Volatility Indicator

Discover where the market volatility is with the Volatility Indicator

As frequent traders have realized, market volatility has been down. For example, volatility for the EUR/USD has halved from October 2011 to May 2012!

For this reason we created a new indicator for MT4 that shows you which pairs are the most volatile, and then correlates that with the pip value. For example, some exotic currency pair may move hundreds and hundreds of pips in a day, but that doesn’t equate to much when the pip value is only cents. It is important to take into consideration both the movement of a pair and the value of those moves!

Use this indicator to learn which currencies are experiencing volatility.


  • Add or remove the symbols you’re interested in by typing in the symbol in all caps.
  • Default settings calculate volatilty over a 24 hour period for the hourly rates, and over a 20 day period (which is about 1 trading month) for the daily rates.
  • UseAccountCurrency - Change this setting to true if your account currency is in a currency other than USD.
