Using ATR as input signals
Use ATR together with your preferred indicator to find the trend. If the trend is down, expect a rally. Use ATR for long trades from the lowest point of the trend. When the price breaks the ATR line down, an entry signal is formed. If the trend is up, expect a pullback. Use ATR for short trades from the highest point of the trend. When the price breaks the ATR line up, an entry signal is formed.
Using ATR as a stop loss:
After opening a trade, set the appropriate ATR on the chart. If a long trade is open, set the long ATR to the last significant low in the trend. If a short trade is open, set the short ATR to the last significant low in the trend. When the candle closes and the price breaks through the ATR line, close the trade.
The Guppy Multiple Moving Average (GMMA) is based on chaos theory and combines the relationship between long-term investors (red group) and short-term traders (blue group). When the blue group is higher than the red group, it indicates an uptrend. When the blue group is below the red group, it indicates a downtrend. The width of each group indicates the strength of the trend. If the blue group shrinks and turns down, and the red group remains clearly divided, this indicates a temporary weakness and the possibility of entry. If there is a compression in both groups, this indicates a change in the trend.
