Define user variables to hold key levels generated by Market Profile

I'd like to ask Chad or anyone else what is the link that explains how to define user variables to hold key levels generated by Market Profile like VAH/VAl/POC etc.

Also, i know it's behond the scope of this presentation but i'd like to know if it's possible to record into a user variable the last swing High and Low (structure pivot high/low 3 or 5 bars user-definable) for any specific time frame.

TIYF,

Go to charthub and search for "Swing High Low". I created a chart for you. I used the Signal Statistics Indicator to grab the price of the last swing high and low in a custom indicator. You can import the chart and see how I did it. I've also setup the custom indicator to store the last swing high price in V#15 and last swing low into V#16 but you can change both those in the custom indicator preferences. You'll need to change the fractal settings in the signals "SwingHi" and "SwingLo" if you want to use a period other than the 5 I've used.

The other video you're looking for is titled "Exporting Price Levels". Search our video library page for that text and you'll find it. I would also recommend watching the video titled "User Variables" if you haven't already.

Hope that helps.

Chad

Thank you sir,

Was wondering what does the TIYF acronym mean at the end of this title : Swing High Low TIYF

I found out this definition 'titties in yo face' in an urban dictionary but i suspect it means something else

BTW, i am impressed by the flexibility of your software.

P.S. links found: http://www.linnsoft.com/charts/KeyPrices.html and this one http://www.linnsoft.com/videos/tpo_lines_flash/index.html

Moderator Note

I've moved this discussion about user variables to its own thread.



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.
