mAcDX Reverser For ThinkOrSwim
Another fire indicator converted from my Sierra coded study collection. It looks for MACD at an extreme and ADX over 30 and turning, indicating that a strong trending condition is likely. Color bars are warning that price might turn soon. Arrow is entry.

Sorry, I don't understand the purpose of the "Preseller.." & "Prebuyer.." variables, they are exactly the same as the "seller.." and "buyer.." variables.

The "AssignPriceColor(..." statement could just use the "seller.." & "buyer.. variables, and the "Preseller.." & "Prebuyer.." variables would not be needed.

No, they are not the same. Pay close attention to the code. A small detail can make a big difference.

The first section of code is signaling when ADX makes a swing high. The second section of code is signaling when ADX makes three consecutive higher highs.

@Chence27 Thank you so much for sharing this code. I think it's awesome. Would you happen to have a scan for it?
