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)
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.
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...

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...
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 :)
Complete list of all my indicators:...

This is ATR in pips. This was requested by user @ElixiumCapital. ATRPIPs in his words:
"ATR PIPs is useful for finding markets with your desired amount of volatility, for example I prefer to trade forex pairs with the highest amount of volatility in the past 5 days, setting the length parameter to 5 days. And setting my stop loss at 25% to 33% of the the...
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...
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...
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.
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...
RSX is a "noise free" version of RSI, with no added lag. This is a port of a clone to Pine.

Options page has all the configurable parameters. You can use the plot names to setup alerts.
I have couple of...
HawkEye volume, developed by Nigel Hawks, is supposed to be a premier VSA indicator. Documentation on this is scarce (looks like the training seminars/sessions conducted by the parent company cover this in detail), if you come across any (other than what I have mentioned on that chart) do let me know.
I am not sure how much this resembles the commercial...

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...
