The Trend Identifier indicator for MT4 looks similar to the traditional ADMI technical indicator but it isn’t really the same.
This indicator consists of a blue colored trading channel with a red signal line crossing above and below the channel.
A bullish trend occurs when the red signal line crosses above the trading channel from below. In this case, currency traders look for buy trade opportunities.
Conversely, a bearish trend occurs when the red signal line crosses below the trading channel from above. In this case, currency traders look for sell trade opportunities.
The Trend Identifier Mt4 indicator can be used as a standalone forex indicator and works for any trade style including scalping and day trading.
