    Pace & periods

    Yes. This way the pace would be determined based on the current day's action and not on the whole chart's. It is actually a pretty useful number. It also exists as an indicator, thus can be used in scans or paintbars. And I don't think any other software I know of has it . Maybe under some other name...

    Pace & periods

    "The value of pace shown is the total trading volume for the last Period compared to an average volume for such a Period in the last Averaging Period." Let's say period is 10 and Averaging Period is All. What MT does is takes ALL 10-candle periods in the chart - 1st candle thru 10th, 2nd thru 11th, 3rd thru 12th etc etc, calcs the volume for each of those periods and averages them. Then it takes the volume for last 10 candles and compares it (as a percent of) to that average.

    Text only displays on chart it was created on ?

    Well, we do have a help file. Rather comprehensive one, that I constantly maintain. https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/charts_annotation.htm at the bottom of the page, heading " Sharing annotations between charts".
  4. We have an http API that is the same as the old QuoteTracker's API. Anyone can connect to it. If Timing Solution wants to connect to MT for data - give them this link. https://www.medvedtrader.com/www/frontend/blog/HTTP-API

    Straddle pricing

    Will change.

    Straddle pricing

    Current logic: AAPL, Expiration Jan 18 Strike 155. Call: bid 0.77 ask 0.80 Put: bid 1.43 ask 1.47 Straddle bid: 2.24 ask 2.23 Straddle bid = call bid + put ask Straddle ask = call ask + put bid ================================== You're right, it may be incorrect. Straddle bid means selling a straddle, which means selling both a call and a put option? It should be call bid + put bid, since that is what you would need to pay to sell both right now. Conversely, the straddle ask would mean buying the straddle, which would be at ask on both sides. Is that correct?

    Footprint charts

    How much demand is there for those?

    Help asked to make a scan

    Jack, you don't need to know how to program. What you need can be done in a "Simple" scan mode, with two rules. The first one would check if the Close is greater than SMA8 and if not, stop. The second one would check if the Close one candle ago is greater or less than SMA8. Have you seen our youtube tutorials for scanning: this is part 1 is
  9. In advanced code... will be able do something like: if (Any(1,5, Close>Open && Close>Close[1])) ... do something which would mean if any of the candles from 1 back to 5 back are positive and close higher than previous one.... of course, if the condition doesn't fit exactly into an expression, can also do full code like this: if (Close.Any(1, 5, (i, x) => { if (Close<=Open) return false; return (Close>Close[i+1]); } );) ... do something but that is more complex.

    Buy / sell on bar volume

    We cannot implement something from visuals. Need to know how it works - formula/algorithm. Since they are selling this (and not cheap), I don't expect they'd share it.
  11. That's a bit vague. How to combine them? In what proportions? If you have a link to an article discussing this, please post. Also, you can - today - create a paintbar that can use any combination of indicators, use their values in whatever formula you like, and plot the line on the chart.

    Give a link to formula/examples?

    Weiss Wave Volume in paintbar?

    Oh btw. The easiest way to check that it switches direction is to do Crosses (or, if you want to know what switch it is, red to green or vice versa, CrossesUp or CrossesDown) on 0 for the Direction value. Not Value as you have it in the above screenshot.

    Weiss Wave Volume in paintbar?

    This was an omission. Will be fixed in next release, hopefully today. It will have Value and Direction. Value obviously the height of the bar and Direction is either 1 or -1 for positive and negative. You would check whether there was a switch by comparing Value[0] to Value[1] and what kind of switch by checking the Direction.

    Maybe they were doing some maintenance at night.
