Pin Bars can print at any time and it can be easy to miss a signal when you are at work or even if you have to step away from your computer for a few minutes.
If you miss a setup, that could have been the trade that made your week.
So let’s take a look at how this flexible indicator can help you virtually eliminate missed Pin Bar setups…
Summary of How the MT4 Pin Bar Alerts Indicator Works
The great thing about Pin Bars is that, unlike more complex chart patterns, they are easy to define and you can setup an alert to tell you when they appear.
This custom Pin Bar alert indicator for Metatrader 4 will notify you whenever a Pin Bar that meets your criteria prints on your MT4 charts. You can be notified via popup, email, text and/or MT4 mobile app push notification.
Choose one or more of the notification methods that work best for you.
You can also mark the Pin Bars on your charts, or you can hide them and only utilize the alerts feature. Hiding the markers keeps your charts squeaky clean and makes it much easier to analyze price action.
You can customize this indicator by using the following settings…
