Simple harmonic oscillator - indicator for MetaTrader 5


Theory :

The indicator is based on Akram El Sherbinis article "Time Cycle Oscillators" published in IFTA journal 2018.

The SHO is a bounded oscillator for the simple harmonic index that calculates the period of the market’s cycle. The oscillator is used for short and intermediate terms and moves within a range of -100 to 100 percent. The SHO has overbought and oversold levels at +40 and -40, respectively. At extreme periods, the oscillator may reach the levels of +60 and -60. The zero level demonstrates an equilibrium between the periods of bulls and bears. The SHO oscillates between +40 and -40. The crossover at those levels creates buy and sell signals. In an uptrend, the SHO fluctuates between 0 and +40 where the bulls are controlling the market. On the contrary, the SHO fluctuates between 0 and -40 during downtrends where the bears control the market. Reaching the extreme level -60 in an uptrend is a sign of weakness. Mostly, the oscillator will retrace from its centerline rather than the upper boundary +40. On the other hand, reaching +60 in a downtrend is a sign of strength and the oscillator will not be able to reach its lower boundary -40.

Usage :

Centerline Crossover Tactic
This tactic is tested during uptrends. The buy signals are generated when the WPO/SHI cross their centerlines to the upside. The sell signals are generated when the WPO/SHI cross down their centerlines. To define the uptrend in the system, stocks closing above their 50-day EMA are considered while the ADX is above 18.
Uptrend Tactic
During uptrends, the bulls control the markets, and the oscillators will move above their centerline with an increase in the period of cycles. The lower boundaries and equilibrium line crossovers generate buy signals, while crossing the upper boundaries will generate sell signals. The “Re-entry” and “Exit at weakness” tactics are combined with the uptrend tactic. Consequently, we will have three buy signals and two sell signals.
Sideways Tactic
During sideways, the oscillators fluctuate between their upper and lower boundaries. Crossing the lower boundary to the upside will generate a buy signal. On the other hand, crossing the upper boundary to the downside will generate a sell signal. When the bears take control, the oscillators will cross down the lower boundaries, triggering exit signals. Therefore, this tactic will consist of one buy signal and two sell signals. The sideway tactic is defined when stocks close above their 50-day EMA and the ADX is below 18
