We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I have the new V2 and I do see the further modification to include anasqueeze. Is there also increased efficiency in this version that warrants another try at adding the multiplier language?

Dan

I added your PBF mutiplier code to the latest V2 of the RSqueeze in this custom version for your use... this should work without any code modification required on your part.

RSqueezeV2mult.cs

Thank you so much...

@trendwaves

I was going to work on that today. As a non fluent C# guy I really appreciate your willingness to save me the time of trying to repeat that process. I do believe that I got lucky the first time. Thank you also for the initial effort to work up the Rsqueeze and make it better. It goes without saying, but I owe you. Dan

I guess...


the simplest, most basic nuance to point out is red, red, red and green, green, green. That is NOT to say that I'd recommend risk exposure on that simple premise alone, rather that when this condition is present some generalizations can be made.

I do have a copy of the users manual for the first iteration of PBF squeeze. However this current version is quite different in design...different enough that creating my own guide based on my application might better serve the purpose of trade documentation. I do think that www.paintbarfactory.com has some interesting ideas and worthwhile products available. I am not associated with them in any way and I do think the marketing might be a little over the top, but the format of a bar color change and a dot/histo zero line is, imo a great way to organize visual information. While I can not hold hands or teach traders, I bet they can.

r,r,r or g,g,g or the trend trade is something that I use mostly as a re-entry trade or when I have a nice lead, this is when I really press the winners. The counter trend or reversal trade generally looks for divergence between the histogram and price. The third of the basic three set ups from this requires the next piece, the adaptive cci. In this set up I look for the acci to enter the 100 level from the 200 level...I view that as exiting the oversold or overbought condition.

As always, the first example will come from the current right edge...wldman does not cherry pick.

The adaptive cci..

is the result of input from a bunch of guys. Direction, color and the level all are important considerations for me. Attached is an article that I believe is critical to understanding and implementation of a cycle period adjusted cci.

The a_cci version that I use...

If there is a better, more efficient way to include indicator files please let me know.

uploading indicators

It's probably easiest to upload it to the file uploads area and post a link that here. You can write a little description there and also provide a link to the original indicator where it came from.

Export the indicator first from Ninja via the File -> Utilities -> Export menu. This creates a zip file which you can import easily into Ninja via the File -> Utilities -> Import

You can always put the zip file here instead if you don't want to create an upload entry for it.

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.

Do not have a lot..

of time most days during the trading week. But there are the two main entries for the day 6E. Real happy that when I commit to post I've been omitting most of the bad decisions...but they will come. Updating my view thanks to @trendwaves There are a couple more visual reference points to add to display, then outline of trade types. Funny the guy whose question prompted this has not visited.

Yes...

a number of trades taken between the major swings shown. But those finer decision points include items not yet addressed, so i thought to leave that out for now. DB

Just noticed...

that a thing that looks like a thing we never talk about pegged the "turn" to the minute.

IDK if we ever entertain that discussion or just leave well enough alone.

Someone asked about...


Heiken Ashi.
@Nientenickgrazie

I view the indicator to show trend persistence, meaning same color usually means same price direction. Where the color changes can especially if in confluence with other non-colinear items signify that price may reverse. There are a couple examples from today.

On the 610 tick:

and the very short 144 tick:

So I would say the way to go is determine a metric based on market condition and a confluence of non-colinear indicators, one of which might be a color change on the HACO. I hope that clarifies and makes some sense for you.
