CCI Money Squeeze Indicator for ThinkorSwim


Staff member
I have used this indicator to find many lucrative opportunities. This indicator takes the moving average of CCI in custom, volatility-specific conditions. CCI measures "overbought" in the red-shaded region and "Oversold" in the green-shaded region. The shaded regions do not constitute a buy/sell signal alone, the MS CCI Squeeze is best used when market conditions agree and is best used when the user has fundamental reasoning for "reversal-like" situations to align.

Sorry but this already exists as a ToS study ,,, CCIAverage
Plus the ToS study has the average line.

May have slightly different math but result is the same.
@BenTen if you have any free time , is possible crate scan MS MONEY CCI SQUEEZE daily crossed above 100 or below -100 . to me is buyer start to step in , thanks very much
@Allenew79 You can do that via the Scan tab. Just select the condition as CCI_Squeeze crosses above 100 or below -100.
I am not quite sure when Ben referred "Money Squeeze" part for the name of the study.

The Math of this study is very similar to classic CCI beside the above mentioned. Than which part of the study makes it specific to "Money" and "Squeeze"?

It seems that you are asking two totally separate questions.
So I split your post into two separate posts.

The CCI Money Squeeze Indicator was ported from here:
https://www.tradingview.com/script/...UEEZE/#:~:text=I have used,and strength trend.
As to why the original poster on Tradingview decided to call the classic CCI averages, a money squeeze, there is no way of knowing.
