Minor heiken ashi Limitation of ChartDirector for Python
This was sent over the last few days regarding this Minor heiken ashi indicator:
(thanks to the person who sent this)
Here is the limitation
Thank you for your note. I am already a ChartDirector user. As a veteran Python programmer, I have noted a few irritating features in ChartDirector including the lack of a useful tool for Heiken Ashi candles. As a result, I have built my own SVG (scalable vector graphics) charting program for my personal use. I have sent my rather pedestrian Heiken Ashi code to ChartDirector for possible inclusion in the future.
Additionally, ChartDirector’s geometry allows for slightly different spaces between candles but I have hopefully improved on that – see my screen grabs – particularly the bottom one (zoomed in).
None of this is very important to your algorithmic trading, but I thought I would mention my thoughts. I am a rather visual and intuitive pattern trader and good graphics are important to me.
