w2jc Customized Indicators
for TradeStation Users

http://tsindicators.jimcooper.biz
[ Last revised: 2017 July 23 ]

Over the past few years, having become fairly good at EZ-Language programming and never being satisfied with the 'stock' indicators that come with Tradestation, I have both created new indicators and greatly enhanced many of the stock indicators to add features I thought would be useful on my charts.

Prompting from friends and other users is nudging me down the path of making these various creations available to other TradeStation users in the hope that they too will find them useful.

Before I can make any of my customized, enhanced indicators available for a fee I need to prepare a description and instructions for each one - a User's Guide. Therefore, if I continue with this venture I'll be making them available one at a time -- as I can get them properly documented
(I strongly believe in readable and useable documentation!).

So far, we have publicly released (on a very limited basis) our PINBALL FINDER scan and chart display, the DIRCON Directional Control console package, and the very handy UNIVERSAL MOVING AVERAGE indicator (see below). Versions of the Ichimoku Cloud indicator and trading package are now in use, as are our MACD and Composite ADX indicators.


Volatility Stops - similar to what is in TC2000 and Think or Swim


This is a very useful indicator for use with TradeStation charts, which has not been easily available in the past. It calculates stop levels based on the ATR of the recent candles/bars on the chart, which is a measure of the stock's volatility. This indicator provides a form of trailing stop, but the trailing is not based on a fixed percentage or dollar value; rather, it is based on the volatility (candle size) of recent trading.

The Volatility Stop indicator can also be used as a "trend reversal" indicator, when the stop levels flip to the opposite side.

In addition to displaying the Volatility Stop levels on your chart, this indicator can also be used to SCAN for all stocks that have just switched trend direction. This is an excellent scan to detect potential breakouts just as they are happening.































A special, unique feature of our Volatility Stop indicator is the option to turn on what we are calling "un-stops" which are on the opposite side from the normally displayed stop levels. These are generally not spaced the same distance away as the actual stops, but they have been found to be very useful for spotting resistance levels about to be encountered in the trend direction.

The chart below, which is the exact same chart as shown above, has the "un-stops" shown -- with arrows pointing to the display of resistance levels they show.

Another feature of this indicator is our unique and informative alert messages, which can be audible as well as text.

Very descriptive alerts are included in this indicator, which are configured so that audible alerts will be informative even if you are across the room and cannot see the chart! The alerts include the ticker, the time base of the chart ( # ticks, # minutes, daily, weekly or monthly), the type of chart (even Point & Figure!), the direction of movement, and a repeat of the ticker (in case you missed it at the start of the alert!). The company name can optionally be included in the alert messages.

Tickers used in the alerts are generated with a space between each letter, so that the Windows text-to-voice speaker used by TradeStation will pronounce them as individual letters instead of trying to pronounce the ticker as a word.

Money_Line by TraderAbe


This is the very best trend indicator I have seen so far !! And our version for Tradestation
has many special features -- color coding to show trend (or lack of trend); special color coding
at potential trend reversal points; and complete, descriptive text and audio condition alerts.
It can also be used in the TS Scanner, to find any or all of the trend status conditions.
Latest enhancement lets you use Radar Screen to display MoneyLine? status of watchlists.

MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) with up / down and trade indications


Another package that I am now making available publicly is my "MACD with up/down indicators" indicator - this indicator not only shows the "line" and the "histogram" display with one indicator, it also shows FOUR different colors on the histogram so you can immediately see the rising histogram begin to fall, and the falling histogram begin to rise! The Line display is color coded, so that when the line and the moving average are very close you don't have to guess whether the indicator is rising or falling. And finally there is, along the zero line, a set of "traffic light" dots which indicate when you should be long, when you should be short, and when you should not be in a position.

Ichimoku Cloud

with simulated trades shown on chart - User Guide (current version) - 2 week trial

An excellent tutorial on using the Ichimoku Cloud can be found here * they also have training courses available.


Comment: I believe that this implementation of the Ichimoku Cloud is one of the sharpest and clearest
presentations you will find anywhere - plus it has all the extra features noted above!

