Kurtosis Oscillator Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Kurtosis Oscillator Metatrader 4 forex indicator is a tool for gauging market sentiment.

The indicator is designed to act as an oscillator, and allows traders properly gauge price trends.

The indicator appears as a single red line that oscillates above and below the zero signal level.

The indicator is constructed from three different parts i.e. the Kurtosis, Fast Kurtosis (FK), and Fast/Slow Kurtosis (FSK).

The Kurtosis Oscillator shows the average of the difference of a fast moving average set at a default periods of 3, smoothed by an exponential moving average with a default periods value of 66, and the overall result is again averaged by another simple moving average with a default periods set at 3.

It’s highly recommended to use the indicator together with a trend following indicator.

For instance, the 100 exponential moving average would fit.

Trade in the direction of the overall trend and avoid trading against the trend.
