Application Integration Trading Technologies

ttlogo

This document will go over how to integrate JSPriceMap Analytics with Trading Technologies MDTrader, XStudy Charts and ADL.

The JSDesktop Data Utility function creates an Excel (JSSheet.xls) in its Default Integration Script which is used to dynamically link into MDTrader, XStudy and ADL.

tt-integration-1

The JSSheet.xls file is saved in the C:/Users/………../Documents/JSServices/ directory.

11-2-2016-3-19-05-pm

 

STEP1 – OPEN the JSSheet that was created using the Default Integration Script 2 first before opening TT. The Excel sheet must remain open and stay open until after TT is closed to ensure the integrity of the dynamic linking. If you close the JSSheet prior to closing TT you may lose ALL you saved links.

JSSheet TT VIEW 11 Example

MDTrader

STEPS to ADD JSServices PriceMap analytics to MDTrader.

  1. Right click to open properties window and check ADD INDICATOR COLUMN. Set as default.
  2. Right click on the JSSheet Symbol and PriceMap level and select copy
  3. Right click on the MDTrader middle price column and paste. Do the same for both the left and right indicator columns. You don’t need to scroll to paste at the exact price for the links to work but you do need to link all 3 columns for each PriceMap level you want linked to the MDTrader window. You can scroll up and down the ladder after you have created the links to confirm that they are working.
  4. Save your settings

XStudy Chart

STEPS to ADD JSServices PriceMap analytics to an XStudy chart.

  1. Right click on the JSSymbol PriceMap level column highlighting up to 10 price levels at a time and COPY.
  2. Right click on the Chart and click PASTE. The PriceMap level should show up on the chart in the correct color code.
    1. If the PriceMap levels come up in BLACK then you must remove the black border of the excel cells. Be sure there are no borders
    2. If PriceMap levels do not show up be sure you have cut and paste the correct JSSymbol and price to the same XStudy chart symbol.
    3. To customize the thickness of the PriceMap level highlight level on the chart and right click to edit font size.
  3. Save your settings

Sierra Charts Webvideo Tutorial Click here

 

There are 2 STEPS to ADD JSServices PriceMap analytics to a Sierra Charts. Step 1 is the JSData integration which creates the js_data.xml file that Sierra Charts needs to “read” the analytics and the Step 2 is the Set-Up procedures to load the PriceMap script into Sierra Charts with the proper display settings.

Step 1 : JSData Integration

A Sierra Chart Integration Script must be created in the JSDesktop Preference section.  The script must have a -outputFilename= “js_data.xml“. Sierra Chart uses the js_data.xml file to display the data. Below is a sample script which should be entered in the INTEGRATION SCRIPT tab 4 or 5.

Example

jsget -outputView=11 -outputType=xml -outputFilename=”js_data” -outputDirectory=” C:\SierraChart\Data” -dateRange=3 -overwrite –indent

After the script is entered click on the gear with the green check to confirm that everything has been entered correctly. If not an ERROR message will alert you to the issue. If the script has been entered correctly then a message of “No Issues found” will be shown. To test that the script is working, click on the small gears to run the script. The large gear to the left will reset the script to the default settings.

 

STEP 2 : Sierra Charts Set-Up

Note: Prior to the Set-Up process you must send mailto:info@jsservices.com your Sierra Charts User ID. Please let us know if you are on Transact. The JSServices Sierra Chart integration does not need to be downloaded separately it is all done with permissions using your User ID within Sierra Charts. Be sure to have the latest version of Sierra Charts loaded.

Set- Up procedures

  1. Open ANALYSIS –> STUDIES editor or type F6
  2. Select ADD CUSTOM STUDY to open the Add Study Window
  3. Locate STRATEGY ALERTS and select PRICE MAP OVERLAY
  4. Select PRICE MAP OVERLAY
  5. Click ADD

sierra-integration-1

6. Click SETTINGS to open the STUDY SETTINGS PRICE MAP OVERLAY window

7. Edit the JS Symbol. The symbol should match the symbol on the JSDesktop MarketColor Grid.

8. Click OK

sierra-integration-2

  • Note: You can right click on the chart tab and select DUPLICATE CHART. This will create a chart with the identical settings. To create additional market hit F5 to open the CHART SETTINGS menu and edit the SYMBOL of your choice. Save and then HIT F6 to open the STUDIES window and edit the JS SYMBOL SETTINGS. After you have created all the charts you want by repeating this process save them in a CHARTBOOK.

