The Envelopes Reversal Signal forex Mt4 indicator draws buy and sell arrow reversal signals on the trading chart.
Signals are based on the Envelopes technical indicator.
A green red arrow represents a buy signal while a red arrow a sell signal.
Play a little bit around with the Envelopes period setting to suit your needs.
I prefer to set the period to at least 25 or higher.
This tends to give less false buy and sell signals.
It’s recommended to use the reversal indicator alongside a trend following indicator.
Only consider to trade the signal arrows in the direction of the overall trend and avoid trading against the trend.
