Volume Weighed Color Bars

 

If you subscribe to the school of thought that Volume is a Leading Indicator of Price...

this indicator is for you.

 

The price bar will widen when the volume is higher than previous bar,

and narrow when less than previous bar.

What a great way of doing this equivolume stuff. Any ideas to take it one step further by using different thicknesses as volume keeps on increasing. Maybe just 1 or 2 different extra thicknesses???

Can you code this in Easy Language or an ELD for Tradestation? Thanks.

 

it is time to invest 5 minutes on your TradeStation User's Manual.

Sorry Tams, I work and go to school full time, and have a family. If you don't have an answer besides a sarcastic one, maybe someone who knows EL and has the time to help not only me, but lots of other people who use TS and have trouble coding in the wrongly named Easy Language, possibly 50-100 members of Traders Laboratory who would be very interested and thankful that someone could post the code for Tradestation. Thanks again for the free sarcasm and not trying to help.

You sure do sound busy, but yet you have enough time to give Tams some grief. He simply suggested that you learn to help yourself. I find it funny that you have an attitude with Tams and he is here giving away free indicators. Guess the old saying is true, give someone an inch and they want to take a foot.

 

Tams,

A lot of people, including myself, are very thankful for your FREE help.

You are both right, kind of. Tams has spent a lot of time contributing to the EL indicators and he probably expects users to have a rudimentary knowledge of the platform they are using. There are however, traders who don't really care about anything other than applying some indicator that they think might work.

 

I think Tams is only using Multicharts, so he is not able to provide an ELD (which only TS can create, but MC can usually read). However a TS user can create an ELD easily by clicking on the EasyLanguage icon on the left tool bar of TS and choose new EL document, paintbar, and then copy and paste the text code included above into the editor window and the press F3 to verify the code.

 

If one can't be bothered with that, then perhaps the attached eld (TS version 8.3 for compatibility) might help.

 

Those interested in this indicator might just want to download a similar indicator BlueRay created for TS about 9 months ago, an ELD called tradeflow, similar to that of the original from the CQG platform :

Thanks thrunner, for posting the ELD. Now I have to run off to work, and work all weekend, go to school and study a lot of the rest of the time not working, and want to have time for my family as much as possible as well. It is possible that Tams response seemed rude and sarcastic to me, could have just not answered if he didn't know, but I apologize for also being rude back. Sorry Tams, I shouldn't have replied so abruptly, I do appreciate the free indicators, just didn't expect your response and was incorrectly rude in return.

Perhaps you where unaware that as Multicharts also uses easy language it is (usually) a simple cut and paste of the text into Tradestation. I guess this could be mis-construed as extreme laziness rather than just being pressed from time.

Ok, this is completely off topic here, but if you are really so busy that you don't have 5 minutes to create an indicator yourself, then you should ask yourself if trading is really for you? Trading is much more than plugging a free indicator from the internet on your chart and you will need many, many hours a day learning the profession. If you want to be a professional golfer, getting a free set of clubs from your buddy at work is not going to make you a professional golfer. Only the hours and hours of practising will.

      Hello traders,
      I am interested in order flow trading and I will post some trades and predictions, some articles and ideology of a bit different understanding how price moves and why. May be this forum will be the right place. So, for the start I have  couple of charts of recent trade on oil. Also I did some comparison of two different software. Would be great to meet some traders who use order flow too. Lets see. I have a lots ideas and strategies to share. I don't use any traditional indicators, because just numbers are important for me.

