# [RichG] Easy MTF Strategy v1.1

This is a second attempt at an easy to understand multiple time frame strategy. This one uses ATR for exits. If the position is long, and the price closes below the ATR multiplier, it triggers a close. If the position is short, and the price closes above the ATR/multiplier, it triggers a close. This generates a lot of little trades but is useful because it uses multiple time frames along with cutting losses when the ATR disagrees.

Hi Rich, i m trying to use your indicator on small timeframes but ve got orders limit, is it possible to use it, thanks a lot
Very good MTF Indicator....With Renko its very useful and very clear.
Do you use exit points? Thanks
