Trade Intensity

Recommended Posts

As an aside some while back I wrote code to measure trade intensity. The (pretty simple) routine to do this could easily be used to re-aggregate large orders onto the time and sales. I don't really know Ninja that well, most of the aggro is finding out the mechanism to achieve something. How to display data on TS is precisely that sort of aggro. Too busy to take a look at that now but might if there is sufficient interest.

Blowfish,

 

If you could get a trade intensity indicator and a rebundling indicator programmed for Ninja, I think you would be wildly popular (if they were any good of course ;) )! Maybe some members with a c# knowhow could get together to help you out on the project...

I have prototyped bundling trades and to be honest I don't think it's that useful. The problem is one has to make a lot of assumptions that are often incorrect. Just because two trades occur at the same time doesn't mean it was the same trader who made them. That sort of thing. I'm curious to know how others have handled this. The programming is not hard but it seems we don't have enough information to work with.

I don't know cunparis. I have seen applications which do this in the past, but changes may now make this very difficult. I think it has just got to be an educated guess based on micro timestamp readings right? So if you have a really good data feed, the guess is more likely to be correct or closer to being correct.

You will have to make assumptions that's true enough. If you get 300 1 lot trades all at exactly the same time (as reported by the API) it seems a reasonable to re bundle them. (with zen/ninjs I was surprised to find this happen quite a lot) .

 

Actually you could argue we are not really assuming anything....it is just easier to digest this on the tape as 300@xxx. Actually it is pretty much impossible to digest it all unless you do aggregate it. Essentially since the changes at CME it is impossible to read the tape (time and sales) without as prints (on some instruments) will scroll faster than the eye can see (let alone the brain process.

 

Negotiator, exactly you have no other real possibility other than setting a 'delta time' threshold. I'm not really inclined to program it at the moment (I do have urges to program now and then!). It really is pretty trivial though (not quite so sure about the displaying things in a scrolling grid). Having said that Ninjas sample code for OnMarketData displayed on a grid I think.

All these indicator doesn't well on 100 tick charts?

 

 

Bomberone1,

 

The indicaors in our Indicator Pack are designed to work with volume charts as described in a TL Post Here or by downloading the Indicator Pack Manual HERE.

 

The Velocity/Intensity indicator works best on volume bars that are around .0004 of the average daily volume of the target instrument. For ES we find good results using 1,000 bar chart.

 

Today's session high (so far) was posted at 1008 PST in ES @ 1355.50. The HUGE spike in velocity shown in the chart below and the negative divergence between price and indicator V94 led to a 15 point drop in ES.

 

The chart below shows the session high today and how it was well indicated by these indicators. Some of the indicators in the pack indicate continuation and some such as shown in this chart indicate reversal.

jojojo, if your hat is off in sarcastic appreciation, stop reading unless you're interested in an alternative pov.

 

UrmaBlume is in my top ten all time best of multiple objective measures. He publishes original research extending what already exists. He's disclosed what has existed but has not been previously disclosed. He walks the path he talks. He is a Saint by comparision to the claims of others I've observed.

 

Oh - Now the cat is out - clever marketing , chapeau

We developed this indicator and all of our traders use it every day, in fact we have 2 different versions of it and they use both.

 

The HUGE CAVEAT with this indicator is that it can give the signal of a reversal when it is really a signal of continuation.

 

The good news is that with the proper filters based on order flow and the balance of trade it becomes easy to tell which is which. Without such filters or other corroboration its use can be very problematic.

 

cheers

 

UB

First off thanks UB for the thread! I spent the time to code up what I believe to be a crude NT version. I can now say with the utmost confidence that when I see intensity accelerate and then decelerate the market will either reverse or continue! :-)

 

Any chance you'd toss us a bone or pointer re order flow and/or balance of trade filtering?

AZMike,

 

Thanks for the kind words.

 

As to our work with order flow and the balance of trade, there is more coming. By the end of next month TradePoint Software will bring out new software that will include an updated version of our Indicator Pack and an Update to the HUD. This will include more information about how to use Intensity to spot runs on stops and buy/sell programs.

 

To demo the efficacy of this software we will start a free room whose main purpose will be to demo and support the software.

 

To demo the software we will show real-time, real-money trade by bots who use inputs from the indicators in the indicator pack as their main source of trade decision support information.

 

To start, I will run the room and be open to questions about the software and trading in general. Participants will be encouraged to join the discussion and be given access to either phone in, Skype in or VOIP in. From those participants I will be looking to hire someone to take over the room to allow me more time for my work with the development of automated systems.

 

Besides offering a demonstration and support for my software, my goal with this room is to provide more useful trading support and information for free to traders of any level than is provided by any of the paid rooms.

 

As always I am open to any questions or comments by anyone. Contact info including phone is on our site.

 

cheers

I just read this entire thread and saw I had posted in it a few years ago.

 

I tried to make something like this in SierraChart but it seems SC is limited by its smallest unit of time being 1 second. So with tick or volume charts, I can check to see if the time it took to create the bar was less than one second, which is basically 0 seconds, because SC cannot work with values less than 1 second but faster than zero seconds.

 

So I was able to using a tick chart of any size and measure the time between bars. Naturally the smaller size tick charts, the more accurate this would be. However, since it is limited to 1 second at the smallest, using too small of a tick chart size results in too many signals, and using too big of a tick chart size results in too few signals.

