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.

I've attached the EmaMult21A you requested. Got it from TMFT awhile back.

Just click the link in the blue shaded area, (below) where it indicates "Attached Files" and it should download to your computer automatically. (Wherever you have your downloads set to download to).

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

It would have to be Fattails' ohlc with fib retracements, 618 is and will always be 618. That's reliability.

@kvvinn

If an indicator is in the .cs form, you need to download or copy and paste it to NT7/BIN/Custom/Indicator. When you bring up NT it should appear in your indicator list. If not, open any indicator in the editor and compile it. (Every indicator will be compiled).

This is something that was popular back in the 1970's.

Could you post a chart with the "Fennel Line" on it, I'm curious what it looks like..(esp at a divergence point)

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

SPtrader, I need to get software that allows me to post jpg's. A word docx would not look good.
The calculation of the location is a bit complex but it looks like a line in the future time period on a chart.
The divergence situations you can find very easily by plotting the RSI and Stochastic.

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.

@lblanks

They should call this the THatManFromTexas squeeze.. it's old ... it's not fancy ... amazingly it still works...

Bollinger and Keltner both set to 2, 21

As usual....@MWinfrey is correct...

If I I had to pick an indicator I think it would be Fat Tail's Noise and Volatility bands. The Euro just tends to gravitate to those bands like no other. The other would be to have an open and calm and peaceful mind.

Trafford

Hi Trafford,

Thank you for your information.

a) I searched download area, I couldn't find Fat Tail's Noise and Volatility bands. Could you kindly give link?
b) "The Euro just tends to gravitate to those bands." Does the Euro mean 6E? (Mini Russel 2000) TIA

Go to the download area and you see many indicators. you find one that Fat Tails has done like Session Pivots, double click on the name and it will take you to the indicator, double-click on the question mark[?] next to field titled submitted by Fat Tails and this will show you all indicators submitted by FT.

Hi fusion:
Session Noise bands and Volatility bands are 2 separate indicators. Noise bands is No. 1 in your list, Volatility bands is not. Please read this thread: https://futures.io/139536-post.html
Post #1 of that thread list all the Session indicators including the Volatility bands that you are looking for. You should also watch the Webinar by @Fat Tails linked in Post #2 of that thread.

Standard MACD 12-26-9. Why? Because when the fast MA shoots through the ZeroLine concurrent with the trend on a 2 Min chart, it's good for at least 1 point on the TF, many times 2. If I could have a 2nd Indicator, it'd be a 9 TMA with a+2 Displacement.
