    The Relative Strength Index or RSI indicator is one of the most frequently used indicators in trading. Unfortunately, the RSI indicator that comes standard with MT4 is lacking a few key features.

    If you have been frustrated with the vanilla version of this indicator, then our customized version just might be what you are looking for…

    Summary of How the MT4 RSI Alerts Indicator Works

    Our custom RSI indicator uses the standard RSI calculation, but it adds a few super-useful upgrades. This is the RSI indicator that should come standard with MT4. 

    Obviously we are a little biased, but have a look and  decide for yourself.

    Our indicator has the following benefits:

    • Never miss another RSI setup when you are away from your computer
    • A colored RSI line makes it easy to see when price is overbought or oversold
    • Get alerts when price moves into overbought/oversold, out of overbought/oversold, or both
    • Customize how you want to receive alerts: screen, mobile app push notification, text message (where available) and/or email. Choose one or more methods that work for you.

    You can customize this indicator by using the following settings…

    mt4-pin-bars.thumb.jpg.3851c3106c1a1866d99223e6bc85cf4e.jpg

    Pin Bars can print at any time and it can be easy to miss a signal when you are at work or even if you have to step away from your computer for a few minutes.

    If you miss a setup, that could have been the trade that made your week.

    So let's take a look at how this flexible indicator can help you virtually eliminate missed Pin Bar setups…

    Summary of How the Pin Bar Alerts Indicator Works

    The great thing about Pin Bars is that, unlike more complex chart patterns, they are easy to define so you can setup an alert to tell you when they appear.

    This custom Pin Bar alert indicator for Metatrader 4 will notify you whenever a Pin Bar that meets your criteria prints on your MT4 charts. You can be notified via popup, email, text and/or MT4 mobile app push notification.

    Choose one or more of the notification methods that work best for you.

    You can also mark the Pin Bars on your charts, or you can hide them and only utilize the alerts feature. Hiding the markers keeps your charts squeaky clean and makes it much easier to analyze price action.

  9. Stop Missing Valuable Trading Setups


    Join Traders Who Trade The Same Chart Patterns You Do

    Ever wonder how some traders seem to be able to take advantage of every juicy chart pattern that appears, while you always spot them a few hours too late?

    Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret…

    Many times, these traders have some sort of notification system or private trading group that tells them about setups, as soon as they happen.

    …or they are full-time traders and can spend hours in front of the screens.

    If you are not a full-time trader yet, then I’m sure that you want to give yourself the best shot at going pro. That means you need to get these notifications too.

    That’s where the Trading Heroes Elite Community can help…

     

    trading-charts-2.png.c0ba63d75670650b2a9312066139f8d5.png

     

    How It Works

    call-out.jpg.b74eebe7cc9507a1d563c157a7c0a3f2.jpg

    Trading Heroes Elite is a group of dedicated traders who trade specific chart patterns. Each chart pattern has its own group.

    Members give each other a "heads up" when a possible opportunity is available. 

    Only join the groups that discuss the patterns you are interested in trading. Setup your profile so you only get notifications at the times that are good for you. 

    Use the mobile and/or desktop platform that works best for you.

     

    Charlie's Got Your Back

    chartbot.jpg.cce624d9f9af8a5ae541c2a9a191ad99.jpg

    Charlie the Chartbot is also part of the community. He never sleeps and he spots opportunities that group members are looking for.

    He looks for chart patterns with specific parameters. Charlie currently watches Oanda charts. We may add more brokers later, but that is what we have right now. 

    Charlie's notifications are free, when you become a member of Trading Heroes Elite. You can also opt to only receive Charlie’s notifications and not participate in the conversation with other traders.

     

    Who This Community Is For

    Educated Traders 

    If you have taken the time to educate yourself on how to trade specific chart patterns and the chart patterns we identify work for you, then the Trading Heroes Elite Community can help you.

    Without proper education, this community will not benefit you.

    Busy Traders 

    You probably have a day job or other responsibilities that can take you away from your charts. That’s why we watch the Daily and 4 Hour charts. 

    If you trade the same timeframes, then this group might be for you.

    You Value Simplicity

    If you don’t want to mess with setting up Metatrader or a VPS, then our community just might be your best solution. We handle all of the tech stuff so you are free to trade.

    Get all of the benefits, without all of the setup and maintenance.

