Volume chart with commentary.

Here is a commented chart on a ES volume chart. Again no change in settings whatsoever, but since the high volatility environment kind of "compresses" time, a "time-less" chart is ideal.

Good trading to all

DLL is now protected against hacking

Each DLL is now 'crafted' manually to make it a bit more difficult for hackers to crack. Nothing short of full decompiling to assembler is needed now. I really doubt a hex reader or debugger can do it. If you manage to crack it, at least please let me know :)

DLL now adapts calculation depth to CPU speed

One size doesn't quite fit all so I have added a routine which sets a Population Multiplier in our Genetic Algorithm according to CPU speed. Of course, CPUs nowadays are multi-core, but since it is not clear how TradeStation utilizes processing power, it was decided to keep this simple.

if ( nCPUSpeed > 3000 ) nPopMult = 12;
else if ( nCPUSpeed > 2000 ) nPopMult = 9;
else if ( nCPUSpeed > 1500 ) nPopMult = 6;
else nPopMult = 3;

In other words, if the CPU is over 3GHz (3000) it will look 4 times deeper than an old or low entry processor running under 1.5GHz.

No other functionalities added in this release, except for Swing2 which calculates Fib automatically (hence eliminating synch issues). The RetrievePivotInfo indicator is left for tutorial purposes.

DLL version is 1.21 (Dec 10th 2008)

Entropy indicator : minor update

The Entropy indicator has been marginally recoded to better reflect "realtimeness" exactly the same way as MTFS. However, the "Realtimeness" factor does exarcebate dramatically movements of the indicator, so it is still possible to set the parameter to -1 to eliminate its influence.
