@tomsk Is there a scan code for this script? Would like to scan for daily signal on watchlist

@tomsk Hello, I use the ZigZagPercent indicator in TOS. I take the 14 period Avg Percent True Range and multiply it by 2.5 and use that sum as the reversal amount.

How can I replicate that with your inputs:
input PercentAmount = .01;
input RevAmount = .05;
input ATRreversal = 3.0;
input ATRlength = 5;

Thank you for your help

Hello @tomsk and @BenTen,

I hope I don't bother you, but I would like to know if it is possible to add to the indicator a bubble that shows the % of retracement between one swing and another, and finally, if it is possible to add a plot as targets that marks some % selected as target (e.g. 61,8% y 100%).

I have been trying to do some of that but my knowledge is very basic and it always gives me error in the calculations and plots that I do.

Thank you for your time and I hope it can be done! :)

@tenacity11 do the candle colors appear at real time and stay or do they repaint?

thanks

zigzag /harmonic pattern, can someone please convert it for TOS?

Hello experts,

Hope all is keeping safe. I am wondering if we have a way to automatically plot ANDREWS pitchforks based on SWINGS - say using some ZIG ZAG setting to detect the pivots and then using them to automatically plot Andrews. This site has shown it work.

Done manually:



please advise...

Hello Ben,
I love the candlestick color identification of the swing high and swing low throughout the chart. Visually is great to see high and low.
When I am add ing more indicators to the upper chart, the chart can be eyes soring. I am trying to change different color of the lines but still very cluttering on the chart.

Is it possible to not display the swing high and low lines, only keep the magenta, and cyan candlestick coloring.
Thank you!

# As requested by chillc15 I have modified [USER=1174]@RobertPayne[/USER] code to include SwingHigh
# points which are now plotted in CYAN with the swing high points painted in PINK.

@mdtn I added the indicator and I don't see any candlestick coloring.



If you wish to hide all the swing high and swing low lines, I would go to the indicator's settings and uncheck the "Plot plot" option for each of them.

You are fantastic, I have unchecked the plot and it's working. Candlestick is there, when I look at the source code, I make sure it's not commented out at the bottom.
Thanks again Ben!!!!

Ben,
My chart does not have arrow, I am curious how you enable that on your chart.
Thanks

@mdtn You must have disabled it from your indicator. It should be the HighArrow and LowArrow. Make sure to check for the Show plot option for those two.

I do not see any HIghArrow and LowArrow that I can uncheck. Can you please show me the picture. Thanks
