DVAN SmartLines

Overview


The DVAN SmartLines app overlays price bars and shows buy cycles and sell cycles, support and resistance levels, and points of trend change in the underlying security.

  • Green shading indicates a buy cycle 
  • Red shading indicates a sell cycle 
  • The upper and lower boundaries of the SmartLines show support and resistance levels for position management and the middle line (pivot line) shows the price point at which trend change occurs 
  • In a buy cycle the upper line is the Trend, and the trailing line is the Stop. The Stop line also shows the buy cycle either contracting or expanding, and leads to the convergence into a sell cycle. 
  • In a sell cycle the lower line is the Trend, and the trailing line is the Stop. The Stop line also shows the sell cycle either contracting or expanding, and leads to the convergence into a buy cycle.

To apply the DVAN SmartLines select the tool from the DVAN tool group. The indicator will then be applied to your chart.

Actions & Properties


Actions


Add Technical Alert: When selected a Technical Alert will be created for the selected security.

Add to Toolbar: Click this action to add the selected DVAN SmartLines to your custom toolbar.

Apply Settings to All: When multiple DVAN SmartLines tools have been applied to a chart, page or workbook, this action can be used to apply the settings of the one selected to other instances of the tool. This is a great time saver if an adjustment is made to the tool - such as hiding or adding levels - as this allows all the other DVAN SmartLines tools in the chart, page or entire workbook to be updated instantly.

Copy Data to Clipboard: Will copy the tool's values to the clipboard which can then be inserted into a spreadsheet, for example, allowing for further analysis.

Copy Tool: Allows you to copy the selected DVAN SmartLines, which can then be pasted onto a different chart window.

Move to Back: If the tool is displaying in front of other tools or indicators clicking this action will move the tool to the background.

Move to Front: If the tool is displaying behind other tools or indicators on the chart, clicking this action will bring the tool to the forefront.

Restore Default Settings: Click this action if you have adjusted the default settings of the DVAN SmartLines, and wish to return to the standard properties originally installed with Optuma.

Save Settings as Default: If you have adjusted any of the Properties (colour, for example) you can save the adjustments as your new default setting. Each time the DVAN SmartLines are applied to a chart, the tool will display using the new settings.

Delete: Delete the DVAN SmartLines from the chart.
