We are driven by our vision


How can one determine when a correction is likely to occur? We need more technical facts to build a case.  Candlestick reversal patterns are another aspect we can use.  When reversals occur, typically there is a telling formation with the candlesticks that acts as confirmation. 

By painstakingly hand coding a list of these candlestick reversal patterns, I’ve added a secondary confirmation when we see encroachment on a Bollinger band combined with a candlestick pattern. 

This can be used to predict corrections, or portend momentary dips in a trending market to add to enter a position or add to one.

The Momentum Indicators

The three momentum indicators are:
  1. Kovach Momentum – measures very short term momentum ‘spikes’
  2. Kovach Chande – measures mid term momentum
  3. Kovach OBV – measures long term momentum
Using a combination of the above, a user can ascertain the overall trend (using the long term momentum), and the retracement (using the shorter term momentum).  This is highly valuable to identify optimal entry points.  One never wishes to buy at highs, for example.  Optimally, one would wait for momentum to recede, and the price to pullback to enter a trade.
These indicators can overlay on top of a chart, or (preferably) reside in their own window below the main chart window.

The Reversals Indicator

Finally, the reversals indicator, Kovach Reversals, consists of two key concepts:
  1. Bollinger Bands
  2. Candlestick Reversals
Bollinger bands measure volatility by calculating the standard deviation.  Based on statistics, one can anticipate corrections to the down side when the price encroaches on the upper Bollinger Band, and corrections to the upside when the price encroaches on the lower Bollinger Band.  This is not the case in strongly trending markets.
