Doda-Donchian ver 2.0 Released


Doda-Donchian 2Based on the feedback and some pending features, I’m releasing Doda-Donchian version 2.0 today. Showing sample chart of EURUSD on time frame H4 with Doda-Donchian 2.

 

 

 

EURUSD H4 technical chart using doda-donchian 2

 

Changes in this version from ver 1.0



  • Instead of dotted red-line, I’ve used solid blue line. Red color has been used elsewhere.
  • Shows all the information on top-right corner of the screen instead of bottom-right. This will not interfere with your chart on the screen.
  • Another feature I’ve added in this version is support and resistance lines (dotted red and green lines on screen) with their value on top-right. These values are based on pivot points and Fibonacci levels. If the price crosses Resistance 1, there are strong chances, it will move till Resistance 2. Similarly, if the price fails to get support at Support 1, it’s next target will be Support 2.

Just right-click on the following link and choose Save File As or Save Target As…

  1. Downloaded your Ver 2 – looks good. I have applied it to Daily charts however the Support and Resistance lines are very close together and makes price action very crowded – the lines seperate to what I would consider normal using the 10min time frame – anyway to manipulate this

    • The support and resistance lines are based on Fibonacci levels and Pivot levels. As these levels changes daily, the lines become closer on daily chart. It works best on H4 chart. You can delete these lines from objects menu and can see their values from top-right screen.

      Hope it will help you

  2. to outline the basic understanding of what kind of blue,,
    whether there is a stand-alone indicator for the blue line, I really need it,,
    I am very grateful for her return if the indicator blue lines are included reminders / warnings,,

    and thank you in advance,,

    • This is a stand alone indicator. Just buy if the price closes above blue line and sell if it closes below blue line.

      Hope it will help you.

    • Thanks for positive feedback. Doda-Donchian can work with all currency pairs and also with stock market. I’ve tested with them. But it works best with pair with low volatility like EURUSD pair.

      Hope it will help you.

    • I agree Lazim. I’m coding its new version, where you’ll not get such error. Just want to share with you, that stop-loss mentioned here is nothing but the value of Doda-Donchian line.

      Hope it will help you.

    • There are many ways to setup stop loss. You can use above / below few pips away from Doda-Donchian line. It’s value is displayed on the top-right screen under “Stop Loss” heading. Another way is, use some other indicator like Parabloc SAR. Consider your risk-appetite also to place that. Remember, no indicator is perfect to give perfect value of stop-loss. You’ve to use your experience also. Try them in demo account first before you apply in real account.

      Hope it will help you.

      • Hi, seems to be a good indicator used together with the ichimuku cloud. Would it be correct that the stop could be trailed with the donchian line, as I’ve noticed that current value of the stop seems to be around that level. It doesn’t suggest an initial SL, but this is up to discretion.

        Reply
        • Yes, u r right. Doda-Donchian value can act as good stop loss. But sometimes, price can kiss this line and move in the opposite direction. You need to carefully set your stop-loss.

    • Just wait for the closing of the candle and ignore these flips. Closing is important to take decision. Also, use higher time frame like H4 to get more accurate signals and to avoid false signals.

  3. Just downloaded v2, and get only the red dotted line, not the solid blue line. Yes, I checked the version — I loaded v2, but nothing is changed from v1.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    • I agree with color of main line. I’ll change it to blue color in next version. The main difference is of support and resistance lines. Just remove the indicator from the chart and include the new version. It should work then.
      Hope it will help you.

  4. I love your Doda-Donchian indicator. I was wondering is there anyway to get emails or texts sent when a fresh signal happens on an open chart?

    Reply
    • Not now. But I’ve noted down your suggestion and will try to include it in next version release.
      Hope it will help you.

  5. Hi, I know that someone’s already asked this. I’m assuming by “screen alert” you mean the text on the chart? Are there any plans to add a pop up alert?

    Great work by the way, thank you 🙂

    Reply
  6. Hi,
    All that seems to be lacking is a pop up alert, if one is trading several currencies one needs a pop up. Also a clue as to a take profit point would be nice!
    Thanks, it is a great indicator!

    Reply
    • Sorry for late reply. Screen alert facility is already in this indicator. Booking profit decision can be taken on the basis of U-turn or trailing stop loss. Infact, it depends upon traders strategy. Use H4 time frame on EURUSD and make your own strategy.
      Hope it will help you.

  9. Hi!

    many thanks for these useful indicators! I have one question: What is your moneymanagement? You enter with BBands and DonChian but do you really use DonChian for your stop loss or a fixed TP and/or a trailing stops on the 4h chart? Thanks! 🙂

    Reply
    • Thanks for positive feedback. Money management depends upon your trading strategy. Depending upon any indicator can not be successful every time. I suggest to use trailing stop-loss as per need. These indicators will help you to take positions in the right direction. The exact values will be useful if you use EA based on them.
      Hope it will help you.

    • The indicator is provided in MeaTrader format. You need to contact some professional coder to convert it in your desired format.

  10. Hi, I see that only the ex4 file (compiled version) is available on this latest version of the Doda Donchian 2. Can I get the mq4 file (code) somewhere? It seems to be available for earlier versions in the MQL4 Code Base but not this latest version. Thanks for all the great work. You indicators a some of the finest available.

    Reply
    • Thanks for positive feedback. When I provided the source code of version 1, immediately many people changed the code and flooded with their “improved” version and EA. Ofcourse, they were full of bugs and I start getting emails to improve them. So, after that, I’m posting only compiled version.
      Hope you understand.

  11. Hi,

    If alerts are generated, How can I enable them?

    Would be interesting to get an alert (sound / message) if a new signal is generated.

    What is the best timeframe?

    Have you an experience with Doda-Donchian applied on DJ30, DAX ….?

    Merci +++ for your return.

    Reply
    • There are no sound alerts at this moment. Will implement this feature in next version. Screen alerts are displayed automatically. The best time frame for this indicator is H4. It works well with stock market also. Try it. I’ve already tested that.

      Hope it will help you.

  12. Hello,
    Just discovered your indicator and very impressed.

    Would be great to have a pop up alert if using a number of currencies.
    Looking forward to making some progress.

    Thank you

  13. How do i set the Take Profit after Opening Position?

    I think this indicator will be more impressive if you add a sound alert when there are new positions open signal

    thanks

  14. This is a fine indicator. Robert Miner just uses the same with some adjusting. The stopp from a donchian-HL moves just in cas a new high or low was done.
    So a 4-barhigh-stopp is adjusted only to the last new area, when a new low was done.
    Insidebars do not count.
    When there is no new low, the the stoppline stays at the level and is just moved, when an new low was generated. Could you do a readjustment, that we can do this too?

  15. I have changed to 48 peroid and run 1H chart time frame, and sit back enjoy the ride, by then you would profit more than 100 pips. rather then jump in and out just for few pips.

  16. Its a great indicator…trying it for demo account..how ever can a alert be included in this indicator, so that a signal comes, it alerts the user..as being a fully time worker like me needs some alert for the same..

    Thank you

  17. Nice indicator. I would like to use it but the support and resistance seem to reverse? And has it traded well for you Steven Ly?
    Thanks, Don

  18. No new posts? I can see why. Is this site gone? BB-squize dark indicator is a total joke. If I followed it’s rules I would be losing on many trades. DDonchian is nothing more than lots of crowded lines and numbers on my chart ..makes it very distractive.

    I do well with my system Thank you very much.

  19. Is there any output buffer in the programme that can give the value of the Donchian Blueline so that it can be used within an EA?
