Indicator: WaveTrend Oscillator [WT]

112875 110 19539
WaveTrend Oscillator is a port of a famous TS/MT indicator. More info:

When the oscillator is above the overbought band (red lines) and crosses down the signal (dotted line), it is usually a good SELL signal. Similarly, when the oscillator crosses above the signal when below the Oversold band (green lines), it is a good BUY signal.

I have marked some cross-overs in the above chart. As you can see, they are *not* the only useful signals WT generates. Try it on your instrument and let me know what you think.

Lovely indicator. Great strengths when I'm manually trading forex hourly. I'd like to know if it's possible to add this to an autotrade through TradingView or setup an alert such as: signal bar on close if green line below red dot; signal bar close if green line above red dot. Not the upper and lower static dots/lines, but the live ones.
For those wanting to create alerts I finally figured this out. In alert select wavetrend crossing wavetrend. Then you need to select the 6th plot in the list for each box.
@mbpage, why the 6th plot?

@scurds, it generates an alert when the lines cross wt1 crosses wt2.
@mbpage, thanks. Which instruments and timeframes do you think it works best??

this is amazing indicator. I am going to convert it into tradestation.
@LazyBear What does the area plot show? I understand the two lines, but the thing in the middle?

@jpshots, The area plot is the difference between the oscillator and the signal. It takes positive values when the oscillator is above the signal and negative values when the oscillator is below the signal.

@frisendar, I see, Thanks!
@LazyBear Why can't I load this in the Strategy tester tab even though I applied this to my chart already?