     

    Who This Community Is NOT For

    Traders Looking for "Hot Tips"

    Since the community will identify several opportunities every week, you will need to decide for yourself which opportunities work with your system and which ones won’t.

    This is NOT a signal service. It is a discussion community.

    A Purely Discretionary Trader

    If you don’t trade technical chart patterns, trade lower timeframes, or trade primarily on fundamental news, then this community probably isn’t for you.

    We help each other spot specific technical chart patterns on the Daily and 4 Hour charts.

    New Traders 

    If you are just getting started in Forex trading, then this community is not for you. You need to learn the basics first.

    This means learning a trading method and testing it out before you ever risk money in the markets.

    Pin Bar Group

    pinbar.jpg.48fa1cf91009bba5cbe97d529cdf6b52.jpg

    Charlie the Chartbot detects Pin Bars with the following characteristics:

    • Tail is 66% of the total candle size
    • Close is higher than then open, for a bullish Pin Bar
    • Close is lower than the open, for a bearish Pin Bar
    • Get notified if it is a bullish or bearish Pin Bar
    • Daily and 4 hour charts only
    • 27 major and minor currency pairs on Oanda charts: AUDCAD, AUDCHF, AUDJPY, AUDNZD, AUDUSD, CADCHF, CADJPY, CHFJPY, EURAUD, EURCAD, EURCHF, EURGBP, EURJPY, EURNZD, EURUSD, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPCHF, GBPJPY, GBPUSD, NZDCAD, NZDCHF, NZDJPY, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY

    I know what you are thinking right now...but what about  _________ (fill in your favorite optimization)?!

    We purposely keep it simple because there is no such thing as a perfect Pin Bar. Remember, Pin Bars are simply clues to what price will do next and all traders don't trade them in the same way.

    That's why we also include the human element in the Pin Bar Group. Post your ideas and see what others are trading!

     

    Outside Bar Group

    outsidebar.jpg.47ef44406d145edf8fa63c19c277e865.jpg

    Charlie the Chartbot detects Outside (Engulfing) Bars with the following characteristics:

    • Price closes within 25% of the low (bearish) or high (bullish) of the candle
    • Close is higher than the open, for a bullish Outside Bar
    • Close is lower than the open, for a bearish Outside Bar
    • Body of the candle is at least 40% of the total candle size
    • Get notified if it is a bullish or bearish Outside Bar
    • Daily and 4 hour charts only
    • 27 major and minor currency pairs on Oanda charts (same as above)

    Again, we include the human element in the Outside Bar Group to catch Outside Bars that don't fit this criteria. Post your ideas and see what others are trading!

    How Much Money Is Slipping Through Your Fingers?

    Before we talk about price, ask yourself:

    How much profit are you losing out on because you're missing your best setups?

    For the right traders, one successful trade a month can more than pay for their membership in this community.

    On top of that, setting up your own chart pattern notification system on a VPS will cost you much more...and you still have to get it programmed...and maintain it.

    Why not have someone take care of it for you?

    You get this for a one-time charge of only $17. This membership fee is non-refundable. 

    See you inside!

  10. Level Up Your Trading with an Accountability Buddy 

    Having accountability buddies is a proven way to keep you on track and stay accountable to your trading goals. 

    But it can be hard to find the right people to work with. 

    That's where this group can be a huge help. 

    How It Works 

    This is how to find a buddy: 

    • Join this group and post your profile. Instructions are provided inside. 
    • Browse other profiles and contact traders that look like they would be a good fit for you. 
    • Try them out as a trading buddy for 1 month. 
    • At the end of the trial period, you both agree to be honest and tell the other person if you want to continue or not. 
    • If it works, then great! You have found a trading buddy. 
    • If that person wasn't a good fit, then try someone else. 

    This is for a lifetime membership. So if one person doesn't work out at some point, you can always find another person in the community. 

    See you on the inside!

  12. Automatically Calculate Trade Lot Size By Percent Risk

    in Forex Tester 2 and 3

     

    Backtesting is one of the best ways to test a discretionary trading strategy. It is also a fantastic way to practice your trading strategy and keep your skills sharp.

    Forex Tester is the best way that I know of to manually backtest.

    Period.

    But if I had to choose one major shortcoming in Forex Tester, it is the lack of an automatic lot size calculator.

    You see, most traders that I know use fixed fractional risk. I usually don't risk more than 1% per trade.

    But there hasn't been an easy way to automatically calculate lot size based on percent risk…

    Until now.

