Blockunity Regime Monitoring (BRM)Efficiently analyze market conditions and detect overheating zones.
Regime Monitoring (BRM) is here to help you analyze the behavior of financial markets. The oscillator allows you to observe when an asset’s trend is likely to reverse. The trend is also given by the indicator, as is the phase the market is in (trending or congested). The BRM also provides the state of the Choppiness Index, indicating whether or not the asset is about to enter a more volatile phase.
The Idea
The goal is to provide the community with a comprehensive tool for tracking market conditions, with a visual approach to identifying overheating zones.
How to Use
This tool consists of 3 main components:
An oscillator, which we describe in detail below.
Bar color to transcribe oscillator information directly onto the graph. To activate Bar Color, make sure the first option is checked in the settings. You must also uncheck "Borders" and "Wick" in your Chart Settings.
A panel that summarizes the status of various indicator information.
Elements
The Regime Monitoring oscillator
The oscillator provides several information points. First, it gives the market trend of the asset:
Green: Bullish trend.
Red: Bearish trend.
Blue: Contested trend.
It then indicates areas of overheating, where it is considered statistically probable that we will see a change in trend dynamics. These moments are shown in yellow.
This market trend is also indicated in the table.
If you see that the oscillator is above or below these limits, but not yellow, this is because we use a Choppiness Index to filter this information.
The "Enable Choppiness Index Filter" is enabled by default in the settings. So, if the Chop is discharged (under 38.2), then the oscillator's overheating state is ignored.
You can see the difference in the images below, the first with the filter and the other without:
Market Phase
We use a Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) to define the market phase the asset is in. This phase can have two values:
Trending: Assets evolve within a trend.
Congestion: The asset is in a moment of congestion.
Chop State
Visualize the Choppiness Index, indicating whether an asset is gearing up to enter a phase of increased volatility. It can be:
Charged: Chop is considered to indicate to be entering a stable phase.
Neutral: Chop is neutral and does not provide any specific information.
Discharged: Chop is considered to indicate a continuation of the trend.
In addition, with the "Show Choppiness Index" option, you can plot the Chop on the oscillator:
Other Settings
You can also modify the standard Regime Monitoring parameters (Lookback, Smoothing, Limits), display or hide certain components, and change all the colors.
How it Works
Regime Monitoring's main oscillator is established as follows:
We calculate the percentage of times the closing price was higher than the opening price. This is then divided by a lookback period, which in this case defaults to 20. This calculation gives a probability of the current regime.

VHF Adaptive Linear Regression KAMAIntroduction
Heyo, in this indicator I decided to add VHF adaptivness, linear regression and smoothing to a KAMA in order to squeeze all out of it.
KAMA:
Developed by Perry Kaufman, Kaufman's Adaptive Moving Average (KAMA) is a moving average designed to account for market noise or volatility. KAMA will closely follow prices when the price swings are relatively small and the noise is low. KAMA will adjust when the price swings widen and follow prices from a greater distance. This trend-following indicator can be used to identify the overall trend, time turning points and filter price movements.
VHF:
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX DI. Vertical Horizontal Filter does not, itself, generate trading signals, but determines whether signals are taken from trend or momentum indicators. Using this trend information, one is then able to derive an average cycle length.
Linear Regression Curve:
A line that best fits the prices specified over a user-defined time period.
This is very good to eliminate bad crosses of KAMA and the pric.
Usage
You can use this indicator on every timeframe I think. I mostly tested it on 1 min, 5 min and 15 min.
Signals
Enter Long -> crossover(close, kama) and crossover(kama, kama )
Enter Short -> crossunder(close, kama) and crossunder(kama, kama )

VHF-Adaptive CCI [Loxx]VHF-Adaptive CCI is a CCI indicator with adaptive period inputs using vertical horizontal filtering.
What is CCI?
The Commodity Channel Index ( CCI ) measures the current price level relative to an average price level over a given period of time. CCI is relatively high when prices are far above their average. CCI is relatively low when prices are far below their average. Using this method, CCI can be used to identify overbought and oversold levels.

