The indicator is one of the cheaper tones available, it can be purchased for $15 which will get you unlimited access to it, unlike any other indicators on the MQL5 marketplace, there is no option to rent it so buying it outright is your only option. There is a free demo version available, the free version is fully functional on the GBPUSD pair (history and signals in realtime) while on other instruments it can only use the history function going back 5 bars.


At the time of writing, there were 10 user reviews available, they have provided the indicator with an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5.

This indicator has, in my opinion, the best value comparison to the price, you need to just set the setting properly! That is really important, because if not, it will show you too much signal, anyway believe you don’t need as much. So just set the setting like ——; only with confirmation, and low sensitivity accurate signals! Cheers quys!” – A 5-star review.

Just bought this product, does what it says on the box but really helps you learn your candles without being intrusive. Highly recommended.” – A 5-star review.

NOT good… NOT GOOD AT ALL.” – A 1-star review.

The majority of the reviews are very positive, the one negative review isn’t giving up a lot of information, even with all the positive reviews, we would suggest that you download and try out the free demo version, even with its limitations it will give you a better understanding of how the indicator works and also you will be able to make sure that it fulfills your needs prior to making a purchase.
