Qstick Indicator trading strategy

  • If the indicator line is moving down and after falling below the ‘zero’ line, this indicator signaling a selling signal. ( again I’m repeating this if the indicator is moving downward direction then after crossing the ‘zero’ level, the indicator is giving a selling signal). this is generally for a short-selling signal.
  • If the indicator line is moving upward direction, after crossing up the ‘zero’ line. this indicates the buying signal.
  • when the indicator line falling down too much, this can be an oversold zone. and share reversal possibility in this situation. and share price can rise, so you can take a buy position.
  • when the indicator line was rises too much, this can be an oversold zone. after the oversold zone, the stock price may fall. so if the share price reversal is started then take a short sell position.
  • Sometimes share price touching higher high and this indicator line is not touching u higher high, this is the bearish divergence. the share price may fall soon.
  • Sometimes share price is hitting lower low and the indicator is not touching the lower low point. this is called bullish divergence. the share price may rise soon.


Sometimes the stock price is crossing up the ‘zero’ line. and after buying the share its suddenly touching the zero line. and sometimes the stock price is crossing down the ‘zero’ line then after selling the share then the indicator is started rising and crossing up the ‘zero’ line. so in this situation .this creates lots of falls signals.

Divergence also not properly identified. sometimes you can buy or sell shares to see the bullish and bearish divergence then the indicator later you found the that was not a divergence. that was some noise. and this will always confused to trade.
