Can you Use A Stochastic Momentum Index Trading Strategy

Simplified and profitable trading strategy.


The Stochastic Momentum Index offers a simplified approach to trading, especially with Renko bars.

This indicator is easily located with a search on the internet as it is not included in all charting packages, if not found it can easily be coded to suit whichever platform requires it.

I am attaching three charts from today and you will see that it shows a pending change in direction as it approaches and passes the 40 level.






Personally, I use a moving average as shown on the charts as a confirmation.

On each of the charts above, you will easily see how the trend change was depicted, making this indicator a simple way to measure as to when entries and exits can be made.

Each trader will have to adjust the indicator settings to get the chart to talk to him/her vividly, other than that the indicator does not need much else in the way of support.

Study these charts for a few minutes and then have a glance at the articles I have attached to clarify the various applications of the indicator.


Once you have studied the articles and the charts you will be able to easily adapt the Stochastic Momentum Index to your trading system.

I have added an excellent video at the bottom of the page, the author explains in detail as to how she uses this tool.
