Accelerator/Decelerator Indicator

The Accelerator/Decelerator Technical Indicator (AC) measures acceleration and deceleration of the current driving force. This indicator will change direction before any changes in the driving force, which, in its turn, will change its direction before the price. The Acceleration/Deceleration is an early warning signal.

  2. Choose Accelerator/Decelerator and click Add to add the study to the Applied Studies group.
