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 do you want an up arrow on the chart when all these conditions are true and vice versa for a short?

Or do you want a meter of sorts that for example is green when all of these conditions are true and red for short?

You have defined so far to trend states.... either up where all of these conditions are true, and dn when the reverse of these conditions are true.

If say two of 3 of these criteria are true, does this put it into a third state where say the trend meter would be yellow?

Do this, mark up a chart with these indicators of what you want to see on your chart with the indicators on them when your conditions are met.

Either you plot an arrow, or you just have a meter on the bottom of the price panel showing the color of your desired state.

I think it is best to give an arrow on the bar after these conditions are met. When the ADX is blue and the EMA indicator is in trend mode, place an arrow on the next bar after close.

Traded this method on a range bar chart yesterday and got my head handed to me with using tight stops. What seems to work exceptionally well on heavy volume days seems to get wasted on days like yesterday.

Perhaps one thing you might want to do if this procedure is so easy is to make a screencast and post it for the forum (I am pretty sure Jing is resource light and easy to use although I never tried). This way I don't have to feel like it's coders against thinkers anymore. I would like to join the darkside
