Indicators used in Trade setup

There are 3 main indicators used in this trading setup, and each of these indicators has been explained below in detail.


The exponential moving average of stock’s closing price over certain number of trading sessions is known as the EMA. 
It functions similarly to the SMA (Simple Moving Average), with the exception that it prioritises more recent data because it is regarded more important than older data. 
The time period is the parameter that must be entered for the EMA. 
Traders often go long when prices are above the EMA and short when prices are below the EMA.


Convergence of Moving Averages 
Divergence, sometimes known as the MACD, is momentum-based indicator that depicts the connection between two separate exponential moving averages (EMAs). 
It is derived by subtracting the longer period’s EMA from the shorter period’s EMA. 
This line can then be used as buy or sell signal by superimposing it over another EMA line (called the signal line). 
When the MACD is above the EMA, traders usually go long, and when the MACD is below the EMA, they usually go short.


The RSI is momentum indicator that may be used to determine if company is overbought or oversold at any given time. 
It achieves so by keeping track of the size of recent price movements. 
The RSI is expressed as number between and 100, with value below 20 indicating an oversold stock (ripe for long position) and value above 80 indicating an overbought stock (ripe for short position) (ripe for short).

Trade Setup

For this particular trading setup, the following settings were used on the indicators:


Three different EMAs were used in this setup, each with different time periods. They were all marked with different-coloured lines:
EMA 1: Period = 9
EMA 2: Period = 55
EMA 3: Period = 200


The signal line and the MACD line are disabled here as we only use the histogram. While the original chart is in 5-minute intervals, the MACD histogram is set to a 1-minute interval.


The middle line of 50 is used as opposed to the overbought (>80) and the oversold (<20) bands.

Trade Entry and Exit

  1. A long position was initiated whenever EMA 1 was above EMA 2 and EMA 3. Here another condition is that the RSI would have to be above 51 and MACD should have at is lower Red that is Lower than the average (indicated through the MACD histogram).
  2. A short position was initiated whenever EMA 1 was below EMa 2, which was in turn below EMA 3. The RSI chart would have to be below 49, and in addition to this, the MACD histogram would have to show higher green band.

These indicators were set to indicate pullbacks in trends. Bollinger band expansion of volatility can easily be identified on Bollinger bands to the MACD and a candle touching upper or lower bar exists whenever a candle touches the Bollinger bands.

The risk-reward ratio was set as 1:2.
