How do I use the Trade Triangles?

Below are some suggested methods for incorporating the Trade Triangles into your own trading strategy.

For LONG-TERM traders:

Generally recommended for equities, ETFs, mutual funds, and indices.

Monthly Trade Triangles determine trend and possible entry points and exit points.

The last Monthly Trade Triangle issued should be used to identify the overall trend. If the Monthly Trade Triangle is green, you can use it as a potential entry point to a long position. Then you would use the next red Monthly Trade Triangle as your potential exit point. If you were employing a “stop and reverse” type method, you could use this red Monthly Triangle as a potential entry into a short position.

You can use the Chart Analysis Score in addition to other technical analysis studies to ensure the trend strength is appropriate for trading.
