I saw this very interesting custom indicator on TradingView.

I haven't got the slightest clue how to code this myself in TOS, but I think it is generally understood that we want to buy stocks that are under institutional accumulation. This indicator from TV seems to attempt to spot stocks that likely being accumulated by institutions. So I hope someone here who knows how to code would also find this concept of interest and want to code a script based upon the logic below.

Also I've already done a search on this site to see if something similar already existed, if it does, I missed finding it.

From the original author on TV....

The Ants indicator is based on the research of David Ryan, three-time winner of the U.S. Investing Championship. David came up with the idea for the indicator while managing the New USA Growth Fund at William O’Neil + Company. David was interested to understand what drove some stocks higher once they were extended from their most recent base, while others had only moderate moves up.

What David found during his research was that stocks making the biggest moves often had consistent buying on volume over a period of 12 to 15 trading days. Stocks with these characteristics may be under institutional accumulation, where it may take days to weeks to fill a position.

Momentum, Volume And Price ( MVP )

The Ants indicator looks for the following:

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎■ Momentum - The stock is up at least 12 of the past 15 days.
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎■ Volume - The volume has increased over the past 15 days by 20% to 25%.
‎ ‎ ‎ ‎■ Price - The price is up at least 20% over the past 15 days.

to the admins , if i figure out how to create my version of this MVP study, all on my own, is it ok to post my code?
thanks

in the middle of the tradingview page, it says this (link in post#1)

@halcyonguy If you independently figure out the logic to code in Thinkscript then posting the code should be acceptable... If the original code is unavailable, or obfuscated, then you would be using your own abilities to come up with the same results... I am working on a similar scenario as I reply...

thanks for replying. yes, i am making the study from scratch, based on what i read above.
i used nested fold loops to draw the
momentum squares.
i have more work to do on the volume and price sections.
 
I've gotten momentum part to work. Now to see if I can figure out the rest.

Code:
# plot squares
def square_count = sum(close > close[1], 15) >= 12;
plot square = if square_count>0 then close()+(close()/10) else double.nan;
square.setpaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.squares);
square.setDefaultColor(color.green);
square.SetlineWeight(1);

# add chart bubbles
def bubble_location = close()+(close()/10);
addchartbubble (square_count>0, bubble_location, “MVP: Price Higher”, color.green, yes);

# add chart bubbles
def bubble_location = close()+(close()/10);
addchartbubble (square_count>0, bubble_location, “MVP: Price Higher”, color.green, yes);
that is a good try. but it doesn't look to the future to see if the current bar is in the first few bars of a series.
i will post what i have in a couple hours. sorry got busy with other things. will try to finish it tonight.
 
At this point I've done as much as I know how. Anything more is beyond my 2 week coding experience...lol. See below. Ignore the non bubble text and trend lines. Those are just my personal notes for other things.

Code:
def bars = 15;
def location = close()+(close()/10);

# Momentum
def momentum = sum(close > close[1], bars) >= 12;

# Volume
def volume_now = volume;
def volume_before = volume_now[bars]+((volume_now[bars])/5);

# Price change
def price_now = close();
def price_before = price_now[bars]+((price_now[bars])/5);

### Add Chart Bubbles
# M
addchartbubble (momentum>0, location, “M”, color.orange, yes);

# MP
addchartbubble (momentum>0 AND price_now>price_before, location, “MP”, color.orange, yes);

# MV
addchartbubble (momentum>0 AND volume_now>volume_before, location, “MV”, color.orange, yes);

# MVP
addchartbubble (momentum>0 AND price_now>price_before AND volume_now>volume_before, location, “MVP”, color.orange, yes);
 
here is preliminary code, BUT, it is just for finding the momentum portion, the blue squares.
i will keep working on it, and add the price and volume sections.

# — Momentum, Volume And Price ( MVP ) —

# The Ants indicator looks for the following:
#  1... Momentum - The stock is up at least 12 of the past 15 days.
#  2... Volume - The volume has increased over the past 15 days by 20% to 25%.

#  What Does It Mean If More Than 15 Ants Are Shown?
#It is possible that two or more consecutive series of Ants overlap. For example, you may have one series of 15 bars that meet all the MVP requirements. Somewhere within that series, another run of 15 bars may begin that also meets the MVP requirements. In situations such as this, once each run of 15 Ants is displayed, the total number of consecutive Ants shown will be greater than 15.

BTW I asked the author of the tradingview indicator to clarify what he meant about the volume being 20% greater than 15 days ago, and since I wasn't sure. This is what he replied with....

You want the 15 day average daily volume to be 20% or greater than the preceding 50 day average.

hmmm , preceding...
i wonder if he means compare 15avg to the 50avg?
or
calc the 15avg. then go back 16 bars and calc the 50avg, so the 50 precedes the 15..?

i'm thinking the 2nd one.

Now that I think of it, you can read his comment multiple ways. I'll message him on Twitter and ask him to clarify further.

He has't responded to me yet, and he might not respond at all. Meanwhile I was looking at a different tweet of his, talking about a different indicators of his and I think this image below shows context of what he means by the 50 avg. So my guess is that when he replied earlier to me/us and mentioned the 15 avg and the 50 avg, I think he meant the 15 avg and the 50 avg as of the last bar.

here is my version of MVP
it draws squares above the candles, depending on 3 conditions.

momentum up is when close is > previous close, for the min bars, within a max series.
volume up is determined when volume average(15) > (volume average(50) * 20%)
price up is determined when price average(15) > (price average(50) * 6%). ( i changed it from 20% to 6%, because price rarely rose 20%, )

can show a color legend to the right of last candle.
a gray horizontal line is drawn when the momentum condition is true.

test data,
...can draw colored squares below the candles, for each condition.
...can show price average lines
...a separate study will show volume average lines

This is great... thanks for putting this all together. My opinion on how to read price/volume action is that you would want the volume to expand by 20-25% during the 15-day period compared to the previous long term trend. In this case, we're comparing the long term trend of 50-day simple moving average. To me, that means we should be comparing against the average 50-day volume from 16 bars ago. Otherwise you're calculating against a rising tide which skews the analysis. It's simple mod to this code by changing line 117 to:
def volupx = if ( vol_avgshort > (vol_avglong[16] * (1 + vip)) ) then 1
I just added the [16] lookback so the longer term average is from 16 bars ago. So anyone can decide how they'd like to analyze this and adjust the code accordingly. Thanks again for doing all the heavy lifting!!!!!!
