After 5 years of learning and studying indicators (approx 50 indicators), I feel I wasted my time, but I did found interesting discoveries which improved my learning curve and developing a trading system.
Firstly, there is not much of a difference between indicators. Whether it is an indicator or an oscillator. Whether it is measuring volume, momentum, averaging, etc… it still produce quite similar results. And, every indicator has its own flaw.
Examples of Forex Indicators and Trading Systems

Step Moving averages (Step MA) smooth the price data to form a trend following indicator. They do not predict price direction, but rather define the current direction with a lag. Step Moving averages lag because they are based on past prices. Despite this lag, step moving averages help smooth price action and filter out the noise.

The Forex market consistently attracts traders of all skill levels and strategies. This is probably one of the most advanced basic strategies out there. It is also highly adaptable, can be traded on any timeframe, any currency pair, long-term, medium-term, even scalping (although scalping is it’s least suitable use).
Secondly, with new indicators getting developed (from simple to the very complex), I need an indicator that would be available to me at all times. What would happen to my trading if I don’t have any access to any indicators? I need to learn to trade without indicators. I need to understand the raw information by itself.
Every indicator has its own flaw. The more indicator you use the more flaws you add to your system.
There is no magic indicator, no matter how fancy they look. The major flaw of indicators is not because it is lagging. The major flaw of indicators is that it can not calculate the randomness aspect of the market. Indicators can calculate the predictable aspect of the market, but not the randomness. That is the reason why it will never be perfect.
After years of comparing, learning and studying indicators; the results produced quite similar results. The only differences between indicators are very small margin of deviation… which lies between a given margin of tolerance. A moving average would produce the same result as your super duper magic indicator, give or take a small difference. (this does not mean to suggest that you don’t use them)
