This is little code snippet can be copied and pasted into your own strategies and indicators to easily calculate some interesting percentage change levels within a given lookback period.
The function will return:
The price change from the start to the end of the period
The price change from the start of the period to the highest point within the period
This indicator colors the volume bars based on any of the three follow criteria:
- Volume Amount
- RVOL (Relative Volume)
- Lookback (Highest Over Period)
You can use one, two or all three of these settings at the same time.
You can also set alerts with this indicator. The script will trigger an alert whenever any of the three specified flags are triggered.
Super easy to use with 5 SMAs (Simple Moving Average) for different lookback periods: 5, 8, 20, 50 and 200.
The periods can be changed in the settings.
It also comes with different colours for each lookback period.
I also left some lines which care commented out using the double slash '//' in case one wants to add alerts. Some sample code is left - you can...
@ChartArt got my attention to this idea.
This type of moving average was originally developed by Michael R. Bryant (Adaptrade Software newsletter, April 2014). Mr. Bryant suggested a new approach, so called Variable Efficiency Ratio (VER), to obtain adaptive behaviour for the moving average. This approach is based on Perry Kaufman' idea with Efficiency Ratio...
