Advanced Currency Strength28 Indicator USER MANUAL

This indicator is part of a complete trading strategy!

The 28Pairs Currency Strength Trading System - also known as Double-GAP Strategy - is our primary trading philosophy and is based on exploiting individual currency strength and weakness. Please click here.

What is Advanced Currency Strength28 Indicator?

It is the first of its kind in Forex Trading to show CURRENCY STRENGTH with a new formula and very new features!

ACS28 V3

There are big differences with common currency strength indicators. We have invented is a new formula to calculate currency strength and the very new features Market Momentum and dynamic Market Fibonacci Levels which adapt to current market activity! Market momentum is the 9th line. It lets you know if the Market is active or passive. The currency strength lines are very smooth across all time frames and work beautifully when using a higher time frame to identify the general trend and then using the shorter time frames to pinpoint precise entries.

  • Each time frame is optimized on its own!
  • Multi-time-frame settings.
  • Each currency is handled by its own characteristics!
  • Market Fibonacci levels for currency strength are applied. They are dynamic and adapt to the actual market activity.
  • Arrows to show strong currency momentum GAP in the sub-window.
  • Warning signs for individual chart when a currency is in oversold/overbought zone (outer market Fibonacci levels) in the main window.
  • Hit- and pullback/reversal alert when currency strength drops back from the outer range.
  • special cross pattern alert.
  • Data calls from external pairs are reduced.
  • Automated support charts to speed up broker feed.
  • Buttons to quick change chart.

That's why all traders say it is the best currency strength indicator.

Ones the indicator is added to only ONE chart the indicator gives you the signals for all 28 forex pairs and also draws the historical signals and momentum on the actual chart.

You have the historical view and you can optimize the settings to your trading style and timeframe!

ACS28 version 3

The arrow in the subwindow shows when a currency line reached the required minimum angle/slope. In the picture above it is the value 23 which represents the distance between the zero line and the 23 Market Fibonacci. This way the zoom of the chart will not affect the results. The value is editable.

New features in version 3.0

Outer market Fibonacci hit (here with input 161)  Warning Alert.

Showing here currency strength line CAD has reached lower Market Fib -161.

Now make attention. If you are already in a trade to check if it is advised to take your profit or to trail your stop loss into profit.

If the price is near S/R, supply/demand price is likely to pull back because CAD strength is exhausted.

outer MFib 161 hit CAD

Same chart as above some time later.

We had already the alert of CAD hit outer market Fib. Now the green currency strength line CAD is pulling back from lower outer range into the inner zone. The purple stopper sign is printed above the candles.

Meaning the CAD weakness is strengthening. The actual chart is USDCAD. So CAD is quote currency. In this case, we have to invert. A stronger CAD means for usdCAD to sell.

outer MFib 161 hit CAD

Again sometime later:

The green currency strength line CAD is further rising and crossed the white zero line. CAD might go further but now the base currency USD has hit the Market Fib -161. Which means again for the actual pair USDCAD to make attention. So if you sold USDCAD you would now think about to take profit or trail the stop loss into profit. And the game starts again...

outer MFib 161 hit CAD

Showing the arrow in sub-window if minimum GAP is reached (value is an editable input). Showing warning sign in the main window when the base or quote currency is at outer Market Fibonacci Levels, (value is an editable input).

There are 5 signals in one indicator!

  • outer Market Fibs Hit alert, (Currency Strength extreme levels)
  • Hook alert, (Currency Strength reversal from extreme levels)
  • Cross alert, (Currency Strength cross pattern)
  • GAP arrow, (Currency Strength minimum angle/slope)
  • pink X warning sign. (Currency Strength extreme level warning)

Each one signal can be edited in its trigger value. As each trader has its own views on the Market choose which one you want to trade. You can apply many different settings so it will fit perfectly to your trading style and psychology.

--- as from today 4. October 2017 ---

  • Optimized the function and the message for the update quote charts. The update on cross pairs is now set to true. External chart data should continuously be updated. 
  • Changed default setting of the hook alert to 16 Market Fibs value angle/slope to not miss out on reversal alerts or possible take profits.

It takes usually 1 day until the update is available via your MT4. If you wish you can save the old version. Then copy the indicator file (before updating) in a safe place outside of MT4.

I will always help you if you have any questions.

Thanks, I wish you many green pips in the future.
