Could you tell me how to change your code for TTM Trend Scan to scan for the first bar from red to blue and from blue to red instead of the second bar? Thanks
Check our Q&A Forum. There are many variations of this listed there.
I know TTM_Trend is available for free on TOS platform, but source code is hidden. Would you have the source code for TTM_Trend? I just want to understand the logic of the code.
I do not. And even if I did it would violate the Terms and Conditions of this website: https://www.hahn-tech.com/terms-and-conditions/
I just discovered your channel .. and very happy I did. Looks like you have a lot of information that could simplify my trading life.
Simple question about TTM Trend (hopefully).. With regard to the TTM Trend candles.. How do I change to the Red / Blue TTM sensitive candles in TOS (as shown in the video) ?
Thanks in advance..
I’m not sure I understand the question. I think you are asking how to get the candles to paint red and blue. You simply add the chart study named “TTM_Trend” to your chart. The code provided with this video is just meant to run scans. Let me know if that answers your question.
Hey Pete, good day Sir.
I’m not able to locate the actual SCAN_TTM_TREND criteria to copy/paste. I’ve downloaded the .ts video provided by your link however I cannot open/access the info. Anyway you can drop that scan criteria into this response? I recall in the past it was available off the site but again I cannot locate the script.
The file you download is not a video. The problem you are experiencing is because you are trying to open it. You cannot open these files. They must be imported into Thinkorswim. Just save the file to your hard drive and import it.
ah, most excellent – the TS was throwing me. MAC is telling me it’s a Mpeg-2 TS file hence my query. Tx for the help Pete,
More details. From the Help menu at the top of our website. Select FAQ’s. Then enter the term “download” in the search box. There is a post titled: “How to download and import STUDY.ts files into Thinkorswim”
thanks, but i am not sure which indicator to buy for day trading
Then I recommend you not purchase any of them. If you view the demo video and don’t immediately see the value or how you will use it then you should not spend money on it.
thank you for making our lives as traders easier. my request revolves around implementing ttm trend on the market watchlist with colors added like you did for the ttm squeeze. blue if trendup, red if trenddown. thank you in advance
This has already been requested and completed. Just search the Q&A forum for the term: “Trend” and you will find this post: https://www.hahn-tech.com/ans/could-a-custom-color-code-column-be-made-for-the-ttm-trend/
Pete, the videos are very helpful, thank you very much
1st, Pete, I can’t tell you how delighted I am that I found you. I have watched multiple videos & embedded your Ichimoku & TTM scans, watchlist, & strategy into my ToS platform. 2nd, do you have a scan similar to the Ichimoku that, in the “Scan” tab, extracts TTM Up & Down stocks? 3rd, I want to compensate you for your time & effort, but all I see is a contribution for a video. Is there a way to send check or credit card? 4th, as for amount, I don’t want to under-compensate you, don’t mind a over-paying; if I had joined a “Hahn Learning Group” I might have paid $200-$500. What do you think is fair?
Hi Chip. Thanks so much for taking the time to express your thoughts. I am so happy you have found my videos helpful to your trading.
I am not familiar with “TTM Up & Down stocks”. Perhaps you can provide more details and I can look into it. Please consider posting it as a new question in our Q&A forum so we can bless the rest of our viewers with the solution.
I am very touched at your desire to compensate me for my time. For now, the only way to send me money is through the voluntary contribution button on the side bar of the website. Think of it as a tip jar. Any contribution amount is welcome and greatly appreciated.
Another way to contribute to my work is to purchase one of my premium indicators.
Thanks again for taking the time to leave a comment. Looking forward to hearing from you again in our Q&A forum. Take care!
Pete , what are your premium indicators, i would like to buy them
