SRange Contraction Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The SRange Contraction Metatrader 5 indicator is designed as a signal technical tool to display daily ranges.

It is built based on the Range Contraction indicator.

The SRange Contraction MT5 indicator is shown on a separate window, where the ratio between today’s and the previous day’s ranges are being displayed.

An alert pointer gets marked along with the narrow range points (under the designated value).

If the previous day’s range was tighter than the day before, this could suggest an explosive moment today according to Toby Crabel.
