Polarized Fractal Efficiency

www.cmsfx.comThe Polarized Fractal Efficiency indicator (PFE) was developed by Hans Hannula. It was introduced in the January 1994 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine.


The PFE is used to gauge how trendy or congested price action is. PFE readings above zero mean that the trend is up; the higher the value the more efficient (trendy) the upward movement. PFE readings below zero mean that the trend is down; the lower the value the more efficient (trendy) the downward movement. Readings around zero indicate choppy, less efficient movement.
