IRT Features

Recommended Posts

Sure, you can either stretch the main IRT task window across all monitors.... OR, any window (charts, quotepages, etc) can be made "floating" and then be dragged outside the IRT task window.

Hey Chad, two questions now that I'm up and running.

 

First, can I get volume levels to appear in the right pane like price? Please see pic for further explanation of what I mean.

 

Second, how do I get candles like the second pic that I took off your site?

 

thanks

JJ

JJ,

 

If you double-click on the volume bars in the lower pane, to bring up the preferences for that indicator, you'll see a "Label Current Value" checkbox at the bottom. Check that. You can specify the default behavior for the labelling in "setup: preferences: charts: general" window.

 

That chart is displayed in "Presentation Mode". Just right-click in the message area just below your main toolbar, and choose "Presentation Mode" to toggle that mode on/off. Here's a little more info on that:

Incidentally, I'm working on some additional aesthetic improvements in 9.0.1:

Watermarks, two-tone backgrounds, etc.

James, if you're referring to the profiles you saw in the last chart I posted, that's already available. There's an indicator called the "Profile Indicator". That particular Profile Indicator was setup to plot 30-minute profiles on 1-minute bars....and drawn as "Hollogram"....but it has a lot of flexibility....can plot 1 day profiles, multiday profiles, etc.

 

Here's more info:

Hi again Chad,

I've looked on the site and watched the Market Profile vidoes but can't find how to condense the info down so the whole days profile fits on the screen without scrolling up. On a bar chart ctrl + up does the trick but not in MP. Can it be done?

thanks

JJ,

 

Hold down the shift-key on the keyboard while either a) using the mouse scroll wheel, or b) operating the up/down arrows on the keyboards. This will allow you to zoom in/out on the profile and fit more in vertically and horizontally. Hope that's what you're looking for.

Actually...in traditional charts (candle/bar), ctrl isn't needed...just up/down key (or mouse wheel) will do it.

 

We used the up/down key and scroll wheel for vertical scrolling in MP charts....so the shift was required for zooming.

 

And although there is no vertical scrollbar in traditional charts, you can scroll vertically by dragging the right half of the vertical scale up down. When you do this, your scale goes into "manual" mode (you''ll see an M in upper right corner of scale). Just click that M to take scaling back to automatic. This should all be covered in the Traditional Chart (& MP Chart) videos at www.linnsoft.com/videos

Hey Chad, I've got an issue with my Value Area Indicator on my candle chart having different values than my MP chart. Is there a way to resolve this?

thanks

 

JJ, there are a few different methods used for computing a "Value Area". That "Value Area Indicator" actually predates the Market Profile chart. You can find more information on how the VA indicator computes it's values here:

 

http://www.linnsoft.com/tour/techind/va.htm

 

But it does not use the tpo-based method that the Market Profile chart does. If you want to match the MP values, use either the TPO Indicator or the Profile Indicator.

Good morning Chad,

 

I'm wondering if I can get the time and sales window to float? The only way I can find to bring it up is with the toolbar on my MP chart and can't find the option to float it.

Is there a way?

thanks

JJ

Right-click inside the Time/Sales window to bring up the T/S preferences. There is a "Floating Window" checkbox in there. Check it.

Good morning Chad, does IRT have a market depth type of window graphically showing bid and ask at say 4 levels away from price? It's a feature I had in tradestation so just wondering if I have it now with IRT?

thanks

JJ

    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Mexican Peso
      COT Change (52W) / C – 28%, LS – 27%, SS – 31% /
      FTG Score / D -29.6, W -18, M -46.1 /
      Huge change in Traders positions (bullish cot signal) and the stresses in the market are also becoming more and more bullish. Because of the FTG scores I’d be neglecting this market for now. Swiss Franc
      COT Extreme / C – 567, LS – 563 report, SS – All Time COT extreme /
      FTG Score / D -38.6, W 10.2, M -14 /
      The extreme became even greater than last week, but the price was unable to continue its decline. Maybe the downtrend is over? I’d be betting on that more… Since we have still a negative FTG score (daily), I may wait until it becomes positive. Australian Dollar
      COT Extreme / C - 119, LS – 118, SS - 120 report COT extreme /
      FTG Score / D -22.3, W -12.2, M -33.1 /
      Maybe not as large extreme as for CHF, but still big enough to consider taking a position on the LONG side. Same as in case of MXP and CHF, it would be nice to see supporting FTG scores. All the best,

    • Weekly Trading Forecasts for Major Pairs (May 21 - 25, 2018)    Here’s the market outlook for the week:   EURUSD Dominant bias: Bearish This pair trended downwards last week, testing the support line at 1.1750. The market went essentially sideways on Thursday and Friday, and may go below the support line at 1.1750, to target another support line at 1.1700. About 250 pips have been lost this month, and it just seems to be the beginning. The outlook on EUR pairs is bearish for this week (EUR would be seen going downwards versus major currencies).     USDCHF Dominant bias: Bullish This trading instrument is bullish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. Price has been consolidating in the past two weeks; whereas that is not strong enough to render the recent bullish bias useless. There is going to be a breakout at last, but the movement to the upside will no longer be a serious thing. While USDCHF is supposed to go upwards, there would be a challenge to the upwards move, because CHF is expected to gain serious stamina this week (major currencies will drop versus it). This means that the coming strength in CHF may hinder USDCHF from getting seriously pushed further northwards.    GBPUSD Dominant bias: Bearish The Cable is bearish in the long-term, but neutral in the short-term. The bearish movement that started last month, has continued this month (although price has been ranging in the short-term). There remains a valid Bearish Confirmation Pattern in the market, despite the fact that it has been ranging in the last two weeks. A breakout is imminent, which would most probably favor bears. The accumulation territories at 1.3450, 1.3400 and 1.3350 could be reached thus week. . USDJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The bullish movement that was witnessed last week has saved the ongoing bullish bias in the market. The bullish movement started in March 2018 and it has held out till now. The supply level at 111.00 was tested before price closed below it on Friday. This week, there is a high probability that the market would continue going upwards, reaching the supply levels at 111.00, 111.50 and 112.00.     EURJPY Dominant bias: Bearish    The bias on this cross is bearish, but it is a precarious bias. What the market did last week was a zigzag movement without a clear directional propensity. Price moved upwards, downwards, and upwards again, within the supply zone at 131.50 and the demand zone at 129.50. A 200 –pip movement to the upside or to the downside would easily change the bias to bullish or bearish, and that is exactly what is expected this week.     GBPJPY Dominant bias: Bullish The market is bullish, at least, in the very short-term. The current bullishness (which is not very strong), started on May 8, and it has been dragged on in spite of constant interferences from bears. Price succeeded in moving further northwards last week, almost reaching the supply zone at 150.00, before closing below it on May 18. This week, too much weakness in GBP could frustrate a clean bullish movement. Nevertheless, the supply zone at 150.00, might once again, be breached.    This forecast is concluded with the quote below:   “According to Kermit the Frog, it’s not easy being green. For skillful traders, it’s not hard to be green. May your trades be green.” – attributed        Source: www.tallinex.com
