Not bad being the last to enter and taking second (third if you count bobc635 winning first and second).

Hi @SodyTexas, congrats and thanks for uploading.

Could you please say something how you use the indicator? Is that how MACD is used in general, or do have some tips and tricks? And are you using it in all time frames?

Thanks
Deetee

Not bad being the last to enter and taking second (third if you count bobc635 winning first and second). No less I made the mistake and entered a DLL version of the indicator.

Congratulations @bobc635!

I will upload the non-DLL version on Tuesday, not sure how I made that mistake. Traveling at the moment with no access to the PC the code is on.

Please donate anything I won to a Charity of your choosing.

Cheers,
Sody

@SodyTexas please correct this indicator:



It's a DLL, which is not allowed.

Please edit the upload after re-exporting as a non-DLL, and post here to let me know so I can update everyone.

Mike

This entry has been updated to include the open source code (not DLL). Thank you @SodyTexas!

Thank you @SodyTexas. As per your request and generosity, I am donating your $100 to a charity of my choosing. I have seen in the news today how terrible COVID is in India right now, it is overwhelming them (the second wave) with 300,000 cases daily. They had it under control in first wave with daily cases just 10-15k, but the second wave has caught them hard.

So, I searched and found Give2Asia's specific response for India:

You can follow the standard rules with MACD, with one key difference. Use shorter periods, the real power in momentum-based zero lag indicators is their ability to catch turns in small trends in a market, thus using this for a long period defeats the purpose. indicator settings I use are very very quick 3,5 and 3.

For time-frame, I use this on what I would consider being a quick chart like a 60-minute chart. While I believe charts can be fractal on longer charts, quick charts like 30 minutes or lower consist of too much noise and should not be traded. This is just a personal opinion, that not everyone agrees with. Just remember, the trend is your friend.

I usually combine this indicator with a long-term trend filter and when I am feeling frisky will add and remove extra size to a long-term trade using this indicator. Attached is one way I use this indicator. I have a custom (secret) ichimoku indicator indicating we are still on a long-term trend up, so I will only take long trades. There is two points I watch the cross and the signal line. The picture should explain it.

The first red arrow is usually a profit-taking signal, where I lighten up the trade, then the second red arrow I want to be out of the extra leg by that time.

There is a number of use case scenarios with such an indicator, so don't be afraid to adjust the settings and make them fit your style.

Cheers,
Sody

How about creating lines on the chart that show:
ETH HI/LO
RTH HI/LO
IB HI/LO
PREVIOUS DAY RTH HI/LO
RTH MID
RTH CLOSE
ETH MID
RTH OPEN
PREVIOUS WEEK HI/LO

Calculated on each tick and clearly marked with letters?
