Quick question about the D3Spotter divergence indicator

Hi.

I had a quick question about the D3Spotter indicator. Do the dots/arrows occur 1 bar before current bar or do they occur as current bar in NT.

My replay data does not seem to be working...don't know why.

Thank you for your help.

my suggestion would be to add a print statement such as :

 
Code
Print("A: "+A);
within the code, look for the dot plotting placed on bar value "A":

 
Code
DrawDot("Hdot" + CurrentBar.ToString(), true, A, High[A] + (TickSize*MDF), Color.Yellow);
DrawOnPricePanel = false;
DrawDot("IHdot" + CurrentBar.ToString(), true, A, Indicator[A], Color.Yellow);
DrawOnPricePanel = true;
 
in some places in the code (not sure if it's in the base version or in my v01), arrows or other style dots may be plotted differently - on index "0" for the arrows and "DotRed" dots:

 
Code
DrawLine("high"+CurrentBar.ToString() + BarsAgo.ToString(), BarsAgo, High[BarsAgo] + (TickSize*MDF), A, High[A] + (TickSize*MDF), DLC, DSD, DLW); 
DrawArrowDown(CurrentBar.ToString(), true, 0, High[0] + (TickSize*MDF), Color.Red);
// DrawArrowDown("I" + CurrentBar.ToString(), true, 0, Indicator[0] + TickSize, Color.Red);
DrawOnPricePanel = false; 
DrawLine("IH"+CurrentBar.ToString() + BarsAgo.ToString(), BarsAgo, Indicator[BarsAgo], A, Indicator[A], DLC, DSD, DLW);
DrawOnPricePanel = true;
if (FirstTickOfBar) {PlaySound(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments) + "\\NinjaTrader 6.5\\Sounds\\train.wav");}
DrawText("DotRed"+CurrentBar, false, "l", 0, High[0]+2*TickSize, Color.Red, textFontSymbolWing, 
StringAlignment.Center, Color.Empty, Color.Empty, 10);

hi dadof3and3,
first - thanks for posting a new version of your indicator here !

Sorry to say, but have a problem to understand your definition of divergence.

you catch those points in the price - thats ok so far

but when i look in the lower panel at the indicator, the dots there doesnt seem to catch a clear MacD - turning-point to define a divergence.

most of the time the indicator takes point in the middle of a movement of the MacD (in this example) and dont wait for spotting swingpoint of the MacD.

in my understanding a falling MacD is not the point to define a divergence on -
you have to wait for a turning-point of the MacD to compare it to a turning-point of the price.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



i had a look at some others (StochK / cci ...) and its always the same there - so its not a problem of the MacD - its the way the diver are defined in the indicator-section.

do you get me ?
what do you think ?

You hit the nail on the head as to why I never use this indicator. It uses price swing/pivot points to determine the divergence, which hardly ever matches up with the lower study. I would much rather test the study indicator for swings and then compare to price. The problem with that is it is much harder to do. It is easier to code it to look for highs and lows in price.

hi danny,
glad that i am not alone with my view
so we will see what dadof3and3 tells us about this - maybe we dont understand the concept behind it.

how about you Danny - should we start a new thread / project put our thoughts together and try to code another version ?

Go right ahead but I am too busy to put any effort toward a new indicator. Right now people asking for NT7 versions of indicators so I am tied up converting.

not *real* divergence.....


Well, you are so right.... All the indicator does is look at price and compares swing candidates, then looks at the indicator for the same bar (without regard to swing high/low in the indicator). I'll ponder that and see what I can come up with... (any help is greatly appreciated).

Thanks for the comments...
