The Directional Trading Signals Metatrader 5 Forex indicator is a technical tool that is based on the readings of five popular technical indicators i.e. ADX, DMI, CCI, MACD and Stochastic.
The use of the DMI, CCI, MACD and Stochastic indicators is to generate directional trading signals.
The value of the ADX indicator is deployed as a trend filter (not minding if a trend is present or not) and at the same time affects the remaining four indicators (DMI, CCI, MACD and Stochastic).
The indicator uses three color schemes to define market conditions:
- The blue signal represents bullish market conditions
- The red signal is indicative of a bearish market sentiments
- The dark gray signal shows a neutral market condition
