Detrended Price Oscillator is a trendless price oscillator. This version of a price oscillator is based on the difference between the current price and a simple moving average shifted by (Period / 2) + 1 bars back.
Unlike stochastic, this indicator shows short-term changes in a trend (price waves within a long-term trend). The indicator is displayed in a separate chart window. You can use this indicator in both MT4 and MT5 platforms.
MA_Period (default = 14) - the period of the simple moving average.
BarsToCount (default = 400) - how many bars is used for calculation.
How to trade with Detrended Price Oscillator for MT4 and MT5
Significant price changes are visible when the indicator crosses zero level. But, due to the fact that the indicator is rather slow the best way to use it is to foresee such crossings. It can be used to confirm small trends.
