My Trading Tools for MT4

Recommended Posts

After a decade of trading experience, I've successfully created three highly effective indicators tailored for various market conditions: Martin Armstrong Cycles, MIDAS Trading Tools and the FX Capital Flow Scanner. I'm excited to now share them with the IG Community! ūüėä

These indicators are designed specifically for use on the MetaTrader 4 terminal. The indicators will expire 2025.01.01 ->1 year license. If you wish to continue using them after expiration, please contact me for an extended personalized license.


NUMBER 1: Martin Armstrong Cycles [Download Link, Zip File]

Martin Armstrong Cycles
 applies an untraditional type of technical analysis to your charts which is designed to capture the ANGLE of the market, RAPID RALLIES and DECLINES, PRICE REVERSALS and PRICE FLIPS.

I recommend all traders to apply cycles to their charts, because they reveal the true nature of markets. Everything in the universe has a cycle to it - and so does price!

Analytical Benefits using Cyclical Analysis

  • The¬†ANGLE¬†of the cycle gives you a¬†ROADMAP¬†into the future as to what type of move you can expect
  • The¬†STEEPER¬†the angle the greater the tendency for a market to rally or decline¬†RAPIDLY
  • The¬†Break-Line represents the¬†CYCLICAL¬†LIMITS¬†of price - an important¬†PRESSURE POINT¬†in the market
  • If¬†price breaks the Break-Line chances are high that a¬†RAPID RALLY¬†or¬†DECLINE¬†will follow


  • The Reversals tells you when a market could¬†BREAK¬†to the upside or downside
  • Buy/Sell signals are formed when price breaks through a reversal on a¬†CLOSING¬†basis


  • Trap Plays are formed when price breaks a reversal but then¬†IMMEDIATELY¬†closes back¬†ENGULFING¬†the breakout bar, causing a¬†MASS EXIT
  • The¬†Trap Play has the¬†HIGHEST WIN RATE¬†out of¬†80.000 DIFFERENT PATTERNS!


  • Price Flip 9 warns of a potential¬†DIRECTIONAL CHANGE
    - Buy Setup occurs when there are 9 CONSECUTIVE closes lower than the close 4 bars earlier
    - For Sell Setup, the requirements are OPPOSITE, there are must be 9 consecutive closes higher than the close 4 bars earlier
  • Countdown 13 calculates the trends length to identify the moment of its¬†FADING¬†and the emerging of a¬†NEW CYCLE
  • The Risk Level associated with Price Flip 9 and Countdown 13 defines the¬†LEVEL¬†of which price should turn within

NUMBER 2: MIDAS Trading Tools [Download Link, Zip File]

MIDAS which is an acronym for Market Interpretation/Data Analysis System is the innovative work of the late technical analyst Paul Levine. Levine strongly believed that the dynamic interplay of support and resistance and accumulation and distribution are the ultimate determinants of price behavior. After examining and rejecting all of the standard technical analysis techniques for determining support and resistance, he came up with a new approach - MIDAS!

The introduction of the MIDAS Trading Tools indicator has been a culmination of my trading experience and creative application. New ideas have been implemented and collaboration with other traders such as Robert Young (US) have helped make this indicator enriched and dynamic. In the readings below, you will find the description of the variables that make up the indicator.

MIDAS Trading Tools consists of TWO stand alone indicators for each type of market environment:

  • MIDAS Support/Resistance Curves - reveals¬†powerful support & resistance levels¬†as well as a method to gage the¬†relative strength¬†of a given trend


  • MIDAS Top-Bottom Finder Algorithm - monitors the available fuel¬†in an accelerated trend¬†to¬†predict¬†the¬†top¬†or bottom¬†based on the cumulative volume



How To Use: Basic Strategy & Concept

  1. Identify the origin of a trend in any market.
  2. Attach MIDAS to your chart.
  3. Click and hold on the Red vertical line and drag it to a recommended anchor point.
  4. Wait for price to pull back to the MIDAS Support/Resistance curve and generate a buy or sell signal.
  5. Enter the market when a signal is formed with a minimum risk to reward ratio of 1:1+.
  6. If price accelerates away before pulling all the way back to the MIDAS Curve; fit the Top-Bottom Finder to the present pullback(s) (by adjusting the cumulative volume in the bottom right corner) to predict the top or bottom.
  7. When the Top-Bottom Finder burns out at 100%, a retracement to the MIDAS Support/Resistance curve becomes likely.
If you are brand new to the MIDAS Trading System and interested in discovering the powerful trading method developed by the late Paul Levine, I recommend reading: MIDAS Technical Analysis: A VWAP Approach to Trading and Investing in Todays Markets. The authors walk you through the wonderful MIDAS world and explain its variations with copious charts and examples. Start off by reading the introductory chapters, then jump to the very practical money-making Chapter 8 and apply the principles yourself.

NUMBER 3: FX Capital Flow Scanner [Download Link, Zip File]

  • Perfect for all levels of trading experience, beginner or professional
  • You will always know what to trade and in what direction
  • You can add¬†any currency related symbols such as¬†Gold (XAU/USD), Silver (XAG/USD) and Bitcoin (BTC/USD)
  • 28 major currency pairs as default settings


How does it work?

