- The Layering Strategy

This is the easiest trading method in the suite!
The goal is to use the TA color of the current and higher timeframe.
Entry:
  • Red On Red: If TA is red on the current timeframe and turns red on TA*2 or TA*4, then go short.
  • Green On Green: If TA is green on the current timeframe and turns green on TA*2 or TA*4, then enter a long position.
Exit:
When TA changes color or a higher unit changes to uncertainty or the opposite color.

- The Extreme Values Strategy

This method is almost as simple; it only involves the current timeframe.
When TA hits the extremes (100 for a bullish trend and -100 for a bearish trend), wait for a color change to enter the trade.
For example:
  • A bearish trend is established, TA is red, and its value is -120. On the next candle, TA increases to -95 and turns orange (or green). Go long.
  • A bullish trend is established, TA is green, and its value is 107. On the next candle, TA drops to 86 and turns orange (or red). Go short.
To exit, wait for a change in color, the inverse extreme value, or a bounce.

- The Stages Strategy

First, it is essential to mention that you will have a better success rate if you enter a long trade when the AMAC is well below -50 and a short trade when the AMAC is well above 50.
Unless there is important news, a trend is considered to take place in several stages. It is a natural construction that is not necessarily linear. During the life of a movement, we will necessarily have some bounces or changes of direction for some candles.
According to the backtests, a trend most often happens in two stages.
A stage is a moment when:
  • we are in a downtrend, but the AMAC is rising for one or a few candles
  • we are in an uptrend, but the AMAC decreases for one or a few candles
Two long entries:
1) AMAC is below 0 and decreasing. There is a first bump in the value of AMAC (but it stays below 0), then the fall resumes. Finally, a second bump happens. We enter a long position at the end of this last bump.
2) AMAC is rising above 0
Two short entries:
1) AMAC is above 0 and decreasing. There is a first bump in the value of AMAC, then the fall resumes. Finally, a second bump. We enter a short position at the end of this last bump.
2) AMAC is falling below 0

- The Line-Crossing Strategy

When the red line crosses the orange line, the bullish (cross-over) or bearish (cross-under) movement is expected to be short-lived.
Similarly, when the red line crosses the yellow line, the bullish/bearish movement is expected to be of a slightly longer duration.
And so on.
So, if the AMAC (red line) crosses under the white line, we can assume that the bearish movement will last for a consequent number of candles.
