The SwingDNA indicator is used to identify swing points that correspond to a trader’s short and long term MVA (Moving Average).  The indicator plots swing alerts and swing cautions on the swing candlestick; the user then draws horizontal lines on the open and close price of that candle.  Any time the MVA (Moving Average) crosses the horizontal lines, a trading opportunity may exist.


The following are inputs available in the application:

  • Short EMA – The number of periods to calculate the short EMA
  • Long EMA – The number of periods to calculate the long EMA
  • Signal line – The number of periods to calculate the signal line
  • MACD Shift – The number of periods to shift the secondary MACD line to the left
  • Label Color – The color of the labels
