For developers: the indicator has one signal buffer, it has a value of one after a rectangle is plotted and a value of zero in all other cases. The indicator is called as follows:

double indicator_signals = iCustom(Symbol(),0,"Sweep Trend",TrendPips,TrendBars,signal_shift,0,1);

Recommendation: after a trend movement, the price usually consolidates and moves in a flat. When this condition is fulfilled, it is possible to apply strategies designed for the flat.
