# linear regression plot dependent on condition

If functions (such as "movingaverage" or "stdev") expect a constant as the length parameter, an error is returned when attempting to instead get the length parameter from a variable.

So if we want to calculate a moving average or standard deviation with a length that varies based on market conditions, it will be necessary to manually write code for movingaverage and stdev instead of using the built-in functions.
EDIT, wanted to share here that Mobius provided code in the TS Lounge that allows for variable length regression line and variable length standard deviation calculations:

Code:
``````# Linear Regression Channel anchored to Highest / Lowest Pivot
# Allows a floating point anchor
# Mobius
# V01.2015

def hh = highestAll(high);
def ll = lowestAll(low);
script S
{
input d = close;
input n = 50;
plot e = fold i = 0 to n
with f
do f + getValue(d, i);
}
def y = close;
def x  = BarNumber();
def nan = double.nan;
def xx = if(isNaN(y[-1]) and !isNaN(y), x, xx[1]);
def hx = if(high == hh, x, hx[1]);
def lx = if(low == ll, x, lx[1]);
def MinX = Max(hx, lx);
def n = highestAll(xx - MinX);
def x1 = HighestAll(if !IsNaN(y) and IsNaN(y[-1])
then x
else nan);
def x0 = HighestAll(if GetValue(x, -n) == x1
then x
else nan);
def x_ = if GetValue(x, -n) >= x1
then x - x0
else x_[1];
def Ex  = S(x_, n);
def Ey  = S(y, n);
def Exy = S(x_ * y, n);
def Exsq = S(sqr(x_), n);
def b = (n * Exy - (Ex * Ey)) / (n * Exsq - (Ex * Ex));
def a = (GetValue(Ey, x - x1) - GetValue(b, x - x1) * GetValue(Ex, x - x1)) / n;
def avg = (fold i = 0 to n
with s
do s + getValue(y, i)) / n;
def SD = Sqrt((fold i2 = 0 to n
with s2 = 0
do s2 + Sqr(avg - GetValue(y, i2))) / n);
plot LRL = if x >= x0
then a + (GetValue(b, x - x1) * x_)
else nan;
LRL.SetStyle(Curve.Firm);
LRL.SetDefaultColor(Color.Cyan);
plot upper = LRL + (highestAll(SD) * .7);
upper.SetStyle(Curve.Firm);
upper.SetDefaultColor(Color.Yellow);
plot lower = LRL - (highestAll(SD) * .7);
lower.SetStyle(Curve.Firm);
lower.SetDefaultColor(Color.Yellow);
# End Code Linear Regression Line``````

This provided me with the template I needed. The only thing that was also important to know was that the fold function can break scripts if your chart is displaying an expansion area, and this has to be prevented by instructing the code with fold (or code accessing the fold output value) with a preliminary condition such as “def {variable} = if isNan(close) then {variable}[1} else ….” or “then double.nan else…” depending on what is needed.

Solution
Thanks so much for your reply. I am a little confused about how this would be used for a condition trigger based on a signal that isn't directly related to highs, lows, or moving averages across the whole chart.

For example, suppose we want to anchor the linear regression channel to the last occurrence of a long signal (painted as an up arrow) from the triple exhaustion indicator (i.e. maybe that last occurrence was one bar ago, or maybe it was 500 bars ago). And suppose we just want the linear regression channel to use the high and low from within the last 10 bars of that anchor point.

If the condition variable for that up arrow was named "triple_exhaustion_long_arrow" then would you mind giving an example of how you would...
Yes, but im posting from my phone. I can help you out later tonight if nobody else has by then.

Code:
``````script VariableStDev{
input source = 0;
input length = 0;
def avg = (fold index = 0 to length with data
do data + getvalue(source,index)) / length;
plot variableStDev = sqrt((fold i = 0 to length with d
do d + Sqr(GetValue(source,i) - avg)) / length);
}
plot x = VariableStDev(close,20);
plot y = VariableStDev(close,Ceil(Random() * 10));
plot z = stDev(close,20);
z.setpaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.POINTS);``````

I thought that I had this working but it causes the chart to break erratically. This is the code now (for comparison, the entire unmodified code from Mobius is here):

What I changed first was these two lines:

Code:
``````def hh_LRC_2 = if !isNan(z_negative_slope_sigma3) within 1 bars then highest(high,100) else hh_LRC_2[1];
def ll_LRC_2 = if !isNan(z_negative_slope_sigma3) within 1 bars then lowest(low,100) else hh_LRC_2[1];``````

"z_negative_slope_sigma3" is the trigger condition I want to use for the plot (not defined in the above code excerpt, could be replaced with any condition variable). The two above variables originally were defined as "HighestAll(high)" and "LowestAll(low)".

Code:
``````def LRL_LRC_2_pre = if isNan(close) then double.nan else if x_LRC_2 >= x0_LRC_2
then a_LRC_2 + (GetValue(b_LRC_2, x_LRC_2 - x1_LRC_2) * x__LRC_2)
else nan_LRC_2;

def LRL_LRC_2_countback = if isNan(LRL_LRC_2_pre) then 0 else LRL_LRC_2_countback[1]+1;

def LRL_LRC_2_validation = if !isNan(close) then ( fold LRL_LRC_2_cross_i = 0 to LRL_LRC_2_countback
with LRL_LRC_2_cross_p
while (!isNan(z_negative_slope_sigma3) or LRL_LRC_2_validation[1]>0)
do 1+LRL_LRC_2_validation[1]) else double.nan;``````

And then changed the main plot by adding "if barnumber()<10000 then double.nan else if LRL_LRC_2_validation>0 then".

