So I may be asking for the wrong thing, however, I have watched tons of videos and traders live calling it supply/Demand and also support/resistance. To be honest, it isn't consistently referenced the same.

What I am looking for is:
-Finding "major" pivot points.

Typically, by using higher time frames such as 1hr, D, 4r, and sometimes 15m. The pivot points seem to play a major role in the Break and retest strategy that I have been using for trading options on the 1 and 2m TF.
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/support-resistance-with-breaks-and-retests-for-thinkorswim.14893/

I have tested so many of the Supply/Demand and Support/Resistance indicators.
I get okay results but not very consistent in locating the precise zones.
There may be one or more out there, but I think I have tried them all on this forum.

- What I believe needs to occur in and indicator is to:
1) find the pivot points
2) Have a optional parameter that may be applied, such as
How many times this pivot point has been approached and either rejected or broken through and retested where it becomes either a support where it was previously a resistance and visa versa.
3) I assume there would need to be a range parameter that would allow for how close the pivot point can be approached for it to be considered a viable zone.
4)How far back this zone/pivot point is searched for. Could be bars, but I think for ease, it would be better to have days, weeks, months option.
4) the cloud/zone to be all the way across chart.
Also would like for it to be sizeable. Not sure if this is possible, but would be nice to have set parameters for the width of the zone.

Do you know if this is even achievable or is there an indicator out there that will accomplish this?

sometimes using 2nd agg data has consequences. sometimes you can simulate data from a higher time frame by looking at more history data, by using longer length in functions.


- What I believe needs to occur in and indicator is to:

1) find the pivot points
you skipped over the most important part,
define a pivot...

is it based on highs and lows? or body size?
is it a reversal?
is it 1 bar that has a low , that is lower than x previous bars and lower than x future bars?

something like the first code in this post ?
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...ows-indefinitely-in-thinkorswim.930/post-7048
my version of it
Code:
# peaks_valleys_template_00c

def bn = BarNumber();
def lastbn = highestall(if isnan(close) then 0 else bn);
def lastcls = if lastbn then close else lastcls[1];
#def lastbar = (!isnan(close) and isnan(close[-1]));

input show_peak_valley_arrows = yes;
def spva = show_peak_valley_arrows;
input len = 4;
def offset = Min(len - 1, lastbn - bn);

#--------------------------
#valley section
#def Valley = low < Lowest(low[1], len) and low < Lowest(low[-len], len);
def valley = low < Lowest(low[1], len - 1) and low == GetValue(Lowest(low, len), -offset);

plot ArrowUP = if spva then Valley else na;
ArrowUP.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
ArrowUP.SetDefaultColor(Color.WHITE);
ArrowUP.SetLineWeight(2);

#---------------------------
#peak section
#def Peak = high > highest(high[1], len) and high > highest(high[-len], len);
def peak = high > highest(high[1], len - 1) and high == GetValue(highest(high, len), -offset);

plot ArrowDN = if spva then Peak else na;
ArrowDN.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);
ArrowDN.SetDefaultColor(Color.WHITE);
ArrowDN.SetLineWeight(2);
#



2) Have a optional parameter that may be applied, such as
How many times this pivot point has been approached and either rejected or broken through and retested where it becomes either a support where it was previously a resistance and visa versa.
that is a lot of variations, ... lots of possible values, many variables
start simple, with one parameter, get it working, then add another...


3) I assume there would need to be a range parameter that would allow for how close the pivot point can be approached for it to be considered a viable zone.
yes, what defines near to a price level ? within some % , within some $$ amount ?


4)How far back this zone/pivot point is searched for. Could be bars, but I think for ease, it would be better to have days, weeks, months option.
bars will always be easier. it's a number that can be used in a loop.
any time range would need converting.



5) the cloud/zone to be all the way across chart.
would need many variables. any guesses on the max pivots on a chart ? 4,8,10,...


Also would like for it to be sizeable. Not sure if this is possible, but would be nice to have set parameters for the width of the zone.
what is 'it'? try not to use generic words when describing things.
size what, in what way?

there will be a max quantity of pivot zones on a chart. when max+1 occurs, the oldest could stop drawing. ( ref my gap code below , 4 gap zones at a time)
(can't have infinite items drawn on a chart. no one is going to program 100 sets of formulas for that many pivots...)



----------------------


ref code , gaps
show what can be done to have 4 of the same thing on a chart. 4x the formulas.
this will plot 4 gaps at a time.
if this is yes, reduce_gaps = yes , then the gap clouds will reduce as bars come into the gap zone.

