This is an update to my earlier script, CDC ActionZone V2
The two scripts works slightly differently with V3 reacting slightly faster.
The main update is focused around conforming the standard to Pine Script V4.
## How it works ##
ActionZone is a very simple system, utilizing just two exponential moving
averages. The 'Zones' in which different 'actions' should be taken is
highlighted with different colors on the chart. Calculations for the zones
are based on the relative position of price to the two lines and the
relationship between the two EMAs
CDCActionZone is your barebones basic, tried and true, trend following system
that is very simple to follow and has also proven to be relatively safe.
## How to use ##
The basic method for using ActionZone is to follow the green/red color.
Buy when bar closes in green.
Sell when bar closes in red.
There is a small label to help with reading the buy and sell signal.
Using it this way is safe but slow and is expected to have around 35-40%
accuracy, while yielding around 2-3 profit factors. The system works best
on larger time frames.
The more advanced method uses the zones to switch between different
trading system and biases, or in conjunction with other indicators.
Buy when blue and between price and is visible,
if not Buy on Green and vise-versa
Set up a long-biased grid and trade long only when actionzone is in
green, yellow or orange.
change the bias to short when actionzone turns to side
(red, blue, aqua)
(Look at colors on a larger time frame)
## Note ##
The price field is set to close by default. change to either HL2 or OHLC4
when using the system in intraday timeframes or on market that does not close
## Note2 ##
The fixed timeframe mode is for looking at the current signal on a larger time frame
ie. When looking at charts on 1h you can turn on fixed time frame on 1D to see the
current 'zone' on the plotted on to the hourly chart.
This is useful if you wanted to use the system's 'Zones' in conjunction with other
types of signals like , for example.
Mine usually involves stocks that have retraced back down significantly and is trading with high enough volume
