@ cunparis so what your looking for in a trade set up is where the long range chart direction is heading, the dots are not a must on the 11 range nor the macd they are just added things to look at,basically you want the 11 range to say the trend is this direction,then start looking at your 4 range for trades in the same direction...7 zero lag,bar colors,eco2 has to be away from the zero line...and look for some dots,then start watching your jt stat on the 11 r and the 4 r for both to be the same color after the dots already appear, the 22 ema 22 zero lag is not a must to have already changed because its slower than the 7 zerolag its just something to look at for a med range trend,just make short scalps in the direction of the long range trend,and say you in a long and the 4 range jt stats starts changing even alittle then start looking to exit fast, just my rules are a overall trading method but dont tie your hands with rules,my rules are just a overall bigger picture to look at it doesnt mean every indicator has to agree with each other. remember no such thing as a perfect entry,even a picture perfect entry can go bad on you.i hope this helps alittle...sharky

macd

and also if you take the macd same settings and put them on a one min chart make them like size 600 or bigger and scrunch the window down they make for a nice 2nd oppinion along with the jt stat to look at for exits and entries as long as everthing else concers...sharky

Excellent Sharky, thank you very much for the clarifications. I think you've done a great job sharing your ideas and your tools, now it's up to us to practice practice practice! I saw in the chatroom that some other traders are having success so I must do what it takes to join them.

so what i want is to give my rules for entries and my charts and indicators for anyone who is interested in the sharky style of scalping. to start i use a 4 range chart to trade with and an 11 range chart to see the long trend and to help me with my entries. on my 11 range chart if my 14 zerolag 1 adx has plotted i look to see what color my candle is,what color the jt stat is,what color the macd is,and what color my 7 zero lag dma is.if everything tells me to go long then i only take longs on my 4 range and vise versa. i always try to trade with the jt stat on my 11 range for entries and i use the 4 range jt stat to help with exits look at my charts for more on that,if my jt stat on my 11 range is green then i look for a entrie on my 4 range,then when my jt stat turns even alittle red on my 4 range i start looking for a exit. my method of trading is looking for a break up or break down out of a consolidation period. some traders draw a support line in chop and trade when the price breaks above that or below that,it's what im doing also but im letting the adx automatically plot it for me so i dont have to draw it everytime myself.

Sharky in above quote you said your method is to look for consolidation period break up or break down. I like this type of simple method. Your more recent posts are confusing me though because you keep adding more and more stuff to them. I am new here But if it ain't broke why fix it. I mean what was wrong with the original method.

I would like to see you talk about trade management because I firmly believe money is made and lost in how you elect to manage the trade or if you elect to allow the market to control you. i think the indicator is less of a factor. You appear to be a good trader so I look forward to as many posts and conversations about management as what has already been shared here about indicators. People put too much weight on them.
