This indicator was discovered when I was studying daily charts for some currencies. What I found out was there are quiet days and then there are days when there are strong movements. I started thinking … what if there is an indicator hidden somewhere in the daily charts that can tell us how the day would progress for a currency pair based on first few hours of trading or based on how much the pair has moved in a particular direction. This is where I found out the below indicator.


First setup the chart with daily period frequency (see the pairs where this has successfully worked below in the test results section.). Now keep the average of distance between open and close points for last 5 sticks handy. Now watch the pair movement for the current day. If the pair rises 3 times or more as compared to the 5 days average of distance between open and close go long. If the pair falls 3 times or more for the day as compared to the average of last 5 days, go short. If you want a mathematical formula that depicts this condition, here it is:

if open[0] > ask and if average of open – close for last 5 stick < 3 times the open[0] – ask go short. Vice-verca means go long.

Exit Criteria

You must have realized by now that most of my indicators are very basic. What makes them successful is the exit criteria. In this case also, the same logic applies. However, in this case the exit criteria is also very simple. All you do is close the trade at the end of the day.

Risk warning: Before deciding to participate in the Forex market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange foreign exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of a currency or currency pair. More over, the leveraged nature of forex trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. The possibility exists that you could sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and be required to deposit additional funds to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement, your position may be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.
