Fixed a typo in the code where BB multiplier was stuck at 1.5. Thanks @ucsgears for bringing it to my notice.

Use the updated source instead of the what TV shows below.

This is a derivative of John Carter's "TTM Squeeze" volatility indicator, as discussed in his book "Mastering the Trade" (chapter 11).

Black crosses on the midline show that the market just entered a squeeze ( Bollinger Bands are with in Keltner Channel). This signifies low volatility , market preparing itself for an explosive move (up or down). Gray crosses signify "Squeeze release".

Mr.Carter suggests waiting till the first gray after a black cross, and taking a position in the direction of the momentum (for ex., if momentum value is above zero, go long). Exit the position when the momentum changes (increase or decrease --- signified by a color change). My (limited) experience with this shows, an additional indicator like ADX / WaveTrend, is needed to not miss good entry points. Also, Mr.Carter uses simple momentum indicator , while I have used a different method (linreg based) to plot the histogram.

your settings and code show the possibility of a blue signal, but I never saw that generated no chart - what is that for and when it should show up?

WELL DONE.

Looks nice.
There is a bug on line 30 of the code when I try to copy it for Tradingview.

Very good works applying the system from Mr John Carter. However as mentioned by you, I also experienced missed good entry points and max TP points. Thanks god I get a best entry using my own system while applying this but do some adjustment (i.e. KC multipliers to 2.0) as I'm scalping and want to get in and out (FIFO) faster.
