The Fractal Channel Metatrader 5 custom indicator simply displays its channel using fractals.
The fractal method of creating a trading channel is quite an interesting one.
Irrespective of its simplicity, it can be deployed for flat level analysis (for instance, if you have strayed away from your trading screen and you quickly want to scan recent market happenings).
The indicator is comprised of three dotted lines by default, there is the outer upper (lime) and lower lines (gray), along with the middle line (gray).
