This script calculates and displays some bar statistics.
For the bar length statistics, it takes every length of upper or lower movements and calculates their average (with SD), median, and max. That way, you can see whether there is a bias in the market or not.

This is an interesting study that can be used as a tool for determining trend direction, and also could be a trailing stop setter. I use it as a gauge on MTF settings, in the pic MTF is turned off. If on, you can look at the bar cycle of the 1h while on the 15m giving you a lot of information in one tool. If a line is missing high or low, it is because it was...
This script will add text to bars showing the price change of the bar as a percentage, both for open/close and high/low.
It can be used together with Rate of Change to better get an idea of how the price moved at a previous point in time.
Script uses labels for text, as there is a maximum limit of 500 labels if you want to study price movement for a specific...
This indicator shows the three and four-bar play which is when price action has a wide igniting bar that has a full body, then one or two narrow bars which have a relatively equal high for long plays and relatively equal low for short plays, then a continuation bar. You should not take plays that will encounter resistance.

You should not take plays that will encounter resistance. The stop loss is placed for long plays...
