Edgar Kraut proposed this simple colored volume bars strategy for swing trading.
This is how the colors are determined:
- If today’s closing price and volume are greater than 'n' days ago, color today’s volume bar green.
- If today’s closing price is greater than 'n' days ago but volume is not, color today’s volume bar blue.
- Similarly, if today’s closing...

Another one from Ehlers.
Ehlers likes the idea behind StochRSI so much, he dedicated a full chapter in his book (linked below) on how stoch works with his "superlative" (his words, not mine) indicators. This is stoch of his CG oscillator.
Standard stochastic oscillator uses fixed period for calculations and does not adjust to the constantly changing market...
Smoothing methods have lag, and since MACD makes use of moving averages, it usually lags behind price. You cannot eliminate lag completely, but one way of working around this is by adding a component of the price/MA difference back to MA. This technique is called Zero-lag (well, almost). "MACD Leader" makes use of this to form a leading signal to MACD.
Introduced by M.H.Pee, Trend Trigger Factor is designed to keep the trader trading with the trend.
System rules according to the developer:
* If the 15-day TTF is above 100 (indicating an uptrend), you will want to be in long positions.
* If the 15-day TTF is below -100, you will want to be short.
* If it is between -100 and 100, you should remain with the...

Optimized for long-term trading, HACOLT shows three levels: -1, 0 and 1. These levels suggest "an open short position",...

According to Elder, "The Impulse System encourages you to enter a trade cautiously but exit fast, by identifying inflection points where a trend speeds up or slows down. This is the professional approach to trading, the total opposite of the amateur's style. Beginners jump into trades without thinking too much and take forever to get out, hoping and waiting for...

The Two Versions of this Indicator I learned from Two Famous and Highly Successful Traders. This Indicator shows With No Lag Clear Up and Down Trends in Market by Documenting Clearly If Bulls or Bears are in Control. The Version In SubChart 1 Shows Consecutive Closes if the Current Close is Greater than of Less than the Midpoint of the Previous Bar (Why Midpoint...
Impulse MACD is a modified MACD, formed by filtering out the values in a MA range (region between MAs of high and low), thereby reducing whipsaw typical in a sideways market. This is usually plotted as histogram. This also plots the traditional histogram (MACD - Signal), to help in finding entries/exits.
Use this like a traditional MACD (Zero line crossing or...
Custom Pivots Indicator - Plots Yearly, Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, and Daily Levels.
I created this indicator because when you have multiple Pivots on one chart (For Example The Monthly, Weekly, And Daily Pivots), the only way to know exactly what pivot level your looking at is to color ALL S1 Pivots the same color, but create the plot types to look different. ...
The Intraday Momentum Index (IMI), developed by Tushar Chande, is a cross-breed between RSI and candlestick analysis. IMI determines the candle type that dominated the recent price action, using that to pinpoint the extremes in intraday momentum.
As the market tries to bottom after a sell off, there are gradually more candles with green bodies, even though...
RSI bands provide an intuitive way of visualizing how the price movement causes RSI to move with in its range (0-100). Upper/Lower bands signify overbought and oversold levels respectively (Default: 70/30, you can customize them via options page). These bands closely match what Constance Brown explains in her book "Technical Analysis for the Trading Professional"....
This is a 3 EMA visualization tool. Relative momentum across 3 timeframes are rendered as A/B/C waves. Also, helpful in identifying spike/exhaustion bars.
When all the waves are in the same direction, the momentum is very high on that direction. I have made all options configurable, have fun tuning for your instrument :)

This updates Blau's excellent Candlestick oscillator to be adaptive by using the length of a scaled stochastic indicator and an exponent (for calculating the smoothing coefficient) to obtain the moving average.

This is a composite oscillator derived from modified 5/10/20 Chande's Dynamic Momentum Index values.
Volatility is factored in, by design. Look for OB/OS extremes and divergences.
