Playing with the VMAR`s open research

Recommended Posts

Hi Shreem

 

I think Blu-Ray will be doing a version for another platform.

But I have not kept up with who is doing what.

Ensign did get mentioned somewhere as being similar to another platform in common use, so there is hope for an Ensign version.

Minister for beach chairs, umbrellas and light refreshments?

Secretary for golf?

 

Umm, other things are catching up on me.

Gunna cost me a few days.

Vma4 might be next week.

Think I have got to the end of chasing turbo now, far enough anyway.

It is like we now have a starting position to go on from.

If that makes sense.

Maybe not so much rush for the next stuff.

Yeah, scalpetic.

Think it will need another line, bit more slow and steady, so the trader can better judge the market.

 

Maybe do an addon indicator that shows a line joining Close prices.

Or maybe Hi Lo Close, 3 lines to show volatility coz the fantail covers up the candles in MT4. These lines would be on top of the fantail where you can see them.

But could get cluttered up on screen...

Hello PYenner, thank fro your reply. Happy to know that Ensign was mentionned. Hope an indicator for VMAR will come out some time in the future for this platform.

 

I do really appreciated all the help that you give Walterw in developping indicators for his great method.

 

Using already rainbow sclaping of Linuxtroll for some time, I see that the addition that Walterw is putting in adding the concept of VMAR is a great development.

 

Will be very interested to see the VMA4 next week for MT4. I will use MT4 in the maintime that one get created for Ensign.

 

Again, a great thank to you and Walterw for all the great posts that you put on VMAR.

 

Sincerely

 

Shreem:)

Hi Walter,

 

Thanks very much for these threads Walter. I really appreciate the careful, thoughtful descriptions you have presented outlining this trading method. I find the videos clear and concise… great visualizations. Gracious of you to share.

 

Special thanks as well to PYenner for the time and effort you have put in and shared with this community. Without your contributions I would be sidelined, as I know absolutely nothing about programming and am probably too thick to learn. I particularly appreciate the templates and indicators in metatrader format.

 

With respect, I’d like to post this chart with a candle formation originally created by “Goldenequity” and introduced to the forex community on this board… this post:

 

http://www.forex-tsd.com/suggestions-trading-systems/7914-randycandles-information.html (post 577 is Godenequity’s)

 

As you can see, he uses dinapoli mas and looks for what he calls waterfalls and fans… a distant cousin to the rainbows you use.

 

I find the RandyCandles (Goldenequity’s first name is Randy I think) a very useful visual aid and am thinking they may help here in timing trades. (or at least provide a great visual.)

 

If you find this post off track or valueless, my apologies.

 

Again, thank you both.

 

Regards

Thank you sundowner (there was a movie by that name many many years ago)

 

Your post is welcome and appreciated, ideal stuff.

Yes I have hopes of building in visual aids too, so it is timely.

 

As for being thick, yes been there, now doing it in public, <sigh>...

It has been quite a challenge and there have been many mistakes.

Much confusion.

But slowly we get there, with a little help from our friends, as the song goes.

 

Regards to you Sundowner.

Thanks for the welcome PYenner and Walter.

 

Here are the templates and a detailed look at the use of RandyCandles posted on another site by one of the contributors. Sorry, too lazy this morning to look up his name. Yes Walter, they are heiken.

 

Basically, Goldenequity looks for specific candle formations which he calls zorros and chili peppers (alert candles) at market turning points...your laddering, for example. The document explains in detail.

Thank you sundowner

 

My view of what goes on inside our version keeps shifting.

The ADX approach we use has a problem with the horizontals lasting too long or even happening when they shouldn't.

I first thought the ADX worked in terms of prices, swings, but it now looks like one important part is effectively looking for long candles.

Long candles do go with laddering, but to have the length of the last longest laddering candle controlling how long the horizonal lasts is a bit single minded.

Trying to find a more logical approach, get more control.

 

Also didn't know MT4 lets you control the candles, that might fix our problem with the fantail covering up the candles maybe.

 

Thank you

One last post about timing a trade with RandyCandles and then I'll leave it to you folks to decide if it's worth pursuing. The difficulty with these candle formations is that the move following the entry candle (the candles following the alert candle) is sometimes not worth trading and I haven't sorted out how to know the difference.

 

These two charts are examples of timing trades using RC's. The first chart is a series of trades following the laddering that work very well as you will see, the other chart is of some trades didn't work out well.

 

Cheers

Yes sundowner

 

It has a lot of potential but that one major limitation.

Walters inspiration with the Horizontal effect is I believe all about just that problem and his use of 5min charts seems to help eliminate the less certain entries. But less sensible people like me tend to want to trade anything that moves, impatient. Quality entries are what it is all about.

