# Dyno Trading Volume indicator For ThinkOrSwim

I was able to recreate a close representation of the Dyno Trading Volume indicator (Which I do not believe is based on volume but a Linear Regression crossover). I saw an article from Lizard Indicators (Link provided in the commented section of the code) and basically recreated their version in TOS and it looks fairly close.
Please review and let me know what you think. I also combine this with the VWAP and 200 EMA. The bars are color coded and this does not repaint. Green bars = Buy, Red bars = Sell and Yellow bars = Stay out (Neutral).

Interesting indicator! Thank you for sharing this

I really like the color coding of bars but i already have another study that also paints bars so i was wondering if it´s possible to modify this study so that it instead painting bars, only show labels on upper chart using the green, red & yellow colors and the labels can say "buy", "sell" and "neutral"

Appreciate if you can help me with this modification.

Looks very interesting. I have been watching DynoTreading for a while now and can't tell if it's a bunch of crap but always wanted to test it out. Please keep us apprised of how this works on live charts. . thanks for the effort and sharing.

@Investingtogive thank you!

Can you help me with a simple indicator that has some similar aspects to yours above. I'm trying to make bands/lines in which each point on the line is the terminating mean, +1,-1 of Standard Dev Channel, from previous prints.

Does that make sense? Maybe this will be easy for you?
Thanks!

@Investingtogive another question on this great indicator. Is there a way to make a watchlist code that tells if theres a red/green ribbon, and if so what that thickness of the ribbon/trend is?

Thanks!!!

HI all, I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel while also working so I won't have much time in the next two weeks to look into your requests. I just didn't want you to think that I was ignoring you. I'll l et you know when I get a chance to look into them.
Thanks,

@Investingtogive Great job! You have the right idea but Dyno Trading "Volume" indicator is not based on Linear Regression but two EMA or rather an EMA of an EMA if that makes sense.

@ Tradegeek Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. That does makes sense. Do you know what the two EMAs are (1st EMA and the 2nd EMA of the 1 EMA ) ? I would love to code this.

Yes I know exactly what the two EMAs are. They’re both 20 EMA. So instead of the EMA of the Linear Regression, it’s an 20 Exponential Average of the 20 EMA. I’ve already recreated this on Ninjatrader.
Perfect. I just created it on TOS with Heikin Ashi candles. Thanks. How do you Enter and Exit your trades using this ?

this is pretty straight forward.. stop/exit if candles turn yellow. will try this tomorrow. thanks.

Perfect. I just created it on TOS....
Could you please provide the TOS code for that for those of us who are coding impaired?

Could you please provide the TOS code for that for those of us who are coding impaired?
Certainly. Let me put together some screen shots and descriptions and I'll send something out.

Thank you!

Good morning all, with help from members in the group I have been able to replicate the Dyno Trading indicator into TOS script. Mine is not Volume based but uses two EMAs. I have compared these charts to his they they look identical. What I am providing here is a work in progress and not completed yet. I also added color dots to the 200 EMA Cloud that work off of the 34 EMA, 68EMA and 116 SMA lines. These help gage the overall Trend of the market. Combine these with the EMA Clouds for trades. I hope to add better Entry and Exit graphics into the code as well as scanners. Please review, test and provide feedback / suggestions.
I use (3) indicators here in my Strategy (Study):
1. EMA Clouds
2. Price Line (This gives me the real time price because I set my charts to Heikin Ashi - which doesn't display the actual real time price))
3. VWAP

1. EMA Clouds:

# Begin of EMA Clouds

input price = close;
input EMA_1 = 20;
input EMA_2 = 20;
input showBreakoutSignals = no;

def EMA34 = ExpAverage(price, 34);
def EMA68 = ExpAverage(price, 68);
def SMA116 = Average(price, 116);
def Body = (open + close) / 2;

plot AvgExp_1 = ExpAverage(price, EMA_1);
plot AvgExp_2 = ExpAverage(AvgExp_1, EMA_2);

DefineGlobalColor("Bullish", Color.GREEN);
DefineGlobalColor("Bearish", Color.RED);

def Up = EMA34 > EMA68 and EMA68 > SMA116;
def Down = EMA34 < EMA68 and EMA68 < SMA116;
plot UpSignal = Up and Up[1] == 0;
plot DownSignal = Down and Down[1] == 0;

UpSignal.SetHiding(!showBreakoutSignals);
DownSignal.SetHiding(!showBreakoutSignals);
UpSignal.SetDefaultColor(Color.UPTICK);
UpSignal.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.ARROW_UP);
DownSignal.SetDefaultColor(Color.DOWNTICK);
DownSignal.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.ARROW_DOWN);

# Combining the EMA 200 Cloud and the 34EMA, 68EMA and 116 EMA Trend
def EMA_200_High = MovAvgExponential(high, 200)."AvgExp";
def EMA_200_Low = MovAvgExponential(low, 200)."AvgExp";
def Bull = EMA_200_High > EMA_200_High[1] and EMA_200_Low > EMA_200_Low[1];
def Bear = EMA_200_High < EMA_200_High[1] and EMA_200_Low < EMA_200_Low[1];

DefineGlobalColor("Bull", Color.GRAY);
DefineGlobalColor("Bear", Color.GRAY);

# Trend Dots on 200 EMA
plot EMA200 = ExpAverage(price, 200);
EMA200.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(0));
DefineGlobalColor("Bull Trend Color", Color.RED);
DefineGlobalColor("Bear Trend Color", Color.GREEN);
DefineGlobalColor("Neutral Trend Color", Color.YELLOW);
EMA200.SetLineWeight( 2 );
EMA200.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.POINTS);
# VWAP.AssignValueColor(GlobalColor("Bear Trend Color"));

EMA200.AssignValueColor( if Up then Color.GREEN else if Down then Color.RED else Color.YELLOW);

# End

2. Price Line:

#Plots a Horizontal Line that follows the price value selected
input price=close;
input offset=0;
input length = 300;

def sma = SimpleMovingAvg(price, 1, length);
rec line = if IsNaN(sma) then line[1] else sma[offset];
plot priceline=if isnan(sma) then line else double.nan;
priceline.setpaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.LINE);
priceline.setlineWeight(3);
priceline.setdefaultColor(color.green);
priceline.hideBubble();

# End

What I have been doing is only Entering when the Trend dots are Green (Buy) or Red (Sell) and a Pullback into the EMA Cloud with the same Color.

Entry: Green Trend Dots and Green Cloud and a Pullback into that Green Cloud
Exit : Heikin Ashi bars close below the EMA Cloud or a Cloud Crossover.
1. Sell:
Entry: Red Trend Dots and Red Cloud and a Pullback into that Red Cloud
Exit : Heikin Ashi bars close above the EMA Cloud or a Cloud Crossover.

Hope this helps. Please provide feedback because my code is not totally clean up but a work in progress.

Thanks,
