@dorschden, @skfutures commented that someone is running the NT8 PAS. Have you uploaded it to a section other than NT8 indicators that I cannot locate? Please let me know. Thank you.


There is PAS that is ported from NT7 by @poncho but original author is @dorschden.
I think some features are missing for ported version and @dorschden is actually publishing nt8 version soon.. so I think he is..

Swing Percentage



dorschden View Post

Swing values:

Here you can choose which information the swings should display.
Information:

- Percentage (in relation to the last swing. e.g. 100% = DT/DB)

Many thanks Dorschden and contributing members, I am trying to only display swings that are a certain percentage from the previous swing. However, I cannot specify the percentage in the "Swing Values" section. I can only choose "True" or "False", either displaying all percentages, or not displaying any.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@hanyadeeb,

what you're looking for is in the "parameters" (swing type = percentage).

Quoting 

I Changed the code structure - so if you use it in strategies or in other indicators, make sure you have a copy of the old version. With the new code structure it is easier to use the swing functions and values in strategies or other indicators.
Added swing tick and swing percentage calculation.
Added swing calculation based on close values.
Added different alerts.
Added risk management tab.
Added, changed and improved some other things.

the "swing values" will show you the % change in relation to previous swing.

Quoting 

Swing values:

Here you can choose which information the swings should display.
Information:
- Duration (in bars)
- Labels (HH, HL,…)
- Length (in ticks, points,…)
- Percentage (in relation to the last swing. e.g. 100% = DT/DB)
- Time
- Volume (Absolute and relative. Relative is the average volume per bar)

here's an example for better understanding:

PriceActionSwing for NT8

The full PriceActionSwing package for NinjaTrader 8.0 is now ready. Thanks to @poncho there was already a version floating around. This version now also includes the PriceActionSwingPro next to the PriceActionSwing and the PriceActionSwingOsciliator.

I just sent Big Mike a message with the PriceActionSwing indicators for NT8, because I can't edit the indicator in the Free Section, so he needs to upload the indicator. He'll probably post a message here, when he uploaded the PriceActionSwing to the download section.

There are two things which I didn't convert. I didn't integrated the GUI elements for the statistic and the risk management features. I might add that within the next couple of weeks. The logic is already in the code. If you need the values you can add "Print"-statements in the code to send the values to the output window. And there is no support for any GomCD related stuff anymore. I might add something similar in the future as well, but no promise there. Every other feature is in there and should work like in NT7.

I've uploaded the NT8 version here:

https://futures.io/local_links.php?action=ratelink&catid=26&linkid=1781

Since this new version breaks NT7 compatibility, I opted to NOT replace the old version, but instead create a new separate entry.

You can still find the NT7 version here:

https://futures.io/local_links.php?action=ratelink&catid=26&linkid=57

I sent out notification update emails to all that downloaded the NT7 version. The description of the NT7 version links to the NT8 version, for those who want it.

Going forward, I assume development will be on the NT8 version only.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Using PriceActionSwingPro in Strategy

Hi everyone.

I am not a programmer unfortunately...

This question is about PriceActionSwingPro for NT7. I wanted to use it in a strategy to enter a trade but it could not compile.

What is wrong with this code? Attempts to compile my strategy returns error CS0119 at the line of this code


if (PriceActionSwingPro(20, 5, PriceActionSwing.Base.SwingStyle.Standard, false).AbcSignals[0] == 2)
{
EnterLong();
}


Many thanks in advance.

I was trying to import it and I get error message saying it can not be imported.
I had PAS from poncho earlier but I deleted that and still it won't let me import because something about duplication.
Can someone help?
