TDI Dash Specific Settings:

How to Trade:

Best way to use this indicator is with Support and Resistance, Fibo or other such supporting Indicators. Or any other indicator which might validate that trend is still strong and not near an SR Zone.

Use volatility for further checking the signal. Don’t trade when volatility diamond is black and trade carefully when Overbought or Oversold.

You can also use RSI and V-Bands patterns to trade. Like when an RSI “M” forms slightly outside the V-Bands, trade Sell if high volatility. Or if a “W” forms trade Buy.

Other good patterns are the RSI Head and Shoulders patterns. These patterns combined with Price Action are very accurate.

Important Note:

– Please don’t use too many Timeframes and too many Pairs because Scanner will need to scan each and every one and might get slower the more pairs you select.

– Best is to trade trending markets for higher timeframes. For lower timeframes, scalping sideways markets also works well with TDI.

– If you want price to be above the dashboard, then right click on chart -> Go to Properties (F8) -> Common Tab -> Check “Chart on Foreground”.

But if dashboard is behind the price chart, then you might have difficulty pressing the buttons. So, best to keep dash in the front and open buttons in new charts.

    I love the TDI dashboard. Please can you add the features to get alert when 3 time frame gives aligns for a buy or sell signal

      Thanks. I’m glad you like it 🙂

      The feature is already there. Just set Alert on Trend Align to true
      And set Number of Higher TFs Check to 3. So if scanner Timeframe is M15, it will check M15,M30,H1 for trend alignment.
      If you keep Trend Check Only for Strong Signals, it will give very few signals. Because it’s rare for all timeframes to have a Strong trend at the same time.
      So, best just to leave it false if you want more signals.
