Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Is possible to call any available standard indicators and use their values in PLUGIN indicator?
Calling ZIGZAG indicator using “create technical indicator” function to identify previous few pivot values.

The Investor/RT SDK can call and examine one or more array results of any built-in technical indicators supported by the end user's underlying edition of Investor/RT. Some indicators are available only in Professional editions; some are available only in Market Profile enabled editions of Investor/RT. Within the plugin code, the irt_plugin_create_techind() function is called with a preferences string to setup the built-in indicator to be calculated. These preferences strings can be easily obtained by setting up the indicator in question within an Investor/RT chart, exporting the chart definition (text file) and then using copy/paste insert the preferences string into the plugin source code. More on this is included in the documention that accompanies the Investor/RT SDK.
