Category: Indicator > Swing Identificator

Description:

This technical analysis indicator is a combination of several ideologies at work. Perhaps best know as the Ken Robert's 1-2-3 top or bottom, this chart pattern is no more than a simplified Elliot wave move.

Usage:

I do not recommend trading on this pattern alone, but in conjunction with the other trading techniques covered in this section, it is worth having a basic understanding of what a 1-2-3 formation represents.




Inputs:

LPrice - low price
HPrice - high price
Strength - specifies required number of bars on either side of the swing bar
Length - number of bars to use in calculation
Limiter - limit
Offset3 - offset

EasyLanguage Code:
INPUT:LPRICE(L),HPRICE(H),STRENGTH(1),LENGTH(50),LIMITER(10),OFFSET3(.5);


VALUE1 = SWINGLOW(2,LPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);
VALUE2 = SWINGLOW(1,LPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);
VALUE3 = SWINGHIGH(1,HPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);
VALUE11 = SWINGLOWBAR(2,LPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);
VALUE12 = SWINGLOWBAR(1,LPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);
VALUE13 = SWINGHIGHBAR(1,HPRICE,STRENGTH,LENGTH);

IF VALUE1 <
VALUE2 AND
VALUE2 <
VALUE3 AND
VALUE13 >
VALUE12 + LIMITER AND
VALUE11 >
VALUE13 + LIMITER THEN BEGIN
PLOT1[VALUE11](VALUE1,"1");
PLOT2[VALUE13](VALUE3,"2");
PLOT3[VALUE12](VALUE2 - OFFSET3,"3");
END;
