Topic: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

dear popov and forum members

I have attached 2 screenshots

1 is from mt4 chart with a ea attached using pivots. all values are  00000000 instead of the pivot levels

2 is from fsb trader market chart    where usually the pivot numbers appear is only dots

it doesnt execute trades

m1 and m5  time frames are effected 
in the fsb backtest it works. in mt4  strategie tester not

I have a paid FSB with newest update and restarted the whole machine ect:)

any suggestions and ideas to solve this are highly appreaciated

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

Confirm please what kind of indicator are you using? Looks like a custom one?

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

its stock fsb pivot from the repository

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

Repository is not stock, repo is for custom indis.

On one screen I see PP Multi, the other is just PP, ok, I'll go to the repo to see whether there is Multi indi. Maybe mine?

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

https://forexsb.com/repository/reposito … oint-multi

This one is Ahmed's. Is this the one in use?

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

Footon I used the regular pp indicator  that was on the repo.  this one  can be exported as well
Is that yours?



on the screenshot I tried also the  pp multi from Ahmed  to see if the levels show in the chart and in trader.

but it seems that both indis dont get the pivot data in live   auto trader chart / and mt4 chart 
hopefully just on my machine would you check on your pc? thx
allthough in the backtest  fsb journal its all there

and now in trading mode trades dont get opened becasue it doesnt know the levels

There is no regular on the repo, only custom indicators get uploaded there if the author wishes to do so. Regular PP is already available, hard-coded in FSB. You open the indi slot, choose PP and so it goes out of the box.

It is working for me. Pic attached.

But tell me your settings, better yet - post a screenshot of your PP settings.

I have an idea, I'll confirm this in a minute.

Tell me what timeframe are you using also.

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

It has started to run smooth again just now after 0:00
I will see how it goes today


and the levels are visible in mt4 and in trader I hope it stays
if they disapear I write again

maybe its connected with The Low Count of chart bars  dialog that keeps pupping  up asking me to set more than 1400 bars in trade settings. but I have set 5000 there.

I use mostly H1 all the way down to m1 on futures

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

its regular settings default
thanks for checking Footon

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

Make sure you have enough bars loaded on chart as well.

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

hei footon

I have set max bars in mt4 options to 2147483647 bars.
plus when I press the home button I see plenty of bars raching back months

but when I put a expert into mt4 that containing  any pivot indicator it only shows the levels in m15 and up to d1 but not in m5 and m1

so it dosent execute trades because it doesent know the levels

anybody what is the solution to make this work in mt4?

In the Pivot  Pic that you attached I noticed that it is H1
Could you check if it works for you  on m1 and m5 al well pls

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

I checked all timeframes on my end: I get zeroes for M1 and M5, other ones are all good (setting is one day level).

I'll try one bar levels now.

One bar levels work for all timeframes. Hmm, seems to be a data problem, I'll revert to one day levels once more.

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

M1 and M5 are not working, the main description of the bug is incorrect usage of bars needed. Screenshot below.

Mqh file has the bug and as it is standard indi, it needs to be fixed by the developer so the code can be updated in all FSBs. I'll let him know and see whether I can see the fault for fast-tracking the fix.

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

oh great then it was not a bad question smile

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

As a temporary workaround you can make it work by adjusting minimum bar number manually for now. Open the expert, find line 76 and change the zero to 2000.

int Min_Data_Bars=2000;

Then it will have enough bars to calculate daily levels even on lower timeframes.

Re: pivot indicator doesnt show levels in chart of mt4 and in trader why

thanks footon
