Leading vs. Lagging Indicators

Leading and Lagging Indicators in ForexWe’ve already covered a lot of tools that can help you analyze potential trending and range bound trade opportunities. Still doing great so far? Awesome! Let’s move on.

In this lesson, we’re going to streamline your use of these chart indicators.

We want you to fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of each tool, so you’ll be able to determine which ones work for you and which ones don’t.

Let’s discuss some concepts first. There are two types of indicators: leading and lagging.

A leading indicator gives a signal before the new trend or reversal occurs.

A lagging indicator gives a signal after the trend has started and basically informs you “Hey buddy, pay attention, the trend has started and you’re missing the boat.”

You’re probably thinking, “Ooooh, I’m going to get rich with leading indicators!” since you would be able to profit from a new trend right at the start.

You’re right.

You would “catch” the entire trend every single time, IF the leading indicator was correct every single time. But it won’t be.

When you use leading indicators, you will experience a lot of fakeouts. Leading indicators are notorious for giving bogus signals which could “mislead” you.

Get it? Leading indicators that “mislead” you?

Haha. Man we’re so funny we even crack ourselves up.

The other option is to use lagging indicators, which aren’t as prone to bogus signals.

Lagging indicators only give signals after the price change is clearly forming a trend. The downside is that you’d be a little late in entering a position.

Often the biggest gains of a trend occur in the first few bars, so by using a lagging indicator you could potentially miss out on much of the profit. And that sucks.

It’s kinda like wearing bell-bottoms in the 1980s and thinking you’re so cool and hip with fashion….

For the purpose of this lesson, let’s broadly categorize all of our technical indicators into one of two categories:

  1. Leading indicators or oscillators
  2. Lagging, trend-following, or momentum indicators

While the two can be supportive of each other, they’re more likely to conflict with each other. We’re not saying that one or the other should be used exclusively, but you must understand the potential pitfalls of each.

领先指标 VS 滞后指标


               我们已经向你介绍了许多工具,来辅助你分析潜在的趋势,以及 在有限范围内的交易机会。是否还能做得更好呢?太棒了!让我们继续吧。

       在这门课中,我们将教你如何简化的使用这些指标。

       我们想让你充分的明白每个工具的优缺点,因此你才能够判断出,哪些工具可以和你联手,哪些工具不行。

       接下来,先让我们讨论一些概念。指标分为两种类型:领先滞后的

      领先 指标给出信号时,都是在新的趋势 或 反转发生 之前

       滞后的 指标给出信号时,往往是趋势已经完全形成 之后,然后才通知你“嘿,伙计,睡醒了没,这趟趋势早开始咯,你的宝船早就溜走了。”

       你肯定这样想,“噢噢噢噢...,我只要使用领先指标,就可以快速致富了!”因为现在你能在新趋势开始时,就获得利润。

       你这样想是没错的。

       如果 领先指标每一次的信号是正确的话,你将“抓到”每一段完整的趋势。但这是不可能的事。

       当你使用领先指标时,你将会习惯的接收到很多的假信号。领先指标可是以发出假信号,而臭名昭著的。它肯定会“误导”你的。

       明白了吗?领先指标,会“哄骗”你的?

       哈哈哈。。。朋友,我们已经笑得前仰后翻了。

       另一种选择是使用滞后指标,它不会那么容易的给你假信号。

       滞后指标只有在价格的波动,形成一种明显的趋势时,才会给出信号。它的坏处是:你的进场,将会稍微晚一点。

       通常一个趋势最大的涨幅,就是在刚开始时的几根棒子发生的,所以使用一个滞后的指标时,你就肯定会错过大部分的利润。这真是烂透了。

       这有点像在90年代穿着喇叭裤,你还认为自己是多么的有型,而且那么的时尚…….

       在这节课里,我们把所有的技术指标,都分为两大类:

           1. 领先指标 或 振荡器

           2. 滞后指标 或 趋势跟踪指标

       虽然这两种指标,同时可以彼此支援,但他们更容易相互抵触。我们不是说,只能单独的使用 其一个,但是你必须了解每一个指标的潜在缺点。
