Signal Oscillator indicator for MT4 trading
Histograms are used in various ways by Forex traders to generate trading signals. The most common method is to open a buy position whenever the histogram changes its hue from red to blue, as this is the direction of a bullish market. A Forex trader can set a stop loss at the previous low in the swing and then exit when the color of the histogram shifts.
Conversely, if the color of the bar chart changes from blue to red, it signals the beginning of a bearish price trend. Traders can place a sell trade by setting a stop loss above the oscillator high and exit the trade at the opposite color of the bar chart.
This indicator can be used on all intra-day timeframes and more timeframe charts, such as weekly, daily and monthly. To get the best results, traders can use a multiple time frame (mtf) approach and trade in the direction of the trend on charts with longer time horizons. The increase in price behavior and the proximity of resistance lines and channels as well as the increase in support lines or breakout levels improve the trading results in various ways.
Heiken Ashi provides an average price bar. This allows forex traders to identify what is the direction of a bull or bear market, as well as to buy and sell according to the trend.
