Figure: Trading the NASDAQ stock with LRC strategy
Professional traders use the linear Regression Curve indicator to identify the prevailing trend of NASDAQ. Long term trader set the value of period LRC indicator to 100 which gives much more accurate and stable reading. If the price is trading below the LRC line, it is said to be a downtrend whereas price trading above the LRC line indicates uptrend.
In the above figure, the price breaks the 100 LRC line near a key resistance level. Professional long-term trader waits for the price to retrace back and forms a bearish candlestick confirmation pattern in the key resistance level. The short trade is executed by the trader with the bearish engulfing pattern formed at the key resistance level below the LRC curve. Tight stopples are placed just above the confirmation candlestick pattern while taking the trade. Usually, traders carry their trade until and unless the price hit a major support level with possible bullish reversal candlestick pattern.
