Non-Repainting Indicator that sounds an alert for change in price spike in any direction on period M1 to H1.
You can use this indicator on any period from M1 to H1 without the need to configure any moving average period.
- Spike Alert - Set alert to true if you want to be notified by MT4 platform for each ordinary price spike. Same alert function since version 1.0.
- Impulse Alert - Set alert to true if you want to be notified by MT4 platform for price spikes that occur 1 minute from each other.
- Notification - Set notification to true if you want the notification to be sent to MT4 mobile app.
- Alert Type:
- Every Price Spike - if you want to be notified for every price spike that appears, regardless of its direction.
- Different Price Spike - if you only want to be notified of the first price spike that has a direction different from the existing trail of price spikes.
- Spike Position - Plots the microtrend after n positions from the first new price spike on a different impulse direction.
- Spike Position Alert - Alerts you when a new microtrend has just been plotted.
- Divergence Line - Set to true if you want the Divergence Line to appear.
- Divergence Name - Give the name of the Divergence Line.
- Bullish Divergence - Color to be used for the Divergence Line when it is bullish.
- Bearish Divergence - Color to be used for the Divergence Line when it is bearish.
- Look Back Bars - Set the number of bars for looking back and counting the number of consecutive price spikes of the same colour.
Global variables written
- [BI][Symbol][Direction] - It is the direction of the new price spike trail.
- [BI][Symbol][StartPrice] - It is the starting price of the new price spike trail.
- [BI][Symbol][Impulse] - It is the duration in minutes between each price spike and the previous one.
How to use
Wait for the adverse price spike trail to be completed, then fire a trade when you see a price spike that follows the trend. You may want to wait for the price spikes to form 3 in a row before firing a trade (using Spike Position and Spike Position Alert).
If the Divergence Line is sloping at a direction different from the price spike trail or has weakening strength width, it could indicate that the price spike trail is reversing soon.
- If the price spikes are closer together, the micro-trend is of a higher quality to trade.
- You can reduce the default look back bars to less than 100 if you want to consider the "concentration of the price spikes" within a smaller time period.
PrerequisitePlease ensure that you have the ZigZag indicator, as this indicator depends on it.
Data Window: "Up Signal" and "Down Signal" are renamed to "Up Spike" and "Down Spike".
Alert Messages have been improved so that it is easier to distinguish them from other alerts coming from different indicators.
Included a new feature, "microtrend quality" shown at first bar. It indicates the number of consecutive price spikes of same colour within the look-back period.
2. Updated a better product logo.
a) Bullish Microtrend - Capture number of price spikes after n position in Bullish Microtrend.
b) Bearish Microtrend - Capture number of price spikes after n position in Bearish Microtrend.
c) Elapsed - Capture the duration between each price spike and the previous one.
2) Original Alert as known in previous versions has now been renamed to Spike Alert.
3) Impulse Alert can now be configured to alert 1 minute price spikes.
4) Removed user inputs for Strengthening Volume, Weakening Volume widths.
The divergence line will now detect the volume at each price spike and auto-adjust its width.
5) All alerts have been toggled off by default.
6) Bug Fixes included:
a) Shifted the index to the right so that now the price spike is more aligned with the price in time.
b) Internal angle bug computation fixed.
Signal generation for start of new price spike trail can now be configured.
2) Included two more configurable parameters, spikePos and spikePosAlert;
i) SpikePos only plots the microtrend after n positions from the first new spike on a different direction.
ii) SpikePosAlert alerts the user when a new microtrend has just been plotted.
3) Alert messages replace wordings from Buy to Long and from Sell to Short.
A neutral line is added at the beginning when there is no price spike. It is white in color to indicate no price spikes when you first start the BiDirectional Indicator. This is a minor change. But you will need to update the index if using it as a custom indicator in an EA.
Notification Alert is added to BiDirectional Indicator (MT4)
1) Every Price Spike (for the scalper who wants to be alerted all the time)
2) Different Price Spike (only to be sent if they are uniquely different from the previous signals) - if you prefer to just know the change in price spike signal
