The Truth About Trading Indicators

How to Stop the Indicator Madness

Are you trying to figure which indicators are the best ones and the setting to use? 

Everyone that starts investing and trading the markets using technical analysis will be exposed to the “indicator-based methodology.” 

It is handed down continuously to the next new technician willing to accept it as being the way to understand price action and its turning points.
