Requests for additional built-in functions

Please use this thread to request additional indicator/helper built-in functions to be added to QuantScript.

Today we’re adding WMA (Weighted Moving Average), HMA (Hull Moving Average) and IchimokuCloud.Upper, IchimokuCloud.Lower.


Hi Nikola,

I admire your work and this is really great stuff and awesome. I am not sure if you already have what I will suggest to be added so here it goes …
can we somehow have a function to detect candle patterns like for example, morning star or evening star for 3 candle patterns and some other stuff like 4 candle patterns ?
Also for patterns that involves lenght of the upper or lower wick , could we let users sets value for that, that he thinks would qualify for pattern detection e.g. hammer, user define the min length of the wick and head.
thanks in advance

Will these be added to the visual editor at some point?

Probably, but not any time soon.

Although I’ve now got it working and ready to copy/paste thanks to your incredible help, having a “bars since last true” function as standard would definitely be cool

thanks for all this great work @Nikola, PQ.

May I please request you to add “Super Trend”? this signal uses Average True Range in it’s calculation which you already have, therefore it should be easy for you to add it.

all the best,

Hi Rexlau,

I am not very sure, but isn’t it the kdj is also same with williams alligator that is already available in the visual editor?

Hi Law,

Yes, I believe they are similar but not exactly the same. I think I have completed my own KDJ but probably need more testing :sweat_smile: still a good to have an official KDJ indicator so I don’t have to doubt myself anymore :crazy_face:

Hi Rexlau,

Good to hear that you have completed already the KDJ :clap:, also you are right, its not really the same as alligator.

regards ~Law

Some of the suggestions in this thread have been implemented: 10 July 2020 Update

Thank you for adding the “since” function, it helps a lot for creating new indicators! @Nikola

Would it be possible to add the Aroon indicator?
I’ve already created the functions.

Aroon Up

function AroonUp(applyTo, period):
HighestHigh = Highest(high,period)
((period - Since(close==HighestHigh))/period)*100

Aroon Down

function AroonDown(applyTo, period):
LowestLow = Lowest(low,period)
((period - Since(close==LowestLow))/period)*100
