We all heard the phrase 'The trend is your friend until its end'. Yet most traders fail to ride those trends. They often miss the start of the trend and then have a difficult time finding entries when the trend is running. And that is not surprising. All other indicators completely neglect to inform traders of the numerous trading opportunities which occur when the market is trending. Instead, they only try to inform traders about possible trend changes.
The Trend Rider indicator displays up to 20 times more trades than the average indicator because it pays attention to what the market is doing. It gives clear signals when pullbacks or breakouts occur allowing traders to hop onto the trend or add on to an existing position. Besides pullbacks and breakouts, it also generates trend reversal signals if the market becomes too overbought or oversold. It provides clear statistics on how each signal type is performing in current market conditions.
Note that the trend rider is meant to trade and ride trends. Its performance is less when the market is consolidating/ranging.
(R) Reversal signal
When the trend is likely to reverse the indicator will show a red or green R. At the same time the bars will change colors (if enabled) These signals give the first possible point to enter a new trend. They will give you the biggest wins but also have the highest risk. For more conservative traders we suggest trading the breakout or pullback signals.
(BO) Breakout signals
The breakout signal will appear when the market is breaking out of a range or
congestion zone. These are very high probability trades
(PB) Pullback signals
When price pulls back to the stop line a pullback (PB) signal will be generated. They have a higher probability than reversals but lower the breakouts. That said the risk for these pullback trades is so low, often just a few ticks. This means that the risk/reward for these signals is very good.
The indicator shows the number of trades and win ratio for all signal types. By default, it uses an 8-tick target with the stop loss placed (and trailed) the stop line to calculate these statistics. Of course, you can adjust the target. Note that these statistics take all signals into account. In reality, you will probably skip some setups and only trade the high-probability ones. This means that you should be able to get an even higher win ratio when you trade this yourself.
