SuperTrend Indicator – the best indicator of trend change

The Supertrend indicator is a custom forex indicator that generates accurate buy and sell signals in a trending market. As the name suggests, the “Supertrend” is a trend-following indicator just like moving averages and MACD (moving average convergence divergence). The indicator is displayed as blue and red line that is plotted on price bars and these colors indicate the current trend – upward or downward.

How to use SuperTrend indicator?

The trading rules of the SuperTrend indicator are explained below.

Buy entry signals

  • SuperTrend is blue
  • The price is above the blue line

Sell entry signals

  • SuperTrend is red
  • The price is below the red line

Exit trade / take profit is possible in two ways:

  • Aggressive – when changing the color of the indicator to the opposite
  • Conservative – when the price crosses the indicator line

The indicator is easy to use and provides an accurate direction about an ongoing trend. The Supertrend indicator is created with two parameters, namely period and multiplier. The average true range (ATR) plays an important role in Supertrend as the indicator uses ATR to calculate its value. The ATR indicator signals the degree of price volatility.

Just like any other indicator, the Supertrend works best when used with other indicators such as MACD, Parabolic SAR, RSI, etc., but it can be a great standalone trading tool too. You can also add it to your best proven trading system or strategy.
