Okay...first let me apologize to all the people that have written me emails and requested the updated code that plots the PVP with VWAP and SD bands. I have used the code last year and was quite happy with it for the ES and NQ. It seemed to be very accurate and was working well for me. To make a long story short I have been very busy with a new job and a new addition to the family. I am posting it here so that anyone who wants it can get it as I don't check my emails here frequently enough and don't have time to keep sending it to different individuals. The code is open and free to all to change and repost and take as your own. I am not able to support it. I don't even remember what I did and don't have time to try and figure it out again. Here is what I was emailing to everyone with the code I will post:

Here it is. Only works for 1 point or less...easy to fix just too lazy and got other stuff going on right now. (Instruments that trade in increments of 1pt or less NQ and ES .25 for example)

Open up a 1 tick chart and insert the pvp indicator on it ('DBPVP'). Then you can minimize.

Then open up a minute chart (whichever you follow 2min, 3min, etc) and insert the VWAPSD indicator 'DBVWAP_SD', you should be able to see pvp, VWAP and SD bands....

The array is set to 3000 for s&p and nq as they have 4 ticks per point. If you use er2 or something with 10 ticks per point you will want to double array to 6000 and inside the indicator change all start points to half of that from 1500 all of them would now say 3000. Or just make it real big for everything...

For some reason...in the code you will see two places where there is "minmove/pricescale" depending on how your computer sees minmove...you will need to have just minmove or minmove/pricescale. So if it is not working properly it will need to be just minmove...haven't figured out why that is...we are still in beta testing but hopefully it works for you.

Let me say thank you to BAMBOO's ADE that I used for tradestation. It is fantastic! Thanks to everyone here on this board for their sharing and help.

Hopefully this can be of use to some of you. Again I am only posting as I can't keep up with all of the emails. Also, this is what I used for myself on NQ and ES. Use at your own risk.

Also, you can add as many SD bands as you want. Inside the VWAP indicator you just add another plot statement just copy the 2SD plot and change the multiplier from 2 to 3. I saw someone wanted the 3SD as well. Please if someone else can assist other members with their questions I would greatly appreciate it...I just don't have the time right now. Thanks in advance.

Good luck to all and your trading.

I won't be able to answer any questions as I can't even remember what I was doing...I apologize in advance...it has been about 6 months.

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

Thank you dbntina for your kind contribution. Those installing this for the first time will likely also need ELCollections by Bamboo.
Quote:
To install the ELCollections library, just perform the following steps:

1. Unzip the zip file into a directory.

2. Copy the ELCollections.dll file to your tradestation program directory (e.g. C: \Program Files\tradestation 8.0 (Build xxxx)\Program).

3. Import the ELCollections.ELD file into tradestation.

4. Install the library in your brain. In other words, read the documentation! This is a big library, so studying the documentation will save you a lot of time and effort in the long run.

Version History
1.00: Initial beta release.
1.01: Read very long lines from text file. Improve performance with string keys (works around TS issue).
1.02: Many new functions. See post below for details.
1.03: Updated to support ADE with TypeZero bars.
1.04: Fixed issue with ADE TypeZero data files.
1.05: Fixed ListN.InsertSorted so that it always returns the correct value.

You can check what version you have by opening the ELC_Version.txt file from the ELCollections.zip file. If you don't have that file, you don't have the latest version.

ELCollections is in the public domain and may be freely used and distributed.
The ELCollections software is offered "as-is", with no warranty, either express or implied, of its suitability for any purpose.
My limited understanding of PVP is that it is the Peak Volume Price or the closing price at which the current peak volume (highest volume of the day) had traded; however, apparently the PVP calculation is more complicated than that.

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

thrunner...thanks for your post. I don't believe they will need to install ADE. When the indicator was created it included all of the ADE information needed to run the indicator. It appears the people that I had been sending it to did not need to install ADE either.

HOWEVER I could be wrong. Thank you for posting the information just in case it is needed. I appreciate you including that.

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

question dbntina or whomever might know:

does the PVP indicator work on historical charts --- or does it need to be collecting data in the 1-tick chart in order to calculate PVP? (and therefore only works on a go-forward basis if that 'data-collection 1-tick chart' is left open)?

thanks,

frank

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

no ...pvp must be collected live. Don't refresh the window either or I think you might lose the data as well if I am remembering correctly.

Everything else can work historically (VWAP and SD bands).

good question

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

thanks,

one other thing just so I know. forget VWAP/SD for this question. just pretend I want to watch PVP only.

if I have my 1-tick window minimized and my 2-minute chart is up running PVP --- how does the pvp calculation in a 2-min chart know to pick up the data from the 1-tick chart and not vice versa (that is, why doesn't the 2-min data feed into the 1-tick chart if both are open and running the same indicator)?

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

Frank,

That is the awesome thing about what BAMBOO on the tradestation forums created. He is an awesome programmer and he created a programming addon that allows ts programmers to do some really cool stuff.

One of those is to be able to pass variables stored in one chart to another chart in a different timeframe.

That is how it is done. The information updated on a 1 tick chart is passed to the 2 minute chart for example and plotted realtime.

Basically it is all in how you call the variables. I am calling the variable from the tick chart. You have to understand BAMBOOS ADE to be able to do it properly because technically you could do it in reverse like you said.

It is fantastic. Thanks Bamboo!!

Re: TS Tick by Tick PVP Plotted with VWAP and SD Bands

thanks dbntina,

I just loaded this up an hour or so ago and right now my 1-tick chart shows the correct PVP (it matches the highest volume bar that is in my 'Matrix' window) --- while my 2-minute chart is slightly off. I assume that in the future, there won't be this discrepancy (once it has collected the data).

I trust that the code is working --- but the 2-minute chart is not right now feeding off the 1-tick chart. is there a rule that you know of where the 2-minute 'catches up' to the 1-tick chart? would be useful to know when the code begins to 'kick-in' and draw off the 1-tick chart.

thanks so much

frank
