I noticed the other day that you had hit "Market Wizard" (red name :becky:) status.

This means that you are both one of the more prolific posters on futures.io (formerly BMT), and also, more...

You are wise to take precautions.

However, remember that "A bull market climbs a wall of worry."

Translation: bad news is good; good news is bad. Well, sort of, anyway, some of the time.......

That's funny, I don't think I ever, or hardly ever, see a price action chart on futures.io (formerly BMT) that only has horizontal s/r lines.... I do read a lot of the threads in the Elite section (I...

Sure, I agree with everything you said. Everything is easy in hindsight, after all, and this is actually not so easy to do in real time. People do start out with high hopes, and then find things are...

Since you occasionally mention "price action," and it's apparently kind of a new term for you, I thought I would, for illustration, just show you a price action chart. This is a style of chart...

I've used both. I pretty much agree that the pinch in the Bollingers is very valuable, and the Keltner won't ever do that. You could use Keltners as a substitute for traditional hand-drawn...

The Bollinger Squeeze is not bad, but all it does is try to show when the Bollinger width has gotten narrow enough to be significant. That's what the comparison to the Keltner, which is slower to...

Thanks. It'll take a while to digest and have a comment, but it is interesting.

Basically, it's fine with me whatever you find that works for you. I am interested in these types of indicators...

"Price action" has nothing to do with tick charts as such, nor necessarily short-term charts or trading. It is drawing trend lines and channels, support and resistance, and chart patterns. Usually...

I'm busy all day today, unfortunately, so I can only hit some high points.

I use the "traditional" indicators in assorted ways, not always traditional in the sense that the elementary books say (I...

Sorry to take so much time to get some charts up.

Since you mentioned to try something other than what Malthus posted, I decided on Crude Oil futures (CL), because:
