About the Super MACD indicator

The Super MACD indicator is based on the normal MACD indicator.  The 2 lines are equal to the red MACD signal line and the border of the MACD histogram of the original MACD indicator. The Super MACD has additionally to these 2 lines a histogram which shows the price difference between the 2 lines.

Strategy

With this modified MACD you are able to recognize faster a trend change. Using the default
MACD you would sell if the red signal line breaks out of the gray Histogram (1). With the Super MACD you sell if the colored histogram is above the zero line and its color changes to red (2).

Input parameters

  • Fast EMA averaging period
  • Slow EMA averaging period
  • Signal line averaging period
  • Applied price
  • Timeframe

Demo version

The demo version works only in the strategy tester.

  1. When you decide to include alerts, would be great if when the Colour of the lines change (for example from blue to red or red to blue) an alert is triggered.

    Hope you can add alerts soon. It’s a really great indicator

  2. Please advice when you will be adding alerts to this indicator?
    Will you add separate alert settings for macd line crossing signal line and crossing zero line?

    1. I do not know when it will be added. Yes I will probably add many different alert settings.

  3. I forgot a question. It has signs of notification option? If so how do I set up?

  4. It works on any pair? Do you have any that it is more accurate? And what would be the best periods for your signs?

    1. Yes it works on any symbol and any timeframe. Unfortunately I do not have statistics about where is works best.

  5. When I paste indicator on to the chart, nothing happens. I am using a demo account. I also tried through strategy tester.

    What should I do Yannick.

    1. Have you installed the indicator corretly in the MQL4/indicators folder?
      Do you see errors on the journal?

  6. I intend purchasing Super MACD and Coloured Stochastic indicators. I was unable to download the free ones because I do not have the right application, that is .ex4 folder. If I buy them will you help me with the folder?

    I should make purchase next Friday morning.
    Also what is your turnaround time for responding to querries and requests for help? This will help me align my expectations in dealing with you Yannick.

    Regards

    1. You have to copy the files into the MQL4/indicators folder. Normally I am available from Mondey to Wednesday per mail.

  7. hi,
    if I buy it, you will provide the .ex4 or the source file?
    I will need the source file as I will need to build up alerting functions.
    Is it similar the Ninjatrader MACDavg?

    1. You will only receive the .ex4 file.
      It is not necessary, I will add alerting functions soon.
      It looks similar, but I don’t know if it is the same.

    1. Just open a account with the broker of your choice and download and install the Super MACD indicator.

  8. Hi, Can I use Super MACD signal conditions in conjunction with my ExpertAdvisor/Automatic trading?

    1. Yes, you can easily program an EA based on this indicator. I will also include the signals of the Super MACD indicator in my MACD EA Pro in the next weeks.

      1. I am absolutely looking forward to the update of the MACD EA Pro! – 🙂 – Can’t await it to be released and then to compare back- and forward-tests of the usual MACD signals and the signals of the Super MACD! The picture you posted to point out the difference up there is promising!
