Moving Average Currency Strength Meter
Before reading the description of this indicator, I just want to introduce to you following concept
*MOVING AVERAGE LINE - Typical moving average which is based on one chart alone.
*CURRENCY STRENGTH LINE - The moving average of a certain pair in which the strength is based on 28 pairs. Can be said as the REAL MOVING AVERAGE LINE.
Moving Average indeed is one of the most popular indicator which almost every trader use. It can clearly give us where the trend of a pair is going. But the fact still remains that a lot of trader are still having problem making profits by just using MOVING AVERAGE.
Now I introduce you the the most advance way of using MOVING AVERAGES with the taste of CURRENCY STRENGTH METER. The "MAIN CONCEPT" of this indicator is getting the base value of 8 currencies and convert to moving average.
The typical moving average line of EURUSD pair will just all be based on "EURUSD" chart ALONE. But this indicator will give you the REAL MOVING AVERAGE LINE by calculating the real VALUE of EUR on major pairs and the VALUE of USD on all major pairs. This means that the CURRENCY STRENGTH LINE of EURUSD is not just based on the EURUSD chart alone but on all EUR and USD pairs which will give you the MOVING AVERAGE LINE in terms of its strength on other currencies.
This indicator you will show two moving average line. The BLUE line is the normal MOVING AVERAGE LINE which every trader use. While the RED line is the CURRENCY STRENGTH LINE.
