I am wondering from people using this indicator, what is the most effective indicator to pair up with the trend reversal to confirm?

Does anyone out there have any idea why I am not seeing alerts? My version:

Code:
# Enhanced Trend Reversal Indicator with Signals
# Added VWAP and Engulfing Candles
# Assembled by BenTen at useThinkScript.com
# Original version: https://usethinkscript.com/threads/trend-reversal-indicator-with-signals-for-thinkorswim.183/
# Version 1.0 (read changelog in forum)

#
# Removed "VWAP and Engulfing Candles" and just kept the cleaned up code.
# Alerts are not working for me and I don't know why -- 5/20/20/MFS

I am wondering the same, what are you guys using to pair with it and improve its accuracy?

@Sohelator So the scanner is working? If so, you may want to select your own watchlist instead of the one ThinkorSwim gives you. That way you can be selective about the result.
I noticed that throughout this trendreversal dilemma and the repainting problem, even with the Easycator arriving to code the column, no one has found a fix. I saw that people were scanning "within two candle," I thought the scan was written for minimum of two candles, but even with a repaint and combining it with Hi_low and the scan Tomsk wrote, that I have not been able to locate on the site, this is a super indicator, placing it on SLM,.......may help, with bells and whistles stripped from the chart.........clean chart.

Hello! I have been playing around with this indicator by Ben that I think is pretty amazing. This is the link http://tos.mx/1we0QW. Does anyone have any suggestions of things I they can add to the code to make it more accurate or other indicators I can pair with it for better confirmation? Anything helps!

Someone shared this indicator via a thread on Futures forum. I don't know the original name so I called it the reversal indicator. It uses moving averages, ZigZag pattern, and Fibonacci to generate reversal signals on your chart.

One thing to note is that this indicator will repaint. The Buy and Sell signal will disappear if the candlestick closed above or below the stop loss line. You can use that as a trigger point to cut losses early if that happens.

  • Green = Buy Signal Bars
  • Purple = Neutral
  • Red = Sell Signal Bars

Hello! I have been playing around with this indicator by Ben that I think is pretty amazing. This is the link http://tos.mx/1we0QW. Does anyone have any suggestions of things I they can add to the code to make it more accurate or other indicators I can pair with it for better confirmation? Anything helps!
Did you read the entire thread....

I selected the bullish up Arrow but still getting the same error so.....Could you post the code I need to put into the scan for bullish.
Sorry to be a pain in the patootie :)
Did you hashtag# out the down, all the section would need hashtag#

@2sureshk You can create a strategy for this, however, the indicator repaint so it's pretty useless. I can tell you right now that you will get 100% win rate across all timeframes.
You should do a search on the word repaint, doesn't work, and refer that to the next question of why it doesn't work.....

Hey @BenTen,

I hate to be "that guy", but could you please provide proper attribution for that script? It was written by a person named Bayside in 2017 for a now defunct discord server name Enhanced Investor. Which is why you see the word "Enhanced" in the script and "EI" in the variable names.

I can provide addition proof if that's needed, I have all of his original scripts. But removing the attribution an adding your own name is a bit disingenuous.

I understand that you said "assembled by", but I'm sure everyone here thinks you wrote the script.

Unless you are Bayside? If that's the case, please let me know.

@codebeaulieu Thanks for letting me know about the author of this script. Before we get to that, can you kindly point out where I put "assembled by" in this script? The first thing I mentioned in this post was literally, "Someone shared this indicator via a thread on Futures forum. I don't know the original name so I called it the reversal indicator."

Secondly, if you scroll down a bit, I gave credit to a user by the name of SkinnyFry from Futures.io because that's where I found the script. If you compare the script found in this thread to the one on Futures.io, it's the same script; nothing was taken out or added in. Not sure what you mean by saying, "But removing the attribution an adding your own name is a bit disingenuous."

I went ahead and added "Bayside of Enhanced Investor" to the original post. Thanks again.
