MT4 Indicators

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start a thread on the deep and mysterious world of MT4 indicators starting with MTFs.

MuiltiTimeFrame indicators are popular on MT4 and a great tool not just for keeping in touch with the higher time frames on the one chart but also to help time entries and exits and staying in trends. The indicator itself has an adjustable time frame setting allowing the current time frame to be adjusted to any higher mt4 time frame so you can either use 1 to flick through time frames or have more than 1 permanently set.

Below is a 15 min Dax chart with a 15 min stochastic and under that is a 1 hour stochastic (same default settings for both). Points of note are the d,k crosses on the 15 min can be muddled compared to the 1 hour, the M15  stoch gives multiple false exit signals to get out of the trend while the H1 stoch has crisp and clear crosses of d,k as well as clear crosses of overbought and sold, stays for the full length of the trend as well as crossing and exiting over sold in good time to catch the emerging new up trend.

Combined they provide the alertness of a shorter time frame with the steadiness of the higher time frame without having to chop and change charts or have multiple small charts covering the screen.

Dynamic Zone Indicators.

Many will have seen DZ versions of indicators such as on the PRT platform, they have floating levels for over bought and over sold but many simply have a Bollinger band component rather than true DZ which is closer related to Quantile bands rather than BB. Having floating OB/OS levels gives them more precision and meaning.

Below is DZ Ehler's Fisher transform on a 1 hour chart giving advance warning of major turning points at OB and OS and good divergence signals.

Adaptive Indicators.

Adaptive versions of an indicator incorporate a slow and fast phase component that allows the indicator 'adapt' to changing price/time conditions.

Digital Filters

This should really have been included before the adapters section as it was the development of digital filters that lead to adaptive indicators.

Digital filter type indicators use a 2 phase system, a fast average and a slow average and expanding on that simple premise a digitally filtered indicator can incorporate;

FATL fast adaptive trend line

SATL slow adaptive trend line 

RFTL reference fast trend line

RSTL reference slow trend line

FTLM fast trend line momentum

STLM slow trend line momentum.

So from the family of digital filters any can be used individually or collectively to give a sliding scale reference between fast and slow periods of the market which can become a stand alone indicator or incorporated into another indicator influencing it's plot on the chart.

Interested if anyone else has any interesting or favourite MT4 indicators of their own?

VOLUME    

Volume indicators depend on a brokers feed and the data used may come from a variety of sources and types. Real volume is units traded, transaction volume is orders executed and tick volume shows how often prices are updated. Regardless of where the data comes from the profile of the volume chart should be very closely related. Also consider the colour codes on basic volume indicators may indicate different aspects, for example, more buy or sell units per candle (web based platform) or greater or lesser total volume compared to the previous bar (MT4 platform).

Hawkeye Volume:

Red denotes sell dominance, green buy dominance and white = neutral or no demand which may indicate a change of direction if control is reversed .

Fractal Volume;

You might think mixing fractals with volume is a crazy idea that will give weird results and you'd be right. An important note on fractals is that many recalculate and redraw depending on subsequent data so they may give signs but not signals. The fractal volume indicator below does both, The large bars (15 and over)  denote possible cyclic turning points but if wrong will erase and redraw so can't be relied upon as a signal. The smaller bars (less than 15) are based on buy or sell dominance which, if coming after a large same colour turning point bar, may indicate continuation in that direction.

Better Volume:  

Better volume tries to pick out significant bars from the crowd, see video below.

High Vol Climax Up = Red.  HV Climax Down = White.  Climax Churn = Magenta.  Churn = Green.  LV = Yellow.

Support & Resistance:

If only there was some means to auto redraw support and resistance and trend lines life would be so much easier.

- Support and Resistance indicator. 1 month - 1 min Time Frames. (I've left out the lower orders to unclutter the chart but really useful if working with small time frame charts 

- Supply and Demand Zones. 

- Trend Lines.

- Murrey Math S&R with Pivots

- S&R Fractals. 1 month - 1 hour Time Frames. (you might recognise it)

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
