Hi, Jeff, it is using ColorSampleUniversalMovingAverage2. Could you point out where to get it?

Thanks.

Hey Keepdchange,

I'd say the best thing for you to do is to devote some time to read the thread. Every indicator is posted. In reality....we don't use too many indicators.....one moving average to keep us on the right side of the market and one to time entries. (throw in a paintbar study for good measure)

Personally, I'm a scalper, I don't worry about catching a big move...my exit is set. So my entries and exits are simple. I don't know if this is a style that fits your temperment or not. So what I do may not be your cup of tea.( just try and keep a good r/r) As far as ES and 6E these are markets that are new to me as I have focused many years on the YM. At this point in time I have been really zeroing in on the ZN with Sharky.

Probably the most important thing is to understand when to trade and when NOT to trade. This is what is known as "time of day"

Then ....know when to quit. Reach your goal or reach your "tilt"

I marked up a 9 range bar 6E chart for you and attached its template. Have fun!!

But think about this........if all you had was the price could you still trade this chart? You see where the entries are, you see where the stops should be placed....did the indicators tell you that....NO.....the price did....just as the price told the indicators what to do. The indicators are visual aids. Study price action..higher highs, lower lows, pullbacks, reversal patterns, a,b,c complex pullbacks, 1,2,3...... breakouts....... trend days, narrow range days......I hope you get the idea.

Please remember.....I am constantly working on templates....this is just the "latest and greatest."

Jeff

Jeff, Can you tell me what other indicators are on your chart? When I download the template, this is what I get. No indicators appear in the indicator assignment window. Thanks.

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

Hi, wizard, I got the same look as yours. What is lacking is the ColorSampleUniversalMovingAverage2 indicator.

Can you direct me to ColorSampleUniversalMovingAverage2? I searched this thread & the entire forum and cannot find it under that name. Thanks.

hey rjay nice work on the ema v3,could you do a sma v3 and wma v3 also thanks...sharky


Hi Sharky,

No problem, Here they are.

I noticed members lamenting that the current bar sometimes misleads them while it is forming.

All three indicators here have been given the "update on bar close only" option capability.( Currently set as Default.)

When loading, accept any overwrite when prompted. ( Update old EMA_Colors_V3)

Enjoy,

RJay

This way someone could be monitoring say the ES, CL, ZN, YM, and TF at the same time each of which having their own optimized view for that instrument. When colors started to align on one of them they could quickly change their master chart over to the instrument in play.

It's an interesting idea but I really don't find it necessary. remember your goal is to make 8 ticks/day. If you're really good at making 8 a day you can try to make 12. Then 16, etc. Any market will provide an opportunity to make 8 per day, so adding several markets before mastering one will just spread yourself too thin. CL moves so fast that it's really difficult to trade anything else. I mainly trade CL & Euro and between the two I'm fully occupied.

Also I think one should be studying price and deciding when one could enter and then get a confirmation from the indicator. Or use the indicator to filter out a possibility. But just entering when the indicators turn the same color? In my opinion this won't work, but if it does I'm quite sure it'd be less optimal.

I trade with a group of traders that just trade the Euro. They don't trade anything else. Why? They don't need to.

So one liquid market is all you need, two if you really like action and don't want to be bored. But even trading two the result might not be as good as if you were trading one. As an example I found two missed trades on my Euro chart (I usually mark them with a yellow square), that I missed cause I was trading CL. I don't remember if I happen to have won my CL trades at the time but it's very possible that I was losing money on a CL trade and missing a nice win on the Euro chart at the same time.

RJay - I have a suggestion. The code for the 4 MA colors indicators is exactly the same except for the MA type. Why not make that a parameter and then we can maintain one copy of the code instead of 4? I don't know how to do this but the color universal sample moving average has an MA type so it should be easy to do.

cunparis.... wouldn't it be nice to see the ES lining up and breaking down before say the YM if you were a YM trader... Just another view into the Market... You notice on my screen shot I have a 2 Range chart in the background.. So the scenario could be to first look to the 9 Range chart for alignment then move to the 2 Range for entry (In fact that is exactly what the screen shot shows)..
