2 MA Candlesticks

The 2MA Candlesticks is an indicator that paints the candlesticks on the chart depending on the intersection between two given moving averages (exponential, simple etc) that can be defined by the trader. In the example below, we've attached to the chart two moving averages that we use to determine the price movements. These are the 30 EMA and the 55 EMA.
They can be used in a multitude of ways, however they do take space on the chart and the candlesticks look the same. Many traders find the often change in color distracting. To avoid this issue, we've attached the 2MA Candlesticks indicator on the chart and removed the two moving averages. Of course, the settings for the 2MA Candlesticks indicator are the same as the 2 moving averages (30 ema and 55 ema).
Notice how the chart became much clear and the price action way more obvious. We got rid not only of the 2 MA occupying visual space, but also the original candlesticks colors.

Average True Range Candles

The Average True Range (ATR) indicator for MetaTrader will paint the candles on the chart according to the ATR indicator. The settings for the ATR indicator candles can be set by the trader. In the example below, the ATR indicator has the values:
ATR Period 10Multiplier 2 The trader can also set the ATR candles color and, if choosing color 'none' for the ATR line indicator, to hide it (as seen above).
The ATR Candles indicator can be used to understand how the price moves and show the swings that the price forms. With the correct settings for the current chart and time frame, it can be successfully used to enter/exit trades based on the color as it can show exactly when the price reverses.

Background Candles (multi time frames)

The RobotFX Background Candles MT4 indicator can draw (in the background) the candles formed on any higher time frame, right behind the actual frame candles on the current timeframe. In the chart below one could trade on D1 (the background candles drawn by the indicator) and spot the right entry on the actual frame candles, H1.
This MetaTrader indicator eliminates the need for many other indicators (daily open, daily high/low etc) and it is useful because it allows the forex trader to spot the price action and the trend formed on the higher time frames. It is especially useful for those trading with the trend and/or traders trading daily open (etc).
Sometimes it is necessary to check the higher time frames in order to establish the trend direction, or to switch to the lower time frames to enter a trade on the right moment. You can download this RobotFX MT4 indicator for free from here.

Heiken Ashi Expert Advisor

The RobotFX Heiken Ashi expert advisor is an all-in-one trading solution for traders trading with the trend, so we can safely say that the Heiken Ashi expert advisor is a trend trader. It can detect the trend - if the trader chooses so - and trade accordingly, meaning that the EA will only buy if the trend is up and/or only sell if the trend is down. The trend itself is decided by the Heiken Ashi color on the higher or current timeframes. It should be noted however that the trend detector can also be disabled and that the Heiken Ashi EA can be allowed to trade by simply following the Heiken Ashi signals on the current timeframe.
