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...
Heard this story from Larry Williams…the trader who holds the record for winning the U.S. Trading Championship by turning $10K in to 2 Million.
A trader named Owen Taylor developed this formula as a Floor Trader before to calculate the Projected High and Low of the next day.
The formula worked so well…Owen charged other Traders 1K to get it.
I was pretty...
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...
RSX is a "noise free" version of RSI, with no added lag. This is a port of a clone to Pine.
Use this indicator just like RSI. I have set the default length to 14, feel free to experiment. You can reduce length with out worrying about jaggedness.
Options page has all the configurable parameters. You can use the plot names to setup alerts.
I have couple of...
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. ...
Better Volume Indicator
This is a direct port of a famous indicator from Tradestation platform.
BVI improves on your typical volume histogram by coloring the bars based on 5 criteria:
* Volume Climax Up – high volume, high range, up bars (red)
* Volume Climax Down – high volume, high range, down bars (white)
Volume Accumulation Percentage Indicator (VAPI) is a variation of the classic volume-accumulation indicators. It uses volume the same way as OBV except that it assigns volume weights based on intraday volatility.
In a positive trend, if the stock price is close to a (local) new high, the VAPI should be at its maximum as well (and vice versa for a negative...
This is a port of a famous MT4 indicator, as requested by user @maximus71. This indicator uses MACD/BB to track trend direction and strength. Author suggests using this indicator on 30mins.
Explanation from the indicator developer:
"Various components of the indicator are:
Dead Zone Line: Works as a filter for weak signals. Do not trade when the red or green...
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.
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...

Volume-Weighted MACD Histogram
Volume-Weighted MACD Histogram, first discussed by Buff Dormeier, is a modified version of MACD study. It calculates volume-averaged Close price for finding the histogram.
One more to add to the Ehlers collection.
Ehlers Instantaneous Trendline, by John Ehlers, identifies the market trend by doing removing cycle component. I think, this simplicity is what makes it attractive :) To understand Ehlers's thought process behind this, refer to the PDF linked below.
There are atleast 6 variations of this ITrend. This version is from...
This indicator is a mimic of the same used by bitcoinwisdom.
There seems to be several different formulas to calculate KDJ, however, i have yet to find this one on tradingview.
The background color is green when J>D and red when J<D. The idea being that when we go green we should buy and when red sell.
Let me know if you have any questions.
This is the volume version of "DecisionPoint Breadth Swenlin Trading Oscillator"
DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator can be used to identify short-term tops and bottoms. You can read about the interpretation of the signals (& gotchas) in the link below.
I have added support for NYSE / NASD / AMEX and also a combined mode. You can specify custom...
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...
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...
