A problem I noticed with the built in Vortex indicator was that it didn't include any defined thresholds that are important to understanding how to read the vortex indicator. So I modified the vortex indicator in order to have the thresholds built in so you don't have to draw horizontal lines on your chart.

I noticed I have switched the plot names. Histo shd be the MACD and DMACD shd be the Signal.
Replace lines 16 & 17 with these to get the correct names. NOTE that no functionality is affected, just the names.

Market Facilitation Index, by Bill Williams, plots the effectiveness of price movement by computing the price movement per volume unit.
4 possible combinations of MFIndex and Volume are:
Heiken-Ashi Candlestick Oscillator (HACO), by Sylvian Vervoort, is a digital oscillator version of the colored candlesticks.
Explanation from Vervoort:
"HACO is not meant to be an automatic trading system, so when there is a buy or sell signal from HACO, make sure it is confirmed by other TA techniques. HACO will certainly aid in signaling buy/sell...
TMF is a CMF (Chaikin Money Flow) variation that addresses some of the gaps in the original indicator. More info: www.incrediblecharts.com
TMF uses true range, rather than daily Highs minus Lows. Also, uses Wilder's MA rather than SMA/EMA.
Since I had to write Wilder's MA (WiMA) for TMF, I have published that also as a...

I have merged in @TheMighyChicken's code (Thanks!) and added some more options. Updated source here - pastebin.com
- Switch between plain candles and colored oscillator candles.
- Switch between candles and plain oscillator view.
Short-term Volume and Price Oscillator (SVAPO), developed by Sylvian Vervroot, combines both Price and Volume to construct an oscillator. In essence, when the price is trending up and volume is increasing, volume is added into the oscillator calculation. Conversely, when price is trending down and volume is increasing, volume will be subtracted from the...
Reversal candles are a very easy way to identify a turn in trend, this indicator has some specific additional conditions for the reversal candle.
BUY Signal reversal candle
Low of current candle exceeds low of previous candle
Low of current candle is lowest for last 7 candles
High of current candle exceeds high of previous candle
Close of current candle is in the...
This updates Blau's excellent Candlestick oscillator to be adaptive by using the length of a scaled stochastic indicator and an exponent (for calculating the smoothing coefficient) to obtain the moving average.

Volatility Quality Index (VQI), by Thomas Stridsman, points out the difference between bad and good volatility in order to identify better trade opportunities in the market.
This plots 3 lines:
- Red line is the VQI (actually, sum of VQI).
- Green line is the 9-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.
- Orange line is the 200-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.

This indicator will help you if you struggle making any profit in bitcoin.
It generates very few signals with very nice profit potential ( around 100% this year ! ).
Perfect tool for longterm swing traders and new traders that need help figuring out the midterm trend.
Use it with these parameters only:
weekly: 13, 5, 12
daily: 92, 21, 96
Thank You Richard Santos!!!
This is a great indicator guys.Its good for measuring divergence in an objective way.
The idea is to measure the high to high and the low to low (stock vs. indicator) with the low to high and high to low (stock vs. indicator). This is the basis of divergence.
I love this one.
I would also add you can draw angles on the indicator...
I am a big fan of Constance Brown. Her book "Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals" is an absolute classic (get the 2nd edition).
I have included here 2 of the indicators she uses in all her charts.
This is a formula Ms Brown developed (Cardwell may not agree!) to identify divergence failures with...
Market Direction Indicator (MDI), by Donald Lambert, is an extension of simple moving average cross over systems. Series of price cross over points are determined to derive MDI.
Note that the short/long lengths will differ between instruments. They need to be tuned properly.
I have added an option to specify a "cutoff" parameter. When MDI is in the cutoff zone...
DecisionPoint Swenlin Trading Oscillator can be used to identify short-term tops and bottoms. This is a breadth indicator. STO is designed to be calculated using either issues or volume, I will post a follow up indicator that makes use of volume.
You can read about the interpretation of the signals (& gotchas) in the link below.
I have added support for NYSE /...
