About The Trading Indicators

Pin bars offer traders clues on price actions and as such they are individual candlestick pattern that are usually recognized by their small bodies and long wick.

The DynamicRS_C.ex4 on the other hand is a trend indicator that reveals price change.

When the line of indicator is painted red is denotes a bearish signal, while aqua depicts bullish market sentiment.

The yellow filled line reveals when trend is about changing, hence why we exit at such levels.
