[UPDATE] Metatrader 4 Tip 3 – How to use the Forex Fractal Indicator

In the last tip, we saw How to Use the Forex Indicator Stochastic-Oscillator on MT4.  Today we will focus on how to use the Forex Fractal Indicator, part of MT4 Indicators.

The Technical Analysis Forex Indicator, FRACTAL, allows us to identify changing points in the Forex market direction. 

The rules to identify Fractals are:

  • Bearish Fractal: It happens when there is a figure with a Candlestick in between that has the maximum top and two maximum lows to each side.
  • Bullish Fractal: It happens when there is a figure with a Candlestick in between that has a minimum low and two minimum tops to each side.
