just did it again and still say's a CS file, not sure whats happening?

Without you being more specific, can't help. The link in the thread points to a zip file, I checked for a third time.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I can't get the paint bars in the swing trend indicator to work anymore.

Hi Silvester17,

Thanks for the information on the PriceActionSwingTrend indicator and the error message. I forget to set the showRiskManagement variable default to false. This is the same as for the market analyzer. If you change in the code of the PriceActionSwing indicator the variable showRiskManagement to false and re-compile the indicator, it should work. I'll fix this in the code in the next few days.

This was a bug, I fixed it. Download the indicator again and it should work.

In the PriceActionSwing indicator the Paint Bars are the Gann bars and they only used for the Gann swing calculation.
- Green = Up bars
- Red = Down bars
- Black = Inside bars
- Blue = Outside bars

Updated version

I uploaded a new version (Download PriceActionSwing) with a simple bug fix.

In the previous version, I forget to check, whether the indicator is applied to a chart, which was the reason that the trend indicator doesn't work anymore. Now everything should work like expected and you have nothing to care.

I got some questions about the market analyzer. I'll attach the template. Save it under C:\Users\Username\Documents\NinjaTrader 7\templates\MarketAnalyzer, load it in the MA and change the timeframe to what ever you want.

I am pretty new to trading and want to fully understand what is going on in this indicator.
Can someone explain the QTY/R/R/Loss/Win/Entry in the top bar?
I am not sure how to use this?

Thanks!!

This is a great Indicator. Where can I find documentation describing what its features and functionality are. Also, what does the tool bar at the top of the chart represent.

Thanks.

Missing Audio Alerts files


Dorschden,

Where can we find the Audio files that you are referencing under the Alerts Section? They were not included in the zip file.
(ie, ABC_Long.wav, ABC_Long_Entry.wav, ABC_Short.wav, ABC_Short_Entry.wav)
