Bears Power Forex Technical Analysis and Bears Power Forex Trading Signals

Developed by Alexander Elder

Bears Power is used to estimate power of the Bears (Sellers). Bears Power estimates the balance of power between the bulls and bears.

This indicator aims at identifying if a bearish trend will continue or if the price has reached a point where it might reverse.


A Currency Price bar has 4 parameters: the Opening, Closing, High and Low of the price bar.

Each Price bar either closes higher or lower than the previous price bar.

The highest price will indicate the maximum power of the Bulls within a price period.

The lowest price will indicate the maximum power of the Bears within a price period.

This technical indicator uses the Low of the price and a Moving Average (Exponential)

The moving Average represents the middle ground between sellers and buyers for a certain price period.


Bears Power = Low Price - Exponential Moving Average

Signals are traded according to the lower time frame but only in the direction of the long term trend in the higher chart time frame.
