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...
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...
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...
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.
