extreme point is an index which helps to ascertain the points of possible cost change on the chart.
The index makes it easier to find points for accurate entry into transactions. The indicator shows certain impulses, and there’s a high probability that the price will continue its movement in the exact same direction.
The indicator may be used along using other indicators to more accurately ascertain the entry points to a position. The indicator is also used individually.
For example: the indicator may be used with the usual Moving Average with a period of 200 to determine the trend. According to this system, buy signals are considered when the price is above MA 200 (uptrend), and sell signals are ignored. Similarly, sell signals are considered when the price is below MA 200 (downtrend), and buy signals are ignored.
This indicator can work on any timeframe and any currency pair, but I recommend using a timeframe from M5 to W1 (from five-minute to weekly).
You can also use different timeframes at the same time to get a stronger signal or confirm the signal on other timeframes. The ideal situation is when you get a signal in the same direction on several timeframes, this signal is the strongest. And the potential profit from the transaction on such a signal increases.