    • Date : 26th November 2020.Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!The USD has remained soft in quiet conditions, while global asset markets have seen little direction. The US Thanksgiving holiday has quelled activity. Europe’s Stoxx 600 traded near flat. Most stock markets in Asia gained, though remained off recent highs. The MSCI World Index is also off its highs, but remained buoyant and on course for a record monthly increase this month. Copper posted a new near 7-year high, and while other base metal prices were also underpinned most remained off recent trend highs. Oil prices saw modest declines after recent gains, which culminated in a nine-month high yesterday.The Brexit endgame remains in sharp focus!Sterling has seen limited direction, continuing to hold gains from month-ago levels of around 1.5% to 2.5% versus the Dollar, Euro and Yen. There is still no breakthrough in down-to-the-wire negotiations between the EU and UK, and there are lots of warnings of border chaos and, from external BoE MPC member Saunders, of long-lasting economic consequences in the event of a no deal exit from the common market.European Commission president von der Leyen said “we are ready to be creative” to get a deal while repeating that “we are not ready to put into question the integrity of the single market.” An Irish government member said that a deal was “imperative” for everyone.The steadiness in the Pound, the principal conduit of financial market Brexit sentiment, reveals that investors remain unperturbed. One explanation is the real money participants are sitting on their collective hands, positioning for an expected deal but waiting on concrete developments and details, while maintaining vigilance on the possibility of there being a no deal by accident.Short-term speculative participants, meanwhile, don’t seem to have had a fruitful time in trying to play the fatiguing myriad news headlines and endless deadlines that have come and gone. The latest and supposedly final deadline, is next Tuesday — December 1 — which leaves just one month for a deal to be ratified on both sides of the Channel. We expect to a deal to materialize at the last minute, just as the withdrawal agreement was seemingly pulled out of the hat at the ultimate minute a year ago. There may even be a fudged extension.Pressure on the UK government is intense. US president-elect Biden warned London that the scope for a deal with the US would be compromised if there is a return of a hard border on Ireland — which is what could happen in a no-deal scenario (the UK government would have the choice between maintaining a free-flowing border on Ireland at the price of breaking up the border integrity of the UK, and possible protests and even violence from loyalists, or breaking the EU withdrawal agreement, which would result in a hard Irish land border).A leaked Whitehall document warns of a “perfect storm” of chaos in the event of a no-deal in the Covid-19 era. There are also pressures on the other side of the Channel to reach an accord. While French President Macron has political incentive to put up a show of fighting over fishing rights, he is not likely to carry through on his threat to veto any deal as other key EU states don’t see the UK’s position on fishing as being unreasonable. France and other nations, and the UK, also need to maintain good relations for security and many other practical reasons.As for the market impact of a deal, much will depend on how narrow the deal is. The narrower it is, the bigger the negative impact on both the UK and EU’s terms of trade positions will be on January 1, particularly the UK’s.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Those who take quick and payday loans and refuse to pay them back are now hooked.   Normally, it is not a good thing to go into debt unless that is your last resort. We know that people are fond of borrowing and they seriously hate paying it back. Even when it comes to paying back what was borrowed, your creditor will become your enemy. Such is the nature of human beings.   Debtors don’t want to return money even when they eventually have means of repayment. If anyone borrows money and returns it, it means the person has a Godly spirit in him.   If people ponder the power of compound interest, they would stay away from loans. If you pay 1.33% or 1.79% interest per month on a loan, you will need to pay back roughly 16% or 20% per annum. And this will begin to compound as long as you don’t pay.   Most borrowers who are now in trouble have realized that the interest rates are eventually higher than the capitals borrowed. They realize that the creditors are using an indirect way to enslave borrowers (go and work for me, bring back the capital plus profits).   The banks themselves know that business environment is very tough and are now indirectly asking people to work with or spend the banks’ funds and bring the funds plus profits back to them. Many borrowers really have poor mentality and they don’t know the gravity of what they’re putting themselves into.   If a bank could lend out 1 billion USD per annum, it would reap a return of 150 million USD (at least on paper). Do you think they will forget about you if you owe them even a small amount?   Loans without collateral are now popular. But your collateral is your BVN – unless you don’t want to operate accounts again in the country.   I have heard people saying” Don’t pay to my Access Bank account again, but pay into my UBA bank account.” “Don’t send that cash into my GTBank account again, but send it to Zenith Bank.” It’s like postponing the evil day.   Ti iya o ba i tii je eniyan, iya nri nkan panu lowo ni (Yoruba adage). I literally means: If Suffering has not come to attack you, it means Suffering is currently busy with something. If you think you can avoid payment by abandoning the account you used to borrow money, you’re only postponing the evil day.   They cannot come for you when your debt is small, but the debt will begin to compound and compound till it would make sense for them to come for you.   BAD NEWS FOR DEBTORS CBN has given banks permission to deduct from funds a debtor has in another bank account. For example, if you borrow quick loans from FCMB and you abandon your FCMB account and you are now operating another account with First Bank, FCMB can make a request to First Bank, and the money you owed will be deducted once or gradually from your account at First Bank, without your permission.   Would you now keep money at home, so that bad boys will come to you to take their dues?   Borrowing isn’t a good thing, no matter how plausible it looks.   Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
