Trendflex - Another new Ehlers indicator

Source: Stocks and Commodities V38

Hooray! Another new John Ehlers indicator!
John claims this indicator is lag-less and uses the SPY on the Daily as an example.
This indicator is a slight modification of Reflex, which I have posted here
I think it's better for Stocks and ETFs than Reflex since it factors in long trends. It tends to keep you in winning trades for a long time.

I believe this indicator can be used for entries or exits, potentially both.

Entry
1. Entering Long positions at the pivot low points (Stocks and ETFs)
2. Entering Long when the Reflex crosses above the zero lines (Stocks, ETFs, Commodities )

Exit
1. Exiting Long positions at a new pivot high point (Stocks and ETFs)
2. Exiting Long when the Reflex crosses below the zero lines (Stocks, ETFs, Commodities )

In this example, I place a Long order on the SPY every time the Reflex crosses above the zero level and exit when it crosses below or pops my stop loss, set at 1.5 * Daily ATR.
2/3 Wins
+16.05%

Let me know in the comment section if you're able to use this in a strategy.
Release Notes: 1. Added filter so you can tweak what is considered a "Trend". Default value of 1
2. Changed default plotting style to "Columns"
Release Notes: Final aesthetic changes.
