There are so many trend indicators out there but most of them face the same issue: they fail in a sideways or choppy market. Unfortunately, you can hardly find a good indicator that actually helps identify choppy phases.
That’s why ninZa.co set a quest to research and develop powerful sideways detectors, one of which is Sidewayz RT.
Sidewayz RT (RT = Running Total) is based on a running total of bar bias.
- First, the indicator calculates the bar bias of each bar (1: bullish, -1: bearish, 0: neutral).
- Then it plots the N-bar running total of the bar bias values (this N-bar period is called “lookback“).
- A sideways period is detected if the running total is NOT greater than a threshold you define (i.e. it is low enough) for X bars in a row (this X value is called “threshold-met span“).
This super indicator provides full options for you to design your preferred chop filters. Think of it as Photoshop or AutoCAD software, whose real power can only be discovered by users – not the developer.
IMPORTANT: We recommend you use our Easy Trend indicator or any moving average to help identify the major trend direction. You only trade long in an uptrend and only trade short in a downtrend.
In this indicator, ninZaATR is used (instead of regular ATR) for better performance. For your information, ninZaATR is ninZa.co's special ATR version that helps improve indicator performance significantly on intraday charts. It is also a standalone FREE indicator for ninZaFamily → https://ninza.co/product/ninzaatr.
