Playing with the VMAR`s open research

Recommended Posts

:question:

My question would be kind off topic but I am a new user of this platform /MT4/ and would love to participate in research.

Is this software has no features as a very basic and necessary for me like global cursor to truck a price across multiple timeframes/charts and tick charts or it’s just my inexperienced first impression?

 

unfortunately it still doesnt have that feature... you only have crosshairs on each individual chart and you have to manually find the matches between charts... it will be great to have this function added... I really dont know if it is asked for the next version... should I check that... cheers Walter.

You can write your own indicator to display prices from one pair onto another chart or say show a 5min bollinger on a 1 min chart. But the catch is that you have to have both charts open in order to access the market feed for the other chart. So you can end up with 10 charts for each of 3 time frames = 30 charts = slow platform.

 

The programmable indicators are their edge for flexibility and there are forums were that stuff gets shared. But yes MT4 has limitations. You cant run indicators in the tick chart, 1min is fastest chart, when one chart is getting data from a chart for another pair the data only comes through when the other pair has a tick, then it has to wait for a tick on the main chart before it gets processed and displayed, so there can be time delays being a pest.

It really depends on what you want to do, maybe MT4 will be good, maybe bad and you find out the hard way by wasting time.

 

MT4 will also send the market feed to Excel, so there you might be less restricted by the limitations of any proprietory platform. Do your own thing maybe.

 

MT4 is the only one I have used so I am short of things to compare it to.

Sometimes it is frustrating.

thanks a lot for detailed explanation and review of MT4, I ve spent some time using it but think its better for me to replicate the indicator for eSignal or Tradestation and stick with what I already know and prefer to use.

Once again, greatly appreciate your contribution.

FantailVMA2 is a pup.

#--------------#

Got it wrong again...so the files have been removed.

The fantail defaults to Close price at the live end of a chart.

This is the iMAOnArray function being dis-functional.

Had no live charts to test it on over the weekend.

Sorry to the 12 who DL'd a pup.

Will get VMA3 out asap.<sigh>

So my first experiment with the Pyenners fantailvma3...

 

There are lots of combinations to be played arround, so please dont take me to seriously at this point as I am playing arround... pure open research...

 

in this first case it will be the fantailvma3 rainbow template + another fantailvma3 base line (red) with inputs 2-4-1-1...

 

Chart looks like this :

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=2899&stc=1&d=1190031140

 

notice the relationship between the yellow and red... turbo type relationship as yellow leading the red... crossover here was a possible timing entry...

 

thats a very first alternative... all interactions will be very welcome ¡¡ please tell me your opinions.... cheers Walter.

Here I post a second combination... in this case I have the fantailvma3 template + a fantailvma1 base line (black)... this gives a nice clean relationship between the yellow and the black lines (maybe not so leading) but quite nice relation... unfortunately on todays case we had a whipsaw on this combination...

Yes it would be nice to find something like that and the only way to find it is to spend time trying things out. Got a feeling that some more vma lines in there near the price might be more useful than the yellow ema lines currently are.

 

Gee the fantails look nice when you get a bunch of them up on the screen.

Third combination... more classic one... the fantailvma3 template alone... yelow line with darkgreen line... this could also suggest a scalping option of vmar icons on 1 min as well...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=2902&stc=1&d=1190034235

 

these is a quite nice leading combination... cheers Walter.

Some counter exhaustion future aplications...

 

with fantailvma3 template + fantailvma3 base line (red) inputs 64-8-1-1

This two continuation icons that just happened...

 

timing with fantailvma3 template and yellow dark green relationship...

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=2906&stc=1&d=1190035960

 

this one was leading... let me compare to old basic timing :

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=2907&stc=1&d=1190036139

 

you can notice the contrasted lag... quite a contrast ¡¡ cheers Walter.

For example... if we wanted to use a counter method on an evident exhaustion scenario... look how the fantailvma3 template gives a nice competitive timing...

all ideas... cheers Walter.

