Hmmm . . .

Import failed. The NinjaScript Archive file you wish to import was generated with a newer version of NinjaTrader and is not compatible with the version installed on your PC

I am currently on 6.5 -- I must be missing something. Any ideas? Thanks


OK, I tried to import it myself and got the same message. I'll try to load up a different one after I've checked to make sure it works.

,,,

1.VE1—The range of the current bar is greater than the range of the previous bar multiplied by the variable “range expansion”. The default value for range expansion is 1.3
2.VE2—The range of the current bar is less than the range of the previous bar
3.VE3—The distance between the open and the close of the current bar is less than the distance between the open and the close of the previous bar
...

type 2 looks awesome!

and with my restrictive selections I won't capture it so I loosen it up a bit

here is the code
( Close[0] >= Open[0] || Close[0] >= Low[0] + 2*TickSize )) // for up triangle

( Close[0] < Open[0] || Close[0] <= High[0] - 2*TickSize )) // for dn triangle

Ahh! Very interesting. You may like the rest of my thread (as I get to it). I'm going to explore a few different ways of "loosening it up" and how those ways backtested, etc.

But in fact I didn't try the one you show me here. I also never tried 5m chart, I was only working with tick charts (and these volume patterns have a somewhat more specific meaning on tick charts--I will explain in the thread.)

Your chart looks very impressive. I think there's lots to explore here.

Thanks!

Ron

Hey guys, I haven't been posting here for a while, the reason is I'm currently using Renko charts and my volume patterns indicator doesn't work with Renko. I'm quite puzzled about that, so I have my tradestation charts up on a few timeframes showing me the volume.

Anyway, I started a thread about trading with market cycles. In my trading, I use three things:

- breakouts of S/R including swing pivots
- volume
- cycles

If you're interested in market cycles, please take a look:

Market Cycles For Fun & Profit

PS: Turning Point - I hope you will participate!

I like to trade breakouts using cycles and volume. think it's a pretty good combination.
