DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator can be used to identify short-term tops and bottoms. This is a breadth indicator. STO is designed to be calculated using either issues or volume, I will post a follow up indicator that makes use of volume.
You can read about the interpretation of the signals (& gotchas) in the link below.
I have added support for NYSE /...
This a modified MAC-Z using Z-VWAP. Since this uses VWAP, the signals are derived indirectly from both volume and price action.
I have also included a way to smooth MACZ-VWAP, you can enable it via options page.
Note that this will not work on any FX pair, as volume is not available.
Z-distance from VWAP:...
Custom Pivots Indicator - Plots Yearly, Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, and Daily Levels.
I created this indicator because when you have multiple Pivots on one chart (For Example The Monthly, Weekly, And Daily Pivots), the only way to know exactly what pivot level your looking at is to color ALL S1 Pivots the same color, but create the plot types to look different. ...
By request this is an updated version of the "PullBack Trading Tool": removes experimental "OCC" channel, added option to display ribbons or just single moving average lines, added alert arrows for "PB" exits, added alertcondition for TV alarm subsystem, added some extract options for Pivot points and general cleanup of code.
This calculates normal distance of price from VWAP. This is a mean reverting idea (something like ZScore), but using both "volume" and "close".
Useful for finding OB/OS areas and potential turning points.

I noticed I have switched the plot names. Histo shd be the MACD and DMACD shd be the Signal.
Replace lines 16 & 17 with these to get the correct names. NOTE that no functionality is affected, just the names.

This is a famous indicator I have seen used by many Forex traders in MT4 platform. This indicator uses the difference between EMA of "close" and EMA of "open" to form the oscillator lines (not just a convergence/divergence calculation between EMA of "close")
Current market state is determined by which histogram is above zero line. For more confirmation, wait for...
Market Direction Indicator (MDI), by Donald Lambert, is an extension of simple moving average cross over systems. Series of price cross over points are determined to derive MDI.
Note that the short/long lengths will differ between instruments. They need to be tuned properly.
I have added an option to specify a "cutoff" parameter. When MDI is in the cutoff zone...
This oscillator is derived from Absolute Strength Index, originally developed by Tudor Marcelin (Art Invest).
I made it an oscillator mainly to make it easy to identify the divergences and price-flows. There is not much documentation available online for Absolute Strength Index afaik, lets hope Mr.Tudor comes across this and provides us a detailed writeup...
This is a port of a famous MT4 indicator, as requested by user @maximus71. This indicator uses MACD/BB to track trend direction and strength. Author suggests using this indicator on 30mins.
Explanation from the indicator developer:
"Various components of the indicator are:
Dead Zone Line: Works as a filter for weak signals. Do not trade when the red or green...
I am a big fan of Constance Brown. Her book "Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals" is an absolute classic (get the 2nd edition).
I have included here 2 of the indicators she uses in all her charts.
This is a formula Ms Brown developed (Cardwell may not agree!) to identify divergence failures with...
Relative Volume Indicator
RVI is a support-resistance technical indicator developed by Melvin E. Dickover. Unlike many conventional support and resistance indicators, the Relative Volume Indicator takes into account price-volume behavior in order to detect the supply and demand pools. These pools are marked by "Defended Price...
This indicator is a composite of MACD and Z-Score (requested by @ChartAt). The general idea is that counter-trend component of the Z-score is used to adjust/improve the trend component of the MACD. The advantage is that it is a more accurate and “assumption-free” and can more accurately describe how a market or stock actually works in a given time frame.
As part of my "Ehler's Indicators week", here's one more.
CG Oscillator, by John Ehlers, provides a smoothed, essentially zero lag oscillator for identifying market turning points. The "CG" in the name of the oscillator refers to "Center Of Gravity" of the prices over the window of observation.
Entry/Exit are based on the osc/signal crossovers. Enabling the...
