DMI And Bollinger Bands Sideways Strategy


Markets don’t always trade in a clear direction. At a closer look, most of the time, they move sideways. Relying on trend-following strategies all the time can thus lead to repeated false signals in such conditions.

However, before you can safely trade sideways, you have to identify the most suitable market conditions. The main features of such strategies are:

  • Short-term trades, with quick entries and quick exits
  • Slightly contrarian and mean-reversionary
  • Require some indicator that tells you it’s a sideways market

The DMI And Bollinger Bands Sideways Strategy incorporates such features to bring you a profitable alternative when the regular trend-following systems stop working. You can read more about the strategy here.
