Playing with the VMAR`s open research

Recommended Posts

I wonder how they meassure volume on forex :confused: ..

Walter

Good question, it is supposed to be the pip volume, add up all the 1 pip tick movements in a minute and that is supposed to be the volume. But now the way the throttling is working tells me the platform works out the volume based on the number of ticks it allows to go through, got nothing to do with real tick movements, which seems to be in quarter pip steps anyway :\

Hi guys, that movie looks awfully nice.

When I tried MB Trading FX to my eSignal data, I found out that the MB tick charts were much faster. It would be possible to try them as a data provider with a demo account and NT 6.5 Beta. But Walter's VWAP research already looks very promising. I tried to code a bit yesterday, but I was way too tired to accomplish anything.

 

Keep up the good work guys, take care

did it put you nervous Sparrow ? jejeje...

 

well yes Midas trading would be just awesome ¡¡ it would basicly be a rejection technique... reject vwaps (dynamic vwaps) with some nice decent timing method... be it vma`s or hulls... and thats it... very simple, very powerfull... cheers Walter.

Hey guys,

I've added a BreakTime to the VWAP by Josh, give it a shot and get back to me if you'd like to have some changes.

 

Cheers

 

 

YES YES YES YES YES ¡¡¡¡ YES AND HURRAY YEEEEESSS ¡¡

 

YOU ROCK DUDE ¡¡¡ Thats the concept... ¡¡

Unicorn.

 

Thanks Unicorn... we will be working a lot on this one... I think we will be new Pioners on Levines work... only we will add our fancy vma timing...

 

By the way Unicorn, I am revisiting vma hull signal... but with a pure hull against this signal... keep you posted... as you know, this a laboratory... lots of testings... but thanks for insisting on this one...

 

Hiya all, I made a variation of the VWAP that will make working with it a bit easier. The VWAP itself is unchanged, but you'll be able to define more than one standard deviation in the indicator.

 

Have fun and let me hear your suggestions and problems, thanks the original author Josh at http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/vb.

 

Cheers

 

Thanks a lot Sparrow, will test this one... would you be willing to compare vwap formula against Levines original one to see how near/far we are from it ?... its on lesson 9 from the posted material... I attach again...

 

Awesome video btw Walter, knocks my socks off :D

 

 

Well imagine when we develop some real good morfology on this thing... I think it will be awesome ¡¡

 

Thanks for making this great team to all of you ¡¡ cheers Walter.

.

 

Let me update you right now on this... testings show very clean lines BUT... they lag compared to fxst3cci to much... so for scalping bussiness they are not so competitive... maybe for a day trader that would be more interesting to avoid more excesive amount of signals... now scalping is my stuff so, its more priority to direct my research into scalping type things...

 

the settings I fulled most was: lead line (blue) : hull 9 , signal line (yellow) : adxvma 2 with hull 4 of adxvma, only plot hull of vma...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=4024&stc=1&d=1195099916

 

chances are this combo is short lived due to my scalping tight normal expectations... cheers Walter.

Hi NiCForce

I didn't answer your question properly the first time.

Adding an ema line with iMAOnArray would need an extra array and we already ran out.

Would have to drop the red and green histogram lines that use up two arrays.

Cheers Bruce

 

 

hello Bruce

I was last week @ work in France.

There for this late response

I Know that we have shortage to buffers

but I am to researches if we can use EA to solve this problem.

Now here is the nicer version of the bands

 

Enjoy

 

I am trying to install this in NinjaTrader. So far I am extracting the zip file into the: My Documents\NinjaTrader 6\bin\Custom\Indicator folder. Then I go into the control center and click on Tool> Edit NinjaScript > Indicator. I can select and have the code open up. Then I hit an f5 to compile and have it added as an indicator.

 

My problem is I still can't get this to display (VMARainbow, fantail, etc.). Would someone please let me know what I'm doing wrong. Do I need to add all the indicators that are in this zip file. Some have "@ signs" and some don't. Does that matter? I know i'm close...just not quite there..:(

Thanks...Armand

Hi Armand.

 

Do you have different versions of NT? If you have the beta version and the previous version, then you will have different folders to capture the indicators.

 

If you don't have the beta version, first try with it.

You need to set a value for the bands, it won't display anything with the default values.

 

Can someone tell me where to set the values for the bands in NinjaTrader and what to set them to? Thanks...Armand

