Porting the "Traders Dynamic Index" to TOS

Hello TOS Friends ....

I am trying to port the Traders Dynamic Index over to TOS. I want to be able to use this indicator to assess stocks, not just futures in NinjaTrader.

I have completed most of the work myself, but it's "sloppy" (see Attachments), and I'm hoping one of you good folks could help me clean up the code. Then we can post it to the forum for anyone to use. This is a FREE code directly from Dean Malone at Compassfx(dot)com. It's actually a very useful indicator.

It's supposed to use BollingerBands, but I can't code it right. They really don't need to be included, because I have the SMA and 50 Midline already set. I have the RSI set to black on a black background, so I only use the Stochastics and SMA. The ADX was included for 'fun'.

You might also want to look at TOS's "Relative Momentum Index" to replace the Stochastics. It's a very smoothed indicator that functions like the RSI. (Just a thought).

I'm happy to pay for the adjustments you make. I know it won't take long.

Thank you very much for any help you're willing to provide!

Zephyr

Nevermind ... I just figured it out. I had to change the RSI "plot" to "def". It's nice and clean now.

Have you figured it out yet how to get the "Bands" on the indicator??

Been researching and looks like a great idea with good results but can't seem to get it for TOS

Bollinger bands are on TDI

Hi there,

I know this is an old post but I put the BB's on TDI if your interested.

Let me know if you want the study.

Doing the MMfx course in the first week of August. Looks great..

Would love it if you would share your upper indicators used in MMfx course for TOS.


Cheers

Ben

Yes, please attach here to your post.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.
6)

Hi, bsargent ...

Yes, it would be very cool if you could post your changes to the indicator. Thank you for offering!

I found another code for the TDI (for TOS) on the net, but I forgot to log where I found it.

Attached is the code and a picture of the results of the modifications I made. First of all, the code was messed up and I don't know how to fix it. So I removed the Bollinger Bands and color-coded the rest. The way it is now, it's very simple and I'm finding it more useful than both the Stochastics and the CCI. I use the TTMsqueeze and the Stochastic Momentum Index with it. Both are found in TOS.

The most useful part about it (for me), is that it will tell you when a move is going to end by reaching the "overbought" and "oversold" lines. It's very responsive and fast. I color-coded the Stochastic Momentum Index with values of 8 and 3, instead of 3 and 5, and I color-coded the TTMsqueeze (18) along with them, so they are all BLUE or RED at the same time. This has been very helpful to me, along with FIBS. The TTMsqueeze has the Bollinger Bands inside of the Keltner Channel feature. It's much easier to use that indicator, rather than having the clutter of all of the lines on the TDI. I have modified the TTMsqueeze also to make it very clear when the squeeze happens. It you want that code ... I'll submit it too.

Anyway, the code and a screen shot of the indicator is posted below. The YELLOW dashed line is the %D of the Stochastics. I don't know how to plot the RSI, even though it's part of the code.

It's really a useful indicator, especially when it's color-coded to reflect the Stochastic crossovers.

If you have suggestions, please do submit them.

And thank you very much for your help with this!


Zephyr


FOLLOW-UP: I changed the "def RSI" to "plot RSI", and now it has the RSI indicator showing. Then I colored the %D line to black. Still no Bollinger Bands though.

I hope this helps someone ....

Zephyer, I am assuming this indicator is for Think or Swim. How does one convert to Ninja if possible.

Thanks
Hector

It's already been done. Search for it on the net. It might even be in Big Mike's collection. But it's already been ported for Ninja.
