GoNoGo Trend Pro

Author: Optuma Team Last updated: Apr 6, 2023 10:45


Expanding on the existing GoNoGo Trend indicator, this tool adds additional Icons.

GoNoGo Charts highlight low-risk opportunities for trend participation and alert investors to short-term countertrend corrections with intuitive icons directly in the price action.

The resurgence of momentum in the direction of the trend is an excellent entry opportunity, or the chance to scale up positions. GoNoGo Icons illuminate these events on the chart with green or red solid circles.

When GoNoGo Trend is painting blue bars, a green solid circle will appear above price each time GoNoGo Oscillator finds support at zero.

When GoNoGo Trend is painting purple bars, a red solid circle will appear each time GoNoGo Oscillator hits resistance at the zero-line from below. Contrarily, within a “Go” trend, a security’s momentum may reach overbought levels, then fall back toward the zero-line.

While in a “NoGo” trend, a security’s momentum may fall to extreme oversold levels, and then cool. As the momentum calculations retreat from extreme overbought or oversold levels, GoNoGo Icons highlight the possible countertrend correction in price.


To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the GoNoGo tool group, and left-click on the chart to add the tool. Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings. You will see the bars change colour, as well as the addition of Go and NoGo labels and Icons.

Scripting: GNGTRENDPRO()

There are lots of outputs for the Trend Pro indicator: one for each colour (Blue, Aqua, Orange, Fucsia, and Purple) and one for each icon (Red Circle, Red Arrow, Green Circle, Green Arrow).

The following will display a value in a watchlist corresponding to the colour, ie Blue=1, Aqua=2, etc).

V2 = V1.Blue ;
V3 = V1.Aqua;
V4 = V1.Orange;
V5 = V1.Fucsia;
V6 = V1.Purple;

IF(V2 == 1,1,0) + IF(V3 == 1,2,0) + IF(V4 == 1,3,0) + IF(V5 == 1,4,0) + IF(V6 == 1,5,0)

The columns can then be formatted under Custom Labels to display the colours and label depending on the value. Clients with the tools enabled can click the links below to save and open the example workbooks with a formatted watchlist sorted by new GoNoGo signals on the current data:
