How to Use the Indicator
Before launching the indicator, it is recommended to download the instrument's history or to scroll the chart 10 000 - 20 000 candles back (this is done quickly on the minimum scale). The indicator calculates the probability of price movement, as well as the theoretical and practical expected values of the trading results with consideration of the specified spread. Signals are generated only if the probability of upwards or downwards price movement is greater than the one specified in the settings and if the expected value of the trading result in that direction is greater than 0. The expected value of the trading result is displayed in points and depends on spread specified in the settings. Increasing the spread in the settings increases the accuracy of signals and decreases their amount. On the contrary, decreasing the spread decreases the accuracy of signals while increasing their number. It is recommended to specify a spread greater than the average spread on the instrument.
