WaveTrend Oscillator for ThinkorSwim [LazyBear]

Here's the WaveTrend Oscillator script for ThinkorSwim. Came LazyBear over at TradingView version that was ported from TS/MT, also known as "The Perfect Leading Indicator."

According to the Forex indicator:

It features a sophisticated algorithm which enables it to detect true reversals in a extremely accurate manner. The beauty of this indicator is that is does not generate signals during choppy sideways markets.

A Buy signal is generated based on the oscillator crosses above the signal while below the Oversold band. You'll see a Sell signal when the oscillator is above the overbought band and crosses down on the signal line.

I'm also happy to say that the WaveTrend signals does not repaint.

@BenTen hi. would this indicator be useful on daily charts? i am thinking of using it with a slowRSI to indicate overbought and oversold and therefore reversals. what do you think?

@cherif That would be interesting to check and backtest. I have not been able to go through this indicator for long so I definitely don't have any personal experience with it yet.

Redundant to TMO. Same calculations. Just use TMO and it already has the MTF. Why waste time on a second study or is it the arrows that are attractive?

Seems this is pretty much identical to PPO/MACD. Its a momentum based indicator using differences of different averages length

not just the upper arrows but the lower study with its matching arrows too not showing very well actually..... to go with showing the false signals
All you do is take off all the plots except for the last two then move the indicator to the price box.

I was just commenting about how the lower actual study when watching it was not doing well and showing the false signals so watching the upper study arrows without watching the whole study is like flying blind for a while at least with this study which I do not know very well yet or if ever ..that is all thanks for the info

I will share an approach on how to trade this when I get back from my travels. it's actually pretty good for intra day trading.

The Wave Trend Oscillator is a great tool. Is there a scan to identify when the Wt2_1 red dot first goes under the Wt1_1 line?

I have been using the following as an upper study and turning off everything but the arrows. The spacing is a little wonky though, obviously because it is a lower study. Can someone help get this as an upper study that only shows the arrows please? It will save space on my charts and others using Blake Mathis's setup.

Thanks!
