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.

@aligator,

not that I like

the swings DO NOT repaint. the only thing that repaints is the volume.

I would think that depends on the swing size that you choose.

Thanks a bunch. I did find a little info at the beginning of the thread:

"a new swing is found when price is above or below the high or low of the last N bars and N = Swing size."

OK, so for a swing size of 3, it mean for a swing high to complete, the next 3 bars must have a lower high. At that point some data such as Volume or Divergence will no longer re-paint. True? This is really what I am looking for: Where do I consider a swing divergence or volume to be fixed and no longer changes.

I recall when Zig Zag indicator was first introduced in Metastock back in early 80's there was a caution note not to trade the zigzag, it was only intended for visualizing swings.

Oh well, if there is a one lagging indicator it is the zigzig.

the way I understand, lets say you have a higher high, and as soon as a higher low or lower low is printed, then the higher high is confirmed.

and I really like the pas indicator, but I would never use the zigzag.

@Silvester17

I have a issue withPriceactionswingpro- Naked Swings>Show historical naked-set to true and show naked swing line false......the historical naked swing line will not plot. Have you noticed this?

If you set historical naked swing to false and naked set to true the naked will plot and the historical does not> so when reversing setting lines plot correctly

@Rad4633,

yes, I've noticed that. the way I understand it, you can only have historical if naked swing line is set to "true".

 
Code
if (showNakedSwings == true && nakedSwingLowsList.Count > 0)
            {
                while (nakedSwingLowsList.Count > 0 
                    && nakedSwingLowsList.Keys[nakedSwingLowsList.Count - 1] >= curLow)
                {
                    int counter = nakedSwingLowsList.Count - 1;
                    double nakedSwingLowPrice = nakedSwingLowsList.Keys[counter];
                    RemoveDrawObject("NakedSwingLow" + nakedSwingLowPrice.ToString());
                    if (showHistoricalNakedSwings == true)
                    {
                        DrawLine("NakedSwingLow" + nakedSwingCounter++, false,
                            CurrentBar - nakedSwingLowsList.Values[counter], nakedSwingLowPrice,
                            CurrentBar - curLowBar, nakedSwingLowPrice, nakedSwingLowColorHist,
                            nakedSwingDashStyleHist, nakedSwingLineWidthHist);
                    }
                    nakedSwingLowsList.RemoveAt(counter);
                }
            }


with other words, you can have either both, none or just naked swing lines. but you can't have just historical swing lines.

for further explanations, I think it's better to ask @dorschden

By using the "print output" method mentioned earlier in this thread, I sent the tick values and the time values to the output window everytime a new HH/LL was declared. I have sent this data to excel for analysis. However, is there any way to retrieve just the HH/LL and not everytime a new threshold is met?

For example, here is roughly how it looks on my output:

-7 Swing Low
8 Swing High
11 Swing High
12 Swing High
13 Swing High
-15 Swing Low
-16 Swing Low
11 Swing High


As you can see, it is just recording a new value each time the HH/LL is pushed. Is there any way that I could get the "final values" just for data analysis purposes? So that it would look like:

-7 Swing Low
13 Swing High
-16 Swing Low
11 Swing High

Thanks in advance!

you have to keep track all of them since you don't know which one will be the last high (until the next new high or low).

I understand what you're saying, but what I'm trying to do is to just find those "final" values so that I can use them for historical purposes. I'm not trying to do this for current trades, but instead just for historical data.

Alerts not working?

Hello, I just started using NinjaTrader. I am testing out the indicator and tried to set up the sound alerts. Basically, I want the sound alerts to fire when the swing points are plotted on the chart. Somehow the sound alerts are not working. I read on Ninjatrader support that I need to open my Alert window (File->New->Alerts). I have done so, but there is still no sound alerts.

I am using Ninjatrader 64-bit and a simulated/demo account from one of the ninjatrader brokers for my test setup.

I can't embed any pictures as my post count is too low. Basically, I have done the following:

Alerts
File name AC=CD long Alert1.wav
File name AC=CD long entry Alert1.wav
File name AC=CD short Alert1.wav
File name AC=CD short entry Alert1.wav
Use AB=CD alerts True
Use AB=CD entry alerts True

Would anyone be able to advice? Thanks in advance!!!

@RYap,

I thas nothing to do with the Alert window. You have to put the desired sound files in the NT sounds folder (C:\Program Files\NinjaTrader 7\sounds).
Than you can choose them via indicatior menu in the alert section.

hope this helps.
