MA - Price
Crossover & Proximity Alert

With Email and Push Notifications

MetaTrader 4



The FX AlgoTrader MA Price Crossover / Proximity alert indicator provides traders who monitor moving averages with two types of alert option which are Price/Moving Average Crossover Alerts and also Price/Moving Average Proximity alerts.

Once the trader has defined the moving average period they wish to monitor the system will constantly monitor price action and it's relationship with the moving average. If proximity alerts are enabled, as soon as the price action comes within a trader specified threshold (specified in pips) around the moving average - an alert will be triggered. If crossover alerts are also enabled the trader will receive alerts when the price has crossover over the moving average.

Furthermore, the trader can control the 'crossover mode' of the price / moving average crossover. The system has two modes which are 'Touch' and 'Printed'. A 'touch' based crossover is the price momentarily crosses the moving average and a 'printed' crossover is where the price has crossed the moving average and the bar/candle has closed thus creating a physically printed price moving average crossover.

How do traders use the Price and Moving Relationship?

A lot of traders monitor the relationship between price and the 200 period SMA/EMA (simple moving average/exponential moving average) on longer terms charts. Traders consider the market to have a bullish (long) bias when price action is above the 200 period MA and a bearish bias when price action is below the 200 period MA.

The calculation method which traders use is personal preference but EMAs will track price action more closely and therefore provide a slightly earlier signal than moving averages calculated using the SMA method.

If traders use the FX AlgoTrader proximity alert function within this tool they can also get advanced warning of a potential MA cross or rejection as price action comes within a specified range of a defined moving average. In many cases moving averages can act as either support or resistance so traders can benefit from being alerted when price is close to a critical level. A price proximity alert allows the trader to analyse his/her options and to develop a trading plan depending on how price action behaves when the moving avergae is actually touched.
