MetaTrader4 “SDS Inside Bar Alerts” Indicator


This indicator marks Inside Bars (bars with a lower high and a higher low than the previous bar) on your chart. It will also send alerts when one forms, including via e-mail or push notification to your phone. It’s ideal for when you want to be notified of an inside bar set-up but don’t want to have to sit in front of your chart all day.
