The cTrader Mega-Trend indicator is a combined indicator that helps a discretionary trader to isolate 4 potential market conditions:
- Strong Downtrends
- Weak Downtrend ( potential reversal )
- Strong Uptrend
- Weak Uptrend ( potential reversal )
The indicator combines Moving Average Crosses with the SuperTrend to highlight strong trends and weak trends ( potential reversals ) while internally the Moving averages are used to identify a long-term trend ( subject to the common moving average lag ) while the SuperTrend ( and its volatility-based mechanics ) allow to segment strong and weak cycles of the trend identified by the moving averages.
