% change

Postby dannyz » 23 Nov 2009

I am trying to write a %change alert based on if the change on the day is >0.75 or <-0.75% but i cannot figure out how to specify 0.75

i have tried modifing the %change idicator and i tried to break it down just to a long indicator as well as taking off the alerts. my goal is for the indicator just to display the percent change just off the day. and what i am most concerned about is knowing if is >0.75 percent in the long situation.

thanks danny z

can't help you if you are not showing what you have done...


from the little you described,
this is nothing more than a basic programming routine.

my suggestion:
start with the basics,
start with the ebooks here:

Inputs:
price(open),
Length(0);

variables: var0(0) ;

var0 = 100 * PercentChange ( price, length );

plot1 ( var0, "%change");


thants what i have so far. i have picked up the homestudy for easy language as well as mastering stragegies with easy language.

I am using 0 for length because just want to know the percent change on the day. but if i plot that i just get a line. so i changed it to 1 and it looked like a proper indicator. i wanted to be alerted if the change has been >0.75% but i dont know what value i have to use for 75%?

no sense rushing it.
go through the books chapter by chapter
go through the exercise in each chapter

there is a reason for all the chapters -- to give you all the power of EasyLanguage
there is a reason for all the exercises -- so that you know how to use the power



p.s. I don't know which home study you are referring to,
but the "strategy" book might be too advanced for you at this stage.
check with the ebooks, (they are free)
there is a reference guide that gives you all the detailed explanation, instruction, and examples on how to apply the keywords and functions.

can't tell you anything with the little information you are providing...

suggestions:
1. finish the book first
2. confer with the reference guide, you must follow the specific instructions in there

possibly use a trend line alert whereby the trendline is drawn + and 0 0.75% above yesterdays close, and if the last crosses the line ALERT.
(i have no idea how to do it though)
