For these , we set the variable x, the value of which depends on whether the open is higher or lower than the close.
If the close is less than the open, x = H + 2L + C.
If the close is higher than the open, x = 2H + L + C.
When open equals close, x = H + L + 2C
This final value will be one of the most commonly used designs. This is because, as FX is a 24 hour market, the open is almost always equal to the close.
If you look at the throughout the week, the close and the open are really just names. This is in contrast to the stock market, where the open and close are very different things, separated by time and price.
Once we have the and the x-value, we use it to compute the of the base P.
P = x / 4
levels are also calculated from x ( do not use more than one level).
S₁ = x / 2 - H
S₂ = x / 2 - L
Thus, we have seen how to calculate different types of indicator. But how can we now use them in our trade?
First, we can use our anchor point to define the general direction. - If the existing market price is above the key PP level, it suggests a .
- If the market is below the key PP level, it suggests a .
levels are set according to the value of the previous trading day.
+ If the price is below the PP level - priority is given to sell deals, if higher - to purchases
+ Confirmatory signals can be patterns and the indicator
+ The SL level can be set either for a signal candle or for the nearest level
+ Target - movement to the nearest level
Keep in mind that the Level Indicator is not a complete trading system!
Remember that there are no indicators in trading that do not make mistakes, , like any others, require confirmation of their signals. When building your own trading system, use several indicators.
