12:1 Indicator

v10.3
12:1 Indicator

I spotted this simple idea here:

https://blog.thinknewfound.com/2018/03/protect-participate-managing-drawdowns-with-trend-following/

and thought that I would convert it to an indicator.

The original intention is for it to be a longer term trend indicator on monthly charts to get an idea of overall market sentiment but there is no reason why it cannot be used on shorter time frames and with different ratios.

The indicator consists of taking the gain or loss over the last 12 month period and subtracting the gain or loss from the last months period. If the result is above zero then the sentiment is bullish and if below it is bearish. Obviously you would need to check this after the last months candle has closed.

You can change the ratio in the indicator by changing Period and Period2 from 12 and 1 to any other ratio such as 24:3 for example.

The output is in histogram form with the height of the histogram being the value returned from the calculation. Green is bullish and red is bearish.

Try it on other time frames and with different ratios.

ITF file attached which I recommend importing instead of cut and pasting the code.
