TradingView Smart Trend Filters


Smart Trend Filters are a custom price & volume based indicator that measure the trend of any stock or ETF. They come equipped with a unique color coded display based on underlying trend strength.



Smart Trend Filters are the Trade Risk’s preferred indicator for analyzing a stocks trend using price and volume. They are highly adaptive to recent price action and the real magic comes from the color coded display to signal trend strength.
