try this. I added Bollinger trend as well.

I know I'm a bit late to the party here but I've found this to be a really useful indicator.

Any chance this can be translated into MTF @samer800? I gave it a shot but my ThinkScript-fu needs work (obviously).

Thank you @samer800... you are truly a god. I'll also go through and compare to the non MTF version to see what magic you made here get a bit better at this.

I did want to mention (in the case it might help you or someone else) that the study's plots will disappear (although the clouds will remain) when I add any new studies or edit any other studies currently displayed on that chart. And they will eventually "re-print" when I select a different ticker from my watchlist.

Does this happen on your end as well? Is there any way to optimize the script (or my system) so it doesn't "un-paint" when I edit other studies?

In any case, this is a great script and I really appreciate you taking the time to help out. It's much appreciated!
