Trend Checker

v10.3
Trend Checker

Trend Checker is a simple indicator that allows you to quickly and easily check long, medium and short term trends. It has eight rows that can each be set to display the overall trend for whatever look back period you choose. It simply compares the price now to the price at the beginning of each look back period and decides if it is up or down and displays a green or red arrow.

Works on all markets and all time frames although you will have to set each period for the chosen time frame as required.

For example if you apply the indicator to a 1 hour chart you may wish to set periods of 1, 4, 24 and 144 to represent 1 hour, 4 hour, 1 day and 1 week periods. On a daily chart you might have 1, 6, 24, 96, and 312 to represent 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 1 year. You can choose whatever periods you like in whatever order you like and you can turn any row off by setting it to zero. So you can have very long term trends in the top half then a gap and shorter term trends in the bottom half – the options are endless!

The price used can be set to any of the following by changing the PriceType setting to:

0 – Close

1 – Open

2 – Total Price

3 – Typical Price

4 – Weighted Close

5 – Median Price

Under each arrow is shown the number of the period it represents. If you do not want this then untick the ‘NumbersOnOff’ box.

I advise downloading the itf file rather than cut and paste to ensure you get all the functions to work correctly.

    Hi Vonasi, i have a question for you, the comand “pricetype” where did you found it in the manual of prorealtime?

    • Vonasi • 223 days ago #

      PriceType is just a variable that I use. The value decides what type of price is used in the calculations. If you download the ITF file and import and then add the indicator you can then click on the spanner and change the PriceType value as follows:

      0 – Close
      1 – Open
      2 – Total Price
      3 – Typical Price
      4 – Weighted Close
      5 – Median Price

    I noticed a couple of typo errors in the code. The list of variables lines 4 to 11 should be //Row1 //Row2 //Row3 etc to 8 and not //Row1 //Row1 //Row1 etc. Just in case someone wants to remove the // and enter the values manually. If you install the ITF and change the values in the indicator windows this is irrelevant.
    The other minor error is that line 40 should read PT = close so that the indicator defaults to close for any incorrect value entered. If you don’t change this minor error then you just don’t get any arrows for an incorrect value.
