Thanks for pointing this out, Tams. I wasn't aware that you can not use FC within a function. Just out of curiosity, why not?

 

I'm using this version of the WMA because it is more efficient than WAverage. WAverage has to calculate a loop for each bar, and depending on the length of the smoothing period, these loops can slow down calculations considerably. From Logic's Ergodic oscillator parameters, it appears that triple smoothing is used, so this means that even more loops are calculated per bar.

re: these loops can slow down calculations considerably

 

this code was created 20 yrs ago for the computers of the day.

it won't make a difference with today's computer.

 

 

FC remembers the result from previous calculation, and makes a short cut for the current calculation.

This technique works fine inside an indicator, but the memory gets lost when it is called from within a function.

 

 

Try SUMMATION instead of SUMATIONFC, you will get the result you expect.

As an aside loops are generally a pretty poor way of averaging though they are 'unintuitively' what people seem to use. Sum the new point and drop the point n periods ago for the win :)

For ch33ch - I tried to pm you, but it was rejected because I haven't posted on this board 5 times. I'll be happy to assist, but you will need to pm me w/ your email address. Standing by, if you're interested ...

I seem to remember a couple of early posts of yours at ET. They where pretty succinct but also a fairly detailed account of your methodology. I probably have them in a bit bucket somewhere (though lord know where). Something like that might spark a bit of activity.

I'm just used to the flame wars at ET that I'm a bit burnt. No pun intended. I'm in the process of my final update on my book. Give me a few days and I will post a clear synopsis of my method.

Any update on this? It'd be good to see a clear synopsis here, may stimulate interest over here.

From father to son the blood runs thin

See faces frozen still against the wind

The seam is split, the coal face cracked

The lines are long, there's no going back

Through hands of steel and a heart of stone

Our labor day has come and gone

 

-Bono-

I'm swamped with a new labeling program but will bookmark this and start posting soon.

Just getting started here but wanted to say one thing - the volume bars are such a logical chart type. I'm working on cobbling out a Tradestation oscillator.

The tradestation code already exists. You might try sending proflogic a pm.

So, does anyone use this method profitably ?

 

How objective is it really ? If two people used the same charting program and the same settings for the ergodic etc....would they both come up with the same entries and exits according to the rules by "Logic" ?

I use it profitably and know many others that do as well but I'm bias. :cool:

 

How objective is it? Extremely!

 

Most of use eSignal as a data feed and as you are probably aware, being on different data servers will produce very slightly different entries and exits but the overall results are consistent. There are others that use different feeds and even different charting software programs and the results are still extremely close.

The key is to confidently trade what is on your screen and that comes with screen time and building one's confidence in the rules and the outcomes as they play out in real time. The main problem with traders is that they don't have the patience to learn anything, they simply want a turn key method that will trade for them. Once must learn to read a chart first . . . period.

 

Example . . . in skeet shooting when the target is released the outcome is the same. The individual shooting at the clay target, aims and fires. Will everyone shooting at the clay target react in the exact same time frame, no but the reaction is identical. Good thing trading isn't like skeet shooting though where the target must be hit. In trading when executing the the trade in a particular direction it is only necessary that you get the price direction and strength correct. If the target isn't hit, you can still profit from the correct decision.

Hi Logic :)

 

Sorry if I'm annoying ,but I really didn't understand if we have to set up 3 differents graphs or in the same graph you use three different kinds of indicators ?

 

tanks Max :)

One indicator set at 2 separate speeds on the same price chart.

    • Date : 11th November 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 11th November 2019.Important events are coming up this week, with UK, China and US inflation and GDP releases.Monday – 11 November 2019 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK growth has “slowed materially” this year due to Brexit uncertainty and global trade wars. September forecasts see GDP growth steady, while the preliminary outcome for Q3 is anticipated to slow down. Tuesday – 12 November 2019 ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are seen unchanged at 3.8% y/y in the three months to September. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.9%. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for November is projected at -22.7 from the -22.8 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -32.5 from -23.5. A lower than expected outcome ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment. Wednesday – 13 November 2019 Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 01:00) – The RBNZ is widely expected to proceed with a 25 bp cut to 0.75% as it continues to ease policy amid the slowing in growth. However, it will be interesting to see whether RBNZ will signal further easing in contrast with the latest encouraging economic data. Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in October after dipping to 1.7% in September and August from 2.1% in July. Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% October headline CPI rise is anticipated with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective September readings of flat and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7% for a third consecutive month, just as core prices rise 2.4% y/y for a third consecutive month. An up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 is expected due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective. Powell’s 2-day Testimony (USD, GMT 16:00) – Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress, providing a broad overview of the economy and monetary policy. Thursday – 14 November 2019 Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the unemployment rate is expected to have increase at 5.3% in October, employment change is expected to have stabilized, at 15K compared to 14.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have dipped with a -0.9% ex-auto figure on a m/m basis. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 13:30) – Eurozone Q3 GDP growth held steady at 0.2% q/q – a better than expected report that highlighted once again that it is a mistake to reduce the Eurozone economy to the German manufacturing sector alone. The same outcome is expected on Thursday as well, at 0.2% q/q for Eurozone preliminary reading. Friday – 15 November 2019 Retail Sales (USD, GMT 14:30) – A 0.4% October gains for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures have been estimated, following a -0.3% September headline dip with a -0.1% ex-auto figure. Gasoline prices should give a boost to retail activity given an estimated 4% increase for the CPI gasoline index. Unit vehicle sales should ease in October with a dip to an estimated 17.0 mln pace from 17.2 mln in September. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.6% rate in Q4, following the 2.9% Q3 clip. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • It is really an amazing too to use, if it really works as it is shown on picture. Many strategies are always based on these high and lows.
    • It is good to see that there are few ones who are sharing their tools for free so that many traders can have a good trade day. Good to see a nice post.
