There was a question I asked a while ago, which was kindly answered to some extent by others as you did not seem to be around then. I would like to post the question again for your answer please if I may. Link to original post below:
What I am basically trying to use your indi for is to try and emulate Timothy Ord's (if you have heard of him) volume chart. Basically comparing the the volume of one swing to the next in terms of percentage.
Thank you for the great indicator and detailed instructions to conficure divergences for custom indicator. (was able to do that for TSI).
Trying to configure for GomCD, I'm having difficulty. I thought i removed all comments as per the instructions on first page, but still could not get the GomCD numbers in there. Can some one please post .cs file with the changes to GomCD?.
To use cumulative delta for the swings or divergence you have to uncomment all GomCD regions in the source code. Press "ctrl + F" or the "Find/Replace" button and search for "region GomCD" and uncomment all the regions and compile it. Of course you have to install the Gom package before.

Hey all -
I could use a little help in understanding how the market analyzer template (PasMa2) sets its Plot = DivergenceSignals. Does the MarketAnalyzer template file have to be manually edited to set the Plot to "DivergenceSignals" or can this be accomplished via the properties window? Further, where did the plot variable "DivergenceSignals" come from? I don't see it in the indicator properties. Clearly I'm confused.
Second, I was wondering if someone could suggest some ways to capture the PriceActionSwingPro's "rDiv" or "hDiv" signals in a strategy. I would like to use the "rDiv" Signals as a Setup or pre-condition necessary before a signal can generate an order.
One idea I have started is to create a public boolSeries variable, bullDivSetup and bearDivSetup. Since MarketAnalyzer can capture Divergence signals I feel like I'm duplicating functionality that already exists. That said, here's where I set values for each BoolSeries:
Any help / thought would be greatly appreciated. Also let me know if you need me to clarify.
The swing high volume number represents the absolute or relative volume traded from the swing low to the swing high or vice versa. If you choose "absolute" you see the complete volume for this swing and if you choose "relative" then you see the average volume traded at each bar in this swing up.
The percentage number doesn't belong to the volume analysis. It's the percentage retracement number for the swing length. E.g. if a swing down is 10 ticks long and the next swing up is 7 ticks the retracement is 70% and if the swing up has 17 ticks the retracement/extension is 170%.
To compare the volume of the swings in a percentage way you have to change the source code to calculate and print the volume retracement for each swing. As example how you can do this see how the swing length is calculated in the source code.
I hope you figured it out by now. If you completely uncomment all GomCD regions in the source code it'll work. I didn't here any other complaints about this. Otherwise write me a short private message.
You don't have to edit the MA template. The MA template is already set to "Plot" = "DivergenceSignals" as you can see under -> Right click in the Market Analyzer -> Columns -> Bottom Left window choose the last PriceActionSwing instance -> Right window in the category "indicator" -> Plot = DivergenceSignals.
The "DivergenceSignals" is a public data series in the PriceActionSwing indicator to give access to the divergence signals. Simply create an PriceActionSwing instance in your indicator/strategy and call the DivergenceSignals series and save the values in your own data series. E.g. (better implementation would be to use OnStartUp, but to keep it simple):
-4 = hidden divergence short entry |
-3 = regular divergence short entry |
-2 = hidden divergence short signal |
-1 = regular divergence short signal |
0 = no signal |
1 = regular divergence long signal |
2 = hidden divergence long signal |
3 = regular divergence long entry |
4 = hidden divergence long entry |

Thanks for your hard work on this indicator and your sharing.
I found one small thing missing in this complete work. The duration of swings is shown in number of bars which is fine for some, but for us using range or tick charts would be useful to see duration in minutes. I know that you can show time of the swing already, but this isn't comfortable to read without : separator between.
Would you consider adding option to show duration in time in further versions? Also using : separator in time would be nice.
