We will shortly be launching the Camarilla Levels indicator which will be available for both NinjaTrader 7 and NinjaTrader 8 and following the succesful launch last month for MT4 and MT5. The indicator is based on the original concept of floor pivots which were popular with floor based exchange traders. The Camarilla levels indicator presents six levels from R1 to R6 and from S1 to S6 with the range between R1 and S1 then designated as the buffer zone. As the price action moves from the various levels and tests other, signals are then delivered by the indicator which help to advise traders of forthcoming potential setups as follows and to suit your trading tactics:
For reversal trading the key levels to watch are S3 and R3. These are levels which when approached signal potential reversals. So when price is approaching and tests the S3 level below the buffer zone, a reversal to the upside may be on the horizon. In other words a reversal from a bearish trend to a bullish trend in that timeframe. Equally, when price is approaching and testing the R3 level above the buffer zone, then a reversal is possible with the bullish price action reversing to bearish. In both cases the next level then denotes the level for the stop loss. For a reversal off the S3 level higher, the stop loss could be placed at S4 and for a reversal off the R3 level, the stop loss could be placed at the R4 level – assuming these levels fit your risk and money management rules.
The potential price targets are then as follows:
For an R3 reversal the profit targets are from S1 to S3.
For an S3 reversal the profit targets are from R1 to R3.
For breakout trading the key levels are the R4 above the buffer zone and the S4 below. These are levels at which the price is expected to breakout from the current region and develop a strong move away from the region. So any move to test and break the R4 level is likely to see price continue higher and develop a strong trend. Equally if the S4 level is tested, then price is likely to continue lower and develop a strong trend.
For an S4 breakout the profit targets are S5 to S6
For an R4 breakout the profit targets are R5 to R6
Using the Camarilla levels in this way offers a complete solution to two distinct approaches to trading, and in addition, also provide potential target levels along with suggested stop loss positions, but as always these must meet your risk and money management rules.
