@cabe1332 Commonly Used Chart Indicators For ThinkOrSwim
**created by mods --This is a compilation summary thread of indicators shared by @cabe1332
I am not a full scalper but scalp good setups.
The setup is custom to my style, not comfortable sharing the setup. I have spent time learning and testing what works for me.
While @cabe1332 not comfortable sharing chart setups, here are several of the indicators that appear on his charts.
Volume labels
Market Pulse
Stacked EMAs

Upper Chart
Heikin Ashi candles
Cloud Overlay
Squeeze Fired
Hull Moving Average Concavity and Turning Points
Extended Keltner Channels
Fib retracement

Lower Chart
RSI labels
Trend Score labels
Squeeze Pro

Let me add, that indicators only add 10% of the trading journey. Finding, screening, and reviewing the securities counts for 30%. Planning the trade 40%. And the rest 20% is entry/exit execution. I could be wrong and misleading, but that is how I am learning every trading session. Good luck!

Been trading since August 2020.
Good luck!

what about the Hod and Lod labels?
High of the Day, Low of the Day, probably?

The label would be:
# Daily High Low Labels
DefineGlobalColor("Label", CreateColor (200, 125, 255)) ;
input agg = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
Addlabel(yes, "HOD: " +high(Period =agg) +" |  " +"LOD: " +low(Period =agg), GlobalColor("Label")) ;
Change label color in Settings under Global
Thank you MerryDay. Also for anyone wondering, the cyan and green cloud are called ripsters clouds. You can find by searching on Google.
Noticed your Volume labels > Volume Profile.

Link seems wrong?
# Daily Volume Label
DefineGlobalColor("Label", CreateColor (200, 125, 255)) ;
input agg = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
AddLabel(yes, "volume: " +round(volume(Period =agg)/1000000,0) +"m",GlobalColor("Label"));
Adjust label color in Settings under Global
