Indicators Explained

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.


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).

Engulfing Candle Pattern

An engulfing candle pattern is candlestick pattern used to identify trend reversals. 
bearish engulfing pattern and bullish engulfing pattern are the two types of engulfing patterns. 
When bearish candle is followed by significantly larger bullish candle that looks to engulf it, this is known as bullish engulfing. 
bearish engulfing, on the other hand, occurs when bullish candle is followed by very huge bearish candle that appears to engulf it.
