The Fractal AMA is short for the fractal adaptive Moving Average, a Metatrader 5 custom forex tool that was developed by John Ehlers.
The RPeriod is one of the indicator’s very important input parameter that defines length, and is forcibly equal to an even number.
If this variable gets an odd number, it will be decreased to an even number.
One of the easiest use of this indicator is the crossover of Fractal AMA MT5 forex indicator orange line and its purple line.
Other inputs parameters asides the RPeriod that are available on the fractalama_mbk Metatrader 5 custom indicator includes:
- Multiplier – defines the step distance of the moving averages
- Signal_Multiplier – defines the signal step distance of the moving averages
- Horizontal shift of the indicator in bars – defines the horizontal distance between the moving averages in bars
