About The Trading Indicators
The ForexCloud resembles a cloud the way it sits itself above or below price bars, offering an overall market direction.
When the cloud is red and sits above price bars, it denotes a bearish trend, while it denotes a bullish trend when it is green and sits below price bars.
The Triple Exponential Moving Average or Trix momentum indicator that was developed by Jack Hutson in the 1980’s and finds its use in the spotting of percentage change in a triple exponentially smoothed moving average.
The Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend-following momentum indicator that reveals the connection between two moving averages of price.
