SMI Indices Technical Analysis and SMI MT5 Stock Indexes Indicator

SMI MT5 Indices Indicator



Construction of SMI

This MetaTrader 5 stock indices indicator is calculated by comparing the stock indexes price relative to the average of an n number of periods.


Then instead of plotting these values directly, smoothing using an Exponential Moving Average is applied and then the values drawn to form the SMI.


When the closing stock indexes price is greater than the average of the range, the SMI will move up.

When the closing stock indexes price is less than the average of the range, the SMI will move down.


This oscillator MT5 stock indices indicator ranges between the values of +100 and -100, this MetaTrader 5 stock indices indicator is also less prone to whipsaws compared to the stochastic oscillator.
