PipTick Effort Index MT4

PipTick Effort Index indicator is based on the work of Karthik Marar, volume spread analysis trader. It compares the change in price (Result) to the size of volume (Effort) for a certain period of time. By comparing the effort and result we can get more information about the future price movement. Both values are normalized and converted to scale of 0-100% based on a selectable look back period.

The law of effort and result

The law of effort vs. result states that the change in price of a trading vehicle is the result of an effort expressed by the level of volume and that harmony between effort and result promotes further price movement, while lack of harmony promotes a change in direction.
