Introduction to the Instrend Indicator
The Instrend Indicator is a custom forex trading indicator.
It works on two simple lines and their crossovers are signals for trades. Blue line crossing below the red line reflects a bearish trend. On the contrary, the blue line crossing above the red line reflects a bullish trend.
The indicator is displayed in a separate window placed just below the main trading chart.

It fits all kinds of timeframes and currency pairs.
The default indicator settings can be modified directly from the input tab. Feel free to experiment with the settings and parameters to fit your personal preferences.

The Instrend indicator is well worth adding to your trading collection but remember about having realistic expectations. Just like any other technical analysis tool, is not capable of providing accurate signals 100% of the time. Thus, it will provide false signals occasionally. Its performance will vary significantly depending on market conditions. Feel free to develop your own trading system based around it.
