    Sideways Market indicator

    Hi all,

    I am looking for some suggestions to find an indicator to help me prevent trading in sideways markets and prevent whipsaws. Any suggestions?

    Hello Jluyt,

    That's a good question, you ask 10 people that question you will probably get 10 different answers, and the one who has the answer is not telling

    I would imagine this could be one way, just trade the dots.

    Good flat trend indicator is a million dollars question! Try EMA10, if horizontal stay in bed. Other variant could be Kijun Sen from Ichimoku or the old indicator Magic Trend. Kaufman? Not enough pearls to trade.
    What about that beauty: avgSpectrum.mq4 ? Prints nicely flat trends.

    Market is moving within predictable range. It does not matter if it is up, down or sideways - the essence is that the range is predictable

    Hi Mr Tools,
    The Kaufman mq4 file is downloaded but will not 'take' on the chart.
    Can you post again or help me in getting it to work?
    Thanks
