Advanced Currency IMPULSE with ALERT

This indicator is a unique, high quality and affordable trading tool because we have incorporated a number of proprietary features and a secret formula. With only ONE chart it gives Alerts for all 28 currency pairs. Imagine how your trading will improve because you are able to pinpoint the exact trigger point of a new trend or scalping opportunity!

Built on new underlying algorithms it makes it even easier to identify and confirm potential trades. This is because it graphically shows whether the strength or weakness of a currency is accelerating or not and measures the speed of that acceleration - think of it like the speedometer in your car. When you accelerate things obviously happen faster which is the same in the Forex market i.e. if you pair currencies that are accelerating in the opposite directions you have identified a potentially profitable trade.

Vertical lines and arrows for currency momentum will guide your trading!

The dynamical Market Fibonacci 23 level is used as an alert trigger and will adapt to market activity. If the impulse hits the yellow trigger line you will receive the alert on MetaTrader 4 or your email or push alert. Then you know as a trader what to do. The pair and direction are already given. Just click on the alert button to switch to the pair or to open a new chart for your further analysis. The alert level can be changed by user input and 3 Sensitivity-levels can be chosen.

Get the initializing trigger of a new trend early! This acceleration and deceleration can be used by both swing traders and scalpers. To swing traders it shows when a new trend has been triggered and to scalpers, it shows which pairs are going to have movement. From our clients and our own experience, we know the two indicators work so well together that it is truly a case of 1+1= 3!

  1. Use my template.
  2. The Alert trigger value can be edited at any Market Fibonacci level in settings. It can be any number. The default is 25. The yellow line shows the level on the chart.
  3. Then we see the numbers of the highest and lowest Impulse value.
  4. Followed with the Currency which reached the trigger value (if there is any).
  5. A timer will allow one alert per currency and candle.
  6. A button will then pop up with a suggested pair. By click on it, it will change the pair on the chart. The button may change or disappear if conditions are no longer met. Still, you can have a look at the chart.
  7. Use "open chart in new window" if you do not want to interrupt the indicator.
  8. Check my news and blogs on profile for trading system and trade examples.
  9. Study the complete trading system.
  10. Send me a private message to get the latest information.

I will always help you if you have any questions.

I wish you many green pips in the future and success to your trading career.

Thank you for your hard work. Great indicator!

I started to use Bernhard´s Indicators in late 2016, but had difficulties due to lack of time to monitor the charts.

Now with the new versions is much easier to follow the market.

And combining the Advanced Currency IMPULSE with ALERT with the Advanced Currency Strength28 Indicator makes it all easier because they let you know exactly how the market is evolving in real time.

Thank you Bernhard for these excellent indicators and for the continued willingness to help.

I am a newbie in the forex and I tested a lot of indicators and I am on the side of losses trade !

I took advanced dashboard and leave side because I'm more visual

Bernhard answered my questions even if everything was already explained in the blog!

then I came back to take the other products : AC28, impulse, advanced supply, advanced volume

I again asked Bernhard who answered by mail several times, quickly and courteously knowing that everything was already explained many times! what patience !

in the end I read the post, download the photos of explanations and now I understand all the interest of these visual tools and I even reintegrated dashboard!

in fact I see I will not have lost trade with these tools after taking a little time to understand

Tomorrow Monday, April 8, 2018 I start my trade quietly having understood what was largely explained and that I read in the patient mails of Bernhard and finally in the articles of the blog and post

actually a global view of the currencies very synthetic and easy

I have not seen this elsewhere with this level of relevencec is why I recommend this product to be in positive trade and I leave this post while I do not take the time to do it generally

so a big thank you for the support by email and for all the explanations for the products

i am french, retired and as you see my english could be better !

I use this indicator with the CS28 and it is excellent. I have had such good deals with this in combination with the CS28 indicator. Best money spent on the MQL Market.


All of us want the pair to have movement and don't want to sit in front of the screen waiting for the currency to make the move. Impulse is the only indicator that I have used that helps me with that.

