Trading using the DeMarker indicator on IQ Option
If the DeM line is fluctuating around the 0.5 value, the markets are ranging and there’s no clear trend. It’s best to sit back and wait until the line moves above the 0.7 or below the 0.3.
If the DeMarker line rises above the 0.7 a downtrend is imminent. However, you can also enter a buy position once you notice the DeM line approaching the 0.7 value.
If the DeM crosses the 0.3 line, you can enter a short sell position. Once it starts rising towards the 0.3, it’s a signal for an upcoming uptrend. Place a long buy position in this case.
The DeMarker indicator is a good way to identify a developing trend. If it shows an uptrend, enter a buy position and vise versa.
