This strategy combines the 123 reversal pattern and Stochastic oscillator to generate buy signals when the price shows bottom reversal and the Stochastic oscillator also reversed from the bottom. It can effectively identify bottom reversals and the double confirmation filters can reduce trading frequency and improve signal accuracy.
123 Reversal Strategy
Buy signal is generated if the closing price is higher than previous 2 days’ closing price, and 9-day Stochastic fast line is below slow line and below 50.
Sell signal is generated if the closing price is lower than previous 2 days’ closing price, and 9-day Stochastic fast line is above slow line and above 50.
Stochastic Oscillator Strategy
Buy signal is generated if Stochastic %K line crossed above upper band (default 20).
Sell signal is generated if Stochastic %K line crossed below lower band (default 80).
Dual Confirmation
Buy signal is only generated when both 123 reversal and Stochastic strategies give buy signal. Sell signal is similar. This dual confirmation can filter out false signals and improve accuracy.
Dual confirmation filters out noise and improves signal accuracy.
123 reversal catches bottom and top reversals. Stochastic avoids false breakouts.
Stochastic identifies overbought and oversold effectively, great match with 123 reversal.
High optimization flexibility with parameters tuning.
Simple logic, easy to understand, good for beginners.
Dual confirmation may miss some chances and reduce trading frequency.
Stochastic may generate false signals, needs careful examination.
Proper parameter tuning is needed, improper settings affect performance.
Only works for markets with reversal pattern, not for persistent trends.
Strictly follow strategy signals, avoid biases from own judgement.
Risk Solutions: Optimize parameters, strictly follow signals, adjust applicable market condition.
Optimize Stochastic parameters for more stability.
Add stop loss strategy.
Add filters like volume confirmation to improve signal quality.
Test combinations of different reversal strategies and Stochastic.
Utilize machine learning to train and optimize parameters.
Apply strategy on different markets to test robustness.
Explore combinations with other indicators.
This strategy combines Stochastic oscillator and 123 reversal pattern, which effectively catches bottom reversal opportunities. Compared to single indicator, the multi-indicator combination significantly improves signal quality and win rate. Although there is still room for improvement, the overall logic is simple and easy to grasp, making it ideal for beginner’s live trading practice. With repeated testing and optimization, the parameters can become more robust for consistent positive results.
