Spoke too soon I guess. Opened SQQQ and SMH puts at open but will use EOD.

Since I'm a virgin with options as well...in hindsight, maybe my stop should have been at 50% and letting the profits run but with stops in place.

Who knows if this retracement will be like the one in late 2018 which was lit by another Trump tweet?

There she goes...



Now comes...when to get off the wagon

question:
how do i script this line:
- average volume(30) * 50% = x (i think this is: set {V, average volume(30) * .50)
- draw V on volume plot

i don't know how to do the 2nd line. Thank you

sandjco, this is the best I could do:

Fetcher[
set {V, average volume(30) * .50}
and draw V on plot Average Volume(30)
]

Fetcher[
symlist(aaba)
set{vol.5, Average Volume(30) * .50}
set{vol30, Average Volume(30)}
and draw vol.5 on plot vol30

add column vol30
add column vol.5
]

Thank you four! Interesting presentation...
What I was trying to do was to:
- draw a horizontal line on the volume pane that represented the "outliers" (spikes) over say 1 year and
- draw another horizontal line on the volume pane that represented the other spectrum wherein the volume was really low vs what it usually trades at over say 1 year

Will most likely close short positions and reverse course to go long SOXL and TECL. My gut said to close these yesterday and reverse course. PIcked up MRVL and GOOG yesterday but will use today's EOD

As always, thank you four! Thank you again xarlor for taking the first shot.

Fetcher[symlist(aaba)
set{vol.5, Average Volume(30) * .50}
set{vol30, Average Volume(30)}
set{vv, volume}
and draw vv on plot vol.5
draw vol30 on plot average volume(30)

/*trying to draw two other horizontal line on vv plot that is a multiple of vol.5*/
set{vol1.5, vol.5 * 3}
draw vol1.5 on plot vv

set{vol2.5, vol.5 * 5}
draw vol2.5 on plot vv
]



How do I make the vol 1.5 and vol 2.5 be horizontal lines plotted on vv plot so I will now have 3 horizontal lines on the vv plot?

Thank you in advance

Why not use the custom Bollinger Bands?

something like

Fetcher[
set{volUBB, cubb(volume,30,2.0)}
set{volLBB, clbb(volume,30,2.0)}
set{vol, volume}

draw volUBB on plot vol
draw volLBB on plot vol
]
