Bykov Trend Signals Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Bykov Trend Signals MT4 indicator is based on the ByKov formula and draws trend following buy and sell arrows on the chart.

An Aqua up pointing arrow indicates a long trade opportunity while an magenta down pointing arrow indicates a short trade opportunity.

The default Bykov Trend SSP setting is set to 5 but can be changed to whatever value you want.

If you want to use this trend following indicator as a stand-alone, change the SSP setting to at least 50 and above.

By doing so, the signals will come slower but will be much more reliable.

Experiment with this important indicator setting.

For scalping and day trading, use the M5 and M15 trading charts during the London and New York trading sessions.

For swing trading, use the Bykov forex indicator on the H1, H4 and D1 trading charts.
