The average true range (ATR) plays an important role in 'Supertrend' as the indicator uses ATR to calculate its value. The ATR indicator signals the degree of price volatility. In this version you can change the ATR calculation method from the settings. Default method is RMA, when the alternative method is SMA.
The indicator is easy to use and gives an accurate reading about an ongoing trend. It is constructed with two parameters, namely period and multiplier.
The implementation of 4 supertrends and cloud fills allows for a better overall picture of the higher and lower timeframe trend one is trading a particular security in.
The default values used while constructing a supertrend indicator is 10 for average true range or trading period.
The key aspect what differentiates this indicator is the Multiplier. The multiplier is based on how much bigger of a range you want to capture. In our case by default, it starts with 2.636 and 3.336 for Set 1 & Set 2 respectively giving a narrow band range or Short Term (ST) timeframe visual. On the other hand, the multipliers for Set 3 & Set 4 goes up to 9.736 and 8.536 for the multiplier respectively giving a large band range or Long Term (LT) timeframe visual.
A ‘Supertrend’ indicator can be used on equities, futures or forex, or even crypto markets and also on minutes, hourly, daily, and weekly charts as well, but generally, it fails in a sideways-moving market. That's why with this implementation it enables one to stay out of the market if they choose to do so when the market is ranging.
This Supertrend indicator is modelled around trends and areas of interest versus buy and sell signals. Therefore, to better understand this indicator, one must calibrate it to one's need first, which means day trader (shorter timeframe) vs swing trader (longer time frame), and then understand how it can be utilized to improve your entries, exits, risk and position sizing.
In this chart shown above using SPX500:OANDA, 15R Time Frame, we can see that there is at any give time 1 to 4 clouds/bands of Supertrends. These four are called Set 1, Set 2, Set 3 and Set 4 in the indicator. Set's 1 & 2 are considered short term, whereas Set's 3 & 4 are considered long term. The term short and long are subjective based on one's trading style. For instance, if a person is a 1min chart trader, which would be short term, to get an idea of the trend you would have to look at a longer time frame like a 5min for instance. Similarly, in this cases the timeframes = Multiplier value that you set.
+ Apply some basic EMA/SMA indicator script of your choice for easier understanding of the trend or to allow smooth transition to using this indicator.
+ Split the chart into two vertical layouts and applying this same script coupled with xdecow's 2 WWV candle painting script on both the layouts. Now you can use the left side of the chart to show all bearish move candles only (make the bullish candles transparent) and do the opposite for the right side of the chart. This way you enhance focus to just stick to one side at a given time.
