Choppy Market Index V1 5 *
Ranging or trending? From 'Tackling trending and ranging markets with CMI', by Daniel Fernandez, 8/11.

This indicator shows the change in price of an instrument as a percentage of the range over the same time period. If price started the period at one extreme of the range and ended at the other extreme, percentage will be 100. If it started and ended at the same price, percentage will be zero. Also shows when current price is above or below that of the 'Signal period' by coloring the CMI line green or red. In addition, there is an SMA of the CMI line. Basically, when the value is low, price isn't really going anywhere and when it's high, price is moving steadily. Overall period, signal period and SMA period are all user-configurable.

This indicator is certainly similar to some others, but I have found that it has helped me identify tops and bottoms better than the various included-with-Ninjatrader indicators that I have tried. So, I thought I'd offer it to the community, in case it's of use to anyone else.

This description is right from the article:
Ranging: enter long when Smooth < 40 and CMI is red; enter short when Smooth < 40 and CMI is green. Trending: enter long when Smooth > 60 and CMI is green; enter short when Smooth > 60 and CMI is red. Exit all trades when CMI crosses 50. Divides difference between Close[0] and Close[CMIPeriod] by difference between MAX(High, CMIPeriod) and MIN(Low, CMIPeriod). Adds SMA(SMAPeriod) of that value. Colors CMI plot green when Close[0] > Close[SignalPeriod] and red when Close[0] < Close[SignalPeriod].

Fernandez's default values are 60, 20, 10. (CMI, Signal, SMA)
