About the Smart Trend indicator

The Smart Trend indicator is based on a colored trend line and a band. The colored line shows you the current market trend, the above band shows the overbought level and the lower band the oversold level.

You want to look for a buy trade if the smart trend indicator is in an uptrend (blue) and the price is in the oversold level (lower band). You want to look for a sell trade if the smart trend indicator is in a downtrend (red) and the price is in the overbought level (upper band).

This trend indicator does not repaint.

The full version has the possibility to send alerts, emails and push notification to your smartphone.


Below two buy entry signal examples. The left is a strong signal the right is a weak signal. In both cases, you want to go long in the green area.

    Please build an EA!!!

    Can I use the Indicator to implement in my own EA or is it Copy protected or something like that?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can use the indicator to build an EA.

      1. Rocco Schulz says:

        Sorry, but your Index Buffer of the Indicator doesn’t work correctly. I tried to build an EA. It still import the Indicator but the Values are wrong and not the same like in Data Window because my EA works fully wrong… This ist my Code and it gives wrong Values: “iCustom (NULL,0,”Smart Trend free.ex4″,InputVal1,InputVal2,InputVal3,2,0);” for Upper Band on newest Bar for Example…

        1. Yannick says:

          The last parameter has to be 1, and you can remove the InputVal3. For example:
          double upTrend = iCustom(NULL,0,”Smart Trend free.ex4″,2,1.2,0,1);
          double dnTrend = iCustom(NULL,0,”Smart Trend free.ex4″,2,1.2,1,1);
          double upperBand = iCustom(NULL,0,”Smart Trend free.ex4″,2,1.2,2,1);
          double lowerBand = iCustom(NULL,0,”Smart Trend free.ex4″,2,1.2,3,1);

  14. Michal Brajer says:

    Hi Yannick,
    it’s a great idea to use high/low prices as a basis for the trendline.
    I use similiar strategy in my trading, but there are some differencies : I use three modes (UPTREND, CONSOLIDATION, DOWNTREND) and slightly different criteria for change of the mode. In some situations your criteria seems to me lagging.
    So I would like to slightly rework this indicator for my use and add another lines from higher timeframe to get more accurate picture.
    If I buy full version, could you send me (for extra payment?) source code?

    1. Yannick says:

      If your strategy is easy to implement and you thing that other could also benefit from it, please write your strategies in the forum and I will see if I can implement it. But of course, you can also order a custom modification.

  15. sne says:

    hi wich indicator can i use in binary options?

    1. Yannick says:

      You can use all of them with binary options.

  16. Dee says:

    What is the closing method in the free version of indicator? High\low or close?

    1. Yannick says:

      There are no signals in the free versions.

  17. Velizar Mitov says:

    Hello what is the difference between“ Close“ mode and High/low?

    1. Yannick says:

      Close will five you a signal if the Close Price is above/below the band.
      High/Low will give you a signal, if either the High Price if above or the Low Price is below the band.

  18. Vinícius Marcio says:

    Hello. Do you have the smart trend for MT5?

    1. Yannick says:

      Not yet, I will make MT5 indicators in the future.

  19. Freddy Geudens says:

    Hi Yannick, are you still planning to make an ea for this indi ?
