irDeltaMomentumV2 for NT-8.0.18.1 64-bit 5 *
Indicator updated to Version 2 2019-09-07
Managed to get this sorted out today (finally) for NT-8, with the help of a friend.

As the name implies this is a Delta Momentum indicator (similar to one of the Gomi tools we all used on NT-7).

One thing to note however is that this indicator uses the Order Flow Cumulative Delta that was built into the lifetime license version of NinjaTrader 8 so this will not work with some of the basic versions of the platform.

***Note***
I added some functionality that was missing in the original version (due to my lack of coding skills), this version gives the user the ability to choose the Delta Calculation Type, BidAsk or UpDownTick.

***Note-2***
I'm not sure why, but the file that will download has the original file name even though the indicator included is the corrected version-2.

Enjoy,
TGN

Connors RSI (amaConnorsRSI) 5 *
Version 1.0 March 6, 2017

Created by Larry Connors, this indicator is a composite of three separate components. Two of the three components utilize the Relative Strength Index (RSI) calculations developed by Welles Wilder in the 1970’s, and the third component ranks the most recent price change on a scale of 0 to 100.

In effect, the three components combine to form a momentum oscillator. The output value between 0 and 100 then identifies short-term overbought and oversold conditions.

William Blau Double Smoothed Stochastics 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.22

The indicator allows to display the Double Smoothed Stochastics - see Stocks & Commodities, January 1991. The Double Smoothed Stochastics as introduced by William Blau should not be confused with the better known Double Smoothed Stochastics (DSS) indicator by Walter Bressert.

Blau Double Smoothed Stochastics (DSS-B): The raw Stochastics is calculated as the percentage value for the close within the range created from the highest high and the lowest low over the lookback period. The DSS-B is obtained by separately double-smoothing both numerator and denominator of the raw Stochastics. The double-smoothed value for the numerator is then divided by the double-smoothed value for the denominator.

Stochastics Smoothing: William Blau twice applied an EMA to both numerator and denominator of the raw Stochastics. This indicator allows to use 30 different moving averages for the smoothing. The same moving average type is used for the first and the second average calculation.

Parameters: The lookback period for the raw Stochastics indicates the number of bars for which the highest high and lowest low is determined. The lookback period is comparable to all other Stochastics indicators. The default value is 14 bars. The double smoothing of numerator and denominator is done with two moving averages. The first smoothing is typically done with a faster moving average, the second with a slower moving average.

Signal line: William Blau did not use a signal line for the double smoothed indicators. I have added the signal line, because the cross of the signal line can be used as a trend indication. Moving average type and period for the signal line can be selected.

Histogram: The indicator has an option to plot a histogram, which shows the difference between DSs and signal line.

Trend definition: The indicator exposes the current trend via an IntSeries. The trend can be determined based on the DSS (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral), the signal line (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral)) or the DSS / signal line crosses. All trend definitions are not straightforward, but require a higher close to switch to an uptrend, or a lower close to switch to a downtrend. Moreover the DSS / signal line cross will only show an uptrend, when not oversold and a downtrend when not overbought.

Paint bars: The paintbars can be used to plot the trend information. The trend states are uptrend, downtrend and neutral trend as explained above. It is possible to apply the indicator to the price panel and unselect the indicator plots. This allows to use the indicator as a "paintbar only" indicator.

Sound alerts: The indicator comes with sound alerts which are triggered when the trend changes. The sound files are included with the zip file and should be manually copied into the directory Documents -> program files (x86) -> NinajTrader 7 -> sounds.

Update March 13, 2014: Trend filter modified. Histogram added.

Directional Trend Index 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.22

The Directional Trend Index (DTI) was developed by William Blau and published in his book "Momentum, Direction and Divergence".

To determine the value of the DTI William Blau first calculates a composite momentum from both highs and lows of the last days. In a next step both the composite momentum and the absolute values of the composite momentum are smoothed. The smoothed momentum is then divided by the smoothed absolute momentum and the result is multiplied with 100.

Momentum smoothing: William Blau smoothed both momentum and absolute momentum by applying an EMA several times (double or triple smoothing). This indicator allows to use 16 different moving averages for the smoothing. The same moving average type is used for all three average calculations.

