i find bollinger band with macd2,3,2 give nice divergence signals also.


Thanks mystiq68,
I do have to study divergence and will certainly have a look at BB and volume like you said.

Enjoy your day.

Can you post an example how you trade? Or could you pm it when it has less to do with the Ninja thread content?

I would like to study divergence in combination with the sema and anything can help.

ok. no problem. i will post a chart later but...
i experiment with price falling below lower bollingerBands , to replicate a "semafore" condition- wait for Macd to rise, to replicate "divergence"

i am working on confirmations for trades with williams%r2 rising above -50,
rsi2 rising above 50 as well as cci20 crossing -100...the volume plays a part and will post my findings when complete.

Divergence is very simple , don't let the terms confuse you .

When price makes a higher high ..and the oscilator makes a lower high ..
That is bearish divergence ( sell signal )

When price makes a lower low ..and the oscilator makes a higher low ..
That is bullish divergence ( buy signal )

( hidden or reverse divergence usually occurs in a trend direction rather than a reversal ..but don't even worry about that yet ..learn the regular divergences first )

This indy will draw the divergences for you and help you to see them ..go slow ..take time to let it sink in


Indeed, sounds simple. I need to see it live on a chart over and over again.
But how do you determine which timelength to use for the lines to form? I see that the indicator does this for you but is there a rule or recommendation which length to use? All examples seem to use a lengthy timeframe, is it also possible to use in a shorter timeframe?
Cause i can see over and over again lower lows and higher higs but than again price suddenly moves even further when i demo trade them...

I need to practice and take the time like you said.
So do you consider that the sema in combination with divergence gives you a better edge ?

Thanks, Phil



I feel the larger timeframes give better signals ..60 min or greater

congrats on your winning trades ...

Trading on a 60 min chart ..and taking set-ups that are at , or near the opens of sessions ..has resulted in about 7 out of 10 winners .

Results may be higher on even longer time frames ...

What chart ARE you guys using?

Postby The_Snowman » Sun Oct 31, 2010 2:51 am

CONSTANT RANGE BARS are not Renko bars, Heikin Ashi bars, ticks bars or point & figure bars, please read this first -

http://www.investopedia.com/articles/tr ... t-view.asp

And the indicator for Metatrader 4 is here, warning $30 USA -------->

http://www.the-forex-strategy.com/index ... ars-plugin

But I found this free indicator ----------->

http://www.surefiretradingchallenge.com ... SWWUBQHBCL

and here is how to use it, not as straight forward as just whacking it on the chart, you will see -

@ dchappy, or others, for the benefit of those of us coming late to this thread, can you please explain the type of chart method you are using and the platform?

I was directed to this thread from another, on the premise that people were using Metatrader 4 and using Constant Range Bar Charts, is that true?

The thread title is perhaps slightly misleading, if indeed that is the case; perhaps another thread dedicated to MT4 and Constant Range Bar Charts is required.

Many thanks, John :)
