Market Phase

Market Phase

Inspired by a script seen on TradingView, I translated and adapted this indicator.

It shows the relation of price against different period moving averages.

The arrows indicates possible retracements in a general trend direction, so they can be used as entry point.

No ground breaking math here, but I am finding very useful and some algo based on it is giving good results in demo live.

    AlexF, thanks for the market phase indicator; please, you could give an indication of how to set the resulting graph (color zones and line colors) in order to reproduce a visual effect similar to yours. Thanks again

    Set the “phases” as histograms with different shades of green and red for above/below zero. Set the other ma values as lines.

    Thanks for the post !
    Have you tried it with the volume indicator, maybe it gives another good restriction /confirmation for a trading strategy?
    At least I will try around with this indicator for a trendfollowing strategy.

    I added the (boring) coloring coding to this indicator, see below, so the indicator will immediatly be colored when you add it,

    // This indicator shows the relation of price against different period ma’s.
    // When put in daily Timeframe it gives the 1400 Day (= 200 Weekly) and the 200 ,100 an 50 Daily.
    // Features:
    // – The lines show the 200,100 and 50 ma in relation to the 1400 ma.
    // – The arrows indicate possible (retracement) entry points
    // Coded by AlexF

    if ma50 < 0 then
    r = 255
    g = 0
    b = 0
    r = 0
    g = 128
    b = 0
    if ma100 < 0 then
    r1 = 192
    g1 = 0
    b1 = 0
    r1 = 51
    g1 = 204
    b1 = 51
    if ma200 < 0 then
    r200 = 255
    g200 = 51
    b200 = 0
    r200 = 153
    g200 = 255
    b200 = 102
    if ma1400 < 0 then
    r14 = 162
    g14 = 43
    b14 = 30
    r14 = 204
    g14 = 255
    b14 = 153

    if dma50 < 0 then
    dr = 255
    dg = 0
    db = 0
    dr = 0
    dg = 128
    db = 0

    if dma100 < 0 then
    dr1 = 192
    dg1 = 0
    db1 = 0
    dr1 = 51
    dg1 = 204
    db1 = 51

    if dma200 < 0 then
    dr2 = 255
    dg2 = 51
    db2 = 0
    dr2 = 153
    dg2 = 255
    db2 = 102

    return ma1400 coloured(r14,g14,b14)style(histogram) as "1400 phase",ma200 coloured(r200,g200,b200)style(histogram) as "200 phase", ma100 coloured(r1,g1,b1)style(histogram) as "100 phase", ma50 coloured(r,g,b)style(histogram) as "50 phase", dma50 coloured(dr,dg,db)style(line,3) as "50", dma100 coloured(dr1,dg1,db1)style(line,3) as "100", dma200 coloured(dr2,dg2,db2)style(line,3) as "200", 0 as "zero"

    thanks, could you post somes algos suggestions to improve, based on this indicator?

  7. Jan Wind • 18 days ago #

    Hallo Winnie37,
    Not sure about your question,
    I will have investigate if I can make a new trading algo for myself based on this indicator. I am a trendfollowing trader, so I hope this indicator can contribute..

  8. winnie37 • 18 days ago #

    yes. “No ground breaking math here, but I am finding very useful and some algo based on it is giving good results in demo live” in description; I investigate too but not very good results for the moment…

  9. Jan Wind • 15 days ago #

    Also interesting to know what does not work, which set up you use, saves me investigating ! Do you mind sharing this ?

  10. winnie37 • 14 days ago #

    i just set the proorder like this: buy when 50/100/200 phase >0 and sell when under 0, good backtest but no effective trades in demo…strange thing…Ok to share 🙂
