PipTick Currency Index MT4

PipTick Currency Index is a really helpful tool that enables traders to display any index of eight major currencies. The indicator uses the unique calculation formula that reflects actual volume of forex market. Basically, it is a weighted average of currency pairs values which form the crosses of index currency. The default weights are based on the results of the BIS Triennial Central Bank Survey. Because of this advantage, the trader can see the true strength and weakness of each currency.

Note: In case the indicator is used in Strategy Tester (demo version), please keep in mind that the data of all currency pairs have to be downloaded in History Center before the simulation has started (How-to). In case the indicator is added to the chart in the usual way, no downloads are needed.
