    This is a much-improved version of an existing indicator which is pretty accurate at capturing changes in the direction of the trend with a visual display on the chart together with trade signals. You can also set it up to receive alerts in the form of an email, instant Telegram message or audible sound. It uses a combination of 3 moving averages which filter out false signals using confirmation dots and if the symbol price is above or below the dots.

    How Can I Use This for Trading?

    This indicator can be an addition to your other favourite indicators or used on its own to identify when a trend cycle is changing and to open a new position, an audible alert of your choice as well as a message on the screen will tell you to Buy or Sell.


    How To Find Out The Change In The Trend

    When the trend changes the direction you will see the dots change colour, in the example above green is for a bullish trend and red for a bearish trend, the adjustable parameter called "Confirmation dots" will allow you to wait a number of same colour dots before showing a signal or sending an alert. An example would be to set it to 4 dots, so when 4 green dots are formed a solid direction reversal has taken place.

    Please note that the indicator will not signal a bullish trend if the price is below the dot when the candle closes and above the dot for a bearish signal.


    What Kind of Alerts Are There?

    The alerts are a pop-up message on the screen, an audible sound which you can configure yourself, an email message and a free instant telegram message.

    Confirmation Dots Explained

    The confirmation dots are created at the close of the candle because during the candle formation the price moves up and down and will cause the current candle dot to change from bullish to bearish, so when the candle closes we have a solid trend confirmation dot. A 2-dot confirmation will fire a signal at the close of the current 2nd candle and at the start of the 3rd when the 2 previous closed candles show a solid dot.

    Indicator First Use (read me)

    When you first attach the indicator to the chart if there is already the number of confirmation dots showing, on the close of the candle and the alert signal will be fired, after this all future signals will only happen after the set number of confirmation dots as the trend reverses.
