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.

That looks like an indicator I posted years ago on the NINJA forum when the 3 period 6 period and 9 period VMA are stacked and sloped the background colors. I think I called it "three coins in a fountain." I used the VMA because that indicator is really flat when there is no trends. Glad someone is making money with a similar idea!

not sure what 'rainbow must agree' means but I suspect it's beyond my programming skill.
since your alert is the result of multiple signals I don't know how to combine them either.
What I come up with is just some visual clues, color background when macd cross zero, triangles on MACD to indicate when MA(4) crosses MA(8), and color when Laguerre cross above/below.

Hello! Do you have the template of this chart?? Thanks in advance!

I change templates frequently so that one is long gone.
