The Timing Colored Signals MT4 forex indicator is a buy/sell signal line trading oscillator.
The indicators fluctuates between 0 and 100.
The 100 value represents an overbought market while the 0 value represents an oversold market.
The Timing indicator draws a colored signal line: green color means the trend is bullish, orange color means the trend is bearish and finally a yellow colored signal line suggests the trend is flat.
Trading the timing signal oscillator for Metatrader 4 is quite simple: go long when the indicator draws a green line and go short when the indicator draws an orange line.
Do nothing when the indicator draws a yellow signal line or stay with your current position.
However, I would use it together with a trend following indicator and take signals from the Timing indicator in the direction of the prevailing trend as indicated by the trend following indicator.
This will increase the number of successful trades.
