# Twiggs Money Flow Indicator for ThinkorSwim

I seen people talk about the Twiggs Money Flow but I could not find it any where, so here is a version of it.

Code:
``````declare lower;
input periods = 21;
input over_Bought = .20;
input over_Sold = -.20;

def C = close;

def H = high;

def L = low;

def V = volume;

def TRH = Max(H,C[1]);

def TRL = Min(L, C[1]);

def TR = TRH - TRL;

def ADV =((C-TRL)-(TRH-C))/ (If TR == 0 then 999999 else TR) * V;

plot NewCMF = if WildersAverage(V,periods) == 0

then 0

else WildersAverage(ADV, periods) / WildersAverage(V, periods);

plot ZeroLine = 0;

ZeroLine.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));

plot OverSold = over_Sold;
plot OverBought = over_Bought;

NewCMF.DefineColor("OverBought", GetColor(5));
NewCMF.DefineColor("Normal", GetColor(7));
NewCMF.DefineColor("OverSold", GetColor(1));
NewCMF.AssignValueColor(if  NewCMF > over_Bought then  NewCMF.color("OverBought") else if  NewCMF < over_Sold then  NewCMF.color("OverSold") else  NewCMF.color("Normal"));``````

Hello German,

I added a moving average to the CMF as a signal, also added a cloud

Code:

I have created your money flow indicator into a binary signal w 3 MTF. The triangles are Cyan if the MF is Bullish, Red when overbought, Magenta when Bearish and Green when oversold

An image of the indicator would be nice

thank you so much @henry1224, cant wait to try it.

@zeek You couldn't post an image?

@henry1224 Thank you for your contribution - I like it and it is testing well when I use it with a 20EMA strategy

like this indicator for scalping thank youuu

Henry when I put this into TOS nothing shows up, any ideas?

You need to align your timeframes when using the SECOND script in the post you quoted.
The indicator looks at 5min, 30min, and Hourly aggregations.

The timeframe of your chart MUST BE lower than the aggregations in the study.
Therefore, if using the defaults, this study can only be used on charts set with 4min and below timeframes.

You can change the default aggregations in chart settings.
When adjusting the timeframe settings, keep in mind that the timeframes in the script must be HIGHER than what you have your chart set at.

Hello German,

Hi! What does Input LengthA mean? what happens when you make it higher or lower? Thank you!

LengthA smoothes out the plot. Smoothing factors typically do not get any higher than 5, but you can try lower.
Recommend you put it on your chart. Nothing beats personal experience The only way you will know what works best for you is to play with the settings and see how the indicator line up w/ your strategy and with your other indicators. To determine if this indicator brings value, analyze it over different timeframes, across history and with multiple instruments.
