The Chandelier Exit is an ATR-based MT4 trend indicator. It identifies the current trend condition and plots possible trend breakout levels simultaneously.
Unlike simple moving averages, this indicator only reacts when the price makes a significant movement, like breaking the recent market highs and lows. Eventually, it allows you to anticipate breakout trading opportunities with solid trend confirmations.
