The 2MA Crossover With Price is a Metatrader 4 Forex signals indicator that belongs to the category of popular trend indicators.
It’s widely used in technical analysis of different financial markets (Forex, Stocks, Futures,..).
The indicator is the perfect choice for any type of trader, considering the fact that it forms dodger blue and magenta colored arrows on the chart window upon being added.
Once the indicator is added on your Metatrader 4 platform, it shows up either as an upward pointing dodger blue arrow or a downward magenta pointing arrow.
The indicator is primarily made up of two moving averages, and at every instance these lines intersect or cross, an arrow is formed.
Here’s how you can buy and sell from the 2MA Crossover With Price forex indicator:
- Dodger blue upward pointing arrow pops up fairly below the candlesticks on the activity window for a buy trend.
- Magenta downward pointing arrow pop up slightly above the price bars on the chart window for a sell trend.
Tip: In most cases, merging a Stochastic Oscillator with the 2MA Crossover With Price indicator counterpart creates a vastly profitable system for medium and short term trading.
In this case:
- A buy trend takes place when the Stochastic Oscillator lines breaks above the 50 horizontal level, while the 2MA Crossover With Price indicator displays its dodger blue upward pointing arrow.
- A sell trend takes place when the Stochastic Oscillator lines breaks below the 50 horizontal level, while the 2MA Crossover With Price indicator displays its magenta downward pointing arrow.
