Don, appreciate the suggestion, and its good idea, since there is so much to read in this forum. I started with this one, but since you seem to have found some other good ones, let me know the threads that you consider as best. Currently my only focus is vsa/vpa related topics, but maybe there are other things that are equally good and more modern thoughts.
I get error messages for the lines of code that define Value18 and Value20 in the TOS verson of the Better Volume Indicator that you posted. Any idea how to fix those? I've only done basic coding in TOS and can't spot the error.
I don't understand the fascination with the better volume indicator. Everything it shows on the volume histogram is either obvious to the naked eye (low volume) or confusing. It makes the same fundamental mistake that most indicators make when dealing with volume - it averages data points. Just my opinion but to learn VSA you don't need the better volume indicator. It might also be telling that the creator of the indicator doesn't use it.
I am a beginner ToS user, and not especially knowledgable about TOS (.ts) script rules. I am trying to understand what of this file I should copy to my ToS thinkscript to get it to be useful/run. I first transferred it to notepad to review it, but found what appears to be some non-script text interdespersed throughout. Are there parts of the file I should not paste into the thinkscript field? Could you provide any guidance on transferring the file?
Many thanks for all the time you spent creating this. It must have accrued to a significant amount!
All you need to do is save the file in the .ts format, on your desktop, documents, wherever you will be able to find it. Then while in the studies section of TOS, click on the imprt tab located near the bottom of the page, go to tne section where you saved the .ts file, click on the file, then click on the import tab located in the TOS section. No need to cut and paste. Hope this helps.
The following user says Thank You to dqbuzz for this post:
As a big fan and user of VSA I wana thank you guys for this great indicator - this version actually got me interested in thinkscript coz am a lil clued up on VSA concepts/signals and can easily pick up some of them without any sort of indicator.
one thing though, looking at the indicators posted on here, it looks like its missing some sort of a shakeout signal which is usually (according to my understanding of VSA) an opposite of an Up Thrust - aka Reverse Up Thrust.
nevertheless - thanks for sharing the indicator and knowledge of what's possible.
Hello I'm new using the VSA I undesrtand the symbols below, middle and above candle sticks but someone can tell me what means the color on candle sticks (not symbols just candle sticks) some candles are grey others green, etc.
Thank you so much