The reason for the dumb workaround with the "validation" fold loop is that the linear regression channel was still plotting even though I added "if !isNan(z_negative_slope_sigma3) within 1 bars" to the variable definition for getting the high for the regression channel (I think because the else condition just returns to the previous bar ("else hh_LRC_2[1]"), but I did that because "else double.nan" broke the script).

Although my workaround appeared to work for a while before breaking, I am in over my head trying to modify this to function as desired. I just want the linear regression channel to plot in dependence on a condition being met and I want the bar where the condition is met to be the anchor point for the high and low.

If anyone is able to figure out how to do this then it's probably easier to attempt the solution on the original code (here) not least because the variable names are less confusing (I appended "LRC_2" to all the variable names due to planning on having multiple versions of the plot painting differently while using different trigger conditions).

I think that the idea (of modifying this to plot based on a trigger condition also acting as an anchor) could be very useful because it could allow for any indicator to be complemented by a linear regression channel when the signal fires. I'm hoping someone finds this interesting enough to attempt the challenge or is willing to help with this.

I've posted a lot of questions in the forum lately but hopefully they will have value to the community by adding to the forum's searchable knowledge base

The problem seems to be (even with the version SleepyZ shared) that the Linear Regression Channel breaks the chart if it's not able to find any condition for plotting. So the solution I've decided to go with is to use a global color that it paints if the trigger condition isn't met within the number of bars that it's supposed to look. Then I can adjust the transparency of the global color to make it invisible. That's an acceptable workaround from my perspective. I am alright with the channel disappearing after the within x bars is exceeded, as a compromise to not have to use highestall which makes the chart run slowly.

This may help.

The zigzag uses a moving average for pivots to minimize repainting. If there are not enough bars to compute the moving average, then the prior version's logic failed. This uses the prior pivot if the last pivot is within the moving average.

This may help.

The zigzag uses a moving average for pivots to minimize repainting. If there are not enough bars to compute the moving average, then the prior version's logic failed. This uses the prior pivot if the last pivot is within the moving average.

Thanks so much for your reply. I am a little confused about how this would be used for a condition trigger based on a signal that isn't directly related to highs, lows, or moving averages across the whole chart.

For example, suppose we want to anchor the linear regression channel to the last occurrence of a long signal (painted as an up arrow) from the triple exhaustion indicator (i.e. maybe that last occurrence was one bar ago, or maybe it was 500 bars ago). And suppose we just want the linear regression channel to use the high and low from within the last 10 bars of that anchor point.

If the condition variable for that up arrow was named "triple_exhaustion_long_arrow" then would you mind giving an example of how you would recommend changing these lines?

Code:
``````def EIL = ZigZagHighLow("price h" = priceh, "price l" = pricel, "percentage reversal" = .01, "absolute reversal" = .05, "atr length" = atr_length, "atr reversal" = atrreversal).lastL;
def EIH = ZigZagHighLow("price h" = priceh, "price l" = pricel, "percentage reversal" = .01, "absolute reversal" = .05, "atr length" = atr_length, "atr reversal" = atrreversal).lastH;
def lastbar    = HighestAll(if !IsNaN(close) then BarNumber() else 0);
def signalhigh = if !IsNaN(EIH) then BarNumber() else signalhigh[1];
def signallow  = if !IsNaN(EIL) then BarNumber() else signallow[1];
def lasthigh   = if (lastbar - signalhigh) >= ma_length then signalhigh else 0;
def lastlow    = if (lastbar - signallow)  >= ma_length then signallow else 0;

def cond = Max(lasthigh, lastlow);``````

[Edit to correct lastsell as the code I found for TEI had an error where both lastbuy and last sell were both coded the same.]

The anchor of the channel is based upon a barnumber() of the last condition that you want to use to define that barnumber().

Using the Triple Exhaustion Indicator (TEI), the following was added to the code below to determine which barnumber() to use to anchor the Linear Regression Channel (LRC):

Code:
``````def lastbuy  = highestall(if sellerRegular[1] and !sellerRegular then barnumber() else Double.NaN);
#addlabel(1, lastbuy + " " + lastsell + " " + cond);``````

As TEI is a custom indicator, most of the code needs to be used in place of that used for the referenced ZigZag in the previous example.

Below is the full code for the TEI with LRC, There were no changes to the LRC code. The TEI replaced the ZigZag with the above code snippet to define COND.

