Here’s one indicator setting I use to manually trade. See if it helps your manual trading. I use stochastics with the settings shown below.
The idea is, every time the daily candlestick closes at or above the upper level 95, I will open a sell position. When it closes at or below the lower level 5, I will open a buy position. It is of course not an absolute infallible technical strategy but even if you’re wrong, chances are great that the price will reverse back into your direction very soon because at the daily timeframe, a stochastic K Period of 5 means that the stochastics is showing data for the previous 5 days. So when it closes at 95 (or above if you want to be more conservative), the market is already stretched out and overbought and it most likely going to reverse because it has been in an uptrend for 5 straight days and the current closing price is a new high compared to the previous 5 days. The opposite is true for using the stochastic lower level of 5 to trigger opening a buy position. If you have the patience to stare at your computer monitor all day, you can enter/exit a position once the price reaches either the upper level 95 or the lower level 5 instead of waiting for it to close there. You’ll notice on the chart that there are periods when the stochastics reached but just almost closed either at 95/5 before reversal.
Example screenshot shows when stochastics has reached (not all instances but only those which prove my point) as referenced by the pink vertical lines.
If you’re the more aggressive type of trader and would rather martingale the sh*t out of your losing positions like John Wayne would, rather than cut your losses like a little baby, you can also use the same stochastics based strategy to signal when to double position and go out with guns blazing. Haha
Hope this helps you.
