Fade The Swing Model


  1. Pinpointing Swing Points:

    • Swing Identification: Identify swing highs and lows on the price chart. Swing highs denote peaks where prices reach highs before declining, while swing lows represent troughs following a decline.

  2. Seeking Confirmation:

    • Evidence of Reversal: Wait for robust confirmation post-identifying a swing point. This may involve observing technical indicators, candlestick patterns, or divergence signals, indicating the market's readiness for a change.

  3. Adopting Contrarian Positions:

    • Positioning Against the Trend: Upon confirmation, take positions contrary to the short-term trend. Short at a swing high or long at a swing low, leveraging the market's tendency to rebound from extremes.

  4. Strategy Execution and Adjustment:

    • Active Market Monitoring: Maintain vigilant market monitoring. Modify or exit positions based on evolving market conditions or upon reaching predetermined profit or loss thresholds.


Strategy Insights:

  • Fading as a Profit Exit and Re-entry Strategy: Fading a swing point doesn't invariably signal the end of a move; instead, it can serve as an opportune moment to exit profitable trades. Waiting for a "ball bounce" movement provides an opportunity to re-enter at improved prices. Swing points frequently coincide with divergent highs or lows, signifying a potential reversal.

  • Divergence Consideration: Divergence at swing points, where price action and indicators like the OTS Green Line move oppositely, validates a possible market turnaround. This dual confirmation enhances the strategy's efficacy, offering a clearer signal to fade the swing.
