  • 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.

HA Indicator

I was wondering if someone could help me with a heikin ashi bar for Openecry. I have looked all over this forum and other forums and haven't found the exact answer. I had tradestation and switched to Openecry and was able to make a HA through an easylanguage transfer from TS but it does not look exact. I know there will be differences but could someone take a look at the code and suggest any improvements or a new code completely.

inputs: UpColor(green),DnColor(red);

vars: haClose(0),haOpen(0),haHigh(0),haLow(0),

if BarNumber = 1 then
haOpen = open;
haClose = (O+H+L+C)/4;
haHigh = MaxList( high, haOpen, haClose);
haLow = MinList( low, haOpen,haClose);

if BarNumber > 1 then
haClose = (O+H+L+C)/4;
haOpen = (haOpen [1] + haClose [1])/2 ;
haHigh = MaxList(High, haOpen, haClose) ;
haLow = MinList(Low, haOpen, haClose) ;

if haClose > haOpen then
color = UpColor
color = DnColor;

It is always a good idea when asking someone to look at your code for you to have comments embedded.

If it is to be, it is up to me.

You might ask @cory, I think he is a long term OEC user. I've got a HA EL indicator around here somewhere but no clue if it works, I've attached it.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
