To open a certain trade using the HMA Trend TT indicator, it should be determined the current trend. To do this, in turn, the color and direction of the indicator line are taken into account. After determining the trend, it should be considered the moment of opening the trade, which is determined taking into account the color and direction of the arrow formed in the indicator window.

Signal for Buy trades:
- The indicator line has a color with a growth value and moves up. An upward arrow is formed below it.
Upon receipt of such conditions that characterize an uptrend, a buy trade can be opened. If the current values of the indicator change, the trade should be closed. At this moment, a change in the current trend is possible, which in turn will allow considering the opening of new trades.
Signal for Sell trades:
- The indicator line is directed down and has a color with a falling value. An arrow is formed above it, pointing down.
A sell trade can be opened immediately upon receipt of such conditions on a signal candle. This will indicate the presence of a downtrend in the market. When the trend changes, namely when the opposite conditions are received from the indicator, the current trade should be closed and a new one should be considered.
