Good Skript,

kann you tell me what settings to adjust if I want to use this for monthly credit spreads?

I am confused about something, does the setup bar have to touch the bottom or top band on a pullback in order to generate a signal? Also, what kind of price channels are these with what kind of lookback period? Thanks.

I appreciate you coding the strategy, I would still like to fully understand it and be able to see what it is I'm looking at

Watch Steve's Youtube free videos
I've watched them...they start repeating because he always posts nearly the exact same video

Thanks for all the work you do (that is NOT sarcasm)

I am unable to find this strategy in the list of indicators Sir. How do I get the same?
Is there an equivalent to the same? Thanks and Kind Regards To you.

Its under indicators, Not under strategies
ucsgears, do you have a version of this indicator with the alerts built in? That would help me a great deal. thanks!

You don't need a special indicator to set alerts. You can use the same indicator. Select the indicator, then from the dropdown, select trigger. Value > 0. That will be your alert Settings.

Select what you want in the alert.
