Here is the indicator code...


RSqueeze.cs

crossing fingers!

So, I'd like to go through the entire document to take a look at the various elements, examine why they are included and how they are working.

This section I thought was especially interesting. It looks like the indie is looking at four pairs of fib length Gaussian filters. It looks like it subtracts the longer value from the shorter value in each of the pairs then averages the sum of differences and multiplies by 1000.

That, I believe , is referred to as momentum. I think it creates the histogram part of the zero line. What do you see?

@avardan

wldman trade logic from a nice entry this morning. On the pic it does look like a confluence as opposed to a series of non-colinear indicators. That is sometimes the case and sometimes I prefer a specific order or that these two MUST agree. The "method" lays the groundwork for evaluation. The specific trade decision is always based on PA and it is always discretionary.

Hi @wldman,

I trade forex off 15 minute candle bars and have been looking at moving to Heiken Ashi bars. Can I ask why you use them and what differences you see between the two. I also use a MACD for divergences and can see that HA bars and this indi may sit well together?

Thanks in advance

know thyself

Hi Mokodo

I applied HA bars as a visual measure of trend persistency. They are synthetic bars and adjusting to that did take some time. I was looking for a measure of trade side eligibility that could color the price bars. I prefer the HA and have adjusted their use intramethod. There is also a similar indicator that will color a standard price bar based on the HACO calculation...anaheikenashi color bars...or something like that.

That thing that looks like a MACD is four pairs of fib based Gaussian filters but IMO you are correct in the point that those items might work together.

Hope that helps...see attached docs.

Dan
