Vertical Horizontal Filter Indicator For MT5

Vertical Horizontal Filter Indicator For MT5

The Vertical Horizontal Filter Indicator For MT5 is a very powerful tool that helps you to analyze the trading range of the price movement. Those who are used to the concept of ATR or average true range can take great advantage from this indicator. When the price of a certain asset is trading higher, the signal curve colored in blue will start trading higher. On the contrary, it will head north when the market is in the downtrend. Based on the movement of the signal curve you can get a clear idea about the direction of the trend. Pay special attention to the rate of change in the blue color signal curve. The strong spike in the north suggests the buyers are becoming more aggressive and the volatility is really high. On the contrary, the sudden drop in the blue color signal curve suggests the sellers are gaining strength. However, if the signal curve starts to trade in a slow pattern consider the market volatility as low.
