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

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

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 a new one for me.  Will need to read up on it.

The Zig Zag indicator is often used in conjunction with Elliot Wave Theory to determine the positioning of each wave in the overall cycle

 

Oh god, Tom 🤪🤯

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...

    • Thanks for clarifying. The support person clearly did not understand this at all, and the website is very vague! The 0.5% is something I'm used to from other platforms, and much easier to absorb as a cost on small positions when making a good entry
    • There was another fork the other day - Bitcoin Latinum - the world's largest "insured" digital asset. One wonders if every time another variant is created it simply draws away potential investors from the original version. I bet committed Bitcoiners wish these variants would all just fork off 😉 I saw something the other day that happened to mention that a Bitcoin was worth about 10 ounces of Gold.......then it hit me - would I prefer to be offered one Bitcoin out there in the ether or ten ounces of physical Gold in my actual possession? 10 Bitcoin to buy a single ounce of Gold intuitively feels like the more sensible way around as I'm certain that Gold is safe but several times less certain that Bitcoin is - so we could be out by a factor of 100! But whilst fund managers all start allocating the odd fractional percent to get exposure to Alpha for minimal portfolio downside the price will probably hold or bubble up even more. It will be interesting though  if national regulators later turn round and ban funds from holding cryptos - then they will all have to rush for the exit at the same time. Maybe that's the ultimate expected outcome.  According to Wikipedia in March 2018 0.5% of bitcoin wallets owned 87% of all bitcoins ever mined. Imagine if  transferring that 87% to fund managers at peak prices is the intended end-game before it all collapses? It would make Bernie Madoff look like a mere pick-pocket.
