ProAM Orders for NT8 - broke in 5 *
Being able to see large orders on the chart helps me enormously and can also be used to give bias.

My indicator looks for three types of events:
Large individual buys or sells (Pro orders)
Large groups of orders at any price (Block orders)
Bars with a high proportion of low size orders (Amateur orders)

In order to create a threshold above which to print the markers I use some stats functions from the Math.NET library so if you want to use my indicator you will need to add the DLL and a reference to it of course. I'm not a stats guy so I guessed at a mix of standard deviations and percentile for the thresholds and I've left these internal to the code. Different instruments respond very differently to these settings. Personally I just looked for settings that didn't flood the screen with markers yet gave enough to be of use - very subjective.

[For minute bar users (I use BetterRenko) this does NOT print the markers at the actual price level - it prints in the middle of the bar (OnBarClose) - not something relevant to me so I probably wouldn't be that keen to change it.]

[Apologies to the expert coders here - I have used the Draw function for these markers - in most of my other stuff I use plots, but I just couldn't get a good look with the standard plots.]

My own experience is I couldn't make any sense of the Amateur orders and so I switch them off. The Pro orders really work for me and I add in the Block orders for good measure.

I use these in various ways which I intend to expand on, but generally use them to establish levels that the pros are working at. Bottom line - when you see a load of these markers together - something is brewing!

Oh and I have exposed series for both Pro bars (0, 1, 2, 3 [+/-] for various types) and an overall bias (+1/-1) which is based either off the sign of the order or the price movement - for me I use the price movement e.g. a large sell that causes price to go up is often a better clue than a buy that does the same.

Have fun.


Note: You will need MathNet.Numerics DLL and Delta Package V3 by Sim22 (thanks to him) :

P.S. I'm not aware of how version numbering works - an expert might want to let me know. Call this Version 1.
