Another request - similar to the custom linear regression indicators would it be possible to get custom Bollinger bands for user-defined variables? While this can be done using multiple lines of code, it would be much easier if it could be coded into an indicator.

Example -

set{ratio, ind(IWM,close) / ind(SPY,close)}

now I want to look at the currently offered Bollinger Band Indicators for this - maybe something like

CUBB(ratio, days, #sd) - Custom Upper Bollinger Band
CLBB(ratio, days, #sd) - Custom Lower Bollinger Band
CBBOsc(ratio, days, #sd) - Custom Bollinger Band Oscillator
CBBWidth(ratio, days, #sd) - Custom Bollinger Band width

where ratio can be any previously defined user variable.

Please let me know if this can be added.

Kevin

Or maybe just modify the existing BB code to accept inputs other than the default close?

Now it would be

draw Bollinger Bands(close, 20, 2) for normal plot on price
or
draw Bollinger Bands(ratio, 20,2) on plot ratio
or
ratio above Upper Bollinger Band(ratio, 20,2)

That would be very helpful in filter development.

We apologize for not getting back to you sooner on this.

It should not be a problem adding the custom Bollinger Band functions you mention. We will be looking into this early next week and will post any updates here.

Thank you,

also maybe look into the color picker on charts if one wants to draw a trend line for resistance in one color and support in another.

We have added the 4 new custom measures mentioned. Below are a few examples:

Custom Upper Bollinger Band (CUBB)

Fetcher[set{myvar,RSI(10)}
close is above 10
and RSI(10) crossed above CUBB(RSI(10),10,2.0)
]



Custom Lower Bollinger Band (CLBB)

Fetcher[close is above 10
and CCI(10) crossed below CLBB(CCI(10),15,1.0)
]



Custom Bollinger Band Oscillator(CBBOsc)

Fetcher[close is above 10
and draw CBBOsc(EMA(50),10,2.0)
]



Custom Bollinger Band Width(CBBWidth)

Fetcher[close is above 10
and CBBWidth(RSI(10),20,2.0) reached a new 1 month high
]
