Cyatophilum Bands Definitive Edition

Automated Strategy built for

An original Swing Trading Indicator!

A Swing Trade indicator providing backtest and alerts which can be used as a long, short or reversal strategy.

How it works

Catch Breakouts

A Smoothed Donchian Channel combined with a consolidation check will trigger an entry.
The entry is then guided by a faster channel used as a trailing stop.

How to use

The most effective way to use this indicator is on high timeframes, from 2H to 1D.
The recommended pairs are trending pairs with consolidation areas, especially cryptocurrencies.

Catch Long & Short Breakouts

The first appproach would be to catch long and short breakouts, and ride the trend using the trailing stop.
Adjust the Bands wisely to trigger entries at the right time.


Beat Buy & Hold

The second approach is to go longs only, and try to beat the Buy & Hold return.
For this, click "Go long" and use an order size of 100% equity. Then adjust the Bands, trailing stop and chart timeframe.
This indicator will calculate the real Buy & Hold return using a backtest period start date and a end date that we configure in the settings. It is then printed in the Buy & Hold Comparator.

How to backtest

You can backtest using the Strategy Tester which will give you a quick overview of the strategy results over the given period of time.
There is also a backtest panel built in the indicator that gives more detailed information such as the daily % or the Buy & Hold comparator.

The indicator is using the newest alert system:

Knowledge Base

  • When I create an alert, how do I choose between "Once per bar" and "Once per bar close" ?

  • A "Once per bar" alert will trigger on the first tick of the bar which alert condition is true. A "Once ber bar close" alert will only trigger at bar close if the alert condition is still true at bar close.

  • Use "Once per bar" for manual trading. The alert will trigger sooner but is not as strong as if we waited bar close. Profits and risks are increased.

  • Use "Once per bar close" for automated trading. Unlike "Once per bar", a "Once per bar close" alert of the same type (buy or sell) cannot trigger more than once in a row. Thus it is suited for a trading bot which send buy and sell orders to a broker. Also those alerts correspond to the backtest results given buy the backtest version given with each indicator.

  • Should I expect repainting issues with any of the Cyatophilum Indicators ?

  • I code my indicators in such a way that each candle is calculated from previous candles data only. I do not use the security function which I know is currently bugged and causes repainting issues. Alerts are hosted on TradingView servers.

  • Can I use the Cyatophilum Indicators on other markets than cryptocurrency ?

  • Yes, all of my indicators work on most of TradingView's markets. You can trade Forex, Indexes, stocks, futures and CFD. Do not hesitate to join me on my Discord Server and I will help you configure the indicators for your favorite asset.
