Technically, entry is entry into a trade, while
signal is what the indicator displays.
In everyday language, though, there may be
little difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Forgot to add that I've downloaded the indicator today. So I would expect it's the latest version.

Thanks

Hi there,
I have been trying to build the SwingTrendX.cs .....

Update :
Looks like I've managed to get something to work. I had to use the UpFlip (and DnFlip) property, SwingTrend seems only be available on the oscillator indicator.

Error message on NT7 for PasMA Template

I DL'd the PasMA template from June 2014 but got an error message when I tried to apply it to an ES chart. Is there a newer version for NT7? I searched Attachments in this thread and did not find one.

Thanks,

Geoff

Seeking clarification of standard swing creation logic

@dorschden
@silverter17

Hi folks,

Iím a newbie to futures.io (formerly BMT)F and have just spent four hours reading through all 116 pages of this thread. Iím a bit of a fish out of water here since Iíve been working on the MultiCharts platform for seven years. I do also own NinjaTrader, but Iím not a C# coder and in the past have struggled following C# source.

Iím looking for clarification of the PAS swing creation logic so that I can code basic PAS functionality for MultiCharts. At this point I do not need the full (amazing!) array of additional features and functions that dorschden and others have authored.

There were a number of comments that discussed the logic for creating a new swing point where Swing Type= Standard and Swing Size=N. From what Iíve been able to glean, a new swing low point will be created when N number of bars have been printed having highs lower than the prior swing highís high. Is this correct? Are there exceptions or other rules? For example: if the Swing Size=5 and five bars in a row print with their high 1 tick below the prior barís high would a new swing low still be printed? Or am I misunderstanding?

I really appreciate any additional clarifications. Many thanks

PDQ

PDQ, I'm not @dorschden or @Silvester17, but here's a simple way to get it. If the Swing Size is, say, 7 (the default), it looks back at the previous 7 bars. If the current bar is above/below the high/low of that range, it is a new high/low point. That's it.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here's a quick way to see it.

The chart below has PAS with a 7 bar size and a Donchian Channel with a 7 bar period -- that is, the Donchian draws in the 7 bar range of highs and lows for easy visibility, and the PAS high/low swing dots shift when the previous 7-bar range is exceeded up or down. You can count the bars to be sure this is what is happening.

For instance, there is a swing low at 2080 on the chart. Each of the two bars just before it were lows of their previous 7-bar range of lows (and each had a dot showing it as a low), but it was the last to break the 7-bar range before price turned up, so it stayed the swing low. Then a new high point was reached, and the highs kept advancing until 2085.25, when the previous 7-bar range was no longer broken on the upside.... and so on.

That's all there is to it. It's a matter of exceeding or not exceeding a range. Works very well, too.

Anyone know why or how to fix the labeling so it gets every swing? Not sure why it doesn't label each one...
