StepMA is a very powerful underground moving average, now enhanced by ninZa.co.
StepMA uses a rather special algorithm to create a moving average that slopes when the market trends and becomes FLAT when the market is sideways or retraces. This characteristic makes the plot move up/down in steps, hence the name.
ninZa.co improved this indicator by rounding the moving average to the nearest tick size; adding graphical enhancements; adding alerts and markers; fixing & strengthening the codes; making parameters easier to understand & tweak.
Especially, we added an option to let traders select any of 10 popular MA types as the base to calculate StepMA, which is not available in the original version.
In this indicator, ninZaATR is used (instead of regular ATR) for better performance. For your information, ninZaATR is ninZa.co's special ATR version that helps improve indicator performance significantly on intraday charts. It is also a standalone FREE indicator for ninZaFamily → https://ninza.co/product/ninzaatr.
