3rd Generation Moving Average MetaTrader indicator — is an advanced version of the standard moving average (MA), which implements a rather simple lag-reducing procedure based on the longer MA period. The method was first described by M. Duerschner in his article Gleitende Durchschnitte 3.0 (in German). The presented version uses λ = 2, which provides the best possible lag-reducing. Higher λ increases similarity with the classic moving average. The indicator is available for both MT4 and MT5. It doesn't require using any DLL.
MA_Period (default = 50) — a period of the 3rd generation moving average.
MA_Method (default = 1) — method of the moving average. 0 — SMA, 1 — EMA, 2 — SMMA, 3 — LWMA.
As you see, the 3rd Generation MA (red line) offers slightly less lag than the conventional EMA (blue line) and reacts to the price changes faster. Unfortunately, it is still prone to lag and may produce false signals. You can use the 3rd Generation Moving Average Forex indicator the same as the standard moving average — to detect the current trend direction.
Getting these free Metastock tips and online tutorial is a huge step in becoming a Metastock Expert. Read this quick guide on inside day function.
An inside day function refers to a two-period pattern that suggests a potential reversal or deceleration of the current trend. It occurs when the current period’s high is less than or equal to the high for the previous period and the current period’s low is greater than or equal to the low of the previous period. In other words, it’s where the range of the latest period is entirely nestled within the range of the previous period. Also, it’s important to note that if any of the following periods are still within this range MetaStock identifies the inside day as still existing.
When interpreting the inside day it isn’t really considered bullish or bearish; rather it foreshadows a significant move or breakout. Remember however, it can provide many false signals unless used in conjunction with other conditional statements. For example:
Mov(C,21,S) > Mov(C,35,S)
This formula specifies that a stock must exhibit an inside day and that the 21 period simple moving average must be greater than the 35 period simple moving average. Since an inside day foreshadows a potentially explosive move, this code isolates these occurrences wherever they exist in an uptrend. Effectively, we’ve set up our gate, and the inside day function is the trigger.
Most Technical and Retail Traders have heard about Buy Side Institutional Accumulation and Distribution, but few understand another institutional action which is ROTATION.
Accumulation is the acquiring of hundreds of thousands, to millions of shares of stock over an extended period of time. Quiet Accumulation is the most common nowadays which is when institutions use Dark Pools aka Alternative Trading Venues that do not show their activity on the exchanges. Buy Side Institutions are able to hide their 100,000 – 500,000 share lot activity from High Frequency Traders HFTs, Independent Investors, Retail Traders, and Small Mutual Funds and Small Pension Funds Managers by using the Dark Pool venues. This enables them to buy large to giant quantities of stock over time without disturbing price. The primary different between exchange activity and Dark Pool activity, is the ability of the Buy Side Institutions to not alter the trend that is underway at that time.
Accumulation INCREASES the amount of money in the stock market fueling Bull Markets and Uptrends, even though the Institutions buy in such a way so that price does not move much when they are buying.
Distribution is the selling of a large quantity of stock overtime, OR because of redemption demands. High redemption demands tend to occur near the end of an Intermediate Term Correction or the end of a Bear Market. Therefore Dark Pool Distribution is often faster than Dark Pool Quiet Accumulation. Dark Pool Distribution is when Buy Side Institutions sell huge quantities of stock without moving price much.
Distribution removes money from the stock market, which fuels more downside selling.
Rotation patterns occur during the mid to final years of a Great Bull Market which is a Bull Market that lasts for more than 4 years. Quiet Rotation™ is the systematic, and carefully calculated selling of shares of one stock and the buying of another stock. Rotation patterns tend to slowly bend trends either in a Bowl Bottoming Formation OR in a Rounding Top Formation. Platforms are also a common pattern for Rotation in or out of a stock.
While Day Trading, Shorting the Stock that is strongest in the day and coming out with profit confidently and easy may sound to many like trying to read computer up side down. And it is indeed like that for most traders.
What many of them lack is a robust tool set to identify the exact point where to "reverse" or "fade" the Stock and take a reverse trade. Short trade in the case of Strongest Stock.
Superior Profit Day Traders have the tool they need for such situations. A tool set that is easy to use and unambiguous. And they used it beautifully today by Shorting Disney (DIS) as a Day Trade.
As you can see above, Media was the strongest Industry Group in DOW today (10th Aug 2016). And that was mostly due to Disney. Disney was clearly the Strongest Stock in DOW from beginning of day. Later it pulled back a bit. Still ending the day second most strong in Dow Jones Industrial Average.
In between that up move and pull back, our Superior Profit Traders easily took the Short Day Trade and profited from it.
