Best Indicators for trading Gold and Silver

Hi

Would be great if folks here shared what are the indicators they prefer when trading either Gold or Silver.

Do you tweak your indicators in any way for better results ?

I am new to commodities but am starting out with using MACD, ADX, SSTO

I was also recommended to try out KST and Awesome Oscillator. Will have a look later.

Any trade secrets to share folks ?

This maybe helpful..follow from post 2442 on to the bottom of the page. I use a WMA-89 MA for a buy sell line. Use 2 each-the CFG and the Derivative Osc. Look at all the material presented and see how to use it. Give thanks to Fat tails for coding it.

No Indicators. Just draw Fibs on the swings on the 15 min chart. Enter on a 50% retrace shooting for a target of -23%

SI, GC, 6E & ES are all ran off Fibs.

Learn from mistakes, and never do them again!

I can read that a couple of different ways. Could you post a chart for clarity?

My favs from BMT
Market profile and volume ladder for trade location and orderflow.
Range bars/Uni renko bars for charts.
A couple of nice oscillators here on BMT like ergodic candelstick oscillator and d9 particle oscillator.

Don't use indicators too much they will not serve you well consistently, instead learn first how to draw support and resistance and trends. Great free guides on here and videos on YouTube.

Good luck.
