PZ Divergence Trading
Tricky to find and scarce in frequency, divergences are one of the most reliable trading scenarios. This indicator finds and scans for regular and hidden divergences automatically using your favourite oscillator.
- Easy to trade

- Supports many well known oscillators
- Implements trading signals based on breakouts
- Displays suitable stop-loss and take-profit levels
- Configurable oscillator parameters
- Customizable colors and sizes

- It implements performance statistics
- It implements email/sound/visual alerts
To offer a broad market perspective, the indicator can be loaded many times in the same chart using different oscillators, without interference. The indicator supports the following oscillators:
- Awesome Oscillator
- Accelerator Oscillator
- Williams Percent Range
- Relative Vigor Index
- Money Flow Index
- On Balance Volume
- Rate of Change
Since divergences can expand quite a bit, especially in the Forex market, this indicator implements a twist: it waits for a donchian breakout to confirm the divergence before signaling the trade. The end result is an otherwise repainting indicator with a very reliable trading signal.
