Hi Dorschden

First let me say thank you for a great indicator, all your time and effort is really appreciated.

I have been coding the indicator into a strategy, however it appears to me that the PriceSwingRelation seems to lag behind the appearance of the HH/HL/LL/LH dots.

Earlier in post 97 you advised Beth not to use:

 
Code
                            
if (PriceActionSwing(calcModecalcSizedtbStrengthpsarAccelerationpsarAccelerationMax,  
psarAccelerationStep).DoubleBottom[0] >0
but to use Double top: "PriceSwingRelation[0] == -2" and "DnFlip[0] == true". Whilst this works, it seems late to me, sometimes triggering three to five bars later than the dot appears.

Is there any technical reason why you can't test for values in the DoubleTop / HigherHigh / Lower Low / DoubleBottom values?

Thanks,

Daniel

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.

Michael

Hi Guys,

A while back I had a Gann Swing Indicator made up, as I donít know how to program. I haven't used it for some time.

Thanks to Dorschden PriceActionSwing Indicator, I pulled it out of hibernation. I forgot how nice simple price action alone can be.

The Gann Swing Chart is nice in defining swing highs and lows and with the use of PriceActionSwing Indicator and Fibonacci replacements, one only needs price and volume to define trends and support resistance area.
Cheers
Alex

hi Alex

Do you recall who did this for you? It would be good to get it to handle those outside bars correctly if possible then I think it lends itself to a really nice mechanical system.

Thanks

Michael

A few people seem to be confused here. The swing detection can only be performed once price moves away from the potential swing point. The dots are created after the fact. How much price swing away is required before forming a dot is part of the indicator parameters.

This indicator can be used to assist in analysing price action and trend. Just please don't expect to be able to buy or sell where the dots appear...

Lately I often was asked for the ABC pattern recognition. Actually I didn't planned to make it public for different reasons. But maybe it can help somebody. Of course the ABC pattern is not a Holy Grail but it gives you often a really good entry with a small stop and a good chance for a great move. I used it profitable for daytrading futures and EOD stock swing trading.

I'll uploaded a new PriceActionSwing version (Download PriceActionSwing)with a part of my ABC pattern recognition code. I didn't test the code I implement in the PAS indicator in real time, but it should work. Otherwise you can used the PriceActionSwing_Old for the old PriceActionSwing version.

As always you can choose you own look and feel for the ABC stuff and set some properties in the indicator menu - category Visual pattern.

The next update with the GannSwing mode and the updated statistic will come soonest in a month or so.

Hi Dorschden,

Thank You for your hard work on this indicator....I have been using it for some time and I also use a modified SuperTrend, which I use to color my paintbars and use as my stops. I really would like to trade using actual price swings to color the price bars, and still use the atr for stops. If you could allow price bars to be colored by the price swings-using the Gann Swings that you will be working on. Hope this is possible...here is a link for a real visual look at what I was looking for.

http://www.screencast.com/users/jamthetrader/folders/White%20Belt/media/4bc84af1-9619-4a57-ba24-20899ddd3acf

I use my color bars on the Supertrend: PERIOD-10, Multiplier-3, Smooting-1, I use a 3 range chart CL and 6E, I filter it with a CCI 80-which we built into the SuperTrend. We use an 80 since it helps confirm using a 5 range chart. We do not take and originating signals only retracements. Once again thank you for your hard work. Mark

HH - HL

what do u think of working on an automated strategy for all the time in the market - my idea is just using price bars and HH - HL - LL - LH to enter and exit positions -
enter at the HH and go short - exit at the LL and go long at same time - if you dont get out then you keep on accumulating stock or contracts - you will follow the market and it does not matter if it is trending or sideways -

i have done it a little on live and manual trading but would be easeir and safer to do it on automation - would love to know if there is an indicator that can be incorporated or a way to calculate those situations.

Hi Paulg

I only have HH/HL/LL/LH price labels and % on my chart (per enclosed settings). Please play with the Swing Length option if you want to display price etc.

dorschden,

One thing i'd like to see in your jam-packed indicator is the possibility to have trend lines to link swing highs or lows and that would update until taken out.

Similar to the better trend line:

Hi Beth,
I'm already displaying the swing prices and the %; what I don't want is the % but simply the HH/LL...swing prices.
It seems this simply setting is missing... uh!
