Support and Resistance



Support and Resistance MetaTrader indicator — as the name of this indicator suggests, it displays the support and resistance levels. It shows them directly on the chart, providing an easy help when you want to set stop-loss or take-profit level, or when you want to see the next market target. This indicator uses the standard MetaTrader Fractals indicator (by Bill Williams' method) and has no changeable input parameters. This indicator is available for MetaTrader version 4 and 5.

Input parameters

  • EnableNativeAlerts (default = false) — if true, a native MetaTrader popup alert will be used when price closes above or below the support or resistance level.
  • EnableEmailAlerts (default = false) — if true, an email message will be sent when price closes above or below the support or resistance level. Email should be properly configured in MetaTrader via Tools->Options->Email.
  • EnablePushAlerts (default = false) — if true, an email message will be sent when price closes above or below the support or resistance level. Notifications should be properly configured in MetaTrader via Tools->Options->Notifications.
  • TriggerCandle (default = Previous) — the candle to issue alerts on: Previous — the most recently closed candle or Current — the yet unfinished candle.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
