    For the first time ever, TradeBuilder Core now includes an auto-filtering component called the Technical Filter. The name derives from filter's underlying algorithm, which is based on our proprietary technical analysis techniques. It is effective at filtering noisy markets, with 3 settings to suit different trading strategies - from swing to trend following. The application and effect of each Technical Filter setting is presented in the 4 screenshots below. Filter strength grows exponentially with Filtering input increments.

    EUR/USD H1: TradeBuilder Core v7 compounding Double MA Cross (2MA) + Commodity Channel Index (CCI) + Stochastic Oscillator (STOCH) + Heikin Ashi (HA)

    Above setup without Technical Filter (Filtering = 0)

    The market signals are frequent, and although you could remove the noise by changing individual integrated indicator settings we're going to use the Technical Filter in the following 3 steps.

    Filtering = 1 (light)

    Filtering = 2 (standard)

    Filtering = 3 (maximum)


Tradebuilder - Core Edition is constantly expanding in functionality and capability. Below are some of the recently added features, free to all license holders.


    The Momentum oscillator (also available in TradeBuilder Classic) tracks price movement's rate of change. Think of it as the velocity at which price is changing, in either positive (trending up) or negative (trending down) direction. Momentum is effective for trading trend, especially with higher Period values, and when compounded with trend-geared indicators like the Moving Average Cross.

    OsMA is derived by calculating the variance between a convergence/divergence oscillator and its smoothing (moving average). It is effective at gauging momentum strength as well as directional bias, which is why OsMA is most effective in trend-geared strategies. Most traders use the 0-line crossovers as signal triggers. A cross above the 0 OsMA line indicates a long signal while below indicates a short. UpLimit and DownLimit parameters can further improve signals by filtering out errant or slow price action.

    EXAMPLE: EUR/USD H1, OSMA-based trend setup


    ATR is an excellent volatility measuring tool and as such can effectively filter out consolidating (channels, triangles, wedges) or erratic (thrust-driven) price action. Since it focuses almost exclusively on volatility, ATR is a non-directional indicator. That means you should compound it with one of the 6 directional integrated indicators to give your setup a directional context. In a nutshell, when activated, ATR improves quality and profitability of directional indicators such as double moving average cross or OsMA. The screenshot below demonstrates just that.

    EXAMPLE: The same EUR/USD H1 setup from OsMA section above but with ATR filtering applied

    The result is fewer signals but of higher quality and profit ratio.

For full details pertaining to TradeBuilder - Core Edition v4.0 (including a tutorial) please see the official release post.

Version 4.5 press release is available here.


    Core's algorithm has been enhanced, and now issues signals when %K and %D lines cross, but only while the cross takes place above or below overbought/oversold limit levels, effectively increasing the quality of each signal. The old logic only considered the faster, %K line's position in respect to OB/OS limits. Below is a screenshot showing an AUD/USD M15 chart running Core v3's enhanced Stochastic OB/OS.


    Originally developed by Alexander Elder, the Force Index takes both price and volume into consideration and can effectively be used to determine market weakness (see screenshot below). It is best used in combination with 1 or 2 additional indicators such as RSI and especially the trend-following MA Cross. A full tutorial is available HERE.
    Below is a GBP/USD M5 setup example, featuring Force Index compounded with a Moving Average cross.

    Full details can be found on version 2.0 release page


    There's a great debate over which is better RSI or CCI as an oscillator, so our thinking was why not include both for both schools of trading. As evidenced by the screenshot below, CCI does seem to filter (reduce false signals) lower time frame markets rather nicely when compounded with the double moving average cross.

    All the details can be found on version 1.2 release page


    Just added to Core's set of features, is a new parameter that activates a superb range-trading strategy based on Stochastic Oscillator overbought/oversold levels. It is very effective for scalping the range when the market is not trending.

    For example, a popular Stochastic overbought/sold strategy is to sell when lines cross above 80 level, and buy when they cross under 20. To accomplish this, just set Overbought_Sold_On to true, UpLimit to 20 and DownLimit to 80. That's it.

