FRAMA Indicator Explanation

FRAMA Indicator explanation

The FRAMA uses a 10-period custom moving average for smoothing the price volatility and identifying the short-term trend status. However, using FRAMA alone may create frequent trading leads and cause unnecessary losses. For this reason, the developer of the indicator added a 50 MA alongside the main signal line for filtering the false signals.

When FRAMA is above 50 MA, we consider it a buy signal with a bullish trend confirmation. Conversely, following the bearish trend reversal, the opposite crossover will indicate a selling opportunity. Moreover, we’ll use the 50 MA level for determining the stop-loss zones.
