Trend indicators help traders to “trade with the trend”, as the common cliché goes. Indicators help to identify trading opportunities, and for NinjaTrader 8 platform, the FREE Multi Time Frame Trend Line is a must-have indicator.
Trading with the trend – Trend Indicators
Trend trading is a trading style that exploits the momentum of an asset in one direction. While it is possible to make profit with a counter-trading strategy, it is more common for traders to follow price trends.
It starts with identifying the flow of an instrument’s price, and then trading according to that trend. Armed with well defined strategies, trend traders perform technical analysis to identify the rhythm of the price movements and act accordingly.
What is technical analysis?
Financial markets are known to be cyclical, and prices tend to follow similar patterns. Market cycles are identified by reviewing historical price data and looking for repeating patterns. The probabilities of future price movements are then calculated based on these patterns, and this process is known as technical analysis.
A trader will base their trades around the price levels that have in the past held major support or resistance, and hope that the pattern repeats, bringing them profit. To identify these market cycles, traders use technical indicators.
Usually, technical indicators are mathematical tools that analyse past price action and graphically plot their results on charts. They are essential tools in financial markets such as forex, futures, commodity, and indices, and are also popular with crypto traders.
Indicators usually work together to facilitate better analysis, or even to confirm each other’s results. Commonly used indicators include moving averages, stochastics, and the RSI among others. Trading platforms such as NinjaTrader 8 provide all these technical indicators.
The trend line indicator
A trend line is a straight line drawn on a chart to show the momentum of an instrument’s price. It’s drawn by connecting at least two price points and extending it beyond the second price point into the future.
If the first point is lower than the second, the line has a positive slope and will show an up-trend. If the first point is higher than the second point, it will have a negative slope and show a down-trend, such as shown in the image below.
The above image shows a trend line drawn on a 60-minute time frame candlestick chart using the FREE Multi Time Frame Trend Line Indicator. This indicator measures the acceleration in price changes and identifies the trend for the trader.

Should Indicators be used as trading strategies?
Indicators are not strategies, and only perform technical analysis on the market. A trading strategy consists of rules that determine when a trader will take action. Traders make decisions based on information from a combination of several technical indicators.
Additionally, a good trading strategy is based on a trader’s style and goals. However, some traders use indicators as strategies, for example, taking action when price moves up.
