Please read Trader Manual to understand how Solar Wind works and how to get the best out of Solar Wind.

Why “wind”? Because a trend resembles a wind: it has both direction and strength. A trend is a trader’s friend, so it’s important to know the trend’s direction and strength. Our Solar Wind indicator interprets all of these for you, making trend trading simple!

Solar Wind is a complete trend-trading indicator. researched hard to develop Solar Wind as an indicator that is purely based on ninZaATR and price action, totally not using any moving averages or smoothing in order to minimize lags.

This spectacular indicator has 2 visual plots of the best values for a trend trader, both of which are ninZaATR-based distances from below N-bar low (uptrend) or above N-bar high (downtrend):

  • Trend Vector: A vector provides both direction and amplitude information. Similarly, our trend vector not only tells the trend direction (uptrend or downtrend) but also the trend strength (strong or weak). Easy to read the trend heat!
  • Trailing Stop: This plot is built for trailing stop attachment purpose. You just need to attach your stop to this plot and automatically ride a massive & lasting trend to the very end. Immune from harmful emotions that often kick you out of a great trend so soon.

Here’s how to read “Trend Vector”:

  • If the “Trend Vector” plot is flat, you know that the trend is weak: maybe it has just started, or it’s experiencing a retracement/consolidation, or it has matured with an imminent reversal.
  • If the “Trend Vector” plot heads upward, the uptrend is strong.
  • If the “Trend Vector” plot heads downward, the downtrend is strong.

4 states of the markets (strong/weak uptrend, strong/weak downtrend) are displayed clearly with various visual signals to help you easily read: bar painting, plot colorization, background highlight.

A spectacular feature of Solar Wind is trend step prints, based on the analysis of “Trend Vector” flat segments. Trend step decreases warn of trend weakness and therefore anticipate an imminent finale of trend (please read section 4 in our Trader Manual for details).

Sideways boxes can be optionally shown at trend-switch periods. A sideways box covers the period when the previous trend is weak (matured) and the newly-formed trend is also weak (just started). The first bar closing outside a sideways box marks the moment when the new trend turns from weak to strong, and therefore it’s when you can consider joining the trend.

In this indicator, ninZaATR is used (instead of regular ATR) for better performance. For your information, ninZaATR is's special ATR version that helps improve indicator performance significantly on intraday charts. It is also a standalone FREE indicator for ninZaFamily →

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
