Indicators

Automatic Trendlines

Developer: FXCM

Trendlines show how price has generally changed over time (i.e. has price generally risen, fallen, or moved sideways). Additionally, trendlines are often used to define support and resistance price levels. Both uses are extremely valuable to many traders. Price direction is important in determining whether to be a buyer or a seller and support and resistance levels can suggest whether price will continue or change direction at those levels.

Creating trendlines is a breeze with the Automatic Trendlines indicator. Simply define the frequency and number of trendlines to be drawn and the indicator will automatically populate the trendlines on a chart. Creating trendlines has never been this easy.
