Maximum Drawdown and Maximum Relative Drawdown% calculating functions.
I needed a way to calculate the maxDD% of a serie of datas from an array (the different values of my balance account). I didn't find any builtin pinescript way to do it, so here it is.
There are 2 algorithms to calculate maxDD and relative maxDD%, one non optimized needs n*(n - 1)/2...
Minimum and maximum points in a day trading session. It may help you spot the range which min and max occur in a session.
In day trading, for example, at securities like GBPNZD, minimum happens between 02:00-05:00 ET and maximum between 08:00-14:00 ET. This indicator can help you test this hypothesis.
Determines local maximums and minimums points in the chart.
lookback : number of candlesticks to look.
extrema_finder_sensivity : If lower, more extreme points will be found (may over-find).
Brief algorithm description:
Computes a Simple Moving Average (length= extrema_finder_sensivity ), and searches for its local extremes.
Given some SMA...
Draws minimum and maximum prices as a line chart for four different time frames.
1) The last 21 bars (close price)
2) The last 50 bars (close price)
3) The last 100 bars (close price)
