ZTP Cumulative Delta Divergence Indicator

The ZoneTraderPro Cumulative Delta Indicator now has divergence built in making it a more powerful trading tool.  Have you seen divergence indicators that are based on momentum, RSI, MACD?  What good are these?  Why put divergence on a 50 year old indicator that is not based on real time information?

A divergence indicator is only valuable if it is based on real time information, and not other indicators.  The indicator allows you to filter for order size.  This way you have the ability to see only what the large lot traders are doing.

The indicator is now more powerful.  It shows regular divergence, special divergence, and accumulation and distribution.

The chart on the right illustrates how powerful the indicator is.  We see three winning accumulation long trades trades, two divergence short trades, and a divergence long trade.  These trades add up to 25 available points in a little under a 3 hour period.

One of the interesting things about this indicator is that you can have  multiple divergences from key points.

Here we see two long trades that had both special and regular divergences.  Three additional distribution short trades and a long trade complete a very profitable 30 minutes.

Special Divergences

Special Divergences are a unique variation from the regular indicator.  They are unique because what they are showing is a manipulation of the large lot traders.  What the signal is picking up is a lack of supply or demand.  This lack of supply or demand accomplishes two things.  First it washes out weak hand players.  The strong hands already have limit orders waiting to accept the stop orders.  Second it allows these players to get a much better price.

These are great trades because of usually how fast they conclude.  They are normally reversed on a market order which you will see in the next section.  In a period of 30 minutes we see 5 of these trades.  The theory of these trades is that we get a consistent 2 points on every trade.

The Order Flow Trigger

The Order Flow Trigger

There is an amazing trigger to these divergence trades.  This information applies to all 3 types trades of divergence trades.  I have found that in an overall majority of the time, a ZoneTraderPro Order Flow Extension Zone is created 1 tick from the high or low. 

Sometimes, as we see in the above picture, we see an ZoneTraderPro Accumulation Box at the same area.  This is even more preferable because when you think about it, if the large lot traders can accumulate the position, they can guarantee their price instead of having to use a market order.

Also take a good look at the cumulative delta in the picture above.  These signals are not meant to be used in a vacuum.  First, if you took the 1st accumulation long trade, you would understand that ZoneTraderPro would be trading into a Broken Reversal pattern.  With that knowledge, take your 3 points and reverse the trade.  Notice how you also created an extension zone 1 tick from the high at the broken reversal pattern.

When you use the extension zone as a trigger, a significant amount of losing trades are never entered into because you never get a entry trigger.  ZoneTraderPro does not have disappearing signals, and this includes these divergence indicators.  So you can always validate the trading strategy using a static chart.
