NMA Swing Explorer

42 sec read

I had added few more codes to the NMA Buy or Sell Signal to make it exploration possible. The purpose of the Exploration is to
identify the stop loss of any kind of trade at the given time.

Note : The Candles of NMA are different from the normal candles as HaOpen, HaLow,HaHigh,HaClose are involved rather than traditional Open,High,Low,Close check out the formulas for Heikin-Ashi Technique here. And the system uses ATR trailing stop loss along with Heiking-Ashi Technique. In the Exploration i had added the HaClose and Close as the Stop Loss and Reverse is purely based on HaClose and not on Close alone. So if HaClose is greater than trailing ATR stop loss then it is a Buy Signal else it would be the sell signal.

Using the NMA Exploration AFL I had given the Stop Loss and Reverse for Nifty 50 Pack.

    Kindly let me know the procedure to calculate the trailing ATR stop loss.

    Appreciate your time and efforts.

    Best regards,

  10. Sir would like to share a afl which can scan hns pattern would like if you share it with all here is the code

    have back tested the same and its working fine hope you like it sir

    x = Cum(1);
    per = 5;
    /* H & S */
    pR = PeakBars( s11, per, 1 ) == 0;
    endt1= LastValue(ValueWhen( pR, x, 1 ));
    medt1=LastValue(ValueWhen( pR, x, 2 ));
    startt1=LastValue(ValueWhen( pR, x, 3 ));
    C1=x==endt1 OR x==medt1 OR x==startt1;

  11. This is another code which can scan the cup and handle formation hope it benefits to any one


    //Left side of Handle formation can occur anywhere from 2-25days – look at the last 25 bars and get the number of bars since condition met.

    LH=HHV(Close,25); // Highest close past 25 days.
    BLH=HHVBars(Close,25); // Tells us # of bars that have past since high reached. Used to determine lowest bar.

    BH=LLV(Close,BLH); // Lowest close since the highest value was reached/
    BBH=LLVBars(Close,BLH); // number of bars that have past since lowest value.

    NBLH=BLH-BBH; // this is the number of bars in the formation of the left side handle. NBLH must be atleast 2 to be a valid handle formation.

    // Now lets get the cup formation. Cup formation can occur anywhere from 23 to 145 days. The left side of the cup can be from 20-120 days and the right side can be anywhere from 3-25 days.

    // get the right side of the cup(low).

    BC=LLV(Close,BLH+25); // look at 25 bars since the left side of handle.

    // get the left side of the cup.


    // Get highest value before left side of cup started to form.


    Delta= LC/KC;

    //Calculate the up/down relative price value during time frame RC (Right Cup Formation)

    URPV = IIf(Ref(Close,i*-1)>Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1),Ref(Volume,(i*-1))*Ref(Close,(i*-1))-Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1),URPV);
    DRPV = IIf(Ref(Close,i*-1)<Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1),Ref(Volume,(i*-1))*Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1)-Ref(Close,(i*-1)),DRPV);
    } while (i1

    // Calculate Beta

    DRPV = IIf(Ref(Close,i*-1)<Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1),Ref(Volume,(i*-1))*Ref(Close,(i+1)*-1)-Ref(Close,(i*-1)),DRPV);
    } while (i2
    // 2. Bottom of the cup must be lower than the left top of the cup.
    // 3. Left handle must be lower than or equal to the lect cup formation.
    // 4. Bottom of the cup must be less than the left handle.
    // 5. Bottom of the handle must be > 80% of the left handle + 20% of the bottom cup.
    // 6. Start of cup/handle formation must be greater than precedding chart value. LC>LC
    // 7. Minimum price and volume you can set any way you like.

    Filter= NBLH>2 AND Close>BH AND BC<LC AND LH<=LC AND BC<LH AND BH.8*LH+.2*BC AND KCMinPrice AND MA(Volume,30)>MinVolume;

  12. Rajandran sir you have been doing a great job and just wanted to add on some notes 🙂 hope the family is benefited

    Sir one more thing can you share a afl code which can scan stocks which are near to LC & UC bands, both the stocks nse and bse, plz?


  13. 14.10.2010

    Hai! Mr. Rajandran,

    Using it by double clicking on it and it displays the chart.

    Is it possible to make the AFL such that it scans all the stocks in AmiBroker (100+) and gives an alert when a buy signal or a sell signal is generated in HOURLY charts?

    Looking forward to an early reply from your end.

    Best Regards,
    Kartheek D. N.

  14. 15.10.2010

    Dear Mr. Rajandran,

    Thank you for your reply. When using Automatic Analysis using Explore function, get to know which is in BUY MODE and which is in SELL MODE.

    Here in AmiBroker, have set the chart to display in HOURLY view. Sometimes, a buy signal/arrow or a sell signal/arrow is shown in the HOURLY chart. Each stock has to be clicked separately to see if any signal/arrow is showing.

    So, is it possible for you to add a few lines of code in the AFL to show automatically that a buy signal/arrow or a sell signal/arrow has been generated in the HOURLY charts when it scans in Automatic Analysis under Explore function and post the AFL here to download?

    Looking forward to hearing from you at the earliest.

    Best Regards,
    Kartheek D. N.

  15. Hi Rajendran:

    As I don’t have Amibroker charting backage, is it possible to create a Excell spread sheet to create these signals based on daily O/H/L/C input?

    Aprreciate your help.
