TSI MT4 Stock Indexes Indicator and TSI Indices Trading Signals
Indices Trend Strength Indicator
Developed by William Blau
TSI is a momentum indicator. The TSI is drawn by using a momentum calculation that reacts faster and is more responsive to stock indexes price changes, making it a leading indicator that follows stock indexes price action direction closely in the stock indexes trading market.
The TSI is drawn as a blue line, the indicator also plots a signal line which is drawn as a red line, and these two lines are used to generate crossover signals.
TSI also plots a histogram which shows the difference between the TSI Line and the Signal line. This histogram crosses above or below the center lines, histogram levels above the center line shows a bullish crossover signal, while center line levels below the center line shows a bearish crossover signal.
MT4 Indices Technical Indicator and Generating Indices Trading Signals
The TSI uses various methods to generate stock indexes trading signals. This MT4 Indices Indicator can be used in the same way as the RSI to determine general indices trend direction of the stock indexes trading markets. Overbought and oversold levels can also be shown using TSI. The most common methods of generating trading signals are:
Zero line Crossover (Histogram crossover not Lines crossover)
- Buy - when the histogram crosses above 0 a buy is generated
- Sell - when the histogram crosses below 0 a sell is generated
Signal line Crossover
- A buy is generated when the TSI line crosses above the Signal line
- A sell is generated when the TSI line crosses below the Signal line
This signal is the same as the one above and the timing corresponds to the time when the histogram crossovers happen.
Divergence Indices Trading
Divergence is used to look for potential indices trend reversal point of indices. The reversal divergence setups are:
Indices Trading Classic Bullish Divergence: Lower lows in stock indexes price and higher lows on the indicator
Indices Trading Classic Bearish Divergence: Higher highs in stock indexes price and lower highs on the indicator
Divergence trading can also be used in identifying potential indices trend continuation points in stock indexes price action direction. The continuation divergence trading setups are:
Indices Trading Hidden Bullish Divergence: higher lows in stock indexes price and lower lows on the indicator
Indices Trading Hidden Bearish Divergence: lower highs in stock indexes price and higher highs on the indicator
This can be used to identify overbought and oversold conditions in stock indexes price action movements.
- Overbought condition - levels being greater than the +25 level
- Oversold condition - levels being less than the -25 level
Trades can be generated when the TSI crosses these levels.
Buy signal - when the levels cross above -25 level a buy is generated.
Sell signal - when the levels cross below +25 level a sell is generated.
Oversold - Buy Indices Trading Signal
Overbought - Sell Indices Trading Signal
The overbought/oversold levels are indicated using horizontal lines drawn at the +25 and -25 levels.
