About The Trading Indicators

GMMA_Long.ex4 indicator is a variant of the Guppy Multiple Moving Averages (GMMA) and is deployed in spotting changing trend, via a method that combines two groups of moving averages with varying time periods.

The Fractal Adaptive Moving Average abbreviated as FRAMA, is a technical tool for MetaTrader 4 that was designed by John F Ehlers.

The FRAMA is a type of Adaptive Moving Average that deploys fractal geometry to dynamically fine-tune its smoothing period to fit the altering price action over a given time.

The FX5_Divergence_V2.1.ex4 is a powerful divergence tool deployed in spotting price reversal points from support and resistance zones.

It normally issues a relatively early signal compared to those given by moving average indicators.
