- The cloud comprising of a 10 period and a 30 period .
- When the cloud is green you should be looking for long entries.
- When the cloud is red you should be looking for short entries.
- Price is most above a green cloud and most below a red cloud.
- Being within the cloud indicates indecision.
The blue and white lines on the indicator show the relationship between price and momentum.
They can be used to spot reversals in two ways:
- The first is a divergence between price (blue line) and (white line)
- If the price makes a lower low but the makes a higher low this shows the trend is weakening and may be reversing soon (as can be seen by the two yellow lines on the chart).
The second is a simple crossover:
- When the white line crosses the blue line to the upside this signals a long entry.
- When the white line crosses the blue line to the downside this signals a short entry.
Then I'd like to set an alert when the 10 crosses the 30 and the MFI is above 75. Tradingview doesn't allow this natively, unfortunately.
By adding the MFI, there's less chance of a false positive. This because I have noticed the MFI is below 75 when there's no real outbreak, and above when there is.
Hope you can help with this? :)
The issue with adding indicators such as RSI or MFI to the chart is that you need to normalise them to the price values so 75 will become another value such as 9000. If you don't do this it'll be out of scale and basically invisible on the chart.
I've been using it mostly to trade forex & crypto basing my trades off the 15min chart but making sure the trend is not contradicting the higher timeframes.
