Bears vs. Bulls Forex Indicator

June 19, 2011 (Last updated on June 26, 2011) by

Total Power Indicator is the latest addition to the MetaTrader indicators list on I’ve got the idea of this indicator from the June issue of the Currency Trader magazine. In short, this indicator uses Bull Power and Bear Power standard indicators to produce a more long-term perspective of the current market situation. The MT4 version of it was already coded by Daniel Fernandez. I’ve converted it to MT5, optimizing some of the code routines. The new version has the following advantages:

  • Properly labeled indicator lines + more informative indicator short name.
  • Better handling of the required amount of bars to start drawing the indicator.
  • Junk code removed.
  • Better code readability.

You can get the code of the MT5 and MT4 versions or read more info about this classical technical indicator.
