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...
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...
This script is for custom candles based on an HMA calculation with a default period of 10 as well as an SMA of the close price, defaulted to 1 period to only show the current price. The purpose of the custom candles is to try and reduce noise from candles and help identify trends. These custom candles somewhat resemble Heikin-Ashi candles in their...

Added support for filtered ranges:
RID V3 : pastebin.com
RIDv3 has full backward compatibility (!?), meaning all my descriptions below still apply for V3.
-- In addition, I have added a NON-OVERLAY mode, which can be put in its own pane, that shows the number of bars in the current range.
-- in Overlay mode, you can switch on/off...

I noticed I have switched the plot names. Histo shd be the MACD and DMACD shd be the Signal.
Replace lines 16 & 17 with these to get the correct names. NOTE that no functionality is affected, just the names.

The Volatility Switch (VOLSWITCH) indicator, by Ron McEwan, estimates current volatility in respect to historical data, thus indicating whether the market is trending or in mean reversion mode. Range is normalized to 0 - 1.
When Volatility Switch rises above the 0.5 level, volatility in the market is increasing, thus the price action can be expected to become...
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.
I added the green/red ribbon look to make it easy to read :)

Developed by Sherman and Marian McClellan, the McClellan Oscillator is a breadth indicator derived from Net Advances, the number of advancing issues less the number of declining issues. Subtracting the 39-day exponential moving average of Net Advances from the 19-day exponential moving average of Net Advances forms the oscillator.
As the formula reveals, the...
As we all know, as published by Wilder, RSI makes use of "CLOSE" values. You probably have experimented changing the input to hl2 or hlc3 . I have included many other RSI variations in this chart. Refer to the developers section below to learn how you can use this code in your scripts.
1) RSI with Volume
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...
The PSO, developed by Lee Leibfarth, is a rewired version of a short-period stochastic. 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.
Rules as suggested by Mr.Lee:
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...
Price-Volume Rank, designed by Anthony J. Macek, compares the direction of the change in price (up or down) to the direction of the change in volume and assigns a number to that specific relationship. By quantifying price/volume interaction, P-V rank seeks to determine our position within a typical market cycle.
The various modes shown on the chart above or...
Anchored Momentum (AMOM), by Rudy Stefenel, is a modified momentum indicator to capture the relative momentum. AMOM uses SMA as the reference for deriving momentum, thereby anchoring it to that MA rather than "value of close n bars back".
Mr.Stefenel suggests using this like other oscillators -- crossing signal line, crossing zero, divergences.
For alerts, use...
TMF is a CMF (Chaikin Money Flow) variation that addresses some of the gaps in the original indicator. More info: www.incrediblecharts.com
TMF uses true range, rather than daily Highs minus Lows. Also, uses Wilder's MA rather than SMA/EMA.
Since I had to write Wilder's MA (WiMA) for TMF, I have published that also as a separate indicator. WiMA is like EMA, but...
The Breadth Thrust (BT) indicator is a market momentum indicator developed by Dr. Martin Zweig. According to Dr. Zweig a Breadth Thrust occurs when, during a 10-day period, the Breadth Thrust indicator rises from below 40 percent to above 61.5 percent.
A "Thrust" indicates that the stock market has rapidly changed from an oversold condition to one of strength,...
I am a big fan of Constance Brown. Her book "Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals" is an absolute classic (get the 2nd edition).
I have included here 2 of the indicators she uses in all her charts.
This is a formula Ms Brown developed (Cardwell may not agree!) to identify divergence failures with...
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. ...
