Bollinger Bands (BB) usually expand quickly after a volatility increase but contract more slowly as volatility declines. This extended time it takes for BB to contract after a volatility drop can make trading some instruments using BB alone difficult or less profitable.
In the October 1998 issue of "Futures" there is an article written by Dennis...
Price-Volume Rank, designed by Anthony J. Macek, compares the direction of the change in price (up or down) to the direction of the change in volume and assigns a number to that specific relationship. By quantifying price/volume interaction, P-V rank seeks to determine our position within a typical market cycle.
The various modes shown on the chart above or...
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...
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
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 (<...
This updates Blau's excellent Candlestick oscillator to be adaptive by using the length of a scaled stochastic indicator and an exponent (for calculating the smoothing coefficient) to obtain the moving average.
Check out the options page for configurable variables.

DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator can be used to identify short-term tops and bottoms. This is a breadth indicator. STO is designed to be calculated using either issues or volume, I will post a follow up indicator that makes use of volume.
You can read about the interpretation of the signals (& gotchas) in the link below.
I have added support for NYSE /...
Lets go with another adaptive indicator today. BTW, this is my 199th script (1 more and I am planning to work on my other backlogs).
This is the adaptive version of Ehlers' Center Of Gravity (CG) (already published, check "More info" below). Idea behind making something "adaptive" is to calculate it using dynamic cycle period inputs instead of static setting. In...
Designed for 4 hour charts - No repaint.
BreakingDawn tries to anticipate the trend change before the actual break from one trend to another. This is an extenstion to WaveTrend from LazyBear.
Cudos to LazyBear for his awesome WaveTrend script!
Volatility Quality Index (VQI), by Thomas Stridsman, points out the difference between bad and good volatility in order to identify better trade opportunities in the market.
This plots 3 lines:
- Red line is the VQI (actually, sum of VQI).
- Green line is the 9-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.
- Orange line is the 200-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.
Stridsman suggested to...
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 High-Low Index is a breadth indicator based on Record High Percent, which is based on new 52-week highs and new 52-week lows.
Readings below 50 indicate that there were more new lows than new highs. Readings above 50 indicate that...
This indicator is a composite of MACD and Z-Score (requested by @ChartAt). The general idea is that counter-trend component of the Z-score is used to adjust/improve the trend component of the MACD. The advantage is that it is a more accurate and “assumption-free” and can more accurately describe how a market or stock actually works in a given time frame.
The Cyber Cycle Indicator, developed by John Ehlers, is used for isolating the cycle component of the market from its trend counterpart. Unlike other oscillators like RSI, Cyber Cycle Indicator's wave has a variable amplitude.
Use the osc/signal crossover for entry/exit points. You can enable highlighting the crossovers by using region fills (via options page). I...
One of the early cycle indicators from John Ehlers.
Ehlers suggests using this with ITrend (see linked PDF below). Osc/signal crosses identify entry/exit points.
Options page has the usual set of configurable params.

CCT StochRSI, proposed by Steve Karnish of Cedar Creek Trading, reconfigures classic StochRSI using custom parameters and smoothing.
There are 6 types supported.

Another famous Ehlers indicator.
This is the adaptive version of Ehlers' Cyber Cycle (CC) (already published, check "More info" below). Idea behind making something "adaptive" is to calculate it using dynamic cycle period inputs instead of static setting. In adaptive cyber cycle, Ehlers uses the dominant cycle period as the length in computation of...
This is ATR in pips. This was requested by user @ElixiumCapital. ATRPIPs in his words:
"ATR PIPs is useful for finding markets with your desired amount of volatility, for example I prefer to trade forex pairs with the highest amount of volatility in the past 5 days, setting the length parameter to 5 days. And setting my stop loss at 25% to 33% of the the...
