  • 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.

Loving the PAS indicator.
Could a coding whizz add these features:

In the parameters section - the ability to set separate left and right swing sizes.
Eg: a swing point is created with 5 bars on the left side of price and 2 bars to the right of the swing point.

Stop the indicator showing a dot above/below the current live bar, and have it only show when a swing point has formed.

Add the ability to offset the dots/symbols from the price bar

Hi dorschden, thanks for your most excellent indicator.

I am looking for a way to have the swing label colors simply be the same color as its related zigzag swing. Red text for a downswing label, green text for an upswing label. (Or whatever colors have been chosen for up/downswings)

In other words, I don't want to use the "Text colour DTB", "Text colour higher" and "Text colour lower" fields. I don't need the indicator to color the text based on these criteria.

I just want the label to be the same color as its related zigzag swing.

Is there a way to do this in the current indicator? I confess I could not find it.

Cheers
tradermick

After using the PAS indicator for a couple days, I have another possible request. I will attach some screenshots to illustrate.

I am using PAS to identify the Gomi CD in each swing. With CalcOnBarClose set to False, the CD number will update each time price makes a new swing extreme in the current direction, or establishes a new swing in the opposite direction.

My request is, I would also like to see the Delta activity during the time in between the CD changes driven by the swing updates. For example, we start with price making a new lower swing extreme:

This way, we could see the net Delta activity during periods of sideways price movement when new swing extremes are not being established.

Can this be done currently in the indicator? Or would it take additional development work?

Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

Cheers
tradermick

Reading through the thread now, looks like a wonderful indicator. I have a quick question, where does the " ∅ " symbol stand for? Its on a lot of the screenshot on the first pages :-)

Hi Dorschden,

Would it be possible to allow a trader to plot Swing Values of the current session only. That way the left side of your screen stays clean.
