  1. Swing volume

    I think Weis is using ATR, not percentages or points, for the ZigZag. I will add the ATR parameter to our ZigZag, then do your ZigZag Volume thing. As an aside - $500 for an indicator? Really? I'd be rolling in $.
  2. Swing volume

    Look at MT's "Zig Zag" indicator. Make sure the Zig Zag lines are turned on. Are those the same lines as in Weis' indicator? If so, I could make an indicator that would accumulate the volume for each zig zag line like in the indicator to which you linked.
  3. Add indicator on top off and oscillator?

    Here are the two paintbar files. Add these two underneath your RSI and link them together. One is for upper BB line, the other is for lower BB line. You can change the parameters in the paintbars to modify the Bollinger Bands. Make sure to make the paintbar widths minimal (2) and make the shape something like a triangle so that they don't interfere in drawing the lines. This is not the best or most elegant solution. Paintbars are really not fully suitable to create new indicators. But the custom indicator editor is not there yet. BBforRSI.PBExport
  4. Add indicator on top off and oscillator?

    If you mean bollinger bands that have the oscillator as an input - yes, it is possible to do with Advanced Paintbars. See https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/advanced___enhancing_an_indica.htm For Bollinger Bands you'd have to basically calc the SMA and add/subtract mult*StDev If you are not a programmer that could be difficult. Later today I guess I can post detailed instructions on how to do that here.
  5. Grid Lines Customization

    It will be in next beta. In Chart Display settings.
  6. Grid Lines Customization

    Well making thick grid lines kinda defeats the purpose of grid lines. They should not be obtrusive. Will look into style setting.
  7. Support added for RITHMIC and POLONIEX

    tedd: what site's data? Are you referring to all candles on the daily charts or just the last? Most candles are shown just as they are returned. Last candle is built from intraday Open, High, Low and Last, which should be done using the 247 timeframe - that is UTC0 to UTC0. Could you send a chart and point out the issue on it? A bit of a background: as I mentioned before every crypto exchange has the bizarre method of showing change and volume on a rolling 24-hr basis. That is, if they show change of -10, that's 10 less than the value 24 hours ago, not 10 less than at the beginning of a session. That's because they don't have a concept of "sessions". Again, as I wrote before, that makes the volume and change variables completely useless to a trader. If it is "-10" from 24 hours ago 5 minutes ago and "-5" now, that doesn't give you a sense of the movement of the price, because it may have gone up now because it has gone down in the same 5 minutes 24 hours ago. I really don't understand why they all adopted this weirdness, my only explanation really is that the first exchanges were founded by amateurs who had no idea how these things are supposed to operate and the later-comers just copied it. We noticed that with every exchange, if we asked for daily candles, the resulting data came aggregating the days on UTC0 boundaries. So we made a "247" timeframe that goes UTC0 to UTC0, 7 days a week, and jumped through hoops to set up sessions for those exchanges so that the change you see is from the UTC0 that day, and so is the volume.
  8. Integration of Spotware brokers

    To clarify: how does this work? This company is not a broker themselves. It's a software company. I see that one of the brokers that they provide services for is Gains Capital. But Gains already has an API and we connect to it. Does this provide a different API for Gains? Also, from a quick glance at the API, they don't seem to provide streaming market data API at all. Correct?
  9. Access to Bitcoin Charting

    Hm. Please do a backfill, and when/if fails, go to the File/Help/Send Log/Settings to Support - and mention the problem.
  10. Access to Bitcoin Charting

    I find the rolling 24 hour timeframe completely useless. When you see "change" on a currency, you want to know that it means it went up or down in the last X hours (since the start of the session). When these sites use the rolling24 thing, a big negative change, for example, may mean that the value went down hard OR that it went up hard at the same time 24 hours ago while staying about the same right now. Or anywhere in between. It doesn't give you the sense of what's going on. I really don't understand why all these sites stick with this. It's pointless. There's a reason why EVERY other market has trading sessions and tracks things accordingly. These guys just want to be different for difference's sake? And they have to jump through hoops to do the rolling frame, because it is a lot harder to track on the server side. Weird.
  11. Webroot

    Webroot tells us they whitelisted MT and everything should be ok now.
  12. Midpoint of Candlestick

    I will look at adding it as an indicator.
  13. Switch Statement

    C# is not C++ (though some of the syntax is similar) First, saying "top 25% of a candle" is ambiguous. Is the range of the candle High-Low or the absolute value of (Open-Close)? But if you take it as High-Low then: "Candle closes in the top 25% on a green candle condition" would be (Close >= High - (High-Low)*.25) && (Open<Close) the inverse of course would be (Close<=Low+(High-Low)*.25) && (Open>Close) also note that the scan runs on the last candle, which may NOT have completed yet. If you want to run it on completed full candle, you should run it on the previous candle to the last one. Which means all values should have [1] index. Like this: (Close[1] >= High[1] - (High[1]-Low[1])*.25) && (Open[1]<Close[1]) How exactly are you entering it (I presume as an Advanced scan) that it doesn't work?
  14. Switch Statement

    The paintbars (well, Advanced paintbars) are C# code. So any syntax that C# allows can be used. Don't know what you mean by "plot" - we have the function SetYValue (it is documented in Help) with an example here: https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/advanced___enhancing_an_indica.htm?zoom_highlightsub=SetYValue
  15. Momentum scanner

    Glad to hear. We really worked to make this as efficient in terms of both CPU and memory as possible.
  16. Momentum scanner

    You're scanning 1000 stocks. How's the speed?
  17. Add column

    Will do.
  18. Horizontal line indicator on historical charts

    Fixed it. Also added "quarterly" period to Historical Horizontal Line. Will be in next beta.
  19. is possible to...

    Thanks for the suggestion. Will look into it.
  20. Screenshot function

    Alt-PrtScrn works (and, unless you turn that feature off, "prettifies" the screenshot of the chart somewhat). Of course, you need to paste it somewhere afterwards. I will talk to Jerry about maybe saving the auto-named PNG somewhere as well.
  21. Transfer MT to a new computer?

    You can rename that to anything you want. There should be a "rename" option in right click menu. Or "Properties" and then you can name it in there.
  22. Transfer MT to a new computer?

    1. Do a fresh download and install on a new computer. 2. In the Dashboard, on the old computer, use the File - Export/Backup option to create an export file. Can include data if you want. 3. Copy that file on a flash drive 4. Run the new computer's install. Log in with same login as on old computer. Put the flash drive into the new computer. Do File - Import/Restore and point it to the flash drive's file.
  23. These are on youtube. Critiques are welcome. Part 1: ... and Part 2 Part 3 is coming explaining Advanced scanning.
  24. Releases of new Tutorials - will post them here.

    Added a new Paintbar Tutorial video - Part 1. If you watched the Scanning tutorial, you will notice it is similar. That's because paintbar and scans are closely related
  25. raw data window symbol switching

    The "raw data" window is passive. It shows what the system has for the stock. It doesn't by itself request data for the stock. The only windows that request data for stocks are portfolio windows, or chart windows if they are set to "Active Subscription" in settings.
