CCI Dots Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The CCI Dots Metatrader 5 forex indicator is designed in a way that adds buy and sell signal pointers to the activity chart, at the instance where the CCI indicator crosses its zero line.

If the CCI intersects the zero line upwards, a blue dot is attached below the price bars, if the CCI intersects the zero line downward, a red dot is attached above the price bars.

There are three input parameters that are offered on the CCI_Dots MT5 custom indicator:

  • CCI period – defines the CCI indicator period calculation;
  • CCI applied price – defines the price used for CCI calculation;
  • MA period – defines the period of the moving average for the calculation of the distance from the candlestick’s High or Low to inserting signal pointers.
