The CCI Trend Indicator for Trend Following Traders

Trend Following

While CCI trading I discovered and created a simple yet powerful forex trend indicator that is the best way to define the trend I have ever seen. Do you think this trend indicator will help you will never lose again? I think it will help for sure! 14 years of trading taught me that price action is everything and using the best trend indicator mt4 to trade with the trend is very helpful.

Introducing the Best Trend Indicator Ever!

Here is how using the best forex trend indicator in the world for mt4 works. The green bars above or the red bars below the zero line are the True Trend and show if the current trend is up or down. Any reading of the true trend above the zero line is positive and means an uptrend in the market while any reading below the zero line negative or a downtrending market.

The thin blue line is called the EntryCCI. We use this to show when price is overbought or oversold against the trend. We are looking for the EntryCCI to be puled away opposite to the trend to have a setup and then wait for price to resume back toward the current trend.

    Throughout the time I have been trading, I also find the CCI one of the most useful indicators. Nice combo there with 20 and 3 periods looks good. I look at the MACD as well. Probably those are the most useful indicators of the all!

    Thank you. This trend indicator is the best. I am using the true trend on my metatrader 4 and it is amazing.

    One question. When will you continue with your youtube videos?

      Look for me to resume videos in the week to come.

        Just a little background. I am a self trader actively trading the six USD pairs and EJ during the London and New York sessions on the one hour charts. I batch trade when there is correlation; however, this hasn’t been the case in recent months. Therefore, I’ve had to adjust my strategy. This forex trend indicator has been a big help to my trading while I wait for correlation to return to the market.

        Have a great weekend.

      The true trend indicator can be used on all time frames in order to best see the trend. It works excellent on all time frames.

    Hi Jordan, nice work with this trend indicator, but it is still foggy, are you trading only one H8 candle or more? you were talking about the criteria of entering, clear, but what about the criteria of exiting? please advise.
    Beast regards

    • Reply Jordan June 27, 2013, 5:05 am

      I use the true trend indicator on all time frames and truly it is the best trend indicator to first show you the trend and also when price is oversold or overbought against the trend which provides excellent entries. In the youtube videos I will get into exits as they occur on current trades.

    I have worked with Jordan. He is absolutely top notch and knows his stuff.
    I’ve just put his indicator on my charts and I’m sure it’s going to help.

    I wanna say that you´re doing a great job, Jordan. The way how you explain the strategies is excellent. Really. I´ve seen a lot in this market and most things only had the reason to get the money from traders which believe in the propaganda of untrue sellers. The Trinity System has logical basic and with discipline traders are able to become successful. Thank you Jordan !
