Wizard,

I have downloaded your template and Indicators and studing how it works.
One question I have is :what is the purpose of ADXVMA in Price Panel and how you incorporate it in taking long/short position ?

Can you tell me how to get rid of Trade Order Panel from the right side of the template Panel?

Thank You

Pakeez,

To close the Chart Trader panel that runs along the right side of the screen, click the icon (upper left / center) that looks like a stack of money & coin - between the magnifying glass icon & the chart icon (I've attached a screenshot). That turns the Chart Trader on/off. The purpose of the ADXVMA is to show - long term - where the market is trending (up / down or sideways). When it's BLUE & showing a strong angle to the up side, it would be best not to take shorts. When it's RED & showing a strong angle to the down side, it would be best not to take longs.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Peter,

After Rjay pointed that out I checked (market replay after end of yesterday) & also confirmed. I spoke w/ Sharky last night & he didn't seem to be aware of it. I sent him screen shots from 12:38 - 12:44pm (CST) as examples. Don't know if he's planning on looking into it. It hasn't caused me any difficulty, as I keep the indicators set to Calculate On Bar Close = FALSE. I'm only concerned with the current bar. Don't really pay attention to the closed bar, although, it shouldn't, once it's painted it, re-paint it. Sharky says becuase he scalps 3 ticks at a time, it really hasn't been a problem for him, since he's never in any position long enough for it to cause him a problem. I'm more of a long term (intra-day) trader. I like to stay in a position until the direction changes & then try to (as best I can), change position to match the direction of price & stay in the trade. Not being a programmer, I wouldn't even know what to look for as far as the 'repainting' issue is concerned. I'll ask Sharky if he would be so kind as to take a look & see if he can fix the problem.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Hi TW

I agree, I just changed both setting to calculate on close. By the way, this presentation is just awesome. I love it.

Thanks,

Pete

Thank you, Peter.

I've attached a screen shot of today's action, so far. I added the Linear_Regression_v01_1 indicator (AT RJAY'S SUGGESTION, I MIGHT ADD, AND A VERY GOOD SUGGESTION!) to the Holy Grail chart template & am complementing it with (Sharky's suggestion) some of his setups (to the left) in a 4 Range chart. Useful in helping to identify where to place / move stops.

Issue's solved for me, by changing the calculate on close. I'd agree not worth the time to try and fix.

Thanks everyone

Hi TheWizard,

As posted earlier, This indicator repaint issue does not make any difference to some trader's trading styles.

I really don't think the indicator needs to be changed unless the creators want to make changes or if someone else wants to steps up to the plate and create their own version.

Personally, I will not be using the indicator.

My thoughts on repainting were posted earlier in this thread.
