For your automated systems only (NOT discretionary), which indicator is the most important to your system? If you have several, which one is the most commonly important, or the most important of your best system?

Please don't answer if you're not into automated trading.

My favourite indicators are those that make the charts look real pretty. I like them in blue and cyan colours, those are the best. Green can look good too sometimes.
