Trading Volatile Markets Can Be Tricky – Here Are Some Tips to Consider

1. Use smaller time frames to keep up with market volatility.
2. Use the regression slope indicator from the Regression category along with
several lags to anticipate changes in market direction.
3. Use the Peak and Valley Probability indicators from the Turning Points Add-on to
track up and down movements.
4. Change which securities you are trading. A model that stops working well on

make money.)
5. Keep the number of prediction inputs low (around 5).
6. Make sure your input variables are detrended. Use price change rather than
price, for example, or better yet use an indicator that combines several data
streams such as price and volume.
7. Judge model performance on out-of-sample data rather than the optimization
