The prime number oscillator indicator indicates the nearest prime number, be it at the top or the bottom of the series, and outlines the difference between that prime number and the respective series. Like its band version, the oscillator was also developed by Modulus Financial Engineering Inc. Determining market trends has become a science even though a high number of people still believe it’s a gambling game. In order to understand and predict market movements, technicians and mathematicians along with brokers and investors developed several indicators.

The traders call prime an integer positive number that has no positive integer divisors other than 1 and itself, so it is a positive integer (greater than 1) that has exactly one divisor other than 1. As an example, 17 can be divided by 1 and 17 – it’s prime whereas 18 can be divided by 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 18 – it’s not prime. These numbers that appear in a specific order are said to create a sequence. As a sequence contains elements (terms), but unlike a set, the terms of a sequence follow a specific rule, are situated in a certain order. Mathematically, the Fibonacci numbers create the following integer sequence is : (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21….). Traders use this sequence to determine future market movements. By using various methods the Fibonacci sequence is applied and Fibonacci Box consists of these methods. The box contains the Fibonacci extensions, retracements, circles, fan and time methods. By using the numbers in this mentioned sequence traders manage to time specific turns in the market movements.
