New Choppiness Index

This script tries to identify trending regions and ranging choppy regions.
Green areas are trends; Red areas are consolidation areas.
If you are a trend follower trader you should focus on green areas;
If you are a harmonic pattern trader you should focus on red areas.
I did not play with the parameters extensively, but as a rule of thumb higher parameters
helps on long term trades.
This tool seems to work better for major currencies pairs, presumably due to the
high exchanged volumes that reduces weird fluctuations.
Good set of parameters are:
(55, 9) the default ones, doing impressively well in EURUSD Daily;
(8, 5) doing well in GBPCHF Daily, short trades to be set at lower timeframes.

Happy trading,
