A raff channel indicator is a valuable tool that greatly facilitates the work of a forex trader. It is best for forex trading using regression to show Bullish and Bearing trends.
What is Raff Channel?
The Raff Channel forex Indicator for MT4 builds based on linear regression with the midline as the first-order regression. The upper and lower lines show the maximum distance the regression line had moved away from the axis line.
Therefore, the indicator upper and lower lines can be considered chart resistance and support indicator lines. So, any chart price movement outside or at the indicator channel lines permits a setback. Therefore, channel extremes (trend lines) are the best entry points to decide to BUY or SELL. But persistent breakout of the indicator channel lines indicates the reversal of the current forex market trend.
The rise in chart prices within the Raff Channel chart indicates the trend is up. Conversely, when chart prices are decreasing, it indicates a downtrend. When chart prices dip below the Linear Regression Line during uptrends, it is considered a long setup.
In a downtrend, you’ll look for short entry setups around the upper levels of the indicator channel – and buy entry to cover at the lower end. A chart uptrend reverses when the price breaks below the channel extension. At the same time, a downtrend reverses when the chart price breaks above the channel extension in the raff channel forex indicator.