Here is how.
Disney was in news from morning as its earnings came out and the Stock started going up strongly. Superior Profit traders looked up the Stock using easy to use ready made templates.
Below is Disney Daily chart using Clean Template. That clearly shows the potential resistance points in terms of Watermark Level (horizontal pivot levels) as well as Memory Trend Lines - very smart and automatically drawn trend lines that may come from few days back or few years back.
Traders noted that the Memory Resistance was around 99 as marked in the chart above.
They also looked up the Weekly chart - below the Backdrop Template view of Disney using Weekly chart. Backdrop is the usual template used to analyze Weekly charts in CUE System.
Here also, the traders noted that the Resistance Memory was at same level of around 99.
That 99 level was thus established the potential Short point for the Stock.
Now what was left was to use Intraday (5 or 10 Minute) chart using CUE Fine Tune Template to take a Short Day Trade when the opportunity came. As explained below.
Superior Profit Day Traders waited patiently for price to reach the pre-decided resistance level of 99 AND then tilt down - just enough so CUE System could draw the down arrow Stretch Release Bearish signals for him. A signal to take the Short.
With Stop just above Day's High - that Stop was never hit. Exact level of Stop was decided using CUE Protection Signal (not shown here).
The Stock fell from the Short Entry Stretch Release point and never looked back.
Some traders booked profit as the Stock went down and covered much more than the Risk amount.
Some closed the trade as Fine Tune chart showed the Bullish Stretch Release signal (up arrow) signal as marked in the chart.
If partial position was held, that was closed at End of Day. As the trade was initiated as Day Trade our traders don't usually carry it over to next day.
This was an easy Day Trade - Shorting the strongest Stock of the day. All that was needed was to find the Memory Resistance in Daily and Weekly. Patiently wait for price to come there. And let CUE System draw the down arrow Stretch Release signal to tell one to Short Disney with very narrow Stop Loss and much bigger potential profit.
A robust CUE system essential to the trade. As was a good understanding of how to use these simple CUE Charts.
To ensure our traders are always fresh with CUE Charts, Superior Profit conducts regular Weekly Live Class explaining the system to traders all over the world. You are most welcome to join the classes by registering here. That is if you would like to take such confident Short trades (or Long trades) - even if that is against what media is telling us at that time.
Confidently. And profiting from what we see on CUE Charts rather than following media discussions.
Day Trading on E-Mini Future is possible almost 24 hours a day. Almost every day of the week.
CUE Global is a complete system that is used by investors and traders. From Long Term Investment to Swing Trade to Day Trade. All over the world.
Traders use CUE System to trade all sorts of instruments: Stock, ETF, Option, Future, Forex.
On 15th August 2016 I had posted a blog describing in detail one way I use CUE System for Forex Day Trading. You may read that Forex Day Trade blog here.
And just a few days before that; on 11th August 2016; I also posted a blog describing a real life Stock Day Trade using CUE Charts. You may read that Stock Day Trade blog here.
Some readers requested me to post a blog on Day Trading E-Mini Future using CUE System. I am writing this blog to explain that.
CUE System techniques used to Day Trade Stock, Forex, Future, etc. are interchangeable. So all E-Mini Future Day Traders will gain valuable insight from the two blogs mentioned above. Just as Stock and Forex Day Traders will gain valuable insight from this post.
In the Stock and Forex examples, I looked at only the instrument that I was trading. I did not use correlated instruments. Instead, I looked at Longer Timeframe (Daily and; optionally; Weekly) to decide my Trade Direction and used Real Time CUE Chart to execute the Day Trade in that pre-planned direction.
That is not the only approach I use for Day Trading. Sometimes, I look at multiple correlated instruments; using same Real Time Intraday Timeframe, and then choose the one that is likely to give me the Highest Probability of Success or Best Reward Risk Ratio or both.
For E-Mini Day Trade, I often use this correlation approach.
I will use two symbols. One is ES - E-Mini S&P 500 Future. And the other is NQ - E-Mini Nasdaq 100 Future. These two symbols are usually strongly correlated. Moving up and down together on an intraday time frame. But not necessarily with the same force. Some days ES is stronger. And some other days NQ is more powerful. For Day Trading in the Long direction, we chose the stronger of the pair. And for Shorting, we use the weaker of the pair.
Now, what is meant by "strong" and "weak" here? Is it the different percentage moves that we see in Real Time data feed? Obviously, that is one estimate of strength. However, from a Superior Profit Day Trader's perspective, that is not the optimal way to measure force and use it in a trading decision.
