Using Stochastics in Bear Markets
Sept. 9, 2022
This week we’re talking about what has worked this year.
So many things have struggled. It would be nice to know what hasn’t struggled.
In our last Newsletter, a long-term system on a 4-hour chart held up very nicely. How about another long-term system?
This one uses the Stochastics indicator and was talked about in the 4/2/21 Newsletter. Here are the details:
Daily Stochastic Breakout (using Master Trend)
- Target: 1000 pips
- Stop: 400 pips
- Time Exits: 20 for Long, 10 for Short
- Enter Long on a Stochastics break above Overbought (2 length, 70 Overbought)
- Enter Short on a Stochastics break below Oversold (2 length, 20 Oversold)
