That must be the case for some of them but I don’t think it is with everyone. It really depends on the rader and some of them choose to use indicators in the beginning while others wait before getting started with them. It also depends on the strategy you’re using and if it allows you to stick to those indicators in the long run. Like I have been using moving averages from the beginning and I still go for it whenever I’m trading. So can’t really say if that is how everyone works, right? What made you think that in the first place?
When I started off as a trader, the only indicators I knew about were RSI and MACD. With time, I got to know about more indicators and even tried using some of them. But I got back to these two; maybe because I had obtained a hold of these and can use them to the best of my advantage.

I would say a lot of indicators don't 'indicate' much, and are more like a breadcrumb trail of the past. On my charts I trade across all 3 sessions, so session times are the most important information to me. Recent screen shot and my set-up to do this. I also like to have DXY open to monitor real-time USD activity.
