hi TheRumpledOne i'm looking to be able to have this pivots up in radar screen but being a newbie in easy language is very difficult could you help me out? thank you very much, regards, binthere here's the code: [LegacyColorValue = true]; {4/28/05. DeanVan @ TS} {Thanks to eKam for use of roundInst and other pivot types I got from ChiasmLevels} {based on intraday data (is sometimes a little different than daily data, so won't match exact)} {idea is that it will change each day @ "NewDayTM", to reflect the next days numbers.} {..check the open/close values to verify the day it's showing.

Randall, this is exactly what i needed for my strat thank you for helping out the strugling newbies !!! :applaud: regards, binthere

Randall, this is HUGE!!!! thanks for your help!, i've been strugling for over a week to get to the code i had posted earlier... and to get to the code you did it would have taken me a gazillion years in a very frustrating journey. i can't thank you enough for your help cheers,, keep it spinning! binthere

Randall well this is the first time i actually code a strategy and have no prior developing experience, i've been strugling to make this hapen if you could help me out coding it would greatly appreciate it!! every word i've used in the above code has taken me for ever to understand it and try to implement it cheers!!, binthere

thank's for the response, i'm trying to do this baby steps, first making the strategy stop trading when a specific number of winners or loosers is hit but it seems it's not working could someone look at the code and help me out to understand what i'm doing wrong? thanks, binthere

hi guys, using tradestation 8.8 I'm looking for a way to have my strategy stop trading for "x" amount of minutes after "y" number of winning trades or "z" number of loosing trades thanks for your help!! binthere

MMS your set up sound good!!, i'll end up doing something similar mantaining TS and moving the bulk of volume elsewhere, thank you for sharing! spoke today with the TS guys.... in short if we want to use the TS platform the only BD to which they route trades is to rjobrien thanks, binthere

tks for the info, i'll findout details and post in the forum regards, binthere

hi guys does anyone know if there is a whay to use tradestation and the platform clear thru infinity futures or other broker? i'm getting excellent pricing for emini's with infinity but want to keep my tradestation platform and strategies any ideas? thank you, binthere

in my experience the grail is the best for optimizing, tradestation for forward testing The Grail regards, binthere ps:the grail was recently acquired by tradestation and they will incorporate it in version 9

MadMarket Scientist, i'm a newbie, sorry for the missing info im using tradestation 8.8 (6037) thank you!

hi guys when running a strategy i've been strugling to find a way to display the day (not accrued) closed profit/loss & open profit/loss in real time and not having to go to the trade manager does anyone know how to do this? thank you!!!! binthere

hi guys, i'm a newbie with TS, and would like to be able to automatically have my charts with a vertical line marking reversal periods 10, 10:30, 11, 1pm, 2, 2:30 & 3pm does anyne know how can i ahve this done? thank you!! binthere

zapisy ya r the man! thank you, works great binthere

thank you Tam that is the coed i'm using, ill try to see if ts can help me, regards, binthere

Tam, thank you for the code, i just pasted it into a new indicateor in easy language and it doesnt plot in my chart (it does verify!!) using ts 8.8 do you have any idea what i;m doing wrong?? thank you man binthere

hi Tams this looks good, but how do i place it in my tradestation chart?? thank you for your help binthere

zapisy, thank you for the eld! looks very good what i'm really looking for is a whay to place a small window in my charts that would express the up  down valume ratio please look at the screen shot i posted thanks again for your help! binthere

Hi guys, attached a screen shot of my thinkorswim, as you can see in the upper left corner i have a box thar reads the NYSE uvol ratio and the NASD uvol ratio i find it very usefull to have them expresed as a ratio and displayed in the graph!! thank you screen shot.pdf

hi guys, i'm a newbie in TS and cant find a way to have the $UVOLvs$DVOL ratio i sued to have it in mt thinkorswim charts and it was very usefull the code in thinkorswim is: # TS_AdvanceDeclineBox # thinkscripter@gmail.com # Last Update 03 JAN 2010 def UV = close("$UVOL"); def DV = close ("$DVOL"); def ADL = UV  DV; def ADR = if UV > DV then UV / DV else DV / UV; input mode = {default Ratio, Issues}; def modeSwitch = if mode == mode.Ratio then 1 else 0; AddChartLabel(yes, concat( if modeSwitch then ADR else ADL, concat(" ", if modeSwitch then ":1 NYSE UV/DV" else " NYSE UV/DV")), if modeSwitch then if ADR > ADR[1] then color.green else color.red else if ADL > ADL[1] then color.green else color.red); plot null = double.nan; anyone out there coudl help me out??? thanks!,
