Zig Zag with RSI Divergence.

Published online July 2020. (not tested myself).

The strategy is based on Divergence in different way
Timeframe: any; scalpers should choose M5
Pairs: any. Claims a 75%winratio and 1:2 risk reward ratio
So what we gonna need with this strategy two indicators.
1) Zig Zag with Depth 50.

2) RSI period 140

Buy Setup:
1) Wait for the price to break the last bottom, the zigzag indicator make it clear
2) Next the rsi need to make a divergence (higher high) if not then we will not trade
3) after the rsi is making a divergence we wait for the price to close above the latest low then we take a trade and we put the sl and tp at the latest high

Tom, is an RSI value of 140 periods for the 5 minute chart or all time frames?  🤔

yeah, 140 doesn't make sense on my chart while 14 looks right (any time frame) tho in his pics he has 140. will try to ask today.

just remembered he's on holiday.

The zigzag Indicator is the holy grail of Indicators/lines if you fathom out how to use it correctly - A zigzag Indicator highlights vectors and points of Instantaneous Balance Stability - The clue was given in my How to Win thread which showed them on some charts - Keep referring to W D Gann for some reason!

Think I posted this strategy for testing somewhere else but forgot where, I came across the accompanying pdf but found I can't post that so here's the video again.

Dip buying on pullback failure with entry on breakout past recent high, simple and quite sound, at least worth a play on demo. Maybe even trial on higher time frames with MAs adjusted accordingly.

The video is on the “Trade Planning and Testing” thread where it was commented on by THT.

The guy who hawks Gann bullsh!t and advocates a buy-and-hold dollar-cost-averaging investing strategy under the guise of 'new moon trading'?  Must be a great idea then...

    • I'll try to be concise: Dent was in 2010 calling for the mother of all stock market crashes - so were Elliott Wave International in fact EWI have been call for a massive collapse since 1986!  Some of what he says is accurate - deflation for example - the reason QE has not caused inflation is because it was issued in a deflationary cycle The crash he talks about won't happen - I listened to dent and EWI back in 2010 and I choose to do my own research as other things i was investigating suggested the opposite to what they were both spouting Read my Time Cycles page, it explains the deflationary/inflationary cycles - proven with 220+ years of stock market history behind the reasoning The deflationary cycle he refers to ended late 2016, its now inflationary according to my calcs and research and my prediction is stock market is going upwards until the mid 2030's when it will crash and top out - yet Dent still thinks its in play Up until then we might get a 1987 style crash event but overall the corrections will be modest not massive and they will all be quickly surpassed I don't listen to anyone out there - I trade independently according to my methods so I don't need to be buying and holding and if I'm wrong so be it - it won't affect my trading as the market dictates my positions, not my expectations - since 2010 this has work exceptionally well, where if I'd of followed EWI and Dents forecasts I'd of lost everything in 2010! I've no thoughts on Gold other than it is inflationary hedge - as mentioned on another thread when the stock market is inflationary (which I think started 2017) then price correlation backwards to last time it was inflationary (1982-2000) gold was subdued    
    • Thanks @Caseynotes. Do you think the time of the daily close bears any significance. When viewing the hourly charts, the volume and movements seem to be higher in GMT "working hours" and then slow down overnight. Therefore, are other countries trading on GMT I wonder?
    • Saw a snippet on Sky news complaining that the Lateral Flow test must be faulty because it wasn't picking up as many positives as the PCR. Quite an unbelievable misinterpretation of the data on the number of false positives made by the PCR. Not surprising really as the fake positive numbers generated by the PCR are the only thing driving project fear and lockdowns. Meanwhile, in order to stem the flow of staff needing to self isolate following a PCR false positive the NHS are switching to ...  er, the lateral flow test.         Dr Clare Craig  @ClareCraigPath Deaths are not climbing commensurate with cases. Either COVID got less deadly (despite inc hospital admissions) or we have two measure a) a community positive rate off the charts with false positives b) a hospital rate (likely to inc some real COVID) which is at a steady state     .
