Squeeze Momentum Indicator [LazyBear]

Fixed a typo in the code where BB multiplier was stuck at 1.5. Thanks @ucsgears for bringing it to my notice.

Updated source:

Use the updated source instead of the what TV shows below.

This is a derivative of John Carter's "TTM Squeeze" volatility indicator, as discussed in his book "Mastering the Trade" (chapter 11).

Black crosses on the midline show that the market just entered a squeeze ( Bollinger Bands are with in Keltner Channel). This signifies low volatility , market preparing itself for an explosive move (up or down). Gray crosses signify "Squeeze release".

Mr.Carter suggests waiting till the first gray after a black cross, and taking a position in the direction of the momentum (for ex., if momentum value is above zero, go long). Exit the position when the momentum changes (increase or decrease --- signified by a color change). My (limited) experience with this shows, an additional indicator like ADX / WaveTrend, is needed to not miss good entry points. Also, Mr.Carter uses simple momentum indicator , while I have used a different method (linreg based) to plot the histogram.

@bestmvpatel, Yeah, it seems to me that the strategy works best entering on dark green and exiting on dark red (for shorting) and viceversa (for longing).

@bestmvpatel, Bạn có để ý tới dấu +( dấu thập tự giá) chỉ báo được cấu tạo có thêm cả bolingerband. nó được thể hiện + màu đen là sự co bóp của bb, + xám là sự bành trướng trong bolinger band. hãy để ý tới nó nữa kết hợp với sự thay đổi từ xanh nhạt sang xanh đậm và đỏ nhạt sang đỏ đậm.
