@Lmess

Your ZigZag looks like it's too slow, can you set it to a shorter length?

You are missing some swings on it. If you had it quicker, you would have another swing there. And if you are buying, and price on the 377 makes a LL, you must have a DB to take a trade.

Hi Masood. Thanks for the suggestion. I vaguely remember your post about that from awhile back, but I am not sure where to find it. Can you direct me to your post about it, or post the indicator again you are talking about. Thanks.

I did,nt post about this indicator before, but it gives you a numerical number on MA slope and can be downloaded from futures.io (formerly BMT) indicators under MA Slope Multi. I have set it to WDS 21.

That's what I was referring to when I said I tried to tweak the SC ZigZag as similar as possible to the ZigZagUTC. I find this SC ZigZag pretty weird.

Can you post your chart so I can compare?

As for the 377 tick chart, I thought, but I might be mistaken, that on the 377 chart, for longs, a LL could take place if there was a divergence on the Stochastics, as was the case here. Or is it only if a DB with divergence forms?

That latest piece of pa you posted is in this chart to compare.

But I'm pretty sure you must have a DB if a LL occurs on your 377.

Was this a valid entry, setting up just a couple minutes ago?

I also coded a Trigger Lines indicator for SierraCharts, if anyone needs it.

yes it was, I did not take it as we were very close to the days highs. Market looking very sluggish on the highs

We started off the day around 7:30 cst down nearly 100 points and this huge rally has been a 130 point swing off the lows, a period of congestion is probably in order

Sorry, my memory is as faulty as my discernment of the trigger lines. Hopefully, I will figure the latter out eventually.

Thanks.

Just to confirm, what forrestang and I were discussing, for a long setup on the 377 tick chart, is a LL permitted as long as we get a divergence on the stochastics, or does it have to form a DB (meaning no LL allowed) with divergence?

No I dont trade LL divergence - if price does there must be a dbl btm in price. many times if it does dbl btm it will occur inside the ZigZag swings and appear as a head & shoulders look.

These are very hard to see to the un trained eye, so I advise you to stick to the basic setup
