Supertrend Alert with Arrows and Time Filter

Overview
This script is designed to generate trading signals based on the Supertrend indicator, a popular technical analysis tool. The Supertrend indicator is used to identify the direction of the market trend and potential reversal points.

Supertrend Settings
The script uses two sets of Supertrend settings:

Small Supertrend
  • Factor: 3.0
  • ATR Period: 10

Big Supertrend
  • Factor: 10.0
  • ATR Period: 30

These settings are fixed and should not be altered to maintain the integrity of the signal generation process.

Configurable Parameters
  • startHour: The hour at which signal generation begins.
  • endHour: The hour at which signal generation ends.
These parameters allow users to focus on specific trading hours, optimizing the signal relevance to their trading strategy.

Signal Types
The script generates two types of signals:

Type 1: Reversal Signal
  • Long Signal: Triggered when the big Supertrend is in an uptrend, and the small Supertrend transitions from a downtrend to an uptrend.
  • Short Signal: Triggered when the big Supertrend is in a downtrend, and the small Supertrend transitions from an uptrend to a downtrend.

Type 2: Trend Change Signal
  • Long Signal: Triggered when the big Supertrend changes from a downtrend to an uptrend.
  • Short Signal: Triggered when the big Supertrend changes from an uptrend to a downtrend.

How the Script Works
  • Initialization: The script initializes with predefined Supertrend settings.
  • Data Input: Market data (e.g., price data) is fed into the script.
  • Supertrend Calculation: The script calculates the Supertrend values using the predefined factors and ATR periods.
  • Signal Detection: The script monitors the Supertrend values and detects the defined signals based on the conditions mentioned above.
  • Time Filtering: Signals are filtered based on the specified startHour and endHour, ensuring only relevant signals are displayed within the desired timeframe.

    Usage
  • Set Parameters: Define startHour and endHour according to your trading schedule.
  • Run Script: Execute the script with market data input.
  • Interpret Signals: Monitor the generated signals and use them to inform your trading decisions.

    Originality
  • Dual Supertrend Usage: The use of both a small and a big Supertrend to generate signals adds a layer of complexity and reliability to the signals.
  • Time-Based Filtering: Allows traders to focus on specific trading hours, enhancing the relevance and accuracy of signals.
  • Two Signal Types: The combination of reversal signals and trend change signals provides comprehensive market insights.

Conclusion
This Supertrend Signal Generator is a robust tool for traders seeking to leverage the Supertrend indicator for more informed trading decisions. By combining dual Supertrend settings and configurable trading hours, the script offers unique and flexible signal generation capabilities.

I am having difficulty with this particular SuperTrend.
After playing with the lengths, I still couldn't get it to align with other basic indicators such as moving averages and oscillators for any consistent confirmation.

That said, I do find that the two-length approach to SuperTrend is superior.
For example, here is @samer800 2-length SuperTrend interpretation which provides excellent definition of trend and aligns better with day trader's traditional charts:

Put both of these 2-length Supertrend studies on your chart.
Which works best for you?
