Question

I am trying to customise Momentum and Williams %R indicators so that the relevant indicator lines are more visible when they cross the key levels. This is how these two indicators are presented on the main IG main platform, where: –

– The Momentum line turns green when it goes above the zero line and red when it goes below.

– The W’ms %R changes colour at the -20 and -80 levels. (Both are per the IG main platform in Dark mode, but I want the added features of PRT).

I am aware that customising indicators is possible in PRT but I am not code competent (or confident!) to try to do it myself.

Can anyone tell me how to do this and better still provide me a code to copy in to Indicator Customisation menu to play with.

Have never used this forum (or any other) as am in my 60’s and much of the lingo is klingon to me. So keep it simple,… Please.

Hi, if you can pick an indicator from this library we can work out the code you are looking for.

Is there any indicator in that library that gets close to what you are looking for?

There is also a forum where people can point you in the right direction as well:

Thanks for yr interest jlz.

There are no Momentum codes in the list but there is a Wms %R code. The latter seems to have been written in 'Spanglish'! (and possibly a while ago) and so I am unable to follow exactly what was intended and therefore reliability if downloaded.

It is the Momentum customisation that is key - the Wms %R would be nice so that one could customise others once seeing how it is done.

GraHA over on the PRC forum seems to have achieved it in answer to my identical question there but I first delayed in reply, due to not being notified of his input, and then misread what he had put. But if you know how to contact help that seems great from Nicolas, over there, but I had a problem uploading the image that I posted here and asked for help and came there none!.

Very grateful for your reply. Ian

Hi Casey, Thank you. Yes I did and found nothing.

I can do the histogram and this is better than a single, often jagged line. I did not think it would be difficult to do the colour change at the zero (or other selected) line.

I am attaching the seeming successful graph that GraHa on PRC put up but has not got back to me about. (I refer to it in my reply to jlz above).

If you or any other can work out how he did it, in case he does not get back to me, then I would be grateful.670551690_MomentumWmsR.thumb.jpg.9cd71441265dc7c1b8c167fae24b1d72.jpg

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
