Default VMA Zones

I created a new indicator called VMA Zones.

You can find it in the File Sharing forum (indicator section), or here:
http://www.ninjatrader-support2.com/...id=191&catid=1

VMA Zones charts an upper and lower region on your chart using the VMA indicator. VMA (Variable Moving Average) adjusts to low volatility and high volatility periods automatically, by using the CMO for calculations.

You can use the VMA Zones as a "Kill Zone" (don't trade inside the zone), or you can use it as a trigger or confirmation when to enter or exit a trade.

In the below pictures, the indicator is the yellow shaded region on the top panel.






You can go long once a full bar completely closes above the upper line, or go short once a full bar completely closes below the lower line.

I hope you can find it useful!

Mike

No because the other indicators as seen in the shot are not public. I will be posting them on my blog at some point.

Hi Mike,

I would never ask for your private indicators.

I do like your color selections for your charts.

I wanted to try them on some of my "private" indicators/charts.

Like your blog,

RJay

Hi RJay,

Here it is (xml inside zip). Will need some cleaning up I wrote an article on my blog about using custom RGB colors that might help as well:

Thanks for sharing.

This could easily be adaptable to include other MAtypes as well.


*EDIT*
Never mind, I see this has been addressed:

(Also a bit off topic, but what is the 'Mike Trend' indicator as seen on your blog? Has it been shared? It looks a bit like a cross between a Fisher indicator and a BB squeeze with the slope of a slow moving average as a directional filter...)
