1. Analyst Opinion Indicator

This indicator will superimpose TRADING CENTRAL's analysts research, forecasts, commentary and key levels (support / resistance / targets / stop pivots) onto MT4 live charts on most actively traded instruments.Based on selected timeframes it will display the latest opinion of our analysts: whether on an intraday (30min chart), short term (daily chart) or midterm (weekly chart) basis.You can program and fill in orders based on analysts levels.


2. Adaptive Candlesticks

Candlestick charts illustrate changes in the underlying supply/demand lines or the constant fight between buyers and sellers. The interpretation of candlestick charts is based primarily on patterns. There are dozens of candlesticks patterns and mastering them all can be a daunting task. We have done this hard work and selected 16 patterns we think best represent market psychology or emotion, and have combined them with our unique quantitative and technical expertise. TRADING CENTRAL Adaptive Candlesticks (TCAC) will mark any MT4 chart with valid open-high-low-close prices with patterns we believe are the most appropriate for decision making while removing patterns less relevant in the context of what occurred before in the market and technical analysis. TCAC will recognize for you in real time reversal and continuation candlesticks patterns to enhance your trading skills and timing. You can use TCAC to better enter and exit the market while also managing your risk more appropriately. Best of all, this approach can be used on any time frame, from one minute bar to monthly or more bar. Although TCAC does not provide price targets it provides useful timing signals and can be combined with our ANALYST OPINION INDICATOR.

3. Adaptive Divergence Convergence Signals

Inspired by MACD, ADAPTIVE DIVERGENCE CONVERGENCE (ADC) adapts its effective lengths to changing market conditions (shorter in trending markets, longer in sideways) and becomes more practical for short-term trading by avoiding excessive signals and guarding against sideways markets. In addition to ADC's equivalent of MACD's indicators, two consistent oscillators (one slow, one fast) are also harvested from the analysis to help support trading decisions. Whilst its various lines all derive from the same window of market data, they do have some independence from each other. This allows decisions to be made on the basis of weight of evidence. ADC is particularly easy to optimize since it has only one parameter, and of the same reason almost impossible to overfit.

1. Probabilistic Market Classifiers

It is a true but frequently-overlooked fact is that the majority of indicator-derived trading signals lose money in sideways markets. The root cause is that the logic behind their design implicitly views the markets as either bullish or bearish and lacks a strategy for dealing with sideways. Even where a strategy exists there is a problem of knowing when a sideways period has begun so that it can be applied. PROBABILISTIC MARKET CLASSIFIERS (PMCs) deliver probabilities of markets being bullish, bearish or sideways based on Bayes' rule and market classification. They offer a capability to confirm a market class indicated by a trading signal so that unconfirmed trading signals can be ignored and potential losses avoided. The onset of a sideways market may also be an opportune time to look at selling options and PMCs are probably unique in offering both entry and exit signals to take advantage of the decay of time premiums.

The PMCs will give you a probability between 0 and 100 for a bearish, sideways and bullish market.

You can also combine multiple periods for a better probability outlook. We recommend using 5, 8 and 13 in the input periods parameter. Probabilistic-2

2. Probabilistic Stops

An obvious reason for wanting probabilistic stops is to bring greater consistency to the chances of being stopped out; by finding a best-compromise price to allow for normal fluctuations but trigger the stop if the underlying price moves against the trade. Statistical pedigree of probabilistic stops allows their usage to be extended to at least two applications: (i) assessing trading risk before entering a trade and (ii) in combination with support and resistance data to generate probability-related entry signals.

Unlike standard time series with a single data point at each time step, market time series usually arrive in the form of bars of open, high, low and close prices. For the purpose of calculating price movements likely to trigger stops, high and low price extremities from a signal line need to be taken into account. You must be familiar with the average (mean, µ) of a series of data points and their dispersion around that mean (standard deviation, s). A Gaussian distribution describes random noise and is based solely on a mean and standard deviation. For the present purposes the salient property is that the probability of noise deviating from the mean can be related to the number of standard deviations.

The rationale for stop orders is to protect a trade from excessive losses. The fact that there is a trade means that there are external reasons for believing prices will move in a certain direction. Stops need to be wide enough not to be triggered by routine price fluctuations but close enough to be triggered if the underlying price signal (i.e. local mean) behaves contrary to expectations. Given this requirement, a stop should reflect the reasonable limit of price fluctuations from wherever the local mean (µ) is currently.

This means that if a suitable local mean and standard deviation can be found, the probability of the stop being triggered by noise fluctuations alone can be related to the product of a 'width' parameter (w) and a local standard deviation, built or hung from a local mean; i.e. µ ± w s with the sign depending on whether it is a buy (+) or sell (-) stop.

The width parameter (w) may vary depending on the instrument and strictly should be found by trial and error for each instrument. In practice, a value of 2 seems to work quite well for most, which is consistent with a value often used for Gaussian-based confidence limits.

In the input parameter box you can chose the length and width of the probabilistic stops you want to set-up.

1. Regularised Momentum

Momentum can be a noisy quantity that needs to be averaged before sensible inferences can be made. Frequently, the inferences needed are turning points preceding price turning points. Lag associated with averaging and too many minor momentum turning points impair the quality of trading inferences. Regularization is a smoothing technique,acknowledged to be better than that from averaging alone, which can remove unwanted momentum turning points and offers less lag for the same degree of smoothness. As a result, momentum’s trading significance is concentrated into those turning points that remain; so profitable inferences are much easier to make. A further by-product is an ability to create useful momentum indicators and oscillators with very short lengths; to offer an early warning system of impending price moves.

2. Regularised Buying Selling Pressure

BUYING SELLING PRESSURE (BSP) reflects the underlying tendency of close prices to cluster near the highs in an uptrend and near the lows in a downtrend. BSP is a noisy signal and regularization helps in getting rid of noise and thus makes it useful as a trading indicator.

Regularised RSI

RSI is defined in Wilder’s 1978 book 'New Concepts in Technical Trading systems' and is widely documented. It is used as an operand with an exponential smoothing constant of one and regularization parameter typically of unity. This usage means regularization is being used only for smoothing.
