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.

They look like a line break chart with HeikenAshi ontop, this is on Ninja

here is GC, I didnt see enough volume on Sept Contract, so I picked August... I think 1 tick would be a bit aggressive to trade, so I used what I would trade if I was doing metals.. 5 ticks.. I dont know enough about GC to provide any opinions.. so take things with a grain of salt..

what day and time did you used? not sure of your timezone, so I could not match the timeframes exactly, if you let me know I can carry the exercise as I would be interested on doing comparisons against other exotic bars..

I would rather say:

Midrange Bars (on TraderVec) = Median Renko and/or Hybrid Renko (on NT)

Futures Edge on FIO

this are the bars I use on my own trading... they eliminate a lot of noise for me, and I find them better than renko bars.. IMO of course... here are some examples of using Midrange bars on various instruments.. and then compared to other bar types.. you be your own judge and determine if you find them better or not..

simple setups... TLA's that I use for multiple HTF guidance... volume indi... Parabolic... and MF, which I find of use to help me with my bias..

Is there an explanation of what exactly this bartype aims to accomplish? I mean does TradeVec describe it in some way?


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.