Loxx's Expanded Source Types

VHF Adaptive ADXm [Loxx]VHF Adaptive ADXm is a variation of the ADX DI indicator with adaptive filtering using a vertical horizontal filter.
What is ADXm?
Unlike the traditional ADX indicator, where the ADX itself is plotted in absolute units and detection of the trend direction is hindered, this indicator clearly displays the positive and negative ADX half-waves (displayed as colored on the chart). And the DI+/- signals are displayed as their difference (gray).
The method of using this indicator is the same as the traditional one.
In addition, it displays the levels (dashed), above which the market is considered to be in a trend state. This level is usually set to approximately 20-25 percents--somewhat depends on the time frame it is used on.

Pips Stepped VHF-Adaptive VMA w/ Expanded Source Types [Loxx]Pips Stepped VHF-Adaptive VMA w/ Expanded Source Types is a volatility adaptive Variable Moving Average (VMA) with stepping by pips.
What is Variable Moving Average (VMA)?
VMA (Variable Moving Average) is often mistakenly confused with the VIDYA (Volatility Index Dynamic Average) which is not strange since Tushar Chande took part in developing both. But the VMA was preceding the VIDYA and should not be mistaken for it.
What is Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF)?
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX in the Directional Movement System. Trend indicators can then be employed in trending markets and momentum indicators in ranging markets.
VMA, as is, is a "good candidate" for this type of filtering since it tends to produce prolonged periods of nearly horizontal values when the volatility of the market is low, so, when the step filtering is applied to it, the small slope changes that are happening as a results of the semi EMA calculation are filtered out, and signals are becoming more usable.