@samer800 @halcyonguy @Christopher84


maybe this will help you think about your request and come up with different questions , tasks.

find pivots (peaks and valleys) for up to 4 diff agg times, and draw arrows.

this does NOT use 2nd aggregation prices.
it only uses chart time data.
(if a 2nd agg time of hour(60 min) is picked, and the chart time is 15 minutes, then 60/15 = 4 - 15 minute bars are needed to represent an hour bar)

it calculates a quantity of bars , based on a input quantity, a 2nd agg time, and the chart time.
it looks forward and back by that quantity of bars,
to determine if the current bar is a highest or lowest price (peak or valley).

it draws colored, stacked arrows on bars with a peak or valley.
if a bar has a peak for all 4 times, then there will be 4 arrows, each one above the other.
each agg time item (labels, arrows) will have a unique color.
agg1 - cyan - day
agg2 - red - 4 hours
agg3 - yellow - hour
agg4 - green - 15 minutes

if a bar quantity is set to 0, then labels and arrows for that time are not drawn.

So I may be asking for the wrong thing, however, I have watched tons of videos and traders live calling it supply/Demand and also support/resistance. To be honest, it isn't consistently referenced the same.

What I am looking for is:
-Finding "major" pivot points.

Typically, by using higher time frames such as 1hr, D, 4r, and sometimes 15m. The pivot points seem to play a major role in the Break and retest strategy that I have been using for trading options on the 1 and 2m TF.
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/support-resistance-with-breaks-and-retests-for-thinkorswim.14893/

I have tested so many of the Supply/Demand and Support/Resistance indicators.
I get okay results but not very consistent in locating the precise zones.
There may be one or more out there, but I think I have tried them all on this forum.

- What I believe needs to occur in and indicator is to:
1) find the pivot points
2) Have a optional parameter that may be applied, such as
How many times this pivot point has been approached and either rejected or broken through and retested where it becomes either a support where it was previously a resistance and visa versa.
3) I assume there would need to be a range parameter that would allow for how close the pivot point can be approached for it to be considered a viable zone.
4)How far back this zone/pivot point is searched for. Could be bars, but I think for ease, it would be better to have days, weeks, months option.
4) the cloud/zone to be all the way across chart.
Also would like for it to be sizeable. Not sure if this is possible, but would be nice to have set parameters for the width of the zone.

Do you know if this is even achievable or is there an indicator out there that will accomplish this?
@samer800 @halcyonguy @Christopher84


another piece of the puzzle.

find peaks and valleys,
on every peak, a loop looks at future bars to count them if they are within the current bar + some dollar amount.
same for valleys.

maybe this will help you think about your request and come up with different questions , tasks.

find pivots (peaks and valleys) for up to 4 diff agg times, and draw arrows.

this does NOT use 2nd aggregation prices.
it only uses chart time data.
(if a 2nd agg time of hour(60 min) is picked, and the chart time is 15 minutes, then 60/15 = 4 - 15 minute bars are needed to represent an hour bar)

it calculates a quantity of bars , based on a input quantity, a 2nd agg time, and the chart time.
it looks forward and back by that quantity of bars,
to determine if the current bar is a highest or lowest price (peak or valley).

it draws colored, stacked arrows on bars with a peak or valley.
if a bar has a peak for all 4 times, then there will be 4 arrows, each one above the other.
each agg time item (labels, arrows) will have a unique color.
agg1 - cyan - day
agg2 - red - 4 hours
agg3 - yellow - hour
agg4 - green - 15 minutes

if a bar quantity is set to 0, then labels and arrows for that time are not drawn.

curious if there is a scan that can be done for when all 4 set up on a 5m or 30min timeframe.
 
1) find the pivot points
you skipped over the most important part,
define a pivot...

is it based on highs and lows? or body size?
is it a reversal?
is it 1 bar that has a low , that is lower than x previous bars and lower than x future bars?
-I would say that the majority of points I use is reversal point however, they are also highs and lows at that time. Not high of day. What i do using a 1hr TF, I go back however far I need to to locate reversal points that were points of reversal or retest on at least 3 and more times. Sometime 2 points will be a "Major" reversal point.
6ARkLcX.jpg


2) Have a optional parameter that may be applied, such as
How many times this pivot point has been approached and either rejected or broken through and retested where it becomes either a support where it was previously a resistance and visa versa.
that is a lot of variations, ... lots of possible values, many variables
start simple, with one parameter, get it working, then add another...
I agree

3) I assume there would need to be a range parameter that would allow for how close the pivot point can be approached for it to be considered a viable zone.
yes, what defines near to a price level ? within some % , within some $$ amount ?
I agree

4)How far back this zone/pivot point is searched for. Could be bars, but I think for ease, it would be better to have days, weeks, months option.
bars will always be easier. it's a number that can be used in a loop.
any time range would need converting.
Okay

5) the cloud/zone to be all the way across chart.
would need many variables. any guesses on the max pivots on a chart ? 4,8,10,...
The reason I added this is because some of the studies create a zone as the day goes on which I get, but I would like the zones to stay across the day I am trading on so I may use them as entry/exit points. So I really meant just across the day I am trading.

