The Bands LSMA trading indicator looks similar to the Bollinger Bands indicator but the LSMA uses different parameters and settings.
However, you can apply the same rules to trade with it.
Similarly, the LSMA Forex MT4 indicator consists of a middle band and two outer bands that act as support and resistance.
It will give you a clue about market volatility and where price is heading to.
- When the LSMA bands are sloping up, it suggests price is sloping up as well.
- When the LSMA bands are sloping down, it suggests price is sloping down as well.
- Wide LSMA bands indicate that the currency market is more volatile.
- Narrow LSMA bands indicate that the currency market is less volatile.
Feel free to explore the Bands LSMA Forex indicator’s different parameters and settings to create your own personalized indicator setup.
