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.

Where's that setting at or is my version old ?

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


Could be done. Indicator attached shows swings highs and lows.

Only think that needs to be added is the calculation of the average size of a swing.

Example is calculated from average size of both upswings and downswings.

Good suggestions and I'm already working on a statistic add on with almost the same stuff you mention. There is the average up-/down swing length and duration in bars and the same for the last x swings. Furthermore I differ this in up trends with higher high/low and down trends. An with this values I plan to visualize an exit area, so it should be possible to enhance the exits.

It is not so much work, but at this moment I'm very busy and next week I'm on vacation. So I can release the statistic primary in some days.

Hi There,

Was curious if you had plans to create a Sierra version?

Thanks,
Dion

Price Action Swing Stratagy

Team, not sure if anyone still uses this indicator or has intimate knowledge of it but I just started using it. I have not gone through all pages on this thread but I have skimmed through alot of it. I like the indicator alot and I have been toying with it to fit my style. My question is can it be turned into a strategy or has it already been and I just cant find it on here? I am new to Ninjatrader about 2 and a half months so I am not sure of all the parts involved if I wanted to try myself.


Thanks and Happy Trading!

PAS question

@dorschden

i love your price action swing pro indicator, it's a wonderful indicator!! many thanks for sharing such a great tool

is there a way to plot the volume per point at a swing high/low?

it currently can plot volume and number of points/ticks, etc at a swing high/low. i would like to divide the volume by the points/ticks and plot the results.

if the indicator can do this, but would require changing the current code, would you point me to where in the code the change would be needed and some guidance about what the code should be?

thanks again for such a wonderful contribution to all the members here!

the pas indicators do not repaint. it has been explained multiple times in this thread. here's a quote from @dorschden:



here, I tried to explain the difference between repainting and updating:




with the last update, building strategies has been made even easier. there're also several examples in this thread.

Thanks Silvester, I think I got a pretty good understanding on what it means by updating. You didn't really touch on what would happen in a repainting scenario, that's what I don't understand because what you just explained as updating, I initially thought was considered repainting. Do you mind explaining a little further? Thanks.