 

Can I confess to being a bit phobic about heiken?

It confused the heck out of me the first time I tried to make some sense of it.

It was sad to see the thread on Randy fizzle out.

Maybe I am not the only one that finds heiken tough to penetrate :crap:

 

I don't know what will come out of this project yet.

But there sure is potential.

Cheers

Hi PYenner,

 

I couldn't agree more. Walter's inspiration about the HE is what attracted me to these threads. Brilliant really.

 

I look forward to your further posts and hope you will consider this brief digression into RCs as light diversion. I did not mean to shift your focus.

The slowest of the 3 lines is similar to VMA1.

So I'm attaching the fantail to that and maybe it will be ok on 5 min as well.

 

The middle line is like VMA3.

 

Not sure what color to make the lines, oh well....

If there are no strange problems, it shouldn't be much longer.

Hope it will be worth the wait.:)

Cheers

Peel a banana...

 

FantailVMA4 for evaluation.

 

Add FantailVMA4.tpl to the chart as a template (fantail).

Then add FantailVMA4Turbo.mq4 as an indicator (3 vma lines).

FantailVMA4.mq4 gets called by the template file, you don't need to add it to the chart.

 

Happy Trading :)

 

Arggh---

Another bug, will have to delete FantailVMA4.tpl

and repost it later when fixed

sorry yet again.

    • Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Breaches More Resistance Zones, As Bulls Gain More Grounds Key Resistance Levels: $275, $300, $350 Key Support Levels: $200, $160, $120 BCH/USD Price Long-term Trend: Bullish Bitcoin Cash has maintained its bullish run as the resistance at $240 and $260 were broken. Unfortunately, BCH reached a high of $280 but was resisted. The bears pulled back to the low of $260. The market is holding above $260 support. On the upside, if the bulls sustain price above $260 and the $280 resistance is broken, BCH is likely to reach a high of $350. On the other hand, where the bulls fail to overcome the current resistance, price will fall to the low above $260. BCH/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: Bitcoin cash is above 80% range of the daily stochastic. This means that BCH is in the overbought region of the market. It also means that sellers may emerge at the $280 overbought region. The downward move has already began. Although, the extend of the downward move is unclear. The 26-day EMA is acting as resistance to the coin BCH/USD Medium-term Trend: Bullish On the 4-Hour chart, BCH is in an uptrend. BCH is making a series of higher highs and higher lows. BCH has reached a high of $280. The price is retracing from a high of $280 to a low of $260. BCH/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading BCH has risen to level 54 of the daily Relative Strength Index period 14. BCH is above the centerline 50 which means that it is in an uptrend zone. The moving averages are sloping upward indicating the uptrend. General Outlook for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Bitcoin Cash has moved closer to the uptrend zone as the market reaches a high of $280.The bulls are yet to break above the current resistance after being resisted twice. The price is currently consolidating above $260 to resume an upward move. Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • GBPJPY Recovers Momentum Beyond The Level At 134.00 GBPJPY Price Analysis – April 8 The British pound got some momentum and pushed the GBPJPY cross to fresh session highs, above the level of 134.70. The claim that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been reported to be in a stable state, although he continued in ICU, appeared to be the only variable that contributed considerable strength to the pound. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 147.95, 138.68, 134.72 Support Levels: 130.49, 127.54, 122.75 GBPJPY Long term Trend: Ranging In the broader context, ongoing development implies that market behavior at a level of 122.75 (low) is simply a horizontal consolidation trend which has been concluded at 147.95 level. Bigger downward trend from level 195.86 (high) and that from level 251.09 (high) may continue. The 122.75 level break may approach the 195.86 to 122.75 forecast of 61.8 percent from the next level of 147.95 to 102.76. The trend would in any way stay bearish as long as the level of resistance stays at 147.95. GBPJPY Short term Trend: Ranging GBPJPY stays in the corrective increase from the level of 123.99 and the trend remains intact. Another increase may be observed, but the upside would be constrained by a retraction of 61.8 percent from 144.95 to 123.99 at 136.92 levels to restart downward movement. On the downside, a break of 129.85 minor support levels can alter the downside bias for a low level of 123.94 retests. The sustained break of the level at 137.00 may, nevertheless, improve the chances of trend reversal and shift emphasis to the level of resistance 144.95. Instrument: GBPJPY Order: Sell Entry price: 134.72 Stop: 135.00 Target: 133.39 Source: https://learn2.trade 
    • Date : 9th April 2020. FX Update – April 9 – 4 Key Events Today.Narrow ranges have been prevailing in currency markets ahead of some big event risk items on today’s calendar.Asian and European stock markets, and US index futures, have retained buoyancy amid hopes that the peak global coronavirus infection rate may be approaching, which could mark the end of “phase 1” of the pandemic, with “phase 2” being how to exit from lockdowns while there is, as yet, no vaccine or cure.EURUSD has posted a 40-pip range so far, with a two-day low at 1.0840 marking the downside limit. USDJPY has been idling in a 26-pip range, with 109.06 marking the upside cap. Cable has settled in the mid-to-upper 1.2300s, below yesterday’s one-week high at 1.2421. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains in intensive care for what is now a fourth day. Official updates, as of yesterday, reported that he was responding well to treatment, but after downplaying his condition ahead of him being admitted to hospital and then an ICU, there is a degree of uncertainty about the accuracy of this. AUDUSD has edged out a 24-day high at 0.6246, buoyed by the current optimism in stock and commodity markets. USDCAD has posted a range of 1.4000-14054, holding within yesterday’s range. Ahead today, attention will be on:   The recommencement of the EU finance ministers’ meeting, at 15:00 GMT after yesterday’s meeting failed to find an accord on a region-wide fiscal plan to offset the impact of virus-containment measures. The OPEC+ group of oil producing nations will also begin its teleconference meeting, from 14:00 GMT.Markets are looking for an agreement to slash crude output by 10 mln barrels a day. There is significant scepticism among oil analysts that even a cut of this magnitude would be sufficient to offset the level of recent demand destruction. In the US, the weekly jobless claims report will once again take top billing (it’s expected to once again paint a dismal picture), along with ongoing deliberations in the US Congress on fiscal relief measures. Finally, FED Chair Powell is scheduled on a conference call from the Brookings Institution in Washington DC.

