Intraday Strategy with Narrow Range Theory (NR7)

Refining NR7 Strategy with Inside Bar Theory:

NR7 functions as a method for generating a watchlist, offering various widely embraced approaches for handling stocks identified within the NR7 watchlist (pertaining to how, when, and what factors to consider for entry and exit decisions). 

Among these approaches, one frequently utilized technique involves enhancing the watchlist through the application of inside bars. In this context, the stocks listed in the NR7 watchlist are evaluated to determine if their most recent bar forms an inside bar pattern.

The inside bar strategy is a price action strategy and is also based on the same theory of expansion and contraction but here the expansion and contractions are defined based on different rules.

So, the probability of winning automatically improves.

Intraday NR7 Strategy based on Weekend Theory:

The primary trading idea of NR7 Setup here is –

  • Long if the high of the previous day’s high is broken with stop loss at the previous day’s low.
  • Short if the low of the previous day’s low is broken with stop loss at the previous day’s high.

Example –

#1 Manappuram Finance –

Yesterday, It had the Narrowest Range day in the last 7 days i.e. NR7 day and it was having an inside bar. It trigged buy at the beginning of the day and ran with good momentum.

#2 Axis Bank –

The day before yesterday, Axis bank was having NR7 and Inside Bar day and it triggered sell. That ended in profit.

But, Yesterday, Axis bank had NR8 day because the range created on the NR7 day ended up narrower. But, ironically, this time, it triggered buy. That ended in massive profits.

Intraday NR7 Strategy based on Gap Theory:

In this case,

  • Long if there is a gap up with stop loss at the previous day’s low.
  • Short if there is a gap down with stop loss at the previous day’s high.

But, let’s stick to the first said method only.
