Dual Distance From Average indicator

Dual Distance From Average indicator

I still debate myself between indicators that try to predict the future and those that illustrate a simplified view of the obvious market moves. I think that indicators that are very clear help in 2 ways: 1) indicating trades that are conceptually simple, that everybody understands and where you visualise your edge and 2) not forgetting to look at the basics.

This indicator won’t predict any future: it aims to put in a clear way what the market does, and it is conceptually very simple.

I use it for trend following. It measures the distances between price (smooth version of price) and moving averages (exponential, default of 70 and 200 as I use for Spanish stocks). The behaviour that I look for are bounces with (or close to) the 0 line. Interpretation: a bounce in the 0 line simply is the moving average acting as a support (if the bounce is a local minima) or resistance (if the bounce is a local maxima).

I use a smoothed version of the price (exp moving average, default 15) for 2 reasons: 1) close price on itself it gives too spiky signals that become more complex to interpret, 2) it is very common for price to pierce a moving average, but it is far less likely that a smooth version of close (i.e. another moving average) pierces it.

Finally, I print (red line) the distance between the 2 moving averages (70 and 200). This is simply to bring in the longer term trend (bull > 0, bear < 0) as well as MA crossings.

You may likely see this as a redundant indicator if you print your moving averages in the chart, and you will be right. This is just a way to bring moving average interpretation to a simplified form.

I hope someone finds it useful. Any feedback or comments are welcome!

    hello ,
    Thanks for this indicatior , what timeframe do you use it on ?

  2. camporan • 07/30/2019 #

    You can use it 5M onwards, but the longer timeframe the more accurate it is. My preferred are 30M and daily. Also, use your judgement to see if the bounces do happen historically: the edge is just likelihood, and the best way to know how good your edge is, is by looking at the past 🙂
