Hello everyone!

Could you take a look at the attached screenshots and the indicator attached. The thing is that at some occasions the indicator crosses the zeroline and plots an arrow which after refreshing the chart is gone. That happens not so often but pls clarify whether this is the way it should be or it's a bug. If a bug pls fix it.

TIA

Hi Yigal,

Everything looks good, in case your not familiar would suggest you do a search around the forum for either SSA or Triangular Moving Average Centered. What is going on is especially in lower time frame actually all time frames, just more pronounced in lower, is these indicators are recalculating their positions, which means a lot of times what your seeing now very possibly will change.

Did you try out this pivots indicator : https://c.mql5.com/forextsd/forum/77/pivots.mq4

If you set the ShowFibosto true it will show fibos. Let me know if that one is what you are looking for

Hi Mladen,

The Pivots indicator works great with an online chart. However, I found that with an offline platform it doesn't show anything. Is it possible to make it display on offline chart ?

Thanks

Since offline charts are not standardized at all (seen a lot of different ways people wrote code for offline charts), some questions :
- in your offline chart, what is the name of the symbol (is "EURUSD" for example changed to something+"EURUSD" or anything similar

- pivot points are time bound. How is time treated in your offline charts?

Hi Mladen,

Thanks for your response. Regarding your question, the symbols are shown as they are on my offline chart. Example: EURUSD is shown as EURUSD. As for your 2nd question, I'm not clear about how to answer it, so I attached here a screen shot of my offline chart.

Data of my offline chart (above m1) is converted from history data I downloaded. I use offline platform to develop EA, backtest EA, and manually backtest trading strategies.

Thank you Mrtools,

However i my understanding it should recalculate itself without being refreshed, should it not?

Try out this version too too see if it will work or not

If it is not working, can you somehow, attach the offline data you are using so that I could test it too?

Yigal, when there is a new tick the indicator refreshes itself, and at the same time it is receiving new data to recalculate its position.

Mrtools,

That is exactly what is not happening. I have to remove indicator and attach it again in order to recalculate/refresh. And basically that was the original question. I don't mind it recalculating itself, but it's pain in the ... to constantly change timeframes or removing/attaching the indicator. Sorry if I didn’t make myself clear.
