I've got a different template for each market..... and variations of each of those......this is a work in progress. It takes hours and hours reviewing to finally come up with settings I like....... someone else might not like them....that's why I think everyone who has the indicators should pick their own settings.

OK, last template....... I really believe that you will benefit more by figuring out your own settings.....

This template is only good for the 7 range bar ES. THAT'S ALL. Don't even think about using it for any other time frame or instrument.

Note: Sharky had a good idea today..... the fast MA (bottom panel) has only the slope up and slope down colored....everything else is yellow.

Just in case you did not know...the slow MA (panel 2) has up and slope up blue ... down and slope down red.

Jeff

Hi Jeff, Where can I download these 2 indicators you are using in your template?

the only problem i have when i look at this is sometims one of the moving averages the faster one changes colors until it decides what direction it wants to go i know we have been over this before but any suggestions on how to rezolve this?...sharky

I suspect this occurs around chop, and that it may better to not trade when this is happening. I have found the best trades (with runner potential) occur when the slow ma is solid & the fast one flips back to the same color as the slow. This correspnds to small pullbacks in a trend. The first 2 are the best, after that a fake out is more likely.

tweak


I know everyone likes clean charts but sometimes it helps to see what's happening to put the MAs on the chart. Keep in mind looking at these clean charts Jeff is a good trader and probably could do this blindfolded with one hand behind his back (not his trading hand of course...). You might want to consider coloring the faster ma bars below and up top the same as Sharky recommended - only slopeup/slopedown - everything else yellow. Also you could use a dot on the MAs to signal flat. If you don't like the MAs on the chart just leave the Dots.

I have the longer ma on the bottom in my shots...personal preference.
