as I mentioned in my post, there's ONE thing that is repainting. the volume in the PriceActionSwingOscillator indicator. here's the quote again from @dorschden that explains why:
you can load this indicator and see for yourself what happens. a very simple way to see if an indicator repaints is to refresh your chart, and if any values (lines, dots, bars etc) change, that's repainting. you won't find any of that in the pas indicators. they update and don't repaint.
here's an example that shows repainting. if you refresh your chart, those blue and red lines will go away and only one line will be visible.

for the most part why repainting is happening, and how to avoid it, is very well explained by @Zondor:
hopefully that will help to understand what repainting is.

Thanks: 1,247 given,
@Silvester17 and or @dorschden, since you said it is now easier to build a strategy for PAS, may I request you might supply a sample PAS strategy that others could use to review and modify?
Also, I think somewhere there had been a posting of a modification that could be made to PAS to allow Strategy Wizard to use PAS. If anyone could remind us where that is - the custom strategy and the Strategy Wizard would be a great help in experimenting with PAS strategies.
Dear friends , i am new to this indicator i download that indicator , Friends if someone pls explain how to use this indicator or any thread is there available how to use this indicator in trades pls give that link . i am not elite member so pls give a link that use for me .thankyou
it is a great tool, but may you add a feature to extract all the indicator values at swings highs/lows and export them into excel with related candles (OHLC)? with all the other related statistics values ?
this will help us to study the market from a statistical/ probabilistic point of view.
Do you know that you are a piece of "holy grail"?
do you know that such statistical/probabilistic sheets called the "EDGE = Educated Guess"?
Do you know that everybody here MUST read this post and take it as a step zero to leap to limitless sky?
Sir; I must thank you for such great ideas !
I'm always looking for such brilliant ideas - Numbers never lies ! such ideas can make what is a "TRUE EDGE".
Can someone please help me out (PM'ing me might be the best way to go). I am trying to generate a strategy using the PAS indicator in NT8 (I just installed the latest version today)?
My scripts won't compile. It doesn't matter if it is an oscillator based approach or swing indicator based approach, but I would like to automate Long to Short, Short to Long when the indicator flips automatically at the pivot point.
Anyone that can set me down the right path of how this can be done in NT8 would be a saint!!
