Developed by Donald Lambert, the CCI indicator is a popular technical indicator used in all financial markets, including in Forex.
CCI fluctuates between the -100 and +100 extreme values.
It’s recommended to use the CCI in agreement with a trend following trading indicator for better trend trading.
- A CCI movement above +100 value would trigger a buy trade.
- A CCI movement below -100 would trigger a sell trade.
- Use together with trend indicators to confirm the buy or sell trade.
