What is the Belkhayate Timing Indicator?
The Belkhayate Timing Indicator is a technical analysis tool that calculates the center of gravity of market movements.
It helps to identify;
- Best areas for buying or selling (moments to enter or exit the market)
- Possible reversal points of the market.
It appears as a set of candlesticks oscillating among three zones – Upper Red zone, Middle Colourless zone, and Lower Green zone!
This indicator appears at the bottom part of the IQ Option interface below the price chart.
It was introduced by Mustapha Belkhayate, hence its name.
The Principle behind the Belkhayate Timing Indicator.
The Belkhayate Timing indicator externally repeats the candlestick chart, but on a separate area below the main price chart.
The instrument scale is divided into three main zones;
- Upper Red Zone
- Middle Colourless Zone
- Lower Green Zone
The Upper Red and Lower Green zones are collectively referred to as extreme zones.
When prices are in extreme zones, there is a chance for reversal.
The Middle Colourless zone is a neutral zone because price movement within it is moderate and not worth trading.
Understanding how this tool works.
We mentioned that the Belkhayate Timing Indicator measures the center of gravity of the market.
The Upper Red Zone is an area of extreme upward deviation from the accepted center of gravity.
The middle Colourless zone represents the accepted center of gravity of the market. Here, the price moves moderately.
The Lower Green Zone is an area of extreme downward deviation from the accepted center of gravity.
If the price has moved into the Red and Green zones or beyond, then so many trading opportunities are available.
Those are possible trend reversal points which IQ Option traders can tap into and make huge profits.
However, if the price remains oscillating in the middle colorless zone, your trading opportunities are so thin!
Actually, if you place a trade, you have a 50% chance of winning and guess where the other 50% goes? To losing.
You would rather fold your arms and stay back when the price is in this zone.

Using this tool to Trade on IQ Option.
We mentioned that the Belkhatyate Timing Indicator repeats candlesticks on an area below the main price chart.
These candlesticks oscillate within three-zone. An upper red zone, a middle colorless zone, and a lower green zone.
That is how the Belkhayate Timing Indicator appears on IQ Option charts.
Having established that, we need to know how we can use that tool to trade profitably on the IQ Option Platform.
Remember we said that the Belkhayate Timing Indicator actually helps us to identify points of Buying or Selling.
How then do we identify these points using the Belkhayate Timing indicator?
This tool will give you different kinds of signals to enter the market.
The kind of signal you get from the instrument will depend on the position of the tool’s candlesticks in the three zones.
When it comes to trading, there are other additional zones beyond the upper red and lower green zones.
These are called transparent areas. They are upper and lower transparent areas!!
Therefore, as we discuss the various signals, we shall consider Five zones namely;
- Upper Red zone (Extreme).
- Middle zone (Neutral).
- Lower Green zone (Extreme).
- Upper transparent area.
- Lower transparent area.
Upper Red zone (Extreme).
When the indicator candlesticks enter this zone, what you expect is that the uptrend is about to reverse. This can act as a point of Resistance. Therefore, you can only prepare to enter a Sell position.
Middle zone (Neutral).
When the indicator candlesticks are in this zone, relax and stay away from trading! This is a neutral zone. Price movements here are moderate and do not generate tradable signals. Trade at your own risk!!
Lower Green zone (Extreme).
When the indicator candlesticks enter this zone, what you expect is that the downtrend is about to reverse. This can act as a point of Support. Therefore, you can only prepare to enter a Buy Position.
- Upper transparent area.
If the indicator candlesticks enter this zone which is beyond the Upper Red extreme zone, this offers a stronger signal that for sure, the uptrend is going to reverse. Prepare to Sell with much more Certainty.
Lower transparent area.
If the indicator candlesticks enter this zone which is beyond the Lower Green extreme zone, this offers a stronger signal that for sure, the downtrend is going to reverse. Prepare to Buy with much more Certainty.
Combine this tool with other chart analysis tools for more accurate signals.
Using an indicator solely on IQ Option is not safe.
