I've found a couple of references in other forums to lua/MQ4 file conversion being needed to use this indicator in Metatrader4, but can't see if it's ever been done.

I really like the format of this indicator, and would like to be able to use it in Metatrader4 if possible, but can't find a suitable file to download anywhere.

Any advice anyone could offer would be appreciated. Thanks.


MQL4 version of this indicator: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=65401

Hi Apprentice

I know about a period selection option. I was looking for that indicator from the first post. You can see it there on the chart, being displayed in separate window (BF_GRAB it's called). You've mentioned about in the post by you on Tue Apr 03, 2012 7:33 am. You said (just pasted your words) about Grab indicator: 'You have two choices. Use BF version, or use TS functionality, simply select desired time frame as indivator source'.
And this is what I was looking for - a BF version.



Kind regards
Bart

BF_GRAB.lua added.
My recommendation is to use Period option instead.

I've tested period option, on 15 min. chart by setting Grab's indicator source period at 1h, but it draws Grab candles on top of regular 15 min. candles. It's still very usable, but also a bit messy. I think if there was an option for example to display only MA lines it would be great. They would act as a filter and suggest when the price turning point is aligned with higher time frame and therefore more likely to succeed and lead to some good trades.
