Wall-paper tool

Another example of the wallpaper tool for MarketScope 2.0. It supports several graphic formats (including png, bmp and jpeg). The tool can not do any resizing, so if necessary you might have to resize the graphic with an external editor (e.g. Paint, XnView or most graphics editing applications).

You can use it for your favourite car, dog, family pics, company logos, etc.

(See original post)

A gift for the holidays !

A little gift for Christmas !

This indicator / tool displays "wall-paper" graphic on the MarketScope chart.

Here is it, with some seasonal graphics, but you can use anything.

Simply enter the full file-name of your graphic, the size of the graphic and the desired position (e.g. top-left, middle-centre, etc.). You can also select a colour for transparent mode, and the overall transparency.

You can download this indicator / tool for free from here.

The sample graphics that I used here can also be downloaded from here. (I do not hold the copy-right for these graphics, they are just something I obtained from the internet for free. As far as I know it is freely distributable clip art.)

  • The default path for finding the graphic files is normally the TradingStation install path, i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Candleworks\FXTS2". But you can specify any path and file-name (remember to add the extension, e.g. png, bmp, jpeg, etc.). I think it is also case sensitive.
  • You need to enter the graphic's size (width and height) manually. You can get this from Windows, e.g. file properties or mouse-over the file and it should tell you. Resize the graphic if required.

Happy Holidays every one and all the best for 2015 !

No surprises here - oil is the clear loser...

I just made a small change to the Currency Strength Meter.

Release 16:
  • Added “EMA” display mode option

This is in addition to the SMA, RSI and MAC options for post-processing the raw currency strength values.

The updated indicator is available for purchase from the blog. Existing users can download from the usual place.

Supply Demand indicator added to the "Mega Bundle"

I've added the Supply / Demand indicator to the "Mega Bundle". But, I'm keeping the price fixed at the current GBP 150 until at least the end of the year (31/12/2014). So, this one is great value - over 35% off compared to the individual prices.

Development Schedule

I've got a number of things on my development "To-Do" list.

Line Sync Tool
  • Add "clone / copy" command
  • Add arrows
  • Add rectangles

Supply/Demand Indicator
  • Some more tweaks
  • Add outputs for alerts

Composite Profile
  • Add outputs for alerts

Currency Strength Meter
  • Add a "matrix mode"

Zig-Zag Indicator
  • Add "daily start time" to reset the zig-zag

Divergence Indicator
  • This is a new one that is still in development, more work is required.

There's probably a few other little things if I think about it. Some of these have been on my list for months, it's just taking me a long time to get to them. I'm going to busy for the run-up to the holiday season, but hopefully I will have some time over the holidays to close off a few of these things. Thank you for being patient.
