    We will add an "HA" toggle button next to the "Intraday" and "Historical" buttons on the Scanner tab. That way your scan will work on HA candles.

    the problem with Bittrex is that they do not seem to have a public API for streaming data. They have stuff for trading and snapshot data, but not streaming. We are keeping an eye on it in case it changes, or in case we can reverse engineer their streaming stuff

    Nice one there. In general, I find that candlestick patterns are not well defined in the literature, and some are definitely of the "you'll recognize it when you see it" variety with very vague terms.

    I'd add to that request integration with sms alert provider(s). Would be a huge benefit since the platform is only available on your PC. I currently have them with Questrade and its really useful when you are away from the trading platform. Cheers, Jeff

    Not all heroes wear capes... LW... you sir are my hero. Have no idea why I never bothered to try actually clicking the on chart pace... I'll set them both to 9 and see if they sync up tomorrow.

    On my chart the top Pace is using a 9 period. If you want to change the top Pace put your mouse over it and right click to change it. The bottom Pace looks like it is default at 20 period. If I change the bottom one to 9 it shows 26.4238 where the top one shows 26%. Hope that helps.

    Note: you don't really need the "returns" (well, the "And Stop"s) in that last rule. It stops after the last one anyway

    Can someone check on the value of the Red and Green dots on the TTM Squeeze. I had thought with the "Squeeze" line == 0 for green dot and == 1 for red dot, but that only works on 3 of the 5 listings here using the same time frame. (monthly) Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Here is some info I found that may help. * After looking into the TTM Squeeze indicator I see: 1. Red dots mean no trade. 2. Green dots means the indicator is on. 3. A red dot followed by green dot means the indicator has fired and volatility is expanding. 4.Trading: It is said that - The bars (histogram) going up or down is a measure of momentum. Going long comes when you have a red dot followed by a green dot and bars going up. Going short comes when you have a red dot followed by a green dot and bars going down. ** How I start a paintbar. Like you are doing in the pic I start out in the basic editor and then move to the advance editor to fine tune. **1 & 2 above** With the "Squeeze" line I have found with == 0 for green dot and == 1 for red dot. if (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze == 0) then you get a "Green Dot" if (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze == 1) then you get a "Red Dot" **3 above** Indicator has Fired To test for a red dot followed by a green dot I found something like this: One bar ago dot was red and on current bar it trying to stay green. if ((TTMSqueeze_Squeeze[1] == 1) && (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze == 0)) If someone would want the signal to confirm first they can move the bars back one. if ((TTMSqueeze_Squeeze[2] == 1) && (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze[1] == 0)) **4 above** With the "Bar" line like in your scan I have found: Bar > 0 Above the 0 line. if (TTMSqueeze_Bar > 0) Bar < 0 Below the 0 line. if (TTMSqueeze_Bar < 0) Note: I've notice that you will have a bar all the time but they do not show if the value is very small like -/+ 0.001 I changed my indicator colors so I could see this. When I watched a video they used the dots and bars that could be seen to maybe go long or short. More testing needed on this one to find the right bar values that show. For now I'm going to use -/+ 0.0015 so I can see the bar instead of 0. *** Now that we know the basics we can add more values together. If we were looking for a entry to maybe go long you need something like: Red dot followed by a green dot and then bars above the 0 line. if ((TTMSqueeze_Squeeze[1] == 1) && (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze == 0) && (TTMSqueeze_Bar > 0.0015)) If we were looking for a entry to maybe go short you need something like: Red dot followed by a green dot and then bars below the 0 line. if ((TTMSqueeze_Squeeze[1] == 1) && (TTMSqueeze_Squeeze == 0) && (TTMSqueeze_Bar < -0.0015)) Since the market is closed I have not done much testing and I can't verify everything now.

    Hi LW, Thank you for helping with the scans. In the process, I am beginning to understand a little bit on how it is done! Yes, the frequency of the alerts is not often, hence the need for the alerts to ensure their occurences are not missed. I will be testing the scan over a week to see the results. Once again, thanks for helping. Much appreciated!

    Remove the "Use Wilders" param I will look why Wilders causes such problems.

    1) no - annotations on historical charts will not show on intraday 2) as for horizontal trendlines - just hold down the SHIFT key while drawing a trendline.

    please add the K.Scuts to select type of chart (Line, candlestick, ohlc, etc...) Is useful to change chart on the fly, pressing only 2 or 3 Keyb button. Both for intraday and Historical. Thanks...

    GDAX and Binance for now. Others will be added if their API permits. Working on making a Depth Chart (we like to call it Canyon Chart) in MT. Here's a sneak preview.

    TD Ameritrade fixed their data. I just backed out our fix, since that would again cause the data to be an hour off. Same instructions to get it as in the original post. NOTE: After restarting, clear the data on the chart(s) and backfill again. Existing data will NOT be fixed.

    Actually, merlin, that indicator doesn't work right (yet, I guess) in MT. It is problematic because the zigzag indicator is backwards-changing. That is, if the current candle changes, the indicator may change to be different completely starting many candles back. So the weiss wave will change accordingly - not just on the last candle but on the last N candles where N can be big. Frankly, not only is it problematic to calculate (because MT really tries to calculate all indicators as state-machines), but it detracts quite a bit from its usefullness, if the indicator's overall shape may suddenly change not just for the current candle, but for the last N candles.

    Hi, I have just subscribed to premium version of MT after trying it few days. MT is really a gem in the world of trading platforms and the responsiveness of the team is amazing. I didnt know the previous tool but seems to have a lot people praising Medved's products. It became in few days my central dashboard for day trading, yet it is not perfect and I would like to share some wishes about what I would like to see or improved in MT: - first of all, and the most important are the trading actions. I use IB as a broker and it offers a lot of different ways to submit orders, I dont want all but the most important for me is to be able to send an order with an attached stop and optionally a profit target. As on IB (and other software) i d like to have options to setup dynamic stops based on % or ticks, and also trailing stops. In the same topic, I dont know if it s a limitation of MT or IB API, but I m not able to submit out of trading hours orders to IB (they are hold until market opening) - another feature i d really like to see, is to be able to add indicators to portfolio / watchlists with numeric or graphical results. Very similar to the scanner. - now, something less important, on the DOM ia nice add on would be to have a column showing PnL for each price level when having active positions. - A break even line on the graph (maybe it s already possible) when having active positions would be nice I know it is not yet xmas, but I wanted to share this wish list. Congrat to the team for this great tool and I m looking forward to see it even better

    Hi; you can link trade ideas with MT opening the linking feature of TI , create a link and dropping it in one of the "raw data" of MT. Will not work with the chart, but works good with the raw data. I used it last month.

    We do not currently have integration with Trade Ideas. We hope to add it in the future. Meanwhile, I know that TI has a feature where it can link to other software by basically sending the keystrokes to type in the symbol into that software. That works in MT if the screen you link it to has a symbol text field to type into. Charts do not. However, what I have seen others do is open one or more charts. Open a Raw Data window. Link all of them. Then have Trade Ideas linked to the Raw data window since it has the symbol text field. Since the charts are linked, any time the symbol changes in the raw data window, the charts will change as well.

    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

    For people other than MTG that are looking at this thread - next release will include "3-touch trendlines" as an indicator. Feel free to try out and comment.
