Visual examples of repainting and non-repainting indicators Regression lines are an example of an indicator/study that 'repaints'. In the first screenshot below, candle 'B' closes above the high of the swing low candle 'A'. But looking retrospectively at that point the chart, you might think "Whew! I would not have bought into a losing trade here because (1) the 'trend' is down (regression channel is sloping downward) and (2) price was overbought (candle 'B' closes above the regression channel)": {image} But the reality is that, at the time candle...
Very interesting...
Now that we know what indicator does NOT repaint.
I wonder if there are any great EAs based on Bollinger Bands?

Thanks

Hi, could someone please explain to me a few things about what it means when an indicator is said to repaint . 1. What does it mean? 2. How does it compare to one that does not and how can you tell the difference? 3. Is a indicator that repaints usless? Thanks for any input.
I have non repaint version of it but it is not good because it signal comes after the the close of the second bar

According to my own experience Fractal indicator works in the only rangy market; not in the trendy market!

This is not Fractal indicator. Check screen shots. Once signals come out at the beginning of the candle, they will not disappear in future.

Its pretty simple....Any indicator that changes its previous decision when thing go wrong... Thats just my opinion.

Since indicators repaints 99% of the time, I trade the opposite of the indicator direction. For instance, if an arrow indicator is indicating that is the market is going up. I use an stochastic for a "SELL" entry and trade the opposite direction of the indicator.

Interesting; so, are you using this opposite strategy for a long time? May I know your indicator list please?