Parameters: The lookback period for the momentum the number of bars from which the momentum is calculated. Blau uses a lookback period, which is different from the standard momentum. To obtain a 1-period momentum (price change from the last to the current bar) the Directional Trend Index requires a setting of 2 for the lookback period (default setting).

Signal line: William Blau did not use a signal line for the double smoothed indicators. I have added the signal line, because the cross of the signal line can be used as a trend indication. Moving average type and period for the signal line can be selected.

Histogram: The indicator has an option to plot a histogram, which shows the difference between DTI and signal line.

Trend definition: The indicator exposes the current trend via an IntSeries. The trend can be determined based on the DTI (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral), the signal line (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral)) or the DTI / signal line crosses. All trend definitions are not straightforward, but require a higher close to switch to an uptrend, or a lower close to switch to a downtrend. Moreover the DTI / signal line cross will only show an uptrend, when not oversold and a downtrend when not overbought.

Paint bars: The paintbars can be used to plot the trend information. The trend states are uptrend, downtrend and neutral trend as explained above. It is possible to apply the indicator to the price panel and unselect the indicator plots. This allows to use the indicator as a "paintbar only" indicator.

Sound alerts: The indicator comes with sound alerts which are triggered when the trend changes. The sound files are included with the zip file and should be manually copied into the directory Documents -> program files (x86) -> NinajTrader 7 -> sounds.

Update March 17, 2014: Option added to select sound files

William Blau Double Smoothed Momentum
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.22

The indicator shows the Double Smoothed Momentum - see Stocks & Commodities, May 1991.

Blau Double Smoothed Momentum (DSM-B): The raw Stochastics is calculated as the percentage value for the close within the range created from the highest close and the lowest close over the lookback period. The term "Double Smoothed Momentum" is somewhat misleading. The DSM-B is obtained by separately double-smoothing both numerator and denominator of the raw Stochastics. The double-smoothed value for the numerator is then divided by the double-smoothed value for the denominator.

Stochastics Smoothing: William Blau twice applied an EMA to both numerator and denominator of the raw Stochastics. This indicator allows to use 30 different moving averages for the smoothing. The same moving average type is used for the first and the second average calculation.

Parameters: The lookback period for the raw Stochastics indicates the number of bars for which the highest close and lowest close is determined. The lookback period is comparable to all other Stochastics indicators. The default value is 14 bars. The double smoothing of numerator and denominator is done with two moving averages. The first smoothing is typically done with a faster moving average, the second with a slower moving average.

Signal line: William Blau did not use a signal line for the double smoothed indicators. I have added the signal line, because the cross of the signal line can be used as a trend indication. Moving average type and period for the signal line can be selected.

Histogram: The indicator has an option to plot a histogram, which shows the difference between DSM and signal line.

Trend definition: The indicator exposes the current trend via an IntSeries. The trend can be determined based on the DSM (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral), the signal line (rising & not oversold, falling & not overbought, neutral)) or the DSM / signal line crosses. All trend definitions are not straightforward, but require a higher close to switch to an uptrend, or a lower close to switch to a downtrend. Moreover the DSM / signal line cross will only show an uptrend, when not oversold and a downtrend when not overbought.

Kaufman Efficiency Ratio 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.5

The Kaufman Eifficiency Ratio is also know as Fractal Efficiency. It can be used as a filter to differentiate between trending conditions and sideways markets.

The efficiency ratio compares the absolute amount of the n-period momentum to the sum of the absolute amounts of the last n close-to-close changes. If all close-to-close changes pointed in the same direction - meaning either n consecutive upcloses or n consecutive downcloses - the fractal efficiency will take the value 100. This is an indication for a strong trend. If the n-period momentum takes the value 0, the fractal efficiency becomes 0 as well, indicating chop.

The fractal efficiency is used by the Kaufman Adaptive Moving Average to identify chop periods.

This version of the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio has a few additional options:

Chopline: I have added a chopline, which depends on the period of the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio. The formula for the chopline is 100/Sqrt(period).

Signalline: I have added a signalline by using a Hull Moving Average(HMA). The market starts trending, when the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio has crossed both the signalline and the chopline from below.