What works a lot better is to see the movement of the two symbols within a set of reference price levels or Pivots. The CUE Fine Tune Real Time template is ideal for that.
This CUE Fine Tune template is designed specifically for Day Trading. You can also use it for precision entry of Swing Trading.
Fine Tune template has automatically calculated dynamic pivot levels (horizontal dotted lines) as well as very smart auto-drawn-trendlines; Memory Lines as we call them. These provide the reference price levels to help us decide which symbol is stronger and which one is weaker.
CUE Fine Tune also has the very responsive (and thus; suitable for Day Trading) Stretch Release up/down arrow signal to decide quickly and unambiguously exactly when to enter a "reversal" trade; trade opposite to the immediately prevailing direction.
Let us put all that together in a real life case. This Day Trade opportunity came during regular E-Mini trading hours on 15th August 2016. I will use the 10-minute chart here. However, traders can use 5 Minute or 1 Minute interval too if they choose to do that. Personally, for Day Trading E-Mini Futures, I find 5 or 10 Minute interval provides the balance between being on the trade early. So I can capture a significant chunk of the move. But not too soon that I get whipsawed often.
Here are the charts of ES and NQ - side by side - using CUE Fine Tune template using 10 Minute interval.
The numbers below refers to the respective markings on the chart:
(1) I first assess which one of ES and NQ was stronger at Close on the day before. That is, at Close (4 PM EST) of the day on 14th Aug. ES had Closed somewhat below Day's High whereas NQ had Closed almost at Day's High. So, at Close, using the Day's High and Day's Close as reference levels, NQ was stronger on 14th Aug.
(2) Next day, on 15th August, both ES and NQ opened with Gap Up.
(3) Both ES and NQ went above Early Range High and became Overbought at that level; as indicated by Stretch signal (cyan and green dots on top of the Candle).
(4) Neither instrument could continue the rally from the Overbought Stretch condition. Instead, both became weak as seen by Stretch Release signal (down arrow on top of the Candle). Both symbols displayed three Stretch Release indicator three times before they fell.
Both symbols looked similar at this point on the chart. However, there were signs that ES was weaker than NQ. For example, ES had a Candle Flow color turning Bearish magenta before NQ. Also, on the third Stretch Release Candle, ES crossed below Early Range High. However, NQ remained above Early Range High pivot level.
Using the above analysis, I concluded that ES was weaker than NQ. Both at 14th Aug Close and also after 15th Aug Open.
And therefore decided that for a Short trade, ES would be a preferred candidate.
I will now explain the Short trade execution using the ES chart below using 10 Minute Interval and CUE Fine Tune template.
The numbers below refers to the respective markings on the chart:
(1) I took the Short trade on the third Stretch Release sign. ES crossed below Early Range High at the same time. And Candle Flow color turned Bearish magenta. These three signs together made the Short entry a High Probability Trade.
(2) I placed Stop Order immediately upon entering the trade at just above Day's High. This was a small risk amount relative to ES's usual daily move range. This Stop Level was never violated.
(3) After my entry, ES fell. And the trade Profit soon surpassed the Risk taken. I closed half position at this point.
(4) Immediately after booking partial profit, I moved Stop to Breakeven level. That is, to the Entry Price Level. Breakeven Stop was never hit.
(5) At day's Close (4 PM EST), I closed the remaining position.
Following are the salient points of this disciplined and profitable Day Trade using E-Mini Future.
A) I selected ES over NQ for a Short trade by observing the symbols' move within CUE Fine Tune pivot levels.
B) I patiently waited for both NQ and ES to turn Bearish. And executed the trade without hesitation when multiple signals were aligned.
C) I placed the Stop Order immediately upon trade entry to manage risk.
D) I booked partial profit as soon as Risk amount was covered; making it a Risk-Free Trade from then onward.
E) I closed the entire trade at the end of the day. I had planned it as a Day Trade. And closed it as a Day Trade.
This Day Trade was taken on E-Mini Future. However, the same technique of choosing one particular instrument from multiple correlated instruemnts for Day Trading by usign reference pivot levels of CUE Fine Tune template can be applied to other trading instruments like Stocks in similar industry, to Forex pairs etc.

( C – 3.5*ATR(14) ),
( C – 3.5*ATR(14) ));
Stop1:=If( PREV > H,
If(( L + 4*ATR(14) ) H,
If(( C + 3.5*ATR(14) ) <= PREV,
( C + 3.5*ATR(14) ),
( C + 3.5*ATR(14) ));

Rahul Mohindar Oscillator and RMO ATM is a invention of Rahul Mohindar of VIRATECH. After the very neatly obtained Rahul Mohindar Oscillator, i.e RMO variation (which used to be launched with MetaStock 10 in 2006), there have been a couple of requests from customers, for extra instruments and insights of Rahul’s work. This new add-on is an effective way to get you up to date along with his findings and likewise to take your diagnosis to the following stage.
