Topic: TrueInRow(STDDEV20*4<=3*ATR20,100)
Posted: Thursday, September 28, 2017 12:01:54 PM


Thank you.

  I will have to pay attention to this..."have a space between TrueInRow and the opening parenthesis or something similar."  This may be the problem .

 So any formula can be appended with a numeric value restriction at the end.


< or > or =   some number less than the period number.

   I keep getting error messages trying to create a pcf for bars in the squeeze :


I think the above is what gives me the error message.


The error says I need a (  at position 9.

Please help.


Also, when using something like the above, if I want to only include situtations where the squeeze has lasted at least say 3 bars I just append it with another condition at the end like this:

TrueInRow(STDDEV20*4<=3*ATR20,100) >=3

Is that correct?

Thank you,

Topic: V17 trading software questions
Posted: Friday, September 08, 2017 2:36:07 PM


   No one asks anything about the trading software aspects of tc2000 on these forums.

Can I do so here? Maybe set up a new discusssion forum?

I am not fully understanding the buy  and sell from an indicator functions that seems so promising:


I need to study it more and play with it in the paper trading.


Also, the v17 software new capabilities allow column generation from not only pcfs but also from chart-generated conditions. The web based v12.5 doesn&#39;t allow the latter. 

Is this correct?

Many thanks,

Someone from Worden please make stickies available for tc2000 help videos and tutorials

Specifically,                  ... there are 5 major topic areas  ...  trading stocks and options  ...     pcfs  .... indicators and morningstar fundamentals  ...  troubleshooting


There are also these tc2000 tutorial videos :

Topic: PCF for TSI 3,9 rising

   Many thanks for this. It is quite straight forward.

Posted: Thursday, September 07, 2017 2:25:53 PM


 In your template for TSI, there is no mention of referencing previous bars unlike almost every other indicator.

Is this just an oversight or the unfortunate reality?

Also, please create a pcf for TSI 3,9 rising if that is possible.

Many thanks,


True Strength Index (TSI)

This is the same as the SMI Ergodic Indicator.

Template (v17+)

XAVG(XAVG(C - C1, s), l) / XAVG(XAVG(ABS(C - C1), s), l)

Where s is the short period.
Where l is the long period.


The following is the formula for a TSI3,9.

XAVG(XAVG(C - C1, 3), 9) / XAVG(XAVG(ABS(C - C1), 3), 9)

Topic: BOP interpretation especially divergences
Posted: Thursday, August 24, 2017 1:45:41 PM

 I want to start a discussion about BOP interpretation and how people are using it in their trading.

I have found that when BOP is clearly diverging with price on a longer time frame chart, eg. D, that if I go to the next shorter time frame charts eg. 4H, 2H they will confirm the price action.

If the shorter time frame charts don&#39;t confirm, then I am more confident that the price action will soon follow the trend of BOP on the D, 4H,2H charts.

In summary, I like to always contextualize BOP and see agreement in BOP trends over multiple time frames. Often the D  and longer time frame BOPs lag price action.

I think it is important to always look at the BOPs  of longer and shorter time frames than what I am trading. BOP columns can help with this.

I want to know whether any BOP divergence from price is likely from lag or is likely real.

I do believe in very strong BOPs ie. >70 especially nearing 100 that are not yet confirmed by price action as eventual big movers but it can sometimes take several days or even weeks for it to happen.

BOP extreme values can be very useful as leading indicators.

BOP can be very frustrating.

What are your thoughts?
