Adaptive Renko Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The Adaptive Renko Metatrader 5 forex indicator is a technical tool that spots trends and gauges trailing stops.

The indicator consists of two distinctly colored dotted lines and two uniquely colored solid lines as well.

The dotted lines are known to act as upper and lower boundaries of the channel, while the solid lines are support/resistance lines.

One thing to note about the Adaptive Renko indicator is that it relies on the starting point for its calculations.

This implies that if the maximum number of price bars within a terminal window is altered, the location of the indicator on the activity chart will also alter.
