Cumulative Volume(Delta Buy/Sell) Indicator

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This indicator was posted by Ben, for use with NT

 

"Delta Buy/Sell Volume, Tick volume or Tick count

Hello everyone,

 

I've made a sweeping change to the cumulative delta indicator and posted it to this message. It is one indicator that lets you choose from the following 3 cumulative delta types:

1) Bid/Ask Volume

This is cumulation of the volume at the Ask - volume at the Bid

2) UpTick/DownTick Volume

This is the cumulation of the volume on upticks - volume on downticks

3) Tick Count

No volume in this calculation, just the sum of upticks - downticks

 

I believe this is a more efficient handling of the incoming market data and it may lead to resolving some of the "discrepancies" in the cumulative calculation. Please test it and report back to this thread.

 

Another enhancement in this version is you can completely turn-off the individual bar delta values (which were plotted as green and red dots in prior versions). This will prevent any undesirable scaling issues with the panel.

 

Let me know if you have any questions! Please test this indicator and report back.

 

Enjoy!

Ben

Sorry if I am being dense, but I did not find any code to "test" this indicator. Would you please re-check your attachment status (or just tell me I messed up...).

 

Thanks,

Anyone has the attached file ?

Thanks,

 

No, but this will get you started if you use TradeStation or Multicharts . . . There is one input, and it is for the start time of the session you trade.

 

input:startT(0930);

vars:vdelta(0);

 

if t>=startT and t[1]<startTthen

vdelta=upticks-downticks

else

vdelta=(upticks-downticks)+vdelta;

 

plot1(vdelta);

 

if vdelta>0 then

setplotcolor(1,green)

else

setplotcolor(1,red);

 

I am not totally convinced by the statements in the opening post. Volume at the Ask can only ever be Volume on Upticks - when the market ticks up it trades at the Ask. Buy stops and market orders counterparty with sell limits there.

 

What you really need to try and find is a way to work out is whether the volume that is traded on any particular leg (lots of buying, say) is mostly traders buying to establish a new position, or traders buying to exit an existing (short) position. If they're buying to establish a new position and you know that a load of traders just got long, and then the market begins to move against them, then you know there are a whole bunch of people sitting on a losing position that they're going to have to bail. Now, can you predict where they will bail? Where are their stop losses all sitting? As soon as their stops start to get get hit, that's just going to drive the market even lower . . .

 

Hope that's some help.

    • 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
