Question

Dorschden: Great indicator. I have one question. When the ABC pattern appears there is a green or red line that appears - almost like a support/resistance line. Should price move up these lines will "step" up or down depending on what price is doing. What do these lines mean? Thanks a bunch for all the work that you have put into this indicator.

Here are some answers to the latest posts.

Is it possible to show the swings/trend/colorOFbars by the number of points/pips/ticks (not by the number of bars - as it is now) ?
Is there a chance to add such a functionality in the future?

Inmax,

I'm not sure, I understand you correct. You want a swing calculation mode, that calculates the swings on the number of ticks the move is made and if the move makes X ticks, then a new swing is found. Is this correct? I plan do add this kind of swings someday but not in the next few weeks.

As for the UTC vs. Standard, for some reason I get much more reliable results using the UTC, at least when applying the indi to Renko bars. That leads me to a suggestion. Could you modify the indi to include an option to choose to base swings either on the highs and lows or closes? The reason that I ask is that often I have noticed on either SbSRenko or BetterRenko charts that quite frequently there are double tops and bottoms that form based on the close.

Chuck,

Thanks for your thoughts on the UTC mode. I'll think about to re-add it again or whether I'll implement an option to calculate it on close prices. Nevertheless if you want more double bottoms and tops you can increase the "DtbStrength" parameter to 25 or whatever and you will get more DB/DT.

I've taken a look at the features and can not see if your indi has an option to visualise Highs or Lows that initially plot, but are then adjusted before fixing once the next leg starts it's search.

Mokodo,

You can use the dnFlip series or the newLow == true && updateLow == false variables for this. This gives you the points where a new initially swing is found. The DnFlip/UpFlip series are also available to other indicators or strategies.



mystiq View Post
now i get "upStatSwing....dnStatSwing...doesnt exist ...message..

Mystiq,

You're correct, I delete them accidentially. You can try the new version I'll post in a few minutes. Except the statistic all should work in NT 6.5 again, but you have to copy the file manually and maybe change the "GridCategory" to "Category" again. I don't have NT 6.5 anymore so I can't test it there.

When I paste the code into a strategy from the first post, I can't use activate the strategy anymore on a chart.

When I add/remove this it won't/will work anymore:

 
Code
                            
             int trend Convert.ToInt32(swingTrend[0]); 

  switch (
trend
  { 
  case -
1
    
// Down trend - do something 
    
break; 
  case 
1
    
// Up trend - do something 
    
break; 
  default: 
    
// No trend - do something or nothing 
    
break; 
  } 

No111,

I didn't test the code in the first post lately but I didn't see a problem with it. Is there any error message in the NT logs?


madelynnjohnson View Post
When the ABC pattern appears there is a green or red line that appears... What do these lines mean?

Madelynnjohnson,

The green/red line for the ABC pattern is the entry line. If price closes above this line, an entry is triggered. The line is the X percent of the last swing. You can set the percentage in the "Visualize patterns" category in the property "Entry retracement".

I uploaded a new version.

I'm looking for a link but can't find it. If in Download section, I can send out notices - but it appears you haven't updated that one since March?

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.

I updated the indicator in the download section (Download PriceActionSwing).

I decided to make a little bit more public.
- Risk management (auto risk calculation for ABC pattern)
- Optimize for market analyzer
- Alerts for ABC pattern

If you use the PriceActionSwing indicator in the market analyzer make sure, that the statistic and risk management is both set to false. Under the plot property you can choose between some public values.