    • Date : 8th April 2020. April 8 – Europe and EUR update.Sentiment collapsed further in European session on the news that EU finance ministers failed to reach deal and also on the announcement from German institutes, which they estimated nearly 10% contraction in Q2, the sharpest decline since records began in 1970. This topped the concerns of pandemic and related shutdown of the economy.EU leaders will meet again tomorrow. Discussions on how to finance a European wide response package to the pandemic have not yet found a compromise. Demands for Eurobonds clashing with the red lines against mutualising debt in countries such as Germany, which would make the introduction of new financing measures a lengthy affair even if officials were to agree to such a step. The southern European states (especially Italy) are keen to have debt mutualisation (“coronabonds”) as part of the package. The most likely outcome is a use of ESM funds to finance immediate aid measures, coupled with funds from the EU budget and the EIB investment bank to finance economic measures not just through the immediate crisis, but to kick start the recovery once lock downs have been lifted.Last but not least for European economy, is the fact that ECB lowers collateral standards, to keep credit flowing. The central bank announced that it will temporarily lower standards for the collateral that banks can use to access ECB funds. The move is aimed at keeping credit flowing through the crisis and will also allow Greek debt to be used. Furthermore the haircut applied to collateral, which will allow banks to borrow more money against the same amount of collateral. As a result the ECB will take on more risk onto its own balance sheet, but the hope is that by strengthening banks’ access to funds the central bank can boost lending to households and businesses. For Greece it will also give the government more room to finance its measures to get the economy through the pandemic. The central bank stressed that the “measures are temporary for the duration of the pandemic crisis” and will be reassessed later in the year.Hence as risk-on has turned today into a risk-off, the EUR weakens so far today on USD strength. It will be very important for the long term stability of the bloc that there will be a clear signal of solidarity at tomorrow’s juncture.EURUSD concurrently declined by almost 0.5% in making a low at 1.0829, resuming the bearish outlook in the daily picture for the asset. Yesterday’s rally spread concerns whether the EURUSD possible trend revernsal however today’s swing lower again along with the decline for 7th consecutive day below 20- and 50-day SMA suggest that yesterday’s rally was just a correction.In the 1-hour chart, EURUSD is moving within a tight downchannel since 1.0925 peak, with lower ups and downs seen since then. Hence in the near term any recovery within the channel could be interpret as a correction prior a pullback. Intraday momentum indicators are mixed with RSI at neutral zone posting lower lows since yesterday, while MACD lines have been zeroed suggesting that bulls have lost the control today. Additionally, the mark of a hummingbird by Bollinger bands pattern, which indicates a bearish signal in the daily chart, could signal further weakness in the near term.In order the near term picture to turn to positive again, the hourly RSI needs to sustain a move above 50, while we need to see a swing outside the channel and above the confluence of the latest up fractal and the 20-hour EMA, at 1.0892. Meanwhile, in the medium term outlook, the asset is facing a strong Resistance area at 1.0950-1.0965 (50% Fib. retracement from 1.1146 downleg and 50-day SMA). A decisive breakout above this area could imply to the continuation of a recovery for the asset.Always trade with strict risk management.
