Alright - so this is my own version of John Carter's "10x Bars"... I have done multiple things that are different from his version so they are slightly different..
So first of all the main indicator is based off of the ADX and the DMI;
For those who aren't familiar with it, Directional Movement is what you'd pull up under "built-in's" from the indicators tab (if...
We display here the ADX has a colored histogram, which is
- green when ADX and DI+ are higher then DI-, while the ADX is increasing, meaning that we are in a potential uptrend--> we should rather be long (only buy if you have other concordant signals !)
- red when ADX and DI- are higher then DI+, while the ADX is increasing, meaning that we are in a potential...
Green Line = DM+
Red Line = DM-
Black Line = ADX
White Line = ADX Entry (if ADX is below this line indicates trend is weakness)
The indicator shows de DM- and DM+ cross, If the DM+ is above the DI- is in an uptrend (green background). Conversely, if the DM- is above the DI+ is in a downtrend (red background)
I recommend using it together with some other...
Indicator plots Money Flow Indicator (Chaikin). This indicator looks
to improve on Larry William's Accumulation Distribution formula that
compared the closing price with the opening price. In the early 1970's,
opening prices for stocks stopped being transmitted by the exchanges.
This made it difficult to calculate Williams' formula. The...
The Average Directional Movement Index Rating (ADXR) measures the strength
of the Average Directional Movement Index (ADX). It's calculated by taking
the average of the current ADX and the ADX from one time period before
(time periods can vary, but the most typical period used is 14 days).
Like the ADX, the ADXR ranges from values of 0 to 100 and reflects...
Average Directional Index is a way to determine trend strength (and whether there is a trend). One of the caveats is when you have trendless conditions on a higher timeframe. You can get whipsaw conditions on the current timeframe in that case.
The purpose of this script is to put ADX into the context of a higher degree trend on a single indicator.
A simple modification of the built-in "Average Directional Index":
To identify wether there is an uptrend or a downtrend, the function color is conditional:
no trend: black
small uptrend (weak threshold): light green
big uptrend (strong threshold): green
small downtrend (weak threshold): light red
big downtrend (strong threshold): red
Candles colors based on ADX and DI strength.
How to read:
ADX is less then 20 (adjustable value) is SILVER (no trend)
ADX >0 and DI delta (DI plus - DI minus) is >0 color LIME (trend up)
ADX>0 and DI delta <0 color RED (trend down)
ADX cross ADX Index ( adx+adx 14 period back)/2 color is BLACK and means start/end trend
