XO Signals Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The XO Signals Metatrader 4 forex indicator is a technical indicator that does not average data array.

Hence the decision to Buy/Sell is executed in one swoop.

The XO Indicator is an offshoot of the point-and-figure indicators which implies that price is not plotted against time as seen on time-based charts.

Instead what it does is to plot price against changes in direction.

This version of the XO indicator outlines lime and red vertical bars within its indicator window as a gauge for bullish and bearish market sentiments in that order.
