RAVI Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The RAVI Metatrader 4 forex indicator is made up of two moving averages calculated in percentages.

The author of this amazing indicator is T. Chand.

He recommends the use of plus/minus 0.3 percent or plus/minus 0.1% in relation to the market but we are implementing the former.

The continuation in the rise of the RAVI indicator histogram depicts a continuing trend while a descending trend is shown when the RAVI histogram continues to decline.

The trend is assumed to come to an end as soon as the RAVI indicator begins to turn back to the zero signal level.

The trend is said to be renewed when the histogram turns back again without breaking the zero signal level (either upwards or downwards).
