TTM/DDF Value Chart

Recommended Posts

Hello friends. I attended Dr. Clayburg's webinar, sponsoed by TTM, where he introduced the directional day filter. Here is the link to the webinar:

 

http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=BDKEF&m=1kGtTitkhcE55r&b=H9bwqdN096LC3h43oVEZ8w

 

And here is other info about it that was emailed to me:

 

For the complete, online manuals for the Directional Day Filter,

the Market Direction Indicator and the TTM Real Time Target (RTT)

Indicators click the link below.

 

http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=BDKEF&m=1kGtTitkhcE55r&b=eSl4QVeEZ1keK.aymT7vhg

 

 

John Clayburg's Indicator Tips:

 

You will find links for manual for each indicator on the frame on

the left side of the chart. You will also find links there to a

number of charts which detail the use of these trading tools.

 

After studying these examples closely, it will be obvious that

there are many ways to interpret them from a trading standpoint.

 

I find that the most reliable method of using these tools is to use

the Directional Day Filter and the Market Direction Indicator to

determine the major trend of the day. If, for example, 45 - 60

minutes into the trading day the Directional Day Filter and the

Market Direction Indicator are pointing toward an uptrend for the

rest of the day, you can feel confident in taking a long position

at this point.

 

As you know, entering a trade is only the first half of the equation

- now you need a reliable exit strategy. That's where the Real time

Target indicator becomes useful.

 

In our previous example of a long position, one can reliably place

a profit target exit on the upper green line formed by the

indicator. The red line drawn below the price bars will serve as a

stop loss point.

 

My research shows that these price targets are hit on an average of

75 % of the time, making this indicator extremely useful as a

profit taking tool. On the days when the price target is not hit,

the opposite line provides a reasonable stop loss point.

 

This short discussion is only meant as an introduction to the use

of these indicators. You should first carefully study the manuals

(see link above) before formulating a trading strategy based on

these tools.

Great stuff here!

 

I use Wealth-Lab and I am not a programmer. Anybody else here having tried to get this Value Chart indicator coded for WL(4)?

 

Also a chance to get this to work in QuoteTracker?

 

Thanks!

The creator of the Value Charts indicator was Mark Helweg. He graciously gave the code to the folks at Tradethemarkets to be used with attribution. Unfortunately TTM did some tweaking, rebranded it "TTM Value Charts" and now it's hard to find Helweg's name anywhere!

possible to get Directional Day Filter Indicator or trading system for Tradestation, please.
If you are referring to just the Clayburg DDFilter, Stratman, Abaris et al has done a copy in this thread on the TS forum.

TTM and Clayburg, on the other hand, has combined DDF with Value Charts and came up with a mixed system which you have to buy from either one of them.

thrunner,

 

Thank you for your quick answer ... that is what I am looking for ... But I have no access into a Tradestation forum ...

 

Is it possible post it here, please.

 

Thank you.

Hellweg has a website where he gives the indicator away (at least he did) but I haven't been able to re-locate it. I can't export it from TS. I can give you the easy language code:

 

 

{*******************************************************************

Description : This Indicator plots Value Chart prices.

********************************************************************}

 

Inputs:NumBars(5);

Variables:Vopen(0),VHigh(0),VLow(0),VClose(0),Var1(0),Var2(0);

Var: VcloseLam(0),ValueSOB(" "),ValueMOB(" "),ValueMOS(" "), ValueSOS(" "), ValueFair(" "), lastdate(0);

 

 

{Calcualte Value Chart}

VOpen = VChart(NumBars,Open);

VHigh = VChart(NumBars,High);

VLow = VChart(NumBars,Low);

VClose = VChart(NumBars,Close);

 

{Plot Value Chart - Disregards the first 20 bars because Omega doesn't process them correctly}

If BarNumber > Numbars then Begin

Plot1(VOpen,"VOpen");

Plot2(VHigh,"VHigh");

Plot3(VLow,"VLow");

Plot4(VClose,"VClose");

End;

 

// Value Chart Lines

Plot6(TopMid);

Plot7(BottomMid);

Here's the DDF and Value charts right from TTM. Enjoy.Value Charts calculations were actually freely given in Helwegs book and can be recreated in any programing language. I actually put them in Ninja as well just from the calc in the book.

