TCCI Indicator

The TCCI indicator for MetaTrader is a Moving Average-like tool for filtering random market noise and identifying trend bias. It includes a dual-colored feature for framing an asset’s trend bias. Unlike a traditional Moving Average, the TCCI indicator is dynamic and alternates between green and red in response to the market’s current bias. It turns GREEN to indicate a possible bullish move and RED to indicate a possible bearish move. Furthermore, the indicator can be used by a variety of forex traders, including novice, intermediate, and advanced traders. It can also be used for scalping, day/intraday trading, and swing trading.

What is the TCCI Indicator?

The TCCI Indicator analyzes the market in real-time and generates simple buy and sell signals in the form of a dual-colored signal line. The color of the TCCI signal line alternates between green and red. A green signal line indicates a bullish market, traders could be on the lookout for buy trade opportunities in such cases. A bearish market is represented by a red signal line, traders could be on the lookout for sell trade opportunities in such cases. TCCI can be used in conjunction with other technical tools or price analysis.

TCCI Strategy

It is important to remember that the TCCI indicator is designed for a trending market when employing the TCCI Strategy. First, the trader could endeavour to identify the market bias, whether it is an uptrend or a downtrend. Now, they could wait for the indicator’s line to turn green or red, indicating that the bullish or bearish trend will continue, as the case may be. After a bullish or bearish candle closes above or below the indicator’s line, respectively, the trader could open his trades accordingly after confirming the signals.

Buy Signal

The following could be your checklist for a buy trade:

  • When the market is in an uptrend.
  • When the color of the TCCI Indicator changes from red to green.

Once these two events occur:

  • You could open a buy position after the color switch happens and you get your signal confirmation.
  • You could set your stop loss just below the nearest swing low.
  • You could set your take profit at the nearest resistance zone or you could exit trade when the color of the TCCI Indicator changes from green to red.
  • For good risk management, I would only consider trades with a risk to reward ratio of at least 1:2.

Conclusion

The TCCI indicator is a technical tool that may help you filter out market noise caused by price fluctuations. It could also be useful for trend-following and counter-trend traders in determining market bias. The indicator employs the characteristic of changing color depending on the prevailing trend of the market so that the traders can pick trades accordingly, however false signals can be generated sometimes so traders should endeavour not to depend solely on the indicator’s signals for their trade decisions.
