Sentiment Zone Oscillator (SZO) Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The SZO is short for Sentiment Zone Oscillator, and is a Metatrader 5 forex indicator that reveals the market sentiment (activity alongside direction) and regions of extreme activity (overbought/oversold regions).

A dynamic channel is formed when using the SZO forex indicator, beyond this channel deals are labelled as undesirable as a result of the high likelihood of a change in sentiment and of reversal.

If the line of the indicator moves beyond the channel, and at one fell swoop goes into the overbought/oversold region, this could imply that the market trend is about to change quickly.

The SZO Metatrader 5 forex indicator frequently cautions traders of potential change beforehand, which makes the indicator an asset when used in combination with other confirmation indicator.

This indicator works for scalping, day trading, swing trading and position trading.
