Entry lines

Are the red Entrylines for sells and the green for buys?

The question is that in these two images it appears that the standard settings are reversed. The green should have been a buy and red a sell. But it appears the colors are reversed. This makes it seem like the coding may be reversed because the indicator has not been modified from the original zip file.

Can anyone check that to confirm it is reversed?

@Silvester17, Thanks for checking and confirming the code is correct.

Letting me know the postings showed failed ABC patterns and that the Historical Entry Lines should be marked false so they do not show up is very much appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

My first post here. I installed Price Action Swing on Ninja Trader 7.0 but it does not calculate the volume for the last 3 swings. I tried to play with settings but no success. Has anybody experienced the same problem?

Thank you in advance!

Beginning and End of Wave Volume

Re: PriceAcionSwingOscillator

I have my Swing size set at 12 and use a UniRenko chart of T5R10.

I am evaluating the relative Wave Volume of each swing for possible entry confirmation. If the Wave Volume is declining in successive down extensions, the down move may be weakening, and I may forgo another short, or prepare for a possible long.

For a down swing, the Wave Volume begins on the bar AFTER the initiating down reversal bar, and completes the wave by including the next up reversal bar. I would prefer the down swing wave be defined by shifting (repainting) back one bar and beginning on the initiating down reversal bar, and ending on the down bar prior to the next up reversal bar.

I have changed Settings/Trend change to both True and False without any difference in how the Wave Volume is formed.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Is this a simple code issue?

Hi redratsal,

i searched the PriceActionSwing Indicator Code using multiple keywords, but i could not find the lines you are showing in your post.
were did you insert your code to be able to print the indicator values?
thanks a lot,

Hi Gary,

Use NT output window and copy and paste into your excel data

export indicator values

hi dorschden ,
first of all, thank you a lot for this great indicator!
it is so good, that i want to analyse some data the indicator provides. unfortunately i am unable to find the place of coding that you are showing in your post to be able to insert the lines of coding to export swing data to the NT output window.
Could you please tell me were i can find the place??
thanks a lot,


dorschden View Post
@PHXtrader, this isn't possible. But you could add a "print statement" to the PAS code in the "CalcDnSwing" and "CalcUpSwing" functions and print the swing values to NinjaTraders output window and copy the lines into excel.

 
Code
private void CalcDnSwing(int bar, double low, bool updateLow)
 {
  if (!updateLow)
  {
    // Add the values you want to have in Excel in the print statement
    Print("Up swing Length: " + curHighLength + " duration: " + curHighDuration);
    ...
  }
  ...
}


@2010, yes and no. If the other indicator is plotted in the price panel I believe it'll work, but if it's an oscillator which is drawn in a sub panel only the dot plots will mark the high and low points and the rest of the PAS will not work.



@MrinalDatta, the trend data is now accessible from the PriceActionSwingOscillator. You have to add "using PriceActionSwingOscillator.Utility; " in the using region in the top of the indicator. And than you can check for the values with:
...
&& PriceActionSwingOscillator(15, 7,SwingTypes.Standard).SwingTrend[0] == 1
...



@rickr, double bottoms and tops are calculated with an ATR offset. If you set the parameter "Double bottom/top strength" = 1 you should only get identical double bottoms/tops.

Swing Retracement & Naked Swing Lines in PAS Pro


dorschden View Post
PAS will be available for NinjaTrader 8 ... the most used features will be converted.

Thanks, Dorschden, for all your work on PAS. I find Retracements and Naked Swing Lines to be very useful. I hope they will be ported over in PAS Pro for NT 8 just as you implemented them in NT 7. It is hard to improve on perfection as to these two features.

Again, thanks for creating this incredibly useful indicator.

Curtis

can someone code this idea into this indicator
it would be nice to have this indicator, display a "total Average of the last 10 swings" that has occurred in points or pips
i dont want to use an ATR indicator to measue the price range
but it would be nice to see if this PriceActionSwing indication can calculated an Average of the
swing range of the last 10 swings or more for Targets..
let us know if this is possible of is there an indicator out there that can do this

thats what i wanted too. but no one would do it though.

Why the Average of last 10 swings?

Just curious, why the last 10 swings?
On a fast chart that might be less than 30 minutes in time.
Which is not a very big sample to extrapolate any useful information from.

Did you mean the last 10 days?
Might be a better sample to go a little further also? Maybe compare 10 days average to 30 days average, see if there is an "expansion" or a "contraction" between the short term and longer term averages?


The information is already available to the indicator as suggested in the earlier post regarding this subject.

This example calculates the Average length [size] of the rotations, using the Lookback days setting in the Data Series of the chart [say 15 days minus weekends = 11.8 Days] on a 3 Minute Chart.

as 22 ticks is the Average rotation length out of a total of 702 over 11.8 days.
