Alright so this is a script I made by combining two existing ones and making a really cool discovery that has proven very useful.
You'll notice that there are two separate oscillators that are laid on top of each other. The background oscillator is my "Tip-and-Dip" oscillator which you can see here (will refer to this as TnD from here), and the foreground...
The "Momentum" in this indicator is smoothed out using linear regression. The Momentum is what is displayed on the indicator as a histogram, its purpose is obvious (to show momentum).
What is a Squeeze? A squeeze occurs when Bollinger Bands tighten up enough to slip inside of Keltner Channels .
This is interpreted as price is compressing and building up energy...
So this was something I planned on doing in the future, I knew it would take some time to put together but here it is, the Squeeze Pro 2 Overlays.
On my original Squeeze Pro, I had made several overlay indicators to go along with it, this time my goal was to combine all that stuff into a single indicator and allow the user to turn on and off the specific features...
Moving Average Convergence Divergence – MACD
The most popular indicator used in technical analysis, the moving average convergence divergence (MACD), created by Gerald Appel. MACD is a trend-following momentum indicator, designed to reveal changes in the strength, direction, momentum, and duration of a trend in a financial instrument’s price
This is my version of the updated classic indicator created by John Carter. I plan on adding a Squeeze Overlay script in the future that will pair with this one as well for additional signals.
So to break down the Squeeze, what it is, how it works, etc - you have to look at the components that make it up.
1. Bollinger Bands
2. Keltner Channels
This is the famous Squeeze Momentum Indicator made by @LazyBear in v4 version if someone wants to test some strategies, as the original code was in v2 version the code converter couldn't convert to v4.
The Squeeze-Expansion Indicator or SE indicator shows the contraction and expansion of the volatility of the price,
it does this by evaluating the movement of the standard deviations of the price.
This indicator can be use in a similar way to ADX and momentum indicators and can potentially keep you out of NO-TRADE zones
It can also be used as an exit indicator to...
This is the MACD of a stochastic OBV movement indicator, Squeeze Momentum Indicator, and addition coloring for Market Direction Indicator . It is good (right) to work with both price and volume.
In this version we've moved the divergence highlighting to symbols at the ends of the histograms. Same coloring scheme as previous, yellow is divergence of either OBV or...
Hey Guys, publishing this code so you can feel free to try out the squeeze momentum strategy for yourself!
If you guys think you can make any improvements on this yourself, or even code this exact version (using pipeline and everything) into quantopian, please let me know!!
Chart based on True Strength Indicator
It was improved to show same information as Squeeze Momentum Indicator by LazyBear,
but it seems to have better and quicker response to changes and was tested on Bitcoin mainly.
Credit to LazyBear and Kiasaki for code used in this indicator.
Squeeze Momentum indicator illustrates when a momentum squeeze is happening by calculating when Bollinger Bands are within a Keltner Channel.
This simple strategy is based on when the momentum is crossing positive or negative.
Green = Long
Red = Short
White = No Trade
Updated for TV-Pine V4
This is the MACD of a stochastic OBV movement indicator and now the MACD of the Squeeze Momentum Indicator. It is good (right) to work with both price and volume...it is also good to utilize the most popular indicator ever in TV (Lazybear).
I've included highlighting based on price divergence, yellow is divergence of either OBV or SQZ, red...
