TradeFab’s Filled Moving Average Trend Indicator uses the built-in Moving Average indicators to draw a fast and slow MA, and colors/fills the area between fast and slow band according to the trend. The Fill-Color and Fill-Opacity can be configured in the Properties dialog; the default for visualizing an uptrend is green and red for a downtrend.
The following MAs are supported: EMA, DEMA, HMA, SMA, TEMA, TMA, WMA.
After the checkout you will receive an email with a download link.
