You should keep in mind that there is no such as thing as the best indicator in trading.

Why? If they earn profit for you, then all of them are best. I see RSI+stochastic combination with Hotforex and earn my stable 400 dollars monthly. Enough for a trader rookie I guess.
Although this thread is informative, I must agree that there is one indicator for which I could say is the best among all other indicators. It depends on trading method but also time frame taken into account. This is why for each trading method various indicators should be tested

I do not use many indicators while trading as they lead me towards a wrong side. I made a strategy on teh base of three indicators including moving averages, fibonacci retracement, and support and resistance. My chart window looks quite simple when I analyze the market.
