I had searched for a proper indicator to recognize important impulses, so I just need to take a look at the indicator to quickly find them on the chart. Alexander Elder's Force is the answer, although I made a few changes to the design.
First, I found more accuracy using Hull Moving Average. It steers faster making sudden spikes even more visible. Second, it is...
This indicator bundle, combined with PRIME-QUARTERS, provides a trader with everything needed, on chart, to make swing and scalper entries. The short candle SMA are used to execute immediate entries, while the larger candle tf indicate Continuation, trend changes and swing points. The color coded impulse indicator used both RSI and TSI variables to determine...
Consolidation Range Analysis

█ Indicator Summary
This tool calculates, analyzes and plots the visualization of a relative range over a given period of time
By adding to charts, users are enabled to see the impulsive nature of market cycles, along with their efforts to consolidate thereafter
This script uses Heikin Ashi candles to smooth out the candles, then counts how many consecutive candles in a row are the same colour (red or green). It then takes each count and multiples it by the difference between close and open, to provide a weighted movement.
Where larger moves create greater impulses.
This is a very simple script which simply plots an ATR (the built-in ATR function, using RMA) and plots a cross when the previously closed bar is larger than the ATR by a given threshold. There are also alert conditions set so you can be alerted when these impulse bars show up, either up or down bars. Have fun and safe trading!
I've always been intrigued by the Elder Impulse System but found it labour intensive with its flipping back and forth between daily and weekly charts. I also wasn't fond of the way it repainted the candlesticks. So I set out to build a version where you could get every trade signal filtered down in one chart and still see the real price action.
This indicator was based on the Elders Impulse System by astraloverflow.
The only difference is that I included the weekly EMA26 as a filter and you can plot it on the graph if you want (unchecking the Weekly EMA26 won't turn the filter off, will only stop plotting it).
The indicator works this way:
When the MACD Histogram is growing UP, the EMA13 is pointing...
This script uses a combination of modified TSI and RSI conditions produce Buy/Sell/Hold signals. Similar to Elder's Impulse, when a buy signal is met, bars turn blue. When a sell signal is met, bars turn Pink. When signals are mixed, bars turn grey. Depending on direction of trend, gray bars can be considered "Hold" or take profit signals. You can change the...
The "Range Force Impulse" indicator combines 4 useful indicators into one, freeing up chart real-estate and giving the trader insight into trend health, bull/bear commitment, range and volatility all at a glance.
The indicator consists of the following:
Direction - True Range and Average True Range columns shown above and below 0 depending on direction of...
Thanks to rasantos for the idea for this strategy.
The 2 lines are based on the sum number of impulses for x bars back. So total "up impulses" is the sum of the bars where price closed higher, and vice versa for "down impulses". The strategy is simple - a long signal is generated when the total up impulses exceeds the total down impulses. A short signal is...
This version of impulse uses the double exponential moving average instead of the typical ema.
The impulse system :
The Impulse System combines two simple but powerful indicators.
One measures market inertia, the other its momentum. When both
point in the same direction, they identify an impulse worth following.
We get an entry signal when both indicators get in...
The purpose of Impulse Release is to prevent trading in the wrong direction. While the Impulse System operates in a single timeframe, Impulse Release is based on two timeframes. It tracks both the longer and the shorter timeframes to find when the Impulse points in the same direction on both.
Its color bar flashes several signals:
If one timeframe is in a buy...
Lines "Total Up Impulses" and "Total Down Impulses" are the sum of impulses in the last n periods (Length).
line 1 => "Total Up Impulses": the sum of up impulses.
line 2 => "Total Down Impulses": the sum of down impulses.
When line 1 crosses up line 2, it indicates an uptrend is comming out.
When line 1 crosses down line 2, it indicates a downtrend is comming out.
