M. H. Pee created the Trend Trigger Factor as one of the variants during the early days as introduced in the Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities magazine in December, 2004.
The indicator was wrongly coded for the Metatrader 4 platform
Considering the yields weren’t that bad, the Trend Scalper Metatrader 5 was designed to yield better results than its earlier Metatrader 4 version.
In the Metatrader 5 version, the Trend Scalp forex indicator has a single line that oscillates around the zero level.
The Trend Scalper Metatrader 5 Forex indicator indicates extreme levels where the upper line area is filled dodger blue, while the lower line area is filled sandy brown.
Seemingly, the dodger blue zone denotes an overbought condition, while the sandy brown zone is indicative of an oversold condition.
This indicator works great for scalping and day trading any currency pair.