VC was imported and compiled successfully in Multicharts, but DDF did not. Would it be possible to post a code of TTM DDF? Thank you in advance.

Here's one I've coded up using the same color reference at TTM. As with TTM's, it will only work ( give a true reading ) on a 5 min chart. It has two inputs, depending on which timezone your in, set the first one to the close of the 1st 5 min bar and the endtime input to the 60 min mark ( eg. 0935/1030 EST, 1435/1530 UK )......added bonus, it will even recolor the dots previous to the endtime mark ( Something TTM's doesn't do )

 

Hope this helps

Hi blu-ray, what is Da? ( line 27)is this Ts word?

 

thanks

 

 

Hi

 

Sorry it's just the way the code has pasted ( as there's no space after the comma ) and it does this sometimes. It's " Date" .

 

Cheers

JJ,

 

I noticed you said you had put the Value Chart into Ninja. Would you be willing to post this please ?

 

If not, I will attempt it myself but hate reinventing wheels, especially if I make it square !

 

Thanks,

Eric

Ya, not point in reinventing the wheel. I'll post it once I'm on my trading computer.

jj, thank you for the contribution, but this is probably the wrong indicator that was initially attached. There is no code for OnBarUpdate(), so it doesn't plot. Ninjatrader 6.5 doesn't support plotting of synthetic bars natively, so overriding the plot method is normally required for OHLC values :

    [Description("Enter the description of your new custom indicator here")]
   [Gui.Design.DisplayName("jjvaluecharts")]
   public class valuecharts : Indicator
   {
       #region Variables
       // Wizard generated variables
           private int numbars = 5; // Default setting for Numbars
       // User defined variables (add any user defined variables below)
       #endregion

       /// <summary>
       /// This method is used to configure the indicator and is called once before any bar data is loaded.
       /// </summary>
       protected override void Initialize()
       {
           Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Orange), PlotStyle.Dot, "Vhigh0"));
		Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Orange), PlotStyle.Dot, "Vlow0"));
		Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Orange), PlotStyle.Dot, "Vclose0"));
		Add(new Plot(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Orange), PlotStyle.Dot, "Vopen0"));

           CalculateOnBarClose	= false;
           Overlay				= false;
           PriceTypeSupported	= true;
       }

       /// <summary>
       /// Called on each bar update event (incoming tick)
       /// </summary>
[color="DarkOrange"]        protected override void OnBarUpdate()
       {
           // Use this method for calculating your indicator values. Assign a value to each
           // plot below by replacing 'Close[0]' with your own formula.

        }[/color]

There is no code in the OnBarUpdate() in my attached indicator? If not then there must have been an export problem and I'll redo. Please confirm that it came through empty.

Also I worte this with 6.0 and stopped using Ninja after that so there's no 6.5 support. But all the calculations are there and if little tweaks are needed I'm sure you can do it.

Sorry guys, when I was developing the indicator I forgot I named it "a" to keep it at the top of the list. Please let me know if this one works. If it does not then I have another version I named "b" which may be the 'final' but I think 'a' is. Sorry about the confusion. I'm pretty sure both the attached are the same but since the one named final had been in my export folder since I created the value charts I'm guessing I named it that because it was the final.

Enjoy, for real this time:)

Thanks for the link to the webinar,the problem is that OEC would not open an ELD from tradestation,I already had this.What I need is the code post for OEC to import it.I believe that this feature is fairly new to OEC and dont really know anything about coding.

I though somebody may have it coded already.

Thanks anyway,and good trading to everybody.

