@BenTen I notice this indicator shows bullish moves above the 50 MA and bearish moves below it. Is there anyway to setup this indicator to catch bullish or bearish moves around the 10 MA? Thanks!

@BenTen When i use the indicator, i notice the histogram doesn't turn green until candles go above the 50 MA. When it's below the 50 MA the indicator show bearish. I was just checking out the indicator with a 50 MA. If you try it you'll see what i'm talking about. The indicator is very powerful above the 50 MA.

@BenTen When the candle is above the 50 MA and the indicator is showing green the market is strong uptrend. And below the 50 MA and the indicator showing red it's a strong downtrend. I'm using the 5 minute chart

@BenTen I understand this script doesn't utilize the 50 SMA. I didn't see it in the code. If you just give it a try you'll see what i'm talking about. I've been trying to figure out how is this possible and the 50 SMA isn't utilized. But above the 50 the indicator show bullish and below the 50 it shows bearish. There's another indicator on this forum by the name Webby's RSI, it does the same thing. Please just look at them. If not i'll keep trying to figure them out. I don't know anything about coding but i'll keep trying. Thanks!

Ben - Could we use any length other than 30? Is 30 the MA?

The script that you quoted looks at the moving average of ratio of bull to bear price action.
Yes, the moving average looks at a length of 30 bars which is a standard default for most day and short-medium swing traders.
Try shortening for shorter-term trades.