The RMO ATM add-on targets at making prognosis much more easy and methodical. It comes pre constructed with clear, crisp and neatly built-in buy and sell methods which have been in a position to surviving one of the most most excessive market scenarios.
Within the Rahul Mohindar Oscillator setup this RMO ATM involves you bundled with the next 6 Warning signs

ATM : Breakout Catcher
The ATM : Breakout Catcher indicator solves the trend puzzle straight out. For ease of interpretation we counsel plotting it in histogram model.
Discover within the illustration above that the indicator oscillates between -1 and +1. That you can become aware of trend modifications appropriately without a lot of a lag impact the use of this indicator. +1 signifies Energy and this makes you trade on the lengthy aspect. Because the trend develops and will get more suitable and steady the indicator stays above +1 and on a regular basis creates a sequence of sure histogram ticks. Each sure uptick will have to no longer essentially be interpreted as a buying probability.
The indicator at zero would point out that the stock has retraced with regards to value / time from its current trend. The zero valuehence means that the stock has entered Impartial mode and does now not suggest a recent trade. Then again aggressive traders may just like to make use of this Impartial mode innovatively to place on trades with a smaller chance and are expecting a better reward.
-1 signifies weak point and implies trading on the brief aspect. Because the trend will get weaker and costs continues to say no you’re going to incessantly discover that the indicator stays persistently at -1 making a collection of poor histogram ticks. As soon as once more, each poor tick will have to no longer essentially be interpreted as shorting probability.
ATM Zone Detector (ZD) and ATM Zone Fill (ZF)
As soon as of the best fears of an lively trader is the concern of getting caught in a trade which ends bad as a result of
sideways or subdued value and quantity motion. It’s of serious significance that we observe and trade indicators which might be backed with each value and quantity motion.
In the Rahul Mohindar Oscillator setup ATM Zone Detector (ATM ZD) and ATM Zone Fill (ATM ZF) do exactly this and mark out the Zone we are trading in. We recommend you first plot ATM Zone Fill (ZF) in histogram style and then overlay the ATM Zone Detector (ZD) on top of it (Merge with scale if prompted). An easy way to view this is to apply the ATM Breakout Catcher template.
In the Rahul Mohindar Oscillator setup ATM ZD and ZF clearly classifies a chart into 3 defined zones…. Dormant Zone: When both ATM ZD & ATM ZF indicators show a value 0. We should avoid taking fresh breakout type trades in this zone.
Active Zone: When at least the ATM ZD shows a positive value (ATM ZF may not). Breakout signals should yield positive results in such cases.
Hyperactive Zone: A zone where both, ATM ZD and ATM ZF are positive. This shows that the chart is backed with both good volumes and above average price volatility. A fresh trade / signal in this zone can be considered well confirmed and has a good potential in terms of delivering a profitable move.
Turtle trading is a most famous trading system; I wrote a series of articles to provide the elemental principles of turtle trading system. In this article, I will provide you with just a few examples on the best way to practice the turtle methods in your trading through utilizing MetaStock.
One of the most as a rule used tools for MetaStock is The Explorer, with this tool traders can clear out securities that don’t healthy any given standards. The factors can be defined through writing MetaStock system as the next example.
According to the turtle buying and selling process, the shorter term entry process centered on a 20-days breakout. Merchants can effortlessly write a turtle trading system metastock formula for every day charts as follow.
H > Ref(HHV(H, 20), -1) OR L < Ref(LLV(L, 20), -1);
H = Today’s high; L = Today’s low HHV(H, 20) = Highest value that the high price (H) has reached in the previous 20 days. LLV(L, 20) = Lowest value that the low price (L) has reached in the previous 20 days. Ref(HHV(H, 20), -1) = The highest high price in the last 20 days refer to last day. Ref(LLV(L, 20), -1) = The lowest low price in the last 20 days refer to last day.
If merchants desire a record of securities that fit the turtle exit procedure, 10-days low for lengthy positions and 10-days high for short positions. The formulation will probably be as comply with.
L < Ref(LLV(L, 10), -1) OR H > Ref(HHV(H, 10), -1);
These are examples of the best way to apply buying and selling methods by utilizing turtle trading system metastock formula. Besides The Explorer, traders may write the formula in other instruments corresponding to expert advisor or Indicator Builder as well.
