The concept behind the Momentum Strategy is that when the momentum crosses from negative to positive, we go long and when it crosses from positive to negative we go short. We stay in that position until momentum crosses back the opposite direction.
- Go long at the green background on the chart
- Go short at the red background on the chart
- The yellow lines are where your stop loss should be for longs
- The orange lines are where your stop loss should be for shorts
I have included the options in Settings to change the stop loss type between ATR derived and Fixed percentage based. The default stop loss is a fixed 7%.
You can also select if you want only longs, only shorts or both.
