### ***UPDATED***

Hello everybody, I wanted to share my first official indicator with the community incase it could be of use to anyone. Especially because there was no WAY this was getting done without giving that search bar a workout. My apologies if this is just another copy of something else on here, I did not see anything like it which is what inspired me to write it. I'm not much of a coder so this may be fairly primitive to the more experienced. I have not even begun to learn how to properly back test yet so I do not have any proof to show yet, but using it today kept me green. **UPDATED**

**ALSO BEFORE ANYBODY ASKS**I do NOT have a watchlist/scanner/alert system as that is all still beyond the scope of my knowledge at this time. Now on to the indicator:

Lower study developed to help scalp/day-trade in sideways or shorter range market. Plot line follows current price trend while histogram bars measure relative volume. Red Shaded areas on zero line indicate current time frame squeeze. Plot Points are a "nudge" on trend with above price line nudging down (bearish) and below nudging upwards (bullish). Arrows indicate a stronger push and potential trend change. Has tendency to provide early notice. Recommended for use with confirming TA.

Price trend line is based on built in Fisher Transform with stochastic formula. 2nd stochastic type formula is processed through a similar "filter" and used as reference changes in trend. Volume bars below zero line are below volume avg (relative volume ratio below 1) and switch to above zero line if they meet/cross avg. Strong shifts quickly followed by opposing "nudges" or "shoves" are often false signals or a sign of volatility/chop. False signals may also be seen or missed during excessive chop or large gaps in price.

Feedback is appreciated! Thank you

**Update**10/31/2021

Re-worked all the formulas for the plots and this should be much better. This is the current code with updated share link. Reminder: Due to the nature of it being stochastic based, times of higher volatility and larger price swings may give false signals and this indicator should not be taken as "buy"/"sell" signals. Added input for arrow plot adjustments as well.

**Update**11/2/2021

Sorry for not having a better working setup before sharing!!

- Bug fixes from last update. Cleaned up code a bit and adjusted formulas again for more accurate plots and less noise.
- Fixed relative volume bars not plotting correctly.
