RSI chop filter

This demonstrates how you might filter your signals using RSI , but the same technique could be applied to Stochastic RSI and any other oscillator that has overbought and oversold conditions.

Use it as a visual indicator to determine when to enter a trade:

Red = Chop zone (no trade)
Bright red = Tight chop (dear god stay away)
Green = Overbought or oversold (signals permitted)
Bright green = Crossing up/down (take the trade)

To apply the filter, simply add 'and not chop' after your conditions as seen in the commented out example.
Release Notes: Swapping out a variable. A minor improvement.
