Hi All

I'm trying to develop an indicator that fully complies with the work of Tom Demark as detailed in his and Jason Perls books.  I have no problem in crediting them as the source of the strategy but wonder what the position is with their copyright/trademarks? 

I see a lot of indicators and EAs based on other peoples research but wonder if there is a need to get the their permission to use their work in something that I develop?

I'd appreciate any comments.

Are you sure that your indicator does not exist already? There is practically nothing that hasn't been coded for mt4/mt5!

There are various versions of it but I haven't found any that fully implement all of the rules as described in the books.  It is Sequential, Combo and maybe some others.