What is an adaptive cycle, and what is Ehlers Autocorrelation Periodogram Algorithm?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 135:
"Adaptive filters can have several different meanings. For example, Perry Kaufman's adaptive moving average (KAMA) and Tushar Chande's variable index dynamic average (VIDYA) adapt to changes in volatility . By definition, these filters are reactive to price changes, and therefore they close the barn door after the horse is gone.The adaptive filters discussed in this chapter are the familiar Stochastic , relative strength index (RSI), commodity channel index (CCI), and band-pass filter.The key parameter in each case is the look-back period used to calculate the indicator. This look-back period is commonly a fixed value. However, since the measured cycle period is changing, it makes sense to adapt these indicators to the measured cycle period. When tradable market cycles are observed, they tend to persist for a short while.Therefore, by tuning the indicators to the measure cycle period they are optimized for current conditions and can even have predictive characteristics.
The dominant cycle period is measured using the Autocorrelation Periodogram Algorithm. That dominant cycle dynamically sets the look-back period for the indicators. I employ my own streamlined computation for the indicators that provide smoother and easier to interpret outputs than traditional methods. Further, the indicator codes have been modified to remove the effects of spectral dilation.This basically creates a whole new set of indicators for your trading arsenal."
What is this Hilbert Transformer?
An analytic signal allows for time-variable parameters and is a generalization of the phasor concept, which is restricted to time-invariant amplitude, phase, and frequency. The analytic representation of a real-valued function or signal facilitates many mathematical manipulations of the signal. For example, computing the phase of a signal or the power in the wave is much simpler using analytic signals.
The Hilbert transformer is the technique to create an analytic signal from a real one. The conventional Hilbert transformer is theoretically an infinite-length FIR filter. Even when the filter length is truncated to a useful but finite length, the induced lag is far too large to make the transformer useful for trading.
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, pages 186-187:
"I want to emphasize that the only reason for including this section is for completeness. Unless you are interested in research, I suggest you skip this section entirely. To further emphasize my point, do not use the code for trading. A vastly superior approach to compute the dominant cycle in the price data is the autocorrelation periodogram. The code is included because the reader may be able to capitalize on the algorithms in a way that I do not see. All the algorithms encapsulated in the code operate reasonably well on theoretical waveforms that have no noise component. My conjecture at this time is that the sample-to-sample noise simply swamps the computation of the rate change of phase, and therefore the resulting calculations to find the dominant cycle are basically worthless.The imaginary component of the Hilbert transformer cannot be smoothed as was done in the Hilbert transformer indicator because the smoothing destroys the orthogonality of the imaginary component."
What is the Dual Differentiator, a subset of Hilbert Transformer?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 187:
"The first algorithm to compute the dominant cycle is called the dual differentiator. In this case, the phase angle is computed from the analytic signal as the arctangent of the ratio of the imaginary component to the real component. Further, the angular frequency is defined as the rate change of phase. We can use these facts to derive the cycle period."
What is the Phase Accumulation, a subset of Hilbert Transformer?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 189:
"The next algorithm to compute the dominant cycle is the phase accumulation method. The phase accumulation method of computing the dominant cycle is perhaps the easiest to comprehend. In this technique, we measure the phase at each sample by taking the arctangent of the ratio of the quadrature component to the in-phase component. A delta phase is generated by taking the difference of the phase between successive samples. At each sample we can then look backwards, adding up the delta phases.When the sum of the delta phases reaches 360 degrees, we must have passed through one full cycle, on average.The process is repeated for each new sample.
The phase accumulation method of cycle measurement always uses one full cycle's worth of historical data.This is both an advantage and a disadvantage.The advantage is the lag in obtaining the answer scales directly with the cycle period.That is, the measurement of a short cycle period has less lag than the measurement of a longer cycle period. However, the number of samples used in making the measurement means the averaging period is variable with cycle period. longer averaging reduces the noise level compared to the signal.Therefore, shorter cycle periods necessarily have a higher out- put signal-to-noise ratio."
What is the Homodyne, a subset of Hilbert Transformer?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 192:
"The third algorithm for computing the dominant cycle is the homodyne approach. Homodyne means the signal is multiplied by itself. More precisely, we want to multiply the signal of the current bar with the complex value of the signal one bar ago. The complex conjugate is, by definition, a complex number whose sign of the imaginary component has been reversed."
What is the Instantaneous Cycle?
The Instantaneous Cycle Period Measurement was authored by John Ehlers; it is built upon his Hilbert Transform Indicator.
From his Ehlers' book Cybernetic Analysis for Stocks and Futures: Cutting-Edge DSP Technology to Improve Your Trading by John F. Ehlers, 2004, page 107:
"It is obvious that cycles exist in the market. They can be found on any chart by the most casual observer. What is not so clear is how to identify those cycles in real time and how to take advantage of their existence. When Welles Wilder first introduced the relative strength index (rsi), I was curious as to why he selected 14 bars as the basis of his calculations. I reasoned that if i knew the correct market conditions, then i could make indicators such as the rsi adaptive to those conditions. Cycles were the answer. I knew cycles could be measured. Once i had the cyclic measurement, a host of automatically adaptive indicators could follow.
Measurement of market cycles is not easy. The signal-to-noise ratio is often very low, making measurement difficult even using a good measurement technique. Additionally, the measurements theoretically involve simultaneously solving a triple infinity of parameter values. The parameters required for the general solutions were frequency, amplitude, and phase. Some standard engineering tools, like fast fourier transforms (ffs), are simply not appropriate for measuring market cycles because ffts cannot simultaneously meet the stationarity constraints and produce results with reasonable resolution. Therefore i introduced maximum entropy spectral analysis (mesa) for the measurement of market cycles. This approach, originally developed to interpret seismographic information for oil exploration, produces high-resolution outputs with an exceptionally short amount of information. A short data length improves the probability of having nearly stationary data. Stationary data means that frequency and amplitude are constant over the length of the data. I noticed over the years that the cycles were ephemeral. Their periods would be continuously increasing and decreasing. Their amplitudes also were changing, giving variable signal-to-noise ratio conditions. Although all this is going on with the cyclic components, the enduring characteristic is that generally only one tradable cycle at a time is present for the data set being used. I prefer the term dominant cycle to denote that one component. The assumption that there is only one cycle in the data collapses the difficulty of the measurement process dramatically."
What is the Band-pass Cycle?
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 47:
"Perhaps the least appreciated and most underutilized filter in technical analysis is the band-pass filter. The band-pass filter simultaneously diminishes the amplitude at low frequencies, qualifying it as a detrender, and diminishes the amplitude at high frequencies, qualifying it as a data smoother. It passes only those frequency components from input to output in which the trader is interested. The filtering produced by a band-pass filter is superior because the rejection in the stop bands is related to its bandwidth. The degree of rejection of undesired frequency components is called selectivity. The band-stop filter is the dual of the band-pass filter. It rejects a band of frequency components as a notch at the output and passes all other frequency components virtually unattenuated. Since the bandwidth of the deep rejection in the notch is relatively narrow and since the spectrum of market cycles is relatively broad due to systemic noise, the band-stop filter has little application in trading."
From his Ehlers' book Cycle Analytics for Traders Advanced Technical Trading Concepts by John F. Ehlers , 2013, page 59:
"The band-pass filter can be used as a relatively simple measurement of the dominant cycle. A cycle is complete when the waveform crosses zero two times from the last zero crossing. Therefore, each successive zero crossing of the indicator marks a half cycle period. We can establish the dominant cycle period as twice the spacing between successive zero crossings."
What is Composite Fractal Behavior (CFB)?
All around you mechanisms adjust themselves to their environment. From simple thermostats that react to air temperature to computer chips in modern cars that respond to changes in engine temperature, r.p.m.'s, torque, and throttle position. It was only a matter of time before fast desktop computers applied the mathematics of self-adjustment to systems that trade the financial markets.
Unlike basic systems with fixed formulas, an adaptive system adjusts its own equations. For example, start with a basic channel breakout system that uses the highest closing price of the last N bars as a threshold for detecting breakouts on the up side. An adaptive and improved version of this system would adjust N according to market conditions, such as momentum, price volatility or acceleration.
Since many systems are based directly or indirectly on cycles, another useful measure of market condition is the periodic length of a price chart's dominant cycle, (DC), that cycle with the greatest influence on price action.
The utility of this new DC measure was noted by author Murray Ruggiero in the January '96 issue of Futures Magazine. In it. Mr. Ruggiero used it to adaptive adjust the value of N in a channel breakout system. He then simulated trading 15 years of D-Mark futures in order to compare its performance to a similar system that had a fixed optimal value of N. The adaptive version produced 20% more profit!
This DC index utilized the popular MESA algorithm (a formulation by John Ehlers adapted from Burg's maximum entropy algorithm, MEM). Unfortunately, the DC approach is problematic when the market has no real dominant cycle momentum, because the mathematics will produce a value whether or not one actually exists! Therefore, we developed a proprietary indicator that does not presuppose the presence of market cycles. It's called CFB (Composite Fractal Behavior) and it works well whether or not the market is cyclic.
CFB examines price action for a particular fractal pattern, categorizes them by size, and then outputs a composite fractal size index. This index is smooth, timely and accurate
Essentially, CFB reveals the length of the market's trending action time frame. Long trending activity produces a large CFB index and short choppy action produces a small index value. Investors have found many applications for CFB which involve scaling other existing technical indicators adaptively, on a bar-to-bar basis.
What is VHF Adaptive Cycle?
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX DI. Vertical Horizontal Filter does not, itself, generate trading signals, but determines whether signals are taken from trend or momentum indicators. Using this trend information, one is then able to derive an average cycle length.

