The parabolic SAR indicator, developed by J. Wells Wilder, is used by traders to determine trend direction and potential reversals in price.
The indicator uses a trailing stop and reverse method called “SAR,” or stop and reverse, to identify suitable exit and entry points.
Traders also refer to the indicator as the parabolic stop and reverse, parabolic SAR, or PSAR.

Alerts

  • When the SAR reverses

Signals

Strong LongWhen the SAR is below the price (and if EMA values are entered EMA fast is above EMA slow)
Weak LongThis signal only appears if EMA values are entered and SAR is below price but EMA fast is not above EMA slow
NoneNever
Weak ShortThis signal only appears if EMA values are entered and SAR is above price but EMA fast is not below EMA slow
Strong ShortWhen the SAR is above the price (and if EMA values are entered EMA fast is below EMA slow)

If only one of the EMA values is specified, that EMA is combined with the SAR based on it’s slope. A Long SAR becomes Strong Long and a Short SAR becomes Weak Short if the slope is rising and vice versa with a falling slope.
If both EMA values are set to zero, the SAR will only give Strong signals.
