EFC Indicator: MT4 Indicator Reversal Trading Tool

How does the EFC Indicator work:

  • The EFC is designed to do three things to maximize trading entries.
  • The EFC finds strong trends so traders can always trade in the direction of the trend.
  • The EFC Indicator finds strong pullbacks and reversals in the direction of the trend.
  • The EFC finds when the pullback is complete and creates a signal when to enter the trade.

Here is a simple Diagram demonstrating how the EFC indicator works so that you can get a general understanding of this tool.

When a BUY trade is triggered the remaining candles will turn green until the set stop loss or take profit

is reached. When a SELL trade is triggered the remaining candles will turn red until the set stop loss or

take profit is reached. You will also see a green arrow point up (for a buy) or a red arrow pointing down

(for sell).

1. Resuming everything written above we can outline the basic principles of getting Buy/Sell signals:

RSI must be in oversold (for buy signal) or overbought (for sell signal) zone (orange bars)

2. RSI must then exit that zone and go restoring along with a price (blue bars). Since this moment

we can put a stop order to enter a trade. Entry price is the start price of the pattern (first

orange bar)

3. As soon as a price triggers the entry level, the indicator emulates trade entry

4. If RSI turns back and goes again to over-zone, the signal cancel.

Basic principles of entry signals

The EFC pattern starts when the RSI hits a critical level and the candles turn orange (default color).

Then when RSI gets back from the critical zone along with price, blue candles appear (default color).

To decide if a price is really tending to rise (for Buy pattern) we compare the current close price with a price of the bar with the lowest RSI value (it must be higher).

For the Sell pattern, accordingly, to be sure the price goes down we compare the current price with the price of the bar with the highest RSI value.
