Squeeze Momentum Indicator [LazyBear] vHMA

This is a remake of the famous LazyBear Indicator, the Squeeze Momentum Indicator .
All i did was take out the SMA's and replace them with HMA's. HMA is a more responsive moving average.
Hull Moving Average .


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.

Hey, great work. My question is, what are the blue dots? There are black ones for squeeze and grey ones for release, but what are the blue ones indicating?

Why do you use sma again when plotting?
See:

val = linreg(source - avg(avg(highest(high, lengthKC), lowest(low, lengthKC)), sma(close, lengthKC)), lengthKC, 0)
plot(val, color=bcolor, style=plot.style_histogram, linewidth=4)
