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.

Do you mean Swing indicator that comes with standard Ninja installation? I use them in my trading method. I usually wait for a swing line and then retracement close to that line. If price cross that line I go short or long. I hope that answers your question.

Hi Manny1,

you can find more infos here

IMO there are too many variables to find a mechanical way to use this indicator. I think the author meant to help visualize some patterns as illustrated by Al Brooks Trading Webinar's - Big Mike Trading Forum , must be used with discretion according to your own style and method.

Please use the existing PriceActionSwing thread to ask questions so we don't have a split topic.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
