Trade Intensity

Recommended Posts

Stick the salami back together again :) That's why you get that sawtooth effect on the chart's I posted when you get a whole bunch of activity that spans several bars but with the same time stamp.

 

Have you tried setting the time span to the latency of zen-fire in that case instead? What I mean is, if the smallest time difference of zen-fire trades is 10ms between every trade, then you should set the time difference to 10ms if you get 0 since the time difference must have been lower than this threshold/latency. This would be a good approximation until you get a feed with no latency.

My latency is pretty low (I'm considering upgrading the 20meg to 50meg fibre :)) Zenfire is streets ahead of TS which I believe UB uses (at least for some stuff). In fact I believe Zenfire & TT are as good real time feeds as you will get regardless of who you are (retail or pro). The only way to get any faster is to put your PC right next to the exchange. Jitter is more of an issues as someone else mentioned.

 

There are flurries of ticks arriving with 0 ms between them, this is good I believe! Anyway the logic I use is something like

 

if (Delta == 0.0) Intensity = Intensity + ThisTickVolume; else

Intensity = ThisTickVolume/Delta;

 

works good but strictly speaking I should reset the intensity if it is a new bar and delta is zero. (Constant volume bars you can have several bars with the same time stamp if your charting package constructs them properly).

I did not mean the latency of your internet connection. The latency of your internet connection only determines when you get the data, not when the individual actually trades occurred. Maybe I used the wrong word. I think the problem lies with the data provider. What I mean is: If the feed provider cannot process the data it receives from the exchange fast enough or uses outdated technology (bad programming or slow hardware), then for them the trades will in fact occur at the same time so they distribute the trades with the same time stamp. What you really want is time of the trade at the exchange but the feed provider might not request this from the exchange to save on bandwidth and then set the time themselves. Or it's NinjaTrader that replaces it with the local time of your computer. Or you might even be responsible yourself since you said you use 'DateTime.Now.Ticks' which will use the time of your computer, not the time when the trades actually occurred.

 

Does NinjaTrader provide a way to access the time of the trade at the exchange? If so, you should try using that.

Nope (not that I know of) that other method (Time[0].Ticks) returns the bar start time which of course is constant through the whole bar. If it was end time it could be used.

 

One could always use a 1 tick chart which I have done in the past in TS to retain full control.

I dunno but I think you might have an issue I get several clear flurries with a time difference of zero and a more varied spread of values. Are you using DateTime.Now.Ticks? ..........Time[0].Ticks does not work.

 

Here's some sample output (FTSE).

 

I am using the TimeSpan class's TotalMilliseconds method with the difference in DateTime.Now and changed my volume capture code from OnBarUpdate to OnMarketData. This has changed the 3-7ms differences to 0-1ms. However my current formula does not accurately capture the first trade in a flurry, since it has a large time difference from the previous trade, and it also does not capture the 0ms trades, since I am dividing by duration in my formula. I need to write more code to take care of these cases.

 

Here's some sample output. difference(ms)---trade size

241----23
0----103
1---29
0---10
63----29
710.0516----10
5310.1485---10
0---32
37---13
1----97
4677.2----267
1---14

I am using new logic to reduce the impact of time. For trades that arrive in less than e = 2.71828183 ms since the last trade, I use the tick volume itself as the intensity. For trades that take more than e = 2.71828183 ms, I divide the tick volume by the natural logarithm of the duration in ms and use this value as the intensity. However, I am still not sure whether I should average the intensities over each tick in the bar or simply add them up.

I think this is a mistake since you treat trades that come very quickly like a trade that came after exactly 1 minute (if your time unit of intensity is per minute).

My time unit is the millisecond. For example, if a trade arrives in 100ms from the last trade, I will take the volume and divide it by ln(100) = 4.6. That way, trades that arrive slowly do not contribute as much to the intensity, but at the same time they are not completely discarded.

I thought I'd post a FTSE chart. FTSE can be a bit thin ....seems to be today. Heres a chart showing trade intensity, tick intensity, and time per constant volume bar. There are a couple of things that I think it might need...some sort of smoothing, and some way of rescaling the low value of the bar (red dot at the bottom is minimum intensity for that CV bar , histogram is maximum and magenta line average) .This (low value) is orders of magnitude smaller so essentially flat lines a wee bit above zero.

Tick intensity is just ticks per constant volume bar ....max min and average. Basically you are not factoring in the volume. Oh it is 1/delta. Where delta is the time since the last tick.

