Hi Paps,

I think you will find creating those sort of charts very difficult and not worth the effort.

For charts like you have ninjatrader is free and it gives you free end of day data. So it gets the data stores it and graphs it. So unless your data for your graphs is based on something different than EOD data there doesn't seem to be any point charting from Excel. And there are tons of free indicators available.

Just my thoughts.

I have tried programming indicators in my spreadsheets but it is A LOT of work. You have to find the formula for the indicators and then compute it - which can take several columns of figures.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

If I understand your question, yes.

So if you have a IBM data in one spreadsheet and GE in another you can create a chart with the two on the same chart. You would open both create a chart perhaps in a third sheet and then for the first series highlight the IBM data and for the second the GE data.

Same comments as above - re re-inventing the wheel.

take care

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

hi there @aquarian1 thanks for your comments. Well I do have NT but do not really use it for EOD. Also have OEC have not used it for a while...used it with Jigsaw though for a bit.

What I do use is day in/day out is Tradestation. I think Tradestation is the best platform for retail. And what i have seen being done with Tradestation will keep me trading with it for sometime and hence playing a bit with radar screen.

Well having said the above...i am not really actively trading...am into swings. Am playing with EOD breadth data which is slightly different from O/H/L/C/V info only. There are currently no indicators in NT or good way of plotting this stuff in the regular charting tools since calculations are mine.

All i am looking for is true market turning points....such as early 2002s & 2007s/08s to keep me in the game or so i think. There are few things we could do with a Tradestation Radar screen which I will be exploring....but there also data will be written into excel for EOD analysis.

Lol...why excel?.....i know is a question. Coz what i intend to do is gather all my breadth data...& feed it into something like R due to its analytics or for the moment keep it in excel as excel serves as a good DB maybe MariaDB later. Then there will be either a live feed which will be fed into my Excel or R to analyze against my conditions against realtime against what was yesterday's data "EOD".

This only again will only be needed when synthesizing against COT/EOD/FX/Breadth/Equities/options all together. Unless i am actively day trading i dont need this synthesis...but only use breadth to keep me on the right track.

Well this is what i am upto. I am not good at excel or charts. Have someone helping me on this. My part is to read the markets and trade for swings...& if i have time on a daily basis.

Lol...i know u did not want this info. But since u have been helping with your kinds words on charting...thought will give a lil background. i want to keep it simple hence trying to use excel.


cheers

Hi Paps,

Thanks for the info. It makes a lot more sense to me now. So you want to keep breadth data for a later time and are looking for the major turns.

"feed it into something like R due to its analytics"

what is R?

I guess I was a little shaken by the idea of trying to create a chart like the one you posted in Excel. As far as I know excel will give you simple charts only.

I needed to refresh myself on market breadth . This chart even looks like it was made in a spreadsheet.

hi @aquarian1

R >> What is R? | inside-R | A Community Site for R Well am just getting started on it
Yes i think charts you posted are from Tom's site. Not sure how he develop's those..probably you are right in excel.

Charts i posted are possible in excel... been confirmed by excel expert. lol but i am no expert.

Well lets see how this effort goes....will come to know in a couple of weeks...or will move on for now

Hi Paps,

well interesting to know that you can do that in Excel.
I went to the R link. Seems pretty daunting. I guess the thought of learning a new language is tiring for me.

I look forward to seeing your first Excel masterpiece (and video on how to for the Excel challenged ie me )

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

had this done a while back. 2014-07-31_2230 - som22's libraryBut subsequently moved on since did not have much time to muck with it.

I would rather have more excel systems developed and fine tuned. May not need graphs...though at times they might help.

cheers n thnx
