MAD stands for Moving Average Delta, it calculates the difference between moving average and price. The curve shows the difference in Pips.
By calculating the delta between two points we can see more small changes in the direction of the moving average curve which are normally hard to see. You can see the MAD curve as look through the microscope at a curve. It may help predicting a trend change before it happens, the sample shows a beginning trend change from long to short.
If the MAD curve is bigger than 0, the moving average is above the price
If the MAD curve is smaller than 0, the moving average is below the price
Before a trend change, the moving average gets flatter, the MAD curve points to towards the zero
We can see what is the maximum rising/falling of the difference and predict an upcomming trend change
