Theoretical Basis of Building Cluster Indicators for FOREX

Cluster indicators are sets of indicators that divide currency pairs into separate currencies. Indicators allow to trace the relative currency fluctuation, determine the potential of formating new currency trends, receive trade signals and follow medium-term and long-term positons.

If it's in the experts tab it's also in the experts log file.

Experts tab is rubbish and i was fortunate enough to stumble across this EXCELLENT post by 7bit; it's made debugging so much more powerful :)

Addendum: Writing to Experts tab also creates log files, which over time can slow down the terminal. To optimise speed, go to Tools->Options->Charts and change both Max bars to 500, so the terminal isn't constantly pulling thousands of candles from the server and delete old log files.