Adaptive Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) [Loxx]Adaptive QQE is a fixed and cycle adaptive version of the popular Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) used by forex traders. This indicator includes varoius types of RSI caculations and adaptive cycle measurements to find tune your signal.
Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE):
The Qualitative Quantitative Estimation (QQE) indicator works like a smoother version of the popular Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator. QQE expands on RSI by adding two volatility based trailing stop lines. These trailing stop lines are composed of a fast and a slow moving Average True Range (ATR).
There are many indicators for many purposes. Some of them are complex and some are comparatively easy to handle. The QQE indicator is a really useful analytical tool and one of the most accurate indicators. It offers numerous strategies for using the buy and sell signals. Essentially, it can help detect trend reversal and enter the trade at the most optimal positions.
Wilders' RSI:
The Relative Strength Index ( RSI ) is a well versed momentum based oscillator which is used to measure the speed (velocity) as well as the change (magnitude) of directional price movements. Essentially RSI , when graphed, provides a visual mean to monitor both the current, as well as historical, strength and weakness of a particular market. The strength or weakness is based on closing prices over the duration of a specified trading period creating a reliable metric of price and momentum changes. Given the popularity of cash settled instruments (stock indexes) and leveraged financial products (the entire field of derivatives); RSI has proven to be a viable indicator of price movements.
RSX RSI:
RSI is a very popular technical indicator, because it takes into consideration market speed, direction and trend uniformity. However, the its widely criticized drawback is its noisy (jittery) appearance. The Jurk RSX retains all the useful features of RSI , but with one important exception: the noise is gone with no added lag.
Rapid RSI:

VHF Adaptive Cycle:

