Market Statistics Indicator for MT4!

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody again.

 

Sorry for posting my first indicator (MIDAS) to Technical Analysis section.Somehow I couldnt manage to open a new thread for that indicator in this section at that time. Now things look ok. Maybe it should be moved here also.

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f34/midas-indicator-mt4-6538.html

 

So this is my second indicator. And this indicator is created to be able to follow Jperl's Market Statistics thread on MT4.

 

As I already talked about in my MIDAS post these are my first indicators and I am just learning MQL. So feel free to send me comments, bugs,anything...

 

I might also post skewness indicator in a later post.

 

 

Thanks for trying..

 

Akif,

Hello Everyone,

 

Hopefully I can inspire a MT programmer to develop a Market foot print Delta indicator with this Picture. This is the closest I can get to tape reading the Forex or any market.

 

I have been using NinjaTrader to build charts for the Forex. The chart I posted shows the GBP/USD for today around FOMC time. It is set at a 15 pip range. One of the basic thing I do using this type of chart is to draw trend lines through the POC (Point of Control) and if a POC crosses the trend line I look to enter the market against the trend works pretty good.

 

FYI the Point of Control is where most of the trades took place during the construction of the range bar and if you look at each bar you can see a blocked off or in bold section which is the point of control area.

The only way I got to make the market foot print indicator to work on the Forex was to change the setting to use uptick instead of bid and ask.

You can download NinjaTrader for free and make a Forex connection through Gain also you can use the market delta footprint for free for 30 days if you want to play around with it.

Another excellent way to measure gauge a trend or move is to use Delta percentage and if someone can develop a simple indicator to show the where most trades are taking place if on a up or down tick and plot it as a percentage it would be very helpful to read the market to see where the buyer or sellers are starting to put up a fight.

 

Thanks,

Trouble is Robin that nearly all the people that provide MT4 do so for spot forex. It is impossible to produce that sort of chart for spot as the required info is just not reported.

On of the biggest handicaps of MT4 is it cant do range bars(or tick bars) like your Ninja chart. So it is really hard to get that same picture in MT4.(but i am quite new to that:))

 

But this one looks interesting. I will check on that.

Hello BlowFish,

 

Yeah that’s what a bummer about Forex is that it’s a spot market but I was able to tweak the Market footprint to show up tick and down tick transactions that seem to work well for the Forex. I like I said this is the closest I can get to reading tape. At the very least it can show you the battle price or POC at each candles being form where most of the transaction took place at which price level which I think is a great advantage to seeing price action in a different light and hopefully catch moves earlier and risk less by knowing which prices the buyer and sellers are actually fighting for.

 

FYI I also have the each block price to show it at 2 tick increments.

 

I don’t know if the picture I post can be seen because I tried and it does not pull it up on my side so I’ll post a link to my screencast picture.

Yeah that’s been the biggest problem with me transitioning to the Forex is trying to use minuet charts. I build a couple of Market Delta footprint charts using minuets charts to see how they look.

 

It looks pretty good on 5 minuet charts and above.

 

Here is a 5 min and 10 min chart of GBP/USD. It is a great way to see which price is the battle prices of each candle.

 

Let me know if you can see the pictures?

 

Thanks,

Hello Blowfish,

 

I wish that’s why I’m trying to inspire some who like programming to make something similar to this for MT but NinjaTrader can be used free in demo mode to build these charts but the Market footprint a monthly subscription of $59 a month but the cool thing is you can use it for a 30 day trial run for free. Just get a demo account from Forex (Gain Capitol) or Ampforex which you can set up and set up a forex connection through Gain for Forex. That way you can play around with it for 30 days at least.

I think I should not be posting up links but just Google financial algorithms NinjaTrader and you can find it. Very easy to install and NT is very user friendly.

 

If you decide to use it and have problems setting the settings let me know and I’ll show you what settings I used.

Thanks,

Yes I'm Pretty sure that's the way it is set up they get permission from Market Delta.

 

Yeah I like it a lot but I have just been simming it right now but I can see a lot of potential uses for it.

Especially looks good on point and figures or reversal charts by reading on an up bar when the sellers are starting to come in and vice versa.

Thanks,

Hi Robin,

 

it might be a little bit off topic here, but I would like to ask you about your value chart.

Is it just a standard one with setting 5 (like mine?) ?

 

My POC/PVP looks different to yours, and makes no sense to me, so its not on my chart.

My chart shows a 14 range on FOMC with two ADXVMA's and a 10 linear regression system on it.

As I like JPerl's approach too, here is a second picture, FWIW:

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=12906&stc=1&d=1250207340

 

The POC/PVP is very different to yours and the simple concept that JPerl

uses. This leads me to another question:

Do you have the code for your POC/PVP calculation available?

 

Your system looks fine to me too.

