Trust me my friend. None of the coding wizards care about coding elegance. They just want it to work.

Congrats on: deciding to get your hands dirty by going under the bonnet of CrapQl4; hammering away at it until you made it work. This is bang on the best spirit SHF. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I would like to present to the forum a TDesk-compatible modification of Nanningbob's 10.7 CSS indicator. I hope that this indicator opens up new possibilities for TDesk setups and usage. The coding wizards in the forum must forgive the crude nature of the modifications. They are hardly a thing of beauty, but the point is: everything works, and we now have an additional weapon in the TDesk armoury.

The modified indicator in this post, "10.7 CSS UBD", provides data to TDesk using a Universal Buffer Drone. Get your TDesk and UBD files from the usual locations.

Note: The modified indicator displays only four numerical values: it aims to provide a "feed" to TDesk via UBD, for the respective pair being analysed. If you want to see all the coloured lines and values on your chart, add the traditional 10.7 CSS indicator as normal.

The features available from this indicator are:
Buffer 0 contains the strength of the base currency. If we were examining EURUSD, this would be the Euro strength as derived from the traditional CSS calculations (+0.14 at the time of writing);
Buffer 1 contains the strength of the quote currency. Continuing with the EURUSD example, this would be the Dollar strength as derived from the traditional CSS calculations (-0.54 at the time of writing);
Buffer 2 records the number of consecutive movements of the base currency in a particular direction. At the time of writing, the EUR has been weakening for ten consecutive days, resulting in a movement value of -10;
Buffer 3 records the number of consecutive movements of the quote currency in a particular direction. At the time of writing, the USD has been strengthening for six consecutive days, resulting in a movement value of +6.



Attached to this post are some setting files, to illustrate how UBD could be used to relay CSS signals to TDesk:
BC-Str.set shows how to compare the base currency strength against a defined threshold (+/-0.2, as indicated by Nanningbob), and send LONG / SHORT signals accordingly;
QC-Str.set shows how to compare the quote currency strength against a defined threshold (+/-0.2, as indicated by Nanningbob), and send SHORT / LONG signals accordingly (note the signal inversion due to being the quote currency - after all, we would usually seek to trade a strong currency against a weak currency);
BC-CM.set shows how to compare the base currency consecutive movements against a defined threshold (for instance, we watch for four days of consecutive strength/weakeness), and send LONG / SHORT signals accordingly;
QC-CM.set shows how to compare the quote currency consecutive movements against a defined threshold (for instance, we watch for four days of consecutive strength/weakeness), and send LONG / SHORT signals accordingly.

This is how TDesk appears at present with all four usage instances included:


I hope all of this made sense. Have fun everyone, and shout out if you have any queries.





Thank you for the 10.7 CSS setup. Do you think is it possible to use Slopybuffers indi instead of 10.7 CSS?
See attached the Slopybuffers indi and the UBD Slopybuffers set file.

This definitely is a nice new toy!

:clap: :yahoo: :clap:

Thank you for breaking this down into a TDesk compatible thingy. In my opinion tomele has been visionary with his Multi Signal. Personally, I am only beginning to understand its strength and possibilites.

Especially with your UBD compatible version of Nanningbob's 10.7 CSS we could have another four rounds to load the Multi Signal weapon.

:smile:

Cheers,

Mat

Big Pippin to all!. I'd like to offer up an indicator that I found useful. It's a no-lag MACD that I use for counter trend trading. I am trying to develop a set file which will send the signal when a signal is plotted on the chart. The signal is plotted on the very first histogram/signal line crossover after a zero line crossover. That way you can re enter on pullbacks. Problem is that this is a UBD indicator not a USD. So I don't even know if it's possible. I currently I run one a single color MACD like this with 2 separate UBDs one for the signal line zero cross and one for the histogram signal line crossover. It was easier to program. Any who, If anyone's up for the challenge, have at it. Otherwise hope it helps someone out.

Just curious what makes it zero lag? Do you have any evidence for this, if it truly is it will be useful :)

Big Pippin to all!!!

Hey C1borg,

I don't know the math behind it but I use this indicator in two ways.The histogram and the signals The attached photo is the current CADCHF M15. I did not cherry pick this. I have also attached the normal MACD to the chart as well so you can compare. The histogram colors indicate play direction. So when talking about my trading strategies (Range and counter trend trading) the buy setups are:
1. Histogram and signal line on the bottom of the zero line
2. Histogram bars turn from red to green

The further away from the zero line the better. Sell set ups the opposite way.

The arrows that the Indicator displays on the main chart signify only the first color change per zero line crossover to try and clear out some false signals and clean the chart. It doesn't repaint so of course those arrows won't always be the best entry/exit because we can not predict the future. That combined with the histogram helps me out a bunch because they show price direction change almost instantly, and it is easier to read than the normal MACD in my opinion (which means crap lol). I think it would go great with confluence of S/R lines or pivots.

Using it with the normal MACD histogram, there's one buy trade in the middle of the photo. For the trade you could have gotten multiple entries in the same trend.

I have highlighted all the chart signals with lines so you can see for yourself. You can see either the main signals or the histogram depict price movement quite quickly. Thus, no lag. But of course that's all subjective lol. And this is a 15 min chart. Greater TF= less noise.

I hope that helps to clear up the mud.

A quick intervention here.

Just because some cowboy recodes one of the standard indi's, prettifies it and calls it, "NonLag......" doesn't mean squat unless you are an idiot who believes the 'NonLag' bit.

Then you are on a hiding to nothing.

Indicators work on moving averages. These are lagging indicators. There is no such thingy as a 'NonLag' i.e. works on data presented now that will be predict the future. There are good and cogent reasons why we do not have, for example, NonLagHGI and NonLagSuperSlope. Trust me folks, that were such thingies possible we would have them in a heartbeat. And we would all be filthy stinking rich.

If you ever thought there was such a thingy, then think about it for a few seconds and then feel foolish.

This does not mean that so-called, 'NonLag' indi's have no useful function. That is the liberal part of me speaking.

Here is what I really think.

Would I ever put any faith in one of these cowboy-created Crap Customs Abortions?

Or even bother to have nightmares about using one of them?

Don't be so bloody stupid.

As usual, entirely up to you whether you take any notice of me or not. After all, I have only been doing this stuff for over a decade.

Freaky,

I took a look at the code.

Unfortunatelly there are 7 buffers used in indi you provided. To cut the long story short, limit is 8th buffers for USD/UBD call. Therfore instead of adding 2 buffers to re-write the arrow logic, with 1 buffer not be accessible for USD I used 8th bufffer to put the signal in wtih the states are as follows : 1 for arrow long, -1 for arrow short.

I've enclosed reworked indi code and USD preset for convenience.

I would love to see where it will get you to, when combined with TMA Bands - ins't it what you are doing ?

Goood luck.
Max

Big Pippin Everybody,

Max,

Your are absolutely correct brother. I have been using it for the last 2 months with great success trading manually with S/R and TMA. Now I am trying to automate it since most of the trades take place when I'm sleep. And until I can trade full time automation is the way for me lol. Thanks a million for the USD and updated indi :!!: . I have always been one to try and remain flexible and adapt to life so I have since converted it (with the help of a friend of mine) into a histogram to try and use with TDesk lol. I'll give your indi a go on a demo next week. See how well the play with TDesk. From there I just need to make sure my broker and settings of Tdesk and Desky align and it should be a profitable system. Time will tell all. Again thanks a million for your help Max. I'll keep you posted.

Happy Holidays
V/r,
Osito 8-)
