Custom Scalper Buy/Sell

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I'm new to this forum but I thought I'd try to make a small contribution while I can. What I'm including here (if my upload goes as planned) is my current best effort at the TTM Scalper Buy/Sell -- the indicator that paints a white bar on the recent high or low, 3 bars after it happens.

 

In my analysis, 95%+ of the bars that get painted appear to be valid and accurate bars. Once in awhile, it's not the lowest or highest bar that is painted, but rather the one next to it -- I haven't been able to figure out why, but it's still close enough to be useful.

 

Additionally, about 85%+ of the bars which should be painted are. That means that as best I can tell, TTM's indicator will paint 10 white bar lows or highs for every 8.5 or so that my indicator paints.

 

If anyone can figure out how to tune this indicator to match TTM's exactly, please feel free. I'll also re-post if I ever figure it out.

 

Best Regards,

biegea

This on what timeframe chart you're using to get 95% and 85% accuracy? I had tried it (maybe coded differntly) but wasn't convinced enough to trade it.

Torero, it works on any timeframe. My approximate percentages were based on charts I compared it to in various TTM videos.

 

Dovetree, here's the code:

inputs: BarWidth(3); 

variables: UpTrend(false), LowPainted(false), HighPainted(false), ExtremeBar(0), 
	   TriggerBarLow(0), ExtremeBarHigh(0), 
	   TriggerBarHigh(0), ExtremeBarLow(0), counter(-1); 

// Compare the 9-period MA to the previous bar's value as the basis for determining 
// if we are in an uptrend or a downtrend at this moment. 
//  
// We will NOT check for the presence of a trend if we are 
// "waiting for a confirmation of a trigger (i.e. Extreme Bar <> 0)"  ?? 

//Downtrend -- Look to paint a low bar 
if (AverageFC(Close[3],9) < AverageFC(Close[4],9) and ExtremeBar=0)	
	or ((AverageFC(Close[3],9) = AverageFC(Close[4],9) and ExtremeBar=0) and (UpTrend=False))
	then begin 

	UpTrend=False; 
	HighPainted=false; 
	if low[3] > low then LowPainted=false; 
end; 


//Uptrend -- Look to paint a high bar
if AverageFC(Close[3],9) > AverageFC(Close[4],9) and ExtremeBar=0
	or ((AverageFC(Close[3],9) = AverageFC(Close[4],9) and ExtremeBar=0) and (UpTrend=True))
	then begin 

	UpTrend=True; 
	LowPainted=false; 
	if high[3] < high then HighPainted=false; 
end; 


//Check for triggers and paint the extreme bar on confirmation 
//Uptrend 

if UpTrend = True and HighPainted=false then begin 

	if high[2] < high[3] and ExtremeBar=0 then begin 
		ExtremeBar = 3; 
		ExtremeBarHigh = high[3]; 
		TriggerBarLow = low[2]; 
	end; 

	if high[1] > ExtremeBarHigh then begin 
		ExtremeBar = 0; 
		ExtremeBarHigh = 0; 
		TriggerBarLow = 0; 
		counter=-1; 
	end; 




	if ExtremeBar <> 0 then	counter=counter+1; 


	// Paint an "Extreme Bar" if it exists based on the two if blocks above 
	// OR if the earlier close was above the 8-EMA and the later close was 
	// below the 8-EMA) 

	if (close[1] < TriggerBarLow and ExtremeBar <> 0)  
//			or ((Close[3] > XAverage(Close[3],8)) and (Close[1] < XAverage(Close[1],8)))
		then begin 

		ExtremeBar = ExtremeBar + counter; 
		PlotPaintBar[ExtremeBar](High[ExtremeBar],Low[ExtremeBar],"ScalperSig",white); 
		SetPlotWidth[ExtremeBar](1,BarWidth); 
		SetPlotColor[ExtremeBar](1,white); 
	 	alert("Scalper Sell Detected!"); 
		HighPainted = true; 
		counter=-1; 
		ExtremeBar=0; 
	end; 
end; 


