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.

@TMFT,

Can we have a little more from you ... for the BB to change its region color at the point of trend change (momentary, short-term and long-term trend changes) and still maintaining its previous color trend changes (see the screenshot below ... you'll note that the previous green region is maintained even when the red region forms).

@lolu

You can make the plots change like that but I don't know how to make the shading do that. @Big Mike did something similar with the futures.io (formerly BMT) Wave. Perhaps he or some of the other real programmers could show us how to do that.

The problem is we are pushing the envelope with all the graphics and finding answers is difficult.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

@TMFT

I use it to have a view of the "battle" between the Bulls and the Bears when I see an opportunity to enter a trade or when I'm already in a trade and want to decide to quit in the midst of a small loss/gain, or to continue.

Meanwhile, I've replaced it with Timmy's Prometheus (located @ the rightmost in the

@TMFT,

Yes, it requires that the datafeed is good in efficient delivery of Bid/Ask feed ... IQFeed is good at this, but you can only use IQFeed as datafeed for charting; you can't use it for Order routing/placement ... you'll need a second feed for Order routing/placement. I suppose ESignal has good datafeed for Bid/Ask structure too but I don't have any ESignal experience. As for ZenFire, my understanding is that its handling of Bid/Ask nomenclature is not efficient (you may need to confirm this from other Forum members).

Small conflict between annapiccyback & annaibrangebandsv38

@ Fat Tails

i want to use your annapiccyback indi with your annaibrangebandsv38 indi to get the effect shown below


Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


The issue i am having is that the fill color for the ib range indi wont show with the annapiccyback indicator on the chart, i have had a look at both myself & assume that this has something to do with z order but with my limited hacking abilities i have been unable to solve. If this is a quick fix i would appreciate your help or guidance. Thanks in advance.

Quoting 
Actually, the reason my Bollinger shows up on the image background is because I changed the Draw Region to FillPolygon and use Zorder .

You would need to change the DrawRegion() command to FillPolygon within the custom plot of the IB Range Bands. A few hours of work just to have a useless image as a background. Sorry, I cannot do that.
