YinYang Bar Forecast is a prediction indicator. It predicts the movement for High, Low, Open and Close for up to 13 bars into the future. We created this Indicator as we felt the TradingView community could benefit from a bar forecast as there wasn’t any currently available.
Our YinYang Bar Forecast is something we plan on continuously working on to better improve it, but at its current state it is still very useful and decently accurate. It features many calculations to derive what it thinks the future bars will hold. Let’s discuss some of the logic behind it:
- Each bar has its High, Low, Open and Close calculated individually for highest accuracy. Within these calculations we first check which bar it is we are calculating and base our span back length that we are getting our data from based on the bar index we are generating. This helps us get a Moving Average for this bar index.
- We take this MA and we apply our Custom Volume Filter calculation on it, which is essentially us dividing the current bars volume over the average volume in the last ‘Filtered Length’ (Setting) length. We take this decimal and multiply it on our MA and smooth it out with a VWMA.
- We take the new Volume Filtered MA and apply a RSI Filter calculation on it. RSI Filter is where we take the difference between the high and low of this bar and we multiply it with an RSI calculation using our Volume Filtered MA. We take the result of that multiplication and either add or subtract it from the Volume Filtered MA based on if close > open. This makes our RSI Filtered MA.
- Next, we do an EMA Strength Calculation which is where we check if close > ema(close, ‘EMA Averaged Length’) (Setting). Based on this condition we assign a multiplier that is applied to our RSI Filtered MA. We divide by how many bars we are predicting and add a bit to each predictive bar so that the further we go into the future the stronger the strength is.
- Next we check RSI and RSI MA levels and apply multiplications based on its RSI levels and if it is greater than or less than the MA. Also it is affected by if the RSI is <= 30 and >= 70.
- Finally we check the MFI and MFI MA levels and like RSI we apply multiplications based on its MFI levels and if it is greater than or less than the MA. It is also affected by if the MFI is <= 30 and >= 70.
Please note the way we calculate this may change in the future, this is just currently what we deemed works best for forecasting the future bars. Also note this script uses MA calculations out of scope for efficiency but there is potential for inconsistencies.
Innately it’s main use is the projection it provides. It only draws the bars for realtime bars and not historical ones, so the best way to backtest it is with TradingView’s Replay Tool.
Well, enough of the logic behind it, let's get to understanding how to use it:
So unfortunately we aren’t able to plot legit bars/candles into the future so we’ve had to do a bit of a work around using lines and fills. As you can see here we have 4 Lines and 3 Zones:
- Green: Represents the High
- Orange: Represents the Open
- Teal: Represents the Close
- Red: Represents the Low
- High Zone: This zone is from either Open or Close to the High and is ALWAYS filled with Green.
- Open/Close Zone: This zone is from the Open to the Close and is filled with either Green or Red based on if it's greater than the previous bar (real or forecasted).
- Low Zone: This zone is from either Open or Close to the Low and is ALWAYS filled with Red.
As you can see generally the Forecasted bars are generally within strong pivot locations and are a good estimation of what will likely go on. Please note, the WHOLE structure of the prediction can change based on the current bars movements and the way it affects the calculations.
Let's look 1 bar back from the current bar just so we can see what it used to Forecast:
As you can see it has changed quite a bit from the previous bar, but if you look close, we drew horizontal lines around where its projecting the next bar to be (our current realtime bar), if we go back to the live chart:
Its projections were pretty close for the high and low. Generally, right now at least, it does a much better job at predicting the high and low than it does the open and close, however we will do our best to fine tune that in future updates.
Remember, this indicator is not meant to base your trades on, but rather give you a Forecast towards the general direction of the next few bars. Somewhat like weather, the farther the bar (or day for weather), the harder it is to predict. For this reason we recommend you focusing on the first few bars as they are more accurate, but review the further ones as they may help show the trend and the way that pair will move.
We will conclude this tutorial here, hopefully this Predictive Indicator can be of some help and use to you. If you have any questions, comments, ideas or concerns please let us know.