//Downtrend

if UpTrend = False and LowPainted=false then begin

	if low[2] > low[3] and ExtremeBar=0 then begin
		ExtremeBar = 3;
		ExtremeBarLow = low[3];
		TriggerBarHigh = high[2];

		if ExtremeBarLow > low[4] then ExtremeBar = 4;
	end;

	if low[1] < ExtremeBarLow then begin
		ExtremeBar = 0;
		ExtremeBarLow = 0;
		TriggerBarHigh = 0;
		counter=-1;
	end;

	if ExtremeBar <> 0 then	counter=counter+1;

	if close[1] > TriggerBarHigh and ExtremeBar <> 0 then begin
		ExtremeBar = ExtremeBar + counter;
		PlotPaintBar[ExtremeBar](Low[ExtremeBar],High[ExtremeBar],"ScalperSig",white);
		SetPlotWidth[ExtremeBar](1,BarWidth);
		SetPlotColor[ExtremeBar](1,white);
	 	alert("Scalper Buy Detected!");
		LowPainted = true;
		counter=-1;
		ExtremeBar=0;
	end;

end;

Yessir (or yes ma'am). Paintbar study. Looking forward to any feedback or assistance anyone can provide. It would be exciting to get it 100% matched with TTM's.

Hi Biegea I don't believe your code is marking the paint bars correctly. TTm scalper paints a bar after 3 consecutive higher or lower closes and does not paint anyfurther bars until a revers signal is acquired.

 

I am new to easy language but have coded this in metastock below is the code.

 

The code for higher closes in the highlights Tab

 

BC:=C>Ref(C,-1) AND Ref(C,-1)>Ref(C,-2);

 

SC:=C<Ref(C,-1) AND Ref(C,-1)<Ref(C,-2);

 

X:=If(BC=1,1,If(SC=1,0,PREV));

 

Cross(X,0.5);

 

 

Here is the one for the lower closes:

 

BC:=C>Ref(C,-1) AND Ref(C,-1)>Ref(C,-2);

 

SC:=C<Ref(C,-1) AND Ref(C,-1)<Ref(C,-2);

 

X:=If(BC=1,1,If(SC=1,0,PREV));

 

Cross(0.5,X);

 

I have toruble coverting to EL so far

Unfortunately, the original TTM indicator does not paint bars in a correct way. It cheats. It paints bars in the past. I did not see this one, since I do not have tradestation and picture was not attached. I use Neoticker and things like painting bars in back are not allowed because in reality you will never see the chart like that real time. What looks great on a screenshot is impossible to trade. If you paint that bar which you should, the actual bar when the signal happens you will find out the indicator is useless.

 

This will save you a lot of valuable time and if you were considering buying the TTM original also money.

I stand by my original comment, which was summarily deleted for some reason:

 

Another lagging indicator. It paints the past. Nothing special here.

True - it paints in the past, but TTM acknowledges this, and John Carter still considers it valuable -- it typically paints 2-3 bars after the fact but recognizes what some would argue is a conditional change in the state of the market.

 

Thanks to all who have commented on this thread. It appears a more recent submission may be exactly the same as JC's. I have not validated it yet but at least one other forum meber has and says it's great.

 

Good luck to all,

biegea

I have another version of the TTM scalper attached. It does paint in the past. Having read carters book this is the way it is suppose to work. You get the scalper alert then enter the market. This happens on the second bar. It seems to work well on trends, but seeing you don't know a trend is about to happen it is only a indicator. If anyone can code the second bar to paint then it will be easier visually.

