Sooooo ... they interviewed every body who ever traded and asked how many hours they stared at a screen .... nobody called me ... anyone call you ...

96% of experts say 69% of expert studies are inaccurate .... but if they include their own studies in the group ... that means 69% of experts say 96% of expert studies are inaccurate ... but if they include their own studies in the group....

LOL, You make it difficult for me not to thank you, you crazy Texan

I am only a pretend trader, so no one ever calls me Whereas they are all in awe of you, so they can't bother you, besides I think they are all scared of your guns

TMFT-

No, they didn't call me, but the laugh felt good. And even if they had, I have no interest in that call. The call I am waiting for is from NT at 6:00 A.M. Monday to take control of my computer and delete all those assemblies I can't make go away from hoarding all those subsidies the futures.io (formerly BMT) government is always generously doling out.

I'm using 5 mins now but I'm thinking if the Kase bar is more trade-able.

Sometimes the market is gone too far away after the 5 mins bar printed.

I trade the market, not charts.
I trade price, not bars.

Free thyself from the shackles of arbitrary constructs and illumination will findeth thee.

See... I was right

If NT can't fix it ... Worst case scenario ... copy all your indicators,strategies and templates to a different directory ... uninstall NT .... download a new copy of NT ... add the indicators,strategies and templates you still need ...

The downside, you will lose the transaction history so NT performance reports won't work, but your broker will still have the information .

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

I was wondering what blind people trade a while ago, but then I heard there is some software that someone was trading that makes chirps when block orders come in. They wait for the chirps to come like pop corn in the microwave and make a trade. I'm pretty sure they made out well. So, I'm not sure if charts are even necessary to make entries in some situations. I'm sure If price or an indicator was made into some sort of sound and you could change the speed or replay it then visual charts may not be needed to make entries. And, I'm sure this already exists because I know if I go blind I'm not going to stop trading!

I think audio can be used extensively to help the visually impaired. Although I'm not visually impaired, see this post on how I use audio extensively in my trading.

Although I think if one is totally blind, then autotrading would probably be the only viable alternative.
