    This indicator puts an address to a website on the chart, taking up valuable space needed for useful information other indicators provide. It is an annoyance and shouldn't be there as it adds nothing of value to the chart. The same information can be found in the 'About' section of the indicator, so the website address is apparently only placed on the chart for marketing purposes. Indicators that do this automatically get one star from me.

    Very good tool. Probably the best fractal indicator on mt4.

    Excellent! Yes, it repaints but it can help show possible reversals. I use it to determine when my possible buy/sells are.
