Hull Moving Average ATR Bands for ThinkorSwim

Wondering if anyone has coded the Hull Range Indicator...(it positions the ATR above and below the Hull MA -creating an envelope)?
 
@Namor I thought I had the code but am not finding it... I used to use the Hull Moving Average exclusively but switched to EMA's some months ago... Shouldn't be too difficult to code... I'll take another look because I swear I had written it last year...
 
@Namor I went ahead and re-coded the HMA bands similar to what I tried last year... I added the ability to optionally have the bands show trend the same as the HMA itself... Hopefully, this is what you were looking for... I didn't add the ability to change the number of ATR's but it would be an easy addition if desired... Let me know what you think...

plot ATRupperBand = HMA + atr;

I wrote this to create ATR bands around the closing price. You can add the Hull code in there and have it work around that.

Code:
# Plot ATR Bands

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
def open = open(period = aggregationPeriod);
def high = high(period = aggregationPeriod);
def low = low(period = aggregationPeriod);
def close = close(period = aggregationPeriod);

input length = 10;
input averageType = AverageType.WILDERS;
input StopFactor = 2;


def ATR = MovingAverage(averageType, TrueRange(high, close, low), length);

plot line1 = close + (ATR*StopFactor);
plot line2 = close - (ATR*StopFactor);

##### End Code #####
 
Can someone make a scan out

Could you make a scan out of the code? Looks amazing!!!
