About The Trading Indicators
The chimp-scalper is designed for both scalpers and intraday traders to allow them gauge trends when the colored histograms adjusts above or below the 0.00 level.
The ema-crossover-signal custom indicator is a trend seeking indicator built on the crossover of two exponential moving averages.
It will generate a signal when the fast and slow EMA crosses.
The float-pivot is a forex indicator that updates pivot points dynamically at the open of every new price bar for any forex pair and its accompanying timeframe.
