Which indicator is best for Forex?

This also depends on your trading strategy, but one of the most popular for FX traders is the Relative Strength Index (RSI). RSI highlights a temporary oversold or overbought condition in the market. An RSI value of over 70 represents an overbought market, and a value below 30 suggests an oversold market.

Where are the indicators in MT4?

Start by opening your MT4 platform. Click on the Navigator window at the top left-hand side of your screen and open the folder labelled Indicators. Choose the indicator you’d like to use and drag it on to your price chart. A small window will pop up in front of you where you can set your chosen limits and start using your indicator.

How do I know when to buy or sell in forex?

We don’t mean to repeat ourselves here – but this also depends on your trading strategy. In the main, traders tend to follow the principle that the best time to trade is when the market is active or even volatile. Liquidity is an important factor too. It also helps to keep a close eye on the latest price trends, as a sudden hike or drop or prices could offer potential profit opportunities for traders on the ball.

FXSSI.CurrentRatio — Overview

When talking about trading “against the crowd” or trading on sentiment, what we mean is the analysis with the buyer/seller ratio, also know as SSI (Speculative Sentiment Index).

It is the most easy-to-use and intuitive indicator for a novice trader and probably the most popular one for the same reason.

Current Ratio Indicator

The Current Ratio indicator shows the ratio between buyers and sellers currently being in the market. The ratio data comes from several major brokerage companies and some services, such as ForexFactory.

To display the open position rate as a chart, you need a separate FXSSI.Ratios indicator.

The indicator takes into account only currently open trades, while the closed ones don’t affect it.

The given indicator provides data on the long vs short ratio (i.e., client positioning) from 10 sources for 12 Forex pairs (these figures may change over time). Today, there are numerous sources of the ratio of positions, but we use only the most relevant of them in our indicators and tools.

The indicator is used for:

  • Medium-term trading;
  • Determining a trade direction;
  • A quick assessment of a trend state.

The Current Ratio indicator is not resource-intensive and is rather compact, making it almost a must-have tool in the arsenal of every trader regardless of the strategy being applied.

Why Is It Important to Analyze the Long/Short Ratio?

According to a popular belief, about 95-99% of traders lose their money in the market, i.e., they trade at a loss. Therefore, trading in the opposite direction from most traders can be profitable.

This indicator was developed specifically for such a quick assessment of the current sentiment of most traders.

The ratio of the positions of traders

The image above shows the easiest analysis method using this indicator. The blue bar represents the percentage of buyers, while the orange one reflects the percentage of sellers.

If most traders go long, you should look for a short position. If most of them expect an asset to drop in price, you should consider a long position.

Trading With the Indicator

The basic idea of how the indicator works is not to open a trade in the same direction as most traders in the market do.

By following this simple principle, you’ll increase your chances of making a successful trade.

Besides, when you trade against the market majority, you trade with a trend, since most of the trades are always open against the trend.

Buy Signal

Current Ratio Buy Signal

You may go long when:

  • Most sources signal Buy (green circle);
  • The signals are distributed equally;
  • All the sources don’t give any signals (gray circle).

Sell Signal

Current Ratio Sell Signal

You may go short when:

  • Most sources signal Sell (red circle);
  • The signals are distributed equally;
  • All the sources don’t give any signals (gray circle).

As you can see, the main idea is not to open a trade in the same direction as most retail traders do; however, if there is no such a majority, you can open a trade in any direction.

To increase the win-rate of signals, you can develop your own strategies using this indicator. For example: “Open a trade only when three or more sources give you a Buy signal, while none of them shows a reverse signal.”

Indicator Features

Some of the indicator features:

Signal “lights”. The given feature allows you to interpret the indicator readings quicker. This is because we perceive and convert colors into information much faster than numbers.

current ratio signal column

You can specify the conditions for the signal to appear in the indicator settings on your own. For example, if the value is 40% or less, the signal will be green; if the value is 60% or more, it will be red. Gray color represents a neutral signal that occurs when the indicator value ranges from 40% to 60%.

Current Ratio Average Formula

The custom formula for AVG (average value) – enter your own formula for calculating the average buy/sell ratio value.Input format: OAN = 2; MFB = 2; IGG = 2; BLU = 1; SSI = 1, where

  • «MFB» – three-character code of the source;
  • «2» – the share of the source in the average value.

You can add or remove sources from the formula, as well as specify any weight coefficient.

Minimizing. You can minimize the indicator panel by clicking on it or set minimizing as default.

When minimized, the indicator is still informative, since it indicates the direction of the maximum number of signals.

Let’s consider the example above. When maximized, we can see 3 Sell signals and 1 Buy signal. When minimized, we see the number “3” and the red “light”.

If we have 1 Sell signal and 1 Buy signal, the one which value is furthest from 50%, will be displayed.

Auto settings. The indicator is equipped with a feature of automatic detection of color scheme and time zone.

For your convenience, we have implemented the Automatic Indicator Update system. Now you just need to restart your terminal to get the latest version. The indicator will inform you about it in a separate window.

Indicator Settings

Brokers. Select those available brokers that should be displayed on the indicator panel (“On”) and those that you want to disable (“Off”).

Average Formula. Specify the brokers and their weight in the suggested format to include them in calculating the average value.

  2. By broker’s weight;
  3. In the descending order of values.

Indicator Size by default. Determines the state of the indicator panel (minimized/maximized) when you start your terminal or switch a timeframe.

Show Average Ratio. You can use this parameter to disable displaying the average value on the indicator panel.

Signal Ratio. Specify the SSI value, above which the indicator will signal the Buy or Sell. You can specify the values from 1 to 49. If 40 is set, the Buy signal will be generated when the long/short ratio is 40 or less, and the Sell signal will be generated when it is 60 or higher.

Color Scheme. By default, the indicator automatically detects the color scheme depending on the chart background. If necessary, select the desired color scheme from the list.

Indicator Position – selects the chart corner to place the indicator panel.

Vertical, Horizontal Offset – sets the offset (in pixels) from the selected chart corner.
