Dear Apprentice
how does this differ/match compared to stochastic? Are there any instructions (or specific settings) for any timeframe?

Unfortunately, I can not give you a good answer.
I've got only a brief description of the indicator and its formula.

Hi Apprentice, can you get the signal for this indicator? (which, in my opinion, is underrated) Every time the bar will change color, "Buy" signal, "Neutral" signal and "Sell" signal. Also where can I find the signal for the Voltychannel_Stop? I downloaded it but it doesn't work. Thanks for everything especially for your great work. Luigi!

Hello Apprentice;

Would you add three horizontal lines on the OBOS indicator and their value:

Default values would be:

1 line at 100
1 line at -100
1 line at 0 (zero)

User should have ability to select line width, style and color.

These changes will make the indicator a bit mor usefull.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Apprentice;

Regarding my previous post on developing a strategy for this indicator:

Buy = 2 or more Oversold candles change to Buy candle
Sell = 2 or more Overbought candles change to Sell candle

This is needed to filter out a few false or uneeded trades caused when a single overbought/oversold candle appears in a trend.

Thank you!

Hello Apprentice;

My apologies for making an additional change to the buy/sell signal. After reviewing the indicator at several periods on severall time frames it became apparent that buy and sell with the overbought/oversold candles will give too many false signals.

A better approach would be to use the horizontal lines 0, 100, & -100 (or whatever the user selects as overbought/oversold) to create the buy and sell signal.

For Example:

Buy signal one could occur when Green candle crosses overbought line up.
Buy signal two could occur when Green candle crosses center line up.
Buy signal three could occur when Green candle crosses oversold line up.

Sell signal one could occur when Red candle crooses oversold line down.
Sell signal two could occur when Red candle crosses center line down.
Sell signal three could occur when Red candle crosses oversold line down.

I will follow up with a graphical view later today.

Thank you for your assitance and consideration.
