Introduction to the SSD with Histogram Indicator
The SSD With Histogram is a custom forex indicator for Metatrader 5 (MT5) that shows a slow stochastic line, a signal line, and a histogram that reflects the difference between the slow line and the signal line. The indicator and its elements are displayed in a separate window just below your main trading chart.
The slow stochastic line is shown as the light sea green line within the indicator window, while the brown colored line represents the signal line. The histogram is made of red and blue bars that take negative or positive values (above or below 0 level).
These are the calculations that determine the core of SSD_With_Histogram MT5 forex indicator:
K = Stochastic D – 50.0
D = SMA(K, %D Period)
Histogram = K – D
The indicator performs the computation as needed and it’s therefore needless to bother ourselves about the different formula.
