The golden cross is a chart pattern created when a shorter term moving average was below a longer term moving average, but it crosses above that moving average. This is typically seen as a bullish signal.

The golden cross is mostly used with longer term moving averages. It's an especially strong signal when the 50 day moving average crosses above the 200 day moving average.

In the last 12 years, as marked by the blue boxes, every time we had a golden cross ES increased substantially. In these days the ES 50 EMA is about to crossabove the 200 EMA, will it be another Golden Cross?

Thx Richard you are welcome, this one is pretty simple and you don't need a bot as it is very long time framed nevertheless you can use the crossabove crossbelow function in the strategy wizard

Camarilla Pivots

We have a short signal which is about to turn long, I don't think we'll see S4/S5 touched (at least in this remaining section).

Congratulations

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Chart Trader Extra Buttons

In my trading I am using multi level limit orders entries with multiple contracts. As I like to have easy and fast access to what I need, I decided to add some extra buttons on NT's Chart Trader. This is a modified version of Bukkan's ChartTrader https://futures.io/elite-circle/8480-tmft-requesting-advice-custom-indicator-11.html#post118633.



The Chart Trader needs to be refreshed only the first time, If you save the workspace it will stay that way even after restarting NT. This tool is customizable in terms of number of contracts and ticks up/down from current price, it was designed for my personal trading, feel free to use it at your own risk.

The indicator is absolutely not CPU intensive, as the action is subject to the click of the button, nothing happens onbarupdate.

Please take note that at the moment it is not possible to link a limit order to the strat as mentioned in the video, stops and targets need to be set manually

Chart Trader Vwap


The chart trader can be adapted to any personal use, in this case it is a vwap version. As the Italian Job method is about entering on the 2nd Vwap standard deviation, the buttons will set limit orders on the 2SD level, and +-10 ticks or +-20ticks below or above the 2SD levels. You can use any indicator in this case I used anaVWAPV38 (which is included in the ZIP).




If you want to set parameters with a different indicator all you have to do is modify all the lines with:

 
Code
Order o = a.CreateOrder(Instrument,OrderAction.Buy,OrderType.Limit,TimeInForce.Day,qnt1, anaCurrentDayVWAPV38(anaBandTypeVWAPD38.Variance_Distance, anaSessionTypeVWAPD38.ETH, 1, 2, 3, anaSessionCountVWAPD38.First).LowerBand2[0],0,"","Entry");
and set the correct variables.
