Three Drives 7.2

Metatrader Indicator (MT4/MT5)

  • Overview

    This indicator finds Three Drives patterns. The Three Drives pattern is a 6-point reversal pattern characterised by a series of higher highs or lower lows that complete at a 127% or 161.8% Fibonacci extension. It signals that the market is exhausted and a reversal can happen.

    • Customizable pattern sizes
    • Customizable colors and sizes
    • Customizable breakout periods
    • Customizable 1-2-3 and 0-A-B ratios
    • It implements visual/sound/push/mail alerts

    Three Drives patterns can expand/repaint quite a bit. To make things easier this indicator implements a twist: it waits for a donchian breakout in the right direction before signaling the trade. The end result is an otherwise repainting indicator with a very reliable trading signal.

    • Bullish patterns are blue
    • Bearish patterns are red

    Kindly note that price patterns such as this can expand and the indicator must repaint to follow the expansion of the pattern. If the pattern repaints beyond the ratios entered in the parameters, the pattern will dissapear as it won't be valid any more. To trade these patterns, please resort to the donchian breakout signal.

    The Three Drives pattern does not happen very often: to find more, load the indicator many times in the chart with different amplitudes.
