The purpose of this indicator is to programmatically determine the type of price trend using technical analysis tools.
You can do a quick check on the asset’s higher and lower time frames. For example, if you are trading on an H1 chart, you can check the m5 chart to ensure that the trend is in the same direction and similarly check the H4 chart to ensure...
It's a simply volume indicator. You should watch for breaks on both volume uptrend and volume downtrend. It uses fibonacci numbers to build smoothed moving average of volume.
Also you can check divergences for trend reversal and momentum loss.
RSI is a momentum indicator, however most people seem to be using it to go against the momentum by trying to identify tops/bottoms using it. Its in my opinion the wrong way to be using it. It can be easily used for trend following which seems like a better use for it.
Uptrend - RSI > 60
Downtrend - RSI < 40
Sideways - RSI between 40 and 60
If however not...
The indicator is taken from Alexander Elders "Triple Screen System," minus using the Weekly MACD as a filter/trend. I believe waiting for the force index and the weekly MACD histogram to line-up is uber conservative and a trader will miss too many signals (In my opinion).
The indicator is for a pullback trader. A trader that waits for a trend to develop then...
See the current trend strength of the market. An additional filter makes trend consolidation areas visible. The color changes there each bar back and forth between green and red.
This area was interesting. Would have been a better example:
If the filter is deactivated the indicator shows the last measured price trend (green for up and down for red).
This is a very simple trading system which is measuring the core of uptrends and downtrends using three basic elements: Close price, HL2 price, Pivot price.
Depending if the uptrend or downtrend is strong, the buy/sell signals are shown in different colors. The stronger trends are in brighter colors (lime and fuchsia). If the trend just fully changed direction...
Trend Sniper is a trend-following indicator that sticks closer to the trend than others moving averages as it is using an upgraded weighted moving average implementation.
It is typical to use a moving average indicator (SMA, EMA, WMA or TMA) to identify the trend of an asset. Standard moving averages indicators smooth the price and doesn’t stick...
This is a two stochastic in one indicator :
We have a normal stochastic, and a slower one in order to identify changes in the price movement.
At the same time I added more levels, so its easier visually to identify in each scenario we are.
The slower oscillator, also change color based on direction it has.
Green color = long direction - > buy
Red color = ...
Condition: in uptrend, EMA8 > EMA144 (User can change the EMA# from input);
Price Action: (Price crossover EMA144) or (price touched EMA144 and close above it);
Trading Plan: Buy at close or next open; Initial Stop below EMA144;
No Exit strategy in this study, trader needs to move stop by other rules; such as, uptrend line break;
Back test Weekly and daily...
I got the idea for a narrow Donchian Channel with a short lookback period which closely follows the price fluctuation in which the sides of the channel have a thickness according to the range of the last touching candle.
Any channel, be it Donchian, Keltner, Bollinger Bands or Parallel, has an upside and a downside, touching the upside is a buy signal as this may...
This is an improved version of the on balance volume indicator.
I made it inside a bollinger band channel, so we can define better the zones. At the same time I applied 2 moving averages on OBV, to get a better idea of the trend and at same time that change direction of the trend.
Green - > uptrend - > we look for buy positions
Red - > downtrend -> we look for...
This ADX indicator (Average Directional Index) tries to estimate the strength of a trend. The Average Directional Index is derived from the positive (+DI) and the negative directional indicator (-DI). The direction of movement is determined by comparing the highs and lows of the current and past periods.
As soon as the indicator determines a trend strength for...
Useful for identifying and receiving alerts about uptrends and downtrends.
This script uses two Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) to find price uptrends and downtrends. An Exponential Moving Average (EMA) is a type of moving average that places a greater weight and significance on the most recent data points. The script produces uptrend and downtrend signals...
A very noisy indicator to detect bottoms and new uptrends.
Original idea by ChartArt.
First published indicator - constructive criticism welcome.
(The indicator is experimental and doesn't work most of the time.)
I would describe it as an "coincident indicator". The signals occur at approximately the same time as the conditions it signifies. Rather than...
The Vortex indicator is based on two trend lines that indicate an uptrend (VI+) or a downtrend (VI-) in the current market. This can be used to determine trend reversals or confirmations of current trends and directions. The number of periods is usually between 10 and 25. This indicator has 14 periods as its default value. You can adjust this value in the settings...
The Stacked Moving Averages indicator lets you see if a ticker is in an uptrend, downtrend, or no trend based on the condition of the moving averages. If the moving averages are stacked such that MA1>MA2>MA3>MA4>MA5, then that is described as an uptrend. If the moving averages are stacked such that MA5>MA4>MA3>MA2>MA1, then that is defined as a downtrend.
