Trend Price Action Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

    The Color Trend CF Metatrader 5 custom forex indicator is a technical indicator that gauges price action.

    The indicator itself is made as a filling around the zero level (appearing above and below).

    It is the color of the filling of the Trend CF MT5 indicator that defines the trend direction and the width of the filling around the zero level defines the trend power.

    The Trend Price Action CF indicator deploys just one variable within its inputs parameter i.e. the “Period”, a variable that defines the calculation period and has a set default value of 16.

    Traders can tweak this value to reach settings that suits their trading strategy.
