The XO ATR indicator, which I will tell today, is an optimized version of the popular ATR market analysis tool. Making some changes to its algorithm made it possible to increase the efficiency of the indicator. It forms more accurate signals. The indicator is displayed in a separate window as two colors columns.

The XO ATR indicator file should be placed in the corresponding MT4 directory folder.

As for the settings in the settings, then, at first glance, it may seem that they are very lot. However, only some of the parameters are important for trading.

First of all, this is a variable history. Here you need to specify how the number of candles the indicator should take into account in its calculations.

Re-Paint-MTF is designed to enable or disable the display of readings on all the time intervals available in the trading terminal.

Time-Frame – here we prescribe a timeframe that will be used in trading.

and the last parameter that matters is an ATR-Period. How easy it is to guess, this variable is used to specify the ATR period.

The remaining parameters in the settings of the indicator are used to select colors, as well as ways to notify the trader about the formation of the situation in the market, which is favorable to open the trade order.
