ProRealtime custom indicators enhancement request


Recommended Posts

Good day,

 

Wouldn't it be great to have Buy and Sell Arrow Style types when designing your own indicators in ProRealTime?

 

Let me try to explain what I mean by that...

 

I develop a lot of my own/custom indicators in ProRealTime. As a lot of my indicators are designed to show buy or sell signals, I like to overlay them on a price chart, showing the Buy and Sell signals directly on the chart. But, as the options for returned variables are limited to line, histogram, points, line and points, and invisible, what I do is choose point and set the Width to the thickest line width. What this does is create a nice fat square on the chart. I then colour Buy signals green and Sell/Short Sell signals red. This works ok, but wouldn't it be great (and make more sense) if the standard PRT Buy and Sell Arrows were available as Style options?

 

The software already does this in a way with BackTests. When you run a backtest, it shows the entry and exit points using the (green) Buy and (red) Sell arrows.

 

Why not make this available to us also? Should be a simple enough (read quick) change.

 

Would appreciate some comments...

Hi Sferreir,

 

Thanks for your suggestion. The point (forgive the pun) you have made I can see would add value for other users, as it would be able to indicate signals in a more definitive fashion and would also be more aesthitcally pleasing.

 

I have contacted Pro Real Time on your behalf to find out if there is a way of doing so conventionally or by using code. Once they get back to me I will let you know.

 

Thanks again for sharing your idea!

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
