Is It Advisable to Load Your Chart With Several Indicators for Entry and Exit Confirmation?

As for me, I like my chart to be simple and clean, devoid of many indicators. Most indicators are lagging and having them on my chart complicates matter for me. What’s your view?

I think this is a personal choice but some indicators are beneficial and I know from my reading that a lot of indicators are called lag indicators that is they are constantly telling you what has happened. I know there are some traders that like to have blank charts ie only have candles on their chart and this is how they trade. From reading Vahid’s articles he only has candles and Bollinger Bands on his charts.
I have his articles re the Bollinger Bands and I will be studying these and understanding the rules behind them and then hopefully I can ask Vahid questions if I have any.
Good luck

Too many indicators on charts confuse me. I end up seeing things that are not there on the charts. But I suppose some people can analyze a fully populated chart better, a matter of preference I presume.

Technically no, if you know what you are doing you can simply follow price action. Learn the patterns and trends, mark key turning points in the market and then trade.
Indicators are only useful if you follow a strategy that utilises them in the right way

I think this a problem of choice and how someone can analyses the the market movement. Some people like to use lot of indicators and some people focus only on what candlesticks are telling them. It only depend on your capacity to analyze the market. As Vahid says if you Master very well candlestick language and understand what they are telling you you will not use lot of indicators because candlesticks are Te real time indicators.

If it suits your personality and helps you take a clear and accurate trading decision, then no one can advise you against using those indicators. The point is, you should know yourself. You should be able to make an accurate trading decisions. If it required a lot of indicators on your screen, then use them. If you prefer a clean screen then use it too. You are the only advisor you will ever need in the trading environtment.

Many indicators is not advisable on the chart. One is good enough to understand the direction of the market in addition to your past experience and knowledge

If you Master candlestick language and patterns, it not even necessary to load charts with indicators. Candlesticks are the real time indicators and tell you enough about the market sentiment.
