forex strength meter

These sheet meters let you see at a glance which currencies are running high or low. The action menu tells you which currency pairs are at extremes with the number of red arrows representing which pairs are down and green for going up.

The daily pip travel is a good guide to let me know when certain pairs are most likely exhausted by measuring how many pips a certain currency has moved since the broker began the new day.

You must have an MT4 platform running with the DDE enabled (See below)

If you are getting lack of movement on certain currencies  or errors it is your MT4 broker not supplying you with enough pairs to make the measurements , or they use a different coding arrangement that does not work with the spreadsheet.  Use the MT4 that is linked above. You can use and alias to register. Just use it for now as your data source. You can run several copies of the MT4 program on your computer at one time as long as you lonly have DDE enabled on the copy you are feeding the Chart with.  The platform must be running before you try to launch the spreadsheet. Once the Excel program is started, you will have to click the "allow data" box in order for it to begin accumulating.
