The Epic U-Turn Indicator, is an indicator based on volume and previous price action to confirm that power has switched from buyers to sellers. When intraday or swing trading, these are also known as reversal bars, turnaround bars, or engulfing reversal patterns.

Based on back-testing results of this strategy, the  *magic * of Epic U-Turn is the code to showcase if the turnaround play is a true reversal or just a tug-a-war between buyers and sellers. A label (and scanner) indicator shows the percentage the U-Turn is a true reversal which can optionally post labels for suggested entry and exit. 

How do you know stock is in a reversal pattern? 



Optional settings from stock volume to the size of the turnaround... best reversal indicator for thinkorswim! 

This component has been heavily back-tested with the best results from 15 min and hourly charts. Daily charts also produced great back-testing from 73% of our tests, in trading scenerios which the upper timeframe trend was already going in the same direction (an option to set this to only show these is possible in the indicator!)

1. Anything can happen.


2. You don’t need to know what is going to happen next in order to make money.


3. There is a random distribution between wins and losses for any given set of variables that define an edge.


4. An edge is nothing more than an indication of a higher probability of one thing happening over another.


5. Every moment in the market is unique.
