The CCI Variation Metatrader 5 forex indicator is a Commodity Channel Index oscillator that was originally introduced by Donald Lambert in 1980.
This version makes use of a colored line that changes to medium sea green upon breaking above the zero signal level (bull trend), and to orange red once the line breaks below the zero signal level (bear trend).
Regardless of whether an ATR or standard deviation is used for the calculation, the crosses of the zero line will stay exactly the same as with the traditional CCI.
However, the slope and levels of the CCI variation indicator are not the same as those of the standard CCI indicator.