Thank you, this is great. Really appreciate you taking the time to explain and write it out.

Is there anyway to get it to draw from the last ECI pivot like mobius recommends in his ECI study?

I placed it over the ECI indicator wish it could also be somehow filtered with volume stdev

Code:
``````#------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#hint: Expansion Contraction Indicator (ECI): \n ECI Identifies areas of price compression which leads to price expansion. ECI doesn't show the direction of a trend but does indicate when a trend is going to resume (price flagging) or if a change in trend polarity is happening.\n ECI plots the areas where price becomes compressed with colored and clouded bands. The indicator also leaves legacy points in areas of past compression.
# ECI is based on the FE algorithm
# Original plot style by Mobius
# Note: Default Lengths are not optimized. My personal experience has been length ranges between 8 and 13 are generally effective.
# Here's another way to look at Fractal Energy. This study plots it on the chart graph with clouded areas for the current price compression, exhaustion area and leaves colored points as a legacy plot for past areas.
# Good CSA choices with this study are:
# ECI + SuperTrend + Fractal Pivots

@SleepyZ Can you alter this code so that the linear regression will anchor Premarket 4:00 and then the far right anchor stop at 2:29. I have been testing this manually and this looks very promising similar to the ORB.

At this time, you might try this on a TODAY only timeframe chart to test your idea.

The default settings are set to start the linear reg at 0400 end it at 0929 and extend it from there until 1429.

Code:
``````#
# TD Ameritrade IP Company, Inc. (c) 2008-2022
#
#
#
#Use on TODAY only TIMEFRAME

input starttime     = 0400;
input endLRtime     = 0929;
input endplottime   = 1429;
input extendtoright = yes;
input extendtoleft  = no;
def price = if secondsfromTime(endLRtime)>=0 then price[1] else close;

plot MiddleLR = if secondsFromTime(endplottime)>0 then double.nan else InertiaAll(price,  startTime = starttime, extendToLeft = extendtoleft, extendToRight = extendtoright);
def dist = HighestAll(AbsValue(MiddleLR - price));
plot UpperLR = MiddleLR + dist;
plot LowerLR = MiddleLR - dist;

MiddleLR.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));
UpperLR.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));
LowerLR.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));``````

@SleepyZ Thank you. This is quite telling and can be used as breakouts as well as S/R zones.
Take a look at SPY today.
Would be better if I didn't have to set chart to today.

Check out how accurate this Anchored LRC is for the entire day. It really helps to know when price may reverse or break and retest. Not really any different than S/R levels with the exception that the S/R moves with the slope of the channel. See images for example. @SleepyZ Is there a way to write this so that I don't have to have chart TF set to today? Curious if it is possible.

Can my request above be accomplished. Allow the anchor to work with more days than just today?

This seems to work on multiple days chart timeframes for the last day's activity without having to set the chart to TODAY.

The image shows the code below at 5d2m. 1d2m and the original code's TODAY/2m only.

This will allow an input lookback to pick prior day's to be selected and plot to the right edge

Code:
``````#

#
#
#

input lookback      = 1;
input starttime     = 0400;
input endLRtime     = 0929;
input endplottime   = 1959;
input extendtoright = yes;
input extendtoleft  = no;
def ymd = GetYYYYMMDD();
def count = if ymd != ymd[1] and !IsNaN(close) then count[1] + 1 else count[1];
def cond  = HighestAll(count) - count + 1;

def price = if cond > lookback then 0 else if cond <= lookback and SecondsFromTime(endLRtime) >= 0 then price[1] else close;

def lrl = if cond > lookback then 0 else if SecondsFromTime(endplottime) > 0 then lrl[1] else InertiaAll(price,  startTime = starttime, extendToLeft = extendtoleft, extendToRight = extendtoright);
plot MiddleLR = lrl;

def dist = HighestAll(AbsValue(MiddleLR - price));
plot UpperLR = MiddleLR + dist;
plot LowerLR = MiddleLR - dist;

MiddleLR.SetDefaultColor(color.cyan);
UpperLR.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));

This has been so good that it doesn't really make sense. Not to me anyway. More ppl may be interested in this if they trade intraday.
Check out spy today.

@SleepyZ Thank You! Can I get you to do one more addition to this if it is possible. Can you make the coefficient adjustable? or have two. I have noticed that some stocks work best with 1 and -1 coefficient and others work ith what you have this one set to.

**Also, just noticed that when I change the start time, It doesn't change.

An optional set of Upper/Lower standdeviations channel was added.

The settings for the Linear Reg Channel are set for stocks using for the Premarket Period, inerttiall() function that I do not have TOS code available to modify. The inertiaall function requires a starttime for it to work. So if you change the starttime, I am relying at this time for the function to do it correctly, but when I do change the starttime, all it seems to mostly do is truncate the lines.

If you are using this on SPY, you might want to use the settings in the image. Otherwise you will have to change the settings to hopefully make this work.

At this time, I would not recommend using this for more than the Premarket Period or adjusting the Premarket Period by changing the ending time to cover a different period from the starttime.
