3 Moving Average Cross Signal Alert Forex Indicator For MT4

The 3 Moving Average (3 MA) cross signal alert Forex indicator represents a multiple time frame Metatrader 4 indicator that provides profitable buy and sell trading signals.

It uses a fast, medium and slower moving average crossover system for better accuracy.

Here’s how you can buy and sell currency pairs with the 3 Moving Average (3 MA) cross signal alert forex indicator:

  • Red upward pointing arrow of the 3 MA Cross indicator pops up below the candlesticks for a buy trend.
  • Green downward pointing arrow of the 3 MA Cross indicator pops up above the candlesticks for a sell trend.

Tip: In most cases, combining the 3 MA cross signal alert Forex indicator with the MACD indicator yields a powerful system that’s profitable for any trade style (scalping, day trading, swing trading).

In this case:

A buy trend takes place when the silver histograms of the MACD indicator are positioned above the zero horizontal level, while the 3 MA cross signal alert indicator pops up a red upward pointing arrow that stays below the candlesticks.

A sell trend takes place when the silver histograms of the MACD indicator are positioned below the zero horizontal level, while the 3 MA cross signal alert indicator pops up a green downward pointing arrow that stays above the candlesticks.
