I'm looking for the Voodoo Lines and Prediction Points type indicators for ThinkorSwim. Someone made a sample script but for a different platform below.

Some traders were interested in "voodoo lines" and "gravity points", and other hocchie-coochie lines. I came across the Voodoo Lines indicator from SimplerTrading but D. K. and J. C. failed to provide a tradable method. My idea would be to put eight equidistant and stationary lines across the chart. You would trade with the trend, or against the trend. If bullish stay with the trend until the candle crosses one level down.

Code:
``````once ELow = 666.4
once EHigh = 1220.1
// Number of levels 1-3
levels = 3

// Fire lines
if levels >= 1 then
once F1 = Elow
once F2 = Ehigh
once F3= (Ehigh-Elow)*0.618 + Ehigh
once F4 = (Ehigh-Elow)*1.618 + Ehigh
once F5 = (Ehigh-Elow)*3.236 + Ehigh
endif

//Three lines
if levels >= 2 then
once T1 = F1 + (F2-F1)*0.382
once T2 = F1 + (F2-F1)*0.618
once T3 = F2 + (F3-F2)*0.382
once T4 = F2 + (F3-F2)*0.618
once T5 = F3 + (F4-F3)*0.382
once T6 = F3 + (F4-F3)*0.618
once T7 = F4 + (F5-F4)*0.382
once T8 = F4 + (F5-F4)*0.618
endif

//Snow lines
if levels >= 3 then
once S1 = F1 + (T1-F1)*0.382
once S2 = F1 + (T1-F1)*0.618
once S3 = T1 + (T2-T1)*0.382
once S4 = T1 + (T2-T1)*0.618
once S5 = T2 + (F2-T2)*0.382
once S6 = T2 + (F2-T2)*0.618
once S7 = F2 + (T3-F2)*0.382
once S8 = F2 + (T3-F2)*0.618
once S9 = T3 + (T4-T3)*0.382
once S10 = T3 + (T4-T3)*0.618
once S11 = T4 + (F3-T4)*0.382
once S12 = T4 + (F3-T4)*0.618
once S13 = F3 + (T5-F3)*0.382
once S14 = F3 + (T5-F3)*0.618
once S15 = T5 + (T6-T5)*0.382
once S16 = T5 + (T6-T5)*0.618
once S17 = T6 + (F4-T6)*0.382
once S18 = T6 + (F4-T6)*0.618
once S19 = F4 + (T7-F4)*0.382
once S20 = F4 + (T7-F4)*0.618
once S21 = T7 + (T8-T7)*0.382
once S22 = T7 + (T8-T7)*0.618
once S23 = T8 + (F5-T8)*0.382
once S24 = T8 + (F5-T8)*0.618
endif``````

If anyone can convert to thinkscript that would be great.

Update: This is what I have from Syracuse voodoo.

Code:
``````#SyracusePro

declare upper;

input symbol_1 = "FB";
input symbol_5 = "NFLX";
input symbol_6 = "SPY";
input symbol_7 = "QQQ";
input symbol_8 = "/CL";

def Start;
def Finish;

if (GetUnderlyingSymbol() == symbol_1)
{

Start = 17.55;
Finish = 32.51;

}
else if (GetUnderlyingSymbol() == symbol_5)
{
Start = 7.54;
Finish = 28.23;

}
else if (GetUnderlyingSymbol() == symbol_6)
{
Start = 77.07;
Finish = 157.52;
}
else if (GetUnderlyingSymbol() == symbol_7)
{
Start = 120.5;
Finish = 72.5;
}
else if (GetUnderlyingSymbol() == symbol_8)
{
Start = 9.75;
Finish = 41.15;

}
else
{
Start = Double.NaN;
Finish = Double.NaN;

No idea since we don't have access to those premium indicators. Maybe you can give these alternatives a try?

New member
I'm not an expert at coding but if you or anyone can code the fibgrid Droid auto swing high swing lows, for TOS that would be really great The alternatives are extremely expensive so don't want that direction. Thanks

I have used those alternatives you mentioned and they're really good but just looking and if we can get something which I posted that would be great.

Do you know what the original platform was? Elliott Waves are VooDoo. I've never seen anyone successfully write that code in ThinkScript or any other language for that matter. To many subjective variables.

All voodoo lines are fib extensions, expansions and retracements. You can use any ol' trading platform to draw your own! The code gives you the math you need to programing it, it should be straight forward. You can use "get" or "fetch" commands to get high and lows for defined period. I hope this helps. Also, FYI simpler just repackages stuff already invented! FYI this isn't rocket science .

10:09 Paris: It's basically a bunch of fib relationships. If you run a search query "voodoo thinkscript", you'll get some leads. Enough said.
10:09 MTS1: It's just multiple fib levels of a manually determined 'EW wave 1' range that can be adjusted; hence the subscription. Thre have been alternative posted here where you can do your own homework to set that initial range.

@HSNerd Not rocket science doesn't account for the fact that it still may be a pain in the *** to program and you can't compare it against the original to make sure your translation is correct.

First post! Glad to have found you.

I’ve recently been intrigued with W.D. Gann theory. I’ve been scouring the internet for script similar to my idea, but can’t find anything close to what I want so I tried my hand at coding. Long story short, I’m awful. I also posted this on Reddit, but it's dead there, so hoping for some help.

