Technical indicators

InstaForex technical indicators

To make your Forex trading successful and profitable, we offer you a wide range of InstaForex technical indicators for currency market analysis.

A currency market indicator is a special function based on statistical values such as a trading volume and price. By analyzing this function’s behavior, you can learn whether the present market trend will alter its direction or remain unchanged. With the help of technical indicators, traders who use technical analysis tools can decide whether it is time to open or close trading positions. Therefore indicators are added to MT4 charts showing prices and trading volumes for currency pairs and other financial instruments.

The precise analysis of Forex indicators allows you to get all the necessary information, from further price movements to the most accurate market trend forecast.

These indicators are called technical because they only track statistical data and do not take into account the fundamental factors related to trading instruments such as the revenue and net income of the companies issuing their shares in the stock market.

If you trade via MetaTrader 4, you can download free МТ4 technical indicators that can help you to take the right decisions and gain profit.

You can find detailed descriptions of Forex indicators including their formulas and explanations how to use them by clicking More.

Below are the most precise technical indicators for MT4 developed by InstaForex specialists.

Doji Star

Doji Star is a candlestick pattern that appears before a trend reversal. First of all, a candlestick with a long body appears. Its color reflects the previous trend. A black body confirms a downtrend while a white body points to an uptrend.

Dark Cloud Cover

The Dark Cloud Cover is a bearish reversal pattern which is formed after an upward movement. The pattern consists of two candlesticks. The first trading day is represented by a white candle which supports an uptrend. The second trading day opens above the highest price of the white candle. Then the price falls and closes below the midpoint of the real body of the white candlestick.

Piercing Line (Kirikomi)

The Piercing Line pattern is opposite to the bearish reversal pattern Dark Cloud. The bullish reversal pattern Piercing Line appears when a downward trend prevails in the market. It is a two-candlestick pattern. The first candlestick is black and it indicates a downtrend. The second one is long and white. It opens on a new low and then closes above the midpoint of the first candlestick.

Harami Cross

The Harami chart formation consists of a large candlestick body followed by a smaller body. It is the relative size of these two candlesticks that makes the Harami a significant reversal figure. Remember that the days when a Doji candle is formed (i.e., when the opening and closing prices are equal) occur when the market is sluggish, representing days of indecision.


Harami is a reversal pattern formed by two candlesticks: a small candle and relatively large  previous candle. This pattern can be seen anywhere on a chart, in weekly, daily, hourly and even minute time frames.


It is possible to recognize the Engulfing pattern when a chart has an obvious trend. The real body of the second day totally engulfs the body of the previous day. However, it does not mean that opening or closing prices of two candlesticks cannot coincide. This only signifies that both opening and closing prices of two real bodies cannot match at the same time. A body color of the first day reflects the movement of the trend. Therefore, the black color indicates a downward trend while the white color suggests an upward trend. The second body of the Engulfing pattern is always of the opposite color.

Hammer and Hanging Man

The Hammer and Hanging Man patterns (kanazuchi/tonkachi and kubitsuri) both consist of a single candlestick. They have rather long lower shadows and small real bodies which are located at the very top of the daily trading range, or somewhere near. They are sometimes called the special cases of the Tonbo/Takuri candlesticks.
