you have your browser refuses to download zip file I bet, anyway here they are.

Hoping anyone can assist.
I also get "file doesn't contain any Ninja Script" whether I download the zip that you posted or direct from the ELocal blog site.

I am able to download other zip files : ie the DPLDot that was kindly posted here.

Also, your post#18 says the EL zip contains the GomCD package, and then your post#26 say they are NT Buy/sell indicators.
??

I already have the GomCD but can't get it to display as per ELocal.
I already also have the 3 Buy/Sell NT indi's you posted but they do not display asper ELocal.

Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong?
thx..

Thx for the reply.

I have data (yes real time in sense you need to be connected to NT because there is no "back fill")
I meant the way the NT indicators are plotting..see attached (green and red Buy/sell indi).
I've also attached a GomCD equivalent (it's close to Elocal's but it's not plotting correctly at the zero line)

Also, as I said, I'm not sure why the Elocal zip is empty when I download it?
These are running with NT and Zen fire data.
Can any one post a chart if they have downloaded the Elocal zip ?

Thx

I feel your pain it's hard to function in the electronic age, ok here is what going on, the zip file is not ninja zip it is just a reg zip file, that is why ninja says it's empty, inside it there are gom ninja zip and buy/sell vol ninja zip, with me so far? so unzip it into 2 zip files using your regular zip software then ninja import as usual.

Fortunately the Electronic Local indicators include the GOMCD package, and that includes an indicator that shows the delta and the total volume for each bar.

But EL also includes the two-year old Ninjatrader buy sell volume indicators, which can easily be, but have not been, integrated to work with GOMCD to give persistable data.... Until I did it a few weeks ago.

So if anyone would like me to post the Buy Sell Volume Total GCD, which DOES refresh historical data and DOES NOT go blank every time you touch the chart, please let me know! It cam easily be tweaked to display the data in all the other various ways that the BBSV Ninja indicators do.

Also suggest that anyone reading this thread look at the threads about trading price and volume, because we are on the same page as Electronic Local -- watching the ORDER FLOW.

Cory, thx, yes I'm with you now, although I wouldn't have got there alone, thx.
Personally data mining takes on a whole new meaning.

Hopefully the GOMCD will display correctly?
The snapshot I attached before shows a problem of over shooting the zero line.

I couldn't get the NT B/S Vol indi's
to display as a histogram in the same way as ELocal.

.. you don't have to ask.
Excellent Zondor, please yes, post them.
You'll turn my alexia into elixir of GOM.

What initially felt like a road less travelled, turns out to be full of excellent company.
Really appreciate the replies and look forward to the GOM with persistance.
All hail Zondor.

The answer is: Yes, please!

I will gladly welcome the Buy Sell Volume Total and the DOM_Bands with Gomi Recorder implemented. Can you also confirm they are NT7 compatible?

BuySellVolumeTotalGCD

I will post this in the VIP Section soon. It will work for 6.5 or7.0.

The DOM Recorder Indicator will have to wait a while. This will be a much more ambitious project.

Zondor,

Have a look at this BidAskHistVolume indicator here, which I have been using for sometime now. It paints the Total/History volume color on a Volume Up/Down basis, in addition to plotting/painting the Buy and Sell volume.

For example, if the Buy volume is greater than the Sell volume (in this case, the Buy volume color will overwhelm the Sell volume color), the Total/History volume - Up, must be showing the Volume Up color in order to have a perfect sync with the Buy volume. If this sync is not conformed to, then there is a distortion in price movement/action (this has been my personal observation).

Your BuySellVolumeTotalGCD paints the Total volume in just one color of one's choice. If you can add the feature of plotting/painting the Total volume based on Up/Down basis, this may give a little additional information in trading/decision-making.

Lolu

Different colors for Up or Down Total Volume on BSVTgcd


Lolu, you make a good point. Now, on the BuySellVolumeTotalGCD you can only tell whether the total volume is net up or down based on whether the buy volume or the sell volume is larger.

It's easy to add the feature you asked for. I will do that within the next few days.
