Exp_AbsolutelyNoLagLwma_X2 – expert for MetaTrader 5

Trend-following trading system Exp_AbsolutelyNoLagLwma_X2 is based on the signals of two indicators AbsolutelyNoLagLwma. The first indicator determines the direction of the slow trend based on the line color. The second indicator determines the moment for opening a trade, when the line color changes. The signal is formed when a bar is closing if two conditions are met:

  1. Signals of the fast and slow trend match;
  2. Direction of the fast trend has changed.
