Semaphore Identical Candles Buy/Sell Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

    The Semaphore Identical Candles buy/sell MT4 indicator provides trading signals in the direction of the bullish/bearish candlestick trend selected from multiple timeframe’s.

    You can select them directly from the indicator’s input menu (from the 1-minute chart up to the monthly chart).

    A buy signal arrow is generated on the chart when all candlesticks of the selected timeframe’s are bullish (up).

    On the contrary, a sell signal arrow is generated on the chart when all candlesticks of the selected timeframe’s are bearish.

    This indicator can be useful to generate short-term trading signals.

    It’s a good idea to use it together with a longer term moving average such as the 100 period exponential moving average.
