What are the best forex trading indicators and how do you use them to make your forex trading strategy succeed? Here we will look at how to do just that.

Firstly, there is no such thing as a best forex trading indicator on its own, as no indicator works all of the time however if you combine the right Forex trading indicators you can build a robust forex trading strategy and seek currency trading success.

Here we are going to give you a subjective view, of the best forex indicators and how to combine them for success.

When trading forex markets, we always like to use simple bar charts and see support and resistance as the initial paint on the canvas. We can see support and resistance and the direction of the market clearly and then decide with our indicators areas of value to buy and sell.

Here are some indicators we have been applying for 25 years and have made money with and the some advantages we think they give to any trader.

Simple Moving Averages

We all know prices come back to an average and we find the most useful the 40 day MA, for defining the biog long term trends and in strong trending markets, we like to buy or sell back to the 20 day MA, to enter fresh positions in the direction of the trend.

Bollinger Bands

Gives you the volatility of the market and they are a great help in determining the standard deviation of the market from the norm. This of course gives you clues to overbought and oversold scenarios, entry points and targets.

Anyone who trades forex, needs to be aware of volatility and standard deviation, so make it part of your essential forex education and use Bollinger Bands.

While you can see trends support and resistance and volatility, this is just setting up areas to trade now you need to do market timing. You should never predict a move, you should always confirm it with momentum indicators to get better market timing.

Here are two great forex trading indicators to do this.

Relative Strength Index

A great indicator you can use it to time entries if the RSI is in your favour and strong, in existing trends – or when it diverges from trends ( particularly when its over bought or over sold) to enter contrary trades.


We love the RSI – But our ultimate indicator to trigger trades is the stochastic; it’s simple and very effective. We always use crossovers to confirm any move we are looking at. In contrary trades we love stochastic crosses with bullish or bearish divergence ( from over bought or oversold areas) against the prevailing trend.

A Great Toolbox Of Indicators for Any Forex Trader

So there you have our best forex trading indicators and they can be used for trend followers, contrary trading or swing trading. We can’t give you every advantage of them here but look them all up and study them and you can blend them, into a powerful forex trading strategy for profit.
