Objects


The following new objects have been added to the platform:


Oblique rectangle and oblique ellipse

Fibonacci Ellipse

Fibonacci Spiral

 

Gann Square

Gann Grid

Improved text tool


  • Fibonacci Ellipse - The height/length ratio of a Fibonacci Ellipse is always the golden ratio.
  • Fibonacci Spiral - Fibonacci Spirals have 6 rotations. Each rotation size is determined by multiplying the previous size by the golden ratio.
  • Gann Square - the Gann Square is drawn by setting 2 opposite diagonal points of the square. Internal lines may show support and resistance.
  • Gann Grid - A Gann Grid is made up of parallel lines forming a grid based on an initial trend line drawn.
  • Improved Text Object - possibility to link text to a point, display price and date, view on mouse hover only, angle texts.
  • Schiff pitchfork - The Schiff pitchfork is similar to an Andrews pitchfork. Its origin is located at 1/2 the vertical distance and 1/2 the horizontal distance between the high and low points (first two points set). A Schiff pitchfork is created by first drawing a trend line between two extreme points. A third point is then set either above or below the second point. The lines of the pitchfork can be used to show a trend.

Drawing object improvements :

  • Additional optional levels added to fibonacci arcs and fans
  • Objects other than lines can also be transferred to inferior time units from the "Options" / "Platform options" menu
  • Line transfer points can now be displayed on other time units
  • Additional objects support color zones (filled in colors)


Indicators


New indicators

  • VWAP and VWAP bands - VWAP is the volume weighted average price. VWAP bands are calculated by applying a standard deviation (similar to Bollinger bands).


  • Correlation coefficient indicator - measures the correlation in price between 2 instruments. A correlation close to 1 shows a very strong correlation.


  • Awesome oscillator - a momentum oscillator that the difference between a long simple moving average of the median price and a short simple moving average of the median price.

  • KDJ - a stochastic indicator with an additional line "J" which shows divergence.


  • Schaff trend - Schaff trend cycle is an oscillator combinies Slow Stochastics and the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD).


Indicator improvements

  • Any indicator can now be added from the indicator properties chart window
  • Indicators can now be dragged and dropped between different charts
  • Price and indicator labels now have customizable sizes


  • Customizable time periods and time zones for pivot points



Lists

  • Improved highlighting in lists and you can now use 10 different highlight colors at once
  • Selected instruments are highlighted across all lists including orders, portfolios, screeners, top movers, etc
  • Arrow buttons added in list headers to easily move up and down.
  • Lists and screeners will now remain in front after clicking on them to open charts.

  • Human voice available to announce order executions and alerts triggered (ex "Buy at market executed" ; "Alert triggered - sell")


  • New alerts window
  • Free e-mail alerts in addition to the previous SMS alerts
  • More alert conditions (ex: crosses over and crosses under)




Saving system


Saving your work is now simpler: in v10.3 all of your data is saved whenever you save a template.

In the "File" menu, select :

  • "Load template" to load a workspace
  • "Save" to save your current template
  • "Save as..." to save a new template


You can now make "favorite templates" which will appear above all of the others.





Backtesting and detailed report


Tick by tick backtesting mode

  • ProBacktest now includes a tick by tick simulation mode to generate results as close as possible to real-time execution during the simulated period.
  • Backtesting with tick by tick data lets the system determine the sequence of execution if several orders are triggered by your trading system in a single candlestick.


  • For example, if the system generates both a stop and a limit order which can potentially be touched in the same candle (as shown in the image), the backtest will use tick by tick data to determine which order should be executed.


  • This new system allows more accurate backtesting than ever before.

Improved detailed report

  • Improved detailed report page including performance chart. You can view weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly performance.




Easier strategy creation and modification


Assisted creation mode has been improved to give you more options and flexibility without programming.

The programming language now lets you draw objects and candles on charts with programming in your custom ProBuilder indicators.

  • BackgroundColor: lets you color the background of the chart or specific bars (such as odd/even days). The colored zone starts halfway between the previous bar and the next bar.
    Example: BACKGROUNDCOLOR(0,127,255,25)
    It is possible to use a variable for the colors if you want the background color to change based on your conditions.
    Example: BACKGROUNDCOLOR(0,color,255,25)

    Example: DRAWCANDLE(open,high,low,close) COLOURED(0,255,0)


  • DrawArrow: Draws an arrow pointing right. You need to define a point for the arrow (x and y axis). You can also choose a color.
    Example: DRAWARROW(x1,y1) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)
    This is useful to add visual buy signals.
  • DrawArrowUp: Draws an arrow pointing up. You need to define a point for the arrow (x and y axis). You can also choose a color.
    Example: DRAWARROWUP(x1,y1) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)
    This is useful to add visual buy signals.
  • DrawArrowDown: Draws an arrow pointing down. You need to define a point for the arrow (x and y axis). You can also choose a color.
    Example: DRAWARROWDOWN(x1,y1) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)
    This is useful to add visual sell signals.


  • DrawRectangle: Draws a rectangle on the chart.
    Example: DRAWRECTANGLE(x1,y1,x2,y2) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)
  • DrawEllipse: Draws an ellipse on the chart.
    Example: DRAWELLIPSE(x1,y1,x2,y2) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)


  • DrawLine: Draws a line on the chart.
    Example: DRAWLINE(x1,y1,x2,y2) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)

    Example: DRAWSEGMENT(barindex, close, barindex[5], close[5])


  • DrawText: Adds a text field to the chart with the text of your choice at the specified location.
    Example: DRAWTEXT("your text",x1,y1) COLOURED(R,V,B,a)


  • DrawOnLastBarOnly: Parameter that lets you draw drawn objects on the last bar only. This parameter should always be used with "CalculateOnLastBars" to optimize calculations.
    Example: DEFPARAM DRAWONLASTBARONLY = true
  • CalculateOnLastBars: Parameter that lets you increase the speed at which indicators are calculated by defining the number of bars to display the results, starting with the most recent bar.
    Example: DEFPARAM CALCULATEONLASTBARS = 200
