This strategy combines multiple technical indicators to identify price reversals, making it a multi-factor driven reversal trading strategy. It integrates the 123 pattern with the Polarized Fractal Efficiency (PFE) indicator, entering trades only when both agree on the signal to filter out false signals and improve win rate.
The strategy consists of two main components:
123 pattern identification: A buy signal is generated when the close is up for 2 consecutive days and then down on the 3rd day, with Stochastic fast line below slow line. A sell signal is generated when the opposite occurs.
PFE indicator threshold: PFE above upper limit indicates sell signals, PFE below lower limit indicates buy signals.
Trades are entered only when both 123 pattern and PFE indicator agree. If not, position is flat.
The 123 pattern identifies potential reversals. PFE measures trend efficiency to avoid false breakouts. Together they improve accuracy through multi-factor confirmation.
Mitigations:
The strategy can be enhanced through:
This strategy combines multiple factors to identify reversal points, providing theoretical soundness and ease of implementation. The multi-factor approach improves accuracy over single indicators. Further improvements can come through parameter optimization, stop loss management, portfolio combinations and more.
