BBImpulse Indicator

BBImpulse is part of the latest indicators package offered by John Bollinger . Excerpt from their market blurb (

"BBImpulse is derived from %b. Its value is the periodic change of %b, so if %b was 0.45 this period and 0.20 last period the present value of BBImpulse is 0.25. We present two reference levels on the chart, an alert level and an impulse level."

"Generally the market moves in the direction of the latest alerts and/or impulses except towards the end of a move where one can take advantage of exhaustion/reversal signals from this indicator."

"Ian Woodward employs BBImpulse for his Kahuna signals using key levels of 0.24 and 0. 40 ."

I added support for the following:
- Highlighting alert/impulse trigger bars
- Rendering the range (check options page).

I noticed that the range, by itself, highlights lot of info:
- Tapering in (narrowing) of range may signify topping or falling prices.
- Tapering out (expanding) may signify nearing a bottom or rising prices.
- Range getting "ranged" between alert or impulse levels signify a major move in the direction of the last impulse trigger. I think for this, alert level ranging intensity is greater than impulse level ranging intensity.

Someone more familiar with BB will have more observations, I am sure. Please do share here so we BB noobs can learn :)

Awesome! Thanks! I just read that he developed new indicators here:

BBImpulse is explained there as: "How is the price changing in relation to the Bollinger Bands"

A video with Mr. Bollinger. He explains his new BBImpulse indicator in this video starting around minute 54:50

Thanks for your indicators. They are incredible (or incredibly inspired!). Not only have you allowed lots of users a new way to look at the market(s) (thats frankly not available in most places) you have also made a wide contribution to the use of old and new techniques in interesting combinations.

I do have one small request. Is there any chance you could make a very simple indicator for charts that displays the fees associated with trading? (Both buying and selling)

I am not sure if an offset or some other indication would be best in different kinds of charts.

Thank you Lazybear for this, question: Can you set an Alarm for when there is a Big Impulse, an audible alarm?
