UFO + Realtime Divergences (UO x MFI)

PHVNTOM_TRADER Aggiornato   
UFO + Realtime Divergences (UO x MFI) + Alerts

The UFO is a hybrid of two powerful oscillators - the Ultimate Oscillator (UO) and the Money Flow Index (MFI)

Features of the UFO include:

- Optional divergence lines drawn directly onto the oscillator in realtime.
- Configurable alerts to notify you when divergences occur, as well as centerline crossovers.
- Configurable lookback periods to fine tune the divergences drawn in order to suit different trading styles and timeframes.
- Background colouring option to indicate when the oscillator has crossed its centerline.
- Alternate timeframe feature allows you to configure the oscillator to use data from a different timeframe than the chart it is loaded on.
- 2x MTF triple-timeframe Stochastic RSI overbought and oversold confluence signals painted at the top of the panel for use as a confluence for reversal entry trades.

The core calculations of the UFO+ combine the factory settings of the Ultimate Oscillator and Money Flow Index, taking an average of their combined values for its output eg:

UO_Value + MFI_Value / 2

The result is a powerful oscillator capable of detecting high quality divergences, including on very low timeframes and highly volatile markets, it benefits from the higher weighting of the most recent price action provided by the Ultimate Oscillators calculations, as well as the calculation of the MFI, which incorporates volume data. The UFO and its incorporated 2x triple-timeframe MTF Stoch RSI overbought and oversold signals makes it well adapted for low timeframe scalping and regular divergence trades in particular.

The Ultimate Oscillator (UO)

Tradingview describes the Ultimate Oscillator as follows:

“The Ultimate Oscillator indicator (UO) is a technical analysis tool used to measure momentum across three varying timeframes. The problem with many momentum oscillators is that after a rapid advance or decline in price, they can form false divergence trading signals. For example, after a rapid rise in price, a bearish divergence signal may present itself, however price continues to rise. The Ultimate Oscillator attempts to correct this by using multiple timeframes in its calculation as opposed to just one timeframe which is what is used in most other momentum oscillators.”

The Money Flow Index ( MFI )

Investopedia describes the True Strength Indicator as follows:

“The Money Flow Index ( MFI ) is a technical oscillator that uses price and volume data for identifying overbought or oversold signals in an asset. It can also be used to spot divergences which warn of a trend change in price. The oscillator moves between 0 and 100. Unlike conventional oscillators such as the Relative Strength Index ( RSI ), the Money Flow Index incorporates both price and volume data, as opposed to just price. For this reason, some analysts call MFI the volume-weighted RSI .”

The Stochastic RSI (relating to the built-in MTF Stoch RSI feature)

The popular oscillator has been described as follows:

“The Stochastic RSI is an indicator used in technical analysis that ranges between zero and one (or zero and 100 on some charting platforms) and is created by applying the Stochastic oscillator formula to a set of relative strength index ( RSI ) values rather than to standard price data. Using RSI values within the Stochastic formula gives traders an idea of whether the current RSI value is overbought or oversold. The Stochastic RSI oscillator was developed to take advantage of both momentum indicators in order to create a more sensitive indicator that is attuned to a specific security's historical performance rather than a generalized analysis of price change.”

How do traders use overbought and oversold levels in their trading?

The oversold level, that is when the Stochastic RSI is above the 80 level is typically interpreted as being 'overbought', and below the 20 level is typically considered 'oversold'. Traders will often use the Stochastic RSI at an overbought level as a confluence for entry into a short position, and the Stochastic RSI at an oversold level as a confluence for an entry into a long position. These levels do not mean that price will necessarily reverse at those levels in a reliable way, however. This is why this version of the Stoch RSI employs the triple timeframe overbought and oversold confluence, in an attempt to add a more confluence and reliability to this usage of the Stoch RSI .

What are divergences?

Divergence is when the price of an asset is moving in the opposite direction of a technical indicator, such as an oscillator, or is moving contrary to other data. Divergence warns that the current price trend may be weakening, and in some cases may lead to the price changing direction.

There are 4 main types of divergence, which are split into 2 categories;
regular divergences and hidden divergences. Regular divergences indicate possible trend reversals, and hidden divergences indicate possible trend continuation.

Regular bullish divergence: An indication of a potential trend reversal, from the current downtrend, to an uptrend.
Regular bearish divergence: An indication of a potential trend reversal, from the current uptrend, to a downtrend.
Hidden bullish divergence: An indication of a potential uptrend continuation.
Hidden bearish divergence: An indication of a potential downtrend continuation.

How do traders use divergences in their trading?

A divergence is considered a leading indicator in technical analysis , meaning it has the ability to indicate a potential price move in the short term future.

Hidden bullish and hidden bearish divergences, which indicate a potential continuation of the current trend are sometimes considered a good place for traders to begin, since trend continuation occurs more frequently than reversals, or trend changes.

When trading regular bullish divergences and regular bearish divergences, which are indications of a trend reversal, the probability of it doing so may increase when these occur at a strong support or resistance level . A common mistake new traders make is to get into a regular divergence trade too early, assuming it will immediately reverse, but these can continue to form for some time before the trend eventually changes, by using forms of support or resistance as an added confluence, such as when price reaches a moving average, the success rate when trading these patterns may increase.

Typically, traders will manually draw lines across the swing highs and swing lows of both the price chart and the oscillator to see whether they appear to present a divergence, this indicator will draw them for you, quickly and clearly, and can notify you when they occur.

Setting alerts.

With this indicator you can set alerts to notify you when any/all of the above types of divergences occur, on any chart timeframe you choose.

Configurable pivot period.

You can adjust the default pivot lookback values to suit your prefered trading style and timeframe. If you like to trade a shorter time frame, lowering the default lookback values will make the divergences drawn more sensitive to short term price action.