    • Date : 12th December 2019. Lagarde prepares ECB debut – 12th December 2019.   Policy unchanged Projections unlikely to change much Clues about review sought Style in focus Presiding over her first presser of the European Central Bank today, Lagarde is expected to confirm once again the current policy setting, giving time to ECB to focus on the planned review of its overall policy framework.Final Eurozone GDP and PMI readings broadly supported this neutral picture, while the confidence that a deep recession can be avoided is strengthening (Figure 1) despite the fact that German manufacturing and production numbers still look weak. The exports and the overall trade are actually holding up much better than expected, which together with still strong labour markets is underpinning hopes the net exports and consumption will continue to support growth not just in Germany.Figure 1 : December German ZEW investor confidence outcome, end the year firmly in positive territory at the highest level since February 2018.As there is nothing in the data really to challenge the ECB’s overall policy stance, the focus firstly turns into the tone and presentation style that President Lagarde will have. The “risk” is that the presser will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. Lagarde’s team building exercise seems to have worked and at least in public there has been a pretty consistent message since she took over, which is very likely to be confirmed today. Additionally it will be interesting to see whether she will back fully Draghi’s package.Citi Bank: All key interest rates will likely be left unchanged, and the forward guidance reaffirmed. The main interest at this meeting will be the new Eurosystem staff projections, extended to 2022, to gauge whether the September package will be sufficient to bring inflation back into line with the ECB’s target over the forecast horizon. If not, investors’ attention will quickly turn to the ECB’s toolbox and what instruments the Governing Council would be willing to use and when, in order to defend its credibility in the absence of large fiscal support. The upcoming strategic review of monetary policy will also likely be the focus of many questions.Hence as reported by Citi, other than Lagarde’s style, ECB projections could also monopolize the attention. Even though, the ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, it has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The central bank won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon with many analysts supporting that this will continue until mid-2020 unless there is a major change in circumstance.Central bankers will be conducting a comprehensive review of the policy framework, however, with a special focus on the inflation target. A more symmetric definition, which stresses that the ECB can see through lengthy inflation overshoots as well as periods of too low headline rates is likely to come in the first quarter of next year. The inclusion of owner-occupied housing costs into the HICP number also remains a challenge especially as house prices are rising rapidly in some centres, also thanks to the low interest rate environment.Bund yields have nudged higher over the past week, but the German 10-year so far failed to move lastingly above -0.3%. Uncertainty on trade and Brexit are keeping a lid on yields, although there is the risk that if things go the way markets want and a phase one trade deal is confirmed and in the UK PM Johnson gets his majority, there could be a sharp rise in yields, if markets price out further easing and start to look ahead to central banks removing some of the stimulus.However this is far away for now, while central bankers are not looking eager to add further easing.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • USDJPY Remains Biased To The Downside   USDJPY faces further price weakness despite its price hesitation on Tuesday. On the upside, resistance comes in at 109.00 level. Above this level will turn attention to the 109.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 110.00 level on a break of that area, A cut through here will open the door for more gain towards the 110.50. On the downside, support lies at the 108.00 level where a break will target the 107.50 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 107.00 level and then lower towards the 106.50 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further downside threats.        
    • Sterling Advances Barely Hours To UK Elections As Latest Poll Predicts Conservatives Win In just two days from now, a major event that will set the trend for the currency market for the year 2020, the UK elections will be held. In the face of a Brexit extension, UK prime minister had pushed for an earlier election in the hopes of having a majority conservatives win in the parliament which will make the Brexit deal pass through easily. As the clock ticks, with barely less than 48 hours to this epochal event, the newest poll by Survation conducted for ITV’s good morning Britain show predicts a Boris Johnson win by 14 pts. ahead of Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour party. The Brexit deal seemed to give the conservatives an edge as it accounted for 32% of the vote decision while NHS gave Labour party a slight edge. On the overall, a majority vote of 42% was predicted for the conservatives while Labour had 28%. Market Reaction as the Clock Ticks Optimism looms in the market as the prediction of a conservatives win will ease Britain’s exit from Europe by January 31 deadline. The EUR/GBP pair continued to fall till the early hours of today breaking the 0.8411 trend line targeting the 0.8149 resistance level. GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains. The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow. Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections. The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated. On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range. In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers. Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020. Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.
    • Date : 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview – 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview No policy changes or surprises are expected with today’s announcement (19:00 GMT) and Chair Powell’s press conference 30 minutes later. It will be interesting to see if, as expected, the voting is unanimous this time round. The FOMC members have expressed significant differences of opinion during 2019 as three rate cuts were implemented.  The apparent paradox of low unemployment and low inflation, the new “norm”. The two-digit unemployment rate (U-3) in November edged down to 3.53% from 3.56% in October, and a 3.52% cycle-low in September, all below the 3.58% prior cycle-low in April and a 4.00% rate at the beginning of the year. Current readings remain much lower than the 4.2% long-run unemployment rate projection noted in the September SEP, it is expected that this estimate will be trimmed today. Headline CPI rose 0.4% in October while the core index rose by 0.2%, for respective y/y gains of 1.8% and 2.3%, versus September figures of 1.7% and 2.4%. Today the November headline is expected to fall again to 0.2% and the core remains flat at 0.2% too. The Fed’s favoured inflation gauge, the PCE chain price measure, rose 1.3% y/y in October and expectations are for an uptick to 1.4% in November. The core PCE chain price measure rose 1.6% y/y in November, versus 1.7% in September, and expectations are for the pace to hold at 1.6% in November. The FOMC’s latest median estimates for 2019 inflation are 1.5% for the headline and 1.8% for the core. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s new quarterly forecasts, with expectations raised and likely to be mostly bullish results with a bump up in the median growth projection and a drop in the median dot to reflect a steady stance through 2020. However, the individual dots are likely to show both, forecasts for cuts and hikes. Chair Powell is expected to reiterate the US economy and policy are in a “good place,” (a phrase he has used a number of times lately) and could sound a little more upbeat after the strong jobs report. But, he will continue to warn of downside risks. The FOMC isn’t likely to announce any new measures on reserve management operations (QE?) or a repo facility. All steady into 2020 and beyond. USDIndex remains biased to the down side but has support around 97.40 and the 200-day moving average. A breach of this key support zone brings in 97.00 and the October low of 96.85. A break over 97.80 (the confluence of the 20 and 50-day moving averages) and 98.00 would be required before a re-test of the recent high at 98.50 could be considered.
