The KVO Oscillator MT4 forex indicator is based on the MACD indicator but with a smart twist.
It uses different settings for the Fast EMA, Slow EMA and Signal EMA (34, 55, 13).
KVO displays histogram price bars together with a red signal line.
It creates a short-term trend following forex system that is useful for both scalping and day trading purposes.
Gray KVO histogram bars aligned above the zero level are said to be bullish.
Conversely, gray KVO histogram bars aligned below the zero level are said to be bearish.
The red signal line fluctuates above and below the zero line.
The default KVO settings can be changed directly from the indicator’s inputs tab. Feel free to experiment with different settings.
