Truedepth of ROC


Well-known member
While working on my other breakout indicator I ended up making this, as a trader look for a squeeze of the upper and lower ranges (range tighter then usual) with an accompanying move up or down of the true range.

input length1 = 8;
input length21 = 80;
input length31 = 4;
input price = close;
input BuyEntry3 = 10;
input SellEntry3 = 10;

assert(length1 > 0, "'length' must be positive: " + length1);
plot ROC = if price[length1] != 0 then (price / price[length1] - 1) * 100 else 0;
Assert(length21 > 0, "'length' must be positive: " + length21);

def QB3 = Highest(ROC, BuyEntry3);
def QS3 = Lowest(ROC, SellEntry3);
plot trueqb3 = QB3[1];
plot trueqs3 = QS3[1];
def squeeze = (trueqb3 - trueqs3) < 5;

plot bottom = 10;
plot top = -10;

So basically trade in the direction of the white line (ROC) crossing over the red line? Is this ONLY suitable for DAILY charts or any timeframe?