    • Date : 29th November 2021. Market Update – November 29 – Omicron dominates sentiment. USD (USDIndex 96.30) recovers from Fridays slump (95.98), Stocks lost over –2.2% in thin half-day trading, Oil FUTS lost –13%, Gold slumped and Yields tanked (10-yr 1.482%) on a safe haven (JPY & CHF bid) risk off day. (and a strange carry trade bid for EUR). Weekend news, as Countries block flights and tighten restricts, but first Omicron cases in SA appear mild and hospitalizations have not spiked, has seen a bounce in sentiment and Asian markets. Pfizer suggested it would take 100 days to adapt new vaccine, if required. US Yields 10yr trades up 5.1 bp at 1.52%, after Friday’s slump. Equities – tanked in thin and short day on Friday USA500 -106.84 (-2.27%) at 45941 – USA500.F trades higher at 4639. USOil – collapsed to $67.08 – now up nearly $4 at $71.00. OPEC+ have delayed this weeks meeting by 2 days & likely to delay planned January production increases. Gold spiked under $1780, has bounced to $1795 but struggles to recoup $1800   FX markets – EURUSD now 1.1270, after a +125pip rally on Friday, USDJPY now 113.36, from 115.50 to 113.00 on Friday & Cable back to 1.3325. Overnight – JPY Retail Sales recover but miss expectations (0.9% vs 1.2% & -0.5% last time). European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is down -27 ticks, US futures are also in the red & the US 10-year rate is up 5.1 bp at 1.52%. Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian part of the session, but DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 1.2% and 1.3% respectively and a 1.2% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher. A part reversal of Friday’s flows then as virus developments remain in focus. Travel restrictions are making a come back and the services sector in particular is facing fresh pain, but as Lagarde suggested over the weekend, the impact of Omicron is unlikely to throw economies back to the situation at the start of the pandemic, meaning the overall situation has not really changed. We continue to see the ECB on course to end PEPP purchases on time in March next year, although developments will add to the arguments of those who want to keep the flexibility on the distribution of asset purchases at least for future emergencies. The BoE meanwhile may be postponing the planned rate hike into next year. Today – German regional and national CPIs, Eurozone Consumer Confidence (final), US Pending Home Sales, ECB’s de Guindos, Schnabel, Lagarde, Fed’s Williams, Powell.

    • USDJPY PRICE OUTFLOW IS DRAWN BY SELLERS BACK TO 114.840   USDJPY Price Analysis – November 25 USDJPY price outflow is being held back as a consequence of bears causing opposition to the market influence. The price structure of the market strives to maintain an uptrend configuration under a bullish influence. However, the sellers are causing some resistance in the market, which is causing a hold in the market configuration. Because of this conflict in the market, the outflow of the bulls in the market will be held back to the 114.840 critical level. USDJPY Critical Levels Resistance Levels: 114.840, 112.790 Support Levels: 110.800, 109.100 USDJPY Long Term Trend: Bullish The bullish outflow price structure initially began with the expansive breadth of consolidation. The market was birthed after a strong price expansion before the bullish uprise. The price undulated between the breadth of the 110.800 and 109.100 significant price levels. As a result of this accumulation, the price was then pushed out to higher levels. With the continuation of the market expansion, buyers outflow upward, with the bulls taking hold of the market. Furthermore, price continues to experience more outflows as several structural levels were broken. When USDJPY eventually gets to the 112.790 level, the price resumes its accumulation phase. The market encountered a short phase of expansion before resuming bullish persistence. The price finally breaks through the 114.840 significant level and we expect a withdrawal back to this price level before bullish engagement. The Tensile Strength indicator shows the resilience of the market influence as the market is set to resume its bullish leverage after sellers retreat. USDJPY Short Term Trend: Bearish The 4-hour chart of USDJPY shows the price configuration riding upward following a strong force that broke through the 114.840 critical level. The price is now set in a retreat motion as the price is seen to be pulling away to the 114.840 price level. The Moving Average Convergence and Divergence indicator shows the market’s prevalent direction as the price is set on a pullback course to the 114.840 critical level before bullish outflow.   Source: https://learn2.trade
