Coppock Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The Coppock Metatrader 5 indicator is a custom technical study that is designed to signal when a bullish trend will kick off in the market.

Edwin Sedgwick Coppock in 1962 published the formula for calculating the Coppock MT5 indicator in the Barron’s Magazine.

The formula used in calculating the Coppock does not include those for bearish market direction, but it is sometimes used by traders.

To ramp up its ability in supporting signals for bullish market direction, we advise that the Coppock MT5 indicator gets blended with other useful MT5 indicators in a bid to design a reliable trading strategy.

The indicator’s signals are generated when its default dark olive green line crosses above the zero line.
