Update(2): KR_Trender_v5 5 *
updated .ts file to reflect correct version # and add a quick change log.. no code changes. thanks to Hguru for the feedback...
Another update from previously posted KR_Trender_v4 for ToS. Inspired by some research around the 9/30 method, i needed something to show me the fast price move on the short-term compared to the prevailing longer-term trend to better identify entry points. initially i used Slow/Fast Stoch & Stoch Momentum but wasn't convinced. I went ahead and added a Fast_Momentum to KR_Trender.

for me, this is a 3 in 1. The concpet behind the calc of Fast_Mom and Trender lines is close to MACD (but more elaborate as we look at 3 EMA's not 2 - and Trender is bounded -100 to 100, where MACD isn't). then we have a representation of fast momentum (save the space of my SMI), and we have the "full trend flag" indicator when the price AND all the 3 EMA's align in a full trend formation.

on the top screen, i show the actual 3xEMA setup i used to originally develop the concept of KR_Trender, the shading is based on a BB, but has nothing to do with Trender, but it changes color based on the Trend state (Full up, Full Down, or in-Transition).

- Fast_Mom is calculated as score of the fast EMA vs it's own Hi/Low Channel. this is the same concept used by Stoch & Stoch Momentum, but then it's scaled to same scale as the main trend line - enabling mathematically comparing the 2 as rate of change of price taken from 2 diferent views.
- a crossing between Fast_Mom and Trender means the rate of price change on the short term has started to exceed, slow, or change direction from the longer-term rate of change. A crossing of zero means the shorter-term trend is reversing. if that's strong enough of a move, the longer trend will follow.
- once you get to use it, you will see the 2 lines sort of pull each other. retraces and pullbacks that provide good position entry points are much clearer as identified by the Fast_Mom line (that was my main issue)
- i kept PPS (Person's) indicator on top chart - Fast_Mom compares very well against PPS signals. many times beats it to indicate a change up or down. so that made me happy.

Other improvements:
- can show/hide Fast_Momentum plot
- can change length of Long_term Trend period. if equal to or below the main length, it will be ignored.
- Adjusted smoothing calc to only use EMA smoothing, as HMA causes an issue with chart labels in ToS
- Fast_Price_weight now 0 by default to allow focus on long-term trend and Fast_Momentum.
- Fast EMA is always taken as half of the main length

suggested Length/Long_Trend settings: 10/20 or 8/16 for intraday and 20/40 or 20/50 for longer term. Should not use Length lower than 4.

i used KR_Trender on a 5min chart as well as on daily/week . initial results are positive and tested well in live trading.

feel free to use, comment and feedback, and please keep only within BMT.
