Make Or Break (MOB)



New member
Hi Guys,

Since this is my first post, before asking for some help I´d like to share a very useful toll (for me) to identify waves, on below link you´ll find thinkscript for Elliot Wave Oscillator with breakout bands as found on esignal, helps pretty well to identify wave 3 and wave 5.

Now I´d like to ask for some help from more experienced users, I came across with this code that seems to be MOB indicator (another esignal), I´m a newbie on thinkscrip so if some could give a hand will be much appreciated.

Awsome forum, look forward sharing trading ideas!


Rich (BB code):
_SECTION_BEGIN("MOB Simulation");

_N(Title = StrFormat("{{NAME}} - {{INTERVAL}} {{DATE}} Open %g, High %g, Low %g, Close %g (%.1f%%) {{VALUES}}", O, H, L, C, SelectedValue( ROC( C, 1 ) ) ));

//Plot Colored Candles :)
PlotOHLC(O ,H ,L ,C ,"Price",IIf(C>O,colorGreen,colorRed),styleCandle);

Offset = 5; //Recommended to use two sheets: one with 5 and another with 7, or maybe other offset value

Avgmov = Offset * MA (abs(ROC(C,1)) ,20);
per = LastValue(Avgmov) ;
numberOfBars = Cum(1);
Range = 0.01;
PS = TroughBars(L, per, 1) == 0;
Title = Title + StrFormat("AVGMOV %g|%g|%g
", Avgmov,per, numberOfBars);

xa = LastValue(ValueWhen (PS,numberOfBars,1)) ;//x from last trough
Ya = LastValue(ValueWhen (PS,L,1)) ;//y (Low) last trough

PR = PeakBars(H,per, 1) == 0;
xb = LastValue(ValueWhen (PR,numberOfBars,1)) ;//x from last peak
Yb = LastValue(ValueWhen (PR,H,1)) ;//y (High) last peak
Title = Title + StrFormat("PS %g|%g|%g|%g|%g|%g", PS,xa,ya,PR,xb,yb);

Trough_ReTest = abs((L/ya)-1) <Range;
Peak_ReTest = abs((H/yb)-1) <Range;
Trough_Cross = Cross(ya,C);
Peak_Cross = Cross(C,yb);

//UP = upSwing DN = downSwing

IIf(UP,-100* (yb-L)/(yb- ya),
100*(H-ya)/( yb-ya));//Retracement_ Value
InZone = C<yb & C>ya;//use it for filter to receive only signals that are in in the Retracement zone.
Buy = Trough_ReTest OR peak_Cross;

@Billy101 Thank you for the nice gesture. Where did you get the source code from and what does this MOB indicator do?

@Billy101 Awesome, thanks for the PDF as well. I edit your comment with a new link to the document instead of the Google one.

Hi! @Bluephire1914 , the script posted is on Amibroker AFL code. I posted so maybe more experienced TOS users could cnvert it. I´m still working on it, not done yet.
