The Forexoma-MACD is a modified indicator designed for the Metatrader 4 platform which is based on the MACD technical indicator. It was designed to be easier to read for the trader, as standard MACD signals can be somewhat complex for the beginner trader. In addition, it is designed to detect trend changes earlier as we will see later. It is a color-coded indicator which changes its color as soon as the analyzed asset changes trend.
This allows traders to detect the market trend much earlier than they could with the conventional MACD on the MT4 platform. The Forexoma-MACD actually works as a histogram whose bars change their color according to the current trend. Using the conventional MACD indicator on some occasions can cause traders to open their positions in the market when most of the price momentum is diminishing. This causes the trader to lose valuable pips of profit that could be obtained if he opens his positions earlier.
