The cTrader Waddah Attar Explosion Indicator is built based on the price and can easily be used by the trader to identify when the price of a symbol has started moving as a trend continuation move or breakout move after a range or as a reversal move after the price has been moving in one direction for a while. The indicator is used to determine the actual targetted entry price, but other indicators are used as a filter to determine the overall trend direction.
Trend Filter Indicators
There are a few indicators that are optional and can filter the trend so that positions only open using the WAE indicator when these indicators show a bullish or bearish signal.
Multiple Configuration Settings
The parameter settings of the trading system allow multiple configurations for the entry and exit signals, so it is possible to use 1 or many indicators depending on the strategy.
Trade Management Indicators
The trade management indicators are used to limit the risk, lock in the profits and pause trading during high impact news events.
