Dav-o meter (public)

I decided to make this formerly invite only script public (you can find the invite only version here If you are part of the invite only you don't need to change scripts. I will push improvements first on the invite only script but in time it will come to this version as well.

I would love to know your ideas and thoughts on how this indicator can be improved, so feel free to give any feedback.
Remember to give it a thumbs up if you like it.

This script is based upon Davinci's davo meter and his original script, which searches for W's and M's in price, OBV, and Willy.
Although the original script is elegant, a W or M has to occur within 5 bars.
This script has removed those limitations.

It took me several different approaches to find a good solution. For the most part because of the lack of any real debugging tool in Pine script.
Let me know what you think, because I feel like I need tone down the number of options so it is easier to use.
If you have any questions, or things you would like to see different please contact me at TRI.

Have fun playing and goofing around with it!


How it works
Now, trading is more of an art form than a science and this indicator is no exception.
When talking about M's and W's, it begs the question: what exactly counts as a W or M?
My personal experience is that for a W to count as such, it has to adhere to the following rules:

1. A 'W' has 5 points, A, B, C, D and E E
2. Point A can be any point C /
3. Point B should be lower than A A / \ /
4. Point C should be higher than B \ / D
5. Point D should be lower than C, but higher than B B
6. Point E should be higher than C

1. A 'M' has 5 points, A, B, C, D and E B
2. Point A can be any point / \ D
3. Point B should be higher than A A \ / \
4. Point C should be lower than B C \
5. Point D should be higher than C, but lower than B E
6. Point E should be lower than C


Script input parameters
You can use the following indicators to search for W's or M's:
- price (close)
- OBV
- Willy
- RSI
- MFI

For each of these indicators you set the following options:
- Use: whether you want to use it
- The maximum width: over how many bars a W / M is allowed to form
- The maximum offset: how many bars back a W / M is allowed to form
- Strict: when not set, rule 5 (see 'How it works') changes: point D no longer has to be above B (for W), and no longer has to be below B (for M)
- Length: length of the indicator, for example a 14 bar RSI

Other options:
- Period: you can limit the period for backtesting. Useful to identify under what market conditions the script works best.

Apr 13
Release Notes: v3.5.1
- Fixed a bug which prevented alerts from firing. Unfortunately, using concatenated strings in alerts prevents them from being fired even though they do show up on the chart.

My thanks go to pequet and grimmolf for finding and reporting this nuisance to me.

Release Notes: v3.5.2
- Fixed the alert bug which I thought had been fixed in 3.5.1, please use the settings as displayed here: https://imgur.com/a/1rSty7o (I've tested these extensively)

- Renamed 'davo short' and 'davo long' plot text into simply 'davo'

Does it enter at the open price of the candle or I have to wait for candle which got the signal to close and then enter?

@alvashivaprasad7, you don't have to wait to enter. As soon as the signal pops up you can enter.

@Hanuman108, when on a chart there is a button 'indicators' and then search for dav-o, add it and ... you're done. It's pretty easy when you know how. When you just get started TV is rather overwhelming. If you like this script, don't forget to add it to your favorites - and if you are so inclined - to give it a thumbs up. Welcome to TradingView and the trading community.
