The Ultimate MA Metatrader 4 forex indicator is a moving average that is built on the Ultimate Oscillator.
The indicator successfully calculates the weighted average of three moving averages i.e. Simple, Exponential or Linear Weighted.
The three moving averages are highly adjustable, as such the Ultimate MA indicator is able to spot trend better than the single moving average.
Interestingly, the Ultimate MA indicator can also be used as a gauge to filter entry/exit points in the market.
Instead of deploying two/three SMAs or EMAs that can invariably result in chart window cluster, the Ultimate MA indicator offers a good alternative.
