Ratio equation:

HighVal = iHigh(rSymbol,rPeriod,i);
LowVal = iLow(rSymbol,rPeriod,i);
open = iOpen(rSymbol,rPeriod,i);

xRange = HighVal - LowVal ;

tRange = 100 * ( HighVal - open ) / xRange ;

This is the ratio of (high - open) / (high - low). Buyers winning when > 50. Seller winning when < 50.

Range equation:

HighVal = iHigh(rSymbol,rPeriod,ii);
LowVal = iLow(rSymbol,rPeriod,ii);

xRange = HighVal - LowVal ; // range

tRange = xRange / point; // range

That is range from high to low.

In both indicators, the stats displayed are the tRange values.

Thanks Tro, I may be over thinking this but what does the attached mean?

Out of the last 168 bars, 12 bars had a ratio between 30 and 39. 12 represents 6.06 % of the bars

Ok cool, got it. Thank you Buddy.

Thank you for your support.

Eh, not exactly...and my new year's resolution is to post as little as possible.

Code: Select all

`  I do not calculate my R/R per trade: if I am risking 2% then exactly -2% is a loss and my win goal is a win. Let's say that my total risk (aka a 'risk-box') is \$200 and I risk \$50 to bring in \$50: 1. I did not lose \$200 so there is no 'loss' 2. \$50 is not my win goal so there is no 'win' The trade is in limbo until either condition is met; -\$200 or +\$x If it is not a 'win' then what is it? It's the mythical substance known as 'OPM'  :)  The next trade is going to be 25% larger, \$(250/200), while THE risk (your money) stays the same: I make no distinction between 'profit' and 'in profit'; it is just 0 & 1, loss & win goal. If the risk is the same (1) and the profit potential is 25% larger (1.25) then is it still 1:1 if I risk 10 pips to make 10 pips? No, because 10 is not the total risk. Because I am 'stacking', risking 10 pips (2 'lines') to make 10 looks like this: +0.25:1, +0.31:1, +0.39:1, +0.48:1, +0.61:1, = 2.04:1  If I give the market \$50 then I have 6/8 of my risk-box to work with & I can maintain my psychological strength where as if I had lost \$12, \$15, and \$23 then I might be dismayed at having lost 3 trades in a row.   Whether or not you believe in OPM the math is the same; you are simply thinking about the problem in a way that is most beneficial to you: 1. Risk is \$200 & I have \$50 OPM: if I lose my \$200 (one has to lose the OPM first) then I have \$200 less than what I started with. 2. Risk is \$200 + \$50: if I lose \$250 then I have \$200 less than what I started with. When you say "other people's money" you are not saying that the money is not yours, you are saying that the source of the money is outside of yourself. EXAMPLE: If I have \$1000 then how many times can I lose \$200 of my money? 5 times, right? How many times can I lose \$200 of your money? An infinite number of times...I can lose trillions of other peoples money no problemo: OPM is infinite, 'my money' is not, hence the distinction.`

I like this post and thought process. 20 pips has always come back to be a sweet spot for currencies. I am curious about DAX, S&P 500, OIL, GOLD, Bitcoin daily stats though.

Mostly you don't really consciously think about it but when you are pushing an extreme on the Daily, then your brain - well mine anyway - is automatically thinking that there's a big Stainless Steel Rat coming.
