This library contains Chikou Filter function to enhances functionality of Chikou-Span from Ichimoku Cloud using a simple trend filter.
Chikou is basically close value of ticker offset to close and it is a good for indicating if close value has crossed potential Support/Resistance zone from past. Chikou is usually used with 26 period.
Chikou filter uses a lookback length calculated from provided lookback percentage and checks if trend was bullish or bearish within that lookback period.
Bullish : Trend is bullish if Chikou span is above high values of all candles within defined lookback period. Bull color shows bullish trend .
Bearish: Trend is bearish if Chikou span is below low values of all candles within defined lookback period. This is indicated by Bearish color.
Reversal / Choppiness : Reversal color indicates that Chikou are swinging around candles within defined lookback period which is an indication of consolidation or trend reversal.
