TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

Recommended Posts

Okay...first let me apologize to all the people that have written me emails and requested the updated code that plots the PVP with VWAP and SD bands. I have used the code last year and was quite happy with it for the ES and NQ. It seemed to be very accurate and was working well for me. To make a long story short I have been very busy with a new job and a new addition to the family. I am posting it here so that anyone who wants it can get it as I don't check my emails here frequently enough and don't have time to keep sending it to different individuals. The code is open and free to all to change and repost and take as your own. I am not able to support it. I don't even remember what I did and don't have time to try and figure it out again. Here is what I was emailing to everyone with the code I will post:

 

Here it is. Only works for 1 point or less...easy to fix just too lazy and got other stuff going on right now. (Instruments that trade in increments of 1pt or less NQ and ES .25 for example)

 

Open up a 1 tick chart and insert the pvp indicator on it ('DBPVP'). Then you can minimize.

 

Then open up a minute chart (whichever you follow 2min, 3min, etc) and insert the VWAPSD indicator 'DBVWAP_SD', you should be able to see pvp, VWAP and SD bands....

 

The array is set to 3000 for s&p and nq as they have 4 ticks per point. If you use er2 or something with 10 ticks per point you will want to double array to 6000 and inside the indicator change all start points to half of that from 1500 all of them would now say 3000. Or just make it real big for everything...

 

For some reason...in the code you will see two places where there is "minmove/pricescale" depending on how your computer sees minmove...you will need to have just minmove or minmove/pricescale. So if it is not working properly it will need to be just minmove...haven't figured out why that is...we are still in beta testing but hopefully it works for you.

 

Let me say thank you to BAMBOO's ADE that I used for Tradestation. It is fantastic! Thanks to everyone here on this board for their sharing and help.

 

Hopefully this can be of use to some of you. Again I am only posting as I can't keep up with all of the emails. Also, this is what I used for myself on NQ and ES. Use at your own risk.

 

Also, you can add as many SD bands as you want. Inside the VWAP indicator you just add another plot statement just copy the 2SD plot and change the multiplier from 2 to 3. I saw someone wanted the 3SD as well. Please if someone else can assist other members with their questions I would greatly appreciate it...I just don't have the time right now. Thanks in advance.

 

Good luck to all and your trading.

 

I won't be able to answer any questions as I can't even remember what I was doing...I apologize in advance...it has been about 6 months.

 

:)

Thank you dbntina for your kind contribution. Those installing this for the first time will likely also need ELCollections by Bamboo.

To install the ELCollections library, just perform the following steps:

 

1. Unzip the zip file into a directory.

 

2. Copy the ELCollections.dll file to your TradeStation program directory (e.g. C: \Program Files\TradeStation 8.0 (Build xxxx)\Program).

 

3. Import the ELCollections.ELD file into TradeStation.

 

4. Install the library in your brain. In other words, read the documentation! This is a big library, so studying the documentation will save you a lot of time and effort in the long run.

 

Version History

1.00: Initial beta release.

1.01: Read very long lines from text file. Improve performance with string keys (works around TS issue).

1.02: Many new functions. See post below for details.

1.03: Updated to support ADE with TypeZero bars.

1.04: Fixed issue with ADE TypeZero data files.

1.05: Fixed ListN.InsertSorted so that it always returns the correct value.

 

You can check what version you have by opening the ELC_Version.txt file from the ELCollections.zip file. If you don't have that file, you don't have the latest version.

 

ELCollections is in the public domain and may be freely used and distributed.

The ELCollections software is offered "as-is", with no warranty, either express or implied, of its suitability for any purpose.

 

My limited understanding of PVP is that it is the Peak Volume Price or the closing price at which the current peak volume (highest volume of the day) had traded; however, apparently the PVP calculation is more complicated than that.

thrunner...thanks for your post. I don't believe they will need to install ADE. When the indicator was created it included all of the ADE information needed to run the indicator. It appears the people that I had been sending it to did not need to install ADE either.

