A pivot high (swing high) is a bar in a series of bars that has a higher value than the bars around it and a pivot low (swing low) is a bar in a series of bars that has a lower value than the bars surrounding it. The Bars Left and Bars Right parameters are used to define the number of bars on the left and right sides of a pivot point that the function should consider when identifying pivot highs and lows in a time series. For example, if Bars Left is set to 5 and Bars Right is set to 6, the function will look for a pivot point by comparing the value of the current bar with the values of the 5 bars to its left and the 6 bars to its right. If the value of the current bar is higher than all of these bars, it is considered a pivot high point. These parameter can be used to adjust the sensitivity of the script (lowering the Bars Left and Bars Right parameters will give you more swing points and increasing the Bars Left and Bars Right parameters will give you fewer swing points).
”Show Boxes” - This will draw a box above the swing high and a box below the swing low to help you visualise a large area of interest around swing points. Additional box types and the width of the box can be adjusted in Appearance settings below.
”Show Lines” - This will draw a horizontal line at the level of each swing high and swing low.
”Show Labels” - This will plot a circle at the high point of each swing high and at the low point of each swing low.
”Show Volume” - This will display the amount of volume traded in a given swing point candle. It can help you identify the significance of a given swing point by comparing it to the volumes of other swing points.
”Extend Until Filled” - This will extend the swing point levels until they are mitigated by the price. Turning it off will continue plotting the levels just a few more bars after a swing point occurs.
”Appearance” - You can show/hide swing points, choose the colors of labels, lines and boxes, choose the size and positioning of the text, choose line and box appearance (adjust the Box Width when switching between timeframes!) and more.
More updates coming soon (MTF, more data…)
