About The Trading Indicators
The Money Flow Index or the MFI is a momentum indicator created by Gene Quong and Avrum Soudack, and it employs both volume and price to measure selling and buying pressure.
The Fisher_m11 on the other hand is a simple histogram indicator that isolates strength and the course of the trend and alerts changes in trend.
Its code is devoid of any typical MT4/MT5 indicator.
