Yes, ive used it off & on over 2 yrs now and i was always comming back to it..I like the colors, particlary zero line..green/red..gives u a hint that pressure seems to be building up and chop line turns blue/brown as pa breaks.

Divergence is more detailed, too.

Try to recognize pattern of a top

A big bar that surge above the other
A tin green (up() bar that goes up the last bar and does no go far

As a mandatory rule, I never go long if I don't have a target to reach ( an upper spike high) on the left of my entry bar

Again, Always have an upper, achievable target on your left before going long

Good luck

Martin

The only reasons I look to short a high or buy a low, is on divergence, and/or spiking volume followed by no follow through. I use divergence, because markets generally do not turn around on V tops and V bottoms, they will generally attempt double/tripple tops/bottoms, and generally create divergences in the process. Also, spiking volume followed by the inability to continue in the same direction typically signifies exhaustion. These are signs of spent momentum.

Im picking up on looking for divergence, while in action that is..& while in the action, being more sure that the divergence "IS' finished, not continuing a dwn/up move while pressure is building...doing replay this week-end practicing...

Volume indicator, I dont always put on my chart...I try to keep less items on my charts to keep it clean, less messy..less to decipher...I probably should put volume on there? or overlay it on my wcci & make the color less intrusive...so I dont get a headache

Im gonna google V tops & bottoms and see what that looks like...I think I do know? basicly just a double top or bttm?

Thanks for ur input, I appreciate your experiance in the matter.

Bill
