Gary,

Well I just loaded this new version of the Zones into my Russell chart and it works perfectly. What are the settings you're using?

Eudaimonia (pron.: you-die-moan-e-a) (Greek: εὐδαιμονία) is a classical Greek word commonly translated as 'happiness'. The less subjective "human flourishing" is often preferred as a translation.

Would some of the futures traders please post their buyzone workspaces.

I don't know what the problem is.. it works for some but not for others.

Hopefully, everyone has downloaded the latest version of the buyzone.

I just remembered a couple of things...

1) The BuyZone won't work on the weekends if you are using DAILYOPEN because it is a QUOTE FIELD AND because the current date doesn't match the date of the last bar on the chart (Friday's bar).

2) Make sure your session is REGULAR hours or the open price won't be correct unless the instrument you are trading starts at a different time.

3) If you post your workspace, then others can load it and see if they can figure out what's wrong.

Hi All,
I trade futures (ER2) and just discovered TROs BuyZone a few days ago. I have been using TRO's version without a problem; as long as you uncheck update intrabar.
From what I've seen, I don't think the BuyZone can be backtested and should be traded to be learned (I just started learning). However, I built the following code for myself since I wanted a historical perspective on how the BuyZone works, how frequently it will trade per day, and what the zones should be depending on the instrument.
This code should no way replace the TRO BuyZone which I believe is more robust. Besides, the usage of trendlines is a bit cleaner. However, if you are still having trouble with your buyzone indicator or want to historically backtest it, feel free to use my submission.
Again, this code is pretty raw since I am not a very good programmer. The open price depends on your proper input of the correct time your exchange opens. Feel free to make changes and clean it up. Hope this helps.
Thanks,
JR

The 8:35 bar CLOSES at 8:35 and OPENS at 8:30.

That IS the daily open.

The close of the 8:25 Bar is NOT the daily open.

ZNO:

What buyzone indicator are you using?

If you look at the first post of this trade, you'll see the examples and I mention how to set the inputs including iDecimals.

HTH.
