Introduction to the MBFX Timing Indicator

The MBFX Timing Indicator is a forex oscillator providing the best time to enter and exit the market. The indicator was originally developed by Mustapha BELKHAYATE. The MBFX Timing is best used to identify price extremes and then time the potential turning points. The way it works is similar to the Relative Strength Index, as values range from 0 to 100 level, with values below 30 or 20 signaling overselling and values above 70 or 80 warning of overbuying. The green color shows upward momentum in price and red shows downward momentum. It is pretty ease to use so both beginners and advanced forex traders can try that MBFX Timing indicator.

The MBFX Timing Indicator fits all kinds of timeframes and currency pairs. It is displayed in a separate window placed just below the main trading chart. The default settings can be modified directly from the input tab. Feel free to experiment with the settings and parameters to fit your personal preferences.

Trading Rules Explanation

As we mentioned earlier, the MBFX Timing Indicator is an oscillator. It means when the price reaches an oversold state, it’s time to enter a long trade. Conversely, when the price reaches an overbought state, it’s time to enter a short trade. In the examples below, we have used it in conjunction with the 100-period Exponential Moving Average indicator.

Buy Signal

Follow these steps for a long trade:

  • The price should float above 100 EMA
  • The oscillator should drop below 30 level
  • Then it should reverse and rise above 30 level
  • Oscillator line should be green
  • Buy trade is triggered after the above conditions are met
  • Set stop loss a few pips below the last low point of the market
  • Take profit or exit trade whenever the MBFX Timing provides opposite signal or use your own preffered method of trade exit

Bottom Line

The MBFX Timing indicator is well worth adding to your trading collection but remember about having realistic expectations. Just like any other technical analysis tool, is not capable of providing accurate signals 100% of the time. Thus, this forex indicator provides false signals occasionally. Its performance will vary significantly depending on market conditions. Feel free to develop your own trading system based around it.
