Code:
plot Data = close;input n = 5;#hint n: For pivot and standard deviation 
input addAtPercentStDev = 75;#hint addAtPercentStDev: Add at this percent of standard deviation below previous low
input initialLots = 4;#hint initialLots: Set to preference
input lotsToAdd = 2;#hint lotsToAdd: Number of lots to add on a pull back 
input stDevMult = 2.0;#hint stDevMult: trail stop multiplier 
input labels = yes;

def openingLots = Max(4, initialLots);
def addedlots = Max(2, lotsToAdd);
AddLabel(initialLots < openingLots, " Error: Initial lots must be 4 or more ", Color.Cyan);
AddLabel(lotsToAdd < addedLots, " Error: Lots to add must be 2 or more ", Color.Cyan);
def h = high;

if c crosses above LP_high 
then confirmation_count[1] + 1 
else confirmation_count[1];
def confirmationX = if confirmation_count crosses above 0
then x else nan;
def confirmed = confirmation_count crosses above 0;

def ro;
def stc;

if confirmed {

retrace = Round(Max(retrace[1], l[1] - StDev[1] * addAtPercentStDev / 100) / tick, 0) * tick; 
}

def ro_reached = if confirmed then 0 else 
if h > ro then 1 else ro_reached[1];

Interesting to note the advanced market moves indicator fired along with the pivot script arrow on the hourly.

I am liking this. Thanks for sharing, J007RMC.

My coding skills are lacking - just starting to learn. I have tried to insert BUY / SELL commands to use the FloatingPL but just not getting it right. Would you please help? The following seems off and I know it can be written better to work with what you have done. I'm not sure how to adapt this to your initial order, the add to order, plus stops and trailing stops.

AddOrder(condition = confirmed, type = OrderType.BUY_TO_OPEN, price = close, name = "LE");
AddOrder(condition = stop_hit, type = OrderType.SELL_TO_CLOSE, price = close, name = "LX");
AddOrder(condition = trail_hit, type = OrderType.SELL_TO_CLOSE, price = close, name = "TrailStop");

Thanks,
Rick

Another fav of mine is swing waves gotta try it.. This post dot hi/lo
dots but does not work on moble.
Code:
# Trading Analysis Swing Waves
# Version 1.0.1
# 4/20/2015
#
# Author: Brian Strong ([email protected])
# MicroQuant
#

input MajorLeftStr = 13;
input MajorRightStr = 13;
input MinorLeftStr = 5;
input MinorRightStr = 5;
input SwingTickOffset = 2;
input AlertsOn = yes;

# This indicator must be applied to a bar interval larger than 5 ticks.

def offset = TickSize() * (HighestAll(high) - LowestAll(low)) * SwingTickOffset;

#Calculate Major Swings
def pivotH = if high > Highest(high[1], MajorLeftStr) and high > Highest(high[-MajorRightStr], MajorRightStr) then 1 else 0;
def pValH = if pivotH then high + offset else Double.NaN;
def pivotL = if low < Lowest(low[1], MajorLeftStr) and low < Lowest(low[-MajorRightStr], MajorRightStr) then 1 else 0;
def pValL = if pivotL then low - offset else Double.NaN;

#Plot Major Swings
plot MajorSwHigh = pValH;
MajorSwHigh.setpaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.POINTS);
MajorSwHigh.setLineWeight(5);
MajorSwHigh.setdefaultColor(Color.BLUE);
plot MajorSwLow = pValL;
MajorSwLow.setpaintingStrategy(paintingStrategy.POINTS);
MajorSwLow.setLineWeight(5);
MajorSwLow.setdefaultColor(Color.BLUE);

I highly recommend the swing waves, especially for trading swings..Throw up a stochastic and RSI. i set my rsi to 7 to use on the lower time frames.

Hum not sure really load it up most repaint but when it sets or 1-2 bars have no idea, larger time frames don't matter much to me I have direction. I'll start watching it closer now. For instance, if Apple sets a swing high or low, I,m in 15 min chart with a couple of other indicators. Download my chart share tell me what you think?