 

Time histogram is interesting a small bar is analogous to a volume surge i.e the constant volume bar completed quickly (so small time histogram). Incidentally I have a maximum threshold on that and it is a bit to aggresive so a lot of the long histogram bars (long time for the constant volume bar to complete) are being truncated.

I do not know much about programming but I would like to have a go at making a Ninja Indicator that adds up either the ticks or volume that occurs in 1 second, and if it is greater that the previous Max Count then plot it to the indicator. I will NOT use this on a 1 tick or 1 volume chart.

 

My question is should I make a 1 second loop and if so how do I do that ?

Why? None of this is about automated trading and many different ways to calculate these indicators have been discussed here.

 

Except for you and one other strong anti-intellectual my posts have received a very warm reception from your most astute and prolific posters.

 

What have you got against new material that is well received by your members?

 

Why don't you see if you can find the integrity to put up a poll about my posts? If most want them gone, I assure you they will not appear again and if most want them to stay - what would be the problem?

 

I can't help but wonder what it is that is really bothering you. Your most astute posters have found value in what I have posted and my posts have received as many views and thanks as any recent posts. I would think that would be attractive to a site whose revenue is dependent on its content attractiing members.

 

Wait until I have done something before you convict me on your limited life's experience with the markets and those who trade them. You don't know anything about me and my bet is you have never once traded a 100 lot of S&Ps or the equivalent.

Thanks for the thought, unfortunately tick counter only works on tick based intervals, or so it says when I loaded it.

 

I got this reply from a NT moderator so I will work through that:

 

 

if(DateTime.Now.Second != the_last_second)

{

if(tick_max < tick_count)

{

tick_max = tick_count;

}

 

tick_count = 0;

the_last_second = DateTime.Now.Second;

}

 

tick_count++;

I don't get why it seems that traders at our level have such a problem with doing things differently...With such a high rate of failure at the retail level to me doing things differently just makes sense.

Alot of this though depends on the way it is presented. If someone came on here and started a thread that they find all their trading opportunities according to this formula

3422cc705bde2398c0b1de1e91827c12.png

Alot of people would probly believe it to be total nonsense, a fraud, overly complex...even though its just an exponential moving average that everyone already uses.

If you want to get your head around the point of these threads...picture that you just started trading but don't even know what a chart looks like. You do understand though that you have tick data coming in for almost every trade for the instrument your trading. Whats the best way to summarize that data and extract the most useful information from that data without getting hung up on information that simply does not matter?

If you knew nothing about charting you certainly would not take 4 data points over a minute period, have the computer draw an OHLC bar and believe your capturing all the useful information in the data..Thats just a relic because you could do that by hand with graph paper.

Urma, it is my observation that you are dealing with the abstract and theoretical and not the reality of Time/Price. In other words, since your system is "sealed", your posting charts really serves no purpose other than stimulating some kind of theoretical discussion. I guess that is fine, but it does seem a lot like a vendor setup, if I am wrong sorry, but only time will on this.

One more thing, your comment about size was, in my opinion, unprofessional. Unless myself, you or anyone else here posts an audited, certified statement showing a Yard or more a week, we should refrain from this kind of foolishness.

The Ever Sincere VIPER

 

Your observation must be through some kind of blinders:

 

None of this is abstract as almost every thread I have started contains enough information to reverse engineer the work. Especially this thread. Nothing is sealed. Take a real read, if you can handle it.

 

I have made no mention of any system anywhere on this forum and none of my posts contain the slightest mention of any system.

 

If you don't get the purpose of my posts leave them alone, others like them just fine. As to what I sound like to you, how much do you think I care?

 

My comment about size was more about the difference between retail trade and commercial trade. And from reading everybody's posts, including yours, it is pretty easy to divvy the posters up into - commercial traders/private traders/wannabe traders without seeing any statements.

 

My guess is that it is something like in poker where the guys that offer the least to the community and are the most critical are the lower level of the private trader/wannabe spectrum. Not that size matters all that much, it is the pretension I dislike. My experience is that guys that give themselves names like Trade Viper usually have the same kind of results as guys that call themselves Poker Stud.

 

As to unprofessional - I am sure that my 30 years of experience in various corporate and private firms isn't the same as whatever experience you have had. From reading the posts of u nay sayers I also bet my trading day is pretty much different too. And again, how much do you think someone like me cares about what someone like you has to say?

 

I get nothing out of these posts except some very useful conversation with the few on this board that seem to be operating on plane similar to mine and, oh yea, a lot of grief from guys like you.

