Assuming a simple moving average of, say 20 days, 


There are lots of examples in the forum you can search for which will help you set up scans with different criteria

Topic: V17 "Remove (sym) from Watchlist" button
Posted: Monday, February 13, 2017 7:22:37 AM

I observe the same change in behaviour. I don't know if it is intentional or not, but it creates an inconvenience. If I'm srolling down a watch list, and delete one entry I need to reset the scrolling point (ie highlight a stock, so the Space bar will then move me down sequentially. Would be nice to revert to previous functionality. 

I can't document this, but I have a suspicion that deleting a watchlist entry can cause the watchlist to re-sequence. If I'm correct, then this too causes minor inconvenience.

Thanks again. I have it working now. I set the Scaling as "Center on 0".

OK, I'm a bit dense today. What type of Custom Indicator do I create (True, etc) and what is Scaling?

Thanks Bruce. Got it to work with the first two formula as Custom True PCF Indicators, except I deleted the first two characters in each (0/). I was getting errors with those two formula as written (Divide by zero)

Set the Scaling for both as Custom, Bounded by Top & Bottom, Max Value 50, Min Value 0

Did play a bit with the single formula, but as you suggested, couldn't get the scaling to work.

I'm trying to tidy up my TTM Indicator charts, based on the above formula. It looks simpler and faster than the original.

Should STDDEV(20) * 4 > 3 * ATR(20) be a Squeeze Off indicator? If so, how should on set the Scaling parameters? (In my first attempt, the Not True ended up on the zero line, and the True at the top of the chart panel. I simply reversed labels, and it looks OK :-) Then I lost the scaling altogether. When I change the formula in the TTM chart you distribute, I lose dots altogether. Help

Next, I thought, can I combine the two PCF's into one? (Not really combine, because that implies two formulae, but just use one formula). First thought, plot as short (Not taller than a dot) histogram with negative values turned on. But I don't know how to set scaling so histogram shows along zero line.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Looks to me from your post that you have a comma in 1.20, not a period.

Formula works for me in V17 with the period

I think the facility you want is TCMail. its in the Tools option at the top. Your friend needs to send Layout to your TC2000 id, and then you can read or import to your version.