Classic/Balanded: The indicator allows for two different ways of calculating the Kaufman Efficiency Ratio. The 'Classic' option uses the original formula of Perry Kaufman. The 'Balanced' option replaces the absolute amount of the n-period momentum with the absolute amount of the n-period balanced momentum, which is based on a triangular moving average.

Update June 22, 2013: Minor modification to make indicator compatible with indicators/strategies running in COBC = false.

New: K_Trender_TopChart_v2a for ToS 5 *
Updated with V2a, corrected only the channel type names (for technical correctness).. Donchian Channel is the Highest/Lowest for a period, which produces a boxy-looking channel.. that's my favourite (google Donchain system). i don't know a technical term for the channel when you take an EMA of highest/lowest which produces a curvy-type channel, so i refer to it as DonchianEMA. the rest is the same .. no calculation changes...

Here's a "Swiss Army Knife" study for fellow ToS'ers .. big thank you to my good forum friend, HGuru, for helping me complete this ...

this is a many-in-1 study, that provides a choice of price channel of many that are commonly used (Keltner, Highest/Lowest, Elder, Keltner, Bollinger..etc), and provide 2 types of signals, based on momentum of 2 EMA lengths of price (Length & Fast_Length):

1 - the primary Momentum signal is based on the main length you set in the study, and is reflected in the color of the price channel itself (green = Up = go Long, red = Down = go short, yellow = retrace or "in-transition")
(pls remember this is momentum and not trend .. though the study has the word "Trender" in the name)

2 - the secondary signal is based on momentum of the fast length EMA. and is only Up or Down. (i would usually take Up position in a green channel or down position in Red channels, so maintain direction with the primary momentum)


there are many other settings we built-into the study to play with and customize for improved visualization. better visual = better decision.. you see in the screenclip how many "personalities" we can get with different options. from settings you can do anything from hiding all elements and leaving only the secondary signals, to fully using it as your trading system, if your system is built around ATR or BB, with the added benefit of the momentum signal. you can combine with other studies you have (i'd suggest a trend following study) for a compact system that won't require lower plots (beside volume if you need it).
the calculation/CPU load this study requires isn't that much, even though it looks packed.

Settings to change length, Fast, Channel Type, the factor for the channel (for BB this would be the StDev, for Keltner the ATR factor, for Shifted EMA's the percentage...etc) - Hide the channel shading, hide/show the lines (the EMA's, the mid-channel, channel bands..etc)


there's an aggressiveness factor built in that we can set - basically this is like saying, "if the Fast Trend is decreasing and becomes less than 10%, this is as good as a negative momentum, and i want to trigger a signal to go short". Leave at 0 until you test this in your own setup and get comfortable with it.

the code is commented, and i'd ask to please keep this study only within BMT as it took a lot of work.

feedback appreciated, happy trading.

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.

KR_SMI_v2: based on Stochastic Momentum Index (SMI) for ToS 5 *
if you use a Momentum study to identify swings, or start/end of a price move, you may like this one.
in KR_SMI, i try to improve the visulaization and signal of ToS's Stochastic Momentum Index

1. i didn't like that it uses double EMA, so i changed that into a single-time EMA.

2. K Period, d Period .. confusing.. in reality SMI tries to identify the recent movement compared to a longer-term price shift. so i changed that into Look_Back_Period and Length

3. Signal is generated thru a crossing with a slower/smoothed EMA of SMI line. in reality, we can see the change of SMI line trend using colors and get an earlier signal for swings or price move shifting direction (Green = momentum up, red = momentum down, Yellow = possible swing detected)

4. crossing the zero line means a lot (momentum reversing). this is ignored in original indicator. so we added a zero line. Overbought/oversold are at +/-50% by default - but you can change that

screenshot shows how this compares vs the classic SMI in ToS

Best used together with a trend following indicator for a confirmed entry/exit signals.

just realized all the indicators i posted are optimized for dark chart background color. they will look ugly on light-color charts. sorry for that.
beware of a bug in ToS, when you use Inertia or Hull smoothing with AddChartLabel, and you try to enter a lower smoothing value in study settings, the indicator calc behaves erratically. if that happens, remove/re-add the study to your chart. i just found out about that and will report it.


as usual, please do not share outside BMT.
All feedback welcome,
RedK
