An alternative to 7-Zip is IZArc.

IZArc - Download

Both utilities can be clearly recommended.

Ok, done.
Same error.
No idea what I'm doing.
Maybe I set the location of where downloads go to the wrong path, long ago.
No idea really.
Attachment only shows I downloaded 7-zip. No quite sure what to do beyond that. (sorry)

Create a new thread if this doesn't work, you are off-topic here.

Install 7-zip.

Then, if using 7-zip on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you need to run it as Administrator (elevated privileges) in order to change file associations. If you don't know how to do this, google it. Then, go to Tools - Options within 7-zip, and check 7z for associated file extensions and hit OK, and exit program.

You won't need to run it elevated after this, it is only to change file associations.

the only little problem with izarc is that opencandy is included, if I'm not mistaken.

Two videos from eminimind. I mentioned that site a while back.
The trader uses Fibonacci a great deal. I was wondering if anyone
here has any strong opinions on that. Is it all in the eye of the beholder,
or just coincidence, or something useful??

Videos below. If you already have an opinion on Fibonacci, there would
be no need to see them of course.

First video in about 6E and Fibonacci.
Second video is about ES and Fibonacci. (the ES is off topic but it's
about Fibonacci really, so I hope that's ok.)

This is off topic but since he's trading the Euro, I'll add my two cents here. I hate to be critical of someone else's trading method really but I think fibonacci trading as a reason for entering a trade is a good way to step in front of a freight train. One of the biggest problems with using fibs for entries is determining whether you're drawing your anchor from the correct area. Fibs are excellent in using as an after the fact tool but as a sole trading tool, it can be random for sure.

Ok, I appreciate your comment. Maybe some traders would use a zig-zag for:

Someone recommended a special zig-zag indicator for me a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately,
for whatever reason, I didn't check it out. Perhaps in these videos, the trader looked for charts that
support his Fibonacci trading setups. (???)

when trading currency futures, I believe fibonacci is probably one of the most important tools you can find. not because those are magic numbers, because many traders are watching them. the problem is how to draw them and on what time frame.

I personally only use fib confluence / cluster plus volume for entries and exits. fibs on larger time frame and volume on smaller time frame.

One of his big things, is to go with the trend until it fails. It seems he
uses the Fib levels as a methodical way of determining if a trend has changed.
Though he does more with them than that I believe. (They really worked great
on the charts he showed anyway.)
