Oh, come on ... put up two separate charts ... you are young enough to still have some degree of hand eye coordination, multitasking ability and your synapses probably still synapse with some degree of regularity and dependability .... where as I have to pin my address to my shirt if I go outside...

Pin it to the front side, as people won't see it on the back side, while you are sitting in your wheel chair.

You guys crack me up. I go to sleep and wake up in laughter from your banter.



FYI, TMFT: I use many more timeframes on my charts than the number of your trophy wives.
And as timeframes are like people for me, I feel like I am living in a tribe.

Fat Tails, I don't understand the technical reasons the Visual SMA 30 and 60 Min do not "work"
on a tick chart and how my chart would look differently if they did. However, the attached picture
is sufficient for me to be more than satisfied with what I see.

Once again, thank you very much.

One Trade on the Sim

When using charts that don't work properly, ignorance is bliss!

@plethora: I very much hope that it was @ThatManFromTexas who has coded them and not me.

The VisualSMA and VisualEMA should work correctly. Why do you think that they don't work? With a 30 min setting, the VisualSMA produces one signal every 30 minutes. If you put that on a tick chart,
there will be lots of new values during the night session, although there are only a few ticks. This means that the VisualSMA will approach price in a quick movement, which can be seen on the chart.

@plethora: The VisualSMA allows to shows the nodes, those are the points, where the values from the SMA are collected and transferred to the primary bars. During the night session there are only 11 such nodes, although there are 34 values (the duration of the night session is 17 hours).

As the tick chart does not follow a linear time axis, the 34 values supplied by the SMA are transferred to the 11 appropriate tick bars and condensed into the narrow night session. If you add a minute bar series to your chart, it will use a linear scale for time, the VisualSMA will look correct, and you will find a tick bar every then and now.

@Fat Tails

I think @plethora was being facetious since the 2 trades were profitable.... in which case... yes it was because of an indie I wrote ....