DAILY REFRESH

When you open the CHARTBOOK each day the PriceMap levels may not be visable until you change a chart parameter like the chart TIME from 3min to 5min for example. An alternative is to OPEN the CHARTBOOK and then CLOSE the CHARTBOOK. Then when you OPEN it again all the levels should be displayed.

CUSTOMIZATION

The PriceMap levels and Market Metrics can be customized by right clicking the chart.

  • Show Minor
  • Show VAR
  • Show AD
  • Show MSD
PriceMap BASIC VIEW

If no features are selected only the Major Price Map Levels (MPML) are displayed. This provides a nice broad overview of the key Market Structure PriceMap levels.

MARKET METRICS

The Market Metrics identify the area of influence around a PriceMap level. Each metric has its own variance and meaning. These metrics are dynamically updated each day in accordance to the volatility expectation of the trade period.

VARIANCE (VAR)

The VAR metric represents the optimal area to entry or exit the market. It also identifies the potential “slippage” area around a Major PricMap level.

sierra-integration-5

ALERT DISTANCE (AD)

The AD identifies the value area or sweet spot around a PriceMap level. This is the distance that defines the zone that most profitable trades will occur within. In addition it is a good metric to identify when market price is “through” a level.

sierra-integration-6

MAXIMUM STOP DISTANCE (MSD)

The MSD is the maximum distance for any influence a PriceMap level with have and confirmation that the level has been violated.

sierra-integration-7

PriceMap Market Metric FULL VIEW

In the FULL VIEW the Minor PriceMap levels will only have the AD displayed. There are no VAR or MSD metrics for the Minor PriceMap levels.

sierra-integration-8

Additional Features

The default setting displays the current trading session PriceMap data. Up to 3 days’ worth of data can be requested by adding the following parameter to the Integration script : -dateRange=3. Below is an example that will grab 3 days’ worth of JSData. 3 is the maximum number of days that can be displayed. This may slow the daily retrieval down slightly.

JSNinjaTrader Integration

The JSDesktop includes a JSData utility component whose default settings create a JSData.XML file which is needed to run the NinjaTrader JSServices PriceMap Chart Overlays application. The JSData.xml file is located in your C:\Users\”???”\Documents\JSServices\directory. Your computer User name will replace the “???” in the directory location. For example my JSServices directory is in: C:\Users\John\Documents\JSServices\.

The image below shows the JSData.xml file in the default directory.

ninja-integration-1

JS Services current NinjaTrader integration uses a file named JSData.xml for its PriceMap chart overlay indicator.

ninja-integration-2

STEP 1 – Download and Save JS NinjaScript (JSPriceMap.zip)

a. Click on the preferred NT7 or NT8 .zip file link and download the JSPriceMap.zip file which contains the Ninja Script:

JSPriceMapNT7.zip

JSPriceMapNT8.zip

b. Save the downloaded JSPriceMap.zip file in your …\Documents\NinjaTrader7\bin\Custom directory

ninja-integration-3

STEP 2 – Import JS NinjaScript

On the NinjaTrader Control Center Go to FILE –> UTILITIES –> ImportNinjaScript

If you are already have an older version of the JS indicator select Remove NinjaScript Assembly 1st and remove the older version then import the new version.

ninja-integration-4

STEP 3 – Add JS Services Price Map Indicator

Open an intra-day chart and select the NinjaTrader INDICATORS icon to open the Indicator Edit box.

ninja-integration-5

  • Find the JS Services Price Map in the Indicator list and select it
  • Click “NEW” to add it to your active indicators
  • Edit the XML Path with the directory address the JSData.xml file is located including the file name and extension
  • Click APPLY

ninja-integration-6

The PriceMap levels should be displayed on the chart with the correct CREATION DATE.

ninja-integration-7

Trouble Shooting

PriceMap levels do not show up

  • Be sure you are connected to the internet and data source
  • Be sure to check the spelling of the XML PATH
  • Be sure the JSData.xml file is in the directory you entered in the XML PATH and it has the correct date. If it not:
    • Re-fresh the JSDesktop
    • Be sure the Refresh box is checked in the default Integration Script 1. To check go to VIEW –> PREFERENCES –>

 

KNOWN ISSUES

JAPANESE YEN

JSSmbol = JY     NinjaTrader Symbol = 6J

The Multiplier must be edited for the PriceMap level to display properly. To do so change the MULTIPIER from 1 to 10.

