PSAR and ADX Combo Trading Pattern – Instructions. 

  • In this trading pattern we are going to trade short term reversals on trending markets.
  • Signals might come when the trend is over & price reverses, a counter trend trade.
  • They might also come after a pull back to jump in the trend.
  • We base these reverse signals on the parabolic SAR with settings of 0.02 acceleration and step of 0.1. 


  • These signals do not work in ranging markets and this is why we also use the average directional index (ADX).
  • The ADX Indicator measures the trend strength without regard of trend direction.
  • The trigger for the ADX is going to be 25 for this pattern to work best.


RULES for the PSAR Indicator

  • We must be in a trending market.
  • In an ascending trend the psar must be below the price.


In a descending trend the psar must be above the price.


  • The first step is to wait for the psar breakout.
  • In an ascending trend we wait for a break of the psar to the downside.
  • In a descending trend we wait for a break of the psar to the upside.

RULES for the ADX Indicator

  • We must be in a trending market.
  • The ADX must be above 25.
  • To draw line use the line drawer tool as you would for drawing support and resistance and insert your line on your adx window right click on the line to edit and and set parameters to 25.



  • If we have a psar breakout but the adx is below 25 the signal is invalid and must not
    be traded.








Okay ladies and gentlemen, this is yet another powerful trading pattern that actually delivers! Expect up to 84% ITM rate when used correctly. Please follow all the rules and confirmations, they are there to protect you from choppy markets. Do not trade this pattern and hour before or after the news!

    Hi Neil

    You can take such trades too as long as the crossover is just one candle back,you dont want to get caught in a pullback.The idea is to get the burst of momentum.

    Hi Ashraf,

    Been following your Psar/ADx system, have a question.

    Notice that quite often the red and blue lines cross before Psar has crossed over.

    Should one ignore this as a trade even though the 25 level is good.

  7. Ashraf

    Hi,Lester, the setting for the adx is default which is a period of 14,what is important for you is to draw the horizontal line in the adx window which you will set a parameter level of 25.This is to validate that the direction you will be trading in is strong enough for price to move in your favor.I hope that answers your question.Let me know if you need further assistance 🙂
