Amibroker AFL to Identify Trend Reversal

To identify a Trend Reversal in a trading strategy is a big query for every trader. Trend Reversal if caught at a good timing can be really fruitful to profit from the stock price moves.There are various methods followed by traders to identify Trend Reversal of a scrip or stock. This is a very lengthy topic which can take several pages of elaboration. Different time frames have different trends at the same time of trading periods. Every type of trader tries to follow the trend of their own trading time frame.

In Amibroker an AFL is being used which identifies Trend Reversal. The AFL seems quite interesting but one should always make it sure that before using any system it should be tested. So a good strategy to test it manually can be a Bar Replay function in Amibroker for getting acquainted. Then using the AFL in real time and paper trading through it. If the results are good then only tend to use the Amibroker afl for real trading purpose.

The AFL being posted here is on as is basis as written by the author of the AFL. You should not take it as an advice to base your trade decisions on the same. Trading decisions should be purely done on one's own initiative.

Earlier I posted a Trend Reversal AFL system based on Heiken Ashi Candles. Although the AFL had results but it was printing too many signals and was also looking into the future which meant that during backtesting it could give good results but when one uses it real time it might repaint the signals with the change of indicator readings. Therefore I thought of sharing a better Trend Reversal catching AFL where the visual effect has good efficacy. Those who tend to remain with the trend patiently would find it better to make their decisions for entry and exits as it also prints target levels. This AFL will be good for Intraday traders who choose shorter time frames like 5 minute , 10 minute , 15 minute etc. for their trading needs.
