I'm thinking its not going to work on every singe time the indicators say go short and go long. These indicators rock but you need to trade it manually because it takes a human to recognize the mood of the market, where the support and resistance area's are, the speed the offers fill in or the speed the bids fill in. you get the point. I use the indicators to help me time my entries and exits but they aren't 100% I almost got stopped out this morning on a trade cause the indicators gave a signal and i took it.
well what I didn't notice is that we where nowhere near a support or resistance level, we were just floating in no man's land, i was just watching the indicators to turn color. I ended up keeping my cool and getting 4 ticks on 2 contracts, but i had to sit through some pain. look at the chart i posted.
A better entry would have been up at 998 are where the resistance was! but look the indicators were pointing down and i sucked in. see how later we went up to that level and reversed? and notice how we broke the trend I drew. THATS WHERE TO SHORT! and use the indicators to help you get in the entry. Thats how i'm trading it today ! Thanks WIZ u da man

edit: one more thing. you have to manage your stops properly! honestly! my stop on this was nearly 4 points. I placed it over the previous resistance at 999.50! people with 2 point stops your going to get whipped out of the market everytime i promise. thats how the Market Makers get their money. read the chart if you can't take the pain you can't play . got to get back to trading see you all later

Change the LBR310 settings from 3,5,10 to 3,16 10.

I got a few comments about the settings, added a 3,16,10 to my chart in addition to the 3,5,10 and noticed the 3,5,10 give 'early warning' but sometimes those early warnings are false! Yes, I, too got into trouble yesterday. Try the 3,16,10 settings and see if it doesn't look / perform better. Sorry about that. I should have tested more thoroughly before posting the indicator system.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

YRoyal,

Here you go. You will have to add the LBR310 twice and make one with transparent HPline.

Nice work. I'll check it out. Thank you.

Velocity,

I tried out your modified HGV2 and found what ntsst3 found. Not tradeable. I SIM traded it & managed to lose over $1K (1 contract) up thru 1:30. Went short (based on my SMI2 / LBR310 & ADXVMA's at 1:30 & managed to recover about 500 of that. Glad it was SIM. I appreciate all the hard work you put into it & love what you did with the concept, but I like seeing the actual indicator lines because they tell you a lot you can't discern from the colored bars. I've attached a screenshot w/ commentary. Thank you for your contribution. Perhaps we can all learn more & build on this.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Telly,

Yes. I am using IB (which filters & "interprets" trades to "generate" tick data. They do not provide historical tick data (sucks!). I'm thinking very strongly of cancelling my account & getting an account with Mirus & using Zen-Fire. ZEN FIRE USERS: To get your charts to look like mine, multiply by a factor of 4.94 (233 Tick on IB = 1151 Tick Zen Fire)

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!
