It projects what the volume would be at bar close based on how much as occurred so far.

 

This will not work in TOS, their code does not allow intrabar resampling (you cannot get it to recalculate every second) it will only calculate when a new bar is made. If you want to gauge volume more closely I suggest using a small size tick chart and watching volume there.

... on a five min chart... i find it helpful to use three bar volume....

.... each volume bar shows as the sum of the last two volume bars and the current volume bar....

....TOS new active trader layout ....

 

.... shows how much volume happened at each price level....

.... it is a bit like market profile....

...it allows you to see at what prices the most volume occurred....

 

....anyone else using it in this way ?

... open your "trade grid"

.... then choose "active trader" as your visual style....

... then just look at the "volume" column

 

... market profile makes a visual representation of volume....

.... this just shows the total volume for each price.....

 

....although.... i would think that someone with a little programming skill could come up with a market profile code..... just based on this data....

 

ANYONE ? ... ready to program market profile for TOS ?

 

elovemer,

where in TOS do you se this information?

i can´t find it anywere...:confused:

TOS market profile what do you think ?

 

Better than nothing but not market profile in reality. It's a volume profile...not scalable that easily. It's not linked to the chart so while you can expand or shrink the profile it still just dosen't match the chart in my experience.

 

I have had lag issues with my TOS charting lately and am looking at going to sierra or ensign again to get full profile charting.

 

Anyone else had issues with TOS data as of the last few months?

Does anyone has the TTM trend indicator for TOS???

 

}

inputs: CompBars(6), UpColor(Blue), DnColor(Red), BarWidth(1);

 

vars: haClose(0), haOpen(0), color(0);

 

if BarNumber = 1 then

begin

haOpen = open;

haClose = (O+H+L+C)/4;

end;

 

if BarNumber > 1 then

begin

haClose = (O+H+L+C)/4;

haOpen = (haOpen [1] + haClose [1])/2 ;

 

{ .................................................. .............................. }

 

if haClose > haOpen then color = UpColor

else color = DnColor;

 

for value1 = 1 to CompBars

begin

if haOpen <= MaxList(haOpen[value1],haClose[value1]) and

haOpen >= MinList(haOpen[value1],haClose[value1]) and

haClose <= MaxList(haOpen[value1],haClose[value1]) and

haClose >= MinList(haOpen[value1],haClose[value1]) then

color = color[value1];

end;

 

{ .................................................. .............................. }

 

 

// plotPB(haOpen,haClose,"heikin-ashi",color);

plotPB(High,Low,"heikin-ashi",color);

SetPlotWidth(1,BarWidth);

SetPlotColor(1,color);

 

end;

{ .................................................. .............................. }

 

This is trend indicator for tradestation can somebody help me translated to TOS language

Where does the code below says that Bollinger Bands is set with (20, 2) and Keltner channel is with (20, 1.5)? The closest I see is marked in yellow below.

 

Just want to know what parameters have been used in BB and KC, in the code below.

 

Thanks,

 

Nidhi

 

 

There were a couple of extra spaces, and the bollingerbands reference was broken. This should work:

 

declare lower;

input Length = 20;

input price = close;

######################

def e1 = (Highest(High, length) + Lowest(low, length)) / 2 + Average(close, length);

def osc = Inertia(price - e1 / 2, length);

plot oscp = osc;

 

def diff = reference BollingerBandsSMA(length = 20)."upperband" - reference KeltnerChannels."Upper_Ba nd";

plot mid = 0;

mid.assignValueColor(if diff >= 0 then Color.UPTICK else Color.DOWNTICK);

 

#oscp.assignValueColor(if osc[1] < osc[0] then Color.CYAN else Color.magenta);

oscp.assignValueColor(if osc[1] < osc[0] then

if osc[0] >= 0 then

#UpPos

createColor(0, 255, 255) else

#UpNeg

createColor(204, 0, 204)

else if osc[0] >= 0 then

#DnPos

createColor(0, 155, 155) else

#DnNeg

createColor(255, 155, 255));

 

oscp.setPaintingStrategy( PaintingStrategy.HISTOGRAM);

mid.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.POINTS);

I'm not too sure what you guys are talking about, but if your looking for the tick and/or makret profile TOS has that already built in. Letme know if thats what your looking for and I'll let you know how to find it

    • First, we need diligence to successfully implement any financial plan. In the example above, those with livestock are advised to carefully monitor the state and condition of their animals. If an animal becomes ill, it needs special care. Insufficient food or water for livestock requires immediate attention. A farmer with herds must look after his animals if they are to survive and the household is to prosper. How does this apply to those of us who aren’t farmers or ranchers? The fundamental lesson is that we cannot expect financial success by simply devising a plan and then blissfully ignoring the factors that affect it. Instead, we must know where, how and why we spend our money and what is happening with our assets. If we ignore this principle of diligently monitoring our finances, we will find ourselves making poor decisions and spending money we don’t have.
    • I have been working with automated charts for about ten years now, with TradeStation's EasyLanguage.  I don't do the programming, but I pay somoeone to do the work for me.  I have had well over one-hundred strategies created over the years, and several hundreds of different versions of the strategies.  I often trade live; the US equities market.   An old strange problem that I used to experience on rare occasions just re-surfaced today; when I am trading live, and the entry order does not show up on the chart at all (I always check both boxes for fully automated trading (no confirmation necessary).  When I click off the live trading, the trade suddenly appears where it should on the chart, but the live orders were not sent, so it obviously does me no good.  To make matters worse, the only time that this strange thing seems to happens is on the REALLY profitable trades!  I am using one-minute time frames, and my chart is set up for 10 days.  When I use this setting with backtesting, all of the trades show up.  If anyone could please help me with this very frustrating issue, you would be a "lifesaver"!  Thank you very much.
