The indicator has proven itself best on H1 and higher timeframes, since there is less market noise on long time intervals. SuperTrend indicator is optimally suited for medium-term and long-term trading strategies, while scalping on minute timeframes can give incorrect signals.

SuperTrend consists of two lines that follow the movements of the chart. The red line moves above the descending chart, the green line is located below the chart when it is directed upwards. Accordingly, the red and green lines represent bearish and bullish trends.

SuperTrend indicator signals are based on ATR data, which measures the degree of volatility. By default, the ATR value is 10, but with an increase in the period, the indicator line smoothes out, showing only significant price movements and a global trend. Reducing the value of this parameter, on the contrary, will make the indicator more sensitive to price changes and, as a result, to an increase in the number of false signals.

The indicator allows you to adjust the parameters of the average true range (ATR) and its multiplier in accordance with your trading strategy.

In order not to miss profitable opportunities for opening trades, the indicator provides settings for various types of alerts.