I like the way yellow leads black, gives a good trend confirmation, yellow below black=fall, yellow above black=rise, so when yellow meets black time to close or reverse?? But the whipsaw thing, how do you know beforehand that a short is going to lack momentum and go nowhere? Now it would be nice to have some indication of which trades will not be so good. Was trying to demo trade this messy stuff and getting mixed results because it is mixed up stuff in that whipsaw area.

 

By the way I put internal limiting in VMA3 so if you put in 64-10 all you get is the maximum 8-8, maybe I was too conservative using 8-8 but that looked like being enough to get HEs about as long as VMA1.

 

The last two settings numbers are used by the template file to send ema numbers for each of the fantail lines. So when you are running VMA3 without a template, using x-y-2-1 will give you the position of the second line in the fantail, x-y-4-1 gives the third line, the dark green line is like x-y-26-1 I think and x-y-100-1 should be the end of the rainbow, magenta line.

Gee just realized it may be easy to add in secondary VMA lines, slower ones, just by putting them in the template file, hell that would be so much easier than having to do extra coding for them, Duhhh.

Nice Explanation there Bruce about those inputs, that means we can get to plot lets say 200 (long away rainbow signal)...

 

when looking at this small charts with this small tools you can loose focus... thats why you MUST have a setup (whatever) decided from a higher time frame (ej 5 min) otherwise the 1 min will be tricky... now can you scalp from the 1 min ? YES you can... but you need a very solid definition of trend... its very recomendable having very long shot lines on the 1 min if scalping is in the proyect...

 

Now that you explained this parameters, look at the red line... it is 200... gives a more clear trend panorama for a 1 min scalper... cheers Walter.

Nice one Walter.

 

Currently the 100 ema line needs 100 bars of chart history and 200 would need 200 bars which uses a lot more resources than are justified. May be able to get similar results from a less resource-hungry approach.

If you think the 200 line would be useful to have, let me know.

 

And yes, I was experimenting at using just the 1min for scalping at times when the 5min says to stay out. Thats me learning things the hard way over and over, bone headed. Sometimes there is a good strong go signal from the yellow line at the start of a ladder but it still may not mean much if the 5min has no trend.

 

Also I think the ADX front end can do a slighly better job at finding the trend but still got bugs to fix in that program. So there are possible VMA4, 5 and 6 in the works already, just don't know yet how much difference they might make.

About trend... that was an example IF you wanted just to look at the 1 min chart... I still would recomend looking at the 5 min for trend... its more easy and will not confuse you by no means... not with vmars...

 

more versions ahahahah.... you make my mouth water jejejej... cheers Walter.

    • Date : 8th July 2020.EURUSD – The remainder of the week.EURUSD, H4 – Even though the weekly framework is still sideways, the overall view of this pair is still considered positive. However, due to the strength of the USD yesterday, the pair pushed back to below 1.3000, after it initially propped up following the European Economic Report yesterday . Overall, the results were lower than expected. German industrial production came out at 7.8% from the forecast of 11%. France had a trade deficit more than expected at -7.1 billion, while Italian retail sales came out better than expected.Throughout June the pair was in the range of 1.1200-1.1350. In the H4-chart it has been being supported by the 50-period EMA line since yesterday. From last week we began to see higher lows as well as new highs, suggesting that it is likely to see the pair test the same high again at 1.1350. The MACD is still in the positive territory, but if we see the pair breaking through the 50-period-EMA, it could be seen that this pair will come down to test the key support zone at the 200-period EMA , which clashes with the 1.1200 low.However, in larger time frames like the weekly one, it can be seen that the EURUSD is already trying for the 6th consecutive week to pass the major Resistance level at the 200-week EMA or higher, but it looks to be stuck between the 50-week and the 200-week EMA. Hence any pullback away from the 200-week EMA could see the asset retesting the 50-week EMA line if the 1.1200 fails to provide Support.The economic calendar this week is quiet. The key data from the EUR side today is the European Commission’s economic growth forecast. On Thursday, there is the European group meeting Including numbers using the US unemployment privileges, and on Friday, US PPI numbers will be announced.Always trade with strict risk management.
