BB MACD MetaTrader forex indicator — is a basic MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) forex indicator variation, which helps detect the trend change points and measure the current trend’s strength. The indicator is drawn in a separate window on the chart and consists of two lines (blue and red) and dots, which can be either green color or magenta color. The change of the indicator dots’ color is a good entry signal provider, while the width of the gap between the two lines indicates the current trend’s strength. This indicator is available for forex MT4 and MT5.