    More information is available on version 1.1 release page.

INDICATOR MANAGEMENT (with a built-in Market Bias Module)

It may be difficult to remember which integrated indicators you applied toward your strategy. That is why TradeBuilder comes with a visual dashboard, which lists your strategy components (in real time, as you select them) and remains constantly visible on the main chart for quick reference. Labels in blue are the integrated indicators currently being compounded; pink = active filters; orange = active alert settings. Also integrated into the dashboard is the Market Bias Module, which you can use to validate signals with prevailing market conditions

BULLISH (Green - right circle) – An underlying bull market has been detected. BUY signals issued during this period have the highest probability of succeeding.

RANGING (Yellow - center circle) – Market is not exhibiting signs of pronounced trend. Consolidation (channels, triangles, wedges) is likely. Good conditions for scalping setups, bad for trend.

BEARISH (Red - left circle) – An underlying bear market has been detected. SELL signals issued during this period have the highest probability of succeeding.



TradeBuilder takes only a minute to install, and is very easy and intuitive to use.

  1. Double-click (or tap) on Install TradeBuilder – Core Editionself-extracting file, and keep clicking Next until the installation is complete. That's it. All recommended, default settings will be preselected for you, but you will have a chance to customize the installation process if you so desire.

  2. Select any combination of indicators you would like TradeBuilder to utilize, and configure their conditions for a target market. In this example, I compounded 3 out of 5 available integrated indicators and applied them to the EUR/USD market.
    Double MA Cross: Periods: 4,6; Price Types: 6,0; MA Types: 1,1; Shift: 0,0
    RSI: Period: 7; BUY Strength: 55; SELL Strength: 45; Price Type: 0
    Stochastic Oscillator: Periods (%K, %D, S): 4,3,3; BUY Strength: 51; SELL Strength: 49; Price Field: 0; MA Type: 0; Mode Identifier: 1;
  3. Once these conditions are met, TradeBuilder will issue a signal via arrow, audio, and pop-up alert. All alerts are always issued on confirmation, on a candlestick, bar or line once the period closes, and never repaint.

    You may additionally set up Push-to-Phone Notifications and Email alerts. The first near-instantaneously forwards all TradeBuilder Core signals to your smartphone (iOS and Android), while second delivers all signals right to your inbox.

    Push-to-Phone Notifications is a new feature recently added to Marko Nikolic software. Push notifications allow you to trade signals generated by the desktop version of Metatrader 4 (onto which TradeBuilder Core is installed) without having to physically be next to the computer. Think of your desktop (or, alternatively, VPN/VPS) as a signal server, and your smartphone as a signal recipient. Once you set up TradeBuilder Core on the desktop, you can run it 24 hours and execute signals as they are sent to your phone – Metatrader 4 mobile hooks to your broker for order execution.

    Push-to-Phone Notifications is a reliable and fast way of receiving the signals while on the go. If you prefer more traditional methods, the e-mail forwarding functionality is also built-in.

  4. (optional) Use multiple instances of TradeBuilder, each with a different set of conditions, if your trading style involves using multiple strategies. For example, one instance could be optimized for market scalping, another for longer term range trading, and yet another could serve as an early warning system for trend change.



Tradebuilder works well with trending and ranging markets. Many of the bundled indicators are programmed with optional filters capable of detecting and avoiding times of low liquidity and/or volatility. For example, all oscillators (RSI, Stochastic, Momentum, etc.) within TradeBuilder Core include customizable filters, which can be used to avoid a) overbought and oversold levels, and b) periods of low market interest (range-bound action) helping traders enter markets only during periods of higher trend momentum. Compare the two screenshots below. One is setup without any filters. The other is the same setup with RSI oversold/overbought filter rules applied.
Note: Aside from TradeBuilder, you do not have to add other indicators to your charts while trading. I added them for illustrative purposes only.
