Hotch DMI+OBV+RSI Confluence

This Indicator uses the Relative Strength Index, On Balance Volume, and ADX to identify viable trading trends.

A quick description of what is on display:
1.) Green Triangle = OBV crossing over OBV MA
2.)Red Triangle = OBV Crossing under OBV SMA
3.) The background coloring between the RSI Oversold and Overbought Values has multiple conditions.
----It is green when the DI+ > DI-
----It is purple when the DI+ < DI-
----the brightness represents the ADX value. Darker areas(or more transparent) show a weak ADX value(4). Brighter (or less transparent) show a stronger ADX value(3)
5.) RSI and RSI moving average, including a divergence indicator.
6.) A histogram representing the normalized value of OBV-OBVMA to show changes in value while remaining readably in range on the chart with other indicators.

In the included chart screen shot is an example of an applicable strategy. This example is no guaranteed success and is also not the only strategy applicable to the indicator.

Release Notes:
Added a quick update to add a setting to scale the OBV histogram and keep it from attacking the rest of the indicator.
