The Vidya zone Metatrader 5 Forex indicator uses three prices for its calculation: high, low and median.
Using the default Vidya will mean having a lot of errors due to varying momentum for different prices at same bars.
This problem can be resolved following the introduction of a modified Vidya calculation that halts the error found in the earlier version, which yields a Vidya zone that is error free and yields logical result.
The main crux of the Vidya zone is its ability to spot breakout (which mean that when price falls within the zone, trading is said to be in a pause, or when price breaks out, it is said to be in a warning zone, and thus increases the likelihood of entering a trade).
The middle line that was added to the current Vidya zone MT5 Forex indicator changes colors in relation to the two outer colors.
