DeMarker - great for picking tops in downtrend

Picking tops and bottoms within trend.

DeM is one of the best forex indicators to accurately find overbought and oversold zones. Coupled with technical analysis or trend identifying indicators, DeM is relatively reliable in picking low/high price level that is in accordance with major trend. Similar to oscillators such as RSI or Stochastic, signal is only considered valid once it returns between 0,3 and 0,7 lines. (Forex strategy combining MACD and DeMarker forex indicator)

Divergence at top of the market may signalize trend reversal.

Divergence trading:

DeMarker can be effectively employed to confirm divergences on forex market. Divergence manifests itself as price creating new high/low in what seems to be a trend continuation. Meanwhile DeMarker fails to draw new high/low. This indicates that trend may be losing its momentum and its more likely to reverse.

Ranging market identification:

DeM with values between 0,3 and 0,7 indicates mostly indecisive and relatively quiet market. DeM values in overbought / oversold zones may be sign of imminent reversal but they can also signalise beginning of new trend.
