What does this mean when you only use your volume indicator for reversals?
First, let us define what a reversal is and what that means,
A reversal just means price has changed direction from going up to down or vice-versa. The difference between a reversal and a pullback is that a small counter move to the trend are called pullbacks while a reversal refers to a large price change.
A reversal in price can happen at a key price level, such as a monthly high or low when trading the daily time frames.
There are specific indicators that only focus on identifying reversals which I will supply below.
You can try and use them in conjunction with your current algorithm to see if they create a higher percentage of return.
In the case you are using the volume indicator to trigger a signal for a reversal this means when you decide to trade in the opposing direction your primary, secondary, and volume indicator will be signaling before you open a trade in the opposing direction.
