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.

hi Mike

not certain i understand this correctly

i'm w nonCLR and i've modified ZZ study from ACS_Source

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Looks right.

FT71 has research on the most common reversal level and places lines at those levels as well. I'll try your version since the spreadsheet version posted earlier was causing trouble with my machine for unknown reasons.

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.

I've seen some parts of the webinar and now this is a bit clearer

Definitely because of "Evil Empire" (C#)

no prblm

i've added some comments for my part of the code

FYI, *.dll had been built on Linux.
so the headers are compatible for cross compiling

Would it be difficult to have it paint the histogram in real time? In other words, start calculating the distance from the last swing and painting that as we go instead of waiting for the new swing to form. I realize this will be subject to repainting should we start calculating and the prior swing be changed before a new swing is formed.

If it's the spreadsheet version you are using, then use these formulas instead:

K3: =IF(N3="Up",E3-M4,0)
L3: =IF(N3="Dn",E3-M4,0)

These formulas will paint the histogram real time, but could repaint it several bars back if the zigzag changes.

No I was using the DLL, the spreadsheet version crashed (not responding) Sierra. Probably my fault as I mentioned before, but was easier to just use the DLL.