Additional Features

The default setting displays the current trading session PriceMap data. Up to 3 days’ worth of data can be requested by adding the following parameter to the Integration script : -dateRange=3. Below is an example that will grab 3 days’ worth of JSData. 3 is the maximum number of days that can be displayed. This may slow the daily retrieval down slightly.

Additional Features

JS Services PriceMap Daily Integration Script

In addition to the intraday JS Services Price Map application there is also a Daily (JS Services Price Map Daily) which is designed to work with HISTORICAL CHARTS.

ninja-integration-11

The default setting only displays the PriceMap Directional level (R, UP, DP) which forecast a change in the market state. This provides a nice MACRO view. The difference with the intra-day application is that the levels extend across the chart. When the Minor level is selected the rest of the Major PriceMap levels will be displayed. It is recommended to create separate DAILY Charts when using this application and separate ones for the Daily.

PriceMap Qualifiers CriticalRange

CriticalRange

The PriceMap defines the structure of the market state by identifying the key price band or CriticalRange for the trade period. The Upside Pivot [UP] and Downside Pivot [DP] directional levels encapsulate the CriticalRange which will behave like key resistance and support levels,  defining the behavioral area of indecision or neutral zone for the trade period. 

 cr-basiccr-post-2

The CriticalRange is broken up into 6 quadrants, defined by a directional level mid point and minor levels on either side of the UP and DP. This structure and the inherent meaning of each level are key to interpreting market “tells” in real-time.

DIRECTIONAL

The DIR (Directional) is the mid-point of the Critical Range but is not necessarily symmetrical. The DIR acts as a classic pivot point for the trading session that the market will rotate around to find its immediate bias within the CriticalRange.

cr-post-2 cr-post-8

A held trade above the DIR gives the market a positive lean and below negative, targeting the UP and DP CriticalRange extremes. Trading within the CriticalRange represents a neutral posture for the market. A breakout of the CriticalRange signals a directional bias and possible trend move for the session.

 CR + and CR –

The CR+ and CR – define the interior quadrants of the CriticalRange. These minor levels will come into play as the market rotates around the DIR, either tightening the coil of a digestive trade or preparing for a transitional BREAKOUT.

  • Classic rotational trading within the CR+ and CR- range is typical for NON TREND type consolidation prior to a move. A market that has tested both the CR+ and CR- and has maintained the integrity of each, is a “tell” that a sideways trade will persist producing a NON EVENT session.

cr-post-4 cr-post-5

  • A breach of the CR+ or CR- after a rotational trade around the DIR will give the market a bias targeting the CriticalRange parameters (UP/DP). If the signal is valid and “ready to go”, price action will maintain structure at the DIR after a CR+ or CR- breach. If it does not, it is a sign of digestion or potential reversal.

CRX + and CRX –

The CRX +/- are the Critical Range Breakout extremes. These are the price points that must be taken out to confirm a structural break or “Breakout” and can result in good exhaustive extremes.

  • Exhaustive Extreme – The CRX+ and CRX – identify the CriticalRange thresholds and represent an exhaustive extreme for any false CriticalRange BREAKOUT. If the integrity of the CRX + or CRX – remain intact any BREAKOUT signal must remain suspect. These levels can be used as stop levels for any FADE or REVERSAL strategy at the UP or DP as they are the “squeeze” high or low for any momentum exhaustion.

cr-post-6 cr-post-7

  • Structure Break – The CRX+ and CRX – identify the confirmation points that must be violated to confirm a BREAKOUT. Once the CRX + or CRX – has been violated the market should maintain that bias above or below the respective CR + or CR-. The best BREAKOUT scenarios have the market hold structure above the UP or below the DP and just “go” with only one shot, if any, after a CRX +/- violation. Trading back inside the CriticalRange to the CR + or CR – will take some of the energy away from the BREAKOUT signal and is a “tell” for more of a “stop and go” trend condition.

