Repaints AGAIG Pivot Overbought Oversold Bubbles



Trader Educator
AsGoodAsItGets Pivot Overbought Oversold Chart Bubbles

##Thanks to samer800 for helping me find where this was originally posted. I wanted to make sure proper credit is given.

##I have converted this indicator to show as Overbought (OvrBot) RED and Oversold (OvrSld) GREEN using a forward length of 2 and a Backward length of 8.

I'm using an eight since history shows candles change direction approximately every 6-10 bars (no matter which time frame used).

I'm using a forward 2 in order to show at least a two bar change in direction. I only place trades if at least two of my other indicators also show a change in direction taking place.

mod note:
Does not update in real time because it utilizes the HighestAll() function
