The Skdon trend signal indicator can be a successful addition to or even a basis for your trading strategy. So I recommend that you pay attention to him. This analysis tool is designed for trading on the trend movement. If a flat is observed in the market, its signals should be ignored.

Installation and adjustment of the indicator

Trade position opening signals

They are very simple. It will not be difficult to open a deal even for a beginner trader.

Look at the chart:

The signal to open a BUY order is the blue arrow, the bars of the indicator are also colored blue.

The signal to open a SELL order is the appearance of a red arrow, the bars of the indicator become red too.

If the arrows appear one by one and are close to each other, it means that the market has not decided on the direction. In such a situation, the correct solution is to refuse to enter the market.

Skdon trend signal must be filtered. To do this, you need to select an additional technical analysis tool. For example, you can use stochastics. If the blue arrow appears, if it leaves the zone, which indicates oversold, then such a buy signal can be trusted more. The sales signal (red arrow) can be confirmed by the fact that the stochastics are in an area that indicates overbought. Stochastic, of course, isn’t the only filter option. Any additional indicator of your choice can be included in the system.

Correcting parameters and filtering should be done on a demo account. And only after getting positive statistics, we can move on to real trading.
