The Overbought IO trading indicator for MetaTrader 5 can potentially help you ride trends longer, signal over-extended trends and show you when it’s time to cut your trend-following trade and reverse into a counter-trend trade. In our opinion, it can serve as a complete, stand-alone trading methodology using statistical price analysis to identify entries and exits.

The approach is based on the principle that strong trends show extended periods of overbought price action, and the Overbought IO Indicator set enables traders to participate in such events while most other traders are left with standard indicators telling them to exit as soon as the trend accelerates. At the same time, Overbought IO provides signals that may allow you to reverse your trade once it has detected reversal tendencies. The statistical price analysis adapts to changing market conditions and has been developed to identify market reversal structures. Because of the automatically adjusting algorithms, Overbought IO can be used on all different markets and across all time frames.

OverBought IO: A Complete Trading Framework

Statistical Overbought/Oversold Channels with Clear-cut Signals


The four Overbought channels allow you to see how much price potential is left, how strong the ongoing trend is, while also signaling potential trend reversals. The Overbought channels automatically adjust based on the current market environment and allow you to trade during trend AND range periods. Overbought IO also uses specific color-coded signals that make it very easy to differentiate between different ranks of overbought and oversold conditions. We take out the guesswork by providing a statistical based price analysis framework.

Momentum Shift Analysis


The Momentum shift indicator (MSI) is a rapid reacting indicator that shifts when the first signs of a shift in buyer and seller balance are detected. Together with the Overbought price channels and conventional price analysis, you have a combination of trading technology and algorithmic based analysis.

Multi Time Frame Analysis


The Trend heads-up display automatically performs a multi-time frame analysis and projects trend and momentum information directly on your execution time frame. You can see the trend direction, how much trend potential is left and if the higher time frame is trending, ranging or fading. It’s so easy to lose focus during trading and forgetting to check what is happening around you. With Overbought IO, you can stay on your lower time frames and get all the necessary information projected on your charts.

Entries, Exits, Stop and Profit Taking


The Overbought IO approach not only helps you find entries, but it also helps with stop-loss, profit placement, and potential profit taking. Most struggling traders spend the majority of their time trying to find a new and better trading system and completely neglects the importance of risk management and profit taking. Overbought IO could potentially help you eliminate the guesswork and offers easy to implement stop loss and profit taking strategies as well.

RISK DISCLAIMER: The placement of contingent orders by you or broker, or trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.

Is Overbought for Day Traders and/or for Swing/Long Term Traders?

The Overbought IO can be used on your preferred time frame and it automatically adjusts its parameters based on your chosen time frame. This indicator’s underlying algorithms takes into consideration the variables presented in your specific time frame. We considered the fact that different traders utilize different styles, time frames and risk management which is why Overbought is a multi-time frame trading system, offering a robust trading framework for different trading styles.

Can it be used on all instruments?

Yes. Overbought IO is an auto-adjustable trading system that automatically adjusts based on the volatility and the momentum of the market you are trading.

In contrast to conventional indicators, which are just using standard formulas to analyze price action, Overbought IO analyzes the individual market first and then adjusts the parameters. Its auto-adjusting algorithm recognizes the unique characteristics of each market and provides effective price analysis regardless of the market you trade. Having said all of the above, we highly recommend to trade liquid instruments with tight bid and asks.

Will Overbought IO work with conventional technical analysis?

Yes it will. We recommend you keep it as simple as possible though. Overbought IO implements a set of leading algorithmic calculations and by combining it with conventional chart analysis such as support and resistance and basic chart formations, you can easily build your own trading system.

How does Overbought derive its value?

The Overbought IO derives its inputs from calculations of volatility, range and price deviation. Whereas most conventional trading indicators and systems are static by nature, meaning they only work well in trend OR range markets, Overbought IO automatically adjusts based on the market environment and therefore allows you to trade in both trend and range market conditions.

Of course, there is no certainty in trading, and there is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading.

Can the Overbought IO be automated?

No. Overbought is a discretionary trading system. While we tried our best to create objective tools, no doubt that personal experience, risk tolerance and your risk capital will play a role in your success.

We believe that independent thinking leads to independence. While we appreciate the Expert Advisor (EA) approach, we wanted to provide a tool that may allow you to trade at your own pace and risk tolerance.

Can prices extend beyond the Overbought IO indicator?

Yes they can. They can move substantially above and below those levels at times. This can work for you and against you at the same time. This is why we advise you trade responsibility with strict risk management and not hold too many contracts

Can I also use Overbought IO as entry signal?

Yes. While Overbought can be used to help you ride trends longer, it can also help you identify reversal trades and get into new trends much earlier than most trend-following approaches can.

Trading indicators on their own do not generate gains. Your experience, discipline and market conditions may prevent you from having any financial benefits. The Overbought IO method’s goal is to assist traders in developing an approach that can potentially build a foundation for trading that is not based on hunches, gut feel or intuition. We do not claim that the overbought IO components are the only tools necessary for successful trading. Your experience, skills and your developed method can potentially help you.

All statements in this publication is our opinion. These are our own interpretation of the markets and could be the opposite of other experts who build their own method. Our opinion is not a universal truth, rather interpretation of the markets the way we view it.

Risk Disclaimer: The development of Overbought IO method is based on what we considered some of the essential elements in trading, but we cannot possibly encompass all the variables necessary, especially when each trader finds different variables for trading based on his/her risk tolerance.

Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.

USE ONLY RISK CAPITAL. You should never put yourself or your family in a position of risk and trade capital you cannot afford to lose.

The placement of contingent orders by you or broker, or trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.

The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains. Please consider if trading in leveraged products fits your own risk profile.
