  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hurst Channel

This is the Hurst Channel with the plot lines show checked so the don't check.
They can be changed to show in the study properties. See screenshot - check show plot located under UpperOuterBand box.

The parameters being used are for trading TF emini Russell. They parameters work on all charts. One can copy the code and create a new study to be used on stocks that these parameters dont' work.

Included is a modified Hurst Channel for doing evening evaluation of stocks, etc.

I downloaded your txt. file for Hurst Channel for TOS and then added it as a new study by using copy/paste. Unfortunately, the plot is not shown at all on the chart. What is wrong? Thanks

changing values of bands....

Hello - Have a pretty basic question regarding the Hust Channel Indicator attached. I have been analyzing and paper trading the channels in my TOS platform for the past week or so and I am wondering, do historical values of the bands change depending on the current price?

For example, last week I found a stock that had broken the lower band so I took the position, (paper trading). Now today, the stock has run up a fair amount and looking back on my Entry, the chart does not show any break of the lower band, (which was my reason for taking the trade).

I am wondering if these Hust Channels are somewhat similar to linear regression lines? In that if you plot a linear regression line today; and then compare this line with another linear reression line plotted next week, the slope of the lines will be dramatically different, (assuming the price of the stock changed)