 

HOWEVER I could be wrong. Thank you for posting the information just in case it is needed. I appreciate you including that.

question dbntina or whomever might know:

 

does the PVP indicator work on historical charts --- or does it need to be collecting data in the 1-tick chart in order to calculate PVP? (and therefore only works on a go-forward basis if that 'data-collection 1-tick chart' is left open)?

 

thanks,

no ...pvp must be collected live. Don't refresh the window either or I think you might lose the data as well if I am remembering correctly.

 

Everything else can work historically (VWAP and SD bands).

 

good question

thanks,

 

one other thing just so I know. forget VWAP/SD for this question. just pretend I want to watch PVP only.

 

if I have my 1-tick window minimized and my 2-minute chart is up running PVP --- how does the pvp calculation in a 2-min chart know to pick up the data from the 1-tick chart and not vice versa (that is, why doesn't the 2-min data feed into the 1-tick chart if both are open and running the same indicator)?

Frank,

 

That is the awesome thing about what BAMBOO on the tradestation forums created. He is an awesome programmer and he created a programming addon that allows ts programmers to do some really cool stuff.

 

One of those is to be able to pass variables stored in one chart to another chart in a different timeframe.

 

That is how it is done. The information updated on a 1 tick chart is passed to the 2 minute chart for example and plotted realtime.

 

Basically it is all in how you call the variables. I am calling the variable from the tick chart. You have to understand BAMBOOS ADE to be able to do it properly because technically you could do it in reverse like you said.

 

It is fantastic. Thanks Bamboo!!

thanks dbntina,

 

I just loaded this up an hour or so ago and right now my 1-tick chart shows the correct PVP (it matches the highest volume bar that is in my 'Matrix' window) --- while my 2-minute chart is slightly off. I assume that in the future, there won't be this discrepancy (once it has collected the data).

 

I trust that the code is working --- but the 2-minute chart is not right now feeding off the 1-tick chart. is there a rule that you know of where the 2-minute 'catches up' to the 1-tick chart? would be useful to know when the code begins to 'kick-in' and draw off the 1-tick chart.

 

thanks so much

 

frank

Hi I am a new user in TS and I have downloaded the vwap and pvp from here. Thz for writing up the codes dbntina, but I had some problem applying the pvp in my chart, as it is always off from the matrix when I compare both. I was trying to use this in the stocks and I am wondering if I have to adjust anything to fit the indicator into the stock chart.

Yes i am building a trading method.

 

So, did you modify dbntina's indicators adding new code? I'm interested in the same method but I can't find newer or updated volume indicators such as pvp or vwap. Do you have (or someone has) any of these?

 

 

Thanks

I am at the beginning and understanding how the code works.

At the moment i don't have built new code, i am only take point how could i built a trading metos use this indicator.

If i built something i post, and condivide.

Shouldn't the cumulative volume be relevant to the volume total?

 

Original:

Value2 = ((UpTicks[Value1] + DownTicks[Value1])/ShareW) *

(Square(AvgPrice[Value1]-VolWAPValue)) ;

 

Modified:

ShareW already is the total volume (which is what you want)

each run through you are accumulating the total volume with.

 

ShareW = ShareW + (UpTicks+DownTicks) ;

 

I think the short answer is no :) (but I could be wrong)

This: /ShareW

was

This: /ShareW[Value1]

 

I don't believe the original formula attributed variance to the individual independent elements as a 'whole'.

 

If you use /ShareW you are not evaluating an individual independent element.

You are evaluating a summation of the individual independent element.

 

NOTE: I forgot to mention that I'm using the CLOSE and not the avgPrice.

That's what is called for i believe. The price of the element is divided by the volume of the whole sample. This means that every time a new element arrives (bar) you need to re weight every single element in the sample with the new total volume of the sample.

