How we create The Matrix is by turning on or off any combination of indicators.

When an indicator is active in the matrix, that value is added to the matrix Open, High, Low, Last and charted like a chart.

The benefit to this is you can now use this values based on longer term chart trends rather than the chart being used.

Two additional Time Frame (TF) options:

1. Pick from any type of chart

2. Pick any time frame, tick size, etc.

Example - You apply to trade in the direction of the GreenLine, but you want it based on TF1, 15 min chart, but trade a 2 to 5 minute chart. then The Matrix will apply the weighted value based on the direction of the 15 minute GreenLine direction and not the 2 or 5 minute chart.

Using the Mid-Range can sometimes turn the indicator faster.

Charts to the left -

Top Matrix is displaying the open as the previous bar's close.

Bottom panel is the Mid-Level Range as the new bar's open.

This math plots the Open, High, Low, Last like a chart. There are 17 combinations of indicators that make up The Matrix.

Measures the difference in volume delta going back X bars using an average.

Inputs :

2. Vol = Number of minimum contracts used to calculate the value. If set to 5, then it would be 5 lot or more.

3. Average Period = The average of these values to smooth out The Matrix chart.

4. Bars back means it will only calculate the difference going back X bars. We use 10 as default.

VMI a is defaulted to a 3 average.

VMI b is defaulted to a 7 average, but we are now using 9 for The Matrix calculations.

Current Volume Delta Profile –

1a. Value Options -Choose from a given weighted value of being + or – ?. Or, choose the actual value of the current bar’s volume delta difference.

1b. Turn Value – This only applies to weighted value.

2. Min Lot Size – This is the minimum of contracts used to calculate. If set for 5, then only 5 lots or more would be considered in the calculations.

3. Average – When selected, it averages out the volume for the Open, High, Low, Last.

4. Avg Bars Back – This is part of input 3, average – how many bars back.

Weighted Value

Times Indicator Value

Two Value Options –

Input 3 – Direction of Level 1 Volume Delta Difference –

**1a. Turn Value** – Set the value of the turn to add of subtract from The Matrix values.

**2. Vol Volatility –** This is the lot size to use in the indicator. If set to 1, then 1 lots o more. If set to 10, then it will only use 10 lots or more and not look at 9 or under lot size.

**3. Trade Dir of Avg on/off –** Uses the up and down direction for value.

**3a. Average Period **– If you select 3 for example, then it will average all the values by 3 to smooth the chart out.

**4. Set Bars Back – on/off **– When selected, it will only use X bars back set in 4a.

**4a. Bars Back to Count** – Bars back in used in calculations.

**2. Times Indicator Value** – Use the value of the volume difference.

**2. Vol Volatility **– This is the lot size to use in the indicator. If set to 1, then 1 lots o more. If set to 10, then it will only use 10 lots or more and not look at 9 or under lot size.

**3. Trade Dir of Avg on/off –** Uses the up and down direction for value.

**3a. Average Period **– If you select 3 for example, then it will average all the values by 3 to smooth the chart out.

**4. Set Bars Back – on/off **– When selected, it will only use X bars back set in 4a.

**4a. Bars Back to Count** – Bars back in used in calculations.

Weighted Turn Value

**1. Turn Value –** Uses the up and down direction for value.

**2. Time Frame **– choose from Current Chart, TF1 or TF2.

**3. Ticks Above / Below **– If you select 3 for example, then it will average all the values by 3 to smooth the chart out.

**2. Length **– 3 time frames

1.Current Chart

2. TF1 or TF2 – These time frames can be set

**3. Average Mode **– SMA or EMA

**4. Average of Average Length **– Its the 2nd Average of the Average to smooth it out.

CT 30 – Close Strength Value (CS) –

**1a. 1b. Turn Value –**

1. Weighted Value added or subtracted to The Matrix –

2. Times Value – Takes the value of the indicators and times it by **1c.** If CS is 20, then it would be 20×3 = 60

CT 11 to 13 – Direction of Indicators – any other CT Indicator –

**1a. 1b. Weighted Value Options –**

1. Weighted Value added or subtracted to The Matrix –

2. Times Value – This will use the value of the indicator times by 1b. the value…and add to, or subtract from The Matrix math. Normally keep 1b. around 10 to 20.

**2. Indicator – **Use this drop down menu to choose any of th**e CycleTrader Indicators – **

**4. 4a. – Points move up or down **– To activate the signal, the indicator would have to move X points up or down.

**5. VMIa or VMIb option **– We added a way to add the VMIa or VMIb value to these values and average them into the equation for The Matrix.

**1a. 1b. Weighted Value Options –**

**All of section 2 – **Choose from any combination of CycleTrader Indicators for the PPI combination. The PPI is all the indicators combined into 1 indicator.

1m and 1n are part of the PPI.

2. Average is used to average the values.

3., 4., 5. – Are there to activate the PPI value on if above or below the Buy / Sell Lines.

CT 32 – DSI “Double Smooth Indicator” –

Math of DSI:

Source: Open / Close / Medium

- Take the EMA Length Average
- Average the EMA Length
- DoubleStoch Average #2 of the average of the EMA Average

Then we run these values between 0 and 100.

**3. 4. Length – Average –**

#3 is the length of the EMA and #4 is double average of the EMA.

**7. VMIa / VMIb – **This tells the matrix to add the VMI to the calculations of DSI for the Matrix.

CT 33 – MSI – “Momentum Smooth Indicator”

Math of MSI

Source: The averaged Candle Stick Range

- Averaging the Average Length Range
- Averaging again with Double Average
- DoubleStoch The Average

Then we run these values between 0 and 100.

**2., 3., & 4. Length – Average –**

#2 is the Average Length, #3, is the average of the average and #4 is double average of that average.

**7. VMIa / VMIb – **This tells the matrix to add the VMI to the calculations of DSI for the Matrix.

Measure the distance (Number of ticks) the market is from medium level between the High and Low of the day.

We then times this level by default of 20 –

If the level is at 40, then it would be 40 X 20 = 800 added to the Matrix value.

If the level is at -50, then it would be 50 X 20 = -1,000 subtracted from the Matrix value.
