This indicator is very powerful because it reveals the true movements of the market. It is highly recommended to analyze charts knowing the performance of individual currencies or the countries economies.

-> You can enter the market anytime using "CSM Multi-timeframe" dashboard.
This dashboard was designed to tell you which currencies you should be trading at that moment.
It calculates across all timeframes and will tell if the currency is appreciating/depreciating.
- if GBP is strong (+0.235%) and USD is weak (-0.133%). (Choose any currency which is strong against weak currency).
Since GBP is strong, check "CSM Multi-timeframe" dashboard if GBP is further appreciating/getting stronger on multiple timeframes.
And also check if USD is further depreciating/getting weaker.
In that case, its a good time to enter the market, as long as they are diverging from each other.
The indicator will tell you which ones are appreciating or depreciating.
Remember - If you're buying "EURUSD" currency pair, That means you're:
- Buying EUR currency (Base currency)
- Simultaneously selling USD currency. (Quote currency)
Understand the relationship between Base currency and Quote currency.
- Removed the small breakout alert bug!
- The indicator now displays numbers below currency labels indicating whether a currency is overbought or oversold.
(Above +80 = Over bought | Below -20 = Over sold)
When the value increases, it will be a positive number (e.g +66.25), and when the value is decreasing, it will be a negative number (e.g -33.21)
Tip: When a currency is overbought, it is more likely to start depreciating or lose strength.
When a currency is oversold, it is more likely to start appreciating or gain strength.
This is very important because it will also help to time your trades...
-> For a strong currency, trade when the value is increasing/positive.
-> For a weak currency, trade when the value is decreasing/negative.

1. The indicator needs data (M1,M5,M15,M30,H1,H4,D1,W1,MN) for all 28 FOREX pairs + Gold + Silver.
- All timeframes MUST have data. Remember, when you open a new empty chart, after few seconds, it shows candlesticks. That means MT4 has downloaded data for that chart & timeframe. You need to cycle through all timeframes for all pairs. And then when you're done, RESTART MT4 (Close it to save info and open it again).
2. Check Symbol names for GOLD/XAUUSD and SILVER/XAGUSD in settings.
- Change those symbol names to the one your broker supports. Also, check Prefix and Suffix.
Without data, there's nothing to calculate. MT4 is an older version. MT5 is more advanced.
If all instructions are followed and all data is downloaded and saved. The indicator WILL WORK.
My other clients are using it without any problem...
- The indicator will explain and tell you what to do when the window is empty or doesn't display anything... :)
