Kendall Rank Correlation Coefficient (alt)

This is a non-parametric correlation statistical test, which is less sensitive to magnitude and more to direction, hence why some people call this a "concordance test".

This indicator was originally created by Alex Orekhov (everget), if you like this one, please show the original author some love:
This version is extended by tartigradia (2022) to make it more readily useable:
* Update to pinescript v5
* Default compare to current symbol (instead of only fixed symbols)
* Add 1.0, 0.0 and -1.0 correlation levels lines.

This indicator plots both the Kendall correlation in orange , and the more classical parametric Pearson correlation in purple for comparison. Either can be disabled in the Style tab.
