In his effort index video Karthik Marar points to his new Buying and Selling Pressure Indicator and Effort Index as complements to the VSA.

@satanscashcow

Effort Index to go along w/ VSA looks cool.

Volume to improve your trading

This is not exactly VSA but it is volume/ spread related

Yesterday I watched this

TradingPub | How To Use Volume to Improve Your Trading

To sum the presentation it was pitiful, sell this buy that (as expected) with a nugget of info here and there, albeit not much for a trader with experience.

For those that do not have the former search here on futures.io (formerly BMT) and/ or the web with pointed queries etc

Back to the volume related webinar listed above - you can find a much better (no pun intended) bettter volume indicator at thinkscripter dot com (Hubert was selling his for 97 clams and you get this with that bull shit, yadda yadda)

TS_BetterVolumeCustomColors_Vapril12 (Credit Barry Taylor, Eric Purdy)

Login | ThinkScripter

I compared his (Hubert) "Climactic Volume Indicator" to the one Eric wrote (above link) and his (Eric) far out weighs Senters BS.

Full disclosure - I'm using a script/ study written by Stephen Harlin called VSA_Lite_v2STUDY

Search the thread here

Login | ThinkScripter

What I like about this study is it incorporates standard deviation moves 1.985 and -1.985 for the spike bars. This tends to cut out the noise allowing the operator to focus on "hey, hello, something is going on here, pay attention"

Not that Eric's study doesn't do this, I prefer this one

After all isn't that/ this the purpose of VSA to call you attention to "abnormal" activity?

Cheers, ride safe and keep the rubber side down

Has anyone tried the VPA Green Arrow scanner. I think the VPA Green Arrow shows the where the sign of strength is starting to increase prices. I just started using it and I was wondering, if anyone else would like to try it and share their opinions on it. It's good to get an early notification of a sign of strength; however, sometimes it comes too early and the prices might not increase until later.

I've attached it to this post, so please let me know what you think. This is not my code and I wouldn't know how to change it. I think someone had translated it from Karthik Marar's Amibroker code into ThinkScript. The attached file is the ThinkScript version.

@StockJock

Perfect Hedge has done some very interesting study's over a thinkscripter to say the least

I just could not garner useable information from that study (me not the study)

I don't know if you've had a chance to visit the thread but it seems to start out strong and then fade into this and that

Hence my using the one by SwimTrader

I've a thread over in in the trading thread about scalping/ intraday on /CL, I don't know if that would be of any use to you or not

-Bill

@StockJock Re the VPA Green Arrow Scan, it works well but the results are few as green arrow occurrences are infrequent. I changed the time frame to lower (e.g. hourly,etc..) to get more results.
