Initial Balance Strategy Indicator MT4

Initial Balance Strategy Indicator MT4


The Initial Balance (IB) indicator allows you to select any two time periods and will then measure the following metrics:

  1. The high and low of that period.
  2. The range of that period.
  3. The midpoint of that period.

The indicator will draw the start and end period line on the chart as vertical lines. The high, low and mid lines are drawn as horizontal lines. A display is also shown on the chart with the values for the high, mid and low levels and the range and half range values (IB and IB Half). Variants of this indicator are customised for trading the UK or US market session.
