Here is a solution to find entry points to trade. This indicator highlights price sections with low choppiness
, where both the ADX
( Average Directional Index
) indicator shows strong movement (up or down!) in the price and a customized Money Flow
indicator (which uses only the change of the volume
not the change of the price, hence a Volume
Flow indicator), also shows volatility
is present. Using higher filter values than the default setting of "30" reduces the noise, but also shows less 'action sections'. Vice versa using values lower than "30" increases the amount and duration of action sections which are shown.
The "action section" indicator does not show the direction if the price is going up or down. It shows if there is enough action worthy the time to trade (lower odds of a neutral sideways trend). Therefore in addition a Heikin-Ashi based price change indicator can optionally be plotted, which shows the actual direction of the price.
Action Section, High Volume Volatility
& Low Price Choppiness
This indicator works only on charts which have volume data.
