Sorry..

forgot arrows.

Notice that on some charts the reversal bar is not painted (yellow or blue). My first guess is the order in which the indi is applied. If anyone can help with that I'd appreciate it.

fsAuctionBarsMTF

This is a subscription indicator leased from the incomprable @Fat Tails.

My application does not do the thing justice as my capacity hallucination (like that one) is like that of a child compared to Harry's creative interpretation and display. I LOVE AB as my little colaborative group calls it.

I can talk about my charts and my application but I do not think it is fair to Harry to post "user mannual" type info received from him. BTW Harry, I crave info of that type from you like a lion craves the gazelle. Let me thank you again for your massive contribution to me and futures.io (formerly BMT).

Harry I have saved as default my view of auction bars. Since that does not really do it justice I invite you to please post the fully utilized and intended design here in this journal thread so that my tiny application does not detract from your grander view.

There are a number of bar types identified and used in the application. The only one of those visable on my chart is the actual "reversal" bars. They are colored yellow with a "R" for reversal above or blue with a "R" below.

Then the golden colored range levels are drawn from the actual auction bars from the selected timeframe...on my charts hourly. So that range between the gold horizontal lines represents the true range of the last hourly auction bar. Harry can talk about the formula for how that is done if he wants.


@wldman: It would be against the forum rules, if I use this thread to discuss a commercial version of one of my indicators. Anybody who wishes to know further details should contact me via private message.

What I was..

hoping for @Big Mike is that @Fat Tails could describe his indicator in the context of the intended use for which it was designed rather than have me misrepresent it based on my specific hallucination. This way futures.io (formerly BMT) members get better, more accurate and arguably more interesting information.

I could, but out of respect for Harry, defer posting information about his work that was communicated privately to me in response to specific and general questions. Now, I can't judge if Harry want's to comment about this or the "fs series" of indicators or if he would if asked, but certainly this is NOT against the spirit of the vendor restrictions, is it?

I'm not going to press this with either of you...you are both too valuable to me. Mike, what can and can not be shared by Harry on this? Harry, no worries if you'd pass on the discussion anyway. I was hoping that I could mine your tremendously rich comments for my own benefit as well. You and your work resonate beautifully with me and like any great symphony, you want others to hear and understand the same beauty that you see in it.

Be well guys, and do well.

Dan

A couple guys...

had asked (I think) about a specific set up that sometimes shows up in the journal. A few posts back I asked if I was responding correctly in a valuable way. Since I don't need typing or posting practice, I'll mostly post when someone asks something or when I'm looking for perspective. That said, here is todays "example, thus far of the volume divergence S/R set up with trend. There are usually a bunch...like 5 or 6 items that line up. Very rarely does this get stopped out or reversed for a loss. Is that the example you where thinking of?

Someone asked...

Is the same confluence present on some long side possibilities? Yes, but generally I like this less as a "reversal"...at least I leke to see more evidence in contra trend entries.

Yes...

did NOT trade this...didn't even see it actually. The framework is the same, though the context and the confluence are a little different in ES and other time/tick frames...but this was a pretty good set up. Typing to stay flat in front of numba, too!

@wldman, I really like the divergence setups on the KVO. Do you know of any divergence indies that would work with the KVO? Thanks.

@Sk8ter,

the pas pro is always a good option for divergences
