howdy from Auckland and a question!

Hi guys!

Been dabbling (gambling really) in the markets for the last few years. My initial attraction was the ability to leverage previous metals on margin without buying the real thing. You can guess how that went.... :P

But this year I started paying for some T/A education by a guy who does median line analysis... and it's made alot of sense to me. So I'm quite excited now, though aware that it's gonna take a lot of practice and hard work.



My question is- is there a place you can just download charts in pictures or movie format? Just purely for experience' or educational reasons?
E.g. I was thinking if someone had a library, it could be a series of pictures at regular intervals. They could also choose a random instrument and have it not revealed to the end.

So that way one could- for practice sake, just simply look at price movement and swipe through picture after picture- internalizing and learning how price action tends to respond.

Or- if such a thing doesn't exist, would you find it useful or educational? to be able to pick a series of charts- and try to understand price action? (maybe even a multiple choice at certain segments would be neat, like an interactive)

Price Behavior


You could try this if you cannot find exactly what you are looking for:
Just Build any Chart you like such as CL,GC.ES.6E or what ever instrument you like, and also whatever timeframe.
Make sure to have Enough History Built into the Chart and Start from way back in Time on the Chart.
Then at the Bottom of your Chart screen click the arrow one bar at a time and look to see the Trade set ups or Price movement.
I do this a lot in the past to test myself on Entries/Exits.
You can also try market replay that is offered in Ninjatrader.
Hope this might help you.

Those are good ideas and I plan to do so.

On the other hand handing images handy would be great if say you're at the gym or on the bus, (away from computer).

Hi Jordan,

We could just arrange a meeting via this website? I'm not sure what the policies are regarding publishing e-mails on this site.

What time is good for you to meet up?

If you work in the city then we can just meet up around here during lunch or after work.

Cheers,
Alex

Hi Jordan,

I didn't realize that we can send private messages on here.

I tried to pm you my e-mail, but I need more than 5 posts to be able to use that feature.

If you want you can just pm your e-mail to me and I will get back to you by mail.

Alex
