The idea behind this strategy is to trade based on the agreement of the intermediate or long-term trend and the short-term trend signal as provided by the QQE indicator.
For our intermediate or long-term trend, we will be using the commonly used 100 Exponential Moving Average (EMA). This moving average parameter is popular among traders and because of that, many traders look at it for guidance as to the direction of their trades. By trading in the same direction as the bulk of the market, we increase our chances of having profitable trades.
As long as the price is above the 100 EMA, we will only be taking buy trades. If the price is below the 100 EMA, then we will only be taking sell trades.
As for our short-term trend signal, this will be determined by the location of the QQE in relation to its midline, which is 50. However, it wouldn’t be wise to be taking just about any buy trade when QQE is above 50 or sell anytime the QQE is below 50. We just don’t know when the price might reverse especially when the short-term trend has run for quite some time and may already be overextended. Instead, we will be trading only when the QQE crosses 50 in the direction of the long-term trend based on the 100 EMA.