Vertical Horizontal Filter does not, itself, generate trading signals, but determines whether signals are taken from trend or momentum indicators. Using this trend information, one is then able to derive an average cycle length.
Band-pass Adaptive Cycle:
Even the most casual chart reader will be able to spot times when the market is cycling and other times when longer-term trends are in play. Cycling markets are ideal for swing trading however attempting to “trade the swing” in a trending market can be a recipe for disaster. Similarly, applying trend trading techniques during a cycling market can equally wreak havoc in your account. Cycle or trend modes can readily be identified in hindsight. But it would be useful to have an objective scientific approach to guide you as to the current market mode.
There are a number of tools already available to differentiate between cycle and trend modes. For example, measuring the trend slope over the cycle period to the amplitude of the cyclic swing is one possibility.
We begin by thinking of cycle mode in terms of frequency or its inverse, periodicity. Since the markets are fractal ; daily, weekly, and intraday charts are pretty much indistinguishable when time scales are removed. Thus it is useful to think of the cycle period in terms of its bar count. For example, a 20 bar cycle using daily data corresponds to a cycle period of approximately one month.
When viewed as a waveform, slow-varying price trends constitute the waveform's low frequency components and day-to-day fluctuations (noise) constitute the high frequency components. The objective in cycle mode is to filter out the unwanted components--both low frequency trends and the high frequency noise--and retain only the range of frequencies over the desired swing period. A filter for doing this is called a bandpass filter and the range of frequencies passed is the filter's bandwidth.

Aroon Oscillator of Adaptive RSI [Loxx]Aroon Oscillator of Adaptive RSI uses RSI to calculate AROON in attempt to capture more trend and momentum quicker than Aroon or RSI alone. Aroon Oscillator of Adaptive RSI has three different types of RSI calculations and the choice of either fixed, VHF Adaptive, or Band-pass Adaptive cycle measures to calculate RSI.
Arron Oscillator:
The Aroon Oscillator was developed by Tushar Chande in 1995 as part of the Aroon Indicator system. Chande’s intention for the system was to highlight short-term trend changes. The name Aroon is derived from the Sanskrit language and roughly translates to “dawn’s early light.”
The Aroon Oscillator is a trend-following indicator that uses aspects of the Aroon Indicator (Aroon Up and Aroon Down) to gauge the strength of a current trend and the likelihood that it will continue.
Aroon oscillator readings above zero indicate that an uptrend is present, while readings below zero indicate that a downtrend is present. Traders watch for zero line crossovers to signal potential trend changes. They also watch for big moves, above 50 or below -50 to signal strong price moves.
Wilders' RSI:

{Gunzo} Vertical Horizontal Filter (Trading ranges)Vertical Horizontal Filter indicator is a tool that can be used to identify market conditions (ranging or trending). It measures if the price is going vertical (uni-directional) or horizontal (non-directional).
OVERVIEW :
The Vertical Horizontal Filter is a technical analysis indicator created by Adam White in 1991. He described it in the “Issues of Futures” magazine for the first time. The indicator is only composed of one line that measures the level of trend activity.
If the VHF line is increasing, we consider that the trend is getting stronger (up-trend or down-trend). Otherwise, if the VHF line is decreasing, we consider that the trend is weakening (going sideways or even ranging) as the market is getting calmer
CALCULATION :
The level of trend activity is calculated as the ratio between the distance from the highest to the lowest value (on the last N days) and the movement of the closing price.
VHF = ( highest (high) – lowest (low) ) / sum( close – previous close)
SETTINGS :
VHF length : Length of the vertical horizontal filter (28 or 18 recommended)
VHF source : Source of the vertical horizontal filter (close recommended)
VHF smoothing length : Extra smoothing applied on the VHF line to filter noise (1 or 6 or 9 or 14 recommended)
Display ranging market rectangles : Display rectangles on the chart around the area where VHF is decreasing (ranging market)
Display trending market rectangles : Display rectangles on the chart around the area where VHF is increasing (trending market up or down)
Minimum rectangle size : Hide rectangles that are smaller than X candles
Display signal line : Display circles at the bottom of the chart with the raw VHF direction (green if increasing /red if decreasing)
Display VHF tops and bottoms : Display triangles if the VHF line is reaching a new high or new low over the last 100 candles. When consecutive triangles appear, it may be a sign that the current market conditions are ending. Green triangles mean the possible end of the ranging market and red triangles mean the possible end of the trending market.
VISUALIZATIONS :
This indicator has 3 possible visualizations :
Rectangles : the rectangles are drawn on areas where the VHF is decreasing (red) or increasing (green) for a minimum number of consecutive candles. The first candles of an area may not be representative of the market conditions as the VHF line is still in extreme values but going slowly in the opposite direction. The market conditions (ranging or trending) get stronger with the VHF line keeping the same direction.
Signal line : The signal line is the VHF raw data : the red circle is a decreasing VHF line, and the green circle is an increasing VHF line.
Tops and bottoms : The tops and bottoms are signals indicating that the VHF line is reaching extreme values, there is a high probability that the market conditions are going to change after that.
USAGE :
This indicator can be used as a filter for strategies based on other technical analysis indicators.
If you are using trending indicators like moving averages, you should consider using them only when the market is trending. You can use VHF increasing to confirm that the market is not ranging.
If you are using oscillating indicators like stochastic or commodity channel index, you may prefer using them when the market is ranging as trending indicators may not be useful. You can use the VHF decreasing to confirm that the market is ranging.

