Accelerator oscillator

Price is fluctuating according to the market movements. Acceleration Technical Indicator measures acceleration and deceleration of the current driving force. Until the price starts changing its direction it starts accelerating in the opposite direction before the market driving force changes its direction, the acceleration of driving force must slow down and reach nil. Before the change in driving force AC indicator will change its direction. As a result before the price it change its direction. If you realize that as a result of earlier warning the Acceleration/Deceleration occurs then it is an evident advantages for you. 

Accumulation distribution

The calculation of accumulation distribution is done by first calculating the money flow multiplier, and this money flow multiplier is then multiplied with the periods volume. This is a momentum indicator used to identify the divergences between stock price and volume flow. Based on investors accumulation on a certain stock this indicator measure supply and demand. 


Alligator indicator is introduced by Bill Williams in 1995. This indicator was developed to help traders to confirm market trend and direction. It includes three lines overlapping on a pricing chart. These three lines indicate the jaw, the teeth and the lips of the monster. The Alligator indicator works best when combines with a momentum indicator then it can also help traders to point out impulse and corrective wave formations. The Alligator indicator is compiled with three smoothed moving averages. The Alligator indicator helps the traders to stay in their position for a long time.

Average Directional Index 

The Average Directional Index measures trend strength without regard to trend direction. The other two indicators are +DI and -DI. By defining trend direction, Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) complement ADX.

It quantifies the strength of the trend regardless of whether it is up or down since ADX is non-directional. The average directional index is a technical analysis indicator used  to identify the strength of a trend. It usually plotted In a chart window  with the DMI (Directional Movement Indicators).

Average True Range Technical Indicator

Average True Range Technical Indicator (ATR) is used to identify the volatility of the market. It shows market volatility. You can use this indicator as a factor of several other indicators and trading systems.

Owing to panic selling if a sheer fall in prices occurs ATR can often reach a high value at the bottom of the market. And at the top of the market and during consolidation indicators will shows low values which are typical for long duration of sideways movement. Trend change can be identified in the following way if the indicator value is high, then the trend change probability is higher. 

The best FOREX trend indicator in the world that works in MT4 consists of a zero line, a green bar, and a red bar. If the green bar is above the zero line it shows the current true trend is up similarly if the red bar is below the zero line it indicate the True Trend is down.
