I'm not sure there is a way to do this in TC2000 but thought to ask, since there have been several new versions rolled out recently with updated PCF coding...
If possible, I'd like to replicate the Andrew Abraham trend indicator from the 1998 Stocks and Commodities magazine....
Basicaly, the plot should compare today's close vs the Daily High in the priior 21 days minu the 21 day ATR and today's close vs the Daily Low in the prior 21 days plus the 21 day ATR and plot the following
I dont know if you are trying to make the same indicator or your version?
The article describes a weighted ATR indicator * 3:
"The calculation uses a 21-period weighted average of the true
range, giving higher weight to the true range of the most
recent bar. The final value is then multiplied by 3."
Is the value of a 21 period simple moving average 12 bars ago.
For some reason there is more than one version of DPO out there.
(My guess: folks not knowing what "detrending" is)
I would call what Bruce supplied, most popular/most logical.
So you can actually have it loaded on to more than two computers,
but only one can be logged into at a time?
How many computers can you have V12-17 loaded on?
Does it matter if it's someone else's IP address?
You also have an extra C3.
You can "add plot" a simple moving average with a period of one.
Then turn the slider for VStop off.
It will be a line but wont change color long/short.
Mavs not plotted on price scale or not plots of the close or not simple averages.
I used %True PCF with visual test.
For example trigger on symbol COL on 12-15-16.
That PCF is correct and worked for me.
Maybe something else was wrong?
Like your MAV plots or chart timeframe?
Ive been doing PCFs like this: HAVG(C,40)
Noticed you use: HAVGC40
Dont know it it matters?
100 * ((HAVGC26 / HAVGC26.13) ^ 4 - 1)
100 * ((HAVGC40 / HAVGC40.21) ^ 12 - 1)
All the ANN PCFs plot correctly.
However these with the HULL MAVs dont show correct values
when put in watchlist columns, or used in conditional scans.
(It scans based on the incorrect values shown in the watchlist)
Just want to check if its a bug or on my end.
The Monthly/Weekly non-Hull ones work fine.
