What about "one to rule them all" for the different parts in a trade:
  1. one indicator for: enter a trade - signal
  2. one indicator for: calculating initial itop loss
  3. one indicator for: trailing on the winning side

You can combine all three of them into one.

Then you can add three more indicators to simply confuse all people watching your charts.

One indicator to rule them all, one indicator to buy them, one indicator to ride the trend, or in the chop find them.

First observation is that the chart covers the most difficult period to trade ....after 11 a.m EST. Liquidity generally drops like a rock,especially after say, 11.30 a.m. There are very few exceptions.

If you are a brave soul,you may consider counter trade the "trend"

Good luck.

Trader

I know I'm not TMFT but @FamilyTrader is exactly right. Trying to trade 6e after 11am eastern is not the easiest thing to do. Prove it to yourself so to speak by looking at 6e charts for the last month and I suspect you will see the same behavior. I did the same for myself a while back and as a result, I quit trading 6e at about 11 every day.
