BB MACD MetaTrader indicator | FREE Forex Trading Indicator

The BB MACD MetaTrader indicator is a basic MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) indicator variation that aids in detecting trend change points and determining the strength of the current trend. The indicator is displayed in a separate window on the chart and consists of two lines (blue and red) and dots (green or magenta). The colour change of the dots is a good signal, and the width of the gap between the two lines indicates the strength of the current trend. This indicator is compatible with both MT4 and MT5.

As the chart example suggests, the signals to buy are when the magenta dots turn into the green ones and the signal to sell is when the green dots become magenta. Trading is better to be performed when both blue and red lines are rather wide.
