True Trendline Indicator for MT4 - MT5

Industry standard indicator which draws all trendlines automatically on the main chart. It counts the beginning points from the actual timeframe's historical data, and the trendline ending depends on the last visible pullback level. Multi-timeframe ability, alert functions, customizable styles, candle body or high/low option, and much more...

TrueTL sorts the trendlines into 4 groups and colores them differently:

  • Normal: normal length in actual timeframe. You can adjust the length in bars with the "Normal_TL_Period" setting. Ideal for any usage such as break with or without backtest, turn around, etc. Default style: Gray (Gainsboro) line with normal width.
  • Long: higher timeframe's trendline which is longer than the Normal TL. Ideal usage for turn around (bounce) and target price. For a simple breakout it needs more filtering methods. Default style: Orange (Goldenrod) line with normal width.
  • Three Touches: trendlines that touch the candles three or more times. Less filtering is enough because the 3 or more touches confirm that the market sees them. Ideal for any usage. Default stlye: White line with thicker line.
  • Narrow: In uncertain market situations there are many possible lines. TrueTL filters the „too close” trendlines and sorts them to this group. Ideal to use if you would like to see every detail about the market. Default style: No color (hidden).

Mt4 indicators

Features and settings:

  • Version: the indicator's actual version number. If an update is released, you can simply overwrite the files with our self-extractor or you can do it from the zip file manually (installation steps).
  • Username: enter your username that you received after purchase. Autosave it so if you once entered it is not necessary to enter again. (about our ex4 protection)
  • Auto Refresh: If enabled, the indicator refreshes lines when the candle is closed or if you change the Timeframe or Symbol. If disabled, the indicator redraws only when you run the "[TrueTL] Calculate" script. If enabled, the auto-scroll must be enabled too in MT4 (Example Video). (Backtesting ability: if the auto-scroll is disabled in MT4, and the Auto Refresh is disabled in the indicator's settings too, you can scroll back the chart, and the script will draw all past trendlines until the last visible candle.)
  • Redraw Timeframe: you can adjust the timeframe for the redraw. For example...
  • Normal TL Period: adjust the Normal TL's length in bars (if the trendline length is longer than this, TrueTL marks it as a Long TL, and you can see it as a higher timeframe's trendline). More...
  • NEW! Trendline Showing: you can hide the trendline's label ("TTL_Normal", "TTL_3t" etc.) and filter the upward or downward trendlines if You are looking for only a buy or sell entry.
  • Trendline drawing mode: you can switch between normal (candle's high/low) and candle body and line chart drawing mode.
  • Three Touches recognition: you can set the sensitivity of 3 touches trendline recognition on the Normal TL. More...
  • Lazy Redraw: the pattern recognition algorithm is the heart of TrueTL. It determines the redrawing of trendlines. You can choose this option that redraws trendlines more lazier to a stronger candle pattern so it shows a safer trendline breakout. For example...
  • NEW! Triangle Mode: in this mode the indicator analyzes the whole chart, then selects and draws only the two nearest trendlines: upper and lower. Basically TrueTL draws all possible trendlines to be used for many things: entry, entry-filtering, R/R calculation, SL / TP price, possible reversal price, etc. The "Triangle Mode" is ideal if you are looking for an entry only. It's worth trying it out with the "Lazy Redraw" option also.
  • Mark Highest and Lowest TL: modify the thickness of the highest/lowest trendline ending.
  • Cut TL Endings at breakout: cut the trendline's ending if it's broken. For example...
  • Draw trendlines in the Background: you can move TrueTL's lines to the background.
  • Allow Multiple instances: you can attach two or more instances of the same indicator to one chart. If you would like to use the indicator with old-style object names (if you developed an EA or for another reason) you can disable this function.
  • User Notification Corner: set the corner on the chart to show user notification for example if a new update is released.

Risk warning

Foreign exchange transactions carry a high degree of risk and any transaction involving currencies is exposed to, among other things, changes in a country's political condition, economic climate, acts of nature - all of which may substantially affect the price or availability of a given currency.

Speculative trading in the foreign exchange market is a challenging prospect with above average risk. You must therefore carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and appetite for such risk prior to entering this market. Most importantly, do not invest money that you are not in a position to lose.

In addition, trading on a margin basis means that any market movement will have a proportionate effect on your deposited funds. This can work for you as well as against you. The possibility exists that you could sustain a total loss of initial margin funds.
