The Trend is Your Friend. Follow it and you’ll be fine.

Surely you’re familiar with this expression – ‘The trend is your friend’. The actual source of who said that is unknown but the statement remains to be the Holy Grail of the most successful traders. The biggest profits in Forex can be made by following the bigger trends. TrendViper, a non-repainting trend indicator is specifically designed to help you recognize and follow trends based on Moving Average Crossovers and the Average Directional Index. We added a few additional features that will be helpful to any trader using MT4 charts.

Includes Smart Display with Dynamic Price, Candle Countdown, Candle and Trend Direction on Upper Time Frames, and ADX power bar.

TrendViper has been designed from the ground up with novice traders in mind but the trend indicator also tailors to experienced traders. The Smart Display window positioned on the right of your trading chart shows dynamic price information and it lets you have a glimpse of upper time frames without the need for tracking the price action in multiple windows. Here is a complete break down of the display functions.

The MT4 Trend Indicator will help you to see trends formed by moving averages. It provides an uncluttered overview. Using ten indicators at once is often confusing and counter-productive.

The main job of the TrendViper is to smooth out the price action and eliminate market noise to form a clearer picture of the direction of the underlying asset.

Following trends is where the big money is in Forex but trading them is a real challenge for most traders.

This is where the MT4 trend indicator will come in handy. With its additional display and filters, customization options, and free trading signals, TrendViper is the only indicator you need to follow the general trends.

The TrendViper indicator will not only show you trends on your traded chart but it will also give you immediate insights into current trends and candle direction on upper time frames. Thus making following the major trends even easier.

FREE trading signals – No monthly fees!

MT4 trend indicator alert popupTrendViper will generate trading signals based on predefined settings. The buy and sell signals can notify you of each new trading opportunity.

In addition to big arrows drawn on the charts the signals can be delivered as a small pop up window with a sound alert (as seen in image), email message, or a push notification send to your mobile device such as phone or tablet.

Once the trend indicator is installed and running you will be able to receive free trading alerts continuously without any monthly fees.

The pop up alerts will notify you of each TrendViper signal – conditions defined by the TrendViper indicator. You will no longer need to stay glued to your monitor screen but can enjoy your day and do other tasks as well.

IMPORTANT! Use 1H, 4H, 1D charts for greater accuracy of the signals and to capture bigger market moves. The truth is that for most Forex traders more trades don’t always translate into bigger winnings. One to two good trades a week is all you really need to succeed.

Once you receive a signal we recommend taking a look at your charts and confirming it with price action patterns. Note that the Buy/Sell signals are for reference and educational use only and do not constitute financial advice.

Signals can be sent directly to your email and/or mobile.

In addition to arrows on the chart and pop ups in MetaTrader our custom MT4 trend indicator will also send email alerts and push notifications to your mobile. The email alerts, as well as other notifications can be switched on or off in the indicator settings.

Below is an example of an email alert sent to a mailbox.

The Forex trading signals can also be delivered to your mobile via a push notification. In order for this to work you will need to install MT4 app on your mobile. Push notifications are sent almost instantaneously.

In order to receive the Buy/Sell trading signals to your email address or your phone, your MetaTrader 4 needs to be configured with your server details, email account, phone number, and it needs to be running.

Please note that these trading signals do not constitute financial advise. They are only programmed alerts of specific market conditions and a set of calculations within the indicator. Trading on a live account is risky to your capital.

Fast and lightweight script. It will easily run on multiple charts.

trend indicator running on multiple chartsUnfortunately many custom MT4 indicators work slowly or even crash the MetaTrader software. Moreover, when you try to remove them from your trading platform they leave a logo or other objects on your screen requiring you to add the indicator again or reinstall your entire MT4 platform, which can be a very frustrating process.

Fortunately, TrendViper is easy to install and run on your MT4 but it is also just as easily removed, if required. Although our trend indicator is quite a robust piece of software it is still a very lightweight script that was programmed from the ground up to be extremely fast and responsive. Not only will it run on multiple charts but it can also run with different settings on each chart.

The end result is that you can easily run TrendViper on multiple charts without slowing down the performance of your MetaTrader.

Completely transparent system to help the trader.

There are many custom Forex indicators out there that hide certain information from users. For example, some indicators will generate buy and sell arrows on MA lines crossovers but they will hide the lines and only show the arrows. This is done mostly to make users believe there is a lot of complex calculation going on in the background, where in some cases this is simply not true.

We show the MA lines by default but there is an option in the MT4 Trend Indicator settings that allows to hide these lines, so that only the UP/DOWN arrows are visible on the chart. However, we feel a trader should always be well informed and seeing the layout of the MA lines helps in determining the structure of a trend.

Technical explanation of how the trend indicator is built.

Moving averages are my gurus. – Larry Tentarelli, a known trend trader who found success with Merrill Lynch, wealth management division of the Bank of America

How trendviper works

For those who like to get technical here is a quick summary of the workings behind our Forex trend indicator. TrendViper is based on Moving Averages, Average Directional Index (ADX) and Price Action. All calculations in this unique trend indicator represent factual data.

In the default settings the green line represents a fast moving average of 5 EMA (Exponential Moving Average). The red line represents a slow moving average of 50 SMA (Simple Moving Average).

