If stoch crosses above 50 but the step ma is blue/green but flat, do you wait for the stepma to turn up before entering? or do you enter with it flat?

Thanks for sharing your chart and explaining it. I was waiting for both stoch & stepma and as a result I was getting in too late and getting stopped out. I think your approach of entering on stoch crossover and then exiting if it doesn't confirm makes a lot of sense. I'm going to try it.

The other challenge I'm having is knowing when to move up the stop loss and when to take profits. price often pulls back and I get out only to watch price move up 10-20 ticks without me. If you have any tips on that please let me know.

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

From what I see the majority of times the stoch crosses 50 in the opposite direction of the step ma. The step ma then turns down 1 or 2 bars later.

My concern with taking these trades is that if the step ma doesn't turn down then it's a failed trade. It seems like it'd be better to wait for the step ma to turn down. But by then you might have missed 3-5 ticks.

Any ideas?

EDIT: After studying the charts posted here and my own, I think I misunderstood the approach. In Tzachi's examples the trades are only taken if the step is already the right color for the stoch crossover. This eliminates a lot of bad trades and leaves a lot of good ones. Am I on the right track?

sorry to be so slow but I'd like to figure out how this works. Thanks for your patience.

How are you using the 11 range chart? What kind of moving average is on it? I think this could help me to avoid some of the losing trades.
