Reversal Informer

  • If it would be just a classic candlestick pattern, it would generate much more false signals.
  • The most important filter is the candle itself. The strengths of the candle is adjustable!
  • All important ratios of the candle are adjustable, the wicks will be ignored.
  • The ratio calculation for the candle is based on the ATR-value (default is 20 and adjustable).
  • The confirmation candle needs at least a value of X% of ATR20-value (ATR20-value from current timeframe)

If you like to set a trend filter (MA, Kijun-sen), choose the value and the direction => with or against the trend => signals in both directions are possible.

When the confirmation candle reaches its value, it will not disappear (no repaint).


  • based on classic candle pattern
  • no repaint
  • test mode
    • use a second indicator and set test_mode true, it will move the arrows and change the colors, which is perfect to compare different settings
  • no crossover signal
  • signal after close ± X pips
  • inverse trend option
  • reversal candle is adjustable
  • switch confirmation candle on, off
  • all Timeframes
  • all instruments
  • 3 different moving averages and Kijun-sen as trend filter


  • 2 alert sessions (from - to)
  • alert
  • arrows
  • send email
  • screenshot
  • push notification


  • Bars to process - the number of bars of the chart you want to be analyzed (60 to 1000 is recommended).
  • Alert - activates the pop-up alerts.
  • Email - if true, it shows the selected info in header.
  • Notification - if true, it sends the alert to the MetaTrader 4 APP of your smartphone.
  • Screenshot - if true, it sends the alert with a screenshot to ...\MetaTrader 4\MQL4\Files.
  • show Arrows - if true, it shows the chosen arrows only.
  • show History Arrows / only "Live-Setting" - if true, there is no history arrow, only the first upcoming arrow of the trend direction will appear and stay, as long as the timeframe and instrument will not be changed.
  • Kijun-sen Filter - if true, the Kijun-sen from Ichimoku gets involved as a trend filter.
  • Trend MA, MA II, MA III - signals will come in trend direction of the MAs only, an opportunity to filter Reversal Patterns from corrections.
  • inverse Trend - shows the signal against the trend as a real Reverse Signal, only if a Trend MA is set up. (Signal with the trend are often much better.)
  • Trend - predefined trend values (8, 13, 36 SMA).
  • Trade-Session A / B - define time slots for signals.
  • Candle-Properties in relation to ATR - define the signal candle in ratios to the ATR in %.
  • plus ATR-Value in % to fill the signal - to get the signal, the price needs to run a certain value after the reversal pattern.
  • Arrow Style - choose a arrow style = thin, cross, normal, hollow, Thumbs, Triangle.
  • Arrow Position - default is 0.6. Nice to have if you compare settings with a second/third indicator.
  • send short Comment - add personal comments to your signals in Alert, Notification, Email.
  • Email Header - change the email header for your personal needs.
  • Picture height - default is 720, if Screenshot=true.
  • Picture width - default is 1280, if Screenshot=true.
  • Picture short Comment - if you like to give your filename an additional information.
  • use confirmation-candle - without the confirmation candle, it is not a reversal pattern anymore. (The original Pattern requires the confirmation candle.)
  • Test Mode - compare settings and use a second Reversal Indicator in the same chart and activate "Test Mode".

Important rules

  • Look for an instrument with an obvious upcoming movement in a clear direction on a higher timeframe.
  • Entry right after a signal
  • Exit example: major Fibonacci and dynamic support/resistance lines. Use the same to move your stop and for taking first profits.
  • If the trade still runs, ignore further arrows.
  • SL example: below/above the second higher/lower candle.


  • I only go for a clear trend on the higher timeframe
  • I stay out before high-impact news hit the market
  • Always on my mind, major Support and Resistance
  • No trade without money management, please calculate your risk, trade smart
  • There is no guarantee of success as in any trading business / in my examples above
