Thank you...

@Fat Tails

@hunter548 There you go Hunter. You will not get better input or advice from a more qualified source than that.

Fat Tails-

The item that we had been talking about was adding the option in a Heiken Ashi study to allow the calculation to paint a standard OHLC price bar or a standard candle rather than plot the synthetic HA bar. You had asked me to choose which Heiken Ashi study I was going to use. I will do that and communicate with you today. Thank you very much for the assistance with that. Dan

@wldman: That Heikin Ashi thing would be easy to do anyhow.

Will meanwhile make a few modifications to the Bollinger and Keltner Universal indicators and post them in the downloads. If you are fast enough, I will listen to your suggestions.

quite humbling to hear from a guy like you. I do not have any suggestions for you right now. However, seeing that you are open to that, I will write down my ideas about how I use your indicators and communicate with you in a general way so that you could consider or ignore as it suits you.

I will find the best version of Heiken Ashi to benefit from your revision and post to you as soon as possible. Thank you again. Dan

Okay...

@Fat Tails

I think this version will do for that revision.

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


However, I do have the code directly from the author for the updated version from the 2008 TASC article. It seems as though that is "best" as it includes, I believe, some additional filters. I did have that version with and added cycle period option on another platform. I have that code as well if that is useful.

@Big Mike

Is it okay to post the original article here in the forums along with the correspondence with the author Sylvain Vervoort or is that best handled in a private manner?

When we do isolate a version for Fat Tails to revise, how do I ship that to him?

Thanks everyone. Dan

@wldman:

The current indicator does not allow you to do that.

I have recently coded a modified version of the Bollinger Universal, and I could quickly add the same features to the Keltner Universal. Before I do that could you please check that the Bollinger Universal as attached suits your need?

Also I remember that I had promised to code something for you a couple of days ago, but I cannot remember what it was....

@Fat Tails

The Bollinger Universal is fine. I just wanted to be able to hide the the centerline of the anaKeltnerUniversal so as not to distract from the Bollinger inner and outer bands.

If I was trading today...

and I am NOT. I'd be sold here at 73, first target 60, risk 80. I know that might seem weak for a gunslinger, but it is what I see. Leary of the yet to cross the zero line acci, but risk is well below that looming 200 period MA and we are in a demonstrable down channel since 1 am. So if I was active today I'd be sucked in to a short here and probably hate it. DB

OMG!..

delayed response to Lagarde...or what? I have no idea. But, I saw that decay begin as I was typing and thought to keep it real and make the post I had started typing. Integrity is a big deal to me. That would have sucked! Happy to be wrong when it does not kill me and humbled at the reminder that I sometimes get killed just for playing. Dang, did not see that coming.

@wldman:

Hi Dan,

no problem, I am a subscriber to TASC and I know the modified Heikin-Ashi version coded by Sylvain Vervoort. No need to post the article here, as you would run into copyright issues.

Code published by Sylvain Vervoort (TASC issues May 2008 & July 2012) converted to NinjaTrader

 
Code
haOpen.Set(((Open[1] + High[1] + Low[1] + Close[1]) / 4 + haOpen[1]) / 2);
haHigh = Math.Max(High[0], haOpen[0]);
haLow = Math.Min(Low[0], haOpen[0]);
haClose.Set((Open[0] + High[0] + Low[0] + Close[0]) / 4+ haO[0] + Math.Max(High[0], haO[0]) + Math.Min(Low[0], haO[0])) / 4);

The code for HeikenAshi open, high and low is identical with the traditional formula, however the close is smoothed
a bit. The charts below show a comparison of the two Heikin Ashi styles.

I will post new versions of Universal Bollinger, Universal Keltner, HeikinAshi and your paint bar indicator later today.

However, I do not have your cycle indicator, if you wish me to include that with your paint bars.

Hey wldman,

Glad to see you back. Our trading methods are different, but I enjoy reading your thread. I was wondering if you look at other TF charts and then narrow your entries on the chart posted? This was my view had I been watching the 6E market. I was practicing on CL today, cuz I expected another dismal boring 6E & ES markets. Lesson learned, don't expect anything. Looking at the 60 min, trading was still in that b/o area from 06/29 and normally when price b/o on one end and then the other it will b/o thru the first attempt which was higher. And looking at the 5 min we traded above the IBH and then retraced to the IBH and there is where I would have bought @ around 1.2584.

Now, I have no where near the experience as you do, but wanted to share what I saw. I hope you had a great vacation in Colorado. I am golfing every weekend with a retired insurance executive who also has a house in Colorado. He was telling me about some of the courses out there near or on the mountains and how beautiful they are. I'm sure I will be out there soon.

Cheers,
Ryan

Heiken Ashi..


@Fat Tails

that would color a standard bar or candle would be a great help. Right now that is all that I am looking for as far as modifications to the existing code. Maybe down the road one HA indicator would be better than the other based on other functionality of a specific version. Is the screen shot that I've already posted showing which indicator, along with the chart view that you can see in my posts adequate enough for you to discern the best way to help? Please let me know what I can do. Dan
