10 things you need to Know about Supertrend
1)Supertrend is a carry-forward strategy that involves overnight gap up/gap down risk and also weekend carry forward risk. It is a trend following system focus on controlling the risk using ATR based trailing stoploss and never predicts the market conditions and chase strong trends till the end.
2)Supertrend normally makes more profit when the volatility increases and make lesser losses when the market shows compressed volatility.
3)Most of the profits are made in gap up and gap down openings compared to the losses made in gapup/gapdown scenarios
4)Should works well with High Beta Stocks and High Volatile Stocks.
5)Supertrend has two input factors Multiplier and ATR. the default value is 3 and 10. Increasing the multiplier will increase the risk and decrease profits. (Tested across all the timeframes). And lower multiplier values will result in more trades which means more commissions and more slippages.to pay.
6)Always start your trade when the past trades in which you hadn’t participated show the worst. Don’t start once you have seen the best best part of profits in the Supertrend indicator. Since Supertrend is a trend following system it goes through a frequent phase of drawdown and hence it is always good to start trading once the strategy is seeing its worst phase.
As the winning ratio is 42% it is not advisable to start your trade once you see the best results of any indicator.
7)Winning ratio is more or less between 40-45% across all the smaller timeframes. (doesn’t includes brokerages and slippages). However, most of the time higher time frame involves high risk in trading supertrend indicators. However on higher timeframe one can use for option selling strategies.
8)It is often emotional and manage a trend following system during drawdown phase as the drawdown could be bigger and at times it could be long lasting for more than 3 months even if it is traded with lower timeframes.
9)It is advisable to trade either index(Nifty/Bank Nifty) or portfolio of symbols. Avoid jumping from one stock to another which could sometimes lead to consecutive losses and even missing the most profitable signals.
10)Risk responsibly as a super trend doesn’t predict anything but just captures the trend when it is there and does risk management when there is no trend.
