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.

Walter and PYenner

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...

please tell me your opinions.... cheers Walter.

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.

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 :

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.

    • havent done any crypto withdrawals or deposits, maybe support can answer that... Im more if a traditional trader, straight up regular connection tbh. 
    • Date : 19th August 2019. Events to Look Out for This Week. Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.Monday – 19 August 2019   Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September. Tuesday – 20 August 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance. Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1. Wednesday – 21 August 2019   Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020. FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence. Thursday – 22 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency. Friday- 23 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • AUDUSD Market Dragged Lower on Bears Dominance   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 15 The bears were in full control moving the market lower in the prior session, although in the present session we see the pair found buyers around the level at 0.6748 for the 4th day in a row while the pairs bear dominance is evident falling to lowest close since the beginning of the year.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7297, 0.7207, 0.7085 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD long term Trend: Bearish In the bigger picture of the daily time frame, the decline from the level at 0.7207 (high) is seen as resuming the long term downtrend from 0.7297 (February high). Firm break of the level at 0.6876 (low) should confirm this bearish view.   On observation, further fall may be seen to the level at 0.6620 (low) next. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.7085 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium-term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of a strong rebound.     AUDUSD short term Trend: Ranging On the flip side of the 4-hour chart, the AUDUSD is staying in consolidation from the level at 0.6676 and it’s intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.6827 will extend the rebound.   But upside should be limited below the level at 0.6909 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, the break of the level at 0.6676 may target 100% projections from the level at 0.7085 to 0.6827 from 0.7085 at 0.6620 level reflecting on the daily chart.
    • EURJPY Approached Recent Swing Lows, Likely to Breach the Low of the Year on the Level at 117.50   EURJPY Price Analysis – August 16   The pair depreciated again in value against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair during the mid-week breached both the upper and lower horizontal lines on the moving average 5 and 13 while completing another lap on the low in today’s session towards the low level at 117.50.     Key Levels   Resistance Levels: 123.01, 121.40, 119.91   Support Levels: 117.50, 117.00, 114.84   EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish The Daily time frame displays the EURJPY at the low, showing the pair is also testing a swing area on the level at the 117.50 to the level at 118.16 below the moving average 5 areas. The price attempted to dip below the area on August 12 to the low for the year on the level at 117.50, but could not keep the momentum going. The swing area was reestablished as support on August 13 and again today   However, buyers are trying to lean against the low level at 117.50, on the retest and hoping for a quick bounce. The trend is showing a bearish outlook in the medium and long term.   EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging On its Intraday, the bias in EURJPY remains neutral for the moment. With the level of 119.91 minor resistance intact, further decline is in favor. Although a break of the level at 117.50 will resume a large downtrend to the level at 114.84 support next.   However, on the break of 119.91 resistance will indicate short term bottoming. A stronger rebound should be seen to the horizontal resistance line now at 121.40.
    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.
