About The Trading Indicators

The Parabolic-close custom indictor is an enhanced Parabolic SAR indicator that can be used in analyzing trending markets.

The Parabolic-close is constructed on the price chart in the form of a line.

It shares a lot of similarities with the Moving Average Indicator, but the only difference is that it moves with higher acceleration and may alter its position in relation to price.

The ParabolicM MetaTrader4 indicator is a simplified Parabolic SAR technical indicator.

The indicator was first designed for studying trending markets.

The indicator is built on the price chart, shares some similarities with the Moving Average technical indicator, but differs due to the fact that the Parabolic SAR moves with higher acceleration and possibly alters its position in view of price.

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.
