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.

But I want to test another way of using it, so I hope someone can help me with this question:

Is there a way that I can make a strategy with PriceActionSwing that enter short each time the indicator makes LH on the chart like I show on the picture?

Hey stibflo,

unfortunately this isn't implement. I didn't implement a public property with the swing labels (LL, HH,...). Maybe I do this in the next update. Eventual it is enough if you use the "UpFlip[0]/DnFlip[0]" property, but this doesn't tell you, whether the swing was a LH or a HH, it only tell you that the up swing is over.

This is an excellent thread. I actually have some precise rules for Gann swing charts if it could be of help. I have attached them. The key is inside bars (which are completely ignored in every circumstance) and outside bars (which are very important but can get complex).

I also have an entire swing trading system based on his charts that used to be very profitable (I haven't looked at it in a while) & could probably be automated as it is 100% mechanical. It was traded on daily charts but could possibly work in any timeframe.

At least I think it was mechanical anyway. Will dig it out.

Alex, I downloaded your indicator & ran it, it is pretty close. The only thing it doesn't handle correctly are outside bars, which it seems to ignore. You could certainly work from it though. (I see you're in Sydney as well). If the outside bars could be tidied up as per the rules then I think you could develop a decent system from it.

Hey anniebee321,

I'm not at home in the moment (vacation for one more week) and have no NT on this notebook, so I can't answer any questions. But I think you can change this setting in the "Visualize pattern" category with the text or label offset property.

All other questions I'll answer in one or two weeks when I'm back at home.

dorschden,

I just wanted to say thank you for a great indicator, and for a wonderful job with an indicator that's unique, and that you could have made money on selling it or leasing it. Instead you've shared it with a lot of people for free.

I wish the markets rewards you big time, every time you ride on it's wings!

Thank you!

We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!
Get rid of your past and let the future unfold from the now.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.
/George
