Box Sideways Market Trade Signal
​Signal for Swing Trade Entry
Signal for Long Term Investment Entry

​Box Trade Setup is designed for Sideways moves when the Market moves between nearly equal Highs and Lows. Watermark Levels on CUE Chart represent the significant Highs and Lows.

Box Trade Setup is meant to be a fast reversing trade. To ensure speed, we use the CUE Stretch/Stretch Release (Bull or Bear Release) signals which are fast.

At the same time, we don’t want to get whipsawed. To ensure that, we take only reversals that occur after exhaustion (Heavy Activity).

Sometimes the latest move may go beyond the Support or Resistance level in the Sideways Market only to come back inside it. Such moves create False Breakouts and are valid Sideways Market Trades.

For Box Trade, profit may be booked either once the Profit equals the Risk amount or when the Market reaches the opposite end of the sideways boundary.

Trade Entry is to be taken only if Potential Reward (distance between Entry Price and Initial Profit Target) is at least as much as Potential Risk (distance between Entry Price and Initial Stop Loss).

Box Charts

  • At point 1, after Bull Release, we waited for Candle color to change to Green before taking Box Long. At Point 2, Bear Release happened on Yellow Candle and Short was taken immediately. At point 3, the Candle had Long Lower Tail and no Box Short Trade was allowed. Both trades 1 and 2 were under False Breakout situation.
