Electrified

Local Limits

Displays recent higher highs, lower highs, lower lows, and higher lows as a collection of local limit indicators.

In its simplicity is a lot more powerful than might appear at first glance.

  • Does not rely on volatility calculation.
  • Can be linked together to create an objective view of recent support and resistance levels.
  • Makes current trends more visible.
  • Excellent for use as a trailing stop algorithm.

Parameters

  • Single Bar Sensitivity: True (default) reacts to individual bars. False only responds to the alignment of 2 bars.
  • Margin (1-5): Adds extra distance from higher lows and lower highs to reduce the sensitivity of broken trends.

Single indicators with configurable sources:
Local Limit Higher
Local Limit Lower
Release Notes: Eliminated buggy bar sensitivity option as the indicators work as intended without it.
Release Notes: Added trend change values for more reliable alerts.

ALERTING:
Simply select one of the the various "Change" values and alert on "Greater Than" or "Less Than" zero depending on which direction you want to detect.
Release Notes: Eliminated bar_index to avoid repainting.
Release Notes: Allow for % margin values.
Release Notes: Allow for specifying a fixed time-frame.
