@dorschden or any one.

Is it possible to add Delta for the swing?

Thank you
Sudhir

Just want to show you couple of examples on how we can probably take advantage off...see this on lower time frames often and works well when we are in a established trend and on pull backs if delta does not change, we have a high probability trade.
couple of examples from today's ES.

There is difference in swing volume with realtime data and when you click "reload all historical data" through trading day.

For example, some tabs in NT8 are not actively updated if I don't visit them for half an hour.
But when I click "reload all historical data" on that chart there is difference in volume with chart which I was monitoring constantly, charts are the same (have same template).
This also happens in NT7 when in the middle of a day I reload data, swings are different for 10-20% in total volume.
I use "swing type=ticks" in both NT7&8.

Did anyone noticed this?

It all comes down the WHEN the Bid and Ask changes arrive – before a transaction or after it. That part is crucial to the calculation. You will never get an exact repeat of the LIVE bid/ask data on every swing when you refresh the chart.

Is 10-20% +/- margin of error reasonable? I am not sure. It depends on a few factors. During live trading, the numbers are what the numbers are. I don't know anything about your setup so I can't comment further, however that margin of difference does seem a little on the high side.

If the delta between live and historical would fundamentally change your decision to enter a position, it might be an issue you need to investigate further.

Thank you for clarification JonnyBoy!
It would not fundamentaly change my decision, but I like to have precise data as in live trading when I'm analyzing it historicaly, I get it now.

Price Action Swing

@dorschden Love your indicator, I was wondering if it would be possible to have a option to change the HL/LH labels to a green up arrow for HL and a red down arrow for LH. I like text for the DT and DB, but for the HL and LH, instead of text, I would prefer sequentially numbered arrows, that reset to one when the sequence is broken by a lower low or higher high. Please let me know your thoughts if this is something easy or to difficult.Thanks

Hello Pep,

thank you very much for your help! It works, which means that it displays divergences on a chart. But unfortunately some problems occurred: NT8 freezes, PAS displays different results real-time and historically... And I´m not sure if it displays correct results. But it would need to test it more, so I will let to know later...

Thanks for now,
emun

Hi, was any more work done on this modification to spot Cumulative Delta divergences?
Many thanks.

Hi, unfortunately I wasn´t able to finish it. PAS is terribly overcomplicated indicator...

Implementing strategy

Hey guys,

I added some signals to the PriceActionSwingPro indicator and am trying to write up a basic strategy.
I think I'm doing something wrong at a textual level when I'm calling the indicator and passing in some default values. I get a bunch of 'The name 'xxx' does not exist in the current context' errors.
Anyone can offer a quick tip on how I can correct?

Thanks!

Hi pnguyen720,
You may have defined some variables within an if statement, which means they can only be used there. You need to define them outside the if statement to be able to use them more generally. Take a look at reply #4 of this thread on Ninjatrader Forum.
