    Yep works like I wanted. Sorry again. You can go ahead and delete this

    Demark Sequential

    Yea it is.. saw Demarker and Pivots and totally missed sequential right below it. My bad.
  3. Hey Mike, Is it possible to add Demark Sequential to the scanner? I've really come to like it as an indicator and would like to be able to do a historical scan for securities that have hit a certain number of the sequence. In particular Demark candle 4 or 5. But also it would be good to be able to add Demark 9 to a scan so I know when to look for a reversal. Utilizing Demark with Heiken Ashi has really improved my trading lately. Just sucks because I have to look through countless charts to find something that's around Demark 3-5 and a scan would make things so much better.

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Got it. Thanks. Figured it was something dumb on my end

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Hmmn I went around the settings and set everything to TD Ameritrade as that I could find. I'll see how tomorrow morning goes and get back to you. Thanks Jerry

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Hmmn.. I have the data streams for TD and Ally both enabled in the settings so I can toggle if needed. But when I have a portfolio open its always set to TD Ameritrade by default. Do you mean something like having multiple portfolios open with say one set to TD the other to Ally? If so then not that I am aware of. I do however have indexes like SPY, DIA, IWM, VIX etc on my index panel as well as included in the portfolio. Perhaps that's an issue?
  7. So for the last week or so I've had this issue every morning where the data coming into MT is "jumpy". Meaning like this morning the SPY was jumping from 272.20 to 273.50 within seconds and then back to the correct price. This causes weird candles and screws up all my indicators. I thought it was just the TD Ameritrade stream being glitchy but it happens when I switch to Ally or Yahoo as well so it's gotta be something on my end. After about 10AM or so it levels out and brings in stable correct data and I can clear all and backfill and get everything right again. But that 1st half hour is obviously crucial. Any ideas why this might be happening? I believe I'm using the latest Beta but maybe a setting I toggled or something is screwing with it.

    Coppock Curve

    Any chance in the future you can add the Coppock Curve indicator? Or is there an indicator already built into the platform that is similar? A good amount of the Ebooks I've been reading on option spread strategies seem to be based on the Coppock Curve set to: Short ROC: 11 Long ROC: 14 WMA: 10

    Renko Scan?

    Is it possible or even feasible to utilize the historical scanner with Renko candles? Say with a parameter of 1% alert when Renko forms a green brick after a certain string of red bricks. I'd assume doing it by percentage and not price movement would be the logical way. I love Heiken but seems like Renko could get me in trend reversals sooner.

    Tastyworks support?

    tastyworks | Support Team via pm.mtasv.net 8:39 AM (0 minutes ago) Hello Robert, From what I’ve heard from our developers, they are targeting to release it sometime in Q4. I’ve added your e-mail to the API mailing list so you can stay on top of all things related to the API, Best, Jason Looks like I'm going to have to wait a while.

    Tastyworks support?

    Any chance you guys have any upcoming plans to support Tastyworks within the charting platform? Seems like they have the best pricing structure for options buying on a cash account since Robinhood doesn't support it 😡. I'm a bit spoiled now that I figured out how to buy and sell positions on your platform and I don't want to switch brokers unless you plan on supporting them in the near future.

    Heiken Ashi Red to Green Scan Help

    One last question.. I promise. If I wanted to take that code you posted above and mesh it together with these indicators from another paintbar is that possible? I tried it myself but I am getting {} imbalance errors. Or am I asking too much of one scan? // Var Name: "ADX_PlusDMI" contains ADX(8,10).PlusDMI // Var Name: "ADX_MinusDMI" contains ADX(8,10).MinusDMI // Var Name: "FULLST_Line" contains Full Stochastic(14,3,7).Line // Var Name: "FULLST_Signal" contains Full Stochastic(14,3,7).Signal // Var Name: "MACD_Main" contains MACD(12,26,9).Main // Var Name: "MACD_Signal" contains MACD(12,26,9).Signal public void MainCalculation() { if (ADX_PlusDMI.CrossesDown(ADX_MinusDMI, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator3, PBShape.X); TriggerAlert("ADX DOWN"); SetScanResult("0 ADX"); } if (FULLST_Line.CrossesDown(FULLST_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator6, PBShape.S); SetScanResult("1 -Stoch"); } if (MACD_Main.CrossesDown(MACD_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(0xFFFF0A0A, PBShape.M); SetScanResult("2 -MACD"); } if (ADX_PlusDMI.CrossesUp(ADX_MinusDMI, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator2, PBShape.X); TriggerAlert("ADX UP"); SetScanResult("3 ADX"); } if (FULLST_Line.CrossesUp(FULLST_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator11, PBShape.S); SetScanResult("4 Stoch"); } if (MACD_Main.CrossesUp(MACD_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator2, PBShape.M); SetScanResult("5 MACD"); } } if (Close[5]<Open[5] && Close[4]<Open[4] && Close[3]<Open[3] && Close[2]<Open[2] && Close[1]<Open[1] && Close>Open) { SetScanResult("Green after 4 reds"); } else if (Close[5]>Open[5] && Close[4]>Open[4] && Close[3]>Open[3] && Close[2]>Open[2] && Close[1]>Open[1] && Close<Open) { SetScanResult("Red after 4 greens"); }

    Heiken Ashi Red to Green Scan Help

    Awesome thanks! Now is it possible to combine this same logic both ways in the same paintbar for an intraday scan? So say I want to play it for daytrading calls and puts on 5 min charts with HA. I want it to also alert when 5 or more green candles happen in a row and then a red so I could play a put. I've tried combining them together in the simple editor and it seems like I'd need some sort of command to break in between. My only solution is to have two identical portfolios open running opposite scans. But that uses alot of computer resources. Can they be combined?

    ROBINHOOD is now available for trading!

    Sucks.. I was looking forward to trading options on Robinhood once you got it enabled but found out today they DO NOT allow you to trade options unless you have instant settlement enabled for your account. Which means you can't access them on a cash account so you're subject to the PDT rules unless you have the 25K. Seriously PO'd because once RH options got enabled on MT I was going to go straight cash account and options heavy. Back to Ally for options for now.

    Heiken Ashi Red to Green Scan Help

    I see. No I don't want to mix HA with regular. I want to create a scan I can run EOD after close on a portfolio that has about 1500 symbols. What I a want to scan for is a stock that had at least 4-5 red HA candles in a row and today had a green. I know this can probably be done quite simply but I am having a hell of a time accomplishing it 🙃 The screenshot attached shows what I am trying to accomplish. Please forgive my primitive Paint skills
