Convert MT4 Indicator into Tradestation Eld?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I found 2 interesting and promissing indicators based on MT4 and would be happy to have them available for TS.

Anyone here "billangual" able to code MT4 and Easylanguage? Have MT4 code available and can post it.

 

Many thx in advance,

 

Goody

Here is my version. Feel free to modify.

 

1. MA_WRP indicator

 

{ Mimic VininI_BB_MA_WPR.v1.mq4 }

 

inputs: WRP_Len(55), MA_Len(3), BB_Len(89), BB_Std(1);

 

Vars: WRP(0), WRPMid(0), WRPUP(0), WRPDN(0), sDev(0);

 

{WRP = (PercentR( WRP_Len )+50 )*2 ; WRP with scale > 100}

 

WRP = PercentR( WRP_Len );

WRPMid = Average( WRP, BB_Len );

SDev = StdDev( WRP, BB_Len );

 

WRPUP = WRPMid + BB_Std*sDev;

WRPDN = WRPMid - BB_Std*sDev;

 

 

Plot1(Average(WRP, MA_Len), "%R w/BB" ) ;

Plot2(WRPMid, "WRPMid" );

Plot3(WRPUP, "WRPUP" );

Plot4(WRPDN, "WRPDN" );

MA_WRP.ELD

Hi phim9hi3n,

 

great, many thanks for your help here!

Not sure what you think about it, but it seems to give a good help about where you are in a trend and if it maybe going to change. I had 2 screens attached in my first post.

There is some info available about the TDI on the Web to dig in a bit deeper, compassfx.com seems to be a good start.

 

So thx again and good luck,

 

Goody:)

I found also interesting indicator and I think it will be useful for others traders . I will apreciate if somebody helps me "trunslate" this code into Easylanguage TS. Thanks in advance,

Alex.

I just want add picture of this indicator with parameters:

PriceActionFilter=1;

Length=3;

MajorCycleStrength=4;

UseCycleFilter=false;

UseFilterSMAorRSI=1;

FilterStrengthSMA=12;

FilterStrengthRSI=21;

It seems to be similar to Kelly indicator.

Thanks.

Alex.

:) Yes, I found some info about TDI which is helped me in writing the code.

 

2. TDI w VolBand indicator.

 

Enjoy and lucky on trading.

 

Great job on converting the TDI to tradestation!

 

Here's my contribution, the attached Wilders Smooth is the same as the "Price Channel" the orignal poster shows in the screenshot, and as the Synergy method on MT4. Plot Wilder's twice, 1 with Price = high, 1 with Price = low. Length is 5.

WILDERS SMOOTH MA.ELD

It's Hodrick-Prescott Filter coded in MT4. it's widely used in econometrics or bussiness forecasting. hope someone convert it to Tradestation.

i've tried by myself but i've stucked in the Forward iteration part. he used one variable named x in the forward interation and it's third parameter of the function itself. but i don't know how to handle it on Tradestation.

if you have tried, but are unwilling to share your "efforts",

what chances are someone would like to collaborate in this ?

its only my simple indicator to plot local time on chart

 

Here is code that puts the clock on the chart. See the ELD file. I got it from the TradeStation, EasyLanguage Forum:

 

eKam Clock and Timer

 

Here is some really simple code that I create:

 

Once
Begin
Value1=Text_new(D,T,H,numtostr(T,2));
End;

Text_SetString(Value1, NumToStr(T,2));
Text_SetLocation(Value1, D, T, getappinfo(aihighestDispValue));

this code only gives you the ending time of the bar.

 

you should use currenttime:

 

Text_SetString(Value1, NumToStr(CURRENTTIME,0));

 

 

MultiCharts user can use CURRENTTIME_s, which gives the seconds portion of the time.

 

 

ps. there is a function/keyword to format the time into hh:mm:ss

Okay. Thanks. I learned something new. See, it's worth sharing code even if it's not perfect. ;)

i understand what you meant and i'd like to share anything i have. but i really have nothing.

i meant was i just tried to write some pseudo code to know if it's possible by myself.

    • Apparently, the murdering psychopussy military industrial complex is suffering from 'Middle East Fatigue'. Oh dear, the poor little lambs must be bored of killing 500k innocent people and displacing 10 million others all based on a pack of never ending lies. Obviously, you won't need the host to give you a blow by blow account of how you're being treated like a 5 year old..

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th April 2018.



      FX News Today

      European Outlook: SNB’s Jordan sees no need for change in policy. The Swiss central bank President told Bloomberg last night that “there is no need to do anything regarding monetary policy at this morning”. Speaking after the CHF broke through the 1.20 per euro mark for the first time since the SNB gave up that ceiling, Jordan said the franc’s drop goes in the “right direction” but added that the currency is still considered a haven and the situation “fragile” and prone to change. So the SNB “remains very prudent” and “convinced that the current monetary policy is still necessary”. Further confirmation that the SNB is firmly on hold while watching also the ECB’s move very closely. If and when the ECB finally starts to reign in its support it will also increase the room for the SNB to manoeuvre. Bloomberg polls predict the first rate hike from the SNB in the last quarter of 2019.

      US Updates: Revealed a Philly Fed rise to 23.2 in April and a 1k initial claims downtick to a slightly-elevated 232k in the BLS survey week of April. The ISM-adjusted Philly Fed beat estimates with only a small April drop to 59.7 from a 45-year high of 61.8 in March, thus outperforming Monday’s Empire State where we saw an April drop to 15.8 from 22.5 with an ISM-adjusted decline to 56.2 from 57.3. For claims, the trend remains tight despite modestly higher readings over the last three weeks, as the moving Easter holiday and school breaks often distort April claims. We still expect a 210k April nonfarm payroll rise. The weekly Bloomberg consumer comfort index hit a third consecutive new cycle-high in mid-April of 58.1, and leading indicators rose 0.3% in March to leave a 22-month stretch without a decline, and a rise in the 6-month annualized reading to a lofty 8.8%

      Charts of the Day



      Main Macro Events Today
        CAD Retail sales – Expectations are for an improvement of 0.5% in February after the 0.3% gain in January. The ex-autos sales aggregate is expected at +0.3% after the 0.9% gain in January. The CPI’s gasoline price index edged 0.7% lower in February after jumping 3.2% in January following a 3.3% drop in December. % m/m inline with expectations CAD CPI – Expect March CPI, due Friday, to expand 0.4% (m/m) after the 0.6% surge in February. The annual growth rate is projected at 2.5% in March, up from the 2.2% y/y pace seen in February that was the fasted rate of CPI growth since the 2.4% pace in October of 2014. The BoC took the recent CPI climb in stride, viewing it as in line with their outlook. The temporary factors that had been restraining inflation, the Bank explained, “have largely dissipated, as expected.” The close to 2% core inflation rates are consistent with an “economy operating with little slack.” Inflation in 2018 is expected to be modestly higher than they expected in January, but due to the transitory impact of higher gas prices and recent minimum wage increases.
