# Classic Bullish and Bearish Divergence PDF

** indices classic divergence** is used as a possible signal for a Indices trend reversal and is used by stock indices traders to analyze stock indices price movement and identify areas where the stock indices price could reverse and start going in the opposite direction. Stock Indices classic divergence setup is used as a low risk entry method when opening a indices trade or when exiting a indices trade.

Classic divergence indices trading strategy is a low risk method to sell near the stock indices trading market top or buy near the stock indices trading market bottom, this makes the trading risk on your trades are to be small relative to the potential reward.** However, this classic divergence indices trading strategy is one method with very many whipsaws and most indices traders do not recommend using it.**

Divergence in Indices Trading is also used to predict the optimum point at which to exit an open indices trade. If you already have an open indices trade that is already profitable, a good method to identify a profit taking level would be to use the point where you spot this divergence indices trading setup.

There are two types of classic indices divergence, based on the direction of the current Indices trend:

## Indices Divergence Scanner

Indices classic bullish divergence forms when stock indices price is making lower lows (LL), but the indices indicator is making higher lows (HL). The divergence indices example explained and illustrated below shows classic indices divergence setup.

**Stock Indices Divergence Scanner - Indices Classic Divergence Scanner**

This stock indices trading divergence example uses MACD indicator as a stock indices trading divergence indicator.

From the above indices divergence scanner example the stock indices price made a **lower low(LL)** but the MACD indicator made a **higher low(HL)**, this shows there is a divergence between the stock indices price and the MACD indicator. This divergence indices signal warns of a possible indices trend reversal.

Classic bullish divergence stock indices signal warns of a possible reversal in the indices trend from downward trend to upward trend - because even though the stock indices price went lower the volume of sellers that moved the stock indices price lower was less as shown by the MACD indices technical indicator. This divergence indices signal indicates underlying weakness of the downward stock indices trend.

## Indices Divergence Scanner

Indices classic bearish divergence forms when stock indices price is making a higher high (HH), but the indices indicator is forming a lower high (LH). The indices divergence scanner example explained and illustrated below shows an example of the classic bearish divergence indices trading setup.

This divergence scanner indices example also uses MACD indices indicator

From the above example the stock indices price made a **higher high(HH)** but the MACD indicator made a **Lower High(LH)**, this shows there is divergence between the stock indices price and the MACD indicator. This divergence indices signal warns of a possible indices trend reversal.

Classic bearish divergence indices signal warns of a possible reversal in the indices trend from upward trend to downward trend - this is because even though the stock indices price went higher the volume of buyers that pushed the stock indices price higher was less as shown by the MACD indices indicator. This signals underlying weakness of the upward stock indices trend.

In the above examples, if you had used divergence to trade you would have gotten good trading signals to enter or exit the trades at an optimal point. However, divergence indices trading signals just like other stock indices indicators, is also prone to whipsaws. That is why it's always good for indices traders using this stock indices trading setup to confirm the divergence indices trading signals with other indices technical indicators such as RSI, Stochastic Oscillator and Moving Averages.

An good indices indicator to combine divergence stock indices signal with is the moving average indicator, in this moving average indicator a indices trader should use the Moving Average Crossover System - Moving Average Crossover Indices Trading System and Divergence Indices Trading

**Example of Moving Average Crossover Indices Trading Strategy**

Once the divergence indices signal is given, a indices trader will then wait for the Moving average crossover stock indices trading system to give a stock indices signal in the same direction of the indices divergence signal, if there is a classic bullish divergence signal, a indices trader will wait for the moving average crossover indices trading strategy to give an upward crossover indices signal, while for a bearish classic divergence stock indices signal the indices trader will wait for the Moving average crossover indices trading strategy to give a downward bearish crossover indices signal.

By combining the indices classic divergence trading signals with other technical indices indicators this way, a indices trader will be able to avoid indices whipsaws when it comes to trading the classic divergence indices signals, because the indices trader will wait until the indices trend has actually reversed and is already moving towards the direction of the divergence trade setup, hence the indices trader will not fall into the trap of picking market tops and market bottoms.
