Very cool. How often do you actually get two or three time frames actually lining up, and a good signal that works out? Appreciate your description, thx, gh skype = Greg.Hohman

@ghman101

Given the summer doldrums and the market environment lately there haven't been a lot of good signals. I just started using the MA last week so once the market gets back to normal that will be a better gauge as I'm still testing it. Basically, I just want to use it to scan the market for potential setups. I did add alerts with sound so that works well also. Here is another screenshot from today's market........Cal

drawing rays

@dorschden,

may I suggest this addition for any future release? I tried to add the rays under the "swing visualization type" myself, but created more of a mess than anything else.

thanks again for this great tool.

If the idea is to extend naked swing highs/lows until they are traded through, that is exactly what I use on my Sierra charts. It's built-in to the ZigZag tool there and I find it very helpful. In Sierra, the price has to trade thru by a margin/percentage that you define, not just 1 tick.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?

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.

Hello I hope this message finds you well. I am new to the threads here so if I am in the wrong for sending this message please let me know. I read a thread concerning a
Price Action Swing indicator. I saw that the indicator could be using in NinjaTrader. I am with Etrade. I am wondering can this indicator be downloaded for Etrade as well. I already tried to download Price Action Swing, it did download to my desktop.

There's a change I want to put into my personal version of this indicator but I thought I'd suggest this as an enhancements instead. An alternate color scheme for the swing lines...

Obviously - the above pic is edited for illustration

On Upswings
- If the volume of this upswing is GREATER than the volume of the prior downswing - color it green
- If the volume of this upswing is LESS than the volume of the prior downswing - color it red

On the downswings
- If the volume of this downswing is GREATER than the volume of the prior upswing- color it red
- If the volume of this downswing is LESS than the volume of the prior upswing- color it green

Any thoughts?

I had a go at this - but you really wouldn't want my hacked code in the standard indicator.

Here's a couple of 'cherry picked' charts from Friday....
900 tick

100 tick - zoomed in on the up/down move at the start of the day

@dorschden i was wondering about a couple of features for your indie..

-ability to set the time format to minutes and hours with separators so its easier to read on the swings?

-have it so as the swing is being built in a location where the most recent number is posted, increment with the current volume/time instead of it holding to update before the swing is completed?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've been asked to post my 'hacked to bits' version of this for the swing coloring....

.cs file is attached, it's called PriceActionSwingDT.

Settings I use are as follows:

@cal1152

This looks like one great indicator, now if I can only get all of the pieces together and learn how to use it properly. Many thanks to the author, @dorschden, and to all that have contributed improvements.

Cal, would you please upload your latest version of the MA template with the multiple ABC, divergence, etc. columns with the MA alerts. Also, I can see that for each column/period that you want to put into MA that an appropriately set PriceActionSwing or ...SwingPro needs to be added to the columns panel but, how does one get them in there? There's nothing like that selectable in the upper left Columns panel!

Thank you
