I would like them to show the current theoretical price of an option based on B&S or some other model. It can help when you trade options with large spreads. Today they only provide future theoretical price which is based on the current mid price and user inputs on passage of time and underlying price. It is also very inaccurate.

Hello,

I would love to be able to backtest and optimize strategies, I really think this is a must.

Currently the ability to test strategies by running reports is really slow and lacks many features.

Also I would add the possibility of calling outside sources from the thinkscript code, this will help connect thinkscript to many other languages and platforms.

Would using the Analyze tab resolve this? At the bottom they gives you the option to change the Model used, and updates in real time

Hello, I have TOS newbie question -
I am trying to get a pseudo daily chart of ES in TOS.
I would like to plot only data between 9:30-16:00ET as each "daily" bar on a multi day chart.
Please enlighten me. TIA!

I have had a think or swim account for about 6 years and I know there is a ton more bells and whistles in in that any other platform. I hate! hate! hate! that you cant customizes the active trader widow so you can see the bid ask columns better. All the energy spent in putting a stupid mine sweeper game into think or swim and you cant even customize things so you can see them. I can only use the black background with think or swim as my eyes get strained with the lighter color backgrounds. If you use the black background you can barely see the only the one and only dark orange block that is non customizable that is the last price sold on the active trader. The one and only reason I use Think or swim is because they have direct in and out ACH banking
For active traders Ninjatrader blows Think or Swim out of the water.. but no Ninja Brokers have in out ACH ...

Can someone translate the attached Ninjatrader code to TOS, (was originally by Jabeztrading)? it Creates the Cyan, Magenta and Blue boxes in the image. I tweaked it a bit, but not sure how to translate it to TOS.

Thanks,


John

Thank you for the indicator code John.
It is not possible to convert it to tos code in full details....
Here's the piece of code that plots upper and lower boundaries on the chart..

 
Code
                            
declare upper;
input CongestionZoneBars 2;
def UpDownpattern =  ( (Close[1] > Open[1]) or (Close[1] >= Open[1] && Close[1]>(((High[1]-Low[1])*0.5)+Low[1]))  ) && Close[0] < Open[0]; 
def   DownUppattern = ( (Close[1] < Open[1]) or (Close[1] <= Open[1] && Close[1]<(((High[1]-Low[1])*0.5)+Low[1]))  ) && Close[0] > Open[0];
def  Upperboundary = if UpDownpattern then highest(HighCongestionZoneBars) else  Upperboundary[1];
plot ub = if upperboundary == 0 then high else upperboundary;
def Lowerboundary = if DownUppattern then lowest (LowCongestionZoneBars) else Lowerboundary[1];
plot lb = if lowerboundary == 0 then low else lowerboundary

growex,

Thanks for looking at this. I loaded the code you sent, into TOS, and got the following. Is this what you get as well?

im trying to figure out to add time parameters to the monkey bar study in TOS. Im trying to add the collapsed monkey bar study on the extension of an expanded monkey bar chart with the after hours price action, but only have the collapsed monkey bar study show the price action from 09:30 - 16:15.
thanks ahead of time for any help or suggestions.
