A closer look


I thought that I would take a moment to look a little closer at this mornings trades....

Notice how handy the fib tool was. After the sell off at the open we had a 38.2% retracement....to the tick! Followed by a retest of the low.

After the sell off from the news there was a great retracement between the 50% and the 61.8% ....this is my favorite. (the old "half way back")Again....retest of the low and more.

If you are not using your fib tool....you should.

Jeff

I finished +223 on CL. CL is not easy. You can't take every trade. I suspect 9 range is too fast and that 12 might be better.

+145 on Euro. Euro was very choppy today. I did very well in the london session using another technique.

ES I messed up, took too many trades in trading ranges and lost money. But I realize my mistake and can easily correct it.

it's not easy trading all 3 but it's fun.

I can't post my charts cause there's a bug with Ninja and it put my entries & exits 2 bars early for some reason. I've never seen that before, hopefully it won't happen again.

EDIT: Got another winner on CL for $279 total. Here's the CL chart. The trade markers are not correct. I marked winning trades with a green diamond an losers with a red circle.

CL had some really nice trend moves today. I love days like that. Trading with the trend it's not difficult to make 6 ticks. You can see my one failed trade the SMA was blue and WMA red. I think WMA is faster and can get you into trouble. Use with caution. The SMA turned red and I went short and then it repainted. I'm not sure if I should use calculate on bar close = false or not. Gives earlier entries but often they're wrong. I like to see a bit of follow-throw. It will turn colors based on 1 tick.

Let me know what you guys think..

OK.......Sharky has agreed to release the paintbar studies. So.....here they are. His only request was that Zeller got credit for his contribution. I also know that Dragon converted the original version to other moving averages and sent them to me.
So, have fun and thanks Sharky.

Better late than never - thanks Sharky ,Zeller and Dragon . Very nice work on some very helpful tools here .
