Showme?

I would like to create a plot similar to the one attached (specifically add the arrows.)

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


I have the logic for the arrows but am trying to determine how to create such a plot in tradestation?

I assumed this was a showme study but there is no arrow option in a showme?

Also, how do I added a legend to the plot?

Thanks in advance!

For arrows, the only way I have achieved it is by using Text Labels in indicators instead of plots in showmes and using the "TradeStation" or the "Webdings" font. I am not aware of any native way of drawing arrows in tradestation. Using the Plot statement draws only a dot in showmes.

GoldenRatio,

drawing arrows on subcharts can be done in Tradestation, but you have to use some tricks do accomplish this as arrows can only be located on price data (see here for more information: https://community.tradestation.com/Discussions/Topic.aspx?Topic_ID=133748 ).
It's hard to tell from the image if someone went to the trouble doing the study within TS (or just added the arrows by hand), but it could be done with Multicharts where drawing arrows in a subchart is much easier as you have a reserved word for it.

ABCTG

Hulk or ABCTG,

Would either of you be willing to post a sample TS code to generate the arrows? I read the reference threads but have yet to be successful.

Thanks,
GRT

If you are using TradeStation, you can use OOEL to do what I was suggesting. Here's a sample that draws arrows on a MA crossover. Copy and past into a new indicator. You can experiment with the Webdings font too using "5" and "6" as the up and down chars to use.

 
Code
Using elsystem;
Using elsystem.drawing;
Using elsystem.drawingobjects;

Inputs:
	FastAvgLength(9),
	SlowAvgLength(21),
	FontName("TradeStation"),
	UpChar("q"),
	DnChar("a");
	
Vars:
	FastAvg(0),
	SlowAvg(0),
	Font LabelFont(Null),
	TextLabel UpLabel(Null),
	TextLabel DnLabel(Null);

Once Begin
	LabelFont = Font.Create(FontName, 14);
End;

FastAvg = AverageFC(Close, FastAvgLength);
SlowAvg = AverageFC(Close, SlowAvgLength);

If (FastAvg > SlowAvg and FastAvg[1] <= SlowAvg[1]) then
Begin
	UpLabel = TextLabel.Create(DTPoint.Create(Bardatetime[0], FastAvg + (2 * (Minmove/Pricescale))), UpChar);
	UpLabel.Font = LabelFont;
	UpLabel.HStyle = HorizontalStyle.center;
	UpLabel.VStyle = VerticalStyle.center;
	DrawingObjects.Add(UpLabel);
End;
	
If (FastAvg < SlowAvg and FastAvg[1] >= SlowAvg[1]) then
Begin
	DnLabel = TextLabel.Create(DTPoint.Create(Bardatetime[0], SlowAvg - (2 * (Minmove/Pricescale))), DnChar);
	DnLabel.Font = LabelFont;
	DnLabel.HStyle = HorizontalStyle.center;
	DnLabel.VStyle = VerticalStyle.center;
	DrawingObjects.Add(DnLabel);
End;

Plot1(FastAvg, "FastAvg");
Plot2(SlowAvg, "SlowAvg");
