I am a big fan of Constance Brown. Her book "Technical Analysis for Trading Professionals" is an absolute classic (get the 2nd edition).
I have included here 2 of the indicators she uses in all her charts.
This is a formula Ms Brown developed (Cardwell may not agree!) to identify divergence failures with...
Indicator developed by Brazilian and analyst Odir Aguiar (Didi), consists of "Moving Averages", known for the famous needles Didi, which allows the visualization of reversal points.
The concept is very simple, when you insert 3 Moving Averages on display, one of three periods, an 8 and the other 20, there appears the formation of the indicator which works on an...

A modified DMI, This turns the standard DMI into an Oscillator. The DMI cross signal is the same, but as an OSC you get the added benefits or finding divergences, etc. The added WIlder's Average Line (blue) can help you see if a short term trend is getting less interesting.
McClellan Summation Index is a breadth indicator derived from McClellan Oscillator ().
The Summation Index is simply a running total of the McClellan Oscillator values. Even though it is called a Summation Index, the indicator is really an oscillator that fluctuates above/below zero. As such, signals can be derived from...
The Relative Momentum Index (RMI) was developed by Roger Altman. Impressed
with the Relative Strength Index's sensitivity to the number of look-back
periods, yet frustrated with it's inconsistent oscillation between defined
overbought and oversold levels, Mr. Altman added a momentum component to the RSI.
As mentioned, the RMI is a variation...
This indicator plots Dynamic Momentum Index indicator. The Dynamic Momentum
Index (DMI) was developed by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll. The indicator
is covered in detail in their book The New Technical Trader.
The DMI is identical to Welles Wilder`s Relative Strength Index except the
number of periods is variable rather than fixed. The...
The Range Expansion Index ( REI ) oscillator is based on Tom Demark's studies and described in "DeMark on Day Trading Options" book.
Range Expansion Index is an oscillator which compares current intraday highs and lows with the high and low of two bars ago.
The indicator oscillates between +100 and - 100, Default overbought and oversold conditions are 45/-45...
This will show you the RSI of the higher timeframes (up to 1D). Current Timeframe is colored red, higher timeframes are colored from light gray to darker gray (you can change that).
There are several ways to enter a trade:
1. look for rising RSI on higher timeframe (line is stepping up in indicator window), wait for current RSI to decline to oversold (with...
A simple modification of the built-in "Average Directional Index":
To identify wether there is an uptrend or a downtrend, the function color is conditional:
no trend: black
small uptrend (weak threshold): light green
big uptrend (strong threshold): green
small downtrend (weak threshold): light red
big downtrend (strong threshold): red
Accumulation Swing Index
ASI is a cumulative sum of swing index, developed by Wilder. ASI attemps to show the "real market" by quantifying price. This allows the use of classic support/resistance analysis on the index itself. Typical analysis involves looking for breakouts, new highs and lows, and...
This indicator was originally developed by Paul L. Dysart in the 1930s and then described and popularized by Norman G. Fosback in his book "Stock Market Logic: A Sophisticated Approach to Profits on Wall Street"
Like and follow for more cool indicators!
I am calling it a SNAP BACK indicator.
Utilizing the TVI (Transactional Value Index - Link below for indicator / setups)
You can pretty much guess when any instrument could slow down, last stand in a pullback and the last few candles before losing its strong trend.
It varies per person, a short term trader can use this, Long term traders can hedge with...
a quick and simple tampering with the SKEW Index (also known as the "Black Swan Index")
Personally, I find it quite difficult to use the SKEW Index as a reliable indicator. Nevertheless I implemented a ranking system (from 0 to 100) with the option to include a certain time period (default: 252 trading days (units)) and a moving average (default: 21 days...
The Market Facilitation Index is an indicator that relates price range to
volume and measures the efficency of price movement. Use the indicator to
determine if the market is trending. If the Market Facilitation Index increased,
then the market is facilitating trade and is more efficient, implying that the
market is trending. If the Market...
RSI Donchian Channels
Built by Ricardo and JR
Here is a great indicator to use for strong trends. Donchian Channels react immediately to changes in the highest high and lowest low. For strong trends you want to trade when RSI is set along the upper or lower DC-RSI envelope. When the RSI releases from the DC-RSI envelope, you can take the trade off....
Relative Vigor Index with Dominant Cycle Detection. As Ehler's mentioned, fixed length look back is inherently flawed when it is possible to extract a length from a dominant price cycle. may be less effective if signal to noise ratio is greater than 2, but that usually would not happen at >5m candles, and honestly shouldn't be looking at RV(igor)I when price is...
