So...

What do we know about volume? Today is coasting at about 20%-25% of typical volume. Volume drives price. Sell volume tends to be capitulation...meaning that sell is a cumulative decision, where buy is more steady and incremental.

What does that mean?

Help with chart setup


@wldman, I've been trying to duplicate your chart setup but can't seem to get the scaling right on the Adaptive CCI and the RSqueeze. I know that you have them overlaid on the same panel but I just can't get the RSqueeze to plot correctly between 200 and -200. I have to set the scale properties for the Adaptive and it seems to plot correctly but I just can't get the RSqueeze to work. Do you have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong, or failing that do you think you could post your template? Thanks for all your help.

Put the Rqueeze to "Overlay" in the scale justification of the indicator

Adaptive Period Label

@wldman,

Hope you caught that walleye . . .

I am wondering if you or one of your followers could help me move or remove the "Adaptive Period 13" Label to the left side of the frame (Preferably to the Top Left or if not the Bottom Left) . . . See attached pic . . . the reason for the move is that the Label covers the Left Side RSqueeze "Dots" when I have several charts on the same page . . .

I opened the indicator script and it all looks Greek to me ? ? ? . . . if someone could direct me to the proper line(s) of script and some edit instructions, I am willing to attempt the edit . . .

Thx, rickr

@perryg, I have already tried to "overlay" RSqueeze in the scale justification - see chart on the left with screen capture of properties setting. I have tried it the other way too - ie. Adaptive CCI with "overlay", and it didn't work.

I have since figured out how to do this from the Ninja support forum though - "to plot two Indicators on one panel and have it auto fit one but ignore the scaling of the other: Select the Data Series by left clicking it -> Right click it -> Properties -> Locate Auto Scale -> Set to False". I tried this and it worked.

The problem seems to be because the main scale in the earlier left hand chart has been set to 'Fixed' and not left on 'Automatic'. Clicking in the [F] box would undo that and allow the Overlay to work. They usually work well unless more than one overlay is needed, in which case the actual scale numbers become a factor and you're left with 'Left'...

Travel Well

Okay...

Water is still too cold to get walleye from the shore...that or I suck at fishing.

@alejo

So I get to the desk this am and the first think I think about is volume. So based on my preperation metric, volume is the first measure that I need to respond to...then trend. Once I've determined how I feel about volume and trend I want to know what happened last night and during the rollover to Europe. Then I want to asses what or who is on the speaker schedule for the day.

That primary basis is usually established in one to three minutes.

volume:

That is sort of a brief of the daily prep routine. in real time the first review to identify what needs deeper attention takes about 3 minutes. Since it took a great deal longer to create this post during key trading time, I will not do this or daily or post regularly during this time.

Lots of mixed...

indications to review here. I'll try to post the items.

Divergence on my short term chart:

Usually that would be enough or close to enough for me to sell a little bit...one

So, in the context..


of the longer term chart, I have a conflict. I have to decide...do nothing, hold to my slight short bias and sell something, or defer to the longer term chart and wait. If anyone is looking I wonder what you'd do?
