Hello, I would like to try all of these indicators (of ucsgears) in my Multicharts...I see that the code must be changed to make it work in MC! how should I do? There are somewhere in the precise codes to be copied and compiled? (sorry my english) thanks

good early signals.

Cool! Any idea on how it performs on currencies and within the day trading - shorter than daily term trades?

May be you can back test on currency pair and post suggestions to improve. Play around with the settings, So far, I have only tested it briefly on stocks, with the same settings, haven't found any other better settings yet.

Ok, ill see if i can use it
Mathematically it should work. We are trying to pick the turning point in Swings, by looking for raw indicator and smooth version of the same. SMI vs ROC combination is one. Fast and Full Stochastic is another one, Smooth CCI vs Raw CCI will potentially be another one. They all measure the same (ignore the scales, ie., They Swing around Zero or the Median Line).

Great job
Hey can't find the indicator anymore? Only the "overlay" version which is nothing like the original.... :(
I think its fake to be honest I also have the same issue @HellC,

@Sauljoffe, The only way I can get it to work is by copy/pasting the code into my script box...
