The Rubber Band Trade

Well, I've been looking the BWT indicators and there similarity to supertrend and other indicators we use all days free and became somewhat interested in this setup of trading called the rubber band. The system is very simple to use and has a very good win/loss ratio, the only indicator you'll need is a 50 SMA . The Rubber Band Trade is based on the "reversion to the mean" principle. There are some very specific rules that will make this a very low risk trade and sometimes can even give you a good win/loss ratio. Of course if 50 SMA is up, you only take longs, if down you take shorts, but the difference is that you just get the rubber band ones for you to avoid the trending days.

As you can see in my screenshot and as you know, the price always comes back to the SMA! And that's great because on can BUY when the price is below the SMA and you can SELL you is above, but when there's a large trend you will be stooped out, but you need to check when the SMA is going up and the price goes below or the opposite. You can check the video that explains this system on the topdogtrading website at
