Proprietary Indicators

available only for subscribers of the Premium Chat


The indicator checks trend direction on multiple timeframes. It send you alerts when trend changes direction on two timeframes. It suggests you entries for reversal trades and trades on pullbacks in direction of the trend.

On the chart you see two trend lines:

  • the thin trend line shows a minor support/resistance on the base timeframe (time frame of your chart in TradingView)
  • the thick trend line shows a major support/resistance calculated  on a higher timeframe

Floating text labels show exact current support/resistance on two timeframes:

  • You can change the way how those labels are drawn by changing input Move_Text_Labels_Right

"Buy" and "Sell" signals: change in direction of the trend

  • When the price is trending down both on a base and higher time frames the indicator draws “Buy” or “Sell” signals and change colors of candles. 
  • When the price is trending up on both, a base and higher time frames, the indicator colors candles in green color

  • When after a period when prices were trending down price breaks over a minor resistance (the thin red line ) and a bar closes over that minor resistance the trend switches from down (red color) to neutral ( grey color ).

  • When after a period when prices were trending up price breaks under a minor support (the thin line ) and a bar closes under that minor support the trend switches from up (green color) to neutral ( grey color )

  • When a new uptrend is detected signal “Buy” is drawn on the chart and Alert is generated

  • When a new downtrend is detected signal “Sell” is drawn on the chart and Alert is generated

Trending up market: How to trade it

  • when price moves higher in a strong trending move all pullbacks tend to get contained by the upper thin green support line.
  • in a strong uptrend the minor thin support lines is always over the thick major support lines
  • in majority of cases price drops to the minor support (the thin upper green line) and makes a doji candle or a candle with along tail testing the upper support

"Buy 2" signal: the indicator can catch those shallow pullbacks for you

The indicator can highlight for you those shallow pullbacks that find support at the upper minor support (the upper green thin line). To make the indicator draw green “Buy 2” signs when shallow pullbacks hit upper support double click any line drawn by the indicator and you will see the input menu:

  • Just double click the lines drawn by the indicator and you will see the input menu
  • Click a check box Allow_buy_PB
  • The indicator will start drawing green triangles Buy 2 and generate alerts when it detects minor pullbacks withing strong uptrends

  • In order not to miss a signal produced by the indicator you can set up alerts. It will take you only ten seconds but you will have to follow that sequence of steps for each stock and each time frame.
  • Step 1. Open a chart of the stock you want to set alerts for. Make sure you have the desired timeframe on your chart. Right click any area of the chart and you will get a pop up menu. Click “Add Alert”.

  • In that new menu click the very first window “Condition”, from the drop-down menu click the second line “Alerts(6,9,20,4)”
  • Step 3. After you click “the second line “Alerts(6,9,20,4)” (see the previous step above) you will get a menu for specific alerts  to choose from (see on the right).
  • for each type of signal you will need to set its own alert
