Sometimes it's easy to lose track of the bigger picture. This indicator draws candle boxes based on high and low around the current price action. For example, if I'm trading M1, I like to add H1 and H20 so that I don't get lost. These levels also work as S/R zones.

This indicator dynamically on each tick draws symmetrical lines around a current price to give you a quick idea when your profit target and stop loss maybe located in relation to current price, swings, pivots and generally price action. Nothing advanced, but useful tools to visualize your action before you actually take it. You might want to use in combo with this indicator ;) http://ctdn.com/algos/indicators/show/975 Enjoy safe trading!!!

This is rather a very simple indicator. It display's the index id of a specific bar ranging from 0 up to the current (last) bar.. This can be used if you want to visualize the bar id's during visual debugging of your algo.

In indicator display position size for specified currency pair and balance's % risk (stop loss). It does not take into account spread or fees, so simply adjust % to accommodate those. I like to have this displayed o the chart, it helps me with risk management through different currency pairs. Please let me know by comment if it is useful for you or how would you improve.

This is not my whole work, I just made a mod from the source of "Real Market Time" by lec0456 In this file I added some custom parameters as menu options: Broker's name, Broker UTC/GMT Time Zone, Swap Hour, Format 24hr or AM/PM, Label Color, Open and Close hour colors. *Swap hour based on Broker server. Now you can choose custom colors and write the label of your broker. The Market Hours used are New York, London, Broker, Sydney and Tokyo If you prefer, you can also write another Time Zone instead of Broker's name and choose one of this UTC/GMT: North America Pacific(-8), Central (-6) and East (-4) Europe GMT (0), West (1) and East (2) Asia Tokyo (9), East Australia (10) and New Zeland (12) The indicator use your Local Time to show you the Market Hours. If you want to include another time zone in the code there are some comment sections to make it easier.

Okay now it's my turn to contribute to the community. This is a simple Inside Bar pattern recognition. The points appear around the Mother Bar, at the opening of the third bar after the Mother bar. There is an inside bar when a bar (child) does not violate the precedent bar (mother). This pattern is useful for trend inversions. Do not use every signal, only those at the structures (supports, resistances) are important. More informations about the Inside Bar Pattern: http://www.dailyfx.com/forex/education/trading_tips/chart_of_the_day/2012/02/22/Inside_Bars_and_How_to_trade_them.html

This is a modification of indicator Better TickVolume with paint bar functionality. Please notice that this indicator only paint the bar, and not showing the tick volume. To show the tick volume with color-coded, use indicator Better TickVolume by ZigZagAK. In this version, down and up bar color is still hard coded (line 130-138) with color light gray (up bar) and gray (down bar). Next version will enable user to choose their color preference via menu.

(v 1.01) This is the Accumulative Bid/Ask Volume (ZigZag Edition). To operate it successfully please download and install the ZigZag indicator from here: http://ctdn.com/algos/indicators/show/157 If you are using my other Bid/Ask Volume indicator you must turn off the "Write to file" option on one of them otherwise two indicators will write to the same data file leading to corruption and/or twice the volume. 02.06.2015 - Version 1.01 Corrected a flaw where once the repaint is triggered it would do so for the whole duration of that bar Note that the actual ZigZag indicator line in the example image is not part of the volume indicator's plot. It is applied to the chart only for demonstrational purposes. The ZigZag is still needed for the indicator's inner workings. It can also be applied for guidance in finding reasonable settings.

FX brokers make a lot of claims about minimum and maxim spread of an instrument. But is it really reliable? Use this indicator to display real minimum and maxim spread from moment the indicator is initialized. I used Draw Spread by gorin (http://ctdn.com/algos/indicators/show/331) as a basis. Note: after adding the indicator, initial spread values as set temporary (for calculation convenience) and those should be update almost immediately, so don't get scared with 1000 minimum spread value. Please give some feedback how useful this indicator is for you. Thank a lot...

(Version 1.1) Accumulates and displays the true bid and ask volume in monetary terms (currency units) for each bar/period and their difference in a convenient histogram plot. It features filters below and above which all volume is filtered out to calculate with only the high volume offers (the smart money in theory, as opposed to the "suckers"). Due to its nature having to collect the data first it does not provide a full backfill. However, it provides a backfill for self collected data with its new data saving feature. For this an automatically named text file in the current user's documents folder is created. The file can be manually named if necessary. It is best to leave the respective option empty in the settings. Switching to another timeframe, reloading the chart or changing the volume settings occurs now with only minimal loss of collected data depending on the save setting. No more emotional meltdowns because the chart application disconnects from the server and restarts the indicator plot with the loss of all collected historical data. To compare filter settings that are right for the broker, chosen currency pair and the time of day multiple instances of the indicator that access the same data file can be attached to the chart. In this case only one instance of the indicator should actually write to the file and collect data. Data writing must therefore be turned off in the other indicator's instances. The interpretation of the plot is up to the user. Some people use it to identify high volume turns and impending directional change. Other people use the difference plot as direct signal. Or it may not yield anything at all and may only be used for educational purposes. This seems to be highly dependent on the type and quality of volume delivered from the broker. Do not copy and paste the code into the editor and try to compile it yourself! The forum software introduces garbage symbols that lead to compiler errors. I don't post the code myself. The forum software automatically extracts the source code from the compiled file for online display. So it is safe to download as it is impossible to manipulate the source code. This indicator does not work fully with ICMarkets due to their guaranteed volume policy that causes excessive flooding of the indicator's internal volume lists. Even though it is possible to filter this volume this still corrupts and excessively inflates the data file. It will work when the save is turned off and the hi-filter is set to a relatively low setting of 20 (million). In this case there is no backfill. There is no limit to the amount of data that is collected in the file. That means that the file may one day have the size of hundreds of megabytes. If it gets too big for the user it may just be deleted so the algorithm will then start a new file. The current location of the data file is: C:\users\yourusername\documents Version 1.1 (28.5.2015) Save feature added Minor mistakes corrected Volume low-filter added Number of digits extended to two for CFDs
