Box breakout strategy
Submit by Dimitry
Darvas Box is a trading system developed by nicolas Darvas that takes into account the maximums and volumes. The principle of Darvas is based on the purchase of securities that exchange new highs and design a box around the maximum and recent lows to establish the entry point and the stop loss order. For example, a currency pair is considered inside in a Darvas box when the price action goes above the previous maximum, but makes a lower quote at a price not far from the maximum price.
The indicator that I propose is that realized in 2013 by Trend Laboratory.
