Any idea what might be preventing me from getting Price and volume data in my personal watchlists? Just started a little while ago (today). My TC 2000 charts all show current, and correct data. 

 

Thanks.

Bruce (or anyone else...), 

 

How would I write an indicator that expressed a 20-day simple moving average of a 50-day average true range ... but rather than expressed as a number (I've already done this), I'd like it to be expressed as a percentage. 

 

For example, I show a 20 SMA of a 50-day Average True Range on AMZN to be 10.07. I'd like that 10.07 figure to be expressed as a percentage (so 1.2% based on the Monday, March 20 closing price). 

 

Thanks.

Thanks diceman. I did in fact mis type my 50-ema reading. Your suggestion worked perfectly :)

Have you seen the built in indicator called "Volitiliy Stop?"

 

Thanks

 

 

I have, and it's a decent chandelier exit idea. But what I am looking for is a volatility based stop based around something other than price (as the anchor).

Bruce, 

 

I was working with the ATR formulas you provided, but am still having problems.

The specific formula I believe I need takes into account the average true range over the prior 50 days. It then multiplies that 50-day ATR figure by 1.5, and then subtraces that figure from a 50-day exponential moving average and plots a line (like another moving average line) beneath an existing (already in place on my chart) 50-day EMA. 

 

For example, the SPY closed Friday March 18, 2017 at 227.77. AThe 50-day exponential moving average on my TC 2000 chart has a reading of  224.75. The Average True Range (50) shows a reading of 1.41. ---> I am looking for a reading (in the form of an indicator that will run beneath an existing 50-day EMA) of 222.635. 

 

That 222.635 figure comes from 1.5 * the 50-day ATR of 1.41, subtracted from the current 50-day EMA reading of 224.75. 

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How would I scan for stocks closing above their 50-day EMA with an intraday range greater than 2 x 50-day SMA average true range? ... Basically a simple volatility scan. Thanks

Thanks Bruce. I'll work with this a bit until I sufficiently confuse myself :)
