# Lower study divergence indicator

Has anyone created a lower study in tradovate that draws arrows or lines on the study to plot when divergences are being created? I have one for ThinkorSwim but wasn’t sure if anyone had a headstart on this in Tradovate? Would love to not have to start from scratch if possible.

Hi,
There are a few indicators, can you show an example?

I’m under assumption that the divergence code could be repurposed on most lower studies. For example. In ToS I have one that was created for MACD but I have repurposed the divergence code onto RSI and it works just as well. I just didn’t know if there was anything like this on Tradovate already? I haven’t found it. Here is a picture for example. See how It plots a line for divergence on histogram as well as macd lines. This code in TOS can be altered to work on other lower studies quite well.

If you can share the ToS code or provide a link to it, I can take a look at porting it to Tradovate.

I ended up just linking to TradingView and was able to make a code pretty fast based off a template on there. Thanks. I’d suggest that, i’ts better than TOS anyway

The trick was to take this and make it work on other things like macd, awesome osc, stochastic etc but wasn’t terrible
