The Parabolic SAR (stop and reverse) indicator chart helps traders determine price trends for the asset.
Generated directly from GNY’s proprietary data warehouse, the chart features signals for trend establishment and trend reversal across a 7- to 365-day span. Clicking on the right-hand side of the chart and dragging the highlighted area the desired number of periods to the left allows further personalisation of the viewing period. This facility allows traders to view the chart within the period they most commonly use.
The chart displays as a price candlestick chart with overlaid indicator dots, either above or below the asset’s price.
Uptrend signals occur when the dots move from above the price to below the price and continue to appear below in a sustained manner.
Downtrend signals occur when the dots move from below the price to above the price and continue to appear above in a sustained manner.
Generally, three or more dots sustained together either above or below the candlesticks increase the relevant signal’s strength.
The Parabolic SAR chart constantly generates signals. Higher-quality Parabolic SAR signals are generally produced when a significant trend is present or develops directly following a signal. It is advisable to consult additional charts within the Range Report such as the RSI, Stochastic, McClellan Oscillator, and Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) to help confirm the strength of each Parabolic SAR signal.
