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.

Thanks man...

The other day I had to lower the setting to 5 to spot one that I liked using the PAS Pro. So, I guess I just need to figure out how to use the tool.

Will you share how you use this diverse and beautiful thing?

I'm simply spotting volume divergences and that just scratches the surface.

sorry I can't.

I'm not using it, even though it's one of the very best indicators available. and the competition is huge with the @gomi, @Fat Tails ....

@wldman, I believe the indicator supports percentage instead of a number of bars (swing strength). To me, this makes much more sense so I would encourage that setting.

I am doing....

something wrong or not understanding @Big Mike as when I try percent in swing type I do not get any divergence readings. Does anyone else look at percent. I do not see language describing this in the thread. Dan

you're using a 5 percent swing size. so looking at your chart, the high is around 1.3580, meaning the next possible swing low is around 1.29. the low on your chart is around 1.3525, meaning the next possible swing high is around 1.42.

not surprised you don't see any divergences. in fact you don't even see any new swing highs or lows

maybe we should ask @dorschden if there're any updates, to add the possibility to enter a percentage of less than 1.

in the mean time, you could also use ticks (how many ticks between a swing high and a swing low). that's the better solution than percent. at least for now.

edit: I added the option to enter less than 1 in my version. this is an example of 0.25% swing size in es:

and here's an example with 20 ticks. should be about the same like 0.25% (for es):

@dorschden:

Is it possible to add CCI and anaKVO indicators in the drop down list for Divergence lines plotting?
I know @silverster17 had did this revision in your previous version by modifying PASPro & PASBase codes.

@silverster17:

Can you assist in adding these indicators in this new version please.

Thanks to both of you to respond positively and for upgrading the code from time to time.

Regards,

Raj1

Hey...

@Raj1

You mean @Silvester17 , right?

Yes, I affirm the quandary. Is it better to have anaKVO in there or a % swing? Since I do not know how the % swing will be different, I'm staying with the Silvester17 version that has the anaKVO included.

I know you are swamped @Big Mike , but if you could share on % for the swing divergence setting I would be glad to hear it.

On this chart I have two PAS pro iterations and I still feel like I am missing things...so I will have to figure that out or stay as a manual dee ver gance spotter. ANY educated relevant input appreciated.

@wldman, I use 3% but I trade a much bigger time frame than you. My smallest chart shows the past 6 trading days.
