Bill,

You forgot the txt file attachment. BTW, can you also provide me with your EL code that generated the txt file?

I don't know why it did not go with the post last time. I'll try again.
I had deleted the earlier file, so now I created new ones to attach again. Hope it works this time.
I don't need to use EL code to export data. On the TradeStation chart, I just click on the chart and choose View Data Window. Then choose View All (instead of just one bar); then Save.

Good luck.

Bill

Thanks Bill,

I think that I am getting a hang of EL. I was able to whip up the following codes:
 
Code
Regression Indicator


inputs:  Price( Close ), Length( 3 ), Displace( 0 ) ;
variables:  Var14( 0 ) , Var17(0) ;

Var14 = LINEARREGVALUE (SlowK(3), 3, 0) ;
Var17 = AVERAGE (Var14, 3) ;
if Displace >= 0 or CurrentBar > AbsValue( Displace ) then 
	begin
	Plot1[Displace]( Var14, "L_RegSlowK" ) ;
	Plot2[Displace](Var17, "Avg_LRSK");
End
It seems to work. Many thanks for your help.

You are welcome.
I understand your code (good coding), but don't understand why you would create that indicator (which is essentially the SMA of the Linear Regression Value of SlowK of price). I plot that next to a regular TradeStation indicator SlowK(3,3), I find them about 98% matching each other in shape and turns.

By the way, how do you use the indicator in trading?

Good book. When I bought this same book from John in his live seminar many years ago, he autographed it for me.

The use of stochastic from his book does not require anything like the "Linear Regression Value" function you first showed in your request. The generic Stochastic-Slow indicator already provides both the SlowD and the SlowK for the cross-over analysis.

One caution in testing this idea you mentioned: the method works ok in a sideways market. It sucks if against a strong trend. That's why in John's book (Chapter 10 ?) he provided a method to project if the trading day is likely to be up, down or sideways. However, that's just for day-trading.

Good trading.

Bill
