 +====== Trend Stop indicator for MetaTrader 4 ======
 +
 +===== Project description =====
 +
 +This was a simple project aiming at porting an implementation of a TrendStop indicator from the FXCM Trading Station 2 platform to MetaTrader 4 platform.
 +
 +  * The original implementation was taken from http://​fxcodebase.com/​code/​viewtopic.php?​f=17&​t=12728&​hilit=trend+stop. Yet, this page only provided the **compiled lua byte code** of the indicator, which could not be used reliably to convert the source code (requires decompilation).
 +  * So I rather used the raw specifications on the indicator behavior from {{https://​www.fxcmapps.com/​apps/​trendstop/​|this page}}, and used those specs to build it from scratch in MQL4.
 +  * Then I added the support for Trend Stop coloring as described on the initial page, and now I have a working **TrendStop** indicator with coloring support in MetaTrader4 as shown in the screenshot below.
