Trend Following Bars (heatmap)

v10.3
Trend Following Bars (heatmap)

While analysing a chart, one of the biggest problem is to see if there is trend or not. While thinking about it, I found the idea to analyse moving averages in channel and their momentum according to channel width.

How it Works?

On each bar it creates a channel by highest/lowest point of a MA. highest point is upper line and lowest point is lower line of the MA channel,
It gets highest and lowest point of last 300 bars, (say Price Channel )
If the width of MA channel is greater than certain rate of price channel then it decides there is trend
After it decided there is trend, it calculates the rate between channel and MA. Bigger result means stronger trend.
According to rate of MA channel and the price channel , bar color becomes lighter/darker. so when you look at the bar color you can see the trend strength.

Similar indicator as the other published here: Trend Following Moving Averages(but with heatmap below the chart this time).
