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

@Cheech

Cheech....Here's the MA template attached. Basically, I use the MA for scanning the market and identifying possible setups. Everything, both the Signals and Alerts are already configured in the Alert and Cell conditions. Both the ABC signals, and the Divergence signals use the Price Action Swing Pro indicator. The Swing Trend and Swing Relation columns use the standard Price Action Swing indicator. The template already has the correct type and number of indicators added. It's not difficult, but there are a number of steps you have to go through and might be a little confusing for this post. Just send me a PM if you want to learn how that works. If you right click on the template you'll see Columns and you click on that for all of the settings which can be customized. Make sure the Alert section is checked so it activates the Alerts. When the Alerts start to fill the Alert window you'll probably want to filter it. I set it to High/Medium Alerts only and filter out the Low Alerts.

As an example below are my settings for the 240m ABC signals. Hope it helps!

Again, thanks go to dorschden for the great indicator.

...Cal

@Cheech ....

Thought about adding the indicators to Columns...Here are a couple of screenshots that should show you how. Just open up the Column section and scroll down in the upper left panel to Indicator and double click on it. That will add it to the lower left panel. Then, look over to the Indicator section and you'll probably see the indicator "ADL". Just click on the indicator and a drop down box will appear which lists all of your indicators. Just select PAS or PAS Pro and you're good to go. Hope it helps......

Thank you for posting the template. This post has the answer that I was looking for, which was how to add more PAS indicators to the Columns area. I did add the "Indicators" selection and saw the ADL but didn't notice the pull down to select other indicators. I had visions of needing to hack the XML file. I need to learn to look more carefully the next time. Thanks again for the template and explanations. If I have more questions I'll PM you.

Someone asked me to do the swing coloring based on delta instead of volume.

Swing up
- if the delta in this upswing changed more than the delta in the last downswing - green
- if the delta in this downswing changed more than the delta in the last upswing - red

and reverse for downswings.

Barely any difference for Friday - but it was hardly the best of days....

Fridays 900 tick with swings colored by volume change

Fridays 900 tick with swings colored by delta change

Note the delta mod was a change to PriceActionSwingPro - but that doesn't have ZigZagUTC swing calculation which I prefer. I will watch both next week on days where we have better movement & report back.

Hardly a shock though in terms of results.

New version!!!

I sent @Big Mike an updated version, which he will upload whenever he has time (Download PriceActionSwing).

Updates:
- Improved swing duration and time output
- Add naked swing visualization
- Add developing swing volume (repainting)
- Add zig zag lines coloured by volume analysis (as suggested by@DionysusToast )

The old market analyzer templates will probably not longer work with this version. I'll upload a new one in a few minutes.

Hi @dorschden,

Would you please consider an option to print the values of the divergence indicator at the price panel swing highs and lows.

Many thanks for a great indicator.

Cheers!