When the fast moving average is above the slow moving average we recognize an Uptrend, which is marked in green color. When it is below the slow moving average we treat it as a Downtrend, which is marked in red.

The arrows and the trading signals are automatically generated when the two moving averages cross and when the specified ADX (Average Directional Index ) threshold is met.

Moving average crossover signals are good indicators of changing trends but they perform best when markets are tranding, not when markets are consolidating and contracting.

To maximize the winning potential of the moving average crossover strategy in adapting markets we added a few additional filters.

1. ADX Power filter

The main and most powerful filter in the system is based on the Average Directional Index, ADX, which is used to quantify the strength and intensity of a trend. Generally it is accepted that when the ADX level is above the value of 25 there is a considerable price movement and there is a presence of a trend.

Trend power barOn the Trend Power bar visible in the display all red bars represent values below 25. The first green bar is a value above 25.  The actual values of the ADX power bar represented in bars is as follows: 0-10 /11-15 / 16-19 / 20-23 / 24-25 / shown in red and 26-30 / 31-35 / 36-50 / 51-70 / 71-100 shown in green .

Naturally, the more green bars there are the stronger the trend and stronger signal. The filter threshold for the arrows and the signals is set at 25 (this can be modified in settings, some traders like to use 20 or 22 ADX). No signals will be generated if the ADX is below the set threshold. Signals should be confirmed with upper time frame trend direction and other information visible in the additional display.

2. Higher Time Frame filter

The setting Confirm on Next Upper Time frame can be used to filter the signals by looking at the trend on the next upper time frame. By default, this option is turned off but you can quickly change it in the indicator settings by choosing option ‘True’. In some instances confirmation of the trend on higher time frame will save you from potentially trading against a predominant trend. When this option is turned on if you’re trading on 1H chart and you get an UP signal, then the trend on the 4H chart will also have to be bullish.

3. Candle Close

By default, the setting Wait for Candle Close is set to False, meaning the signals will be generated as soon as the MA lines cross and the ADX threshold is met. This option is better for early signals. If Candle close is set to True, the arrows and signals would appear only when the lines have crossed and the candle has closed. Choosing this option will generate a slightly belated signals but some traders prefer each crossover to be confirmed with a candle close.

Fully customizable. It can work with any trading system.

TrendViper is a very powerful trading tool that can be used successfully by novice, as well as a professional traders.  Essential technical and visual features can be modified or switched off, making our mt4 trend indicator a very versatile tool that can be used entirely on its own or with any other trading system. Here is a breakdown of all the available settings and options with a brief explanation for each.

MT4 trend indicator settings

Easy to install and run. Works great with default settings.

If all those settings above frighten you please don’t worry. The TrendViper MT4 Trend Indicator works well with its default settings of 5/50. However, in order to configure and tweak your trading system and signals you can experiment with modifying the most important settings in TrendViper, which are:

    • Fast MA Period (default is set to 5 EMA)
    • Slow MA Period (default is set to 50 SMA)
    • ADX threshold (default is set to 25)

The default settings on TrendViper are optimized for short term trading. Settings can be modified to reflect your trading strategy. Long term traders might use 50 SMA / 200 SMA (Simple Moving Average) or 21 EMA / 100 SMS or 200 SMA. There are many possibilities.

Here is a quick look at fully automated results.

TrendViper can be used in many ways. The indicator was backtested on Meta Trader 4 within an expert advisor to see how it performs.  The  most precise measuring method was used with historical price data. We found that it performed quite well on EURUSD on H1 charts and a slight change of the ADX filter resulted in different returns.

These are fully automated results used with historical price data. Past results do not guarantee future results. 

The TrendViper indicator should be used with human input in the trading process and analysis of price action patterns. However, the above results are good examples that show how this indicator can perform.

Easy to follow strategy. No need to over-complicate your charts.

The beauty of the TrendViper indicator is that it is simple to use but very versatile. Many novice traders over-complicate their trading charts, sometimes viewing more than 5 indicators at once. In these type of a set ups some indicators will send conflicting signals and the user may feel exhausted after each trading session which will result in bad trading experience. When it comes to financial markets a simple strategy is often considered to be much more effective. Here is a brief look at a MA crossover trading strategy to be used with the MT4 trend indicator. 

MA crossover signal

1. Observe the two MA lines and the histogram color change. When the green line crosses the red it may be a potential trade. You will also receive a signal alert (arrow, popup, and email or push notification)

2. Confirm the signal with the Trend Power bar. It should have at least one bar in green to confirm the presence of a stronger trend.

3. Confirm the signal with the trend on upper time frame. If the trend on the upper time frame is the same there is a greater probability that the trend will continue on your chart.

4. Finally, you can confirm the signal with the candle on upper time frame as well. If the candle shows the same direction of the trend, it might be a good time to enter.

One of the best setups, reaching a high success rate is when there is a MA crossover signal and all the other indicators in the TrendViper display visible on the chart support it and show the same direction as the signal.

So if the signal is up, indicating a bullish trend, all supporting indicators in the display are in green.

If the signal is down, indicating a bearish trend, all supporting indicators in the display are in red.  (With the exception of the Trend Power bar which sould show at least one green bar, indicating the presence of a stronger trend, see picture).

When a signal is confirmed by the supporting display the probability of the market reversing suddenly is slim.
