Laguerre RSI with Laguerre filter Indicator For MT4
The Laguerre RSI with Laguerre filter Indicator For MT4 is a very resourceful tool for swing traders. The indicator normally indicates the market cycles. Therefore, it is a perfect fit for the traders that trade market swings.
Understanding the Laguerre RSI with Laguerre filter Indicator For MT4
The indicator is normally drawn as two trending lines on a separate chart below the trading chart. One of the lines is dotted and dim gray in color while the other line is continuous and PaleVioletred.
The dotted dim gray line is associated with the Languaerre filter signal while the pale violet red line is associated with the Languerre RSI.
The Languerre filter normally gives a time warp delaying the low-frequency component than the high-frequency component. In short, the Languerre filter is responsible for the generation of much smoother filters with the use of fewer market information.
Looking at the Laguerre RSI with Laguerre filter Indicator For MT4 window, you realize that there is a scale on the right-hand side with two lines at 0.85 and 0.15 levels. However, it is worth noting it is at times not possible to view the two lines at the same time depending on the market.
Once the indicator moves above the 0.85 level and below the 0.15 level it flattens out.
Both 0.85 and 0.15 levels are visible in the chart
The Laguerre RSI with Laguerre filter Indicator For MT4 can, therefore, be said to oscillate between the two levels (0.85 and 0.15).
If the indicator is between 0.15 and 0.85 and heading towards 0.85, then there is a bullish trend. However, the bullish trend weakens when it goes beyond the 0.65 level. That is why in the inputs' section of the indicator properties, the 0.65 is denoted as the ‘No Trade Zone up’.
On the other hand, if the indicator is between 0.85 and 0.15 and heading towards 0.15, then there is a bearish trend. And similarly, the bearish trend weakens when the indicator gets below the 0.35 level, which is denoted as the ‘No Trade Zone down’ in the inputs' section of the indicator properties.
No trade Zone in the inputs of the properties of the indicator dialog box
The ‘No Trade Zone’ is shown using the pinkish color region. The upper side of the region is the 0.65 level while the lower side is the 0.35 level.
When the indicator goes past either of the two levels (0.85 and 0.15 levels), it flattens out showing that the market is overbought or oversold respectively and it is waiting for a reversal to take place. This means that if the indicator goes below the 0.15 level, it shows that the bearish trend is most likely nearing its end and it may reverse to a bullish trend. And similarly, when the indicator goes above the 0.85 level, it shows that the bullish trend is almost over and the market trend may change to bearish any time.
