just one EMA

Currently, only one EMA is on my (n-tick FX, no volume) black-white candle charts

I have 3 different systems for trade
1) 1 uses price only (for long trade H4 and up)
2) 1 uses simple MA (midterm and short)
3) 1 uses price + volume (any)

Indicators are supplementary only. Some kind a red flags which warns me about of price movement probability.

Volume/Market profile...
That's it.
Unless you count S/R zones + trendlines as indicators.

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.

As I have said before...lol.... Pick your poison and stick to it.

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.

One Indicator

I have three indicators on my chart, but only one generates a trading signal. But that one trading signal was built by around 1,000 lines of C# Ninjascript code. It took a while to do.

I guess I'm full of it

but for most of them, I like the description tool better than indicator.

also about the lagging factor. if you prefer to trade pure price action without any indicators, don't forget if you look on the left side of your charts you're looking in the past. and that's what lagging indicators do as well. anyway I know successful traders that use a bunch of indicators, but I also know successful traders that use no indicators at all. so my opinion is it doesn't really matter, important is that you're profitable.

here's my list:

- GomOrderFlowProValues

I use 2 moving averages on tick charts and a short term ADX graph in a subgraph. Then I have one alert when my conditions occur. I have been trading futures for 21 yrs and have slowly whittled my charts down to a minimum of clutter

Somehow a lot of people don't seem to get this. A trendline is as lagging as a moving average: it tells what price did in the past. So does support/resistance. You have to figure out what it will do now, and you do it in relation to what happened before... which lags the present.

This is all that matters, of course.
