Moving Average Zones Indicator

This is an experimental indicator I made for trend-continuation strategy development.

I have not begun testing on this indicator yet but the moving average zones can be used as zones of value for entering in the direction of a strong trend.

How It Works

The green zone is the price between the 50 EMA and the 50 MA.

The orange zone is the price between the 100 EMA and the 100 MA.

The red zone is the price between the 200 EMA and the 200 MA.

Settings

Show Zone 1?
If disabled then the zone between the 50EMA and the 50MA will not be drawn.

Show Zone 2?
If disabled then the zone between the 100EMA and the 100MA will not be drawn.

Show Zone 3?
If disabled then the zone between the 200EMA and the 200MA will not be drawn.

Zone 1 Period:
This sets the first zone’s moving average period.

Zone 2 Period:
This sets the second zone’s moving average period.

Zone 3 Period:
This sets the third zone’s moving average period.
