Great Script I added this to my chart... the short lines not the advanced market moves.

Code:

Interesting to note the advanced market moves indicator fired along with the pivot script arrow on the hourly.

I am liking this. Thanks for sharing, J007RMC.

My coding skills are lacking - just starting to learn. I have tried to insert BUY / SELL commands to use the FloatingPL but just not getting it right. Would you please help? The following seems off and I know it can be written better to work with what you have done. I'm not sure how to adapt this to your initial order, the add to order, plus stops and trailing stops.

AddOrder(condition = confirmed, type = OrderType.BUY_TO_OPEN, price = close, name = "LE");
AddOrder(condition = stop_hit, type = OrderType.SELL_TO_CLOSE, price = close, name = "LX");
AddOrder(condition = trail_hit, type = OrderType.SELL_TO_CLOSE, price = close, name = "TrailStop");

Thanks,
Rick

They do, I wait for the pivot shelf to settle with this script I use a swing hi/lo script catching the swings is important to me to look for the swing highs and lo's.... here is the kicker

Help with turning a study into a scan. I can’t find who orginally posted this if it was here. There two seperate studies one for Longs one for Shorts. I’m trying to turn one into a scan: The scan says to remove labels. I did, must have at least one plot. This is where I’ve tried to alter the study to get results with no luck.

Here is the original clean code for the study. Can someone help me turn this into a scan please??

Ok these are the changes I made: created a study; and used the study and said TRUE: I only got a couple results on a D and not on smaller time frames. I think I may have figured this out and i’m so shocked and happy I’m finally learning this stuff. Let me know if there is something else I may have missed:

if c crosses below LP_Low
then confirmation_count[1] + 1

def confirmationX = if confirmation_count crosses above 0
then x else nan;
def confirmed = confirmation_count crosses above 0;