2018.03.12 14:08 

Many times the signal shows out almost was the end of the trend, It should be used SR indicator to filter the false sugnal.

2018.03.10 13:57 

I find this useful to help me see which pair I need to focus on for the active sessions trades.

I have been using Bernhard’s Currency Strength28 indicator since the beginning, before it was made available on MQL5. I have used many of the currency strength indicators that are available for MT4. Most provide point-in-time numbers that reflect the strength of the eight (8) individual currencies. The strategy is to pair a strong currency with a weak currency, thereby identifying a currency pair that is likely to move in a particular direction. However, like all indicators, currency strength indicators are lagging … they tell us about the past. When you look at a chart, you can see the result of price movement based on past strength and weakness. Even though currencies might be strong or weak, the move on the particular time frame you are looking at might be over.

The Advanced Currency Strength 28 indicator is different than all the others. It shows us the past in graphical form. Each currency is represented by a line and we can see where strength/weakness has been, and guess where strength/weakness is going. While there are other indicators that track currency strength over time (e.g., Fatman from Hawkeye Traders), in my opinion Advanced Currency Strength 28 is the best currency strength indicator on the market. (I have used Fatman, and despite its considerably higher price ($540), it doesn’t hold a candle to ACS28.) Bernhard has continuously updated this indicator based on feedback from his customers. At this point in time, the current version available on MQL5 is outstanding.

There are many ways to use ACS28 and its companion indicators – Advanced Currency IMPULSE, and Advanced Accumulated Currency Volume. Angle of currency strength change is very important, as is the distance from the zero line. When two currencies are a great distance from the zero line, they are likely to regress back to the mean. It’s as if the two countries need to rebalance for trade purposes and bring the two currencies back to equilibrium. Alerts are built into the indicators to tell you when currency strength and weakness are at the extremes. This is typically a retracement or reversal trading opportunity.

ACS28 can be used on any time frame. There is also the ability to show two (or more) ACS28s in separate windows of the same chart – one for the current time frame, and one for a higher time frame. When the two time frames are in agreement, the trade is more likely to be successful. I like to use the next timeframe up. With M5, I also show M15. With M15, I also show H1, and with H1, I also show H4.

ACS28 works in tandem with Advanced Currency Impulse. Impulse is like an early warning alert. The analogy is as follows – if ACS28 speed, AC IMPULSE is acceleration. IMPULSE comes with its own vertical line alerts, as well as pop-up, push and email alerts. Seeing these alerts on the chart is very helpful. For those who use Ninja Trader 7, the vertical line alerts are like Bloodhound racing stripes.

There are third party providers who make indicators that work with ACS28. I particularly like CS Angle Lines (available on MQL5) that show what Bernhard calls the Golden Angle. When currencies achieve this “golden angle”, they have momentum. There are trade opportunities when one currency has the golden angle slope (or steeper) and a second currency is flat (a single GAP). One can expect the greatest momentum when two currencies have the golden angle slope in opposite directions (a double GAP). If two currencies are moving in the same direction, it’s time to wait for a better opportunity.

I like to use Kashif Javed’s ACS28 Gap indicator along with ACS28 (http://javedfxsolutions.wixsite.com/javedfxsolutions/acs28). It provides racing stripe alerts on the chart when the difference between the angles of two currencies are greater than a user defined amount. These can work in conjunction with the racing stripes provided by Advanced Currency Impulse.

ACS28 shows up and down arrows on the indicator itself and on the price chart when the currency strength angle achieves a threshold steepness. This value is adjustable, but sticking with the defaults works fine.

Bernhard specifies angles in terms of Fibonacci levels. These angles are used by ACS28 and third party addons (like ACS28 Gap). This avoids the problem of angles changing based on zoom level. The Golden Angles are helpful because they appropriately change with zoom level, and you can compare currency strength slope to the Golden Angle lines drawn in the indicator window.

Bernhard’s volume indicator is also helpful because it shows the volume for each currency across the 28 currency pairs. When there is a volume spike, it can mean that the buyers/sellers have exhausted themselves, and that price is due for a pullback or reversal.

