Squeeze Clouds based on SMA and VWAP


Active member
These clouds consist of a deviation scaled sma, as well as a vwap scaled sma, these clouds may act as support and resistance because of the nature of being weighted by volume and standard deviation of set period, when the bands squeeze it may indicate a reversal or a weakening trend, when the bands expand the opposite is true.

When I copy and paste it gives me few errors in red . I delete those red code and it worked .
Hello German, I found that if I use a longer length as the first length and a shorter length as the second, the indicator worked better, I also used Fib lengths.

anyway, I converted your indicator into a binary w 3 MTF the red & green squares are a consensus vote

Here is the code
