Moving Average Candlesticks Indicator Example MetaTrader Chart

This indicator isn't a very good one to use for direct trading. It simply indicates the moving average cross as well as some other parameters of the chart. Use it to spot the irregularities in the price behavior by observing the candlestick body length and the lengths of shadows. Its change of color might seem a good entry signal but it will give a lot of fake signals too.
