Welcome to

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.

Useless does not necessarily equate to worthless ... if we create a thread on (formerly BMT) touting the amazing results achieved with this indicator... within a week some trading "Guru" will have renamed it and included it in his $5000 "proprietary" trading indicators package along with a monthly maintenance fee....

In fact is not useless. It is just a Keltner with some CPU load added. You get some added value, because

- it has a fancy name
- it's real nature as boring Keltner is obfuscated

thus allowing you to sell it to beginning traders, who will happily use it on their tuned PCs.

I have been considering the purchase of a system that uses proprietary acceleration bands and decided to check Big Mike's site. Thanks Fat Tails for saving me from throwing more money away on a system that is probably all fluff and no stuff.

Hi guys

I know that this thread is quite old, but I want to know from wiser users what do they think about the combine between OBVDiver and Acceleration Bands.
I post a screenshot of GC, where there is an interesting situation while OBVDiver pass through the bands: could it be suitable for an entry?
This is one but not unique situation
