Quickfingers Luc's Base Breaking Indicator v2

Overview of Features

This indicator attempts to implement Quickfingers Luc’s (QFL) Base Breaking trading methodology(1). It will monitor the chart price action and identify bases as they form and provide alert notifications for when bases and/or layers are cracked and respected.

This indicator is designed to locate pivot patterns and validate them to ensure they qualify as valid bases according to QFL’s trading principles by analyzing the percent price drop/bounce, volume and other settings to help you customize it to your chart. It will switch to new bases as they are identified and validated, thus there's the potential for bases to not be respected because it has switched to a new base.

It supports up to nine (9) layers with crack and respected alerts with chart X-Cross shapes to help you visualize the events.

Lastly, the indicator creates additional data points that are viewable in the data window panel, displaying the following metrics:
  • Bases Created
  • Bases Cracked
  • Bases Respected
  • Success Rate %
  • Median Drop %
  • Median Bounces %

Usage Information

The indicator can be applied to any chart at any time frame, but QFL principles advise to use at least 1 hour resolution for best results.
