Variable Moving Average, often abbreviated as VMA, is an Exponential Moving Average developed by Tushar S. Chande. VMA automatically adjusts its smoothing constant on the basis of Market Volatility.
Use this like other Moving Averages. I have added the following options that can be enabled via options page:
- Trend Direction Indication: Green = Up trend, Blue =...
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...
Enhanced Parabolic Sar
Simply Enhances Default Parabolic SAR by creating Two Color Options, One for UpTrend, Other for DownTrend
Ability To Turn On/Off The Up Trending Parabolic SAR, And The Down Trending Parabolic SAR
Great Indicator For Trailing Stops.
Developed by Buff Dormeier, VPCI won 2007 Charles H Dow award by the MTA. VPCI plots the relationship between price trend and the volume, as either being in a state of confirmation or contradiction.
Excerpt from article below:
"Fundamentally, the VPCI reveals the proportional imbalances between price trends and volume-adjusted price
trends. An uptrend...
These levels are based on price around earnings day. I have implemented support for 2 calculation modes:
Mode 1: Level = (low of 1 day prior to earnings + high of 1 day after earnings) / 2.0
Mode 2: Level = (hl2 of 1 day prior to earnings + hl2 of 1 day after earnings + close from earnings day) / 3.0
Chart above shows "Mode 1". Mode can be changed via options...
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...
Stochastic Momentum Index (SMI) or Stoch MTM is used to find oversold and overbought zones. It also helps to figureout whether to enter short trade or long trade.
Red Shade in the Top indicates that the stock is oversold and the Green shade in the bottom indicates overbought.
Enter Long once the Overbought Zone ended and there's a crossover...
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)
This is a modified form of PSO (original idea by Lee Leibfarth), to use RSI as the input.
This provides a quick response to changes in market direction. This highly sensitive indicator allows for early anticipation of price turns and can be used to establish definitive trading zones that identify potential trading opportunities.
Entry/Exit rules are the same...

Suggested chart timeframe is 5mins.
Indicator marks potential long/short entries based on the following conditions:
Price above pip median ema on daily, 4 hour and 1 hour timeframe. These 3 timeframes and median EMA lengths are configurable.

Another one to add to Ehlers collection.
The MESA Adaptive Moving Average (MAMA) adapts to price movement based on the rate of change of phase as measured by the Hilbert Transform Discriminator. This method features a fast attack average and a slow decay average so that composite average rapidly ratchets behind price changes and holds the average value until the...
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...
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.
This is my custom channel (Bear Channel!? :)) derived from BB/STARC. It uses both ATR/STDEV for plotting the bounds.
I use COG (Center of Gravity) for deriving the baseline. This enables it to track the price action better than many other channels that make use of MAs or simply "close". Indicator also marks "squeezes" (stdev bands come inside ATR bands). Pay...
DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator can be used to identify short-term tops and bottoms. This is a breadth indicator. STO is designed to be calculated using either issues or volume, I will post a follow up indicator that makes use of volume.
You can read about the interpretation of the signals (& gotchas) in the link below.
I have added support for NYSE /...
HACOLT (Heikin Ashi Candles Oscillator Long Term) is a technical indicator designed by Sylvain Vervoort. It is based on Mr.Vervoort's other indicator, HACO (Heikin-Ashi Candles Oscillator - posted here: ).
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...
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...
