Scalper Buys/Sell Replica

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have been an avid reader of this forum for a while. I just thought I would contribute to an internet that I have taken so much from...

 

Here is a replica of Scalper Buys and Sells. As far as I can tell, it matches up perfectly. If you would like to use it along with the Heiken-Ashi paintbars, I recommend you set the plot thickness to at least two more than the thickness of the Heiken-Ashi (In the attached picture, the Scalper Indicator is set to 3 and the Heiken-Ashi is set to 1). Also, please note that candlesticks are not supported.

 

Bugs/feedback are appreciated. I hope you all enjoy. Happy Trading,

 

Luis

 

p.s. For those of you who like to use candlesticks, I also have a ShowMe version, which places a dot on the highs/lows...Let me know if there is interest.

You are all very welcome :) Glad I could help.

 

Glenbee, I will be posting the ShowMe in a separate thread shortly.

 

As far as how the indicator actually works, John's description of "three higher closes" is a bit misleading. I disregarded this criteria in the code. It is merely based on swing highs/lows. I'll give an example for a Scalper Sell:

 

1. You get a high that's at least as high or higher than the previous two bars. This bar is a potential paintbar.

2. The next bar makes a lower high; The low of this bar is the trigger.

3. From here, if we do not make a higher high and we get a close below the trigger, we paint the swing high bar. Concept is simple but was a bit tricky to program (for me, at least).

 

By the way, I got this description from the following video:

Hope it helps!

I've been searching for this indicator for literally a month now. There are some similar .eld's floating around, but they are not identical to the Scalper indicator. Yours is. Thanks so much!!!

Could you please post the source code so I could port it to Amibroker?

Thanks!

Hi Trader Lu, Thanks for the code it works in 2000i with some modification. However, the white paint bar completely blots out the colour of the underlying heiken ashi colour (unlike your attached thubnail). I have tried changing the thickness of both the HA and scalper b/s but still get just a white bar.... any suggestions ?

 

Thanks

Traderlu has also kindfully done it in a "show me" edition, shown here:

Try transferring your code into a "Show me" indicator.

 

Cheers

Dovetree,

 

I have had that same problem. I think it has to do with the order in which you add the analysis techniques to your chart. Try adding the Heiken-Ashi first, then the Scalper, or vice-versa. I can't remember which was the right order. Just don't add them at the same time. This should do the trick. And don't forget the thickness! Hope this helps

Hope I'm not out of line here...but I use Sierra charts and the code that they use is C++. Does anyone know how difficult is it to convert code like Traderlu posted to C++. Does anyone have experience doing this or are there any examples of how to convert TS code to C++?:confused: Thx

i do not know where to start from.

do u?

 

There's a link on page two of this thread. The TradeStation code is posted there. To start I would have a look at it to get the logic behind the paintbar study. If you don't know any EasyLanguage then I'd take that code to a forum where people know esignal language. I personally don't because I can't stand esignal.

Good luck with your quest. I hope you find answers.

Traderlu,

 

Hi. Thanks for posting the TS code. I tried following the code, but I'm and esignal person so I don't get the small nuances of the code. I'm trying to convert this to esignal, but I keep getting confused by the rules. The video is also confusing as Carter keeps correcting himself and isn't clear.

 

1. You get a high that's at least as high or higher than the previous two bars. This bar is a potential paintbar.

Q- Is this 3 higher highs based on the close of each bar or just the highs of each bar?

 

2. The next bar makes a lower high; The low of this bar is the trigger.

Q - Same question as before, is this lower high based on the close of the trigger bar or the high of the trigger bar?

 

 

As far as how the indicator actually works, John's description of "three higher closes" is a bit misleading. I disregarded this criteria in the code. It is merely based on swing highs/lows. I'll give an example for a Scalper Sell:

 

1. You get a high that's at least as high or higher than the previous two bars. This bar is a potential paintbar.

2. The next bar makes a lower high; The low of this bar is the trigger.

3. From here, if we do not make a higher high and we get a close below the trigger, we paint the swing high bar. Concept is simple but was a bit tricky to program (for me, at least).

 

Thanks.

    • Date : 17th September 2020.The Guppy dips to 135.00, having stalled at 136.00.GBPJPY, Daily Both the UK and Japan are in the middle of political upheavals, (the Brexit Trade talks and Internal Market Bill on one side and the handover from one political dynasty to his trusted lieutenant on the other. Earlier today we had the BOJ signalling No Change to current policy as the new PM Suga completes his first few days in the role. The BOE has just published their statement¹ and minutes from their latest meeting, and again it’s no change across the board, (excuse the pun), although the spectre of negative interest rates in the UK is more firmly “in the toolbox” than ever before. The BOE continues to negotiate the tricky ground around monetary policy with the backdrop of deteriorating UK-EU relations and the likelihood of PM Johnson overseeing a very limited trade deal with the EU, if one is agreed at all. The Brexit endgame showdown is very much “in-play”.BOE highlights include – “stands ready to adjust monetary policy”, and to“keep under review the range of actions” – taken as a nod to possible negative rates next year with the statement that the MPC has been briefed on the BoE’s plans to explore how a negative bank rate could be implemented effectively. It also “does not intend to tighten monetary policy until there is clear evidence that significant progress is being made in eliminating spare capacity and achieving the 2% inflation target sustainably.”Cable continues to rotate around 1.2900 today, whilst EURGBP jumped from 0.9090 to 0.9150 and GBPJPY plunged to 135.00 a level not seen since July 20, some 42 trading days ago.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 16th September 2020.FX Update September 16 – A weaker USD ahead of the FED.EURUSD has rallied by just over 50 pips from the intraday low in posting a high at 1.1882. This swings yesterday’s six-day peak at 1.1901 back into scope. Dollar weakness is driving the move, which is being facilitated by strong gains in Cable (0.6%) and in the AUDUSD and NZDUSD (both 0.5%). USDJPY touched the key psychological 105.00, S2 and new seven-week low from a pivot yesterday at 105.50 and highs last week of 106.38.Regarding the FOMC, no changes are expected in policy, and while the central bank will likely present upward revisions to US economic projections, the recently codified lower-for-longer monetary policy regime is driving a bearish dollar sentiment. The Dollar is also correlating inversely with global stock markets. These factors appear to be outweighing recent ECB signalling about its concerns about euro strength, which partly counterbalances the easing measures implemented earlier in the year. The Pound has rallied to six-day highs against both the Dollar and Euro.Cable‘s high is 1.2976. The gains in the UK currency have been concurrent with market narratives showing a measure of incredulity about the UK government’s insistence that it is serious about its threat to leave the EU’s single market at year-end without a new trade deal, given the massive near-term disruptive impact it would have on the economy and the divisions appearing within the Conservative Party and among UK nations. Even though the controversial Internal Market Bill sailed through the House of Commons, the proposed legislation is likely to have a tougher time in the House of Lords, and in any case there are suspicions that the legislation is merely a gambit of PM Johnson and his cabinet to up the ante and strengthen their negotiating position into the final weeks of talks. This fits with expectations that a more practical attitude will be seen in trade negotiations once state leaders become directly involved in the run-in to the October 15th-16th EU summit. This backdrop has lessened the bearish conviction markets have with regard to the Pound.Always trade with strict risk management.
