Example of displaying this indicator on the EuroDollar hourly chart

This indicator draws three lines on the chart. The function of each line is as follows:

  • Top line (red line): Highest value during a certain period (set in the parameter “Period”)
  • Middle line (green line): Average of top line and bottom line
  • Bottom line (blue line): Lowest price over a certain period

Tips for use:

1. Use this indicator in a breakout strategy

For example, if you break out of the red line at the closing price, look to place a buy order. The logic of this breakout strategy is that the idea of "beyond the highest price in a certain period at the close price = buying momentum is strong". Of course, if the price breaks below the blue line at the closing price, you can also aim for a sell order.

2. Utilize the middle line

Use the middle line for trading. For example, it can be considered that the trend is bullish (or bearish) if the price is higher (or lower) than the middle line = uptrend (or downtrend). It is also good to observe the slope of the middle line and interpret it as an uptrend (or downtrend) if the slope is upward (or downward).

In addition, this center line can be used for placing stop losses. For example, if you place a buy order after exceeding the red line, you may want to put a stop loss behind this middle line.
