Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

So my plan was to ONLY take trades that present some type of divergence on the 377 tic chart. No matter if that was a pullback to the 13 OR the 50 EMA on the 1508.

It's been a bit slow, and haven't seen very many setups. But today there where two of them, and I just happened to not be around when they happened.


You may not have been around but it is good that you see the correct patterns. those would have been 2 excellent trades and if I see the chart correctly both would have achieved 21 ticks

ZigZag indicator


Hi Charles,



On 1508 tick chart for ZigZag indicator.


What is your setting for "Use high and low"? True or False?

Thanks

Milford

HH and LL Printed on Charts

Current FIO User Poll

How many monitors do you use for trading?

 
Forestang-
How do you get those HH and LL printed on the chart. My Zig zag does not do it.
Thanks

That's actually another Zigzag indicator. I have both on my chart as I was just trying to observe if it plotted any differently than the other one.

Has anyone looked a the code for both? It may not be a bug, but just that each indicator is using a different criteria or method to determine the swing points.

The ZigZagUTC doesn't have any logic for dealing with anomalies (and there are quite a few anomalies in price series). But I don't think indicator perfection is really the issue in this method (or any other, for that matter).

Besides PriceActionSwing, there's also the NinjaPriceAction indicator, which I believe was first developed for the AHG thread on ET.

I've been in search of the indicator that marks up the chart with the HH, HL, LH, LL,

which one is it, and to simplify the search, could you include it in your response or a link to it, whether its Elite, general session or on the Ninja downloads,

thanks in advance and also for your work in comparing the various zag series

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
