Super Trend Dot Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The Super Trend Dot Metatrader 5 forex indicator is an enhanced version of the renowned Supertrend custom indicator developed by Olivier Seban.

As a trend detector, the MT5 indicator replaces lines with dots that allows the display of previously hidden one-bar change of direction.

There are two key input parameters that are available on the Super Trend Dot forex indicator:

  • Period – defines the calculation period
  • Multiplier – defines the value for the ATR weight multiplier

The dots are colored red or green by default, as well being aligned above and below the candlesticks respectively.
