Indicators

The GainCraft platform provides its indicators. We start collecting our own list of indicators, which can be quite interesting and effective for future strategies use.

The Bubble indicator uses inside ATR indicator. In established uptrends, prices bubble above the trend. In over heated markets these bubbles can extend well above the long term trendline. Bubble tops are difficult to pick exactly, but an entry made on the long term trend line, and an exit made when predefined financial targets have been met, is a conservative trading strategy. Traders who are late in seeing the opportunity can wait until the bubble collapses back to the long term trend line. Buy orders placed in advance at these levels are filled on the pullbacks. This approach is not appropriate where the underlying trend is also a bubble. A very steep trend building on a rapid long term trend breakout.


CMA

The CMA (Corrective Moving Average) is a line on the candles chart, that, is above the candles if the trend is down, or below the candle if the trend is up.
