As a trader, you have probably read about grid systems. They are popular in the Forex market. Here we won't go too much into details but a short introduction is due.
Grid systems usually involve drawing a grid of horizontal lines representing buy and sell levels.
All the levels are placed at the same pip distance from each other, and money management plays a key role in managing the risk.
Grid systems are also commonly used together with round numbers, usually multiples of 50-100 pips.
What Is Draw Grid Indicator for MT4?
Draw Grid is a simple indicator developed for MetaTrader 4 that allows you to create a grid of horizontal lines on the chart.
The grid indicator doesn't trade by itself as it is not an expert advisor. However, it can be useful to perform chart and price analysis.
Often, once you draw a grid, you can see how levels of support and resistance are very close to the levels you set.
In other cases, you can look for these levels by drawing grids of different distances.
If, for example, you draw a grid using a leg (or a step) of 50-100 pips, you see how these levels are like magnet with the price. Usually, representing support and resistance levels.
You can play with the pip distance or leg and study the results.
