MA Howfar, as its name indicates, measures how far the market is from a moving average you specify. The “howfar” information is expressed in ticks (easy to read) and plotted as a bar graph in a separate panel for you to easily visualize. Positive howfar means the market is above the moving average, and negative howfar means the market is below the moving average. Additionally, MA Howfar adds 2 ATR-based thresholds: the upper is for positive howfar and the lower is for negative howfar. When the howfar number meets the upper threshold, the trend switches to uptrend; when the howfar number meets the lower threshold, the trend switches to downtrend.
A wonderful feature of this indicator is trend slowdown detection, based on the number of bars for slowdown scan you define. Its default is 3, which means: if there are 3 consecutive positive decreasing bars, the uptrend experiences a slowdown; if there are 3 consecutive negative decreasing bars, the downtrend experiences a slowdown. Slowdowns are marked by dot symbols ( ).
