TICK Coding Help

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I would like to receive some help coding a paintbar tool for TS for this strategy here: http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f34/tick-hooks-tick-candles-1662.html#post9884

 

Im interested in an automatic line that can plot the opening 90 minute high/low for the TICK. I would also like somekind of visual way to see when the TICK reach this opening 90min high/low and make a TICK hook. I have both a candlestick and line on close plotted on the same chart.

 

Any help would be appreciated :)

I can help you out with the first one, where it plots a high and low for the first 90 minutes.

 

You'll have to adjust the start and end time as I'm based in England so start is 14:30 here. Also, if your using $TICK like your picture on the other thread, just format indicator and "base study on" data2.

 

Hope this helps

Who want it for trading send a donation of 125$ to my PayPal account under deltatrader@bluewin.ch together with your Tradestation CustomerID and you'll get the protected code without any expiration date.

 

-swisstrader

 

Do a little research on the TS forums and you'll be able to find this eld or be able to piece it together. Looks like swisstrader is taking a page from TTM and taking eld's from the TS forums and try to sell them.

trader273, before you write this you should research better!

I ever offer my own written code. And the FTP's on the current OR was my own idea in 2004!

 

 

I am no longer a TS client so I cant get to the forums. But to say that a pivot eld combined w/ an opening range eld is something special that someone should pay $125 or whatever you want is crazy. There are dozens of pivot elds (hell, even a couple on this site) and there are a bunch of open range indicators. This idea is far from original.

Re: Nickm001 mod

 

When I use this - it only works for Regular Session and not my custom defined sessions... Am I doing something wrong here? I'd like it to post the x-minute range for any custom szession I have defined starting from the (csutom) session's 1st bar...

Code is for regular session. Lines that needs to be changed is:

 

from ... "EndTime( CalcTime(SessionStartTime(1,1),EndTimeOffset))" to

 

EndTime( CalcTime(SessionStartTime(0,1),EndTimeOffset))

 

 

same for ... If time > EndTIme and time < SessionEndTIme(0,1) then

 

 

Here is the copy from TS guide that explains the difference...

____________________________________________

 

Usage

SessionStartTime(SessionType,SessionNum)

 

Parameters

SessionType

A numeric value. 0 = Auto Detect, 1 = Regular Session

 

SessionNum

A numeric value. Session Number to Reference

EDIT:

 

Ignore previous post... Just modify the following lines..

 

inputs:

StartTime( SessionStartTime(0,1)),

EndTime( CalcTime(SessionStartTime(0,1),90)),

 

 

I was looking at different version of my code, not the code I posted in here.

 

Note to admin: For some reason I cannot edit my previous post

I have added size and style option to this nice indicator

 

inputs: 
//	StartTime( 	0900	), 
//	EndTime( 	1030	),
StartTime( SessionStartTime(1,1)), 
EndTime( CalcTime(SessionStartTime(1,1),90)), 
HL.Size( 	1 	),
HL.Style( 	2 	),	
HighColor( green),  
LowColor( red) ; 

variables: 
HavePrevLines( false ),  
TLHigh( 0 ),  
TLLow( 0 ), 
	PeriodHigh( 0 ),  
PeriodLow( 999999 ) ; 

if BarType <= 1 then { ie, if minute or tick bars } 
begin 
//	if Date <> Date[1] then { ie, if new day } 	
if CurrentSession(0) <> CurrentSession(0)[1] then { ie, if new session } 
	begin 

	{ truncate the previous lines if they exist } 
	if HavePrevLines then 
		begin 
		TL_SetEnd( TLHigh, Date[1], Time[1], PeriodHigh ) ; 
		TL_SetEnd( TLLow, Date[1], Time[1], PeriodLow ) ; 
		TL_SetExtRight( TLHigh, false ) ; 
		TL_SetExtRight( TLLow, false ) ; 
		end ; 

	{ re-initialize PeriodHigh,PeriodLow for the new day } 
	PeriodHigh = 0 ; 
	PeriodLow = 999999 ; 

	{ insert the new H,L lines and set their colors/extents } 
	TLHigh = TL_New( Date, Time, PeriodHigh, Date, Time, PeriodHigh ) ; 
	TLLow = TL_New( Date, Time, PeriodLow, Date, Time, PeriodLow ) ; 
	TL_SetColor( TLHigh, HighColor ) ; 
	TL_SetColor( TLLow, LowColor ) ; 
	TL_SetSize(  TLHigh  , HL.Size	);
	TL_SetSize(  TLLow	, HL.Size	);				
	TL_SetStyle(  TLHigh , HL.Style	);
	TL_SetStyle(  TLLow  , HL.Style	);		

	TL_SetExtLeft( TLHigh, false ) ; 
	TL_SetExtLeft( TLLow,false ) ; 
	TL_SetExtRight( TLHigh, true ) ; 
	TL_SetExtRight( TLLow, true ) ; 

	{ set flag } 
	if HavePrevLines = false then 
		HavePrevLines = true ; 
	end ; 

if HavePrevLines = true then 
	begin 
	if StartTime <= Time and Time <= EndTime then  
		begin 
		if High > PeriodHigh then 
			begin 
			PeriodHigh = High ; 
			{ MUST reset TL end before resetting TL beginning in this case; if order  
			  reversed, begin will first be reset to right side of end, and become the  
			  new end; this will then again be reset by the subsequent statement; the  
			  original begin will not be reset at all. } 
			TL_SetEnd( TLHigh, Date, Time, PeriodHigh ) ; 
			TL_SetBegin( TLHigh, Date, Time, PeriodHigh ) ; 
			end ; 
		if Low < PeriodLow then 
			begin 
			PeriodLow = Low ; 
			{ MUST reset TL end before resetting TL beginning in this case; see  
			  above. } 
			TL_SetEnd( TLLow, Date, Time, PeriodLow ) ; 
			TL_SetBegin( TLLow, Date, Time, PeriodLow ) ; 
			end ;

DAX & FTSE 100 futures up 0.15% & 0.25% respectively. Inflation risks remained in focus as oil prices continue to climb higher while bottlenecks in supply chains lead to rising cost pressures. The combination already weighed on manufacturing PMIs last week & are likely to also depress the German Ifo confidence reading today ahead of Thursday’s ECB meeting. Fed Chair Powell signalled on Friday that inflation could stay higher for longer & that the taper is coming. ECB by contrast has pushed decisions on PEPP & APP back to the December meeting, which means this week’s ECB will be watched mainly for signals from Lagarde at the press conference.

European Open The December 10-year Bund future is down -16 ticks, US futures are also in the red. DAX and FTSE 100 futures are both down -0.45 and US futures are also in the red, with the NASDAQ underperforming again, after already closing slightly lower yesterday. Indices remain at high levels, but tapering concerns, the global energy rout and supply chain concerns are capping the outlook for global growth. Markets will continue to watch earnings reports and central bank comments, especially in the UK where officials clearly are laying the ground for an early lift off. Meanwhile the announcement of Weidmann’s departure has raised hopes that the ECB will push even more to circumvent the no-bailout clause permanently – after the end of PEPP, which already helped BTPs to outperform yesterday.
