I was thinking of the same solver "Dorschden Swing Trend" from your link. I don't know if there is a percentage option for the leg within the range, but I'll let you know what I find. I'll get back to you in a couple days.

I asked your question @trendisyourfriend in last Thursday's workshop, and he said it was too vague. He said when you try to program your strategies into bloodhound you have to be more precise in your descriptions.

He was pointing out that signaling a higher swing low and a higher swing high sounds like some form of wave analysis which can be very subjective.

He recommended a video to get accustomed to working with swings:
Identifying Swings High / Low Expansion and Contraction



And about measuring the leg within the high / low swings, he said that bloodhound doesn't necessarily measure things, but uses more of a max or min values.

He was wondering if you can send some screen shots to give us a visual of what you are looking for.

Hi hen322,

Thank you for your journlal and videos. I am also learning to program with Shark indicators. Programming with shark indicators is relatively easy, but it does take a bit of time to get the hang of it. And although I now have quite some basic knowledge about programming with it, I still learned some of your videos. So please keep on making them.

Shark indicators videos can indeed be better and shorter, which is why I advise you never to watch Trade The Plan videos (Daniel Roe). He uses (programmed) Shark indicators in an interesting way but his videos are horrible (and usually very long, way too long).

Finally, a general tip: there are media players (such licke VLC) with which you can play video clips faster (including the streaming ones). It saves time !!!

Keep up the good work.

Hello han322

Do you know if the code generated by Bloodhound indicator is something a programmer can view and change later as per his needs?
I know software programmming however the process is very long and time consuming. I am simply trying to figure out if for people that know programming this tool is also useful?

programming with bloodhound is for the most part like programming with predefined software blocks (by means of mouse clicks so it is not real programming) and to my knowledge you have no access to the underlying deeper software.

I remember someone asking this question during a webinar. The answer is no. You are not able to view the code. I know what you are talking about, and they don't allow that.

Did you give up on BH @hen322?

Not sure if you watched their last webinar with new changes coming? They look like they will be user-friendly revisions.

They have a discord channel now also if you weren't aware and interested.

I hope to someday take you up on helping me with a BH project.