    Speed Up Your Backtesting

    Manually calculating lot size in your head or by using a spreadsheet may not seem like it takes a long time. But those few seconds spent before every trade can add up, making your backtesting less efficient than it could be.

    Since this is a script and not an EA, it won't slow down Forex Tester. 

    Save time and brain power by using the Snapdragon Easy Order Entry Script for Forex Tester 2 and 3. This script is easy to install and allows you to automatically calculate lot size, based on your predefined percent risk per trade.

    Here's an example of risking 0.9% on every trade.

    Percent risk per trade

    Standard Entry

    This script gives you the option of entering by using pending order levels or doing a bracket bar entry. Let's take a look at the Use pending order levels option first.

    Pending order entry

    In order for the script to automatically calculate the lot size for you, a pending order will have to be created. You cannot use a market order because the script cannot change an existing live trade. It's like entering a trade in your live trading account, then contacting your broker and telling them that you want to change the lot size on the last trade.

    So setup a pending order that is a few pips above (buy) or below (sell) the current market price, then set your stop loss accordingly.

    Don't worry about the lot size, the script will automatically recalculate it for you. 

    Shortcut keys

    Once your pending order is entered, hit the shortcut key that you have setup for a long or short trade inside the Easy Order Entry Script. When the entry level is hit, the script automatically recalculates the lot size to match your desired percent risk.

    That's it!

    Bracket Bar Entry

    A common entry method is to place a stop loss below/above the current bar and an entry order on the opposite side.

    For example, if you think that this is a good place to go long, you would put your stop loss below the current bar and an entry buy stop above the current bar.

    Bracket entry

    This script makes it super easy to enter trades in this way. Setup the script, then simply hit the shortcut key on your keyboard. No more setting the stop loss and pending entry manually. The script does everything for you.

    You can also setup a predetermined buffer between the candle and the entry level.

    If you don't trade in this way, then you can simply use the Standard Entry method mentioned in the previous section. 

    Risk Multiple Profit Target

    This script also makes it easy for you to set fixed R profit targets. If you don't need this feature, then you don't have to take advantage of it.

    But if you do use fixed risk multiple profit targets, this feature will literally cut your order entry time in half.

    Here's what an automatic 5R profit target would look like.

    Risk reward profit target

    This can also be a quick way to test different profit target levels, based on R multiple. For example, a 2R profit target might work well for you right now. But you may find that a 4R profit target improves your results dramatically.

    You will never know unless you test it.

    Luckily, this script makes it easy.

    The best traders find ways to create small advantages in the markets.

    These advantages may not seem like much on their own. But when you stack them up over months and years, they add up to significant improvements in their trading performance.

  14. Daylight Savings Adjusted Forex Backtesting Data

    For Forex Tester 2 & 3

     

    Forex Tester has helped more traders become consistently profitable than any other training software I know of.

    But there a few "quirks" that you have to put up with when you use Forex Tester. One of the biggest is in the historical data that they provide.

    Even if you subscribe to their paid data service, the data is not adjusted for Daylight Savings Time (DST).

    Here's why that matters...

    How to Maximize Your Trading System Profits

    Let's say that you have a trading system that is consistently profitable, but you want to find out if there are ways to optimize it. One of the first things I recommend looking for is time-of-day patterns.

    Is there a time of day when trades are taken, that tends to be most profitable? 

    Here is an example of actual results from a round of backtesting that I did with Snapdragon Historical Data. Note the hours that are marked with red arrows.

    Time of day analysis

    They are only one hour apart, but they have very different win/loss ratios. 

    Since I used DST adjusted data, it is very clear that trades should be opened after midnight because the win/loss ratio is much more favorable. 

    If I had used data that was not daylight savings adjusted, these two timeframes would have been blended together.

    So this potentially profitable optimization would have been masked, if I used the standard Forex Tester data. 

    Snapdragon Historical Data gives you the most accurate backtesting results possible.

    Period.

    ...and what if you don't have a profitable trading system yet?

    Well, why not start with the best data right now? This way, you can have rock-solid confidence in your backtesting results from day one.

     

    Your Backtesting Results Could be "Lying" to You

    Having correct time-of-day information in backtesting could determine your success or failure. 

    To illustrate how, let's take a look at a theoretical trading system that has the most winners when trades are opened during the start of the New York session. The percentage of winning trades by entry time looks like this.

