  1. Candlevolume

    Candlevolume charts? Would be nice.
  2. Volume BUG

    Thanks again. I've been trying to reproduce it. The following plots something quite interesting, but different to MT version. b = Param("b",100,1,1000,1); // number of bars to perform calcs on EMAVol = EMA(Volume,b); // EMA of volume based on 'b' bars of data emamax = HHV(EMAVol ,b); // highest value of EMA volume in last 'b' bars average = Sum(Volume,b)/b; //average volume in last 'b' bars mx = HHV(Volume,b); // highest value of volume over the last 'b' bars. Using variable 'mx' instead of 'max'. croppedVol= max(emamax,Min(average *6, mx * 1.02) ) ; Plot( croppedVol, "",colorGreen, styleHistogram);
  3. Volume BUG

    Mike, does the first mention of 'max' return the maximum of the 2 parameters in parentheses? It's different to the second mention of 'max', yes?
  4. Volume BUG

    Thanks Mike. I've never seen this sort of treatment of volume on any other platforms, but it allows a much better visualization of accumulation in microcap stocks which can have enormous one day spikes in volume.
  5. Volume BUG

    Quick volume question for Jerry/Mike. How do you code "not scale by max" in relation to the volume plot? Thanks.
  6. Swing volume

    Hi Mike, I've been looking at how the wave volume works in real trading and I think it's worthwhile, even though it necessarily has some forward looking bias. So long as one waits for the completion of the previous wave, all is good. Particularly useful when applied to a range candle chart. This video explains it nicely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzpTeFhBvYo What would be most helpful is to color the candle at which the previous wave is completed, as an indicator that the signal is now valid. Thanks for having another look.
  7. Swing volume

    Hi Jerry, A cumulative volume for each zig-zag swing. As per Weis. Separate window. Thanks. Looks like this- https://tradingpsychologyedge.com/weiswave/
  8. Swing volume

    Sorry, yes he does use ATR to prevent future leak bias. It's based on Wyckoff method, and that name holds a lot of sway in trading as you know. The coding for it would be very basic. $500 is totally ridiculous, I agree.
  9. Swing volume

    Weis uses close for the zigzag, and I notice that's possible with MT. So yes is the answer. Thanks Mike. I think the sensitivity will need to be a lot finer for the % change. Like say 0.00001 up/down arrow increments.
  10. free account restriction

    Yes I checked that. They definitely weren't minimized - nothing at all was open as depth or charts. However after Win10 updates and several restarts it's working again. Thanks Jerry.
  11. Jerry, MT is telling me I'm not allowed to have more than 2 charts open, and I haven't got any open at all. Thanks.
  12. Hi Jerry, Bell Direct AU can filter the entire stock market (2500+ stocks) based on criteria the user chooses. It has an export facility (circled), and I'm hoping we could have a one click import of the stock codes shown on the page. They'd just need an :ASX suffix attached, and have them appear in the "add symbols" window. . Thanks.
  13. Hi Jerry, The scan start icon isn't clickable for custom scans, only for pre-defined ones. The other day it worked ok. Market is in session. Thanks.
  14. au.ADVFN

    Hi Jerry, Can we have MT query au.advfn for it's tops list gainers please for ASX? Say the first 3 pages would be great. ADVFN has built in filters which cuts down on a lot of work. https://au.advfn.com/insights/toplist/ASX/percentage-gainer/price/2 You might need an account. Free to sign up. Thanks.
  15. au.ADVFN

    Actually this might not work for me. Live data is fairly expensive.
  16. Is there a way to combine scan parameters? eg. turnover > $10 mill AND % gain > 5?
  17. Hi Jerry, Fantastic new feature, thanks.
  18. Hi Jerry, I've been trying to migrate to a new computer and MT is saying the p/w or email are incorrect. So I deleted the MT folder and re-downloaded. Then Panda AV says "w32/Exploit.gen" detected in the downloaded file. So two questions - 1) how to start up on a new PC? and 2) What's the AV detecting? Thanks!
  19. Migrating to new computer

    Thanks. Pw reset working now. Not sure why I had problems before.
  20. Scanner - requesting a discussion

    Hi Jerry, I like the idea of being able to filter an entire stock universe, but I'd like to be a reasonably quick process. eg. Show only stocks where ROC > 2 AND ATR(1) > 5 and turnover > 10 million. Thanks a lot.
  21. Nail It

    I can't seem to 'Nail' the MT window for permanence. Is it just me? Thanks Jerry. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Enhancements/Other-Desktop-Enhancements/Nail-it.shtml
  22. Stock filtering

    Would be very handy if MT allowed filtering of large numbers of stocks (say 1000) based on column criteria. eg. filter any stock >10% rise with turnover>$5mill.
  23. Stock filtering

    Thanks Jerry. There's precious little out there that can do this efficiently. I don't subscribe at the moment, but I probably would for that feature.
  24. bid:ask ratio

    Hi, I'd like to request a graphical column for bid:ask ratio please. And make it similar to the "pressure" in appearance. Make it for the top 1/3/5 levels of depth. A good indicator supply demand. Thanks for considering.
