What is the Supertrend indicator?
"The Supertrend indicator is a trend following overlay on your trading chart, much like a moving average, that shows you the current trend direction.
The indicator works well in a trending market but can give false signals when a market is trading in a range.
It uses the ATR (average true range) as part of...
I got the idea for a narrow Donchian Channel with a short lookback period which closely follows the price fluctuation in which the sides of the channel have a thickness according to the range of the last touching candle.
Any channel, be it Donchian, Keltner, Bollinger Bands or Parallel, has an upside and a downside, touching the upside is a buy signal as this may...
This script shows when price is in a range or trending. When the green line rises above the threshold the price is trending. When the green line falls below the threshold it's ranging. You may try adjusting the lookback way far back to find more areas of resistance.
It shows how many instances the current price has been crossed in the past...
This script is a useful tool to use to identify the current market. It includes three other indicators:
1. ATR (combined with a SMA of the ATR)
It allows you to filter for when the market is trending vs. when the market is ranging by using any of the three indicators. You can also combine them to find extremely good trends to trade, or if you're a...

Support and Resistance terms are used by traders to refer to price levels on charts that tend to act as barriers, preventing the price of an financial instrument from getting pushed in a certain direction.

Disclamer: This indicator does not use actual Volume data and doesn't display any Volume data. It creates a pseudo Volume Profile by counting the high-low-2 values of candles and simulates something that is similar to a Volume Profile without using any Volume data.

The diamonds above the bar shows the bar to completed the Narrowest Range (high - low) of your selected time period. The default period is 7 but can be changed through the inputs. The next bar will indicate with a label weather it is a predicted Break UP...
I've created a simple oscillator which I think does a good job of easily showing you when price is worth watching or not. I think all too often you get stuck looking at something like an RSI and end up trading noise.
From my observations and experiences, I've found that there are 2 major catalysts for price movement--
Price is either trending and reaches a...

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...
Creates a box around a specified time range with the ability to extend the lines to a later time.
- Background in box
- Remove historical boxes
- Extend lines in future instead of only till current price
There's similar but complex indicators out there, I'll leave this code as open source and you have permission to reuse and not credit me.
The original problem: The choppiness index is great at finding ranging markets, but it is sometimes very slow, which means most of the time it only catches the end of a trend.
This indicator tries to solve this. It uses the choppiness index and filters it using a factor that is based on the standard deviation of the ATR.
The ATR based filter is calculated by...
Uses daily average ranges of 5 and 10 (most used) as buy (support) and highs (resistance) areas - half ranges used in calculations for a more accurate "forecast" of the H and L . Uses open but not close, so it does not repaint - experimental