Alerts : Types of conditions to be used in the alerts, when set to "VHMA Direction Change" alerts are triggered once the VHMA is either rising or declining, else the alerts are based on the crosses between Src and the VHMA
Usage
The VHMA can be used as a fast or slow-moving average in a moving average crossover system, or as input for other indicators.
VHMA of with length = 25 and sma with length = 200.
VHMA with length = 25 used as input for the RSI with length = 14.
Details
The vertical-horizontal filter is a measure of the strength of the trend and lay in a (0,1) range, to calculate it you just need to divide the rolling range over with the rolling sum of the absolute price changes, squaring the result allow to get lower results with higher values of length .
Squared vertical horizontal filter with length = 50, the value is low when the market is ranging and high when trending.
To set the alerts go in the alert panel, click on create alert, and select VHMA in "condition", choose between the buy or sell alert. If Src = closing price or another indicator dependant on the closing price select in options "once per bar close", if the indicator using the opening or lagged closing prices values as input select "One per bar" instead.
Thanks
Thanks to AneoPsy for adding the color change, the idea to use two kinds of conditions for the alert, and for its feedback, you can follow him

and finally thanks to you for reading and for your support, only one last script left for the month, then we'll start July with some pretty interesting indicators, I hope you'll like them ^^/

Vertical Horizontal Filter BacktestVertical Horizontal Filter was initiated by Adam White. It was first published
in a magazine called “Issues of Futures” in August, 1991. The Vertical Horizontal
Filter (VHF) is a very common Indicator used by traders to find out the Phase of
a Price Trend. Normally, a price trend can be in a Trending Phase or a Congestion
Phase/Choppy Movement Phase. Adam White created this particular Technical Indicator
to determine whether prices are trending in a particular direction or are they going
through a transitional period. He used it to measure the range of Futures available
in the market.

Vertical Horizontal Filter VHF by KIVANÇ fr3762Vertical Horizontal Filter
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX in the Directional Movement System. Trend indicators can then be employed in trending markets and momentum indicators in ranging markets.
Vary the number of periods in the Vertical Horizontal Filter to suit different time frames. White originally recommended 28 days but now prefers an 18-day window smoothed with a 6-day moving average.
Trading Signals
Vertical Horizontal Filter does not, itself, generate trading signals, but determines whether signals are taken from trend or momentum indicators.
Rising values indicate a trend.
Falling values indicate a ranging market.
High values precede the end of a trend.
Low values precede a trend start.
I have added an option to plot a deafult value of 14 bar EMA too, to clarify the signals.
Formula
To calculate the Vertical Horizontal Filter:
Select the number of periods (n) to include in the indicator. This should be based on the length of the cycle that you are analyzing. The most popular is 28 days (for intermediate cycles).
Determine the highest closing price ( HCP ) in n periods.
Determine the lowest closing price (LCP) in n periods.
Calculate the range of closing prices in n periods:
HCP - LCP
Next, calculate the movement in closing price for each period:
Closing price - Closing price
Add up all price movements for n periods, disregarding whether they are up or down:
Sum of absolute values of ( Close - Close ) for n periods
Divide Step 4 by Step 6:
VHF = ( HCP - LCP) / (Sum of absolute values for n periods)
