Imported Standard Deviation Channel indicator from ProRealCode.com

Question

Watcha guys, 

I have just downloaded and imported the Standard Deviation Channel indicator from prorealcode.com but instead of displaying the channels within the price chart, it is located as a separate (empty) chart altogether below.  Can anyone shed any light on this please? Any help much appreciated. cheers, Rob

if you go onto the toolbar & click objects, then channels it will produce a  drop down menu with the standard deviation channel listed  - click on it, then on the price chart & it'll create the channel

Ah there it is. I was actually referring to the prorealcode STD channel which has 2 standard deviations (5 lines), I downloaded it from prorealcode.com (people create there own indicator and then share them on there, and this is on there). Anyhow never mind, this 1 STD is also very helpful. I don't even think that 2 STDs are necessary anyway actually as the price rarely if ever breaches it, as I understand it. 

Thanks ever so much for your help, I really appreciate it

Hi again, I'm back with another question (sorry). I am not even sure how to articulate it but here goes...

Hi again, I have just realised - I guess you may already know - but the 1 STD line that you revealed to me - the one built in on PRT is actually 2 STDs but the 1st line (above and below the mean line) is not shown

Sorry, basically I would just like to know - when you view the price chart with the 2 STD indicator within it - say in the daily chart, or the minute chart - how high/low do you set the 'LinRegPeriod'? Because the position of the STD lines is obviously dependant on what the LinRegPeriod is set at. For example when I hear a tip that a certain stock is currently at 2 STDs on the daily chart, well that all depends on what the LinRegperiod is set at right? I suppose what I am asking is, is there an authoritative number of units that are to be used? i.e. If I view the 10 minute chart set at 1000 units which would display the last 1000 10 minute interval candles, and adjusted the LinRegPeriod to fit that 1000 units, the STD lines would obviously be situated differently than in the, say, 10 minute chart set at 200 units. 

Sorry if this makes absolutely no sense! I am using my time on furlough to learn day, swing trading. FOMO really. Everyone is raving about it so I just have to find out for myself. Green as grass really.

Any help as always much appreciated,

Cheers, Rob

Hi, the Linear Regression indicator (a single line) and Standard Deviation Channel are 2 separate indicators though they can be combined to give a Linear Regression Channel (using SD or ATR channel/bands).

In the pic above you have just the Standard Deviation Channel indicator (2 sd's from the median line as drawn between the 2 dates in the input box).

Try a search for 'Linear Regression Channel'

Ok thanks a lot Casey. 

Are you the same Casey as the one on the BRT day trading chatroom?

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
