Using the Weis Wave Volume indicator in trading

I am going to present two simple trading strategies that are based on the Weis Wave Volume indicator.


The first strategy requires you to combine the WWV with the Exponential Moving Average. The period of the EMA should be set for 30.

The price crosses the EMA when a new trend is created. Then, the indicator will follow the price direction. Used in combination with the WWV, confirms the trend.

You can open a long position when the price crosses the EMA30 from below and the Weis Wave Volume turns green.

Open a short trade when the price intersects the EMA30 line from above and the WWV indicator changes the colour from green to red.

WWV + Heiken Ashi

In this strategy, you will have to change the chart type to the Heiken Ashi candlesticks. Use a 5-minute timeframe. Your position can last 15 minutes or more.

You can go long when the colour of the WWV indicator changes from red to green and the candles on the Heiken Ashi price chart are blue in colour.

Go short when the Weis Wave Volume turns red and the Heiken Ashi chart is red.

The Weis Wave Volume is an effective indicator that can be used to determine the direction and strength of the trend. In fact, you can do it at one glance only.

You can also combine the WWV with the EMA or the Heiken Ashi candlestick to get powerful trading strategies. Just follow the simple rules, wait for the conditions to be fulfilled and open a trading position.

Always test a new strategy in the demo account. IQ Option provides such an account without any costs and you do not risk your money there. Practice as long as you need to and then move to the live one.
