# Pekipek's PPO Divergence BETA

5889 32
Beta divergence indicator, you can exchange the Price Percentage Oscillator ( PPO ) for any oscillator. You can play around with the look-back period if you want to use long term divergences.
WARNING:
Because its impossible to make the look-back period of the lowest/highest functions dynamic, the indicator can plot divergences sometimes at places where there are none, however in my experience this does not occur so much. Also it is impossible to plot isolated lines, so its hard to visually see which divergence(s) exactly is(are) being signaled. Once these features become possible I can really refine the indicator.

orange dot = bearish, purple dot = bullish
What do cyan and red dots represent?

bottoms/tops
I really like your indicator. When their is new "circle" posted, is it added to chart at end of a bar or at end of the next bar?
vinsoj1
That's good, hope it will help you in making decisions! I'm not sure what you mean, the divergence dot is added to the indicator immediately once a divergence is located. And that is based on tops/bottoms in price and oscilator (PPO), Could you explain a bit more detailed what you mean?
pekipek
In looking at various price charts with your indicator, I see the past history of the indicator's noting divergence. However, I have not been able to discern when a divergence changes. In other words, does a new signal occur in real time (within a given bar), or does a new signal show up at the end of a bar? Or, does the signal show up in a post-dated manner - does today's new high/low mean that yesterday's bar was the change in trend?

I have tried to read through the script to understand the logic. While I understand the PPO indicator and the concept of divergence, I must admit the script language is not easy for me to follow. Any thoughts you could share about the assumptions regarding the indicator are appreciated. Thanks!
vinsoj1
Think I get what you mean now. A signal definitely can occur in real time, but as you know to determine whether a bar is a top (or bottom), the bar next of the potential top must complete. In this way it is possible that at some point during the lifetime of the bar right after the potential top, this bar was lower then the potential top, making the potential top look like a real top. The indicator will plot the divergence dot at that point. However if, during the lifetime of the the bar right after the potential top (now looking like a real top), this bar goes higher, the divergence gets cancelled and the indicator will repaint (delete) the divergence dot.

The indicator does not repaint if the divergence gets immediately cancelled 2 bars after the top ( so 2 bars after the top the price goes higher and the divergence does not play out).

Sometimes, the top in price will be a tiny bit later the than the top in the PPO, that's what the:

delayedlow = priceMins and barssince(oscMins) < 3 ? low : na
delayedhigh = priceMax and barssince(oscMax) < 3 ? high : na

variables are for. So if the top in PRICE is less than 3 bars after the top in PPO, it is still able top plot such a divergence. If it is 3 or more bars later, it is not a divergence in my opinion. If you think otherwise you could change that, but I think you will get weird results.

Hope this helps! If not keep shooting.
Nice indicator! This is very useful. Thanks pekipek
Drat
You're welcome, hope it will be of help and make u rich!
can someone help me to about how can i instal this indicator to my metatrader?
That's the most awesome indicator for me so far: thanks a lot pekipek
Kilgore
Youre welcome!
In spite of some deficiencies yourself point out , I find this indicator very useful as regards changing trends. Thank you in the name of the chartist community.

Another question pekipek: in my chart, apart from cyan & red , I get GRAY dots (no orange nor purple) . Is this standard? or something abnormal to my chart ?. If normal, how should I interpret my gray dots?. Thanks in advance
javier.gonzalezgarcia.3388
I have no clue why you get gray dots, you shouldn't :P. Also if you combine the PPO divergence with PPO Histogram and Stochastics divergences and they all 3 point to a divergence at the same bar, you will get very high probability reversals
pekipek
By abrakadabra reasons I have back my dots purple/orange (mysteries of Technics) . Thank you for your PPO suggestions, I'll try it and through it, to confirm if longer lookbacks periods (100 vs 55) really perfom better
Nice one...thanks for sharing whit us
I hate to sound stupid but how does a person create a Alert when the tops and bottom dots show up?
I know how to create alerts but when i do on this one , tops/greater than/.99 it does not work.. any ideas?
binaryking
you might have worked it out in meantime, but >0 should do the trick.
is there a way to know in advance what closing price at the end of day will trigger a buy or sell dot?
Fantastic indicator - v clever - esp when used with the usual other stuff - i use smoother 3 - no line and tops/btms as columns - so pure signal
Many Thanks for sharing
Question - have you considered turning into a 'Strategy' on TV?
LuckyMouse
I made a strategy, in case you're still interested:
Very nice Indicator ! simple to use for beginners.....!
Huge fan of this indicator, Pekipek. Thanks!

I did a version with alerts and slightly remixed visuals:
scarf
Thanks Pekipek ... probably can you update and bring this out of BETA? :) ... Hey Scarf .. thanks for sharing your code.
scarf
@scarf, Run into this indicator, looks promising. Question I have, does it repaint?
An excellent indicator, simple and true. With many thanks.
This is great. I use it ontop of UCS Murrey's Math Oscillator, as well as CMW's Vix Fix.
Would it be possible to program your study to indicate at what closing price the study will trigger a change?

Example: would like to know in advance what the closing price would need to be when your average indicator crossed its threshold level for direction change.
Is there any possible way to have this coded for MT4 ?
so it repaints ... that basically it, the signals im seeing arent there in real time
