CCL Bar Pack 5 *
CCL is abbreviation for 'Confirmed CLose'. Years ago I rejected indicators - which I now I have a more friendly relationship with btw- and went into bars. The only trading seminar I went to was by Kent Calhoun who developed his 5 vertical bar trading pattern, essentially a 3 bar swing with some rules, but from which he designed some very effective strategies.

I modified his pattern to feature a 'confirmed close' meaning that only if the close takes out the low of the #4 bar (in a forming high swing) is the pattern verified. Very simple. But not so easy to code. Once that was done, you have the ShowMe included which plots confirmed by close (ccl) swing highs and lows color coded such that higher highs and higher lows are bullish color (for me yellow), LL and LH bearish and a swing whose high or low penetrates a previous one but whose close does not confirm is red, i.e. neither bullish nor bearish and often indicative of trend exhaustion, new trend change etc.

Then there are some Fib levels from those swings.

Also a set that project targets.

There's another one somewhere that determines long term trends by keep track of 'Active Highs' and 'Active Lows', i.e. a low whose developing swing made a higher high is Active until it is penetrated or a higher active low is formed. The trend is up until an active low is penetrated. In this way a bull market is defined as higher highs, and a bear market is defined as lower lows in that a bear market only starts if an active low is penetrated and a bull if an active high is penetrated. If/when I find it I will post it here without further explanation.

Picture shows the attached files in action. Colors are garish by TS8 and Ninja standards but some might find the swing patterns of interest. TS8 users will find they can be made to look quite elegant.

Also, they can be helpful for developing wave and other calculations because the swing points can be referenced. That said, Ninja has a very good swing high/low function, although I must say that the confirmed close business does filter out many bad swings, but doesn't always need multiples of ATR's (and 5-10 bars) to determine them.
