Harmonic Patterns Based Trend Follower

Earlier this week, published an idea on how harmonic patterns can be used for trend following. This script is an attempt to implement the same.

🎲 Process
🎯 Derive Zigzag and scan harmonic patterns for last 5 confirmed pivots
🎯 If a pattern is found, highest point of pattern will become the bullish zone and lower point of the pattern will become bearish zone.
🎯 Since it is trend following method, when price reaches bullish zone, then the trend is considered as bullish and when price reaches bearish zone, the trend is considered as bearish .
🎯 If price does not touch both regions, then trend remains unchanged.
🎯 Bullish and bearish zone will change as and when new patterns are formed.

🎲 Note
Patterns are not created on latest pivot as last pivot will be unconfirmed and moving. Due to this, patterns appear after certain delay - patterns will not be real time. But, this is expected and does not impact the overall process.

When new pattern formed

When price breaks over the zones

🎲 Output
🎯 Patterns formed are drawn in blue coloured lines. Due to pine limitation of max 500 lines, older patterns automatically get deleted when new ones come.
🎯 Bullish Zone and Bearish Zone are plotted in green and red colours and the zone will change whenever new pattern comes along.
🎯 Bar colors are changed according to calculated trend. Trend value can be 1 or -1 based on the current trend. You can also find the value in data window.
🎯 For simplicity purpose, input option for selection of specific patterns are not provided and also pattern names are not displayed on the chart.
