@Silvester

Thanks for the clarification. I will adjust the numbers until I find what I'm looking for in the indicator.

I was wondering something with the PriceActionSwing indicator. I used the wizard to create a strategy using this indicator to compare to the Higher High and Lower Low bars 2 bars back from the current bar, but the strategy generated an error. I'm new to coding, only 1 week of experience, and thought a simple strategy wizard generated code would be easy to create. Below is what I was trying to accomplish with the strategy:

If the current bar's Low/High is the same as the Lower Low/Higher High in either of the last 2 bars, take a long/short position with a 15 tick trailing stop.

Of course more would need to be included in order for this to be a good strategy, but was trying to make a simple strategy to see how the indicator would enter a position visually.

Dear gretzkyless and coders.
I tried to put your code into strategy analyzer to see how itīs working but compiler tells me always that
"PriceActionSwing.Utility.SwingTypes.Standard"
"is no valid method / not valid in context".
When I search for a solution I cannot find a "PriceActionSwing.Utility....... in my indicators at all, I think I am using a wrong indicator version. I tried to reinstall several downloads from download area and your posted versions, but it doesnīt work, could you help me - or other member ?
Thanks. Kind regards, Christoph

@resist - indicator works fine. Would need to speak with creator of indicator i think to put into a strategy since I think this indicator was only meant for illustrative purposes. Trying to figure out how to possibly use the logic in a trading strategy I'm trying to create. If I'm able to figure out, I will post here without giving too much of my strategy away.

Volume Trend Issue

Is there any problem with the Price Action Swing Oscillator indicator when Volume is selected for indication?

I used this indicator to plot the volume trend and crashed my NT all day yesterday. The NT will start but as soon as I click on a chart, menu, or anywhere on control panel, or even try to close the NT, the NT will gray out and go into an un-ending spin with my computer running like crazy.

My Fix: I could not get any help anywhere so I forced shutdown the program again, deleted a file called "_Workspces.XML" then restarted the program with only the Control Panel and was able to rebuild the Workspace I was previously using without this indicator and things are fine for now.

Wondering if anyone had similar issues with the Volume indication option.

@aligator,

that's strange. I normally don't use volume as swing indication. but anyway tried a few things. applied it to several charts, created a template and even a workspace. so far everything still working fine.

it would really surprise me if the problem is this indicator.

@Silvester17, Thanks.

It surprises me too. There may be a couple of reasons that I am not sure of:

1. Does it function when you set the COBC to false with Volume selected for trend?
2. Would that be a "Sunday" issue (market closed or hardly moves) when COBC = false is looking for an uptick or down tick for calculating the ZIg-Zag and volume trend?

As I mentioned, I deleted the Workspaces.XLM file last night and things seem to be fine for now. I have not dared to load the indicator again

It could very well be that I had a corrupt Workspaces.XMl file. I should remember this fix for future if it happens again. But frankly, I was loosing my patience and was getting ready to ditch NT - ZenFire and use my TOS account.

Cheers!

@aligator,

for all my tests I used COBC = false.

I never had a workspace issue, but I remember reading about that exact problem. so just go ahead and load that indicator. it'll be ok.

@greenroomhoo,

because it changed its name. PriceActionTrend is now PriceActionSwingOscillator.
