Example and strategy
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 bodies' length and the length of their shadows (wicks). The change of color might seem like a good entry signal, but it will give a lot of fake signals too.