PRACTICAL APPLICATION

* Use the price action within the CriticalRange to provide insight to the markets next move.

* Use the CR +/- and the CRX +/- to confirm or deny a trend move.es-nt2-11-5-2015-5-08-34-pm

PriceMap Qualifiers R LEVEL Positions

The PriceMap is the framework of the market STATE and the R LEVEL defines the behavioral sentiment bias for the trade period. Where the R level is on the PriceMap will skew the condition of the market state. The R LEVEL is a floater number which can be in one of 9 PriceMap positions each with its own identity that is outlined below.

9-9-2016-6-50-59-pm

R LEVEL Positions

R =DIR – The R LEVEL equal to the DIR (Directional) is in a classic pivot point position, as sentiment is balance and “on the fence”. The market is indecisive or is preparing to make a move. Any Market State with the R=DIR should respect the pivotal nature of sentiment. Typically when the R LEVEL is in this position it will either just breakout and “go” producing a linear move or a difficult rotational trade will consume the market for the trade period.

msb_345 msb_105 msb_265

R =UP – The R LEVEL at the top of the CriticalRange defines a “hard” resistance point at the UP (UpsidePivot). Energy is centered at this price point and a violation should be expected to produce sharp interest. A downside failure below the DP (DownsidePivot) however should be expected to NOT have the same energy and any downside breakout to be more measured.

  msb_346 msb_106 msb_266

R >UP – The R LEVL above the UP but less than the UT1 creates a RESISTANCE BAND with the UP. Trading tactics should focus on the entire zone for signal acceptance. Typically this would be on the sell side as this is a resistance band but will transition into a support band if the market violates the R LEVEL and starts to transition higher.

R =UT1 – The R LEVEL = to the UT1 (Upside Target #1) creates an even wider resistance band with the UP. Signal acceptance anywhere in the price band is acceptable however it is best to commit to opportunities closer to the UP or UT1. As the R LEVEL moves farther above the DIR the energy in the market place is skewed higher. Any lower price movement should be expected to be more measured and any positive turn from lower levels should be expected to target the R LEVEL

msb_348 msb_108 msb_268

Same Images for R>UP and R=UT1

R >UT1 – The R LEVEL above the UT1 identifies the high point for any price squeeze against the underlying trend if it is going to resume in the session. A market in this position has a defined underlying negative tone and any sell signal, especially at higher levels, below this price points are actionable. Sells below the DP are a lower value opportunity and the threat of a corrective squeeze up to the R LEVEL is real. Typically the market will attempt some type of corrective move when the R LEVEL is in this position.

  msb_349 msb_109 msb_269

R =DP – The R LEVEL at the bottom of the CriticalRange defines a “hard” support level at the DP (DownsidePivot). Energy is centered at this price level and a failure should be expected to produce aggressive offers. An upside breakout above the UP (UpsidePivot) however should be expected to NOT have the same energy and any upside breakout to be more measured.

msb_344 msb_104 msb_264

R < DP – The R LEVEL below the DP but greater than the DT1 creates a SUPPORT BAND with the DP. Trading tactics should focus on the entire zone for signal acceptance. Typically this would be on the buy side as this is a support band but will transition into a resistance band if the market violates the R LEVEL and starts to transition lower.

