I am looking for a squeeze indicator that will place a dot or dots above or below candle when squeeze releases

I am looking for a squeeze indicator that will place a dot or dots above or below candle when squeeze releases


this is how i would do it,

find the squeeze study. ttm_squeeze
the whole code isn't availble, but the plots are, so you can figure out what it is doing.
plot Histogram = Double.NaN;
plot VolComp = Double.NaN;
plot SqueezeAlert = Double.NaN;

add a bubble to show a plot variable, to figure out what it does.

to read a value in another study, write a formula like this, study name and plot name,
you can add parameters in between the ( ) if you don't want the defaults.

def sqz = ttm_squeeze().SqueezeAlert;

i'm not sure what a released squeeze is, but i guess it is after a squeeze.

i'm not sure what a released squeeze is, but i guess it is after a squeeze.
so we need to find a bar not in a squeeze and the previous bar was in a squeeze.

if we add a bubble, we can see what the sqz values are,

addchartbubble(1, 0, sqz, (if sqz==0 then color.yellow else color.gray), yes);

sqz is 0 when in a squeeze, when the dots are red.

then we can write a formula that is true on the bar after a squeeze.

def after = sqz[1] == 0 and sqz[0] == 1;

now we know what variable does what for the condition you want to ineract with.

i added dots. then i added arrows.
can turn either on/off

@halcyonguy Thank you a ton. Is there a chance I could get you to color the bars gray or yellow or something when a squeeze is happening?
 
Update. I got the bars to color gray during the squeeze but I cannot get the candles to color after the release either up or down. I think it will make for a cleaner chart to have the "Zup" to be a cyan bar and "Zdn" to be a magenta bar in place of candles or if it makes it easier to add the option to have arrows or not. Can someone help with this?
