If you trade unirenko bars, you'll learn to recognize this pattern pretty quickly. It means "stay away."

I like the volume profile tool you are using in the last image. If they could embed a DOM into that it would be smashing!

Using Jigsaw's Depth & Sales tool for that along with his (Peter) Auction Vista and 2 RTape.

I am currently building a new computer, the first after 8 years. But holy crap things have changed, little of what I knew is still relevant.
Good luck with your basement, I bet it will be finished before my new built.

PS: Thanks for sharing the screenshots.

Wow looks like a load of fun...I admit to a bit of envy looking at your pictures. Great having various projects like that to keep you occupied .

It could be we trade totally different, but when I look at the charts I can find no difference at all in how smaller time frames handle compared to larger time frames.

If it were true that smaller time frames chop you up, the question I would ask is at what point does a time frame become large enough that it no longer chops you up?


The only difference from what I can see is the expected ATR, which would alter your profit target and stop. Now of course if you're using really small time frame, the issue could be human brain cannot process the information fast enough to make the appropriate trades, therefore getting chopped up. So, in the end may be the same result, but I think it's important to understand that (not that you don't) I am just pointing it out, since didn't see it mentioned.
