21 EMA, bog standard, no bells & whistles.

I often wonder why I clutter up my chart, & therefore my mind, with more... (current layout shown).

I thanked you for this post but really the thanks wasn't for the chart or anything trading related. I love the chickens/feathers deal. I love it so much I may use it myself on other forums and put MY initials at the end. I always wanted to have something quotable but it seems at this later stage of life the only way I'll get one is to steal it. So, thanks TMFT.

@MWinfrey

Feel free to steal from me... I probably stole it from someone else... lucky for you... I only steal from the best ...

Hello @ThatManFromTexas,

Glad to see you posting again. Hope all is going well with you. I was wondering if you would share the indicator that's coloring the background on your "Perfect Storm" chart.

Thank you in advance,

Rick



@trs3042

It'a a gradient that changes the background in coordination with the indicator. I got it from the "Make Charts Pretty" thread and changed the orientation from top to bottom to Right to Left.

https://futures.io/ninjatrader-programming/5686-make-charts-pretty.html


Several traders have edited it to fit their indicators. It has quirks ... it will over ride any other screen coloring like coloring a zone between two moving averages, session end marker etc. ... it has to be the last indicator

I have a generic version, do you have a particular indicator you want it to work with or would one that doesn't change work for you? If you don't need it to change you can use the generic one or edit it.

@jtrade

I agree with the way you think... notice my tag line...

But then again, you're probably young, healthy and still have some degree of hand eye coordination... As I get older I have to add "rubber baby buggy bumpers" to the charts to keep me out of trouble ... like the face recognition software that can detect when I nod odd and sound an alarm to wake me up....

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

If I had to choose one indicator it would be ADX......great for confirming strength of a trend, use price action to enter on a pullback. Also works pretty well for divergence if you trade reversals.

@ThatManFromTexas ... haha, I missed your post as I was on vacation in The Alps last week, but if I remember correctly, I'm only 2 years behind you, having turned 60 a couple of weeks back... (or was it MW who said he was 62 - you see, I can't remember !)

kind of thinking, perhaps it doesn't even matter which indicator u choose, so long as u see a pattern, and trade it the same way every time.

my favorite indicator isn't actually an indicator, but a trendline i draw from yesterday's low through the low of the opening 5 m bar. i look for extreme upward angles + then, selloff within 1st 15m-20m + then, bounce.

You are forced to pick only one indicator to trade with.

One single indicator only.

What indicator do you pick, and why?

Just follow the crowd when it starts running. Get out before everybody else jumps off the cliff.

Help re downloading indicators, including cs. files?


If you don't mind a very very basic question, is there a post somewhere that describes how to download indicators, including the cs. variety? I've been away from trading for quite a while and now for some reason I can't seem to download any of the indicators and certainly not the cs. type. I'm interested in that multi EMA cs. one mentioned by That Man From Texas.
