Trading filters/confirmations is key to determine and to signal a trader on which side to trade the market. Trading filters/confirmations are strategies used to analyze the market. A trader should never trade off one strategy and should always combine strategies together to get a better read of the market. Trading filters/confirmations allows a trader to trade only what “they” see and to trade with the momentum of the market.
