Playing Divergence with a Triangle

Don't just play a two-point divergence. Instead, play a three-point divergence forming triangles, especially if the apexes form opposite of each other.

i dont get why you are following the yellow line in the indicator below(OBV?) on one triangle, then following the yellow and the black on the other triangle?

@madLyfe,

Thanks for catching that. That was a drawing Boo Boo Here are two examples (a single triangle and a double). Double triangles diverging are very powerful. Rare, but if the two apexes (of double triangles) form in opposite direction, its a knockout.

Current BMT User Poll

Should sim traders that pretend to trade cash be allowed on BMT?

 
LOL i must be half asleep but i am trying hard to see the difference between what you call a single versus a double triangle. In both cases in your example, i see a single triangle. Never heard of that triangle perspective before, where does it come from ?

This indicator you are using seems to be quite reactive to small swings. What is it called ? And what's your settings if it is available to all ? Thanks

you know that all of this is just regular divergence.. and that double triangle thing you put up is a regular triple divergence.. just draw a line across the tops of price and the indicator peaks.. dont need the extra two lines for the triangles..
