This chart has been on my desktop all week. But I failed to see it's simplicity until now.

What is the simplicity that you see in it? Is there anything better about this than the other templates you've experimented with?

@bugsbunny

That's just it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I didn't. I made a few chump change trades off a sister chart on the other side of my 40" monitor. This chart has been squashed into the right of my screen all week. I just widened it out.

I am going to put your #s on it tomorrow. Thanks Tiberius

@forrestang

is too just enter the market on all red or all blue, and set my stop to the SuperTrend line. Then when the stoch on the bottom indi breaks from the OB/OS zones....tighten the stop or get out or scale out.

Is this better than the others? Yes, because I like the intermediate trend; I don't think this template will work on a shorter period. No, I have a super template on TOS, that I can't duplicate in NT7. And no, the d9 doesn't paint correctly in "calculate on close" = false; that leaves the last price column d9 empty. And maybe, because I am working on some great ideas with the other templates.

I'd like to take a gander at that template if you don't mind, it looks interesting for sure.

Are you thinking of trading say just the first move that happens after a color change, or all successive ones as well?

And do you make any distinction between say the light blue and dark blue, or would you treat them both the same?

@forrestang

I put a (white) chop zone on the d9. The "trade" is to wait for the darker color. But I am willing to enter in the lighter colors if price has clear the d9 chop zone or is clearing it; which means I am getting a crossover in the ZSharkChop zone. This template has not been tested, but I am going to do it live with the M6E; scale in and out with 2 contracts. I will take a successive, if the ZiNon is the constant color dot and the stoch is turning back to the OB/OS zone. And lastly I may add the GW_TriDiff and/or TradersDynamicIndex indicator to this template to see if I can get a better exit.

For those...........

who are interested............here is the last modification of the above template. It is true that I have a killer indi on TOS that I need coded for NT7, but until then. The general rules are: get in on the TripleColor, get out on the TriDiff crossover. The specific rules are to understand and respect what the three bottom indi's are telling you.
