Firefly Oscillator [LazyBear]

This is a modified version of a public Amibroker indicator, called Firefly.

I disabled the additional smoothing (you can enable it via options page) and updated the visual rendering (simple 3D look, histo, bar colors et al). Also, have added an option to show enclosing BB.

You can trade this like any other oscillator -- 80/20 OB/OS levels, divergences, ...

Here's a chart showing some possible customizations that are supported:

Do let me know what you guys think.

can you make a firefly version of IMACD

Firefly version? Can you give me more details?
Ribbons on both up and down with IMACD

Lemme try, though it is not gonna be a simple visual enhancement (since the signals wont align well).

Thank you very much Lazybear! This indicator made it through my benchmark with an "A". Firefly gives really good signals as you can see here:

ZeroLagEMA is very aggressive and distorting the signal too much:

Bitcoin could be at the bottom here in May 2015, if enough people feel the same way:

Better to wait for an uptick.

YW. Glad to hear it paused your tests :)

For quick entries/exits, make sure Double smoothing is OFF.
