What does ALL 5 orders | P/L $0.34 mean on the top left of chart ?

Thanks
Looks like it shows the backtest results by telling you the profits or losses generated (based on the green and red bubbles) in the certain timeframe you have selected. This is the first time I've seen an indicator with this feature, so I could be wrong.

Simply stated, there has been several implementations/variations of the Super Trend indicator. Mobius version is based on ATR, while this particular version from Linus is based on price, RSI, Ultimate Oscillator and Chandelier. Within the code is logic to determine the trend based on which a count of orders (using the designed algorithm) is made. The P&L label essentially is the result of that underlying algorithm.

I have also seen other implementations by Mobius of Supertrend with ATR CCI as well as other variations that make use of Heiken Ashi.
At the end of the day it really depends on the underlying base indicator of choice that floats your boat. When in doubt, always check the code.

@horserider Do you happen to have a SuperTrend that utilizes Heiken Ashi? I haven't seen any...

@HighBredCloud Since you asked here is Mobius SuperTrend with Heiken Ashi. I do not use this indicator myself

Code:
# Mobius
# SuperTrend HeikenAshi
# Chat Room Request
# V03.10.2015
# Up = (HIGH + LOW) / 2 + Multiplier * ATR
# Down = (HIGH + LOW) / 2 – Multiplier * ATR
# When the change of trend occurs, the indicator flips

# For RP: Add AR trend, Aberrant Vol, R State, PTR

input AtrMult = .70;
input nATR = 4;
input AvgType = AverageType.HULL;
input PaintBars = yes;
input BubbleOn = no;
input ShowLabel = no;
input AlertOn = no;
input PlotLine = no;

def HAopen;
def HAhigh;
def HAlow;
def HAclose;
HAopen = CompoundValue(1, (haopen[1] + haclose[1]) / 2, (open[1] + close) / 2);
HAhigh = Max(high, close[1]);
HAlow = Min(low, close[1]);
haclose = (HAopen + HAclose[1] + HAlow + close) / 4;
def v = volume;
def bar = barNumber();
def EOD = if SecondsTillTime(1545) == 0 and
             SecondsFromTime(1545) == 0
          then 1
          else 0;
def NotActive = if SecondsFromTime(1545) > 0
                then 1
                else 0;
def ATR = MovingAverage(AvgType, TrueRange(HAhigh, HAclose, HAlow), nATR);
def UP = HL2 + (AtrMult * ATR);
def DN = HL2 + (-AtrMult * ATR);
def ST = if close < ST[1]
         then Round(UP / tickSize(), 0) * tickSize()
         else Round(DN / tickSize(), 0) * tickSize();
plot SuperTrend = ST;
SuperTrend.SetHiding(!PlotLine);
SuperTrend.AssignValueColor(if close < ST then Color.RED else Color.GREEN);
SuperTrend.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.Line);
AssignPriceColor(if PaintBars and close < ST
                 then Color.RED
                 else if PaintBars and close > ST
                      then Color.GREEN
                      else Color.CURRENT);
plot ST_point = if isNaN(close[-1])
                then ST
                else double.nan;
ST_point.SetStyle(Curve.Points);
ST_point.SetLineWeight(3);
ST_point.SetDefaultColor(Color.Yellow);
# End Code SuperTrend HeikenAshi

I've been using this indicator live for some time now. I use price action, volume, and VWAP in conjunction with it. I'll just say this: If you use this indicator and trade with the trend, it is a very powerful tool for scalping on the 1m chart. I find it more accurate than other "super-trend" indicators because you get multiple colors based on momentum (green/red for strong trends, yellow orange for moderate/weak ones), and it doesn't repaint. It is genuinely accurate, and the most likely time you'll see false signals is when they are against the prevailing trend. However, I regularly remove the bubbles intraday once entering a position because they can be intrusive and cover active candles.

Hi Shintus, very nice job on this supercombobullbear, congrats, I'm trying to adapt it to multichart in easylanguage, but it's not easy to convert it !!! many different functions and in particular the compoundvalue, I have misery to say it with basic if conditions, because on multichart there is no compoundvalue. Could you please help me out with this ? Thanks a lot :)

@TradeDaTrend I have been watching this indicator on the side for a while now. I noticed that the buy/sell signals repaint.
I am curious to learn about your trade methodology using this indicator.

@Dom173 The original Supertrend posted here does not repaint. However, this "combo" version include other components so I'm not sure.

The bubbles are shown for the opening of renko bars. Is there a way to make the bubbles appear on the closing price?

hi, thank you for sharing this indicator with us, a quick question, i dont see the arrow in the study, how can i get it? also can you explain a little bit the system, i see orange candles, green candles and red candles, also what is those number green and red on top and bottom of candles, example: below a orange candle 175.25 and on top of a red candle -2.5. what that mean? thanks
