Thanks. I am 100% algo. I am attempting to leverage HF / MM techniques at the upper end of retail level latency as crazy as that sounds. Like many HFT systems, my system has no directional bias and is agnostic to the majority of the conventional trading mechanics most people watch.

Really appreciate your comment. Very insightful and new stuff to me. I will have to give this further study and thought.

This comment also intrigued me. What are you using then...? A quantitative or automated system?

I've done quite some work these last years myself moving away from charts, but I'm now moving back towards them to aid execution and entries.

Nice signature, by the way.

In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.
