Line and Shadow

This simple indicator shows the trend direction and power, as well as entry and exit points. Line and Shadow indicator consists of the main line and trend shadow lones (the longer the shadows, the stronger the trend).


The main indicator setting is the period parameter, while the remaining settings are auxiliary ones.

  • Show_Shadow - show/hide shadows.
  • Show_ARROW - show/hide arrows and market entry points.
  • Show_max_Lines - show/hide the maximum possible profit lines.
  • ALERT - enable/disable trend change notifications in the terminal.
  • Email - enable/disable e-mail notifications.
  • Push - enable/disable push notifications.


The indicator works correctly only with 5-digit (all periods) and 4-digit quotes (H1, H4, D1, W1, and MN). In all other cases, the indicator may show false entry points.

Version 1.6 - 2016.01.25
Added a supplementary buffer. Now it is possible to write a custom EA.
int Trend = iCustom(NULL,0,"Line and Shadow",12,true,true,true,clrPurple,clrCrimson,clrCrimson, clrCrimson,false,false,false,4,0);
if (Trend==1) Print("UP");
if (Trend==-1) Print("DOWN");
