Not working. any other ideas??
It sets the timeFrame variable in the stringToTimeFrame() function and when it does not find any of the standard time frames it sets it to chart time frame.
The line that start with default : means that if none of the listed time frames (usually acase with renko) is found then MaSlow should be equal to RenkoSlow and MaFast should be equal to Renko fast
Check it. Simply add a line that will write the values of MaSlow,MaFast and time frame after that block of code and you will see what values do they have. Here is how it looks like on my chart with that line written like that (EURUSD chart, defult parameters and I am runing renko on EURUSD)
Do not forget that it is a multi symbol indicator and that you have to have all the included symbols made as renko with the same "false time frame" otherwise it will not find appropriate symbols and time frame (so you have to have EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, NZDUSD, USDCAD, USDCHF and/or USDJPY as renko offline chart with the same "false" time frame if you want to use those in calculation
mladen, a 4 TimeFrame version of the Absolute Strength of Averages_mtf 2.02
Here you go
I want to thank you so very much for your current creation of the newest version of the Absolute Strength of Averages_mtf 2.02 indicator. I believe this is the culmination of all of your prior ABSA indicators with limitless positive attributes.
1.) Would it be possible for you to take this 2.02 indicator to a whole new level and create the new 4TF (4 TimeFrame) exact version of this non interpolated indicator with the exact same 4 conditions as in the original 2.02 indicator?
This new 4 TF version
- only shows the dots /squares of 4 Time Frames (current time frame and 3 higher time frames) and
- would have NO original non interpolated lines and NO signal lines, only rows of 4 dots and
- would be the same colors as in the original indicator: LimeGreen, Red, Green, and FireBrick.
2.) Then could you please also add the usual alerts to this new 4 TF version of this indicator where:
- A buy alert is signaled by the 1st row of all 4 lime green dots after a prior setup of at least 1 red or firebrick dot on any of the 3 higher time frames.
- A sell alert is signaled by the 1st row of all 4 red dots after a prior setup of at least 1 lime green or green dot on any of the 3 higher time frames.
3.) I think you know where I’m going with this.
I hope there are no buffer or arrays conflicts here.
Thank you one more time for all of your tolerance, patience and tremendous invaluable assistance in this continuing ABSA saga.
If 4 colors are to be used, only 2 time frames can be displayed from one indicator (due to metatrader 8 drawing buffer limitation and a drawing buffer in metatrader 4 can have only one color)
Thank you for this important info. Can we create a 2 TF version but then be able to pick which 2 TF I use even if neither is the current TF?
Then if yes, if I put 2 indicators on my screen to then cover all 4 TF, then can we also create a separate indicator for alerts that covers both of the indicators to cover all 4 TF ?
If not, is there another way to get the alert part of this created, since that is the essence of what I am creating?
Thank you so much.
Yes it can be done that way (regardless of the time frame you are going to use)
Then please let's do it !!
I can't wait !!
You are absolutely awesome !!
Is there any other info that you need? I hope my post about 4TF ABSA 2.02 was clear about what/how I was trying to do. Please let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks so much for all your help with this.
No need for additional information
Rewriting the indicator to free buffers for drawing and as soon it is made as a function, then it will be ready for a final 2 time frame version
Here is the indicator. It displays 2 time frames but we forgot that those dots have actually 5 states : they have a state when nothing is displayed. Could not solve to make it as internal indicator so the indicator has to have the "AbsoluteStrength of Averages_mtf 2.02" in the indicators folder too. As you can see it is showing that 5th state too
Thank you so very much for taking the time to create this indi for us all. I am expecting great things to come from your efforts here. Unfortunately, I have to apologize for having some difficulties setting up the new indi with both 2.02 and the 2 TF indicators in the indicator folder.
I get only 2 red boxes in every row throughout the chart even though I have set up the inputs as usual. No matter what I do, I can't seem to set up the 2 copies of this 2 TF indi properly to create the 4 rows with the correct colors.
I entered same ma method, same length, signal, smooth, and New Signals set to true as before . I don't see an interpolate input to set to false, so I assume that it is already coded in the indicator. I'm not sure what order to set the 2 time frames on each copy of the 2 Time Frame version.
Also not sure how to set the colors on the color section since there are #0 through 7 and only 4 apply to the step dot color boxes. I simply left them in default position. I simply assumed they take care of the 2 diff time frames for 1 indicator to use all 8 #s of colors.
I am very sorry for my own ineptitude, but what am I doing wrong?
I really appreciate all your help on this project as always. Thank you very much.
