    • Firstly, the author recommends using this technical indicator on higher time frame like H4. So, avoid this indicator for shorter time frames. We’ll discuss and learn other strategies and technical indicators for shorter time frame like H1 or 30 minutes.


    • Secondly, the price MUST close above or below the Blue indicator line to confirm the signal. Just “kissing” the indicator line does not give you green signal to risk your money.


    • Last but not the least and most important, this indicator gives false signal sometimes. So, use another recommended indicator Doda Bollinger Bands and Ichimoku along with it to filter out false signals.
