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.

....also, to approximately see price action(relation&trend), for a 3 day period...what adjustment or setting should be used?

statistic number of swings?swing size?...and what is the MAXIMUM Double top/-bottom strength value you can use?

Hey David,

Just curious how you use this indicator.

It occured to me that using two of them......one set to 1 and the other set to 0 might be useful.

Thanks, Jeff

Jeff,

How are you achieving the double-shaded coloring on the MACD panel. Just curious, as this is something I've played with, too. Thanks!

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Hey Wiz,

I add the indicator twice......once with the background on conservative "true" and the second with the background on conservative "false."

Best of both worlds.

I believe this is what you are talking about........if I missed something let me know.

Jeff

On a side note........I do not believe that the MACD BBLineV4 "smoothing" is working properly. Could you check this out and see if you agree? It plots the same no matter what it is set on.

Thanks. That's what I thought you were doing. Same approach I took.

As to the smoothing, I think FatTails responded to this, in another thread. The smoothing doesn't seem to have any effect, no matter what the setting. Haven't taken the time to investigate or do anything about it. Maybe PM FatTails & ask him???

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

how to plot fibs on priceactionswing indicator ?

I did import priceswingaction indicator, I was able to plot slow fib extansion and fib retracement.
How do I plot the fib circulars and fib vertical? As shown in this attachment posted on futures.io (formerly BMT)
Why do we need fib verticals if trying to measure ab=cd
Does it filter out weak retracements? and why?
Where do I learn more about it?
What chart does it work best on? range, ticks, minutes?
Whats the difference between zigzagutc and priceswinaction ?
Don't they plot the same counts, fibs and zigzags?
I hope someone have the time to reply, I know so many questions sorry.
Which indicators are recommended with priceactionswing for confirmation?

Same questions go for me as well, most of the time I get a graph like following:
I can very very rarely spot ABC patterns or retracement points..
Which settings I need to wrestle with?
Please do help dear PAS masters

Check out the most recent webinar by Suri Duddella on Advanced ABC Chart Patterns. It is very good. He also has a book out, but I havenit had a chance to read it.

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.
