ATR-Based Support & Resistance for ThinkorSwim

Our research showed that securities usually stay in their ATR. It is about 4.8% days when security is goes out of ATR. So we are using this feature in our trading, when security is out of their 70% of ATR we are looking for signals to trade backward. This indicator could show you when bars are close to ATR.

By default, the indicator uses the "DAY" option. However, if you would like to play around with other timeframe aggregation, then you can do so from the indicator's setting. I found it interesting when applying the Monthly or OPT_EXP (aggregation period equal to option expiration) onto the Daily chart.

@BenTen Is that an ATR multiplier?

input length = 15;

@john3 Correct. Ignore the input daily_atr_len. That was included by mistake. Use the regular length like you mentioned :)

Not a multiplier as far as I can tell. It is the length of the true range moving average.

Yes if 15 it would be a 15 period moving average. Red top plot is the close + ATR. Then it plots next lower lines at .7 and then .5 of that first close + ATR plot. Add clouds and that is it. Same for green plots just reversed.

def atr_func = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(h, c, l), length);

That above doesn't seem to be a "real" Wilders ATR, but I'm not a coder, so apologies in advance if I'm wrong.

Does it use a 15-Day Moving Average as a base or is it based on a Daily range, Average True Range? I have a code for daily ATR and it seems to be different.

declare upper;

input ATRLength = 14;
input BasePeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
input Displace = 0;

def dATR = Average(TrueRange(high(period = "DAY"), close(period = "DAY"), low(period = "DAY")));
plot SessionOpen = open(period = BasePeriod)[Displace];
def dATRa = dATR * Sqrt(BasePeriod / AggregationPeriod.DAY );

@horserider So it is based on a Daily ATR moving average (or 15 min ATR Moving Average if selected, etc), but the base isn't an ATR of a Daily range, right? The description, at least to me, sounds like it is based on an ATR of a Daily range.

input length = 15;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
def atr_func = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(h, c, l), length);

ToS ATR below:
input length = 14;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
plot ATR = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(high, close, low), length);

Looks like the same formula.

ATR is the Average True Range. So this is the wilders average of the True Range over 15 periods

I believe @horserider description is correct, Perhaps we can all spend some time looking at it further and backtest it. I will add it to my backlog and look at this again over the weekend.

I am using a monthly aggregation period on a daily chart, but am having trouble creating a scan between two. Does anyone know how to create a scan that works on differing aggregation periods and time frames?

Thanks @BenTen, this is one of the indicators i am looking for, it plots the Expected Move on weekly or when applying the OPT_EXP on the daily timeframe, it gives us the entire EM...it is really useful.... I am thinking what are the options strategy we can apply with this information provided....

This seems like it works better using the current day open rather than prior day close.

@BenTen @Welkin @horserider Please take a look at this amazing pivot points indicator. It combines the floor trading and fibs pivot points plus mids and other levels. It plots the expected move on any given time frame. Try it on any time frame and you will see how accurate. Is there a way to color between the levels of support and resistance?
I use monthly pivots on day chart showing only R2, Mid2, R1 to Exit long trades.

if you want to color between lines use the addcloud(); function for which plots you wish to color between.
for example
AddCloud(R2, Mid2, Color.GREEN, Color.GREEN, no);
will color the space between R2 and Mid2 green, 'no' at the end of the function specifies if you want the clouds to have an outline, which I don't think is needed.

@Welkin Thank you I appreciate the help. What I like the most about the indicator is it's accuracy, and once the levels plotted they do not move or change their position. If you find a way to use it let me know. I only use it mainly for long term investment using certain monthly levels. I wouldn't mind using it for intraday trades.

@BenTen thanks. Can you may be explain how to look for entry points with this. I have it set for 2min chart with 2hr aggregation. Similar looks are in place for higher timeframes.
