MA Slope [EMA Magic]

█ Overview:
The MA Slope calculates the slope based on a given moving average.
The Moving Average Slope indicator allows you to identify the direction and the strength of a trend.
It calculates the rate of change in percentage based on the user-defined moving average.

█ Calculation: This indicator calculates the slope based on the changes of moving average and normalizes it with Average True Range(ATR).
The default value of ATR is 7.I recommend not changing it unless you know exactly what are you doing.

█ Input Settings:
The settings are divided into three sections:
  • The first section is for time frame adjustments. Modify it separately from the chart, Allows you to use moving averages from different time frames.
  • In the second section, you can configure the base calculation,including Moving Average and Average True Range(ATR) settings.
  • In the third section, you can detect breakout and sudden change signals, which are highlighted in the background of the indicator.
    Note that When you change the breakout limit value, it also affects the band limit indicator on your chart.
    To avoid signal confusion, use only one at a time.
    Here is the example the breakout signals:
█ Usage:
  • When the slope is increasing, it indicates an uptrend.
  • When the slope is decreasing, it indicates a downtrend.
  • When the slope is moving around zero and choppy, it indicates no specific trend or price is in a range zone.
    Uptrend and Range Zone example:
    Downtrend example:

  • Slope peaks on extreme levels can signal a potential trend reversal point.
  • Breakout of the upper or lower bands can be translated into a trading signal.Indicating that price will probably continue to move in the direction of the breakout.
  • Favor long setups when the slope is increasing or it is positive and favor short setups when the slope is decreasing or it is negative.
Fits with any moving average you use, e.g., EMA, WMA, MA Ribbon, and more.

Alerts are available for both signal conditions.
