SFX Trend or Range

971 4 94
A remarkably simple but very useful indicator. Earlier and clearer signals than ADX or VHF. More positive ranging signal than any other indicators.

Aqua = ATR
Orange = StdDev
Red = Smoothed Moving Average of the StdDev


Usage:

Any pair, any time frame. Best used on majors and M15 period or higher

  • Orange breaks above Red when below Aqua = Trend building
  • Orange breaks below Red when above Aqua = Trend exhausting
  • Orange below Red when below Aqua = Ranging/Sideways market

very nice indicator, thanks. i tried to add something:


study(title="SFX Trend or Range", shorttitle="SFX TOR")

ATR_len = input(12, title="ATR Length")
StdDev_len = input(12, title="StdDev Length")
SMA_len = input(3, title="SMA Length")


ATR = atr(ATR_len)
StdDev = stdev(close, StdDev_len)
SMA = sma(StdDev, SMA_len)


plot(ATR, linewidth=2, color=aqua, title="ATR")
plot(StdDev, color=orange, title="StdDev")
plot(SMA, color=red, title="SMA")


IDU = (cross(StdDev,SMA) ? StdDev>SMA : na) and StdDev<ATR
IDU2 = (cross(StdDev,SMA) ? StdDev>SMA : na) and StdDev>ATR
IDD = (cross(SMA,StdDev) ? StdDev<SMA : na) and StdDev>ATR
IDD2 = (cross(SMA,StdDev) ? StdDev<SMA : na) and StdDev<ATR

plotshape(IDU, style=shape.triangleup, location=location.bottom, color=lime, transp=0, offset=0, text='Trend') //iceblue up
plotshape(IDD, style=shape.triangledown, location=location.bottom, color=fuchsia,transp=0, offset=0, text='Exhaust') //pink down
plotshape(IDD2, style=shape.triangledown, location=location.top, color=yellow,transp=0, offset=0, text='Sideways')

correct it

"IDD = (cross(SMA,StdDev) ? StdDev<SMA : na) and StdDev>ATR"

i dont understand, i am trying to right code but i cant.
my last try:

IDD = (cross(SMA,StdDev) ? StdDev<SMA : na) and StdDev > ATR
