      Zig zag indicator is one of the best indicators that we can use it in determining the tops and the bottoms and to use it we have to open metatrader 4 then we can press on ( Insert - indicators - custom - zig zag ) as the following photo :



      After the pressing on zig zag indicator as the above photo we will see it on the chart as the following :



      In the above photo we can see all the tops and the bottoms that zig zag indicator can define it easily to us and from it we can use it in making sell or buy trades and also we can use it in making resistance lines and support lines also we can determine the enter points and the exit points to all our orders .

      The main purpose of zigzag indicator is to find out the trend reversal point. Many traders also use zigzag indicator to draw major support and resistance level. You can get best results from zigzag indicator with the combination of Fibonacci and Elliott Wave. This is one of the best tool for swing trader. The default parameters of zigzag indicator is best. Higher parameter make noise in the chart.

      I use this indicator with moving average. If zizag and moving average both make a strong support or resistance levels that means this is strong reversal point.

      How to Use the Zig Zag Indicator?
      Zigzag indicator is the most popular indicator. When i was a newbie in Forex trading i traded in Forex on the basis of the zigzag indicator. I thought it was really good and beneficial. But after someday i realized that it's actually nothing. I don't have any faith on indicators. I saw many trader who only trades in Forex market on the basis of indicators. This should be avoided. Indicators are the combination of different arrows that shows which way the market is moving. It will never indicate which way market will move. Remember one things that indicators are following the market, market is never follow the indicators. A high impact news could destroy your every kinds of indicator based analysis. Trader should be careful about it.

      Now, Zigzag indicator works good with lower time frame. It's good for scalping strategy. If you are a scalper then you can use it. Please open the attached file to find out how to insert zigzag indicator in your trading platform. Top and bottom points of the zigzag are the key points. If you could use it regularly then you can easily catch the top and bottom point of the charts. You should analyze the chart with M15 or M30 time frame. For long term strategy i don't suggest you to use this indicator.

      Slope is one of the strongest indicators in the world of Forex, which provides you with strong entry and exit signals based on fractional patterns.

      A high-pattern break is a candle whose height is higher than the height of the adjacent candlesticks, while a low-pattern break is a candle that is lower than the adjacent candlesticks.

      The idea of ​​a fractional candle, for example, is the higher candle surrounded by low candlesticks. The price trend is likely to be in a decline. Conversely, if the fractional candle is lower than the neighboring candlesticks, the price stability is likely to start and rise.

      How does zig zag work?

      The shift points in the market direction can be determined by the zig zag index, initially by identifying all the fractional heights from oldest to newest.

      The index then ignores the previous values ​​of the turning points after new values ​​appear. For example, if a value is higher than the previously read value, it will be taken as a major turning point, thus ensuring that there is no repetition of the shift points that may result from the sideways price movements.

      The indicator ignores all high values ​​that follow the shift point (high-pattern break) and is not higher than that. On the other hand, it will ignore all low and post-shift (low-pattern break) values ​​that fail to fall below the previous turning point In this case we ensure strong trends only away from the weak trends which have not been able to cross previous highs and lows.

      look for the lowest area if price is dominated by seller so we can execute buy, then look for the highest area if price is dominated by buyer so we can execute sell. to use the zig zag indicator to be used for our daily trading that is
      1. First step, make 2 zigzag indicator with setting "depth" to 12 and 24. If the data collection want more complete plus depth 120 to convince strategy and wider perspective whether price is dominated seller or buyer.
      2. The second step, always check the time frame from start Monthly, Weekly, Daily, H4, and H1, so that we will slowly more and more information convincing will the power of seller or buyer.
      3. The third step, be patient to pay attention to the price before the execution.
      4. The last step, for friends who just entered the world of forex, to speed up the habituation of a quiet analysis, to always practice a demo account first or practice with a cent account in order to maintain your mental condition or psychology to be focused with the analysis.

      How to Use the Zig Zag Indicator?
      personally i love the zigzag indicators, they are more fun and easy to use than most indicators, but in all honesty, we cant rely on them, all it it did is give us broader insight of what the trend looks like, and the probable thing that could happen next
      The Zig Zag is a technical indicator that measures the swing highs and swing lows of a market. This will help you identify with better accuracy the market swing high and low points.
      these are the Zigzag parameters input that we need to know:

      Depth it refers to how far back in the chart bar series it will look. In order to get the highs and lows defined you need to make sure you have enough Depth.
      Deviation what percentage in price change does it take to change the trend line from positive to negative.

      Zigzag indicator is one of he very popular indicators. It indicates tops and bottoms that have been proved or can be considered to resistance and support respectively. As it known, the resistance offers the opportunity to sell while support opportunity to buy a pair. In this case, a trader is expected to sell when the top is confirmed while to buy when the bottom is confirmed. The zigzag indicator can be placed on the chart through the section Custom indicator and put the right parameter. It is believed that the default setting is good enough but it is good to test different parameters to know how they work with different time frames. At the same time it is advisable to confirm any signal generated with another indicator especially an oscillator

      The zigzag segment starts upward when the upward (rising) patterns rise, fall and appeaed on the current bar. The same is true for zigzag sectors. The zigzag line (ZigZagLineBuffer) is drawn starting from the beginning part of up to the beginning of the other part.
      The number under the bar indicates a pattern indicator (P0..P4) for "low bars on a distance not clyde me". The number above the bar (P5..P9) indicates the high rails indicator on the no-clyde and the zig-zag, the A-la-clyde patterns - the index of the metatrider 5 is the metatrader 5 (MT5) indicator and the essence of the forex index is the data conversion date accumulated.

      Zigzag is a technical indicator, which is used to analyze the price oscillations on the chart in order to detect significant changes in the trend. At the same time, Zigzag is not intended to determine the price in the future. It is a combination of lines between important peaks on the graph. By the Zigzag index, traders have repeatedly identified Elliott waves.
      However, there are some simple strategies based on the Zigzag index, including the following strategy
      Work steps :
      1- we put zigzag on the platform, open the 15-minute frame and determine the last peak and bottom of the index. This is at the beginning of the European markets
      2- we draw a horizontal line on the last peak and last bottom of the index
      3- We go to 1h chart and wait for an hour to close above the top line or under the bottom line, and enter with the opening of the new candle
      4- open buy trade if the price is trade above the top line
      5 - Enter the sale if the price is closed below the bottom line
      6- The targets will be from 20 to 50 pips depending on the pair you are trading
      7- SL for buy trade is the closing of 1h candle under the bottom line
      8- SL for sale is candle close above the top line
