Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Pretty easy, just mark the option 'Swing Labels' TRUE and mark all others FALSE.

I also use Dots to point the Swing Hi/Lo points to better visualize swing pivots, marked with Hi/Lo price in option 'Swing Length' - real handy! Regarding the earlier post, as additional feature I would also see value for trendlines drawn through Swing hi/lo points

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!
Paul

Hi Paul

Per Gain247's suggestion, mark False for most of the display options except Swing labels. For Swing length display, choose SwingPrice and you will only have prices on your chart.

ABC Structure Progression???

Hello Dorschden,

After exhaustive backtesting using your amazing PAS indicator I noticed that entering on the AB(C) area (C = area between 61.8% - 76.4% retracement of A/B) is at least as reliable as your entry line plus it's worth another 2+ ticks. Unfortunately I can't anticipate it soon enough as the ABC structure appears instantaneously.

Once it does appear I really like how you made this ABC entry area fade in and out dynamically. Is it possible that this known area be applied in a similar fashion but at the same time that the B plots? Perhaps show the full ABC progression by plotting the A, then the line connecting to B, then the dynamic area for C?

This would provide the quickest signal for the final C set up. Especially helpful signal (w audio alert?) when scanning many charts.

Hopefully my request will make your already amazing indicator that much more effective. Your feedback and time is very much appreciated!!!

Kind Regards!
Todd

Hey everybody! A quick question...When does the this indicator post the higher high/lower low etc. text above the bar - does it do it the following bar or another bar later? In other words, is the signal present immediately after bar close? Thanks so much!

I don't use this indicator so take my answer with a grain of salt. But most likely, it will wait 'x' bars where x=the defined 'strength' of the swing. It will then "go back in time", or "repaint" x bars back the marker on your chart.

actually this indicator plots in real time and doesn't go back in time. of course it needs to repaint if the next bar(s) change the condition.

many thanks to the creator.