 

ES 500 tick chart:

ES 2000 volume:

http://www.sierrachart.com/Download.php?Folder=SupportBoard&download=186

 

ES 250 tick chart:

http://www.sierrachart.com/Download.php?Folder=SupportBoard&download=187

 

You can see there are many false signals on that last one.

 

I'm sure this isn't really close to UrmaBlume's but I also don't think you can get any closer with SC since 1 second is as fast as they can get.

    • Date : 26th November 2020.Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!The USD has remained soft in quiet conditions, while global asset markets have seen little direction. The US Thanksgiving holiday has quelled activity. Europe’s Stoxx 600 traded near flat. Most stock markets in Asia gained, though remained off recent highs. The MSCI World Index is also off its highs, but remained buoyant and on course for a record monthly increase this month. Copper posted a new near 7-year high, and while other base metal prices were also underpinned most remained off recent trend highs. Oil prices saw modest declines after recent gains, which culminated in a nine-month high yesterday.The Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!Sterling has seen limited direction, continuing to hold gains from month-ago levels of around 1.5% to 2.5% versus the Dollar, Euro and Yen. There is still no breakthrough in down-to-the-wire negotiations between the EU and UK, and there are lots of warnings of border chaos and, from external BoE MPC member Saunders, of long-lasting economic consequences in the event of a no deal exit from the common market.European Commission president von der Leyen said “we are ready to be creative” to get a deal while repeating that “we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market.” An Irish government member said that a deal was “imperative” for everyone.The steadiness in the Pound, the principal conduit of financial market Brexit sentiment, reveals that investors remain unperturbed. One explanation is the real money participants are sitting on their collective hands, positioning for an expected deal but waiting on concrete developments and details, while maintaining vigilance on the possibility of there being a no deal by accident.Short-term speculative participants, meanwhile, don’t seem to have had a fruitful time in trying to play the fatiguing myriad news headlines and endless deadlines that have come and gone. The latest and supposedly final deadline, is next Tuesday — December 1 — which leaves just one month for a deal to be ratified on both sides of the Channel. We expect to a deal to materialize at the last minute, just as the withdrawal agreement was seemingly pulled out of the hat at the ultimate minute a year ago. There may even be a fudged extension.Pressure on the UK government is intense. US president-elect Biden warned London that the scope for a deal with the US would be compromised if there is a return of a hard border on Ireland — which is what could happen in a no-deal scenario (the UK government would have the choice between maintaining a free-flowing border on Ireland at the price of breaking up the border integrity of the UK, and possible protests and even violence from loyalists, or breaking the EU withdrawal agreement, which would result in a hard Irish land border).A leaked Whitehall document warns of a “perfect storm” of chaos in the event of a no-deal in the Covid-19 era. There are also pressures on the other side of the Channel to reach an accord. While French President Macron has political incentive to put up a show of fighting over fishing rights, he is not likely to carry through on his threat to veto any deal as other key EU states don’t see the UK’s position on fishing as being unreasonable. France and other nations, and the UK, also need to maintain good relations for security and many other practical reasons.As for the market impact of a deal, much will depend on how narrow the deal is. The narrower it is, the bigger the negative impact on both the UK and EU’s terms of trade positions will be on January 1, particularly the UK’s.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Those who take quick and payday loans and refuse to pay them back are now hooked.   Normally, it is not a good thing to go into debt unless that is your last resort. We know that people are fond of borrowing and they seriously hate paying it back. Even when it comes to paying back what was borrowed, your creditor will become your enemy. Such is the nature of human beings.   Debtors don’t want to return money even when they eventually have means of repayment. If anyone borrows money and returns it, it means the person has a Godly spirit in him.   If people ponder the power of compound interest, they would stay away from loans. If you pay 1.33% or 1.79% interest per month on a loan, you will need to pay back roughly 16% or 20% per annum. And this will begin to compound as long as you don’t pay.   Most borrowers who are now in trouble have realized that the interest rates are eventually higher than the capitals borrowed. They realize that the creditors are using an indirect way to enslave borrowers (go and work for me, bring back the capital plus profits).   The banks themselves know that business environment is very tough and are now indirectly asking people to work with or spend the banks’ funds and bring the funds plus profits back to them. Many borrowers really have poor mentality and they don’t know the gravity of what they’re putting themselves into.   If a bank could lend out 1 billion USD per annum, it would reap a return of 150 million USD (at least on paper). Do you think they will forget about you if you owe them even a small amount?   Loans without collateral are now popular. But your collateral is your BVN – unless you don’t want to operate accounts again in the country.   I have heard people saying” Don’t pay to my Access Bank account again, but pay into my UBA bank account.” “Don’t send that cash into my GTBank account again, but send it to Zenith Bank.” It’s like postponing the evil day.   Ti iya o ba i tii je eniyan, iya nri nkan panu lowo ni (Yoruba adage). I literally means: If Suffering has not come to attack you, it means Suffering is currently busy with something. If you think you can avoid payment by abandoning the account you used to borrow money, you’re only postponing the evil day.   They cannot come for you when your debt is small, but the debt will begin to compound and compound till it would make sense for them to come for you.   BAD NEWS FOR DEBTORS CBN has given banks permission to deduct from funds a debtor has in another bank account. For example, if you borrow quick loans from FCMB and you abandon your FCMB account and you are now operating another account with First Bank, FCMB can make a request to First Bank, and the money you owed will be deducted once or gradually from your account at First Bank, without your permission.   Would you now keep money at home, so that bad boys will come to you to take their dues?   Borrowing isn’t a good thing, no matter how plausible it looks.   Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
