First proposed by Giorgos E. Siligardos, "Leader" leads normal , especially when significant trend changes are about to take place. This has the following features:
- It is similar to in smoothness.
- It can be plotted along with in the same window using the same scaling.
- It has the ability to lead at critical situations
For detailed discussion on the various divergence patterns, refer to the PDF I have linked in the "More Info" below.
I have provided an option to plot and signal on the same pane. You can enable/disable them via options page.
For Pinescript coders: Try enabling histo on this to compare with normal histo :)
