It doesn't not work... its probably just not for me. Maybe I just never learned to use it well.

I had it on Tick charts, Range charts and Minute charts of various lengths and it does work if you have the patience to sit and wait for it. The problem I had was being able to focus on actual setups while looking for the indicator to fire. I like to use the chart trader in NT and I felt like if I were using the Scalper, I couldnt switch between my ATMs and get a scalp order in and then switch it back fast enough. I'm definitely not skilled enough to trade multiple markets, let alone watch them and try to find good setups with multiple different methods.

So basically I had to pick one method. That said, I felt more comfortable trading the CL and 6E contracts than the ES so I basically gave up on the indicator. Perhaps this thread will make me take another look at it and see if I can somehow use it more regularly

I got the impression from looking at the videos on their website that this strategy was auto-trading. It seems the quick timing effort would require that, but now I'm not sure what this does....