The model have two important moving averages, one fast (5) and one slow (12), they are used to determine whether the direction of a currency pair is bullish, bearish or neutral. Example, when the model is measuring the strength of EUR, it will look at all EUR related pairs (EUR/USD, EUR/CAD, EUR/CHF, EUR/GBP, EUR/NZD, EUR/AUD, EUR/JPY) to see what pairs are trading with, against or neutral with EUR and score the order flow of EUR accordingly. EUR is measured against 7 other currencies, so the score range from -7 to +7. 
+7 is the highest score possible and means that EUR is making gains against all other major currencies. Therefore the order flow is strong because EUR is being bought on a global scale. There is a genuine interest to buy EUR so to speak.
-7 is the lowest score possible and means that EUR is decreasing in value against all major currencies. Therefore the order flow is weak because EUR is being sold on a global scare. There is no interest in purchasing EUR, only selling.
When the scanner have performed the order flow analysis on all currencies it will combine the strongest against the weakest and display the results on the dashboard. These will be the pairs with least resistance moving forward and the best pairs to trade. You can double-click on the pairs listed on the dashboard to open a new chart. In parameters you can select what template the new chart will open with.

Potential buy on USD/JPY? :) USDJPYBuy.thumb.png.50181de99ce31774b4fc66c82f6c61a4.png

Trade cycle composite high in alignment with cyclical resistance. Temporary high seems likely ? :) 
Supporting a high is the TD 9 Sell Setup that formed a few bears earlier.US30.thumb.png.e8f344669cdbc7b05b1f7c4ddd24cabe.png

    • Apple‚Äôs recent stock weakness marks a divergence with other members of the Magnificent 7 and the broader Nasdaq 100. Source: Bloomberg ¬† Indices¬†Shares¬†Apple Inc.¬†Artificial intelligence¬†Price¬†iPhone Written by:¬†Chris Beauchamp¬†|¬†Chief Market Analyst,¬†London ¬† Publication date:¬†Friday 01 March 2024 13:26 AI Efforts in Question Apple's¬†stock fell below $180 on Thursday for the first time since early-November, underperforming the broader market. While the¬†S&P 500¬†and tech-heavy¬†Nasdaq¬†indices posted solid gains, Apple¬†shares¬†slipped around 1%. Source: Google Finance The decline comes as doubts loom about Apple's artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives. Rivals like¬†Microsoft¬†are delivering strong earnings growth tied to burgeoning AI technology. This was highlighted by Tuesday's report that Apple is discontinuing its decade-long electric vehicle project. Back in 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called the autonomous car endeavour the "mother of all AI projects." Stock Underperforms Broader Market So far in 2024, Apple shares have dropped 3%, trailing the S&P 500's 7% gain and the Nasdaq's 9% climb. Despite its long-term market-beating returns, Apple has recently lagged the S&P 500 on 6-month, 1-year, and 2-year timeframes, according to FactSet data. After spending most of 2021 to 2023 as the world's most valuable public company by market capitalization, Apple surrendered that crown to Microsoft in January. Microsoft's sales and profit growth have far outpaced Apple's, which posted negative growth in its 2022 fiscal year ending last September. AI Investment Hints but Details Lacking At Wednesday's shareholder meeting, Cook suggested Apple is "investing significantly" in generative AI. He said more specifics will be announced later this year. UBS analyst David Vogt predicts Apple's first major AI launch will come in June at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. iPhone Sales Weakness Looms In addition to AI uncertainties, expectations for weak iPhone sales growth continue to weigh on Apple. iPhones accounted for 58% of Apple's total revenue last quarter. Some See Positives in Car Project Halt Some analysts see a silver lining in the halt of Apple's electric car plans. It enables the company to refocus AI talent on nearer-term products with greater market potential. To Morgan Stanley, it also shows Apple's "cost discipline." Apple analyst rating LSEG (formerly known as Refinitiv) data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‚Äėbuy‚Äô for Apple with 10 strong buy, 17 buy, 13 hold and 2 sell ‚Äď and a mean of estimates suggesting a long-term price target of $201.41 for the share, roughly 16% higher than the current price (as of 1 March 2024). Source: LSEG Technical outlook on the Apple share price The Apple¬†share price¬†continues to precariously weigh on its $180.30 to $179.25 support zone which consists of the January-to-February lows. A fall through and daily chart close below this area looks increasingly likely and would lead to levels being reached which were last traded in early-November with the 3 November low at $176.65 representing the first downside target. Apple Daily Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView Further down sits the $174.49 August low below which key support can be spotted between the September and October lows at $167.62 to $165.67. Were the $180.30 to $179.25 support zone to hold, though, a rise and daily chart close above last week‚Äôs high at $185.04 would need to occur, for a recovery off the support area to gain traction. In this scenario the Apple share price would trade back above its 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $183.90 and target the 55-day SMA at $188.50. This will continue to favour a fall through support at $179.25 to take place as long as the Apple share price continues to trade below last week‚Äôs high at $185.04. ¬† ¬† This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.¬† ¬†