    • China’s New Cryptocurrency   China plans to release a new digital currency which would bear some similarities to Facebook’s Libra coin. It would be usable across several platforms like WeChat and Alipay.   In a recent interview with the Shanghai Security News on the 6th of September, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China, Mu Changchun, stated the purposes and the need for the new digital currency. He stated that the central bank needed to evolve from the use of traditional paper currency and delve into electronic payment methods which are making strong advances around the world. He said that the digital currency would be a realistic way to protect monetary sovereignty and legal currency status, stating that this digital currency initiative was a way of planning for a rainy day.   He also mentioned that digital currency would be as safe as the traditional central bank-issued paper notes and that it could even be used without requiring an internet connection. This offline feature is one of its major selling points as monetary transactions can still be carried out even in the face of communication breakdowns resulting from natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and so on.   In 2014, the Chinese central bank set up a research party to explore the possibilities of a China-based digital currency to reduce the costs of producing and circulating paper money, which in turn would boost policymakers’ control over the supply of money.   Information about the development of this new digital currency was unknown to the public until last month when Mu announced that the innovation was almost ready.   US-based financial magazine Forbes has made claims that the currency would be ready by November 11.   Analysts are saying that the announcement made by social media giants, Facebook on the release of its digital coin, Libra, is the reason for the acceleration of the push towards digital currency by the PBoC.   Mu made mention of how the new digital currency would strike a balance between allowing anonymous payments and preventing money-laundering as compared to Libra. Although the Chinese digital currency may bear some resemblances with Libra, it would possess characteristics that even Libra didn’t have.   Facebook’s Libra Facebook’s Libra has sparked a lot of worries among global regulators that it could become the predominant digital payment format and could become a medium for money laundering considering the social media’s wide reach.   Libra is said to be a digital currency that would be backed by several real-world assets, including bank deposits and government securities, and it will be held by a network of stewards. The structure of Libra is predicated on promoting trust and to stabilize its price.   Finally, Mu further discussed the superiority of the digital currency over altcoins was that others could go bankrupt and cause its users huge losses. Thus he said, can never be the case of PBoC’s new currency.   Source: https://learn2.trade         
    • Facebook’s Libra To Apply For Licence In Switzerland   Swiss financial regulators have signaled that Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra is mandated to meet up to extra requirements besides acquiring a payment system license before they can begin operations in the region.   In a recent press release, the Swiss Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) explained that the diverse services projected by Libra have created the need for adding the requirements being imposed. They stated that due to the issuance of payment tokens by Libra, the operations planned by Libra would clearly exceed those of a pure payment system and therefore should be subjected to such extra requirements.   The Extra Regulatory Requirements According to FINMA, the extra requirements would be targeted specifically at liquidity, risk concentration and capital allocation.   The financial regulators of Switzerland have also noted that the management of Libra is another element necessitating the demand for Facebook to meet extra requirements concerning its cryptocurrency initiative.   In the launch of the Libra white paper in June, Facebook noted that the reserve would be controlled by a web of custodians who would be spread across different geographies. The so-called custodians will be mandated to possess an investment-grade credit rating.   Also, Facebook noted that the real assets used to back the Libra cryptocurrency would be a selection of low-risk assets such as bank deposits and government securities.   What Form Will these Extra Libra requirements take?   According to FINMA, the extra regulatory requirements that Libra would have to meet would be nothing different from what other participants in the financial markets have to adhere to.   For example, Libra would be expected to be exposed to certain bank-like rules such as a large simultaneous number of withdrawals of Libra coin by users would have to be palliated by the application of certain bank-like regulatory requirements. This means that Facebook would be required to obtain a banking license. This idea has been pushed for in the past by U.S. President, Donald Trump.   FINMA also mentioned that Libra’s international range will mandate a globally coordinated approach. This new development would drastically delay the launch of the cryptocurrency.   U.S. Pressures Switzerland over Libra Cryptocurrency Switzerland is under intense pressure from the United States to ensure that its cryptocurrency regulations are not prone to misuse. Facebook chose the Central European nation as its hub because of the country’s progressiveness towards FinTech.   According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, officials from Switzerland and U.S. Held a meeting in Switzerland earlier this week, where they discussed matters surrounding the new cryptocurrencies regulations.   The U.S Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, emphasized his concerns over the need to have regulations strong enough to fend off bad actors. He mandated that the Swiss handle these concerns with all importance.   Source: https://learn2.trade   
    • I don't agree with you. There are dozens and dozens of brokers that are regulated by the CySEC or FCA.
    • Just one more question. How many real REGULATED crypto BROKERS can we find? Correct, the answer is ZERO!! Please stay away from trading cryptos.
