I want to take a deep dive into what this indicator consists of and how you can use it to improve your trading strategy.
-What does the CCR consist of?
The oscillator is a combination of a true strength index sampled from on-balance volume and a regular RSI at default settings. The reason I added the on-balance volume is that it does not tend to remain at overbought or oversold conditions as traditional momentum oscillators do.
The histogram is copied to a tee from the MACD histogram, the only difference here is that I extended the moving averages to depict a special pairing; the ema55 slow and ema21 fast. I then converted it into another true strength index, as the calculations fit all time frames.
The divergences of an indicator can be extremely useful in catching scalp opportunities, a DARK RED/GREEN represents a REGULAR divergence, while a SALMON/LIGHT GREEN color represents a HIDDEN divergence.
The moving average:
The moving average built into this indicator is depicted as an aqua or yellow line, when the oscillator is moving in an uptrend, the moving average will appear aqua, when the oscillator is in a downtrend it will appear yellow. Use this as confirmation bias or as the third derivative of market position.
The Oscillator color is an important thesis of this indicator. When the line is green, it means the market is effectively in an uptrend, when it is red, it means the market is in a downtrend. Use this to prevent longing in a serious downtrend and vice versa.
