Round Number Indicator Guide

August 6, 2023

Trading involves numerous strategies and indicators that guide traders' decisions. Among these, the concept of 'round numbers' holds a significant place. Our Indicator helps you identify these levels - which is a huge time saver. In this article we explain you how to set it up properly.

Setting up Round Number Indicator

Once you have loaded the indicator on the chart, you will see the following things:

Every horizontal line on your chart signifies a round number. The thin yellow lines represent less significant round numbers, while the thicker orange lines denote stronger levels. However, the strongest levels are marked by the bold blue lines. The strength of the level directly correlates with the roundness of the number. For instance, the blue line hovering around 142.000 signifies a major level of significance. In contrast, the orange line positioned at 141.800 indicates a level of lesser importance.

Show 250 pip level

This setting allows the display of round number levels that are a multiple of 250 pips from the current price. A 'pip' is the smallest price move that a given exchange rate can make. For instance, if the current exchange rate of a currency pair is 1.2000, the 250 pip levels above and below this would be 1.2250 and 1.1750 respectively. Traders often use these levels as potential points for placing stop loss or take profit orders.

Show 100 pip level

Similar to the 250 pip level, the 100 pip level setting shows round numbers that are 100 pips away from the current price. So, if the current price of a currency pair is 1.2000, the 100 pip levels would be 1.2100 and 1.1900. These levels can be key areas of support and resistance, making them important to track.

Show intra day pip level

This setting displays pip levels that are relevant within the trading day. It might include round number levels that are 50, 25, 10, or even 5 pips away from the current price, depending on the trader's preference and trading style. These levels can be particularly useful for short-term, intraday traders who aim to profit from small price movements.


Each pip level comes with alerts, which are easy to set up. You can read the documentation here.
