TradeBuilder Core 2019 Edition adds Accelerator Oscillator to its collection of technical analysis tools, increasing the total number of compoundable indicators to 16. Accelerator tracks acceleration (positive and negative) of price action, providing low-lag filtering options to trend-following and scalping strategies.

New Integrated Indicator: Accelerator Oscillator

As indicative by its name Accelerator Oscillator tracks bidirectional acceleration of price action, that is, acceleration of long and short interest in a security. It is oftentimes referred to as a leading indicator because the oscillator curve has a tendency to project price direction, since acceleration is the first rate of change to indicate loss of momentum. Leading indicators have minimum smoothing applied to them and should ideally be used as market filters - that is, in combination with non-filtering indicators (such as Moving Average Crosses, Bollinger Bands, RSI, etc.).

On its own, Accelerator provides a straightforward 0-level crossover strategy - buy signal issued when oscillator crosses the 0 mark from below (effectively referred to as positive market driving force). sell signal issued when oscillator crosses the 0 mark from above (effectively referred to as negative market driving force).

The following Pound/Dollar (GBP/USD) 30-minute screenshot shows TradeBuilder Core generating signals based solely on Accelerator oscillator. As expected, there are a fair amount of them since acceleration is a sensitive rate of change.

Here is the same Pound/Dollar (GBP/USD) 30-minute chart but this time we're using Accelerator as a filter within a broader trend-following strategy based on a Double Moving Average Cross.

Other Additions

The 2019 Edition of TradeBuilder Core was naively compiled in the latest Metaterader 4, build 1170 environment ensuring maximum compatibility with current and future versions of the platform as well as Windows 10. Core's manual has been updated (section 4.4.17 in particular) and now covers all of the new features of the 2019 Edition. Accelerator oscillator integrated indicator is also available in TradeBuilder Classic. If you're looking for a TradeStation or MultiCharts version of TradeBuilder, see the Ultimate Edition.

Is there an Expert Advisor (EA)?

TradeBuilder Core is an indicator (not an EA) that issues real-time signals on your chart and to your email address as well as smartphone (iOS, Android). You may have noticed that our other indicators such as MarketScalper PRO, TrendSuite, and TradeBuilder Classic now include optional Expert Advisor add-ons for auto-trading, back-testing, and optimizing strategies based on their algorithm. So why is there no EA for TradeBuilder Core? The answer is in its positioning. TradeBuilder Core is our lowest-priced, entry-level trading framework and we feel that offering an EA add-on that costs as much as the indicator itself would take away from its position as a value product. If you still need an EA for a TradeBuilder Core strategy then we suggest you consider upgrading to TradeBuilder - Classic Edition. Classic version comes with 3 times as many integrated indicators as Core and includes an optional EA add-on. For a limited time, we are offering all Core clients an upgrade to Classic (with a lifetime upgrade license) plus the Classic EA for $500 (normally the EA alone is $450). Contact us if interested.
