AMA Bands Forex Indicator (MT4)

    The AMA Bands Forex indicator was built for Metatrader 4  and follows the trend with the help of a colored arrow bands system.

    It looks a bit similar to the Bollinger Bands indicator but this indicator uses the AMA formula.

    Key Points:

    • A blue colored AMA arrow represents a buy signal.
    • A red colored AMA arrow represents a sell signal.

    Overall, the indicator works very well in a trending environment.

    The indicator works on a wide range of trading instruments (Forex, CFD stocks, Indices, Cryptocurrencies, Commodities,..).
