One of the oldest maxims in trading is ‘let the trend be your friend’. You must have come across it! This is easier said than done! First, you have to identify one, then you have to stay in – not easy. Staying in a trend to maximise your profits is extremely difficult. In addition, how do you know when a trend has started?
It’s very easy to look back and identify the trend. Not so easy at the live edge of the market.
The Quantum Trends indicator is the ‘sister’ indicator to the Quantum Trend Monitor indicator. Together they go hand in hand to keep you in and surfing the trend. The Quantum Trends catches the shorter term trend. Then the Quantum Trend Monitor steps in to keep you in for the longer term. A match made in heaven.
The Quantum Trends indicator paints a series of dots on the price chart as follows:
- Bullish trend – blue
- Bearish trend – red
- Congestion – grey
Once a new trend starts, the dots change colour dynamically, from blue to red or grey.
Contrary to what you may have read, markets spend more time in congestion, than they do trending. Congestion phases are the most important aspect of price action. This is where trends pause, die or are reborn.
Now, you no longer need to guess if a new trend is starting. The Quantum Trends indicator will tell you, simply and clearly. When combined with the Quantum Trend Monitor indicator, and trading in multiple timeframes is the perfect combination.
And of course, as with all Quantum indicators, there is always more. Again, the Quantum Trends indicator can be fine-tuned to match your own trading style. No two traders are the same. No two trading styles are the same. Strange then, that most indicators are designed on the ‘one size fits all’ principle. Not with Quantum Trading.
The Quantum Trends indicator can be fine-tuned, giving you the right tools for the right job. If you prefer scalping, simply adjust the settings accordingly and increase the sensitivity. A precision tool for precision trading. If your approach is long term, perhaps swing or trend trading, simply adjust the control and decrease the sensitivity.
The Quantum Trends indicator works in all timeframes from, tick to seconds, and from minutes to months.
