AlMaCrossers Indicator (MACD and SMAs) 5 *
Hello there,

The AlMaCrossers indicator is my first attempt to build a trading bot. The logic still not finished but the indicator will signal potential entries and exits (I using it on micros and e-mini futures) that one has to assess before taking the real trade.

The indicator takes into account two other indicator types: MACD and SMA.

SMAs are 4, 8, and 15.

The algorithm will (each tick):
1. evaluate if the 4EMA has crossover the 15
2. evaluate if the MACD crossed over the signal
3. evaluate if the MACD histogram is greater than the value (parameter) specified by the user. I made this one flexible because the values vary depending on the instrument.
4. evaluate the steepness of the 4EMA which should be greater than the specified by the user.

I'm working on some other dynamic values to improve accuracy on entries and exists.

- The indicator won't generate another signal (Long nor short) until the current position is closed!
- The entry (and exit) price s plotted along with a small green (red for shorts) triangle.
- The Exit signal will plot the PnL of the trade.

MACDBBLines (amaMACDBBLines) 5 *
Version 1.3 October 30, 2018

The MACDBBLines indicator is built from a standard MACD indicator with Bollinger Bands added to the signal line. The MACD values are shown as dots. This indicator is typically used to generate with-trend entries when the upper or lower Bollinger Band is violated.

Minor trend: The minorlower timeframe trend is up when the MACD is rising. It is down when the MACD is falling.

Major trend: The higher timeframe trend may be taken from the MACD itself. An major uptrend is signaled when MACD > 0, while MACD < 0 stands for a major downtrend.

Public Properties: The indicator comes with a few public Series<double> that can be accessed via other indicators or automated strategies. These will also be shown in the strategy builder. The series "Trend" may be used to detect the minor trend. "Trend" will show the value +2 when the MACD is rising and above the upper Bollinger Band, +1 when it is rising and below the upper Bollinger Band, -1 when it is falling and above the lower Bollinger Band, -2 when it is falling and below the lower Bollinger Band. You will further find two Series<double> "LongSignal" and "ShortSignal". "LongSignal" will return +2 for an upper band violation in a major uptrend (strong signal), +1 for an upper band violation in a major downtrend (weak signal) and 0 for no signal. Accordingly, "ShortSignal" will return +2 for a lower band violation in a major downtrend (strong signal), +1 for an lower band violation in a major uptrend (weak signal) and 0 for no signal.

Market Analyzer Column: The indicator comes with two separate market analyzer columns. The first column will simply indicate the trend and return values based on rising and falling MACD above or below the Bollinger Bands as described above. The second column will return entry signals, where +2 stand for a strong long signal, + 1 for a weak long signal, 0, for no signal, -1 for a weak short signal and - 2 for a strong short signal. For the market analyzer I have squeezed long and short signals into a single column, as there is little space on a market analyzer. For the Series<double> objects, I have separated the LongSignal and ShortSignal series, as they are designed to return positive values or 0 for no signal only. Please pay attention to the difference.

Paint Bars: The indicator comes with paint bars that reflect the minor trend. The colors are similar to the colors for the MACDBB dots, but you may differentiate between upcloses and downcloses.

Sound Alerts: The indicator comes with sound alerts that will be triggered when the upper or lower band is violated, or when the major trend changes.

Yes, I know, there are an infinite number of variations on the MACD indicator.

That said, I wanted an MACD that I could define overbought and oversold conditions for. That is difficult to do given the different tick sizes of various instruments. So I created a normalized MACD. So this will plot with similar values whether you are trading the 6J or the YM. With this in mind, you can establish OB/OS levels in the indicator. The indicator will trigger alerts when there is a crossover in OB/OS territory. In general, I've found that values between 5 and 10 are good for the OB/OS levels. When a crossover happens in this region, a trend reversal is more likely. When the indicator is moving between the OB/OS levels, it is generally not a great time to enter the market.

Also, I like simple. So this indicator just shows one colored plot. It changes colors when the MACD and AVE plots cross, showing only one line. I still include all the normal data series you can access (Default, Ave, Diff). There are several DataSeries you can access for strategies as well as for market analyzers. You can also define time zones for the alerts. If there is a particular strategy you trade off the MACD that is time sensitive, this will allow you to define that time block when you would like to be alerted.

The screenshot shows this indicator with my CandleStickDoctor indicator.



UPDATE (1/31/17)
I found a small bug with the time logic that I corrected. If you want the indicator to generate signals at all times, set all the time bins to -1.

Also added the ability to select different MA's as the source for the MACD.

BloodHound MACD/Keltner 20.5 v2 5 *
I was asked to updated the BloodHound MACD/Keltner 20.5 strategy to add a trend filter and a multiple time frame for the trend. The suggestion was for a 21 HMA. So I included a 5 minute chart for that and added it to the strategy. I backtested the strategy in Crude for January 2014 on a 233 tick chart, and it was profitable on that. I will post the performance report on the new BloodHound strategy post:

Trend Follower 4 *
It uses a DM +/- and a MACD Crossover strategy. It works good on the ES_F 15min with 15 tick stop loss. Play around, have fun. Let me know what you think. It also gets you out of trades on exit positions if the conditions no longer warrent

MACD BB Lines V3 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.10

This is a fast version of the MACD BB Lines indicator. The MACD settings and the band period, the multiplier for the standard deviation, the dotsize and all colors can be selected.

Different colors can be selected for a rising and falling MACD and for dots outside and inside the Bollinger Bands. The zeroline crosses are indicated by large dots. The zeroline itself can be used as a trend filter.

Paint Bars: The price bars can be painted in the same color as the dots. To allow for differentiating downcloses from upcloses, downcloses are filled while upcloses are hollow bars. The opacity for the upcloses can be selected.

Alerts: Breakouts from the Bollinger Band (violation dots) can be indicated with arrows or sound alerts. A sound alert for zeroline crosses has also been added.

This indicator can also be used on multiseries charts or charts with equidistant bar spacing set to "false".

The default colours are adapted to dark backgrounds. Please change them, if you use the MACDBBLines on a lighter background.

The sound files are included with the zip file. You have to unzip them manually and copy them to the NinjaTrader sounds directory.

Update April 5, 2011: You can now select different colors for
- rising MACD below upper Bollinger Band
- rising MACD above upper Bollinger Band (trending)
- falling MACD above lower Bollinger Band
- falling MACD below lower Bollinger Band (trending)
Update July 17, 2011: Indicator simplified.
Update September 6, 2011: Options for customizing plots added.
Update February 8, 2011: Paintbars added.
Update May 17, 2012: Arrows and sound alerts added. Opacity for upclose paint bars is selectable.
