PFE

A trader can use market reversal signals from the Polarized Fractal Efficiency, or PFE, indicator to create a basic trading strategy that is implemented with one additional, confirming technical indicator. The PFE indicator is designed to measure the efficiency of price movement. It is based on the fundamental axiom of geometry that the most efficient movement, in this case the movement of price, is linear movement. Therefore, it accords price movement in a more linear, as opposed to up and down, movement as indicating a stronger, more definitive trend. PFE values range from -100 to +100, in reference to a zero line that differentiates positive and negative values.

A common forex trading strategy employed with the PFE uses the indicator to anticipate trend changes. The theory behind the strategy is that once the PFE reading shows maximum efficiency of price movement with readings near +100 or -100, the movement or momentum of price is likely to deteriorate and subsequently reverse. A complementary indicator that is also often used to anticipate trend change or market retracement is the moving average convergence divergence MACD.

The following is a trading strategy that uses the PFE in conjunction with the MACD to provide trading signals for a market reversal trade:

The trade signal is a PFE reading greater than +90 or -90.

The trade is only entered if at the same time the PFE shows the required extreme reading and the MACD shows divergence from price by turning in the opposite direction of the existing trend.
Provided both trade entry conditions are met, a trade is initiated in the opposite direction of the trend, selling in an existing uptrend or buying in an existing downtrend.
The initial profit target is the price that represents a 35% retracement of the trend.
An initial stop-loss order is placed 50 pips from the trade entry price.

Sierra doesn't have PFE indicator to check it out....darn it .

Psychological Reversal



"This psychological reversal will leave you feeling frustrated, disappointed or angry with yourself. And as you continue to criticize judge, and get down on yourself it only reinforces the psychological reversal."

I collect data at the end of each day
Today the ETH and RTH ranges were the same both 17 points - so both highs the same and both lows the same.

High: 2741.25
Low: 2724.25
(the o/n low was 2727.25)

NB 2741.25-2591.25=150 exactly.
(today - LOW 466 may 3 -see Fat Pitch Journal)
