Mean Reversion Channel - (fareid's MRI Variant)

Description :
Mean Reversion Channel objective, based on Mean Reversion theory ( everything has a tendency to revert back to its mean), is to help visualizing:
Inner Channel -> Dynamic Support and Resistance
Outer Channel -> Overbought/Oversold Zone which may signal consolidation phase or potential reversal due to unsustainable move

Details on some of the filtering type used for mean calculation can be read in Ehlers Technical Papers: "Swiss Army Knife Indicator" and/or his book "Cybernetics Analysis for Stock and Futures"

These study scripts was built only to test/visualize an idea to see its viability and if it can be used to optimize existing strategy.
Any ideas to further improve this indicator are welcome :)

@combotrading, hmm plotting the zone based on htf might not be a good idea especially when the chart is on auto scale mode.

Although i might be able to come up with something close to that, maybe next week :)

Thanks for your input and Happy New Year!

@combotrading, hello! I added the HTF features, feel free to check it out and give feedback if you have any idea to further improve it :)
A very nice indicator, thank you very much. Will probably use it in my long-term investing as an additional tool. For me this seems to be much better than bollinger bands, because they always stick heavily to the price action, this indicator here doesn't, it rather follows the price very smoothly. The only problem I have is that sometimes when relatively big crashes occur, the bottom part of the indicator tends to fall low, sometimes very low (on daily crypto timeframes or weekly/montly for stocks, as they have lower daily volatility), which wrecks the log scale, sometimes goes even to 0 and below 0. I guess I will have to use manually adjust the Y axis more often. But other than that, great work man.

@ZipperZbieracz, thanks for your kind word and input. Yes the idea is to have channels that can act as an ‘anchor’ to the price rather than reacting to it.

For crypto, im not trading crypto so i didnt test extensively on it, but i’ll make sure to look into it

As for weekly/monthly stock chart, its a known issue but i initially dont put too much emphasis on it because I rarely use such high timeframe, and the issue mostly because by default im using 200 bar data and many stocks dont have that long history data. Im already working on some handling for that, meantime, as a workaround, u can try change the setting to use 100 bar ema and see if its working out for u.

Thanks again and let me know if you encounter any other problem :)
