When creating a #datacollection system for your #MonitoringEvaluation activities there are 7 steps you can follow to ensure you are building an effective system. Here they are:
Step 1: Map the information flow in your organization & programmes.
• List all actors involved in reporting
• Add those interested in the activities' progress
• Map out how information flows from each department, field office or colleague to another & eventually to you
Then, find out:

• Where each type of information resides
• Who is responsible for providing it

Tip: If you find out that there are various different systems storing information you can consider replacing them with one so as to streamline the overall #datacollection process.

Thread: Parabolic SAR Indicator

Parabolic SAR (PSAR) indicator was developed by J. Welles Wilder.

#PSAR #Indicators #Definedge
The calculation of this indicator is a bit complex, but the concept is extremely useful. I will try to simplify it and explain the logic. I will briefly explain the concept, calculation and reading.

Let us think about creating an indicator that shows the trend.
Using the indicator, we can identify & ride the trend using the trailing stop-loss method.

For trailing the stop in uptrend, indicator needs to be placed below the candle. Similarly, it should be placed above the candle for trailing in a downtrend. We will plot it using ‘dots’.

Keltner Channel - Thread

#Keltner #Indicators #Definedge Image
Chester W. Keltner (1909-1998) was a Chicago grain trader. He worked with successful traders who back-tested trading systems. He talked about Ten-Day Moving average trading rule in his book 'How to Make Money in Commodities' in 1960.
He did not claim that he invented the strategy so origin of this idea is uncertain. But people started referring it as Keltner channel after the book.

There are two versions of Keltner channel. First is explained by Keltner in his book, and the other one is a modified version.

Thread: Adaptive Moving Average (AMA)

AMA is an indicator devised by Perry Kaufman explained in his book Trading System and Methods. It is also known as Kaufman’s Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA).

#AMA #Adaptivemovingaverage #indicators #definedge
Rate of change (ROC) is a study that measures how much price moved up or down from previous bar. The daily rate of change captures the trend. When we make it absolute, captures volatility.

Price went up or down by 10 points = trend
Price moved by 10 points = volatility
So, a price move that shows us a trend, also shows us range. When price is trending, and range is high it reflects strong trend & momentum. When price is not moving in a direction, but range is high, the volatility or noise is more.

Thread: Bollinger Bands

Bollinger Bands® is a wonderful invention of John Bollinger.

#Bollingerbands #Indicators #Definedge
Imagine there are 10 people sitting in the room.

For example, their average height is 165 cm.

This is the average height and there can be a few people taller or shorter than the average height.
If I say that most people (roughly around 70%) will be covered in 10 cm band from the average number (10 cm above average & below average) Meaning, most people in the group r within 175 cm & 155 cm.

This is known as standard deviation (SD). 10 cm in this example is 1 SD.

Have you played Seesaw?

Imagine Bulls and Bears are sitting on either side of the seesaw and playing on your screen 😊

Our formula to understand MFI is “PTV on Seesaw”.
If Current price > Previous bar price = Bullish
If Current price < Previous bar price = Bearish

See this chart. There are 10 prices in this session.

There are 5 bullish sessions and 5 bearish sessions.

Thread: CCI Indicator

Invented by Donald Lambert, CCI stands for Commodity Channel Index.

There are three parts of CCI Indicator: You can remember it as TMC.

#CCI #Indicators #Definedge
While analysing the trend of the price, we can consider closing price, high price or low price. What if we calculate the average of High, Low and Closing price - It is known as a Typical price.

Typical price = (High + Low + Close) / 3
If closing price is exactly at mid-range of candle, Typical price would be equal to closing price.

Understood Typical price? T in TMC stands for Typical Price.

Thread: Stochastic Indicator

#Stochastic #Indicators #Definedge
If we merge last 5 candles and make one. Highest high of last sessions is High of this merged candle, Lowest Low is a Low price of this candle and recent closing price is a close of this merged candle.
Let’s calculate range of this candle.

Range = High – Low

For example, High of this merged candle is 100 and Low is 80. So, the range is 40.

Range of this candle shows, the price range of last five sessions.

#DXone_Indicators [13/03/20]:


The #ADL is a #trendline that indicates #VOLUME. If it goes up, it indicates #BUYING_VOLUME is #high, and vice versa.

It depicts the cumulative flow of money.

Note: It Does Not Indicate Price But Indicates Demand.
ADL to Analyse Historical Bitcoin Movement:

From early January to March, a steady inflow into #BTC with stable price depicts what traders call - #Accumulation. The increase in #volume after the initial #pandemic scare depicts larger renewed interest in BTC than last year.

1/ It seems every #trader has to do the same mistakes as their predecessors. There are #wisdowms you will only understand, if you have experienced them yourself. In this thread I will give you the #wisdom, which can make the difference between being broke and driving lambos #btc
2/ Money is made in big swings

When realizing what profits can be made with trading, many start daytrading and want to #profit from every movement. You won't make more #money. Instead you will lose plenty of time. Watch big time frames and take positions for weeks #btc #trading
3/ When entering a #trade, have targets and a stop loss order

There is nothing more for you to do. There are two outcomes:

-you being stopped out
-you reaching your target

either is fine

realizing losses > being a bagholder
realized profits > unrealized profits
