Indicator for Scalping?

On a 233 or 144 volume 3LBW looking for a good indicator that gets one in on the first bar of the new swing but effectively filters out at least some of the "bad" signals. The current indicators I am using confirm the swing very late in the swing (3rd - 5th bar) when the scalp move is usually over. Any suggestions?

Please don't take offense. But your post resembles private messages I routinely get from new traders:

"I only want a system that makes $50-100 a day. Can you tell me which system to download?"

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

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.

No offense taken. It's an honest question and I'm not a new trader. Just looking for some suggestions to test and play with on my own and find out what others have tried that have not worked.

Best advice I can give is to read here:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/11125-ask-any-trading-question.html

You'll at least know where I stand after reading that thread.

I'm sure someone else can give you recommendations on the indicator you are after.

Nice grail pic Big Mike

TrendTraderBH. Have you seen Perry's Continuation Method and thread? the MAmulti and MTF indicators may be somewhat along what you're looking for. You can adjust it so it "fades" out bars that are in a flat trend (based on settings like divergence or congruence of different time frame slopes of ma's) vs. solid bars which are more in a trend.

Perry also demos the indicators in his recent webinar:

indicators for scalping trades

I get great scalping trade results with the indicators that I got from navitrader. You might want to take a look at them, too. The volume charts on ninjatrader work great with them and you can get in right after a pivot break. I think they now give a free trial, so you can try them out for yourself.

Well, I've been doing some research on MACDBB's with different time frames, I've seen many post on that, and even a guy posting his journal in futures.io (formerly BMT)! using it and showing consistent profit using 'em! I sure doubt that it's live trading his doing! but atleast I got to know about the indicator and now trying play with it myself!
