Extended Pivot Points Indicator

Hi everyone,
I've created an indicator that calculates pivot points, support and resistance levels for the next trading day (Extended Pivot Points).
There's a useful 2min video on investopedia explaining the basic principles of the indicator:
http://www.investopedia.com/video/play/pivot-points/

I wanted to share a complete indicator but I'm unfortunately receiving the following error message on most of my algorithms:
"Backtest Error: Could not find the algorithm DLL in upload files. If uploadinga custom DLL please ensure it inherits class QCAlgorithm to match the interface."
Haven't been QC-ing for a week now so perhaps there has been an update to the source code that require some changes to my codes?

Would appreciate some community advise on this :)
All the best
/Chris
Update Backtest








Hey Chris! That error message normally means there are multiple QCAlgorithm classes or we can't find any. Do you mind if I take a look at your code?

We have been making changes but only on the beta site - if I can't figure out what is wrong with your algorithm I'll deploy our beta live.

Thanks Jared,
Yes please have a look. Appreciate it!
Hmm. thought I attached the code... anyways, here it is :)

Hmm.. I must be missing something.
Is there something else I need to do to share my code?

hehe sorry you can only share backtests at the moment (which have code they were run with) -- but as admin I can view to your private project with your permission. I'll view it and fix it today

Beautiful code -- I got it to build the only change was removing the " : QCAlgorithm" from ExtendedPivotPoints and TradeBarConsolidator_Custom. By having multiple "QCAlgorithm" classes the backend got confused which one to run. I don't think you need QCAlgo on those classes anyway.

Nice! Thank you. Really. Happy it was an easy fix.
I'll run a quick backtest and share the code that way shortly.

I'd be interested to see a backtest how SPY (or any other main ETF) performs using the monthly &/or weekly S1 as a buy signal and R1 as a sell signal. The pivot points are a classic technique used by traders for a long time!

I'd write the script myself if I knew more about coding - baby steps...

Do you mind sharing your code?
