The Trend Score Metatrader 5 forex indicator was first introduced in the article “Rating Trend Strength” in the S&C magazine, September 1993 edition by Tushar S. Chande.
The indicator is known to define both power and direction of a trend.
The indicator has distinct overbought and oversold regions that are placed above and below the 5 and -5 levels respectively.
The Trend Score MT5 indicator has a variable (Period method) under the inputs parameter.
It allows currency traders to select between “Use Period” and “Do not use period”, where the former offers smoother results, while the later produces a lot of noise (and will require further filtering).