    • Date : 24th February 2020 Events to Look Out For Next Week 24th February 2020.The economic data has been and will continue to be overshadowed by the Covid-19 outbreak. The week ahead starts light, with the German Business Sentiment Index and Chinese Retail Sales on Monday. Leading indicators dominate the releases, but the event of the week is the US GDP and Consumer Confidence, which should shed light on whether the epidemic is visible in the data globally.Monday – 24 February 2020 Japan – Emperor’s Birthday Retail Sales (CNY, GMT N/A) – China’s retail trade growth stood at 8 percent year-on-year in December 2019. However a strong decline is expected for January, following the recent releases indicating that new car sales plunged 92% in China in February and airline traffic is expected to post the first drop since 2011 amid heavy virus containment measures in China. German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The German Business Sentiment Index released by the CESifo Group is closely watched as an early indicator of current conditions and business expectations in Germany. February’s numbers are expected to incline. Tuesday – 25 February 2020 Leading Economic Index (JPY, GMT 05:00) – The index is expected to show no change in the outlook of the Japanese economy and stand at 91.6. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 07:00) – German GDP is expected to have fallen by 0.3% on an annualized rate in the last quarter of the year, compared to 1.0% growth in Q3. Conference Board Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 15:00) – Consumer Confidence is expected to have increased to 132.4 compared to 131.6 in the previous month. Wednesday – 26 February 2020 New Home Sales (USD, GMT 15:00) – The housing recovery should extend into 2020, assuming that mortgage rates remain low and Fed policy remains accommodative. The January new home sales should post a 2.3% climb to a 710k pace, after a dip to a 694k rate in December, versus a 12-year high of 730k in September. Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 21:45) – The Trade Balance measures the difference in value between imported and exported goods and services over the reported period. It will be interesting to see whether the New Zealand trade balance already posts an impact from the epidemic. Thursday – 27 February 2020 Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – US preliminary GDP growth for Q4 is expected to trim to 2.0% from 2.1%. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 13:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.5% in January with a -4.7% drop in transportation orders. Defense orders should fall by -29%, following the 101.4% December surge. Boeing orders declined to zero planes, following a dismal 3 planes in January. Tokyo Core CPI and Unemployment Rate (JPY, GMT 23:30) – Tokyo CPI is usually a good proxy for the Japanese economy’s overall inflation rate. In February, the CPI ex Food is expected to have stood at 0.9% y/y. The unemployment rate is expected to have climbed to 2.3% from 2.2% in December. Retail Sales (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Following a precipitous 3-month dive in October -December, due to a prolonged hit to exports from soft global demand and a slide in consumer spending following a nationwide tax hike, January’s Retail Sales are expected to drop to -1.1% on a y/y basis. Friday – 28 February 2020 Unemployment Rate (EUR, GMT 08:55) – The German unemployment rate is expected to have remained at 5% in February. Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 13:00) – The German HICP inflation could rise to 0.3% m/m for February from the drop seen at -0.6% m/m last month. Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 13:30) – A sharp slowing in Canada’s real GDP growth rate to 1.2% (q/q, saar) is expected in Q4 following the 1.3% Q3 growth. This should not add to the backing for a rate cut for the Bank of Canada. Personal Income (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% rise in personal income in January is anticipated after a 0.2% increase in December, alongside a 0.2% rise in consumption that follows a 0.3% December gain.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates As Bears And Bulls Tussle Above $9,400 Support Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Bitcoin has failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls made two unsuccessful attempts at the resistance. In the recent one, the bears took the price to a low of $9,290 and then pulled back above $9,400. In the interim, the price is fluctuating above $9,400 and approaching the high of $9,800. As the bulls have failed to push above the overhead resistance, the pair may commence a range movement. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that if the bears break below the $9,400 support, selling pressure may resume. Meanwhile, BTC may continue the range-bound movement. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: After the downward move of Bitcoin, the Relative Strength Index has also fallen to level 52. This simply means the coin is above the centerline 50. In other words, BTC is in an uptrend and it is likely to rise. Price broke the support line of the ascending channel. The uptrend will be in proper perspective only when the bulls break into the ascending channel. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4- hour chart, Bitcoin now trades between $9,400 and $10,200 after the first breakdown at the $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls tested the resistance at $10,200 twice , before the downward move. The large bearish candlesticks tested a low of $9,290. However, the small body candlesticks that follow are called indecisive candlesticks. BTC/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Presently, BTC is trading above a 25% range of the daily stochastic. That is the coin is in the bullish trend zone. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping horizontally indicating a sideways trend. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) From every indication, if the bulls fail to push above the overhead resistance, the price action in October and November will repeat itself. For the past three days, BTC is still fluctuating above $9,400. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $9,700 Stop: $9,900 Target: $8,400 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