What I want is simple, that is horizontal lines, aka “tunnels”, at specified price levels. OR, a 10% color overlay between levels, say \$0-12, \$24-36, \$48-60, etc. Each way achieves the same desired outcome, they just look different.

In the end, it might be great to have all 12 sections of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc, selectable in the customizing window. But maybe having only one zodiac sign per study is best? Not sure yet.

Each sign has their own tunnels, but below is my script for Aries only. It seems extremely text heavy for something so simple. And, in the customizing window, you have to click each plot ON/OFF as to whether or not you want to see that specific level. It’s quite time consuming, hoping to avoid that. I can give the other zodiac levels in a future post, but they all follow the same formula, just add 12 to the previous one up to 360.

Also, color seems like it should be easier to script than what I have below. And, magnification is an issue when they're all turned on. Hopefully that can be fixed, too.

So, my question to the community is if a mathematical formula could somehow be used for the plot? Please have a look. And, thank you!

Code:
``````#ARIES
#Tunnels Through Time
#0-29° plot for W.D. Gann's Wheel of 12

plot theLine12 = 12;
plot theLine24 = 24;
plot theLine36 = 36;
plot theLine48 = 48;
plot theLine60 = 60;
plot theLine72 = 72;
plot theLine84 = 84;
plot theLine96 = 96;

@d4dahl Since you're into the Gann stuff, I found the following in my files from the Yahoo TOS Thinkscript group several years ago. Just something for you to check out. I must say all those lines look purty especially on a daily /ES chart. Sort of reminds me of John Carter's Voodoo Lines. Have fun out there!

Code:

The math and code are already laid out in the thread, the issue is picking the swing low and swing high of the elliot wave 1 for each individual stock. This can be done by opening up a long term chart and identifying elliot wave 1

@azmaestro The break script doesn't determine the initial levels, it just deobfuscates the "cp" numbers which are the initial swing low and swing high numbers for the lines. If you look at the syracusepro code posted above, the swing low and swing high numbers are listed for each ticker and not obfuscated. If you want to make your own lines you simply have to determine these numbers on your own chart

I ran Wolf wave, the support, and resistance similar to the voodoo line, for the time being, it's an alternative as the voodoo line is not being scripted by anyone yet. https://postimg.cc/1nnwLz7D/767c0482
Note that the 591 level of TSLA was exactly the same as the voodoo line SO has.

It's unlikely that it will be scripted since the initial data points come from outside of the scripts. However, it's something that can easily be accomplished by a community effort here if everyone understands the underlying principles of script and the lines.

The voodoo lines are all generated from the bottom two firelines. These two lines come from Elliot Wave 1 (the bottom of wave 1 and the top of wave 2) on a long-term chart. Elliot Waves are pictured here:

For example let's look at TSLA. I opened up the 2Y1D chart and drew Elliot Wave 1 (and possibly 2) on it. The bottom fire lines ended up being 35.4 and 188.96, with 35.4 conveniently being the low of the chart. Here is the drawing of Elliot Wave 1:

I used the ThinkScript code posted by OP and just plugged in the numbers I measured for TSLA and the lines were drawn (I deleted Snowlines for clarity). Pretty simple once you understand the concept behind the Elliot Wave/Fibonacci tools used to create the lines. Maybe a group of people can start maintaining the start/end values for various tickers. Hope this helps!

I think I am understanding, but how far back would you look back to? For example, the current entry on QQQ is 120.5 and 72.5, which corresponds to the very start of the chart 20-year chart. However, that draws it far below where the QQQs are currently. So my question is, how do you know the next set of swings to use?

AgentDoubleOhh and RajB Let me know what you figure out. I have always been super interested in Voodoo lines. The problem is entering all the data for individual stocks would be crazy time-consuming. I bet there is a way to better codify Elliot wave theory where you wouldn't have to enter all that data manually.
So I have this but its old... and I know how to update it I just don't know what start and end numbers to use.

Well, that isn't really an Elliot wave indicator. That's more of a standard opening range indicator. Looks like it works fine on an intraday chart, so not sure what you mean by changing the start and end inputs.

Oooooops!! Wrong one. Here you go
Ok so played around with it for a while, and found that basically, the numbers are formatted like 00000xxxx000xxxx. The first row of x's is the high of the Elliot wave to two decimal places and the second row is the low value. I am not sure why but sometimes that is reversed and the lower value is first. The only other thing that changes is the first string of 00000. It is either 10000, 11000, 10000, 00000, 12000, and it changes the spacing of the lines. You really just need some method of finding those two inputs.

@RajB and @AgentDoubleOhh if either of you has a discord I would be down to message more about it. It's kinda hard to get much progress in a thread.

Most likely, the reason the QQQ's extend much further than the voodoo lines is that waves can extend. Are you guys trying to locate the part of the Elliot Wave code that identifies the end of each wave cycle so voodoo lines can automatically locate the next wave 1-2?
I have an elliot wave code for TOS and have adapted it to project the end of wave 3 and 5 with pretty good success.
I know very little about voodoo lines, but I know plenty on Elliot Wave. The real challenge comes with the corrective waves.
