Indicators: Twiggs Money Flow [TMF] & Wilder's MA [WiMA]

TMF             is a CMF             ( Chaikin Money Flow ) variation that addresses some of the gaps in the original indicator. More info: http://www.incrediblecharts.com/indicators/twiggs_money_flow.php

TMF             uses true range, rather than daily Highs minus Lows. Also, uses Wilder's MA rather than SMA/EMA.

Since I had to write Wilder's MA (WiMA) for TMF             , I have published that also as a separate indicator. WiMA is like EMA , but with a different "alpha" value.

Good work man. I had actually programmed the Twiggs Money Flow a Month or so ago for a developer that uses it we will be bringing on board. He uses the Twiggs Money Flow in all of his work.

Here is a version I coded...same results but I found a code that uses a "Threshold Line". I found it useful for filtering out the chop...and creating a rule for Bullish and Bearish Divergences.

Hi Chris,
I just was directed to your code on Twiggs Money Flow by someone else when I requested it be programmed. I notice it's not an indicator but a script. How do I put it on a chart so I can use it as a script. I'm not a programmer and am not sure how to add it to my scripts that I save for use over again.
Thanks for your help.
Surfdude, Chris

I just kept looking and found how to do it on another post you did. Thx! One thing I was wondering was how you got the white line around the histogram. It doesn't seem to come up on mine.
Thanks

I figured it out again - change my background to black instead of white!
Thanks again for the indicator.

Chris on this line: wv=volume+(volume*0), why the multiplication be zero? Thanks.

Cool, Chris. Miss you around here.

Very nice!
ToS has a really nice indicator called the "BalanceOfMarketPower" indicator which I set to exponential 21 period. Any chance you can program a script for this indicator?
Reply
Thanks.

I already have posted a BalanceOfPower indicator -
Indicator: Balance Of Power
. Is this the one you are referring to?

I don't think so. It doesn't match with the one on ToS.

The only BalanceOfPower I see in TOS is this - http://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/charting/studies/studies-library/A-B/BalanceOfMarketPower

This is what the TV indicator link I posted above does. You can configure the MA (it does SMA, but you can change it to EMA) period in the option dialog.


More explanation on this indicator:

If this is not what you are referring to, probably it is a custom indicator. Please post more info on that (links, images, ...) here. Thx.

This is what I have on ToS:

When I try to set the same parameters on TV, it's giving me a different chart.

I see what ToS is doing (they are only plotting EMA)...I have updated the code to do that. Here you go: http://pastebin.com/9UEDCf86

Here's BOP (ToS version of visualization) on AAPL H4:
