A couple of suggestions.....

1) Be able to apply alerts on trend lines, or horizontal lines, or any line that is drawn eg; a box, elipse

 

2) Be able to set the DOM (middle price column) alert so that it defaults. Hence you can just right click on the price column.

 

3) Be able to set up the alerts so that if an indicator ticks up or down, or to a certain level it alerts.... an make this easy to turn on and off.

Eg; say you are using the Donchian (higher and low levels) you may wish to see when the next high tick goes off, without having to constantly be alerted by the low tick going off if in a downtrend.

 

If you can already do this then please show me the way..... I seem to find knew stuff on there every day. Liking the system.....just not my trading.

thanks.

I wish that the gridlines between the rows and columns on the quotes windows for the updated releases (3.5.X.X+) could be removed so that it looks like the quote window of old (3.4.x.x and prior).

Anyone have a Hull MA and Opening Range indicator or know where to get them...?

 

I can help you out with the Hull MA...

 

Cut and paste this into a new easylanguage indicator and compile:

 

Inputs: price(Close), length(21), 
	zeroLine(0.0), zeroVisible(false), 
    upColour(Blue), downColour(Red), sideColour(Yellow), colourDeltaBar(1); 

Value1 = jtHMA(price, length); 

//Plot1(Value1, "jtHMA"); 

If ZeroVisible = true then 
Plot2(zeroLine, "Zero"); 

{ Color criteria } 
if (Value1 > Value1[1]) then  
Plot1(Value1, "jtHMA", upColour)
else if (Value1 < Value1[1]) then  
Plot1(Value1, "jtHMA", downColour)
else if (Value1 = Value1[1]) then
Plot1(Value1, "jtHMA", sideColour); 	


#function jtHMA	 

Inputs: price(NumericSeries), length(NumericSimple); 
Vars: halvedLength(0), sqrRootLength(0); 

{ 
Original equation is: 
--------------------- 
waverage(2*waverage(close,period/2)-waverage(close ,period), SquareRoot(Period) 
Implementation below is more efficient with lengthy Weighted Moving Averages. 
In addition, the length needs to be converted to an integer value after it is halved and 
its square root is obtained in order for this to work with Weighted Moving Averaging 
} 

if ((ceiling(length / 2) - (length / 2))  <= 0.5) then 
halvedLength = ceiling(length / 2) 
else 
halvedLength = floor(length / 2); 

if ((ceiling(SquareRoot(length)) - SquareRoot(length))  <= 0.5) then 
sqrRootLength = ceiling(SquareRoot(length)) 
else 
sqrRootLength = floor(SquareRoot(length)); 

Value1 = 2 * WAverage(price, halvedLength); 
Value2 = WAverage(price, length); 
Value3 = WAverage((Value1 - Value2), sqrRootLength); 

jtHMA = Value3; 

 

And it looks like OEC just rolled out a 3.5.1.0 chart package... and the "save as default" option for imported indicators works again. Yay!!!

Thanks!... I am playing with OEC and Ninja Trader demos. OEC looks so good but I am a bit concerned the support is not as deep as Ninja... But then I fired up Ninja and whooa.. blank charts?? Patsystem does not maintain data so I have to import data.. I am really taken by OEC's ability to trade on trendline breaks and if I can resolve the EL indicator import bumpiness I'll be all set... Not that I use that many anyway..

I prefer OEC to Ninja myself. Unless your doing very complicated things in code I don't see an advantage to ninja personally. There will of course be those that tell you anything but ZenFire is crap, but frankly i've been impressed by OEC's data in the recent volatility and between you me and the wall, I execute trades through Infinity anyway so i'm no impacted anyway.

I don't understand the idea here. Please explain further.

I'm not sure if you can create an alert like this; however, I've used coloring for this purpose before and works nicely. This will color your bar/candle based on the parameters you set. Anytime that parameter is met, a coloring will print on top of your normal bar/candle. If there's a way to do it via alerts, I'm not sure but in the meantime you can try the coloring out.

Thanks BrownsFan.......

1) very handy I did not realise that when you click right on the trendline/horizontal line and then go into alerts, it would go off that, I was busy looking in properties and a few other places.

2) In the DOM when you left click on the price column it can create an alert. I ideally wanted to set it up as a default (much like many of the other tasks in OEC) and hence meaning you could just left click on the price column to set an alert with one click. Not a major issue, just something that might be quick and easy.

 

3) Thanks for the bar chart, colouring. This will not be enough as I still need to watch it, and if I have the indicator already showing it does not give much more info - handy none the less.

I was looking more at on the chart ALERTS > CREATE ALERTS > ADVANCED tab.

Thinking I was wondering if there was some way to set the alerts off a chart in here.

 

If you use the example of a higher high, lower low indicator (a donchian channel) it would be great to be able to alert when it breaks up or down initially, and then have the alert reset until the next time after it goes sideways for a few bars - (otherwise it will continue to fire)

 

 

I will keep looking as OEC has many hidden settings.

thanks.

Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but I find the reporting and trading statistics very poor or not not intuitive enough.

