 +==== Nifty Fifty ====
 +
 +=== Strategy Intent ===
 +
 +Follow the Professionals
 +
 +=== Strategy Overview ===
 +
 +This strategy is named after the Nifty 50 which is India'​s benchmark stock market index for their equity market but also because it makes use of the 50 period moving average and multiples thereof.
 +
 +The basic premise behind this strategy is to follow one of the professional traders tactics as follows:
 +  * professional traders look for upward trends using the 50 period SMA. They usually combine this with a 200 period SMA.
 +  * once they identify a strong upward trend they will buy a large position in the opposite direction to the trend.
 +  * the retail traders see this large sell off and immediately sell their positions.
 +  * when the retail traders FUD sell off gains momentum a pull back occurs.
 +  * the professional traders will then take a long position at a much lower price than they could have gotten earlier.
 +  * the professional traders then follow the upward trend and remain in the trade until the trend changes to maximise their profits.
 +
 +This strategy also makes use of a compressed timeframe Bollinger Band to highlight potential entry and exit areas in a similar way to the way Connors 2 period RSI compresses time.
 +
 +
 +=== Strategy Market Conditions ===
 +
 +This strategy relies on finding strong upward trends so while it will work in all market conditions it is best used in a Bull Market.

 +=== Strategy Notes ===
 +
 +  * The key to this strategy is to identify trading pairs with strong upward trends, typically best done in a bull market but they do occur in bear markets as well just not as often.
 +  * ensure you do not overextend yourself by getting your max trading pairs and initial cost right to suit your trading budget. ​
 +  * Use the [[default_settings#​PTTracker_DCA_Calculator|DCA calculator]] we provide to work these values out covering at least 4 levels of DCA for all your pairs. Once you have those values enter them into this strategy. The [[default_settings#​PTTracker_DCA_Calculator|DCA calculator]] also ensures you have a 50/50 split on your trading budget to ensure you have sufficient budget for the sell side of this strategy.
