@fantom: your question is a bit tricky
yes, I know how to make $$$ with this indicator, but I cannot say that I made money only due to this indi. This would not be exactly true. There are no indicators that just are giving you money, indicators are just tools, helpful or useless tools. Any tool, if mastered properly is giving you an edge. AMP or korHarmonics indicator can scan me the charts to fine harmonic patterns and potential trades. But if i have no skill to trade harmonics, I will not benefit from AMP or korHarmonics. Simple.
APAMI tool is very helpful, but one need an understanding and skill to use it.
just my 0.02$
Am I doing something wrong. I followed the instructions to download after rebooting and after selecting the indicator in my mt4, I am receiving the following error message. Missing data in Indicator arrays awaiting data refresh. Please help!
APAMI installation STEP by STEP
Get the APAMI files, I use MT4, so I take !APAMI_3.0_FREE_MT4.zip
Extract ex4 file to C:\Program Files\FxPro - MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators
Extract dll file to C:\Program Files\FxPro - MetaTrader 4\experts\libraries
Insert APAMI indicator on the chart.
Wait some seconds. APAMI needs to collect and process some data before appears on the chart.
Change timeframe. Again wait some seconds, as APAMI is recalculating. You will see APAMI working.
Note these were the default parameters. You can change them of course.

i get that error message too. just click on ok and box goes away. the indicator still works though.
Honestly, I have been literally swampted with requests since I released the free version of the indicator....I still did not have some things launched yet. I hope to get back to most request by the end of this weekend. Thank you for your patience.

The smaller the divisor number, the larger the trend you want to identify. Smaller divisor number also identify But typically, 1/3 to 1/10th the ADR is plenty for most traders.
So let's say that the EURUSD's ADR is 200.0 pips. You want to identify a medium length intraday trend. Let's try 1/6th, or 200.0/6 = 33.3 pips. You would then set the moveComplete input to 333 (33.3 pips for 5 digit broker) and observe. If you want to try a different length, either change the indicator properties settings, or open a new chart and test a new length setting with a separate instance of the indicator.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish by 'refreshing' the charts.

APAMI does not save historical moves. The very first 1 or 2 historical moves that appear when you first start apami are 'fake moves' to assist in determining the start point for the first move. If you set the move lookback input to 0, then the current market price at indicator start is the first start point (no fake moves). by changing the timeframe or any indicator setting while the indicator is running, you are basically restarting the indicator.
Once a trend is detected, that's it. At that point, you can make a choice to buy, sell, or wait. You don't take the past with you.
Good short installation instructions here.

I appreciate all of the support and feedback. I hope to get back to individual PMs and requests for the EA that wraps around.
Ultimately, that is what most serious traders want (complete systems). In the mean time, check out the ability for the apami-based EA to perform here (fully automated):

Live Account #2
I am still taking requests for pre-orders via PM, but allow 1 week for me to catchup with the previous requests. thank you.
Great indi. Congrats for best work!
Thanks for this indi, and when will be available the pro-version with alerts?
