Overlaying Charts?

Recommended Posts

Hi Chad,

 

Just saw your post on Volume Breakdown. You mentioned you plotted it 3 times? How do I overlay the indicator on top of each other? Thanks

 

You can actually simply drag and drop indicators between panes. That's really the easiest way to do it. However, when adding indicators, you'll also see a choice in the lower left corner of the "Add Indicator" window which allows you to choose which pane the indicator is added to. Standalone indicators like VB will default to "new pane" but you can change that to the pane of existing bars or indicators.

 

There is a 13-minute video at www.linnsoft.com/videos which covers many different aspects of technical indicators, including this one. Here is the direct link:

ST - when you want to add another indicator to the chart but you want to overlay it on an already existing indicator (so for example putting two variants of the VB in one pane) specify the pane in which you want to place the new indicator as being the same pane the existing indicator is in - see attachment.

James,

 

I can't tell exactly how you have that setup unless you share definition, or you share to charthub. However, a few things that could be going on there...you might have the Delta bars drawing behind the Buy and Sell Volume bars...and therefore getting covered up. You can either right-click in the pane title, or shift-click in the horizontal scale to the right, to bring up the element order prefs window. Try adjusting the element order. You can also right-click on any histogram and choose "send to back".

 

Other problem could be that you just have the colors set the same for both the buy volume and the positive delta. Try adjusting the colors of the different VBs so they stand out.

 

If none of this works, share your chart def and I'll take a look.

 

Here are instructions on sharing a chart if you're not familiar with that:

Does the delta only work on live data. Or can you for example pull up a daily 1 year $dji chart and analyze that volume breakdown as well?

 

If you can do the latter, could you guys post chart of the DJI daily 1 year.

I was hoping to not spend so much but InvestorRT is really looking so flexible it will make TS cry. And with being able to pick my own data vendor I'm not stuck with TS and their issues. You're almost leaving me no choice here. :)

 

Thanks

Volume Breakdown works not only on live data, but also on historical data. Tick data is however required in order to compute VB. Different data feeds will allow you to download different amounts of tick data. But with Investor/RT, after that initial download, you can choose to retain as much tick data as you like, so each day you will add one day to the amount of tick data you have on hand (and that you can use for VB).

 

You are asking to see the VB values on a daily chart of DJI...for a year back? I may have a hard time coming up with that much tick data. VB also requires that the bid and ask....which our data vendors do provide on historical downloads. That might be why TS doesn't allow delta to be computed on historical data....it might not have the historical bid/ask.

I will leave the final word on the question to the company, but this is what I think is correct. You need tick data to get the correct VB numbers (it tracks which side of the price each trade hits on). I don't know if you could save these numbers so that after a period of time you get a long-term chart (daily say) with correct VB figures on it, but you cannot just call up a daily chart now for a year andget the correct VB numbers. Looks like I was a bit slow with the answer...

A couple more notes on VB......I spent a GREAT deal of time on this particular indicator (Volume Breakdown), making sure it is reliable and efficient. It has to process every tick, but does so very quickly....merging that tick in with the data that has already been computed. VB has become very very popular with our user base, and has been hammered on pretty thoroughly. It's much more than an indicator that just computes the delta....it allows you to do cumulative delta (for each session or for entire chart), to compute any indicator or statistic on top of the delta (or buy/sell volume) values, to chart the "trade speed" (volume per bar, ticks per bar, second per bar, etc) and much more.

 

One other note on VB...it is currently "Bundled" with Market Profile...although this will likely change in the near future. So in order to activate VB, you have to activate MP.

I also wanted to point out another somewhat hidden delta-related feature.

 

Both Trendlines and Zig Zag lines can be labelled with the net delta of each line / leg. Here is an example:

The key to making this work, is to add the Volume Breakdown to the chart...and within the preferences of the Zig Zag or Trendline indicators, just specify "Label With: Total Delta". With trendlines, this allows you to quickly measure the delta formed between any two bars on the chart.

Chad,

 

Has Volume Breakdown been "unbundled" and made available as a standalone option for those of us who might not want or need Market Profile?

Chad, In the attached pic can you see how the two different software packages get different VB levels on the same timeframe chart and the same data supplier (they're running esignal through TS).

I'm thinking about getting IRT but I'm not sure which is right.

The TS indicator uses your same approach in it's calculation as your VB.

Any ideas?

thanks.

JJ,

 

I think it's probably more likely that the tickbars themselves are responsible for any differences, rather than the VB indicator itself. It can be difficult to reproduce the same tickbars between two products, as many things can throw tickbar charts out of synch....just a single missing tick will cause the bars to be different. But the tickbars are also heavily reliant on where it chart started building the tickbars (at being of current session, 5 sessions ago, etc). If you want to do a true comparison of VB, comparing 1-min bars would probably be a better measure. The way we classify trades as buys or sells is pretty straightforward...if it trades at or above ask, it's a buy..at or below bid, it's a sell...and then there is some proprietary code for how we handle trades between bid and ask (which is also reliant on previous trades)...which could be coming into play here...although you shouldn't really see many trades between the bid and ask...and it's more likely due to the fact that you're comparing tickbars.