    • Understanding Insulin Pump (forex indicator) Setting Defining pump terms like basal rates, carb ratios, insulin sensitivity, and more Insulin pumps are devices that deliver insulin without the need for manual injections. Pumps provide fast-acting insulin through a small tube placed under the skin, delivering two types of doses: Basal (“background”) insulin, delivered continuously in tiny doses throughout the day and night; and Bolus insulin to cover the increase in blood glucose from meals and/or to correct high blood sugars. Pumps give insulin based on pre-programmed basal and bolus settings – read more about these settings below! Basal The goal of basal insulin is to hold blood glucose levels steady when you are not eating – ideally within a 30 mg/dl range (such as 90 to 120 mg/dl). With the help of a healthcare professional, you can program one or more basal rate settings in your pump. Basal insulin rate is the rate at which an insulin pump provides small, “background” doses of fast-acting insulin. The rate is usually programmed as a number of units per hour (“U/h”) during a certain time period. For example, someone could program their pump to deliver 1 U/h from 9am-5pm and 0.7 U/h from 5pm-9am. When you first start using an insulin pump, your healthcare professional will help you determine your initial basal rate and then carefully adjust your basal profiles based on frequent blood glucose self-monitoring. The ability to precisely adjust basal rates is one big advantage pumps have over once-daily basal injections. You can read more about basal rate testing here. Users can also set temporary basal rates (“temp basal”) for specific activities, like exercise. For example, someone might program a 50% reduction in basal rate for a long bike ride. After a set period of time, the pump will return to the normal pattern.  Note that basal rates operate differently in an automated insulin delivery (hybrid closed loop) system, such as Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G, Tandem’s upcoming Control-IQ, or DIY Loop or OpenAPS. In these systems, basal rates are automatically, carefully adjusted every five minutes – based on continuous glucose monitor (CGM) values – to keep your blood sugar in range. Bolus All modern insulin pumps have a built-in bolus calculator to figure out how much insulin to take for a meal or for correcting blood sugars. These are the standard bolus calculator settings and terms, with each explained below: Target Blood Glucose / Range Insulin-to-Carbohydrate Ratio (I:C) Insulin Sensitivity Factor (ISF) or Correction Factor Duration of Insulin Action (DIA) Insulin on Board Target blood glucose or “target range” is your desired blood glucose level. It can be entered into a pump’s settings as a single target for the entire day (e.g., 120 mg/dl) or as a range (e.g., 100-120 mg/dl). Pumps usually allow you to set different targets for different times of day – e.g., 100 mg/dl in the morning, 120 mg/dl at night. The bolus calculator uses this target to determine how much correction insulin to recommend in cases of high blood sugar. For example, if the target is set at 100 mg/dl, and current blood sugar is 175 mg/dl, the bolus calculator will recommend more correction insulin to reduce blood glucose by 75 mg/dl. Insulin sensitivity factor (ISF) or “correction factor” is how much one unit of insulin is expected to lower blood sugar. For example, if 1 unit of insulin will drop your blood sugar by 25 mg/dl, then your insulin sensitivity factor is 1:25. In the example above, the pump would recommend 3 units of insulin to bring blood glucose from 175 mg/dl down to 100 mg/dl. Different ISFs can be pre-programmed for different times of the day – e.g., many people are more insulin resistant in the morning, which requires a stronger correction factor. Insulin to carbohydrate ratio is the number of grams of carbohydrates “covered” by one unit of insulin. For example, a 1:10 insulin to carbohydrate ratio means one unit of insulin will cover every 10 grams of carbohydrates that you eat. So for a meal with 30 grams of carbohydrates, a bolus calculator will recommend three units of insulin. Duration of insulin action (DIA) (or active insulin time) is how long a bolus of insulin takes to finish lowering blood glucose. The DIA time starts when a bolus is given and ends when the bolus is no longer lowering blood glucose levels. An accurate DIA will minimize insulin stacking and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which can happen when boluses are given too close together. As expert educator Gary Scheiner shared at Friends for Life this year, “DIA varies from person to person, and CGM is the best way to figure it out.” He recommends doing calculating DIA when your glucose is high – take a correction bolus (without food) and watch the CGM until it levels off. “These are important numbers to get right. If you underestimate it, you’ll have frequent lows. If you overestimate it, you’ll have highs.” The number can change over different ages; Mr. Scheiner said most adults have a DIA of 4-4.5 hours, while most kids have a DIA of 3-3.5 hours. Insulin on board (IOB) is how much insulin is still active inside the body from the previous bolus dose. It is calculated based on your DIA, though the exact calculation varies depending on the pump. Roughly speaking, for a DIA of three hours, a three-unit bolus dose taken at 12pm would have about one unit of IOB remaining two hours later, at 2pm. IOB is important to take into account, as it can help avoid insulin stacking. This is also helpful at bedtime when determining whether or not you need more insulin to cover a high reading. In the future, we’ll talk more about pump therapy, particularly as we move towards automated insulin delivery and its benefits.

