Well, she has a specific reason for those settings, and is trying (with [I][U]constant-volume[/U][/I] bars, which I also use) to identify dips in uptrends and rallies in downtrends (highly tradable, of course, but as part of the complete system - [I][U]not in isolation[/U][/I]). It’s part of a broader method, and isn’t (I think) going to work on its own - or at least, I should say, I know of no reason why it would.
My own knowledge and experience of her method have increased considerably since I made that post. It can very beneficially be combined with a very long, very slow MACD indicator used as a “directional bias indicator”, seeking to identify potential long positions only when the MACD-line is above both its signal-line and its midline, and short positions only when it’s below both. This is what we’re both researching, with it, at the moment, and it does look interesting. I haven’t tried it with any of the other indicators you’re using.
(“AO” is essentially just a 5/34 moving average crossover displayed graphically under the chart instead of as lines on it.)
Yes, certainly. The [I]Tenkan/Kijun[/I] cross is only a form of moving average crossover but using Donchian channel midlines as the averages: it certainly isn’t [I][U]in itself[/U][/I] a basis for entering trades.
Well, for what it’s worth, she makes a living and is an ex-instutional trader. But whether this will work with what you’re doing and on your time-frame and with timed bars, I have no idea. This is all untested.
