Impulse System Global

Description

Impulse System Global is an indicator impulse trading system based on Moving Average and MACD Histo Global.

The idea of the impulse system which is based on Moving Average and MACD Histogram was first offered by Dr. Alexander Elder in his book "Come Into My Trading Room".

The system allows users to choose the calculation method (Moving Average and MACD Histo Global) based on a single, double or triple moving average with identification of primary signal of probable reverse of the previous tendency.

You can color bullish and bearish moods.

Purpose

The indicator can be used for manual or automated trading in an Expert Advisor.

The trading rules state that you should not sell when bars are blue, and you should not buy when they are red. Unpainted bars allow traders to consider their further actions: buy or sell.

Rules of action: In the beginning it is necessary to wait for a signal of a possible reverse of a tendency, and then the beginning of coloring of bar in the same direction. 

For automated trading, the values of any double type indicator buffer are used:

  • for coloring of bars - 0, 1, 2 or 3. The values must not be equal to EMPTY_VALUE!
  • for signal of reverse of bulls tendency - 4. The values must not be equal to EMPTY_VALUE!
  • for signal of reverse of bears tendency - 5. The values must not be equal to EMPTY_VALUE! 


Recommendations
