I am familiar with Hanover's work but it seemed to eat up a lot of computer memory. Will look at this. Thanks.

Fantastic work Gary. Well Done. I loosely compared it with hanover and it seems to show comparable results. Will check it out later when my mind is functioning properly.

Kind Regards

Is it possible to treat this like stochastics for example, with an OB/OS level?

Also, from playing around with indicators, it would seem one could plot the difference level between these various lines, which would oscillate around 0. There may even occur divergence between price and these readings. One could postulate OB/OS levels of these differences for CT trades, being regression to the mean. Just some thoughts.

Hi gary,

live could be so easy, take the CCFp Indicator.
I recommend it some time in an EA board from steve to exchange the hanover module with this indicator but don't know where.

it provides you the same information and works on every TF you like Daily and higher too.

Attached is a modified version with many setting.

Cheers

I know exactly how you feel Gary. Lots of sympathy.

Sq is one of the indi geniuses here, so I have sent him a pm asking him to take a look.

:D

Help? Anybody with indicator experience, can you offer me some advice?

This is such a BLOODY STUPID IDIOTIC model!!! This is WHY there is such a problem with repainting indicators -- because the stupid damn thing keeps recalculating the last few bars, changing its mind retroactively. I've coded indicators on half a dozen different trading platforms and I've never seen anything like this -- nothing this complicated, nothing this confusing, and nothing that produces erroneous repainting indicators. Stupid %@#!$! braindead @%^@$%! CRAP!!T4!! :evil: :evil: :evil:


Hi there....

I know exactly how you feel, Gary...

Coding indicators is a very special activity, requiring a very special mindset, indeed :mrgreen: .

You found your answer by yourself, and sometimes this is the best thing that can happen to you !

You MUST recalculate the EMA for each bar.

Empty4 designers had their moment of lucidity ( :? ) when they decided to provide the iMAOnArray() function...
However, don't think it is now a piece of cake... naaaa.... too easy... :mrgreen:
Because then their tortured minds came up with the ArraySetAsSeries() function...
and you'll start pulling your hair again, believe me.... :shock:

Fortunately enough, if you are playing with "buffers" as the input data, then you can use iMAOnArray() directly on the "buffers" at no extra brain cost...
I let you play a bit with that function...


However, that issue will be irrelevant when it comes to invoking the indicator from an EA, because iCustom() calls will reload and recalculate the indicator buffers every time, so it will give correct output buffer values at each call.


BTW, nice and clean work on the indicator code!

hi garyfritz,

besides the CCFp that Mediator mentioned, there is Complex Common indicator which also looks at currency strength.
CCFp is a trend indicator whereas CC is a signal indicator for H4 timeframe.

Now come on Gary. Stop beating around the bush, and say what you actually think. :lol:

Seriously, you now understand why few of us attempt to tackle both indi and ea coding. My imagination boggles at what you are trying to do.

I just thought I'd mention that it is really easy to creatively build indicators on the thinkorswim platform. For example, I just overlaid the Standard Deviation and Standard Error indicators then plotted the difference between them, and it took like 5 minutes. So if you want to be creative fast, it's real nice. Of course, it won't help if you want to use the said indicator in an EA.
