A trend following indicator published in IFTA Journal by Bharat Jhunjhunwala. It is mainly to be traded on big timeframes.

The B-Xtrender elucidates the dilemma of differentiating a trend change from a minor correction, thus providing specific entry, scaling and exit signals. It is an indicator created to give a single glance of the ongoing trend. Even a casual look at the system can acquaint the viewer about the long-term and shortterm trend.

Two indicators used in conjunction constitute the B-Xtrender.
The first indicator determines the short-term trend while the second indicator determines the long-term trend. Once the clarity over market movement is established, a myriad of entry techniques can be used to trade, with the help of the B-Xtrender.

For anyone looking into the indicators please have in the source below where logic behing the indicator is nicely explained.

    Con la programmazione assistita, ho generato questi due screener, uno long e l’altro short. Le strategie non ho ancora provato a crearle. Posto i due screener e aspetto qualche commento. A me pare funzionino nel cercare titoli adatti, non
    ho provato con indici, forex e altro. Un saluto

    Hello Nicolas, I’d like to know why you chose to use simple average functions to define shortTermXtrender and longTermXtrender while Bharat Jhunjhunwala in the article you pointed out was using exponential average functions. Thank in advance for your answer. Gabriel

    • Nicolas • 242 days ago #

      The average used are EMA already, average[shortl1,1]
      1 stands for Exponential.

    I suspected something like this but in the PRT documentation I couldn’t find anything to explain the second parameter of the “average” function. So I suppose that by using this second parameter we can define other types of averages in the same way. Anyway, thank you for your quick response.
