BrakeMA Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The BrakeMA Metatrader 5 forex indicator is a basic trend trading FX indicator that is displayed in the form of the NRTR (Nick Rypock Trailing Reverse) as proposed by Konstantin Kopyrkin.

The indicator is based on breakouts, where a buy alert is generated when price moves above the previous registered high for a define time period. Vice versa for a sell alert.

A price breakout is spotted using the various moving averages type that are embedded i.e. simple, exponential, smoothed and linear weighted.

The principle of the indicator is simple (just as seen within the Parabolic Sar):

The dodger blue line channel is seen below price bars during a bullish trend, while the magenta line channel is aligned above price bar during bearish trend.
