  1. Session 31 and Split Profiles

    Also now done for next release. When you select a Time Per Profile of "3 Sessions", the color control in upper right corner turns into a 2-color control, allowing you to specify color for overnight and day session profiles now. Chad
  2. Session 31 and Split Profiles

    Yes, that can be done. Here is a chart you can import that demonstrates this: Images | ChartHub.com I've added the Profile Indicator twice to the chart (added it once, setup like I wanted, then right-clicked on dotted line around rightmost profile and "duplicated"). Each one is setup as explained at the bottom of this page: Investor/RT - Answers (LinnSoft.com) with a duration of "3 Session" to achieve the split session. In the 2nd instance of the Profile Indicator, I chose a different color and also checked "2nd Session Only" so that one skips the drawing of the first (overnight 1020 min) session. Have to make sure the 2nd session only profile is drawn in front of the other one in the drawing order. Hope this helps. Chad
  3. HLC Custom Bar for VSA

    In this char: Images | ChartHub.com I've drawn the bars with a style of "High Low Bars". I added a Moving Average indicator setup with a 1 period smoothing of close to give me the close dot. I simply drew the MA as a continuous line, but adjusted the color control to give me a style of "dotted" and a width of 5, resulting in 5 pixel diameter dots on the close. I added paintbars for taller bars, orange for 1 std dev and yellow for 2 std dev. I used a period of 100 for these. I painted the other bars gray but you could paint them red and green based on up or down if you wish. Just change the up/down candle colors for the instrument. Let me know if you have anything more you want to add to this or if you have any problem with it. Can import from the page linked above. Chad
  4. IRT Features

    Yes. As long as you can export the data to a text file or csv file, you can import it into Investor/RT. That includes tick data, daily data, monthly data, etc. You can even schedule periodic imports of data from specific files if needed. To import data, choose "file: import: data". Once import window appears, hit the F1 key for help on importing. Chad

  11. Cumulative Delta Studies

    I have create a web page where I will be posting all Cumulative Delta information. I've recently added videos which show how to add Trendlines, Zig Zag, or apply any other indicator to the Cumulative Delta Bars, just as you would the price bars. www.linnsoft.com/cumdelta Chad
  12. Need Tick Volume Data ...any Ideas

    I added two new options to the Volume Breakdown indicator in Investor/RT 10.3.5, giving the user the ability to accumulate the number of bid/ask changes or price changes within each bar, and further the ability to accumulate those for entire session or chart. Here is a chart (with definition) showing the per-bar bid/ask changes in the middle pane, and the accumulated bid/ask changes for the day session in the lower pane. According to chart, there were 2091 bid/ask changes during day session on Friday compared w/ 2697 on Thursday. By comparison (not shown) there were 14,875 price changes on Friday.
