The Braid Filter indicator was initially made by Robert Hill and published in the Stocks and Commodities Magazine in 2006. This version of the Braid Filter expands upon Hill's original one by adding much more customization and tweaking abilities. Instead of using a simple moving average to calculate the Braid Filter, this version allows you to choose between 43 different moving average calculation types to suit your needs. The original also just used the close price for calculating its moving averages, however, this version allows you to specify different source prices, including the close, median (hl2), typical (hlc3), mean (ohlc4), and weighted (hlcc4) prices. This version also allows you to edit the lookback period for the average true range calculation. It also renamed some arbitrarily named input fields to make them more readable and understandable. Finally, it includes multi-timeframe support and the ability to color bars based on signals.
The Braid Filter calculates 3 average prices:
- A short-term average close price
- A medium-term average open price
- A long-term average close price
It then finds the minimum and maximum of these three average prices. Then it calculates the difference between the highest and lowest average price. This difference is what the histogram shows. Then the filter line is calculated based on the ATR.
This indicator can be used to determine the start of trends. It can also be used to determine when the market is consolidating.
When the bar turns green, the average close price is greater than the average open price, indicating bullish momentum. In addition, if the histogram is green, the difference between the highest average price and the lowest average price is high enough to surpass the filter line. This means that not only is there bullish momentum, but there is stronger than average bullish momentum. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the market will trend higher. When the histogram turns red, this situation plays out except in reverse, indicating that the market will trend lower.
If the histogram color is gray, the difference between the highest average price and the lowest average price used to calculate the Braid Filter is meager. Since the highest and lowest average is close together, the price is unlikely to travel far in one direction. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the market is consolidating when this happens.
HOW DO I READ THIS INDICATOR
The signals between the histogram and filter are calculated as follows:
- If the histogram is above the filter line and the fast average close price is greater than the average open price, the histogram is colored green, indicating bullish conditions.
- If the histogram is above the filter line and the fast average close price is less than the average open price, the histogram is colored red, indicating bearish conditions.
- If the histogram is below the filter line, the histogram is colored gray, indicating neutral conditions.
Added the option to show buy/sell signals on the indicator window
