Amibroker MTF Indicator

I think that Tomasz Janeczko is a genius!


Multiple time-frame indicators

But one feature I miss in Amibroker.
I have not found a suitable way to build an indicator using
intraday timeframes shown on an daily chart.
It is possible but the workaround solution link to multiple timeframe indicators is in my opinion not very elegant.

But this can be done better with ninjatrader or Multicharts.NET.

Still not sure what you actually mean but there is no such missing feature if you mean to plot a lower TF's indicator and higher TF price in one and the same chart sheet.

Actually you have different possibilities doing it ... either using GFX or using Timeframe functions.

See example chart showing 10-minute RSI and 60-minute Price using two options to plot it.

Question :

I'm curious to know, how do you chart a watchlist, market, industry, ... in one view meaning in one chart in other softwares?

For example you do an exploration and the exploration or backtest result list gets auto-moved to watchlist A.
Now let's say the watchlist containing the result list consists of 25 symbols, 50 symbols, etc.

In AB you could now view, scroll, zoom all of those symbols at once. If your monitor is small then you limit the number to let's say 9 symbols per scrolling page. If your monitor is large enough you could just view all symbols at once i.e. setting to 6 rows x 5 columns or 10 x 10.

Below AFL code showing 4 x 3 (customizable via parameters). Haven't found a way doing that elsewhere.

The whole chart including price and axes etc was done using GFX.

Since we are at charting here are some other pictures from another forum showing different options to plot multiple symbols at once.

Symbols in multiple chart tabs

First and this foremost thanks @greenroomhoo for setting up this thread.
Frankly speking I've quite hooked up with an idea to migrate form Multicharts as my primary research tool to some other. I've pretty much got to a point when I quite fed up with the minor issues that are still and still persisting in that software which gradually increase my frustration. Therefore, I've decided to carry on with the current testing with MC and try to learn something else in the meantime and I've put my attention on Amibroker. I see a lot of positive feedback on the web regarding the flexibility, speed and overall robustness of Amibroker. I would be very grateful with some hints & tips especially from someone migration from Multicharts to Amibroker.

Looking forward.

Tomasz

Funny that you have the same first name as the AB main developer.

Well, the question is what do you wanna do/achieve. If it is something specific then maybe it's better to start a new thread so it can be found more easily by people looking for similar issue.

@badabingbadaboom We're both with Tomasz Janeczko have in common the same name and the nationality

My question was referring rather to an overall obstacles that may occur when switching form Multicharts to Amibroker.

AmiBroker looks interesting to me. I've just purchased the professional package bundle, and will try and spend some time with it soon to see how it stacks up. My biggest interest is the portfolio level backtesting.

But my biggest concern is the handling of tick level data in backtests and optimizations, as it is extremely unclear as to whether or not this is really supported. I often test years of tick data per instrument at a time. I am not concerned about system resources, as my workstation has 32GB of ram. I am instead concerned about accuracy and simply whether or not it will work with that much data at once. I googled and read forums but was unable to find any hint of an answer, so thought I would give it a shot myself.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
