The intention of the dashboard is to provide a quick overview of the daily, weekly and monthly range of configured assets. In "single asset mode" the dashboard shows you possible reversal points directly in the chart, thus making statistics directly tradable. If a configured threshold is exceeded, the dashboard can send a screen alert, a notification (to the mobile MT4/MT5) or an email. 

There are various ways of using this information. One approach is that an asset that has completed nearly 100% of its average daily movement shows a tendency to reverse. Another approach is to observe the assets, which has a very low volatility compared to the average. Now the challenge is to trade the breakout from this low volatility.

In this post, I would like to briefly talk about the visuals and variables of the dashboard. If you have further questions, please contact me.

You find the free version of the dashboard for MT4 here (https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/33913) and the full featured version for MT4 here (https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/33805) and the full featured version for MT5 here  https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/52708.

Chartelements (in "Single Asset Mode")

Variables for Alert text templates

What means vobD and vobU?

vobD stands for Volatility OutBreak Downwards. vobU stands for Volatility OutBreak Upwards. The dashboard shows this abbreviation, if the price was going through the range borders downwards or upwards. It makes no sense to show the distance anymore then, because the price is trending.

Known problem in MT5 version

When you restart the MT5 and Dashboard, you may need to change the timeframe on which the Dashboard was installed. This will update the synchronization of the underlyings.

Thanks for reading. I wish you much success and lot of green pips.
