This indicator plots the trend channels around the price bars to signal the market trends. It turns blue and appears below the price bars to signal the bullish trend of the market. On the other hand, it turns red and appears above the price bars when the trend is bearish. This indicator also adds a stop level around the price bars to define the possible swing levels of the trend. These stop levels are dynamic and change its position automatically with the change in price actions and allow traders to adjust their stop positions or exit the trade entries.
