U96 Sembcorp Ind price action on HABBSTS trading system

Heikin Ashi Bollinger Band Stock Trading System

HABBSTS or Heikin Ashi Bollinger Band Stock Trading System uses a 3 -indicator combo on the weekly time frame. It consists of:

  1. 13-week Bollinger Bands
  2. Heikin Ashi Candles
  3. 3-week exponential moving average displaced/offset by 2

This is a trend following trading system although it is also superb for visualising major turning points. Not meant for short term speculation, it is a mid to long term trading/semi-investing method.

This system was explained in great detail in this post ‘Testing: Weekly Heikin-Ashi-Bollinger Stock Trading System‘.

We may or may not be looking at a major turning point depending on the following setup to appear:

  • Heikin Ashi closes in red by end of this week.
  • Dotted trend line support below is broken.
  • Current /\/\/\ pattern breaks neck line, confirms triple top reversal pattern.

Successful application of this trading system depends on:

  1. Whether one believes in the Heikin Ashi colours or not? (Warning: This is weekly chart. Until a week is over, Heikin Ashi colours can re-paint intra-week if day to day price fluctuations are drastic.)
  2. Whether one can stay on a trend (stay with a colour) until the end.
  3. Whether one is unfortunate enough to encounter the occasional pocket of volatility where candle colours change nearly every week.