    Optimal trade entry time

    Let's say that you know this because you have a good friend who is a successful trader and these are her verified trading stats over the last 5 years.

    This is fantastic because you have a "head start." You know exactly how to test the system and when to take trades. 

    So you only enter trades setup during the New York open. But when you backtest the system in Forex Tester, you don't get anywhere near the same performance.

    In fact, your results are pretty terrible. 

    This might lead you to think that the system doesn't really work and your friend must be doing something different. In reality, your entries are one hour off for part of the year, which could be screwing up your results. 

    So you might brush aside this very profitable system, when in reality, the problem is not with you or the system...it's with the data!

    You need to have accurate data to get profitable insights.

     

    Laser Accurate Data From a Trusted Industry Veteran

    Adam Hartley Founder of SnapDragon Systems

    Adam Hartley is the Founder of Snapdragon Systems Ltd. and has created trading software for some of the biggest fund managers and institutions in the world. Past clients have included Barclays Capital, the Tudor Group (yes, Paul Tudor Jones), Headstart Fund and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

    The bottom line is that he knows what traders need because he is a trader himself and has been building institutional-grade trading software since 1996.

    Data for Adam's Historical Data Service comes from his carefully selected, reliable and trustworthy Forex quote provider. Since you are getting data from just one data source, it is much more accurate than when it comes from data providers who average the prices from multiple data feeds.

    Experience and quality is the difference between Snapdragon and most of the other data providers out there. 

     

    Uploading Snapdragon Historical Data is a Breeze

    After you have downloaded the historical data files from inside the members area, simply open Data Center inside Forex Tester. Select the currency pair that you want to update, click on the "Import from a file" button and upload the file.

    It's as easy as that!

    Frequently Asked Questions

     

    Who would benefit the most from this data?

    This data is for Forex traders who are serious about optimizing their trading strategies. Traders who trade on the four hour and daily timeframes will usually benefit the most from this data.

    Do you provide refunds?

    We do not provide refunds. If we provided refunds, it would be too easy to just sign up, download the data, then get a refund.

    Can I cancel at any time?

    Yes, you are free to cancel your subscription at any time. If you need updated data in the future, simply start up your subscription again. If you cancel, your subscription will still be valid until the end of your current billing cycle.

    Does this data work for Forex Tester 2 and 3?

    Yes, it will work with both programs.

    How far does the data go back?

    The data goes as far back as 2006.

    What is the smallest timeframe of data available?

    This service provides 1-minute data.

    What markets are covered?

    The currencies are all pair combinations for the eight major FX markets, so all combinations of EUR, USD, JPY, GBP, CHF, CAD, AUD and NZD, making 28 markets in all. In addition there are some CFD markets covering the some stock indices (Dax, S&P500, Nasdaq 100) and commodities (Corn, Copper, Natural Gas, Soyabeans, Wheat and Crude Oil) as well as some precious metals (Platinum & Palladium, Silver, Gold).

    How is the data time-stamped?

    This is an issue that concerns many people when backtesting Forex data, especially for the longer time-frames such as four hour and daily where the time that the bar closes becomes an issue. The basic timestamp is for UK trading but whilst the data timestamp can be shifted at the time that it is loaded into the Forex Tester platform there is the important issue of the two week discrepancy between daylight savings in the US and Europe. As people tend to want two different kinds of solutions to this issue, we supply two sets of data.

    For those of you who are trading H4 and daily time-frames, you'll probably want the Constant New York Close Time. Simply import the data into Forex Tester, shift it forward by +2 hours and you'll get the H4 closes and end of day closes all synchronized to the New York close.

    1. Constant London Opening Time

    With this version, the raw data is adjusted forward by one hour during British Summer Time. This means that the London Opening is always at 8 a.m. UK time. However during the two week divergence the New York close will not happen at 10 pm.

    2. Constant New York Close Time

    With this version the raw data is adjusted forward by one hour during US daylight savings time. This means that the New York open is always at 10 pm UK time. However, during the two week divergence, the London Open will not happen at 8 am.

     

    Stay Ahead of the Competition

    One final thought before I leave you to your backtesting...

    Forex trading is an ultra-competitive game and you are trading against some of the smartest and most cunning people in the world. You need every advantage you can get, to extract consistent profits from this market.

    Being aware of how time-of-day affects your trading systems is one of the simple optimizations that can have a huge impact on your profitability.

    The great part is that it is an easy thing to test, once you have the right data.
