Greetings fellow warriors,

Hope I have posted in the correct section. I have a question regarding price action and volatility.

ATR (average true range) will tell you the average amount of pips candles have moved in the the x amount of days. Take this tool, it gives you atr, candle closing time, where you should put stop loss and take profit depending on atr and/or how much percent of your account you want to risk per trade.

ATR and Bollinger bands are the most popular indicators among traders. I would say if you want to know how big the rate changes were during the last 'N' periods, ATR and Bollinger bands are the best indicators, you must try these.

Hello, how did you change the color of your MetaTrader border to black?
Can you guide me to change the color of MetaTrader from the original color to black?
Thank you
