Best markets for mean reversion


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose?

Thanks for your insight

Is IG platform just lacking indicators and flexibility? Do you pay for MT4? Sorry I could read about it on IG website. I just wonder if it would make a difference to me to switch now I know the IG platform. Hopefully they work in a similar way.

Hi - To answer your question, Crypto is my favourite asset class when it comes to mean reversion because it's the most volatile. It's a lot more volatile than Forex or even stocks. This chart is particularly insightful: https://charts.woobull.com/bitcoin-volatility-vs-other-assets/

no, mt4 🙂 ...

all platforms are similar, learn one and the others are easier to learn, the IG web platform is more a dealing based platform rather than charting based such as mt4, the 3rd party PRT does a good job at being both.

mt4 is free, there is a charge for PRT if low value use (just using for the extras rather than actually trading on). try PRT, IG should warn you in advance if they intend to start charging you for the use of.
