This is a famous trend indicator in MT4 platform. Is this better than other MA based trend systems? I will let you decide that :)
- Trend mode: This is the default. Draws a trend line (like MA) and colors them based on the trend.
- Ribbon Mode: Shown at the bottom pane. No trend lines are drawn.
- OverlayMode: Bars are colored based on the...
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)
A simple but effective Forex strategy requested by user @pipcollector.
Suggested chart timeframe is 5mins.
Indicator marks potential long/short entries based on the following conditions:
Price above pip median ema on daily, 4 hour and 1 hour timeframe. These 3 timeframes and median EMA lengths are configurable.
Background color is set to...
Relative Volume Indicator
RVI is a support-resistance technical indicator developed by Melvin E. Dickover. Unlike many conventional support and resistance indicators, the Relative Volume Indicator takes into account price-volume behavior in order to detect the supply and demand pools. These pools are marked by "Defended Price...

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...
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 Zone Indicator (VZO) and Price Zone Indicator (PZO) are by Waleed Aly Khalil.
Volume Zone Indicator (VZO)
VZO is a leading volume oscillator that evaluates volume in relation to the direction of the net price change on each bar.
A value of 40 or above shows bullish accumulation. Low values (<...
Short-term Volume and Price Oscillator (SVAPO), developed by Sylvian Vervroot, combines both Price and Volume to construct an oscillator. In essence, when the price is trending up and volume is increasing, volume is added into the oscillator calculation. Conversely, when price is trending down and volume is increasing, volume will be subtracted from the...
The CCT Bollinger Band Oscillator (CCTBO), developed by Steve Karnish of Cedar Creek Trading, reconfigures John Bollinger's classic Bollinger Bands (envelopes plotted at two Standard Deviations above and below a moving average) by drawing two parallel lines replacing the envelopes. The parallel lines represent a measurement of two Standard Deviations from the mean...
HACOLT (Heikin Ashi Candles Oscillator Long Term) is a technical indicator designed by Sylvain Vervoort. It is based on Mr.Vervoort's other indicator, HACO (Heikin-Ashi Candles Oscillator - posted here: ).
Optimized for long-term trading, HACOLT shows three levels: -1, 0 and 1. These levels suggest "an open short position",...
This is a port of a famous MT4 indicator, as requested by user @maximus71. This indicator uses MACD/BB to track trend direction and strength. Author suggests using this indicator on 30mins.
Explanation from the indicator developer:
"Various components of the indicator are:
Dead Zone Line: Works as a filter for weak signals. Do not trade when the red or green...
Cycle Channel is loosely based on Hurst's nested channels. Basic idea is to identify and highlight the shorter cycles, in the context of higher degree cycles.
This indicator plots the shorter term (red) & medium term (green) cycles as channels. Some things to note:
As you can see the red channel keeps moving with in the bounds of green channel. When green...
The PSO, developed by Lee Leibfarth, is a rewired version of a short-period stochastic. 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.
Rules as suggested by Mr.Lee:
This is a famous indicator I have seen used by many Forex traders in MT4 platform. This indicator uses the difference between EMA of "close" and EMA of "open" to form the oscillator lines (not just a convergence/divergence calculation between EMA of "close")
Current market state is determined by which histogram is above zero line. For more confirmation, wait for...
This is a remake of the famous LazyBear Indicator, the Squeeze Momentum Indicator.
All i did was take out the SMA's and replace them with HMA's. HMA is a more responsive moving average.
Hull Moving Average.
This is a derivative of John Carter's "TTM Squeeze" volatility indicator, as discussed in his book "Mastering the Trade" (chapter 11).
Black crosses on the...
The Volatility Switch (VOLSWITCH) indicator, by Ron McEwan, estimates current volatility in respect to historical data, thus indicating whether the market is trending or in mean reversion mode. Range is normalized to 0 - 1.
When Volatility Switch rises above the 0.5 level, volatility in the market is increasing, thus the price action can be expected to become...
The slow relative strength index (SRSI) indicator created by Vitali Apirine is a momentum price oscillator similar to RSI in its application and interpretation. Oscillating between 0 and 100, it generates both OB/OS signals and midline (50) cross over signals and divergences.
As author suggests, bullish/bearish divergences generated by SRSI are not as effective...
All I did was combine the logic from LazyBear for his OBV Oscillator to regular RSI divergence logic (where I replaced the RSI input to use LazyBear's OBV).
I didn't use any original code! Neither OBV (written by LazyBear) nor DIvergence (author unknown) was written by me. I merely modified the sytax a little to combine them.
Very useful for spotting...
