About The Trading Indicators

The ChandelierExit.ex4 indicator was created by Charles Le Beau and featured in Alexander Elder’s books, the Chandelier Exit.

It is broadly used for setting stop-losses in a trending market, however, the ChandelierExit can also be used as a trend trading tool.

The CCI_Woodies.ex4 custom indicator is simply two CCI indicators with different periods displayed in a single Metatrader 4 indicator’s sub window.
