Welcome to futures.io.

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.

I would like to draw a line which could extend (beyond the Current Bar) and until a certain condition(s) exist. How do I go about doing that?

You can use a Ray if it's at a specific angle, otherwise you have to override the Plot method and do it manually (advanced).


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.

Draw Line until condition changes

Big Mike,

I am struggling with how to code this? To keep it simple, as an example, I would like to draw a horizontal line once prices closes above a 14 EMA... and to draw that line at the close of the bar.... and continue the line until price crosses below the 14 EMA... and again draw the line at the close and continue until reverses.

any help you have, or other indicator that has this included, I could open and see,,,, would greatly appreciate, thanks.

Futures Edge on FIO
Algorithmically, you'd draw a new line on bar update if your boolean "aboveSMA" is true. Update aboveSMA if close is below the SMA. Unfortunately, I don't think you can draw new objects more than 16 bars ago, so you might have to draw dots.
