Bollinger Bands Buy/Sell Signals Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Bollinger Bands Forex signals indicator for MT4 provides buy and sell trading signals based on Bollinger Bands and ATR (Average True Range).

  • A buy signal occurs when a green arrow appears on the chart
  • A sell signal occurs when a yellow arrow appears on the chart

The ATR is used as a filter and can be turned ON and OFF.

I prefer to put the ATR filter ON with value set at 25.

I found it to be more accurate with the filter turned ON.

Furthermore, play with its settings and different parameters.

It’s recommended to use the indicator together with other analysis tools or technical indicator for more pips.

The indicator works for any pair and timeframe.