    • if you have a forex trading account you are almost 100% likely to be a loser.  You can learn valuable trading lessons by reading this article . (I know most of you here have severe reading and comprehension learning difficulties, but anyway) Why Labour lost | Coffee House Coffee House Why Labour lost John Curtice 8-10 minutes I thought I would take as my starting points what seems to be the internal debate inside the Labour party as to why it ended up where it did in the election. Thesis number one: it was Brexit wot did it. Thesis number two: it was being too left-wing wot did it. I’m going to suggest that neither analysis, on its own, is adequate. Let’s start with Brexit. There is no doubt that Brexit played an important role in explaining the change in party support between 2017 and 2019 (and indeed going back to 2015 as well). Those who voted leave were much more likely to vote for the Conservatives or the Brexit Party than they were to vote for the Conservatives or UKIP back in 2017.  Also, on the remain side, there was a clear relationship between having voted to remain in 2016 and voting for one or other of the parties that were in favour of having a second referendum. Brexit is also absolutely fundamental to understanding the Conservative success because, at the end of the day, the Conservatives won by consolidating the leave vote. Nearly three-quarters of those who voted leave in 2016 voted for the Conservatives as compared with around 60 to 65 per cent in 2017. Whereas the remain vote was fragmented. Labour got just under 50 per cent of the remain vote. The Tories still hang onto 20 per cent, although it was down as compared to 2017. And the Liberal Democrats were picking up around 20 per cent of the remain vote as well. In the end, the reason why we have a pro-Brexit government is not because a majority of people voted in favour of Brexit but because of the differential concentration of support. It’s also very clear that the pattern of movement between 2017 and 2019 is very clearly related to people’s views on Brexit. Labour lost between a quarter to a third of its leave voters in 2017 fell to the Conservatives. Equally, it lost around a fifth of its remain voters to the Liberal  Democrats. So Labour Remainers and Labour Leavers, if they were defecting, were defecting in very different directions. This is something you can only explain as a result of their reaction to Brexit. Brexit certainly creates awkward choices for Labour. The truth is that, on the one hand, it is predominantly a party of remain voters. But of course, the people who voted leave as a section of the electorate are those Labour thinks it represents – leave voters are more likely to be working class. It also causes the problem for Labour because Brexit is not a left-right issue. People who we would classify, on the basis of responses to survey research, as left-wing were as likely to vote for Brexit as were those who are economically on the right. Many a person who voted leave is on the left economically. They don’t like capitalism exactly the same way as they don’t like immigration. So there were difficult choices, but at the end of the day, Brexit was an issue where it became increasingly clear that you had to make a choice. It was a subject on which the middle ground of politics no longer existed. You either had to be a Remainer or Leaver. I think one of the ironies of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership is that somebody who was widely criticised for being too extreme or too radical, in the end, crucified his leadership on the altar of compromise. He was the last person standing who wasn’t willing to declare their position on Brexit. That was not something that was sustainable given where we had got to by December of last year. Of course, it simply reinforced another perception – a lack of leadership. Brexit was a problem. It does create difficult choices, but was it handled as effectively as it could have been? I think no. Albeit the party would probably have had to bite the bullet on the subject in a way that it was reluctant to do. The other arguments, coming particularly from those who are loosely associated with the regime of Tony Blair, is that the programme was too left-wing. The party was resurrecting ancient policies of nationalisation and it was wanting to restructure much of the private sector and the way it was governed. The problem with the argument, that the positioning was too left-wing, however, is found by looking at the survey data as to people’s attitudes towards nationalising utilities, towards changing the structure of company boards, it was actually relatively popular. Typically around 50 per cent of people said they were in favour. Only around a quarter were opposed. The free broadband policy was a bit of a niche market – it was young folk and Remainers who quite liked the idea. Broadly speaking, leave voters weren’t quite as keen on nationalisation as remain voters (many of them were ardent conservatives) but it’s not clear that this stance was what was costing Labour its support amongst its leave-orientated voters. But here we come back to the question of leadership and competence. What voters were not convinced on was that Labour’s programme for changing the public services, for changing the role of the state, was achievable. So the proportion of people who thought this was achievable was less than the proportion of people who said that they quite liked the idea. More broadly, people said, ‘is Labour going to be able to deliver? No. Can it run the economy? No.’ Unless those issues are addressed it is going to be very difficult for the party – whether it’s on the centre or on the left in terms of political positioning – to be able to persuade the public as to whether it should be elected. So in both cases, what the analysis needs to take on board is that it wasn’t so much a crisis of ideology or a crisis of Brexit, but a crisis of the party. It is the party itself that has to convince people that it can govern the country. That, I think, did mean hard choices on Brexit. It does mean being able to sell the vision that was meant to underline the policies, the individual policy programme. You needed an equivalent of ‘Get Brexit Done’. There was no equivalent on the Labour side that explained in two short sentences what the policy programme was meant to achieve. That is as much as most voters are ever going to take on board. Where does the party go from here? Well, you certainly need to understand where you are at. This is no longer a party that particularly gains the support of working-class voters. Although it does still do relatively well in places that you might call working-class communities. This, at the moment, is a party that has young people, it has graduates, and their distinctive characteristic is that they are socially liberal. These are the people who are remain-y. These are people who are not concerned about immigration. And so the question therefore is: where does the party go from here? Now, one possible answer is it needs to regain the voters it has lost. Okay, fine. But bear in mind that many of these leave voters that Labour lost are older voters. They’re frankly not going to be with us for that much longer. If you look at the age profile of the Conservative vote, unless that age profile is changed, the Conservatives are going to be in deep electoral troubled by 2030. On the other side, if you say, well okay, actually now the party should run with the grain of what its got, which is young, socially liberal, university-educated voters, the difficulty there is that there is competition for that vote, which is from the Liberal Democrats. I know it might appear that the Liberal Democrats didn’t do terribly well but they are picking up enough of that vote to make life difficult. Whereas the Conservatives were able to extinguish UKIP in 2017 and extinguish Brexit in 2019. There is much more competition on that side. Labour also, in coming to a decision, has to ask itself: do you really think you can compete with the Conservative party for the leave vote if the Brexit issue continues to be important in 2023 or 2024? Something that, frankly, we don’t know the answer to. What, of course, is also true is that you need to not just simply fight the last war. Brexit may not be an issue in 2023 or 2024. Maybe it proves to be a success. Maybe we decide, as a country, to move on. Who knows? Don't forget to like and subscribe.

