and the take profit at the previous low.
Opening buy positions: this should be done after the bars being formed changes from red to green and it should be done after the formation of the second green bar. You can use stop losses and take profit or you may opt to use the opposite color change to close the order. When you decide to use stop loss, you should place the stop loss at the previous low and the take profit at the previous high.
