Here ya go HR

The basis or foundation chart type is based on the displayed Heiken Ashi indicator. Of all those that I could find this is the closest to what I actually want. IMO perfect would be a HACO study based on the 2008 article by Sylvain Vervoort, "Trading With the Heiken-Ashi Candelstick Oscillator". On that HACO study the addition of an adaptive dominant cycle period function would be trick...but just the ability to set "length" within HACO would be a ggod start.

Okay next..

One of the weaknesses of the specific HACO is that it is a "fiction" bar. The study draws a bar that is based on a formula using price data, it is NOT actual price data. One of the items needed in a better HACO is the ability to use the formula to color regular hloc price bars with the directional color. This is so you can view the actual high low open and especially the close of a bar. Price close is generally the "trigger" indie.

So I had to add "close dot"

modified bollinger...


generally serves as the trigger set up....or if you are honey badger aggressive it is confirmation on the final "unit".
I am not so much a rules based algo trader. I am at least an equal part discretionary. This is where the difficulty in explaining will likely arise. So pink bar close below the modified bands might say "sold" and green bar close above modified bands might be "bot with".

adaptive cci and ...

a knock off of the John Carter type squeeze indicator create the "panel two" view. There is ALL KINDS of non-colinear information being displayed there. A start would be to eye ball color changes and the "zero-line cross"

back up on the price panel...

are two iterations of a Fat Tails coded Keltner Channel. Fat Tails is a very talented, wise, and prolific contributor to these forums. The "channel" represents a price target for primary and sometimes secondary profits.

additionally...

I do use dvaluearea for support and resistance levels as well as floor trader pivots for the same. I would LOVE to use GOMI indicators in that role but I'm both too dense and too busy to give that the time it would need.

So, there you go HighRise, if you want to chat up the ideas, I will do my best.

If you have it, I'd be interested in reading the Vervoort article.

Also, do you have a link to the adaptive CCI indicator you mention later?
Edit: never mind that one, I found Fat Tails' port of all the Ehlers indicators.
