Parameter Description

Community Indicators:

barssource Bars inc High & Low series
dssource DataSeries
LeftBarsnumber of bars left of the swing high or low bar for true
RightBarsnumber of bars right of the swing high or low bar for true
LeftReversalAmountprice or percent value left of the swing high or low bar for true
RightReversalAmountprice or percent value right of the swing high or low bar for true
EqualPriceThresholda value below which the source prices will be deemed equal
PercentModetrue for reversal amounts in percent, false for price
SetLeftSwingsto select left bar in cases of equal price swing bars
SetOuterSwingsto select bar outside of consequtive swings in cases of equal price bars
SetSteppedSeriesplot as stepped instead of incremental series

Extra parameter descriptions for Community Components:

barfrom which to search for required swing occurrence
farbackhow many past bars to search
occurwhich of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on, most recent swings to return
swHighBarassign an existing int variable with the bar number of 'occur'. The C# keyword ‘out’ must be included in the parameter list.
swLowBarassign an existing int variable with the bar number of 'occur'. The C# keyword ‘out’ must be included in the parameter list.

Description

A stable of indicators and methods for defining swings by Jon Macmichael.

The indicators do not have a value method. Instead use the Community.Components IsSwingLo() & IsSwingHi() methods.

Swings can be defined assymetrically by price or percent as well as bars, and plotted in a stepped or incremental style. There are further controls for cases of multi bar highs & lows. The associated methods provide further controls for the the number of bars to look back for a swing, and which occurrence.

When both bar quota and price are used the early(left) history will require a match from both parameters, whereas the recent(right) history will be matched when either parameter is fulfilled.

To drop price-percent filtering set their parameter(s) to zero, or use an overload. Alternatively, to drop the bars quota set the left side parameter to zero, but on the right side set its parameter to a minimum of one.

For cases of multi-bar swings the default bar returned is the right side. This can be overridden with the SetLeftSwings parameter. Alternatively the parameter SetOutSideSwings will force the outside bar of multi-bar swings to be returned (in cases of consecutively higher(lower) swings.

The SetSteppedSeries parameter will force only the last swings values to be plotted box style. The default plot increments the series values between swings.

These series display 'peaked' values from the (right side) swing bar until the bar since that is true to the RightBars or RightReversalAmount value. To overcome this, the returned series could be used inconjunction with associated methods IsSwingHi() and IsSwingLo(). Alternative a series could be built completely using these methods.

The SwingHiLo series has an unavoidable logic bug in cases of a bar matching both swing high and low parameters.

Extra Description for Community.Components

If the bool methods IsSwingHi() and IsSwingLo() do not return a match(false), then -1 is returned in their ‘out’ prameters.

The minimum value for ‘farback’ should be RightBars + 1.