 

OEC should improve their report generating system

- Generating reports takes forever to process

- Users should be able to create custom reports within the OEC platform that can be easily generated daily

 

I'm sure this is already well known, but trend lines can often skew chart viewing which throws off the x/y coordinate ratios. Rather than having candles saturate the entire chart window, trend lines can cause the candles to become compressed until they are removed. Major pain.

I would like a risk to reward indicator that can be placed on the chart that shows the stop loss risk and profit targets and shows the difference to risk/reward ex: 2:1 1:1.

 

The risk/reward indicator on tradingview.com is great but dont like paying a monthly fee just to us an indicator..see image references of indicator below.

    • Nice way to start! Don't get used to it haha. Netted 2.28R. However, I made a mistake with my position size calculation and accidentally only entered at 91.4% of the size I intended, so based on the actual risk rather than the intended risk, this trade was about a 2.5R winner.

Dont forget to like and subscribe I know you cant get your replies in quick enough these days but keep trying. Scraping the hull: Ridding your organization of barnacles Award-winning author Gary Conner is president of Lean Enterprise Training. 5-6 minutes   Editor's Note: A version of this article previously appeared in the March 2004Lean Into It newsletter. What do barnacles and lean manufacturing have in common? Let me explain. Barnacles are a form of sea life that everyone's heard of but probably knows little about. Many different types exist, but let's talk about the type of barnacles that attach themselves to ships. These crustaceans are roughly the size of a quarter, and they attach themselves to a host (ship) for life. The adhesive properties of the cement that they excrete are amazing. This small animal glues itself to a host with a compound so strong that it could hold the weight of a compact car (2,500 pounds). Estimated costs associated with speed loss (caused by increased drag) and increased fuel consumption resulting from these marine mollusks' growth on ship hulls are an astronomical $1.4 billion per year. "Fouling," as it is referred to, can contribute to an increase in fuel consumption of up to 7 percent after only one month and 44 percent after six months (Swedish International Development Authority, 1986). For ships, the traditional remedy has been a regular visit to the dry dock. There, barnacles and other organisms are scraped or sandblasted off the hull, which is then covered with a coat of antifouling paint designed to discourage their return. As long as 2,000 years ago, hulls were sheathed with lead and smeared with concoctions of oil laced with sulfur and arsenic. In 1625 a lethal recipe combining arsenic, copper, and gunpowder was considered worthy of an English patent as an antifouling compound. The danger for shipping companies is that the barnacles are hidden below the water line. Out of sight, out of mind. The only indication that fouling has occurred is the vessel's reduced performance. Barnacles-Non-value-added Activities Parallel Could our companies be fouled—slowed down or consuming resources unnecessarily— by barnaclelike behaviors? How do we "scrape the hulls" of our organization to ensure smooth, unrestricted, and cost-efficient advancement? Barnacles can be likened to the non-value-added activities we perform every day. During a kaizen event at a client company in Nevada, we performed a value-added, non-value added (VA-NVA) observation of a sawing process. The operator was a large man (325-plus pounds). He was working in 95-degree-F heat and wearing a shop coat over his coveralls. This poor man was sweating profusely, to the degree that I was worried about his health. The initial observation showed that he was able to spend only 19 percent of his day in a value-adding mode. Eighty-one percent of his day was spent on either necessary non-value-added tasks (things like paperwork and stacking parts), or, worse yet, unnecessary non-value-added tasks (activities like looking for a supervisor or a pallet). After the kaizen team rearranged his work area, developed a new work standard, and set his operation up to run at takt time, this worker produced three times as many parts. He now spent well over 60 percent of his time in pure value-added activities (still room for improvement). At the time of our kaizen presentation, he was unaware that he was producing 200 percent more material through his two saws. Before we told him about the documented improvement, we asked him if the new layout and new work steps were easier or harder. He expressed a great deal of satisfaction with the new process, describing it as "so much easier than before." He was producing three times as much, with less effort. Kind of like pushing a ship through water with less effort because the barnacles had been scraped off. Nondiscriminating Suckers Organizational barnacles can grow anywhere. Engineering, order entry, purchasing, finance, and, of course, the production departments may need to be put into "dry-dock" and examined for non-value-added activities. A fabrication team VA-NVA examination found that 25 percent of its time was spent in non-value added activities. For this $14M company, this meant $3.5 million worth of potential sales opportunity was being left on the table each year. Interestingly, after a ship has had barnacles removed, the entire hull must be treated to inhibit barnacle regrowth. So it is with organizations; sustainment is by far the hardest part of improvement. Changing the behaviors of the individuals who comprise the organization is necessary to avoid reverting back to non-value-added activities. Continuous Improvement Kaizen must become a way of life, and one trip to the dry dock will not create a barnacle free ocean or organization. Continuous improvementis not just a program title, it is a verb, and verbs demand action. I'm sure that scraping barnacles off a ship isn't easy work, but the rewards of improved performance and reduced costs must be worth it, because every viable shipping company in the world does it. So, where will you start scraping?
