Learn about the Core Features that make Investor/RT so powerful.
Topics presented include the Volume Breakdown Indicator, the Profile Indicator,
Session Statistics, Real-Time Language and much more.
View Buy Volume, Sell Volume, Total Volume or Time spent at Price Levels for any time period. Split the Day Session from the Overnight Session to view each profile separately. Use the Profile Drawing tool to draw a profile over any targeted custom period. View Composite profiles to track fine-tuned trends going back 5 or 10 years. Use Point of Control or Value area Highs and Lows as variables in RTL Studies. Extend Naked POC's, VAH or VAL's to the present trading day to uncover areas that have not been filled. Use any number of custom coloring options such as Heat Map, Holograms, Lines or Blocks.
Bid Volume vs. Ask Volume (Volume Delta) both historically and in real time. Filter trades by trade size to watch for larger traders in the market. Accumulate the Volume Delta in Candlestick format to look for Volume Divergences. Use Technical Indicators on the results of the Volume Breakdown Indicator like Moving Averages or Session Statistics. Track other statistics like Average Buy or Sell Size, Bid or Ask Size or Tick Frequency. Write custom studies with RTL Language using the Volume Break down Indicator.
TPO Charts were originally devised by J. Peter Steidlmayer for use as a way to Profile the intraday market activity. They were later made available to the public in 1985. Developed with the goal of assigning a value to the market for certain time periods using Normal Gaussian distribution. Split the Day Session from the Overnight Session to view each profile separately or Split any Profile at any letter for deeper analysis. Automatically add reference lines that result from RTL Studies to mark other areas of interest directly on TPO Charts. Extend Naked POC's, VAH or VAL's to the present trading day to uncover areas that have not been filled.
Incredibly powerful Indicator that compares almost any market statistic to how that statistic performed in the past (right down to the minute). Compare today's Trading Volume or Range during the exact minute to the average Volume or Range during the same minute that occurred on previous days. Add reference lines to each day on your chart for the Overnight Highs and Lows, Initial Balance Highs and Lows, Initial Balance Range or any other value of interest. Use Session Statistics in Custom RTL Studies to analyze the past performance of another Indicator. Compare statistics from today's market with Last Weeks, Last Months or Last Years Market.
The simple scripting language used to write Custom Indicators, Signals and Scans within Investor/RT. Requires no programming experience (although experience certainly helps). RTL is a tokenized language. Market data and indicator values are referenced using simple RTL tokens like OPEN, HIGH, CLOSE or MA (Moving Average), etc. All Indicators in Investor/RT have tokens for accessing their values (e.g. RAWK, FASTD, CCI, MA). RTL formulas can perform arithmetic operations (+, -, *, /) and relational comparisons (<, >, >=, <=). A complete library of built-in functions includes Minimum, Maximum, Average, Sum, etc.
Time-Based Periodicities like Second Bars, Minute Bars, Daily, Monthly & Weekly. Tick-Based Periodicities only form a new bar after the set amount of trades (ticks) have occurred. Volume Bars only form a new bar after the set amount of Volume has occurred. Range Bars only form a new bar after the set High/Low Range has been broken. Change Bars only form a new bar after a set Open/Close Range has been broken. Point & Figure & Renko periodicities are also available.
