#8 TD Sequential by Tom DeMark

Here goes another study by Tom DeMark.
I've pulled this system from my archives on Alex's request.
...And since we have a custom MT4 indicator already available, we have a new method to test and trade upon.

Quote about TD Sequential method:

"Currencies have long been praised for their capacity
to trend, but in today’s market, an objective
countertrend technique might be a forex trader’s
most valuable asset. TD Sequential is designed to
identify trend exhaustion points and keep you one
step ahead of the trend-following crowd."

Happy trading!

Edward how successful have you been trading TD sequential ?


I haven't actually had a chance to put this one to the test. It's been sitting in my archives and if not for a request from a trader recently, I'm not sure when I would have actually returned to it again.

Could you post the simplified rules for taking a trade? Please !

Even I have not been able to fully understand the rules based on those 2 pdf files.
As per my understanding, once 9 consecutive bars have formed a trade setup, then a countdown starts and we take trade after the perfected 13th bar, right??
So, we have to wait for both the correct setup to form followed by a 13 wave coundown before actually initiating a trade based on this indicator?
Can you please throw light on this?

Thank You

and let me add, that if trendlines and this indicator from tom demark seems to be interesting, I would love to see the other indicators from Tom demark added here, like tom demark moving average and tom demark range projecting - both of which helping to project future,
In all, i read that there are 17 indicators from Tom Demark.

I have the book on daytrading options by the DeMarks. The authors indicate that the sequential setups can be traded by themselves as long as the qualifier related to the 6th bar is met. Otherwise, you use the countdown method. They say the methods can be used in any time frame (even 1 minute), but should be done so within the context of a trend in a longer time frame. There is also a risk that the bar labelled "9" may not be the last in the sequence. I think a test is required to determine the ratio of profitable trades, in different time frames.


Pulled out yet another variation of the indicator and simplified description:
