Forex Cross MAs Trend Entry MT4 Indicator:

About the Forex Cross MAs Trend Entry MT4 Indicator

This cross MA and trend line indicator defines entries based on fast and slow MA and on the previous bot or top. The entry is displayed together with indicative prices for target and stoploss. It also gives a indicative pending sl and tp in case you set a reverse stop order.

The prices are based on tops and bots from my strategy which I use in my other indicator Р

The entry shows you if a correction is strong and will become reverse trend or if the correction is weak and the trend will continue. Based on that, I prefer to open straight order on the trend direction and to set pending order (on the stoploss price) in the opposite direction. This way you will profit no matter in which direction the price will go. Set the pending lots at least to cover your loss from the straight position.

! Before using the indicator please optimize it in the strategy tester for your symbols. For some symbols slow MA 400 may work, for another slow MA 300 will work, etc.
