What I did @PHXtrader was at the time a new swing is confirmed, I'd append the last swing as a CSV to a text file. Same as excel.The struct List<> swingLows and SwingHighs are your friend. Extend them (add additional fields) with more values to make the code easier to write those values. And like the brilliant author of this indicator(you rock) said, write that data at CalcDnSwing CalcUpSwing. make sure your using System.IO. Create string builder and append away

private void writefoo()

// There is too much code below, but you get the point.  
 StringBuilder sbData= new StringBuilder();
 if (curHighRelation == Relation.Lower)
                    sbData.Append("LH"); sbData.Append(";");
                if (curHighRelation == Relation.Higher)
                    sbData.Append("HH"); sbData.Append(";");
                if (curHighRelation == Relation.Double)
                    sbData.Append("DT"); sbData.Append(";");

-- next list of data. Usually a loop thought the List<>

                    File.AppendAllText(@"C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\NNData\mlNewSET_V1.txt", sbData.ToString());

been collecting data to train a NN - but that's another topic. I currently use Mongo DB for my data mining. But this is actually easier. Hope that helps!!

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

Has anyone done any statistics on the results of the ABC patterns? Win rate etc? Are they reliable signals to trade or do they require additional subjective input?

Also, is the entry point based on the zig zag indicator? Ie, can you use the entry points on historical charts to realistically calculate win rate etc?



Edit: Firstly I should say thanks to dorschden for creating such an incredible tool. I can see you have spent alot of time and effort on it, awesome effort, thank you!

This request is originally posted in the "free incicator" thread.

@traderpards helped by fixing the specific strategy. But it would be much better if the fix was in the PASwingPro indicator so it could easily be plugged into multiple strategies without the editing.

Wizard generated strategies cannot be manually edited and then continued with the wizard. So once the stratgy is fixed it cannot be modified by Wizard.

May I request someone take a look at the previous post referenced below that includes the attachments? It would be a great help. THANK YOU!


I too facing the same problem of compilation error when I try to incorporate this indicator in the strategy analyser.
Can you share the copy of strategy analyser used with Swing pro indicator.

Appreciate your help

it would help to see a few snapshots of this indicator in action, and a little verbage as to how it works, or what its supposed to achieve,

perhaps more than two existing indicators can be combined to achieve this goal

Volume Ratio alert

Attached is a variant of PasPro which plays a sound when the
previous leg's wave volume is greater than the pullback's
volume by a multiplier set in the variable VolumeRatio.
To disable it, set VolumeRatio to 0.
My first attempt at Ninja code - so comments and testing very
It compiles okay but doesn't export, so it's a cs file.

can anyone add the function of calculating swing time/points by close? currently the indicator calculates swing time/points by High and Low. thanks

I too would like this addition - close to close swings and the ability to define swings by tick size.
