Detrended Price Oscillator Indicator

October 12, 2010 by

Detrended Price Oscillator is the latest free technical indicator that was uploaded to Like its name suggests, DPO is an oscillator that shows the changes of price direction. The “detrended” part stands for being able to produce signals even when the small changes in the trend are in effect. The MT4 version is very simple and does everything just fine. Although MT5 has its own DPO indicator (inside the Examples folder), it doesn’t work as the original Detrended Price Oscillator should (moving average isn’t shifted properly there). That’s why I also make this indicator available for MT5 too. This indicator has three important features:

  • Very simple and fast.
  • Control indicator’s period and it’s historical length.
  • Detect even the smallest changes in price trend.

You can get the code of the MT5 and MT4 versions or read more info about this price oscillator.

If you find any bugs in this MetaTrader indicator or if you want to make a suggestion regarding its functionality, please, use the commentary form below.
