Advantage Lines Indicator

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The proprietary Advantage lines, included in Bulls 'n Bears Trading System plugin, have been developed to help eliminate whipsaw versus a typical short-term type moving average trading system. The main advantage of a typical short term moving average trading system is that it provides early entry signals to potential trading opportunities and trend reversals. This is also the disadvantage to the same type system as it can have whipsaw or a "head fake".  Advantage lines were engineered to give the best of both worlds - early entry signals and avoid whipsaw.

Example of Advantage Lines

(Once you click on the chart, the Preference tab will go back to chart settings.)
