I have simplified ichimoku (cloud only) on 5m, and upper/lower band in LBR paint bar study on 10m chart; also relative volume on both.

what is the cloud cover study on the 10 minute (this one doesn't look like an Ichimoku)? Also, the bar study over the relative volume...i think it's labeled QT(3,4)?

TIA

Hi humbled1, here're more details about my charts

cloud on 10m chart is upper/lower volatility band in LBR paint bar study.

QT is my own simplified version of TrendQuality study

...

this is the screen i am training on...

since i am new to day trading, i am hoping this kind of set up will help..

opinions welcome...

there are a couple of custom things i am trying to make
ergo my post asking...
as i would like to scan for certain things that these screens help with.


Hi @Artfldgr,

This is an interesting post, and since you said "opinions welcome," I'm sure that you will find some.

I should point out that this thread you have posted it in, "Battlestations: Show us your trading desks!" is meant for people to show actual photos of the physical desks they trade at, with their monitors and computers and all the cool hardware.... not their "desks" in the sense you have meant it, their chart layouts and setups.

There's nothing wrong with your post, it's just in the wrong place. If you skip back in the thread a page or two, you will see what I mean. (The posters who commented on charts in the posts just above yours were responding to questions about screens that showed on the photos of their monitors.)

One good thing you could do for this kind of post would be to start your own trading journal in the Trading Journals forum, here: https://futures.io/trading-journals/

Or, if you just want to put out the screenshot and your explanations for comment, you could open a thread in any of the other forums -- Traders Hideout is sort of a general-purpose one if nothing else comes to mind: https://futures.io/traders-hideout/

So, we would appreciate it if you reposted in a more appropriate location. It keeps the forum more organized and makes it easier for members to find things that interest them.

Thanks.

Bob.

Yup
cant argue... I realized TOO late...
if ya like you can kill the post (before they kill me)

@Artfldgr, If you want to repost it somewhere and not have to retype everything, I'll keep it up until about this time tomorrow so you can copy/paste.

Thanks for understanding.

Bob.