Also would like for it to be sizeable. Not sure if this is possible, but would be nice to have set parameters for the width of the zone.
what is 'it'? try not to use generic words when describing things.
size what, in what way?
What I have noticed is some indicators will draw a zone that covers most of the chart, so it really isn't useable. I get that this may be an entire consolidation area. What I would like to accomplish is a set height/width of the zone. Maybe a center pivot point that the zone is x size from that line?? Maybe this is asking too much or not relevant enough.

I actually use the Gap finder to mark those out on the stocks I am trading.

Thank you by the way. Your help is ALWAYS appreciated.
 
Thanks for work on this. One thing I must have forgot to mention is that I was hoping the indicator would draw horizontal line/zone with cloud/rectangle if possible. I can go in everyday and find these points and mark them myself. I am hoping to get an indicator that can locate and provide the zone just to save me time.
 
curious if there is a scan that can be done for when all 4 set up on a 5m or 30min timeframe.
Yes, you can add the script 4 times into the scan hacker and scan on 4 different timeframes.

No, you cannot scan for: "all 4 set up on a 5m or 30min timeframe"
Secondary aggregations are not allowed in the scanner, watchlists, or conditional orders

It is because of the fundamental way that the condition wizard works.
In the condition wizard, before we start to create the condition filters, we choose the aggregation period.
It is locked in.

After that, the scanner executes all filter conditions solely within the aggregation chosen.
If the scanner encounters an aggregation period within the filter script that doesn't match what has already been chosen; it produces the error message: "secondary aggregations not allowed".

What i do using a 1hr TF, I go back however far I need to to locate reversal points that were points of reversal or retest on at least 3 and more times. Sometime 2 points will be a "Major" reversal point.



that is a lot of variations, ... lots of possible values, many variables
start simple, with one parameter, get it working, then add another...
I agree


yes, what defines near to a price level ? within some % , within some $$ amount ?
I agree


bars will always be easier. it's a number that can be used in a loop.
any time range would need converting.
Okay


would need many variables. any guesses on the max pivots on a chart ? 4,8,10,...
The reason I added this is because some of the studies create a zone as the day goes on which I get, but I would like the zones to stay across the day I am trading on so I may use them as entry/exit points. So I really meant just across the day I am trading.


what is 'it'? try not to use generic words when describing things.
size what, in what way?
What I have noticed is some indicators will draw a zone that covers most of the chart, so it really isn't useable. I get that this may be an entire consolidation area. What I would like to accomplish is a set height/width of the zone. Maybe a center pivot point that the zone is x size from that line?? Maybe this is asking too much or not relevant enough.

I actually use the Gap finder to mark those out on the stocks I am trading.

Thank you by the way. Your help is ALWAYS appreciated.


another version to experiment with

on each peak, it looks at future peaks and valleys, and count them if within a range.
on each valley, it looks at future peaks and valleys, and count them if within a range.

can choose to continue previous lines, if next peak/valley is within a range

instead of using 2nd aggregation to find, 'longer' period peaks/valleys, for hour or whatever, i just used more bars on either side of current bar. there is a factor number, that is multiplied by the length number.

show bubbles with some counts

This is really close. Thank you for this. Is there a way to have the lines/zones carry all the way across The next day of trading? Say it is 9:00 am and the market isn't open. IS there a way to have the zones go all the way across the chart to 16:00? Hope this make sense. The point is to have these "Major" zones set in place and when the price tests that zone, I place a trade.
I looked at @BenTen Wolf Wave Trend Lines and it plots all the way across. I believe he used LinePlot function. I hope that is doable.

there is no lineplot function.
can't draw lines from within a loop.
if you want multiple lines to draw across the chart, you need multiple sets of supporting formulas and a plot. if there are 12 peaks, then you would want 12 lines. that would need to have 12 sets of formulas and 12 plots to do it. if a 13th peak appeared, the 1st line would stop plotting and the newest one would start plotting.

i can look at my post9 code and see if i can simplify it and add a few plots.... but no guarantees.
 
@METAL .. I've been playing around with the same concept, but using ZigZag pivots and have found them very useful in my trading. The code will plot the last 10 pivots to the right of the current prices.
