" If price leaves the midpoint behind then you can use HOLO or a daily open.."

Are you refering to HOLO on any intraday timeframe of ur choice? or did u mean something else?
Also, if price leaves the midpoint behind, woudn't it also leave todays active daily open behind? In your chart for example, price is already way below daily open....or were u refering to a weekly open / monthly open / an earlier day open from a while back? Thank you

What I had in mind was that if price starts trading below the highest H1 open that you can elect to trade against the bias.

I use daily opens for the monthly bias.

Thank you Mighty One, I was assuming you were looking at Daily and H1 charts and not the Weekly / Monthly charts. My bad.
And in the chart I think, this is the prior month's midpoint and not the current month's developing midpoint?

Thank you

I am sure that there is a shorter version

EDIT: the only problem that I am having right now is that the chart doesn't update unless I change periods.
I will probably wrap this code in an "extern bool AUTO_MIDPOINT = false;" for now.
EDIT2: & I need to find a better formula for outside bars...

Code: Select all

`      If(AUTO_MIDPOINT){   //outside bars   if(high > phigh && low < plow){   if(close > open){Mid = (high + open)/2;}else   if(close < open){Mid = (low + open)/2;}}else   //no breakout   if(high < phigh && low > plow){Mid = (high + low)/2;}else   //breakout one way or the other   if((high > phigh && low >= plow) || (low < plow && high <= phigh)){   //no deep retracement   if((high > phigh && low > pmidpoint) || (low < plow && high < pmidpoint)){   Mid = (high + low)/2;}else   //deep retracements   if(high > phigh && low < (pmidpoint + plow)/2 && close <= (pmidpoint + phigh)/2){   Mid = (pmidpoint + low)/2;}else   if(low < plow && high >(pmidpoint + phigh)/2 && close >= (midpoint + plow)/2){   Mid = (pmidpoint + high)/2;}else   if(low < pmidpoint || high > pmidpoint){   if(high > phigh){ Mid = (pmidpoint + high)/2;}else   if(low < plow){ Mid = (pmidpoint + low)/2;}}}}else   {Mid = (high + low)/2;}   `

Code: Select all

`    if (PriceEntry == 0) {   if( Price_Choices == 1) PriceEntry = iOpen(0,timeframe_const,Price_Shift);   if( Price_Choices == 2) PriceEntry = iClose(0,timeframe_const,Price_Shift);   if( Price_Choices == 3) PriceEntry = iHigh(0,timeframe_const,1);   if( Price_Choices == 4) PriceEntry = iLow(0,timeframe_const,1);   if( Price_Choices == 5) PriceEntry = Mid;   //if( Price_Choices == 6) PriceEntry = MidBody;   }`

This part of code make problem with auto update. After first run PriceEntry is != 0.

### Re: The ideas that I trade by:

The risk space defines the min/max entry, which is in turn given by recent volatility (line size). The SL is much more important than the entry. We need an SL to lean on, calculable bias, and some momentum trigger. Or, for a liquidity providing strategy, a pullback after the momentum trigger. If we are able to get in inside our risk space, i.e. less than calculated noise, while fulfilling the req's of SL, bias, momo, then the entry itself has edge.

Buttoned version made for my needs.

Buton C - hide/show comments on all chart
Buton L - hide/show lines on all chart

New Settings:
HideLines = false
Show_Macro_Buttons = true
+Buttons settings+

If HideComments=true button C is red. Comments are hidden on selected chart, click on button = comments visible for 10 sec.
If HideLines=true button L is red. Lines are hidden on selected chart, click on button = lines visible for 10 sec.

Button P - tool for size calculation or check/vilualize SL.... many ways to use it. Click to on/off.

You need have a ticker if you want more smooth work. I use Metatrader Ticker v3.5.
