To be fair though...

If Think or Swim could display @Fat Tails Auction Bars, the most useful, most reliable, most elegant indicator I have ever seen...I'd display that as well. So, two indicators on each of two charts would be optimum.

Technically I have three but only count them as two as one is a tick counter since I like to only enter after bar is closed and I have 1 ema and swing levels printed on my chart.

I do add 4 horizontal lines and mark any other patterns I tend to see.

How many indicators are on your charts?


I think the term "indicator" can have different meanings these days than it did even 10 years ago. At least to me it does.



Here is the "old" strict indicator meaning as far as I'm concerned.....



Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).




My main chart for a symbol has 12 things added to it. Two of these are on my Default template and are on every single chart I open. Which are.....A horizontal line at the current price and my Trade Plan for that instrument ...meaning the levels I am interested in.



Below we have my chart of ZF and its "indicators". The only thing I consider indicating something to me are the three instances of the Acme Volume Delta from Rancho Dinero, one of which you can see on the chart below the other two I don't look at and are hid. They color the bars at RTH and ON sessions at the HOD or LOD with Selling Divergences or Buying Divergences respectively.



Acme Session Volume Profile which organizes the volume at price and labels many different levels like the session High the VPOC the VAL/VAH, you get it.



I also have two VWAP's one for the session another for the week.



Then one called Time Slice that highlights the IB or first 60min of the RTH.



A volume counter for the current bar.



One called Innovative Ordering shown below in a video on CL with me turning on and off etc.



And lastly my tool for calculating position size, named Risk-Reward Meter.... you click the button labeled "LTs Plan" and draw your entry and stop etc.



So....


  1. Line at current price
  2. Trade Plan
  3. Volume Delta Momentum (the one visible and also painting bars w/ Buy/Sell Divergences)
  4. Volume Delta per bar (only for Buy/Sell Divergences)
  5. Volume Delta per bar Trailing Delta (again only for Buy/Sell Divergences)
  6. Session Volume Profile
  7. VWAP session
  8. VWAP week
  9. Time Slice for the IB highlighting
  10. Volume Counter for current bar
  11. Order Entry
  12. Risk Calculation

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

That says all statistical information, so it sounds all inclusive to me. Doesn't matter anyhow because its all voodoo. My favorite voodoo is the old 20EMA. 5m, 15m, 30m bars. Also volume profile. 1d and multi day ranges. HVNs only.

Ha, you are too kind as I have seen at least three charts that he uses. The guy loves his stats and I love it when he shares those numbers.
