DEROSC Derivative Oscillator Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

    DEROSC is short for Derivative Oscillator, and it is a brainchild of Constance Brown.

    The indicator was brought to limelight when it got published in her book “Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional.”

    The DEROSC Metatrader 5 custom forex indicator is a combination of two EMAs with default parameters of 5 and 3, which are used to produce a double exponentially smoothed RSI MT5 indicator.

    The default period 9 represents the signal line that is formed by the simple smoothing of the ensuing twice exponentially smoother RSI (2ERSI), while the derived histogram is a product of the difference between the 2ERSI and signal line.

    Visually, the indicator is quite easy to interpret.

    Incorporate DEROSC in your scalping, day trading and swing trading forex systems and strategies!
