Does anyone know how I can edit RAF study to only display Major Buys/Major Sells that are Overbought/Oversold. The way it is written is too messy for me.

Hi All, I've been browsing the site for a couple of months now and am attempting to learn options trading. I have been going through indicators as I try and form my trading style. I am very much interested in writing or customizing some indicators to suit me. I was hoping you all could provide me some information on the Ready Aim Fire indicator sold by Simpler Trading. I have read the thread regarding Carter's indicators. I understand there is no one indicator that is full proof but I would like to know what components are used for an indicator like RAF? I would like to build it myself ( I'm assuming it is a compilation of a few indicators) and would be happy to share here if I can complete it. This is my first post and if I have posted anything inappropriate please forgive me. Thank you so much, this is a very amazing community!

Quick update to this. I also saw the thread that indicated the RAF was just a retooled FisherTransform. I've already taken that study and converted it to a histogram plot. I'm also using the onebarback variable in that indicator with the CCI +-/100 for to plot visual alerts. Hopefully I'm on the right track. Appreciate any info you all can share, thanks so much.

Hi cherif. I just went into the default code and changed the plot to a histogram.

Code:
FT.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);
I am also plotting the crossing of "fish" and "FTOneBarBack" up and down signals with arrows on a separate upper study above and below candles.
In the image below:
  • Red Down Arrows are are both when "fish" crosses below "FTOneBarBack" and when the same happens within 2 bars and CCI crosses below -100
  • CYAN Up Arrows are when "fish" crosses above "FTOneBarBack"
  • GREEN Up Arrows are when "fish" crosses above "FTOneBarBack" within 2 bars and CCI crosses above +100
This is on the 1 minute chart and therefore is very noisy. Ultimately I would like to clean this up some. I also try and use 5m, 15m charts with the same study's for confirmation as well as the EMA's and VWAP in the image for confirmation before any attempted entry.

@dvorakm I just unchecked the show plot for the moderate/minor signals and minor/moderate buy/sell signals.

@cos251 Have you made any heads or tails on reverse engineering Carter's RAF indicator? Great respect for him as a trader and I love his squeeze strategy, but his indicators are way over priced. Saw a short preview of his RAF and was intrigued. Thanks for any help you can provide!

I can post the code to the Old RAF Indicator if someone wants to try and re-work it. just let me know

Please get that code to @cos251 by any means necessary! ;)

I think Carter releases these "Pro" versions in order to squeeze more money out of an indicator. Likely just a few tweaks and he unrolls a new "Pro" version along with a series of paid webinars, etc. Again, I have great respect for Carter as a trader but his indicator racket annoys me.

Agreed BenTen. If anyone can tell me what the indicator is using outside of the FisherTransform I'm happy to hack away at it.

I can also add that from the chart I posted above, I'm using the FisherTransform and CCI in combination as an upper study to provide indication of turning points on multiple timeframes. I have found this to be a great indicator but obviously needs a lot of refining.
