The QQE indicator can be used to identify trend reversals and overbought or oversold price levels, similar to the RSI indicator. However, the QQE is known to be slightly slower and smoother than the RSI, making QQE advantageous in avoiding false signals.

In other words, that QQE indicator is commonly used to determine market trends. If the indicator is above the 10 level, it signifies an upward or bullish trend, indicating a potential buy opportunity. In this way, the QQE can act as a filter for trade decisions, allowing traders to open long positions when the indicator is above the 10 level and short positions when it is below.

QQE Identifies Overbought and Oversold Levels

Additionally, the QQE can also be used to identify overbought and oversold market conditions. A reading above 12 indicates a strong market, suggesting a good time to enter a long position. Conversely, a QQE reading below negative 12 suggests a potentially oversold market, indicating a possible short position.

Using QQE For Detecting Divergencs Between Price And Momentum

What’s more, the QQE indicator is a helpful tool for detecting divergence between price and momentum. A bullish divergence is indicated when the QQE indicator sets higher lows while prices form lower lows, suggesting an upcoming bullish reversal. Conversely, a bearish divergence occurs when the QQE forms lower highs while prices set higher highs, indicating a potential bearish reversal. In addition, when the bold line crosses the trailing line, it signals a change in momentum. A bullish momentum is suggested when the bold line crosses above the slow trailing line, while a short-term downside momentum is indicated when the QQE smooth line crosses below the trailing line.
