Smoothing methods have lag, and since MACD makes use of moving averages, it usually lags behind price. You cannot eliminate lag completely, but one way of working around this is by adding a component of the price/MA difference back to MA. This technique is called Zero-lag (well, almost). "MACD Leader" makes use of this to form a leading signal to MACD.
One more to add to the Ehlers collection.
Ehlers Instantaneous Trendline, by John Ehlers, identifies the market trend by doing removing cycle component. I think, this simplicity is what makes it attractive :) To understand Ehlers's thought process behind this, refer to the PDF linked below.
There are atleast 6 variations of this ITrend. This version is from...
As we all know, as published by Wilder, RSI makes use of "CLOSE" values. You probably have experimented changing the input to hl2 or hlc3 . I have included many other RSI variations in this chart. Refer to the developers section below to learn how you can use this code in your scripts.
1) RSI with Volume
---- May 05 2015 -----
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...
This a modified MAC-Z using Z-VWAP. Since this uses VWAP, the signals are derived indirectly from both volume and price action.
I have also included a way to smooth MACZ-VWAP, you can enable it via options page.
Note that this will not work on any FX pair, as volume is not available.
Z-distance from VWAP:...
Introduced by M.H.Pee, Trend Trigger Factor is designed to keep the trader trading with the trend.
System rules according to the developer:
* If the 15-day TTF is above 100 (indicating an uptrend), you will want to be in long positions.
* If the 15-day TTF is below -100, you will want to be short.
* If it is between -100 and 100, you should remain with the...
Elastic Volume Weighted Moving Average (eVWMA) is a statistical measure using the volume to define the period of the moving average. The eVWMA can be looked at as an approximation to the average price paid per share. Multiplier is usually the number of shares, but it can be approximated using cumulative sum of volume (Enable it via "Use Cumulative Volume" option)...

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...
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...
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",...
Here's an oscillator derived from my previous script, Cycle Channel Clone ().
There are 2 oscillator plots - fast & slow. Fast plot shows the price location with in the medium term channel, while slow plot shows the location of short term midline of cycle channel with respect to medium term channel.
Usage of this is...
According to Elder, "The Impulse System encourages you to enter a trade cautiously but exit fast, by identifying inflection points where a trend speeds up or slows down. This is the professional approach to trading, the total opposite of the amateur's style. Beginners jump into trades without thinking too much and take forever to get out, hoping and waiting for...

Use this like other Moving Averages. I have added the following options that can be enabled via options page:
- Trend Direction Indication: Green = Up trend, Blue =...
1) Trix Ribbon
This was built on request. Many Stock/FX traders overlay multiple Trix lines to form the ribbon, this indicator makes it easy.
Also, optionally this can plot a BollingerBand on Trix_1.

Another one to add to Ehlers collection.
The MESA Adaptive Moving Average (MAMA) adapts to price movement based on the rate of change of phase as measured by the Hilbert Transform Discriminator. This method features a fast attack average and a slow decay average so that composite average rapidly ratchets behind price changes and holds the average value until 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...
