McClellan Summation Index Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

The McClellan Summation Index Metatrader 5 custom indicator is built on the McClellan Oscillator that is in turn based on the values of the McClellan’s indicator.

RANA displays the values of McClellan_Oscillator, depending on the values of the preceding day.

The indicator has three important input parameters:

Base currency – defines the base currency as a symbol within the market watch for calculating the RANA.

Fast MA period – defines the fast moving period (set at a default value of 19);

Slow MA period – defines the slow moving average period (set at a default value 19);

The calculations for the McClellan_Summation_Index is as follows:

McClellan Summation Index = McClellan Oscillator + McClellan Summation Index of the prior day


McClellan Oscillator = (MA(RANA(19)) – MA(RANA(39))) * (Fast MA period + Slow MA period)

MA(RANA(19)) – 19-day MA based on RANA;

MA(RANA(39)) – 39-day MA based on RANA.

RANA = (Up – Dn)/(Up + Dn)

Up – number of bullish candlesticks on all symbols;

Dn – number of bearish candlesticks for all symbols.

When launching the indicator for the first time or switching timeframe, the indicator requires some time to load the necessary data for the designated symbol.

The RANA indicator is not needed for the operation – the indicator carries out the computation independently.