 

Regards,

 

Hal

Hello Hal9000,

 

I don't think you are much off topic because Market Delta is very similar to Value charts in that Market delta shows value also, like where the buyer and sellers are willing to do there transactions which equals value for any instrument

 

I have my value chart set at 15, I feel it gives it more room to over valued or under valued since I'm trying to find the bigger moves but my other charts I do use the 5 setting to hop on a trend I really like to use the 5 setting value indicator to hop on the direction of a trend when prices retrace. Value charts work well for that.

 

Thanks,

The trouble with PVP is unless you assign every single tick to the apropriate price you will get discrepancies due to averaging the volume across a range of prices (a bar). Could that be the problem?

Hello Hal9000,

 

Plus what I think is also happening is that you are displaying more bars compared to my charts thats why it looks differnt. if I display more bars and set the range to yours it should look the same.

 

Thanks,

Hello Blowfish,

 

I use one of the Calculated Value areas that I downloaded on the indicator section in NinjaTrader. I believe there is 2 or 3 of them located there. There is another web site called trading studies dot com that has a bunch of free cool indicators you can download for free. Like Renko bars which are pretty cool to filter out noise and give you the core trend.

 

It is the indicator that will say dValueArea on your indicator list and that’s the one that plots the histogram. There are others that don’t plot the histogram and just plot the value area but dValueArea one does.

 

Let me know if you need it and I’ll e-mail it to you.

 

Thanks,

Hello Blowfish,

I learned about Value areas from Larry Levin on how and why floor traders use these areas where 70% of all the volume was traded during a certain period of time is where value areas are calculated. I also found a PDF from Market Delta show some brief history and how to trade these value areas.

 

Hope that helps.

 

If you want the PDF let me know I have it in my other computer.

 

Thanks,

Which software is this (using Java?)

 

Akif

 

Hello Akif,

 

this Java application is my own implementation, based on some open sources.

 

It wasn't intended as charting application, but now I use it to create my pictures.

 

 

Regarding my PVP implementation, maybe its best to forget about it,

maybe I made an error, but anyway what it should show is the PVP based on the 3rd central moment, and well, my intention wasn't to add confusion.

 

Regards,

 

Hal

I made the mistake of buying his course. Certainly not one of my best purchases <blush>. I have a large trading library though.

 

I was wondering what the actual indicator is that plots the value histogram, probably didn't express myself that well.

    • MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON   Dear Traders,   We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading.   Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a "father-figure" and he wore that title proudly.   Master Trader Joe Ross' passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly.  Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend.    Joe, you will forever be in our hearts.   Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of "The Law of Charts™" and the "Traders Trick Entry™." Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80's caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach.   Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: "Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading."   Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in "Who's Who in America." After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company's newsletter Chart Scan™.   “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed in making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading (https://tradingeducators.com/about-our-traders), concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M.       “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader.  He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology.  Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the "pit" then to opening an online account, my how things have changed.  But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” - Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter)   Joe Ross' Trading Philosophy: "Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade," and "Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader."   IN MEMORIAM: https://www.tradingeducators.com/special-edition-897-in-memoriam    Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/

    • Amid the bearish charge witnessed in Bitcoin (BTC) on Monday, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele revealed that the country bought the dip. El Salvador’s Bitcoin Law went into effect on September 7, making it the first sovereign nation to adopt the flagship cryptocurrency as legal tender. President Bukele announced via Twitter that his government acquired an additional 150 BTC with the dip. He tweeted that: BTC traded around $45,000 when Bukele made the announcement yesterday. However, the cryptocurrency has since dropped to the lower-$40,000 area, according to data from TradingView. Meanwhile, ATM tracking website Coinatmradar.com recently revealed that the North American nation now has 205 crypto ATM locations, the third-largest by a country (behind the US and Canada). The launch of the Chivo wallet, the country’s official crypto wallet, started with a rocky start. However, Bukele has assured that the Chivo app now operates in optimal capacity. Reports show that the full adoption of the Chivo app could cost remittance providers like Moneygram and Western Union over $400 million per annum. Last Friday, Bukele tweeted that about 1.1 million Salvadorans now use the Chivo wallet, adding that: “we haven’t enabled 65% of phone models yet.” Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — September 21 BTC has fallen to a new monthly low of $40,140 following the industry-wide crash. The benchmark cryptocurrency now struggles to pick itself up and back to recent highs. Already, Bitcoin is on track to post a red monthly candle for September as it always has since it went mainstream. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart That said, we expect a steady rebound above the $44,000 mark and higher over the coming hours. Nonetheless, we could see a retest of the $41,000 mark if bulls fail to reclaim the $44,000 level soon. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $44,000, $44,400, and $45,000, and our key support levels are at $43,000, $42,000, and $41,000.
