Program 61 | Smoothed Markplex CCI and volume indicator

Markplex smoothed CCI and volume histogram

Program 61 consists of an indicator and the protected smoothed CCI function. The indicator plots the Markplex smoothed CCI, the Markplex fast smoothed CCI and a histogram of the Markplex smoothed CCI that is colored based on the bar volume compared to the volume of a user input number of bars. This allows the user to get an idea of whether the current bar is relatively high volume bar compared to the bars before. I explain this more in the video.

The program 61 packages includes:

  • An indicator (_Program 61) that calls the protected _MarkplexCCI function and plots the lines described above.
  • A protected function (_MarkplexCCI) that calculates the Markplex smoothed CCI and the Markplex fast smoothed CCI.

The programs work with both TradeStation and MultiCharts. An ELD file containing both programs may be downloaded for $44.95.
