The Min Max Signals Metatrader 5 forex indicator is based on a very modest idea that involves the calculation of the minimum and maximum of some price over a specified time period and such values are then deployed in the continued estimation of the currency trend.
The indicator has a dual colored middle line that is bordered by an upper and lower dotted lines.
The outer dotted lines alternates its colors (medium sea green & orange red) in line with those of the median line.
When the median dual colored line of the Min Max indicator turns medium sea green, so does the outer dotted lines, while the later also turns orange red when the median line reverts its color to orange red.
The coloring of the outer bands are also convenient for short term trend estimation (good for scalping and day trading).
