Trend Stop indicator for MetaTrader 4

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 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 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.
  • Lua
  • MQL4

  • The sources for this indicator are currently kept closed on my private gitlab server, but feel free to contact me if you are interested.
