Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Which part of momentum do you use in your setup?

I presume you have a momentum component in your setup in this discussion.

Often, in a momentum indicator, you would see momentum slowing down and then eventually momentum would flip from long to short (and vice versa) - by which it could mean the momentum number was positive and then the following bar negative. I would like to call this "momentum flip"

Momentum can also continue to be long (or short) and it will slow down or speed up. That is, momentum can remain above zero but falling or rising. I would like to call this "potential momentum flip"

Which do you use in your setup? "Momentum flip" or "Potential momentum flip"
