SMI2 Indicator

I am using the SMI2 indicator (from this forum) with ES, and I get the arrows on price panel, when SMI2 lines corss. However, when I load up the 6E, the arrows disapear from the price panel.

I would appreciate any comments on how to fix this problem.

Thanks,
-Keep

Keep,

Here's a v01 with a modified offset to use TickSize for the offset of the arrows.

I tested on 6E and it shows the arrows. Also added an outline color for the paintbars. Not sure of any other functions that may need addressed.

HTH,

Kirk

Keep,

I tested the 6e with my SMI4 and SMI5 (modified / enhanced versions of SMI2 and Cory Ng's modified SMI_MultiColor) that has the offset for the arrows, but to get them to appear, i had to change the offset from "1" to "0.0005". If that's of any help.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Thanks Wizard for the heads up.

I also tried Zeller's modified version that he has kindly attached above and is working beautifully.

Thank you both.

Hi Wizerd,
Thanks for the SMI4. I see that you have SMI5, is it possible to test it out ? Keep up the good work and do not be discouraged regarding the unscrupulous people out there (emini tick Factory). I have been in the software busniess for over 40 years, and have seen this over and over again. From experience it is really only a handful of these low class pleople that stoop to low ebbs, and not the main stream. A small suggestion is to confront them with the facts, and also adverstise these facts with their name on all possible forums. Keep up the good work.

Perry,

I was planning on posting it to the forum this weekend. Wanted to test some more, to make sure the "repainting" thing was resolved & it was working correctly. PM me if you want it right away. The only basic difference between SMI4 and SMI5 is - SMI4 changed the background to red if the SMIEMA crossed below the '0' line and blue if it crossed above the '0' line. SMI5 paints background a little differently - based on the histogram bars. If histogram bars are red, background is red & if blue, background is blue - gets you into the move a little earilier.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Wizard,
There is no hurry. When you are ready it will be fine with me. I have been noticing that in certain instances the DOTS are not evenly seperated during certain moves. Can you explain what this actually means. There is the same type of movement with ParabolicSAR dots.

Perry, Here's how I interpret what the indicator is telling me:

When the dots are widely separated, there's lots of momentum going on. When they start 'scrunching' up together, the strength of the movement is declining & may be a signal that price is about to reverse, if even for a retracement. The dots represent price bars. Blue - buyers are in control of that price bar move. Red, sellers are in control. Dots above the SMIEMA - upward trend (move) in effect. Dots below the SMIEMA - downward trend (move) in effect. I use the terms 'trend', 'move' , 'retracement' interchangeably, since it's all relative to the time frame you're looking at. What may seem a trend on a smaller time-frame chart can be seen as a retracement on a larger time-frame chart, etc. etc. That's how I use it, anyhow. Hope that helps.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!
