Wolf Waves Trendline Breakouts Indicator for ThinkorSwim


Staff member
As requested, here is the Wolf Waves indicator for ThinkorSwim. It automatically plots support and resistance on your chart, as well as trend lines that you can use to catch potential breakouts or breakdown.

This indicator was created by Mobius. As mentioned by the author, this is similar to other Pivot Studies that mark different types of breakouts.

Hi my friends. Please,

Where do I find this script to use it in the TOS Scanner tool to find the Stocks that have the indicator (S1) shown in the study to perform Call operations?

I find the wolf wave very interesting so for the wave counts and you have it here. I use wolf waves every day with amazing results same as pivots really

S3. Finishes out wave 5 to bottom

R3 top of wave 1

S2 bottom of wave 2

2 up to 3 top of wave 3

Down to wave 4

Wave 4 begins the sweet spot up to finish wave 5

Then wait for another wave to develop using the 5- 15 min you even throw a 2min chart up for fast markets

So my suggestion is to label the waves as 1-5

I just so not see many differences waves are waves really and waves subset in between larger waves although what I use gives me fib extensions/fractals that project up and down price points. Maybe a future project. Not sure how you can do the price extension other than on the connecting wave points but If you like I can offer more information pertaining to bullish/bearish numbered patterns 1-5 and direction synopsis? all points connect so we are talking about extensions based on fib probabilities...fractals. I am not a coder sorry
