Hull Moving Average Metatrader 4 Forex Signal Indicator

The Hull Moving Average signals indicator for Metatrader 4 consists of a dual colored buy/sell signal line and works for any currency pair and time frame.

As the name implies, the indicator is based on the popular Hull Moving Average (HMA).

When loaded onto MT4, a dual colored line appears on the activity chart.

The colored HMA line shows you the trend, either buy or sell.

  • A green HMA signal line represents a buy signal.
  • A red HMA signal line represents a sell signal.

The HMA indicator could be used as a stand-alone trading tool but I prefer to mix it up with other technical indicators.

Feel free to experiment with the different indicator’s inputs settings to suit your needs and preferences.
