  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

What's up with FT71's time scale?

Hi All, i was watching FT71's traderbite this morning, comparing his screenshots with mine I noticed the time scale on his charts is not linear. The times go like:

02:12 02:41 3:43 4:04 4:54 6:33 7:29 7:30 7:30 7:34 7:44

And hence I could not reproduce his chart. Is this for presentation purposes or is this part of a strategy?

Probably non time based bars like range, tick, or volume.

But yes, the answer was already given to you.


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.
