  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.

Tried again...

past my maximum. I'll try more next week. If anyone wants to describe how to make a copy of anaKVO and call it something else and have that copy compile without jacking with anaKVO that would be freakin grand.

The I can try to make the changs....I'll get it eventually...lol

Good weekend to all.

The problem is not created by dbKVO but by another file called wldmnV1.cs.

You need to delete that other file wldmnV1.cs (which may be a copy of anaKVO).

Dan,

I had some free time this afternoon and haven't 'given back' as much recently, so it's about time I did.

It's called WizSmoothedKVO (exact copy of anaSmoothedKVO with KVO / Signal line coloring options added) and permits the coloring of the KVO line and/or the SIGNAL line. Let me know of any problems or additional enhancements needed.

Attached is a pic of the CL for the past few days. The original anaSmoothedKVO is in panel 4 and the WizSmoothedKVO is in panel 5.

...And, as always, a big thank you to @Fat Tails for another great contribution to BigMikes !!

That is perfect...

@TheWizard

Thanks a million man. My emotional state is on the upswing. It is really humbling the ease with which some guys can do stuff that is very challenging for me. I will deconstruct that script and try to get a handle on how you did that so that I can maybe be a little more self sufficient.

Dan,

The first thing I did was come up with a name "WizSmoothedKVO"
The next thing was to use the editor to Create New Ninjascript / Indicator
I called it WizSmoothedKVO and hit enter a bunch of times, forcing the editor to more or less create a shell of an indicator with the name I wanted.
The next thing was to use the editor to Edit Ninjascript / Indicator and scrolled down to Fat Tails anaSmoothedKVO
Once the editor opened up anaSmoothedKVO, I selected ALL and hit COPY.
Then I went back to my WizSmoothed KVO and selected ALL and hit PASTE (thus copying Fat Tails code into my 'shell')
Then I closed anaSmoothedKVO indicator and went back to my WizSmoothedKVO 'copy' and I clicked on "anaSmoothedKVO" and did a FIND and replaced all instances of "anaSmoothedKVO" with "WizSmoothedKVO"

There. Now I've got all his code inside my Wiz shell and all references to "anaSmoothedKvo" have been replaced by "WizSmoothedKVO"!

Then it was just a matter of adding the code to color the lines.

I've marked all the sections I added with "// This section added by The Wizard May 9, 2014", so they'll be easy for you to find.

Kinda of a round-about way of getting the job done, but it's worked well for me over the years, and it avoids those nasty "namespace" error messages you get by trying to copying & directly modify the original indicator. And it's a safe way of achieving what you set out to do. If you get any errors, you can always go into the Indicator library, find "WizSmoothedKVO" and hit DELETE, and start all over. That way, you've preserved the original creators code and you've only monkeyed with your own code.

how we think chapter 5 choking the thoughts

this chapter talk about the opposite of rational thinking, too much rational can become bad

when i do something, and i a have a doubt about my execution, i wil try to think in how executed, while i executed, then, this is a trap.I believe it is better but most of the time not, (example: golf īs swing , operaīs singer,)
why?
when i think, i hesitate, i get bad result
when i trust in my execution, i get good result
if i think too much, i cause some paralysis of the correct execution
if i get nervous, i try to think more to control that, to avoid mistakes, but...if i made the task while thinking the result it will be bad
if i mae the task in auto pilot the result will be good
(the key is to train to let me do in autopilot the task)

there s a difference between a beginer and an expert:
1)beginer: if i am not think, i execute bad
if i think , i can execute better

2)expert if i do not think i execute well
if i think i execute worse

the choking process is a down spiral, i think more and i do worse, think more, and i do worse and worse, more stresful, more think, more worse execution
(i remember this when i overtrading to trying to recup..and finsih worse..)

golf player , muscle trained, but if think, the mucles worked worse

"it is dangerous to trust exclusively in the prefrontal cortex(rational)"
"if you ignore the wisdom inside emotions, bad results"

if i have 2 options: 1 feels the best and 2 sounds the best (the second could be wrong)

(for me this is a contradiction with the control the emotions /impulses )

as the prefrontral cortex get overhelmed, it is easy to pass from a rational decisions to irrationals decisions

the brain is unable to filter the useless
the brain take everything in consideration although they be absurd
the prefrontal cortex is fragile because 1)the anchor process, 2)pay atention to everything,3)limited capacity

"it is import to be careful, to not pay attention to unnecesary things"

too much info creates poor attention
to much info interfere with understanding

if prefrontal cortex is iverhelmed, then , i can not see the situation

correlation is different of causation, and the people ve theories where only there s coincidences

the addiction to the info is hard to break

with more info we think worse

the better is focus on key variables

in a rational way we think is better to have more info, but not

smart people make foolish decisions if we give them irrelevant info

the prefrontal cortex use , reason, emotions, info, time to make the decisions, but be careful with:
-think too much
-paralisis
-not have selftrust
-too much complex task
-too much info

if i think in something to make a decision, and i do not know explain why i decide a thing, then i will choose what i can explain

it is easier to choose measurables things than futures emotions

placebo effect:

it is powerful, it will occur that i will expect
precortex, when i activate expectation, it will inhibit feelings, turn it off, pain, or signs

i wait something, activate the expectation, then our behavior change
if i expect that expensive things are better than cheaper ones, i believe in that, it will occur
if i taste two wines of $5 and $45 , i have my expectations, and i conclude $45 is better (altough they are the same)


rational brain distort the reality

i lost the skill to evaluate alternatives and the reality

we reach our falses assumptions
we do not hear other options

and other thing we can lost is the self control
if the prefrontal cortes is overhelmed by brain effort, low sugar, hungry, tired, our behavior start to become more impulsive

La lucha es de igual a igual contra uno mismo
The fight is fair against oneself

Okay...


KVO has earned a piece of screen real estate.

Huge thanks to @Fat Tails and @TheWizard for their contributions. I continue to learn from the gifts of others every day and I really appreciate the contribution of others.

I approached this KVO from every direction that I could think of. The only possible revision on the current horizon would be to create or add a paint bar option that would color bars based on the 13 ema signal line. I find Klinger's original ideas to be valid and interesting.

Also, many thanks to @Zondor for his elegant and smart revisions to the adaptive CCI that I rely on quite often.
