MAMA Exponential Moving Average Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The MAMA Exponential Moving Average Metatrader 5 forex indicator is a set of moving average lines wrapped around price bars.

The indicator is fundamentally based on the exponential moving average algorithm and deployed to a currency pair’s current volatility.

The two lines of the MAMA forex indicator are essentially two averages – the fast MAMA (lime line) and slow FAMA (red line).

Market entries and exits are determined by the crossover of these averages.