R =DT1 – The R LEVEL = to the DT1 (Downside Target #1) creates an even wider support band with the DP. Signal acceptance anywhere in the price band is acceptable however it is best to commit to opportunities closer to the DP or DT1. As the R LEVEL moves farther below the DIR the energy in the market place is skewed lower. Any higher price movement should be expected to be move measure and any negative turn from higher levels should be expected to target the R LEVEL.

  msb_342 msb_102 msb_262

Same Images for R<DP and R=DT1

R < DT1 – The R LEVEL below the DT1 identifies the low point for any price squeeze against the underlying trend if it is going to resume in the session. A market in this position has a defined underlying positive tone and any buy signal, especially at lower levels, above this price points are actionable. Buys above the UP are a lower value opportunity and the threat of a corrective squeeze down to the R LEVEL is real. Typically the market will attempt some type of corrective move when the R LEVEL is in this position.

msb_341 msb_101 msb_261

PRACTICAL APPLICATION

* The R Level position itself can be a condition on its own to align trading tactics. For example any time, in any market state that the R=DIR it is a sign that the market is in a “pivotal” position, as sentiment is balanced. Trading tactics that perform well in pivotal market states can search out all markets that have an R=DIR.

* The R Level significantly above R>UT1 and R=UT1 or significantly below R is a “tell” that a corrective trade may develop targeting the R LEVEL. Identifying a break in PriceMap STRUCTURE is typically the 1st signal that a corrective move is in play.

* Always note the differential between the last traded price an the R Level as this is the price point that defines the rik for any trade.

PriceMap QUICK START

PRACTICAL APPLICATION

The PriceMap provides traders with the ability to anticipate opportunity at key structure points and create risk defined strategies with improved trade vision of expected price movement. The method is scalable as a unified approach across all markets and asset classes.

 

pricemapleveldefinitionsfull_v13

SIGNAL ACCEPTANCE – Focus trading and signal acceptance at PriceMap level structure points. Avoid trading “in the middle”.

SIZE MANAGEMENT – Value trade opportunities and position sizing based on the PriceMap qualifier weighting. As a rule of thumb the R LEVEL should carry the greatest value or position size followed by the CRITICAL RANGE extremes (UP and DP). The DIR “Directional” (+++ +++) and *** 3 star PriceMap level target next followed by the ** 2 and * 1 star PriceMap levels. The +c and -c are major “target” levels but should be integrated as a directional pivot for insight to market momentum in the next session.

TRADE OPPORTUNITIES – Use the PriceMap as a “ladder” for trade management. Think in terms of price segment trade vision with opportunities defined as 1/2, full and X2 APMD (Average Price Map Distance) profit targets.

POSITION MANAGEMENT – Use the PriceMap as a “ladder” for position management. Markets make trend moves by holding positive or negative structure. Use price action within the PriceMap as a position management tool, adjusting stops as the market breaches a PriceMap level anticipating that it will go to the next level by holding above/below the breached level. If the breached level cannot sustained the violation it is a “tell” that the market may be set to REVERSE for a test of the opposing level on the PriceMap.

PriceMap Definitions

JSServices PriceMap Analytics use quantitative methods to objectively define the price STRUCTURE of the market STATE. The knowledge of the market STATE STRUCTURE and the awareness of current price action within it, provides clarity to the value of an opportunity and the risk and reward associated with it.

 

PriceMapLevelDefinitions_V13

OVERVIEW

Price levels in the PriceMap series followed by stars *** are minor structure and major target “support and resistance” levels. The star *** value weights are determined by their structural significance to the market state alignment. Alignment defined as the price point that will have an influence on the market maintaining structure or not. The more stars ***, the more value a level has and the greater significance to the structural integrity of the price framework of the market STATE. Prices followed by symbols (+++ +++ (DIR), UP, DP, R, +c and – c) are directional pivots or trend indicators. These levels are the actionable points of the PriceMap, as they define where potential transitional shifts in STATE will occur and are the preferred entry levels.

In a general sense trading within the CRITICAL RANGE (UPDP) represents a neutral posture for the market and trading outside a trend posture with the DIRECTIONAL (+++ +++ the classic pivot point within this range. The ***# levels are Upside/ Downside Target (UT/DT) projections the for a CRITICAL RANGE breakout.

The R Level qualifier represents the sentiment bias for the trade period. Trading above the R signals a positive buy break bias, while trading below signifies a negative sell rally bias. A price violation or failure at the R Level would reverse this bias.

+c and – c symbols represent Continuation Momentum numbers that define the technical event extremes.

JS PRICEMAP QUALIFIER KEY

R = REVERSAL LEVEL is the SENTIMENT BIAS level for the trade period, positive bias above, negative below.
