I'm looking for an indicator that will measure the actual slope (in degrees) of an EMA. I am hoping that it will measure bar to bar and change real time as the EMA slope changes. Has anyone seen an indicator like this?

Thank you,
Mark

Looking for a MA Slope Box indicator which allows for some sort of display shift, once an angle is sharp enough.

In other words, I'd like to have the slope box either flash, or change highlight background color, once the slope passes a certain angle of degrees, so that I can notice it more quickly out of my peripheral vision.

Anybody know of something like that?

Thanks for the help!

Brooks

Hi Jeff,

No luck. But I'm still looking myself.

If I come across it, I'll let you know and would appreciate you doing the same if you have more luck than me.

All the best,
B

The MA Slope Multi has been showing the degree but I think it is off a bit. Anyway, here it is if you haven't seen it yet.



I use the Ultimate Draw tool and another protractor to measure angles. I will keep checking the MASlope that i just downloaded and maybe see if someone can tweak it or turn int into a hybrid.

The following is a new a more accurate indicator.

I'm trying to use this indicator into a simple strategy ... nonetheless, to construct the indicator itself, you need a gazelion of inputs, as seen below:

public MASlopeMulti MASlopeMulti(BackgroundColorType283 backgroundColorType, int butterWorthFilterPoles1, int butterWorthFilterPoles2, double cVMAPeriodFactor1, double cVMAPeriodFactor2, int defaultBarColorOpacity, Color downBarColorDefault, Color fallingBarColor,
Color fallingBarOutlineColor, Color flatBarColor, int flatBarColorOpacity, Color flatBarOutlineColor, int gaussianFilterPoles1, int gaussianFilterPoles2, int jHLHEMATrend1, int jHLHEMATrend2, int jMAPhase1, int jMAPhase2, int kAMAFast1, int kAMAFast2, int kAMASlow1,
int kAMASlow2, int mA1Period, SlopeMA1Type283 mA1Type, int mA2Period, SlopeMA2Type283 mA2Type, int mAFallingSlopeThresholdMax, MALineColorType283 mALineColorType, MALineDashStyleType283 mALineDashStyleType, MALineDashStyle283 mALineFallingDashStyle,
MALineDashStyle283 mALineFlatDashStyle, MALineDashStyle283 mALineRisingDashStyle, int mALineWidthFalling, int mALineWidthFlat, int mALineWidthRising, MALineWidthType283 mALineWidthType, MAPriceTypes283 mAPriceType, int mARisingSlopeThresholdMin,
Color outLineBarColorDefault, PaintBarTrendType283 paintBarTrendType, PaintBarType283 paintBarType, Color panelBackColorFalling, Color panelBackColorFlat, int panelBackColorOpacity, Color panelBackColorRising, Color risingBarColor, Color risingBarOutlineColor,
bool showSlopeBox, uint slopeBoxNumber, Color slopeFontColorFalling, Color slopeFontColorFlat, Color slopeFontColorRising, DisplaySlopeLocation283 slopeLocation, SlopePrecisionType283 slopePrecisionSelect, SLRType283 slopeResponseMode, SlopeTagText283 slopeTagTextMode,
System.Drawing.Font slopeTextFont, double sRLinesTicksDiff, int superSmootherFilterPoles1, int superSmootherFilterPoles2, int t3tCount1, int t3tCount2, double t3vFactor1, double t3vFactor2, int trendBarColorOpacity, Color upBarColorDefault, string userSlopeTagText,
UserSlopeTextLocation283 userTextLocation, int vMAVolatility1, int vMAVolatility2)


I was wondering, could an empty constructor be added ... that would take default values, perhaps except the two EMA input values ... otherwise the indicator is not too easy to be re-used in a strategy.

thx
