Indicator Description

CCI Convergence Divergence indicator compares two MA lines calculated on the CCI value and the market price.

We have Divergence when both MA are moving in opposite directions:
- CCI MA rises and Market MA falls; or
- CCI MA falls and Market MA rises.

We have Convergence when both MA are moving in equal direction:
- CCI MA rises and Market MA rises; or
- CCI MA falls and Market MA falls.

This indicator gives equal signals for both long and short positions. For example, if there is a Convergence, it allows both opening long and short positions. It means that we can use this indicator for an additional filter. It cannot determine the position direction alone.

The indicator can be placed in Opening Logic Condition slot and in Closing Logic Condition.
