TSI

I downloaded the TSI from the link you supplied in your thread, Though it does not have a section in the setting for Background Color.

Instead it shows OSOB? Any ideas, can not get the background to work, since no settings are avaialble

Being that you are an Elite member, I will e-mail (PM) you a copy, soon. I can't attach it to a non-Elite thread.

@Fat Tails

Thanks for your post and getting by back. Check out the image, I beleive this is what you mean. The 30 second chart has mostly an average of a 4 or 5 ATR. Is this what you mean?

Yes, this is what I meant. The Russell 2000 Index Fund has a small tick size, so a 4 range chart is a pretty fast chart, and it would approximately convert to a 30 sec or 1 min chart.

If you take an instrument with a larger ticksize, such as ES, a 4 range chart is rather equivalent to a 2 minute chart.

KISS 2 soon in a theater near you

I knew I would learn many "things" in the month of June. And maybe others would benefit also. My new computer system is only a few weeks old. Today with the IB data feed I created a 30 second and 4 range chart for IWM. I tried a 5 and 6 range chart but they didn't work. I attribute this to the NTv7 64 bit on this new computer. Because I went back to my old computer it they didn't work. And yesterday I got some good feedback from long-term members on the indicators. But I am journalizing.

With yesterday's information, I am reseting the parameters on the indicators. A reset for the KISS strategy. But an issue always with trading is the chop, the congestion. What I read yesterday is when the SuperTrend moves sideways...."watchout". Well anyhow, I posted several images and again, see the SharkTrend plot, in retrospect; can you make some points (money)? I say, yes. So, I am in a little transition to solidify the strategy. Today, I had a 10 minute trade on the TWM (short IWM) in my IRA account. It was chump change, but it was a win. I traded it off the 4 range IWM chart. So, KISS 1 is the SuperTrend and the SharkTrend with the TSI and CCI. I am going to watch the charts and then edit the rules.

KISS 2 is something new. I didn't want to inject it into this thread, but I am. I feel I must. In KISS 2, I am adding the SharkChop indicator. I am painting the bars with the shark and numbering them with the CCI. The TSI can be used as a plus to the background. Why am I doing this? Because I want to make points, and points is money. So I will discuss this alt. strategy in the days ahead. Stay tuned.

I was wondering now that you've done some research with the authors of the different indicators if you can draw any conclusions as to if they are arriving to the same consensus approaching from different paths. Stated another way, are they really different, or similarly structured? Are they all momentum based or divergence or what? I've done alot of throwing indicators on charts to see if they work for me, but I am sad to admit, I do not always understand the logic, math, and method behind some of them. Any insights you've picked up along the way would be appreciated. thanks, Patrick

Great post Patrick, When I read it last evening, I had an initial response of: these are the questions that need to be answered to build a strategy or to succeed with a strategy. Personally I need to know the logic, math and method behind the indicator. I read the NinjaScript of the SharkTrend, if I understand it, it is a double smoothed MA (MA line) (trend) with the SuperTrend (median calculated) (paint bar & arrows) (momentum & volatility); a 2 for 1. I need to reread the SharkChop, but it is a 3 in 1 indicator. Rubber band (chop), dbl stoch (cycle & divergence) and ZeroLag MA (trend). So together, 2 indicators = 5. Everything you need for a strategy is in these two. So longer trend, momentum, chop, divergence, and shorter trend.......KISS2.

So now that I have written the last paragraph; I have a greater understanding. Until I wrote it, I didn't think about it in those terms.

So now I need to qualify KISS1. SuperTrend (momentum & volatility); SharkTrend (longer trend), CCI (shorter trend) and TSI (momentum & divergence). I will need to study this more and quote this post again and post again. And lastly the anaSuperTrend is a great indy for entering a trade or a continuation trade. More Later................Tiberius

KISS KISS

Pucker up fellow members. Ha ha. Well this morning, trying to trade a 30 second and/or 4 range chart is tough. I always fall back to a swing trade. So I am locked and loaded for just that. I have reset the indicators. And have attached the pure templates of KISS1 and KISS2.

A little more French....

Here are the templates for the e-mini or what I like the 6E. And again it is the intermediate trade. If there was a few candid thoughts from Sharky in Sharky's Classroom. "Find the trend and just go with it". "Sit back and relax". Actually I said these first but I don't have the copyright.

TGIF....what about the dog?

Hi trading fans. Yes it's Friday again. And I want to personally thank my dog for barking at 3:30 AM and not stopping. I couldn't find a plastic bag to put over her head. Turning me into a trading zombie for the morning. Couldn't put the orders in correctly so I quit for the day and week. It was a nice down day.

Okay the bottom line: I attached my desktop of charts for Monday morning. This is what I will trade live. I am a longer term trader. I will trade the 30 minute chart for IWM and the 18 range chart for the 6E (M6E). Triple blue: long, and triple red: short with a catastrophe stop. I will get some worthy progress in this thread with this strategy. "If I trade it, they will come!"
