# Indicators: Hurst Bands and Hurst Oscillator

9822 26
These 2 indicators are derivative work from Jim Hurst's book - "The Magic of Stock Transaction Timing".

The bands are % bands around a median that gets calculated according to Hurst's formula. The outer bands (called ExtremeBands) signify extreme overbought/oversold conditions. Inner bands signify potential pullback points. As you can see, they also act as dynamic S/R levels.

The oscillator bands match the bands overlaid on price, so you will get an excellent indication of where the price is gonna do by using the oscillator along with the bands. Note that Hurst Oscillator can be used separately too, there is no technical dependency on Hurst Bands.

You, Sir, are my new personal hero! Seems to work really good on lower timeframes. Be assured that i definitely would give more than just one thumb up if i could :)

Thx :)
Very nice tool:) we feel spoiled here- great work

Night-mode, engage!

haha, thanks! so much easier to read!

:) You may want to change the colors of the extreme (outermost) bands.
LazyBear
Cool. Changing them to white gives it almost & and embossed look.
grahvity
Nice. As @StephenShaffer mentioned, very pleasing on eyes.
niiiiice

Just click on the arrow symbol on the top right of the chart. Then click on "make it mine", this will open the cart in a new window and there you can also view the code by clicking on the ()-symbol in the top left of the chart.
Also note: Adblock seems to produce problems with the share button on this site, so check that if it doesnt work.
nice! > thank you!

Bands appear, but not the oscillator. The links from your site for the Bands and Oscillator point to the same place. Is there something missing hear? Thanks..

Just click on the share symbol on the left of the chart (last symbol). Then click on "make it mine", this will open the chart in a new window and there you can also view the code by clicking on the ()-symbol near the indicator names.
LazyBear
@LazyBear, Please none of this works!!! I cant find out how to get the oscillator...No option to share and When i click on the brackets the source code for OSC. is not there. Someone please post the code.
Do you have script for hurst oscillator? The above script only plots the bands....Thank you
Got it...Thanks So much!
Can you help in thinkscript translation for the following? CMA = not na(dPrice) ? sma(dPrice, abs(length)) : nz(CMA) + (nz(CMA) - nz(CMA)) Thanks.
syracusepro
its a transaltion from thinkscript to pinescript but dosnt work couse it cant look in the future like the original code http://indexswingtrader.blogspot.gr/2012/07/hurst-channels-and-oscillator.html
glaz
Thanks.
Works well with 30 60min and 1 hour chart.. fails for 5m and dialy chart