    • Date: 23rd February 2024. Market Recap – Global Rally Pushing Valuations To Record Highs Across the US, Europe & Japan. Economic Indicators & Central Banks:   It was all about Nvidia. Nvidia got a $277 billion 1-day boost to its market capitalization yesterday – the biggest single-session increase in value ever!(the previous record was a $197 billion gain by Meta Platforms Inc.) Treasuries continued to lose ground, hurt by the surge in risk appetite with yields cheapening to the highest levels since late last year. The solid jobless claims report, which followed on the heels of the hawkish bent in the FOMC minutes, added to expectations the FOMC will leave rates in restrictive territory into June at least. A weaker than expected S&P Global services headline saw rates dip briefly. Japanese markets are closed for a public holiday. Fed Governor Christopher Waller: ”interest rate cuts should be delayed at least two more months, but indications of healthy demand and concerns over supplies could boost prices in the coming days.” Today: Germany IFO business climate & GDP, ECB publishes 1- and 3-Year inflation expectations survey. Market Trends:   Massive global rally in risk that saw the NASDAQ(USA100) jump 2.96% to 16,041.6, falling just short of the historic peak of 16,057 from November 2021. The S&P500 (USA500) climbed 2.1% to 5100, and the Dow (USA30) was up 1.18% to 39,069, both marking new records. Asian stock markets today continued to move higher, with the global rally pushing valuations to record highs across the US, Europe and Japan. The Nikkei jumped a further 2.2%. Financial Markets Performance:   The USDIndex was little changed at 103.80, below 104 for the first time since February 2. The Yen has performed the worst so far this year, experiencing a 6.3% decrease against the Dollar, as investors sought higher yields in other currencies, anticipating that Japan’s interest rates would remain close to zero for the foreseeable future. The Yen weakened against the Euro, Sterling, and other currencies this week, marking its 4th consecutive weekly decline against the US Dollar. USOil slipped to $77.85 per barrel after Fed speeches indicated delay to rate cuts. Gold dipped to $2021 per ounce. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date: 22nd February 2024. In-Depth Analysis – AUDUSD – Investors Expect Fed to Cut First! AUDUSD – Economists Do Not Expect the RBA to Cut Until 2024’s Third Quarter.   The Aussie Dollar increases 0.67% and sees its strongest gain this week so far. The exchange rate trades at its highest price since February 2nd. The FOMC’s Meeting Minutes indicate the Federal Reserve is not yet willing to cut interest rates. FOMC Members are cautious about cutting rates too fast. Australia’s Wage Price Index for the latest quarter continues to read higher than where the RBA would like to see it. The Reserve Bank of Australia advise the regulator would not consider cutting interest rates until the second half of 2024. The Australian Economy weakens but not enough to pressure the RBA! Inflation remains moderately higher than the US! AUDUSD – Technical Analysis The AUDUSD is witnessing one of the lowest spreads amongst the major currency pairs and is seeing higher levels of volatility. The Australian Dollar has been rising against the USD for seven consecutive days, similar to the NZD and the Euro. However, the AUD is performing better than the GBP, JPY and CHF against the Dollar. However, investors should note that the bullish price movement is largely being driven by the weakness in the Dollar. The US Dollar Index has fallen 0.50% this week and trades at a 3-week low. The Australian Dollar on the other hand is witnessing mainly bullish price movements depending on the currency pair. The Australian Dollar is increasing against the GBP, Euro, Yen, and the CHF but is declining against the NZD. So here we can see there are no major conflicts between the two individual currencies. However, investors will need to continue monitoring the US Dollar Index and price condition of the AUD against other major currencies. The AUDUSD is trading above the 75-Bar Exponential Moving Average and above the “Neutral” level on the RSI as well as the Bollinger Bands. These three factors indicate a further bullish trend as the asset is yet to be read “overbought” on most oscillators. In addition to this, the asset has managed to break above the resistance level and the previous high, meaning the continuation of the traditional wave pattern. The only negative indication when evaluating technical analysis is the measurements of the previous 4 impulse waves. The average bullish wave size is 0.87% and the largest has been 0.92%. The current impulse wave reads 0.87%. Therefore, if the pattern is to continue the price may retrace soon, even if it is going to continue rising thereafter. However, this cannot be known for sure. AUDUSD – Fundamental Analysis In the Meeting Minutes, representatives stated more fear about the remaining risks of a premature decline in rates than about a persistent period of high interest rates. Against this background, markets are reconsidering the timing of a possible easing of the regulator’s position in May and June. According to the CME Groups FedWatch Tool, the likelihood of a May adjustment is currently anticipated at 30-35%. A strong possibility is considered anything above 70%. Next week’s Core PCE Price Index will be key for the Dollar as this will be the last inflation reading for the month and short-term future. If the PCE Price Index is also higher, this means all 5 inflation readings beat expectations. As a result, the Dollar may rise. However, the Dollar’s issue is that the market’s risk profile is high, and many expect the Fed to cut first. Therefore, the Dollar may continue to struggle unless other central banks become more dovish. Even though the Reserve Bank of Australia’s interest rate is lower than the Fed’s, analysts expect the Fed to cut first. Even though GDP Growth in Australia is weakening, the economy is still performing better than Europe and the UK. In addition to this, inflation is still above 4.00%, which is extremely high for the Aussie and the Unemployment Rate has risen to 4.1% which is still manageable according to analysts there. Therefore, most analysts believe the RBA will cut in the third quarter and after the Fed. Therefore, fundamental analysis is slightly in the Aussie’s favor here, but technical analysis will need to continue signalling a rise. Always trade with strict risk management.
