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.

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.

    • #GBPUSD #analysis #forex #forexnews #socialtrading The #GBPUSD pair remained under some selling pressure amid a flurry of #Brexit headlines, albeit managed to recover around 60-65 pips from daily lows touched in the last hour.   The pair failed to capitalize on the previous session's strong upsurge to the highest level since May 21 and met with some aggressive supply on Wednesday amid fading optimism over a possible #Brexit agreement before the fast-approaching October 31 deadline. Against the backdrop of the #DUP concerns on the UK PM Boris Johnson’s Brexit concessions, a UK official said that the government was downbeat on chances of a Brexit deal, exerted some heavy #pressure on the #Pound.   The #intraday selling pressure aggravated further, dragging the pair closer to mid-1.2600s, in reaction to reports that suggested technical Brexit negotiations have reached an impasse. The report further added that the EU sees Brexit deal as impossible unless the UK moves.   With the latest #Brexit developments turning out to be an exclusive driver of the intraday volatility, the pair seemed rather unaffected by a subdued US Dollar price action, which remained on the defensive amid the ongoing slide in the US Treasury bond yields.   If the GBP/USD pair continues to show some resilience below the 1.2700 round-figure mark or the current pullback marks the end of the recent strong #bullish momentum that started last week and the resumption of the recent bearish trend. #forex #followme #socialtrading

    • Date : 14th October 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 14th October 2019.No-deal Brexit risks are looking more real than ever, with reports suggesting that talks will officially break down this week ahead of the upcoming EU summit on 17 and 18 October. Elsewhere, further US data and Fedspeak could provide more clues about the possibility of a Fed rate cut. Tuesday – 15 October 2019 Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y. ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 08:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are expected to slip to 3.7% y/y in the three months to August, down from 3.8%y/y. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.8%, which was the lowest rate seen since December 1974. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though expected to declne further to -33.0 slightly from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month. Consumer Price Index (NZD, GMT 21:45) – One of the most important figures for FX markets, the y/y CPI for Q3 is expected to come out at 1.4%, compared to 1.7% in the previous quarter. Wednesday – 16 October 2019 Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in September after dipping to 1.7% in August from 2.1% in July. Weakness in sterling from year-go levels should impact some offset to disinflationary forces. Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI is expected to be confirmed at just 0.9% y/y in the final release for September, although the deceleration in the headline rate over the month was largely due to base effects from energy prices, with core inflation actually moving up to 1.0% y/y from 0.9% y/y in August. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The Canadian CPI index is expected to have increased to 2%y/y compared to 1.9%y/y in August. The core CPI measures remained near 2.0%. Retail Sales (USD, GMT 12:30) – Retail Sales are an important determinant of consumer spending thus making it a leading indicator for overall economic growth. Consensus expectations suggest that we should have increased by 0.2% in September, for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figure, following a 0.4% August headline rise with a flat ex-auto figure. Fedspeak: Fed Brainard (USD, GMT 19:00) Thursday – 17 October 2019 European Council Summit on Brexit Employment Data (AUD, GMT 01:30) – While the Unemployment Rate is projected to have flipped at 5.3% in September, Employment change is expected to have eased, increasing by 10K compared to 34.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 08:30) – Retail Sales in the UK are anticipated to increase in September, reaching 3.0% on a y/y basis, and 0.5% on a m/m basis, from the 2.7% and -0.2% respectively Housing Data and Building Permits (USD, GMT 12:30) – Housing starts should drop back to a 1.282 mln pace in September, after a sharp rise to a 1.364 mln clip in August with the help of lower mortgage rates. Permits similarly are expected to slow to 1.370 mln in September, after popping to 1.425 mln in September. Permits have shown a solid growth path into Q3 despite a July starts set-back. Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Survey (USD, GMT 12:30) – The Philly Fed index is seen falling to 7.0 from 12.0 in September, versus a 1-year high of 21.8 in July and a 33-month low of -4.1 in February. The late-September producer sentiment surveys deteriorated significantly after firmness in the early-September reports, and the early-October data will be closely scrutinized to see if this pull-back continued. The “soft data” surveys are at risk of a possible impact from the UAW-GM strike, alongside the ongoing headwind from troubles abroad. Fedspeak: Fed Bowman and Fed Williams (USD, GMT 18:00 and 20:20) Friday – 18 October 2019 European Council Summit on Brexit China Gross Domestic Product (CNY, GMT 02:00)- Chinese GDP is projected to see additional moderation to a 6.1% y/y pace in Q3, from 6.2% in Q2. Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The September industrial production is forecast at 4.5% y/y from 4.4% previously, while September retail sales likely improved to 7.7% y/y from 7.5%.

    • This should really be very easy, but I can't find an article or video to walk me through it. I picked 20 ticker symbols where the stocks are in a tight trading range. I got them all into one list I call "Channel". I'd like to add several indicators that apply to all, such as MACD, volume, 3 moving averages. Then I'd like to scroll through the list, adding trendlines, or horizontal lines to mark the top & bottom of the price channel for each. Then set an alarm for a breakout in each direction that indicates a breakout. Could you point me to an article or video that walks me through how to do this? ...or give me the steps? Thank you, RichardV2, Experienced stock trader back before the Internet was invented.😁
