DavesBetterTick 5 *
Version 1.2 - See Changelog below

What it does: This is an overlay indicator that takes the Logarithm of the TICK, TICKQ and TICKDJ, applying a weight and then taking the average of the 3 to plot a single line. The range is determined by the weight you choose to give each tick index. See the discussion thread for ideas on best weights, expiramenting is highly encouranged,

Setup: The data source and its usefulness depends on the chart time frame you choose. While it was designed for Second based charts, others have discovered its usefull on tick based charts.

You can make this its own indepentent chart by setting the data series to Transparent and no-AutoScale. Then the TICKlog plot will have full use of the chart. You can also set it as a panel.

You may refer to this thread for a pre-made template that sets up how I use the indicator, but you should adapt to your own needs and see if it gives the trade results you are looking for.

How to read it: When the TICKlog plot makes a parabolic rise up or down, get into a trade in any of the 4 index futures in the direction of the plot, or wait for a cross of the zeroline. depending on your aggressiveness.

Its best when a swing goes up/down hard and then trades within a range of its new comfort zone. The longer it remains there, the stronger the trend in the futures makets becomes.

If a tick swing goes hard but only remains 1 or 2 periods, and then reverses, you will see smaller intra-bar swings (good for easy scalps), but also an indication of market chop.

You must subscribe to NYSE and NASDAQ index data in order to take full advantage of this indicator! Check with your data feed provider.

Your feedback in the discussion thread is very important, the more you contribute to help us find what works and what doesnt, the more the indicator can benefit the BMT community.

  • Added the ability to change Indicators and set their respective weights.
- Version 1.2 - 10/29/14
  • Removed the beta code that somehow got added between v1.1's completion and its export for the forums... This one works, really!
