Welcome to

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.

Thinkorswim - 4 formulas/code


new in the forum, hopefully this is going to be the first of multiple contributitions :-)
Would like to tweak a few formulas that I continuously use in thinkorswim including new mathematical aspects.
Is it possible to have the code for the following functions (also if they
have any other function compounded inside):

Thanks for your insights!

Are you talking about something like this? This is the code for the Exponential Moving Average Study in ToS.

# TD Ameritrade IP Company, Inc. (c) 2007-2016

input price = close;
input length = 9;
input displace = 0;

plot AvgExp = ExpAverage(price[-displace], length);

If so, you can view the code for a study by right clicking instead of selecting the study, then select view.

You can click on the scroll beside the study and edit it. They have a reference, inspector, and even condition wizard for code illiterates such as myself.
