MT4 - MetaTrader 4
Version 4.00 Build 1160 or greater


The Baseline indicator is used to find possible entry points. This one is based on the No Nonsense Forex way of trading. When price crosses the baseline (a moving average) then either a blue, orange, or red dot will be drawn. If blue then look for a possible BUY. If orange look for a possible SELL. If red then no trade as price has gone past the baseline greater than 1 x the current ATR.

Currently there are over 40 different moving averages to choose from. This version has 10 presets where you can save and load your favorite baseline settings. You can also share these settings with other charts in MT4.

Another added feature is the ability to reposition the buttons to an empty sub-window. This eliminates the possibility of the mouse clicks calling up any other nearby indicators that might be clicked on. It also doesn't block anything on the main chart. To gain more room you can simply reduce the height of the subwindow. It is recommended to put the included subwindows spacer as the first indicator, then add any other indicators below that.
