Notes on the Pinball Scan

As noted at the bottom of every scan report, we are using the range from the CLOSE to the 34ema to calculate the percent potential profit (as compared to the range from the 8ema to the 34ema) simply because the CLOSE is where the actual price is located. This usually results in a somewhat lower predicted percent profit.  

For complete info on the parameters we are using in our scan, please read the Pinball Finder User Guide which is linked at the bottom of the right sidebar.  

I scan for Today’s Volume > 250,000 and Closing Price between $0.35 and $100.00    The scan is set to hit all “percent profit” of 5% or more, even though 10% or 12% is generally used by Pinball Pattern advocates — the actual calculated Percent Potential Profit is shown in a column of the results — you can eliminate any that are lower than YOUR preferred profit percentage.

Update to Pinball search conditions

Tonight, July 29th, several people were pointing out EXXI as a ‘great pinball’ but it did not show up on our nightly scan tonight.

After carefully checking each of the conditions in our scan program, I found that the condition which kept EXXI from ‘hitting’ was the requirement that the 2ema be above the T-Line …

While this would be a preferred condition, the pattern of EXXI (see below) really IS a nice pinball pattern …  so we have removed that one condition from the scan requirements.

Unique Tradestation Indicators

I have begun to make some of my unique and enhanced indicators for Tradestation available to others.

If you use Tradestation for charting and/or strategies,
you might be interested to check out

http://TSindicators.jimcooper.biz

and see what I have developed so far …

One of MY favorites is my Universal Moving Average
which offers many extra features such as “future extension”
and easily understood audible alert messages. [click for info]

ADX with automatic Trend indication
(yes, our ADX can show trend direction as well as strength!)

The usual display of ADX is a single line, and the usual interpretation of ADX is that “it shows the strength of the trend but not the direction.” To determine the direction of the trend the usual procedure is to plot two more lines ( +DI and -DI ) and then visually decide which one is “on top.”

A recent webinar suggestion was to use the histogram, instead of a line, to display the strength of the ADX trend indicator. This seemed like an excellent idea, but then why not use a ‘flipped’ histogram to show a down-trend and the normal histogram to show an up-trend?

Our proprietary coding does just that! Now you can look at the display below and you can immediatly, visually see both the strength and direction of the trend at each point on the chart. In addition, the various levels of strength are color coded AND yellow is used to show histogram reversals. (You will find that tops and bottoms on the price chart usually match the point where our histogram turns yellow!)

Purchase now for only $99.

Hello world!

Welcome to our PINBALL TRADING blog !

The PINBALL chart pattern was first recognized and named by Rick Saddler, who operates the HitAndRunCandlesticks.com web site and training room.

I (Jim Cooper) have developed and coded an indicator for use with the Tradestation charting and trading platform. This indicator displays, on any stock chart, the presence of the PINBALL PATTERN, as well as showing the ‘buy area’ which Rick suggests.  (The chart in the header for this blog shows an example of a chart with two PINBALL patterns).

In addition to the chart indicator, I’ve developed a SCAN which can be used in Tradestation to automatically FIND all the charts which contain the Pinball Pattern RIGHT NOW…  so you only have to look at those charts when you want to set up a Pinball Trade.

This blog will be used to share info and examples using both the indicator and the scanner ..

If you would like to get an email whenever we update the blog (so you dont have to remember to come back here and look!), then click on the little [ Follow ] button at the top of the right sidebar, or the floating button at the bottom right of the window…

BUY the PINBALL FINDER Tradestation Indicator and Scanner

OK, seems like it’s time to make our handiwork available to those of you who are using Tradestation and who like what we’ve developed.  Have had some inquiry recently on how people can get it, so here’s what we’ll do …

For now, we’ve set the price at $150 as a ‘flat fee’ basis.  This means you get everything you need to set up the Pinball Finder on your Tradestation charts and scanner; it will be coded to work only in your account, but it will work on ANY pc you log in from, as long as you are in your account.  We will provide you with not only the indicator, but also a workspace template with everything installed for you.

Needless to say, this is a very “customized” arrangement so it’s not something that can just be downloaded right away and installed.  Once you place your order, we will set everything up and make arrangements to get the files to you — depending on your level of PC skills, and we’ll work with you if necessary on the installation and setup.

To order, you can either just make the $150 payment to me via Paypal at
paypal@jimcooper.org  (leave your email and contact info in the comments section) …

or use the link below to access the pre-formatted order form at Paypal —

I have developed for myself quite a few innovative indicators and layouts for use in the Tradestation platform – including the Pinball pattern and the Rounded Bottom Breakout. Some have already been purchased by other TS users; some I am using but have not yet set them up to sell and support.

BRAND NEW! I have just coded the Volatility Stops which are so popular in TC2000 and Think or Swim but have not been available in Tradestation. Really sweet stops!

You can find a list of the many features and indicators at:
