ATR - indicator for MetaTrader 5
The way how the code example provided with metatrader 5 calculates ATR (Average True Range) is, for the sake of speed of execution, using the approximation of what should be a simple moving average (SMA) of TR (True Range). While it produces results very, very similar to simple moving averages, it is still not it. This version is doing that (calculating without an approximation) and it is doing it without slowing down either - the speed of execution will be the same for any period calculated. And it does not require any additional buffer allocation.

As you have probably realized if you have been following my courses, they are designed to give traders a knowledge of both fundamental and
technical analysis because I believe a knowledge of both puts traders in the best position to learn to trade profitably. I also believe that
you can't really make a decision if you are going to trade based mainly off of technicals, fundamentals, or a combination of the two unless you
have a sound understanding of the basics of both fundamental and technical analysis.

How to Trade Symmetrical Triangles like a Pro
The triangle is a very neat pattern, combining price and time in a close relationship. The trendlines which give the price boundaries of
the pattern also serve to limit the timescale. The triangle pattern will be completed and the signal given when the price breaks out and
closes outside the triangle. Usually this will be in the original direction. You can apply the same criteria to this as to any
penetration of a line, which is that an intraday penetration is not usually significant if the price returns, and some people like to see
the price stay outside the line for two days. The penetrated line may become a support or resistance subsequently, and the apex level can
also be an important support or resistance price level in future movement.
