TASC 2017-07 | Trading The Nikkei (Katsanos)


Traders' Tip text

We've added Markos Katsanos' Regression Divergence indicator to the Wealth-Lab TASCIndicators library for easy reference in any Strategy.

Buy signals were produced when the divergence crossed above 75 and turned down during the next three days. The opposite event, i.e. the crossing under 25 and turning up, generated short signals.


Figure 1. Trades generated by the intermarket divergence system with the 50-day regression divergence indicator plotted on the top.