Mostly upbeat earnings, reduced trade uncertainty and, more fundamentally, accommodative central banks (the Fed’s capping of repo rates is of particular note, which has swelled its balance sheet by 11% since last September) along with a persisting benign inflationary picture, have been maintaining the bull run on global stock markets. EURUSD steadied after dropping over the last two days of last week, which left a 10-day low at 1.1085. Earlier, German PPI inflation ended 2019 at -0.2% y/y, up from -0.7% y/y in November and in fact a tad higher than anticipated. However, the uptick was mainly due to the fact that negative base effects from energy prices fell out of the equation, which was already evident in HICP readings and thus the PPI number doesn’t change the overall outlook. Inflation remains too low for the ECB’s liking and both the definition of the benchmark inflation rate and the target itself are set to the part of the ECB’s strategic policy overhaul that is set to start in earnest this week. EURUSD is once again testing the 1.1085 and the key 61.8 Fibonacci level at 1.1079, and S1 sits at 1.1070 and the December/November low 1.0980. USDJPY went into narrow-range mode, posting just less than a 15-pip range in Asia through to the open of the London interbank market. Cable edged out a five-day low at 1.2985, and EURGBP lifted above its Friday peak in making a high at 0.8456. The possibility of the BoE cutting rates at its MPC meeting this Thursday should keep the Pound under pressure. The UK finance minister remarked over the weekend to the Financial Times that the UK would not be a “ruletaker” after Brexit, urging businesses to “adjust”. This has been taken negatively by businesses and has also weighed on Sterling today. USDCAD ebbed fractionally lower, to a 1.3055 low, which is near the midway point of the range seen over the last week. Oil prices rallied at the opening of trading today, which sent front-month USOil to an 11-day high at $59.66. Reports that two large production sites in Libya closed in the face of military blockades (the country is amid a long-running civil war) underpinned prices. This was ahead of the Libya Conference in Paris at the weekend and seen as muscle flexing by the main opposition group. Elsewhere, AUDUSD recouped nearly half of the decline seen on Friday in carving out a high at 0.6888. The Aussie Dollar on Friday printed a 10-day low at 0.6871. RBA money markets positioning has continued to imply a 56% probability for the RBA trimming the cash rate by 25 bp at its February-4 policy meeting, unchanged since last Thursday.
