ZigZag Average

v10.3
ZigZag Average

The basic algorithm for this indicator is Zig Zag indicator. Each time a new peak or trough is found, the averaged value are inverted:

  • if last ZigZag point is a peak: the moving average is calculated with Highs
  • if last ZigZag point is a trough: the moving average is calculated with Lows

This indicator was coded by a request in the English indicators forum.

    Hi Forexchekup! on which instruments do you use it?

  3. Glen Marquis • 05/30/2018 #

    Nice. I like this, are the graphics as pretty when used with market entries?

    • Nicolas • 05/30/2018 #

      Because of its natural behavior, the zigzag makes the indicator more pretty in the past as it is in real time.. Using another kind of peaks and troughs detection should make it more accurate and valuable for trading.

    I’m trying to make a strategy based on EMA crosses over the ZigZag Average. Is there a way to generate these signals and copy them onto “myIndicator2” and simply print the signals (for example: +1; -1) ? If this is possible, maybe the strategy can be built with myIndicator2, then overcoming the ZigZag issue with auto trading. Any thoughts?

    • Nicolas • 05/30/2018 #

      Yes, this could be easily programmed with the assisted creation tool.
