Open ECry Wish List Thread

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

 

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.

    • Date : 20th February 2020. Yen tumble continues - 20th FebruaryThe Yen has continued to tumble, and is showing a near 2% decline against the Dollar from yesterday’s opening levels.USDJPY printed a 10-month high at 112.10, just 28 pips away from its 10-month high, and EURJPY posted a 2-week high, at 121.00.There have been reports over the last day of major fund managers cutting yen longs, including against short regional Asian currency hedge positions, though most Asian currencies came under fairly heavy pressure today amid concerns about the coronavirus outbreak spreading regionally at an increased rate. There has also been talk of Japanese funds buying US Treasuries. While China reported a large drop in new coronavirus cases, just as the PBoC delivered an expected rate cut, South Korea and Japan reported increases in new cases.This news led to a mixed performance among Asian equity markets, with China outperforming while other benchmark indices sputtered. Trying to call the point of peak contagion, and thereby the peak of economic disruption, is tough, though the consensus seems to be that it will happen in March or April, aided by the arrival of warmer weather in the northern hemisphere (although scientists aren’t exactly sure if warm weather will have the same quelling effect as it does on flu and cold viruses).Japan’s Q4 GDP data, released on Monday, disappointed, showing a 1.6% q/q contraction versus the median forecast for -0.9%. Q3 data were also revised down, and the figures came amid expectations for a dismal current quarter performance given the impact of measures to contain the virus outbreak.There is a risk that USDJPY might sharply reverse gains should risk appetite in global markets deteriorate and sustain. Intraday meanwhile, momentum indicators continue their positive configuration, suggesting that despite the fact that the asset reached overbought territory there is still room to the upside. Stochastics slopes into overbought area and MACD extends above signal line suggesting strengthening of positive bias, whilst ATR posted a 16 pips move. Some correction could be seen ahead of US session, with immediate Support at 112.00 and 111.58 (yesterday’s peak), however the overall outlook remains positive. Resistance sits at 2019 peak , i.e. 112.38 and at 112.66 (R2 of the day).Always trade with strict risk management.
