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.


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).

    Hi Yannick
    Would you be able to add an alert when the macd lines cross?
    It would really help my trading.

    1. Yannick says:

      This is possible, but would require a custom modification.

  2. Andrew says:

    Hi Yannick

    My license says that it has expired. I bought the full version some time ago

    Please advice. Thanks

    1. Yannick says:

      Please login to your account and download the new version from there.

    1. Yannick says:

      Yes, you can change all these parameters.

  4. Eddy says:

    Would be nice if you can add a little spot each time the 2 EMAs crosses

    1. Yannick says:

      I take note of this.

  5. Andrew says:

    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

    1. Yannick says:

      Ok 🙂

  6. Andrew says:

    Hi Yannick

    Does the Indicator repaint?

    1. Yannick says:

      No, he does not.

  7. Andrew says:

    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. Yannick says:

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

  8. Henrique Cavalcante says:

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

    1. Yannick says:

      No, he does not send any notifications yet.

  9. Henrique Cavalcante says:

    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. Yannick says:

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

  10. Carlos says:

    Can this indicator open/close trades?

    1. Yannick says:

      No, please use the MACD EA instead.

  11. Motsusi Elias Boikanyo says:

    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. Yannick says:

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

  12. Motsusi Elias Boikanyo says:

    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.


    1. Yannick says:

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

  13. Motsusi Elias Boikanyo says:

    Does the Super MACD send alerts?

    1. Yannick says:

      Not yet.

  14. Syafizal Fahmi says:

    how i want to use it…after download file?

    1. Yannick says:

      Use the manual How to install an EA but instead if the Experts folder, you put it in the Indicators folder. Note that the demo only works in the strategy tester.

  15. khalid elrafie says:

    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. Yannick says:

      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.

  16. Ashok Bhoda says:

    please tell me how strategy tester works i want to test it. how it is working

    1. Yannick says:

      Basically it is like testing an EA. In the new Strategy Tester you have the option to choose “Indicator”. Follow the same steps as testing an EA, but choose the Super MACD indicator instead.

  17. Frank Marty says:

    Hello, it no function in my demo account. why?

    1. Yannick says:

      The Demo version works only in the Stratey Tester.

  18. Chen Jing Lin says:

    I would like to have demo account

    1. Yannick says:

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

  19. Perry Cabuntocan says:

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

    1. Yannick says:

      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. quantumfx says:

        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!