There are many ways to use these exceptional indicators. There are detailed instructions on how to use these indicators and a SKYPE group for current users.

I suggest that you purchase both the Advanced Currency Strength 28 and Advanced Currency IMPULSE and learn how these indicators can work best with your trading style.

I am using both Bernhard's indicators, it is the most amazing tool and reads the price action in the market accurately. It does not repaint, it shows the action on that moment! I love scalping and don't like to leave open trades overnight, this is perfect for my trading style!

Thanks Bernhard for this great indicator and great support!!!

2017.09.13 18:31 

Добрый день! Приобрел 3 месяца назад 2 индикатора к своей стратегии Advanced Accumulated Currency Volume и Advanced Currency IMPULSE with ALERT в стандартном исполнении он мне не много не подошел, пару дней потратил на изучение, поигрался с настройками под свою торговлю и в путь и вот прошло 3 месяца совершено чуть больше 500 сделок удачных сделок 68%♣, просадок значительно меньше чем было, работаю на бирже опционов. Огромное спасибо за вашу работу Bernhard c удовольствием бы его выкупил на постоянную основу! 10 из 10!! ♣Брал в аренду на 3 месяца для проверки, теперь докупил годовой абонемент!

2017.07.13 17:01 

Since starting to use Bernards system I've done away with almost all my other indicators, trading only with CS28, Impulse and the C Volume indicators. This really is a complete system and by following the rules I'm profitable and very happy with this style of trading. Using currency strengths in this way to identify the best pairs to trade seems really obvious once you start using it and I wouldn't go back to my old system.

The support is also top notch, regular updates and new features are added all the time.

it's very good

this indicator like EYE DEVIL it's can analysis all market currency pairs in realtime

2017.06.08 18:20 

The Impulse gives you the real momentum within the market. It's the actual signal-maker within Bernhard's strategy. No matter which of Bernhard's tools you use, it works as part of his strategy or in other strategies as confirmation - just because of the density of information you get. If anything goes at any currency, you'll see it immediately with this tool. And the biggest feature from my opinion - always comparing to all other currencies. The new dynamic configurable trigger is what I call a V 2.0! Bernhard gives 100%.

@Irmscher9: Just change the timeframe!

I don't think you can do without this indicator if you are using ACS28. I haven't found anything equivalent or close. This is what you do if you have Impulse. Download a demo of any indicator from MQL5 that is based on volatility, engulfing candle, or breakouts of some sort, test it in strategy tester and add Impulse to the chart to compare them. Usually from the price chart there is no sign of movement preceding Impulse. However, a double spike in Impulse is always magically followed by a price move in the predicted direction, except when C-Volume exceeds its limit. Use Impulse with C-Volume the result is unbeatable.[Edit: This product comes close, but it's only for one chart at a time https://www.screencast.com/t/j5uXsuREh4v]

2017.05.19 11:46 

I'm not very happy with this product, it's next to useless for me. To be effective you need all 3 indicators, I have only 28 currencies and impulse and I only lose money most of the times if I follow the signals given by these. If you wait for a perfect signal it would take you weeks or of waiting, as it appears only a couple of times a month at best.

2017.05.11 22:03 

Great product! Great support! Very recommended!

2017.04.25 11:02 

Just perfect if you keep to all the published rules.

Special thanks to Bernhard for the indicators

Very great product, i would recommend it to anyone. This makes forex trading extremely easy.

Thank you Bernhard

2017.04.14 16:34 

This product should be used together with Advanced Currency Strength28 to form a very profitable trading system, if the trader uses proper money management. Bernhard's support for both indicators is also very fast, friendly and comprehensive. Both indicators are highly recommended.

I have added the option on click alert button to switch to the pair in the same chart instead of new chart window.

- User setting: alerted chart open in new window (set to false to use same chart)

I also added a timer to show the alert button at least 60 seconds before it will be deleted if signal is expired, but it can switch to an other pair if it is better.