Note: indicators shown in the lower three sub-graphs are not included with the Cloud package.

Needless to say, this is a very customized arrangement so it is not something that can just be downloaded right away and installed.
Once you place your order, we will set everything up and make arrangements to get the files to you -- depending on your level of PC skills,
and we will work with you if necessary on the installation and setup.

Purchase now for only $189.      For more info, please send email to Ichimoku@JimCooper.org

Enhanced Composite PPO/ADX Indicator


Another package that I am now making available publicly is my "Enhanced Composite PPO+ADX" indicator. The original concept for interpreting this pattern came to me via a webinar that was presented at the end of August, 2013 by was a guest in Steve Bigalow's Candlestick Forum. The presenter uses this concept to look for when one indicator peaks while the other indicator is in a valley. My concept was that two coinciding peaks (or valleys) are easier for our eyes to spot.

If the PPO were inverted, so that the valley in the chart above was instead a peak, then the peak of the two indicators would coincide and probably would be much easier to spot visually. I also noted that when the original PPO (above) peaked at the same time the ADX peaked, there was often a "topping" reversal - which is also nice to find! And since I was writing the code, why not have both indicators included in one package so that they could be loaded in the same sub-graph area with one "Insert Analysis Technique" action ... Many other enhancements have been included since then - they are described in the User Guide. (page 4).

TradeStation does not have the PPO Price Percent Oscillator as a standard indicator. This package gives you the PPO along with the ADX in a combination that can be used to implement a bit more advanced version of the original "squeeze" concept.

This is an advanced level indicator, as it requires some understanding and parameter adjustment for proper use. Please read the User Guide to be sure you understand the concept and the adjustments before placing your order.      Try it first! 2 week trial

PINBALL SETUP FINDER


The PINBALL chart pattern was first recognized and named by Rick Saddler, who operates the HitAndRunCandlesticks.com web site and training room.

I (Jim Cooper) have developed and coded an indicator for use with the Tradestation charting and trading platform.
This indicator displays, on any stock chart, the presence of the PINBALL PATTERN, as well as showing the ‘buy area’ which Rick suggests.
(The chart below shows an example of a chart with two PINBALL patterns).






The current version of the User's Guide can be fetched from here.





For more info, questions or suggestions please email me at:
pinball@JimCooper.org






In addition to the chart indicator, I have developed a SCAN which can be used in Tradestation to automatically FIND all the charts
which contain the Pinball Pattern RIGHT NOW… so you only have to look at those charts when you want to set up a Pinball Trade.

For now, we have set the price at $150 as a flat fee basis. This means you get everything you need to set up the Pinball Finder
on your Tradestation charts and scanner; it will be coded to work only in your account, but it will work on ANY PC you log in from,
as long as you are in your account. We will provide you with not only the indicator, but also a workspace template with everything installed for you.

Needless to say, this is a very customized arrangement so it is not something that can just be downloaded right away and installed.
Once you place your order, we will set everything up and make arrangements to get the files to you -- depending on your level of PC skills,
and we will work with you if necessary on the installation and setup.

RSI Histogram & Line

RSI is usually interpreted by whether it is above or below
the center-line, so why not display it as up and down bars
(like MACD is often displayed)? This indicator provides both
the usual Line plot as well as up/down Histogram display; you
can display either style or both at the same time.

Rounded Bottom Breakout (RBB) pattern finder

The RBB pattern was detected and described by Rick Saddler, who is also known for detecting and describing the T-Line
trading techniques. The RBB is a powerful bullish breakout pattern, but it is a hard pattern to scan for because it can be
formed over a short time or a long time, it can be shallow or deep, etc. Click here for RBB User Guide & Description.

"Yellow Brick Road" - marks candles in "chop" condition (times to not trade!)

One of the fastest way to lose money trading is trying to trade during periods
of what is called "chop." During these times, it is best to find another chart!
But how can you spot this condition easily? Our "Yellow Brick Road" does it
for you, by marking the candles as "yellow bricks" - warning you not to trade.
