[KL] Relative Volume Strategy

DojiEmoji Updated   
This strategy will Long when:
  • Confirmation #1: when volume is relatively high
  • Confirmation #2: during periods of price consolidation (See <Note 1>)
It exits when either (a) stop loss limit is reached, or when (b) price actions suggest trend is bearish.

<Note 1> Measuring price volatility to assume consolidation:
For each candlestick, we quantify price volatility by referring to the value of standard deviations (2x) of closing prices over a look-back period of 20 candles. This is exactly what the Bollinger Band (“BOLL”) indicates by default.

Knowing the value of standard deviation (2x) of prices (aka the width of lower/upper BOLL bands), we then compare it with ATR (x2) over a user-defined length (can be configured in settings). Volatility is considered to be low, relatively, when the standard deviation (x2) of prices is less than ATR (2x).
Release Notes:
Bug fixed (exit message showing "stop loss" or "take profit")
Release Notes:
Improved conditional statements to determine bearish engulfing candlesticks.
Release Notes:
- improved price action indicators
- modified entry condition, requires the current candlestick to be strong in support, or at least not work as bare minimum (as per price action indicators)
Release Notes:
Fixed bugs, and refactored codes.
Release Notes:
Values of parameters can now be further customized in settings.
