Dear Traders,

Trading 101: Parabolic SAR Study

  • ... the parabolic SAR is a trend following indicator.
  • ... it can be used to determine a trend and for a trailing stop.
  • ... the SAR works in a trending market, not in a ranging market.
  • ... combine the SAR with indicators designed to determine the strength of a trend.
  • ... you can combine the SAR with the ADX to achieve higher performance.
  • ... the settings can be change to make the SAR more sensitive to the price movement.
  • ... if you change the settings, the performance should be analyzed with a trading journal to see the effects.

Below is a chart of crude oil from last few days, I highlighted the parabolic SAR to visualize the concept above.

If you have any questions, would like to schedule a one on one consultation with one of our series 3 brokers where you can discuss trading, concepts, studies, mental part of trading and much more, fill out this form.
