TrendMaster is a complete trend following system with strict entry, exit and trade management criteria. The indicator is optimised for weekly, daily and 4-hour and can be used for all trending markets. It was developed primarily for less experienced traders that struggle to determine relevant information from irrelevant information when viewing a chart. The indicator was built to solve the problem that all new traders face.
Setting Up The Indicator
After purchase, open the TradingView indicator library. Under the Invite-Only Scripts section, you will see TrendMaster. Add it to your chart. Next, you must customise your theme settings to allow TrendMaster to take over control of your candle colours. You can find a complete set-up tutorial on our website.
The indicator includes a moving average cloud which serves as a visual guide to local . For a signal candle to print, price must trade above the moving average cloud and above the medium-term trend. By requiring multiple criteria we drastically reduce false entries. When price exits the cloud to the upside it typically trends above and finds support at the cloud during retracements.
By default, TrendMaster will colour your candles in black and white. White candles indicate an uptrend in an asset and the candles will not change colour until the trend has reversed and a counter-trend signal has been printed. Black candles indicate a downtrend, they will remain black until a counter-trend long signal candle has been printed.
A signal candle is printed when the price of an asset closes above or below the moving average cloud and the medium term trend moving average. By requiring two criteria for a single candle to print we will see a drastic reduction in the number of false signals.
The TrendMaster entry technique further reduces the likelihood of false entries. To enter a trade we do not buy the signal candle immediately. Instead, we treat the signal candle as an indication that a trend change is possible. We want to see confirmation of this trend before making an entry. To enter we place a pending order a few ticks above or below the high or low of the signal candle. By doing this we only enter a trade when the asset has shown a continuation in the direction of the suggested trend change.
Once a trade has been taken we remain in that trade until either we have been stopped out on the break of a or the trend has reversed by printing an opposite to trend signal candle. It is important that we remain with the trend to ensure that we capture the maximum opportunity available.

IchimokuScholar – In 2017 I retired from a career in higher education to focus on Trading. I like to trade long term trends, focusing primarily on continuation setups. I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge of trading and take great pleasure in simplifying for newer traders.
I started trading crypto in 2017 and immediately started coding a bunch of tools to improve my quality of life. Some definitely worked out better than others. Like to trade the higher timeframes and drawing horizontal lines on charts. I am also pretty much obligated to like cookies.
