What are Material Indicators?

Material Indicators LLC is a fintech startup that uses science-based research and validation protocols to conceive, develop, test and validate algorithmic trading indicators and tools for multiple asset classes. We are not financial advisors, we are traders like you, who wanted to find better ways to understand what moves the market and how to use that data to maximize profits and minimize losses. Our growing suite of premium trading tools includes indicators and data to help you identify opportunities and mitigate risk. Each indicator may be used as a stand alone tool or combined to create a powerful system to screen and automate trades.


  • Our algorithmic MTF Mean Reversion Indicator identifies potential buying opportunities at or near bottoms of price action on short time frames with a historically and mathematically high probability of profitability. It may be used as a screener to cherry pick setups that meet your criteria or you may assign MTF alerts to automated trading bots.
  • Our Trend Precognition Indicator is a predictive tool used to estimate price direction within a given time frame.
  • #FireCharts provide a high resolution thermal heatmap of the order book and CVD data that parses order flow into bins based on volume. This unique approach not only provides a window to the orderbook, it allows you to see when whales, sharks and minnows are making market moves.

What is mean reversion?

As it relates to price action, mean reversion is the assumption that an asset’s price will tend to move to the average price over time.

Using mean reversion in price analysis involves both identifying the trading range for a stock and computing the average price using analytical techniques taking into account numerous factors. Mean reversion has the appearance of a more scientific method of choosing buy and sell points than strictly charting, because precise numerical values are derived from historical data to identify the buy/sell values, rather than trying to interpret price movements using charts (charting, also known as technical analysis) and forecasting outcomes.

When the current market price is less than the average price, the asset is considered attractive for purchase, with the expectation that the price will rise from the bottom and revert towards the (higher) average price, hence the name bottom reversion.

Why aren’t the Indicators showing up on my chart?

Our MTF Deviation Indicators are optimized for swing trading in short time frames, hence they are most visible and most accurate on 1 minute and 3 minute charts.

What is the difference between Tier 1 and Tier 2 Buy signals?

Tier 1 signals appear when a 1 minute candle closes at or below the 0 fib line on the Fibonacci chart. Tier 2 signals appear when another candles crosses the 0 fib line below the prior Tier 1 signal. Sometimes the price will rebound immediately from a Tier 1 signal and no Tier 2 signal will appear. However, if the down trend continues a Tier 2 signal may appear. Because they are lower on the chart, Tier 2 signals are considered to be more conservative buy signals with a higher likelihood of profitability.

My chart is showing multiple Tier 1 and Tier 2 signals laddered down in price range. How do I know which signals are the best to buy?

Many times the price will rebound immediately from a Tier 1 or Tier 2 Buy signal, however if the downtrend extends or the Fibonacci Chart shifts downward, consecutive Tier 1 or Tier 2 signals may appear. Some traders in our community have reported that they have been successful buying additional positions to dollar cost average (DCA) their buy price to reduce the amount of upward price action required to close a profitable trade./p>
