The “Trap Indicator” in Quantsapp is a feature that predominantly indicates the trapping of Option Sellers into a “short squeeze” or a “Long squeeze.” This indicator only shows when the option sellers can get trapped if the underlying asset moves against their position. This signal only provides the probability of a trapping situation and not a confirmed signal.
This indicator provides 5 signals based on the activities of Option Sellers, which are:
These were the five tabs within the indicator that displays all the necessary data that a trader needs to follow while trading with this indicator.
Apart from these, the Trap indicator has some other features as well. One can back-test the indicator by choosing a date and viewing all the buy and sell signals provided by the indicator. It will also show the return percentage which was achieved by following the signal. In the same way, the indicator also plots the signals on a chart of the desired underlying asset of the user.
There are two types of trap in option trading. Let’s figure out each.
Bull trap occurs when traders think that the price of the stock will continue to rise. This assumption is based on market trends. In reality what happens is that buyers create a manipulating false sense to pressurize into buying stock which will automatically raise the price.
Bear trap on the other hand is when the manipulators take advantage of the downward trend in the stock market. In reality, the buyers create a false alarm that stock price will not go down after a certain level and it will change. But guess what? It goes more down creating a trap.
To conclude, the Trap Indicator by Quantsapp is a unique tool that not only identifies a trap situation of Option sellers but also provides a trading opportunity to profit from it. It is very straightforward to use as it provides all the necessary data as the entry and exit price. It also provides the buy or sell signal based on the data and the percentage of the total return based on the entry and exit provided. This indicator can be useful especially for Option buyers who could take a trade based on the indicator.
