PipTick Pairs Spread MT4

PipTick Pairs Spread indicator has been developed for the very popular strategy known as pairs trading, spread trading or statistical arbitrage. This indicator measures the distance (spread) between prices of two directly (positively) correlated instruments and shows the result as a curve with standard deviations. So, any trader can easily identify when the instruments are too far apart and use this information for trade opportunity.

How to Use?

The best results are obtained when the trade is opened somewhere between the second and the third standard deviation.

  • Indicator is between the 2nd and the 3rd standard deviations - SELL Pair 1, BUY Pair 2
  • Indicator is between the -2nd and the -3rd standard deviations - BUY Pair 1, SELL Pair 2
