**** SEE UPDATED POST # 349 - dated September 3, 2009 for the LATEST HOLY GRAIL UPDATE / CHART TEMPLATE ***** AND - I've added a *NEW* indicator that helps keep you out of 'false signal' trades. If you haven't tried the HolyGrail package, I encourage you to download all the stuff at post # 353 of this thread & give it a try! I think you'll find that it's as good as some of the commercially available $3k / 4k packages out there!

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

You might want to re-download the chart template. I didn't notice until after I had posted it that all the "price markers" were set to TRUE. I changed the template (to FALSE) & edited the post with the new chart template. Some folks like the price markers, but I think it just muddies the water, so to speak. The cleaner, the better.

The Wiz,

Which of the two charts is for trade entry, 77 Tick or 233 Tick ? And why the two charts ? Is the 233 Tick to be used for seeing the bigger picture/frame ?

Check out my latest post (post # 222) with updated HG Ver 6.
I think it's even better than the original.
** Deleted the DoubleMAPaint_Sharky inidicators, as it was discovered that the bars "repaint" even after the price bar has closed (sometimes), which renders then useless in this particular application. I've kept the SMI2 and the modified SMI_v2, added a 'long term' SMI2 and the FisherYur4ik. I think it looks better, too. Let me know what you think of it.

SMI2 repaints as well.

Anything in NT with two different color plots is going to repaint the last bar if the plots are connected. Simple as that.

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.
6)

Yes. 77 tick is for picking the entry point(s). Remember, if you are a zen-fire user, you need to multiply by a factor of 4.94 to adjust your tick chart to match mine. (Interactive Brokers 77 Tick = 380 tick Zen fire and Interactive Brokers 233 Tick = 1151 Tick Zen fire).

Mike, The thing that caused us grief was the fact that the last "few" bars were being repainted. Not just the last one. After a bar closed, you could see the prior 2 or 3 bars repaint a different color. I also noticed this same problem in an indicator Rjay modified yesterday(Seans Average OverUnder). It was Magenta & indicating short and 3 bars later, the 3 magenta bars repainted Blue!). I can see the last bar changing color, but 2 or 3 that had already closed? ? Try it out in replay & watch what happens. Too risky.
