BirbicatorPRO provides users with four (4) "Trend Modes" that change the core lookback length to either include more or less price action depending on the users trading style. By default, a "moderate" trend length has been selected that is applicable to most situations. In general, as traders select a higher time-frame to evaluate the trend, Birbicator can be set to “Medium” or “Near” on the ‘Trend Length Mode’ value within the menu options to adjust for nearer term analysis on Daily and Weekly charts.
The Trend Mode can be selected from the options menu of the BirbicatorPRO's "Trend Mode Length" drop-down selector:
The following table provides a basis for understanding how to apply the Trend Length Mode setting to charts based on standard moving averages that users may be familiar with.

Just as a 20 Moving Average can be used on a 1 minute chart as well as a Daily chart, the same consideration applies for the BirbicatorPRO. Lower (NEAR and MEDIUM) BirbicatorPRO Trend Modes will provide more "noise" to the price action of the asset as the system attempts to identify trend details over a shorter "lookback" length. Depending on the asset and trading style each mode should be considered when planning and executing trades or building personalized trading systems.
