Change To Range Ratio - indicator for MetaTrader 5

2013.07.29 20:54
2016.11.22 07:32

The idea is that the sharper trend movement is, the greater is the momentum, and the closer is the value of the momentum to the sum of the ranges of bars. So the indicator is the ratio of the momentum to the sum of ranges:

Change To Range Ratio = (close[bar] - close[bar-period]) / Sum(high - low)

This indicator is very similar to Range Ratio, but it uses a difference between the closing prices, which provides the following benefits:

  • more accurate signals;
  • turns the indicator into an oscillator with oversold and overbought areas.

The indicator is designed for short-term trading on high timeframes (H4 and higher), and works well with 3-5 bar period. Values ​​greater than 0.5 indicate an overbought market, and therefore you should close long positions and shouldn't open new ones. Values ​​less than -0.5 warn against opening short positions, or, if there are open new ones, you should close them.



  • I do not advise to use the indicator with a period of more than 5, as it is designed for short-term systems, so the greater the value of the period - the less reliable is the signal.
  • Example of use as a filter: if you receive a buy signal on the timeframe H1, but on the daily chart in an uptrend the value of the indicator is greater than 0.5 - it is recommended to ignore the signal. In other words, intending to enter the market, check the value of ChangeToRangeRatio on a higher timeframe.
