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...

I have 24" monitor so I have Euro, CL, & ES. I often see one start a move before the others and sometimes the others follow and sometimes they do not. Yesterday was a good example, CL moved quite a bit but ES was flat.

Why not get a big monitor?

I'm sure you can find a use for your idea and I didn't mean to criticize the idea. What I wanted to get across is that attempting to trade all the markets will likely result in not trading any of them well.

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.

Hi cunparis,

These are not really my indicators. I'm just helping out.

My thoughts... these are all beta.

Keep the one's you want, delete the rest.

Move to download area when everyone is satisfied with final product.

RJay

Fair enough guys.. I have been messing around with this some this morning with a 9 Range chart for the 6E in dashboard mode and a 2 Range in the back ground and it does seem to help me get a better fill on market replay.. So maybe I will just stick that that for now..

Thanks

What is the difference between "range" & "range no gap"? I never thought of using a 2 range, it's an interesting idea.

I used to trade with 3 timeframes but TRO kind of convinced me that we just need one and I've found it much more beneficial to watch two markets on the same timeframe rather than one market two timeframes. But I like your idea of using the smaller timeframe to pinpoint an entry.

I'm testing the euro now, playing around with different ideas.

If you or anyone else has market replay for the past week on Euro, CL, and ES, would you mind sharing? I have downloaded Market Replay for the past but I'd like to go over the past week with it fresh in my mind. Unfortunately I didn't record the data this past week.

Thanks

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.

Wouldn't putting your stop under the last swing hi/low make for a lopsided R:R ratio?

I've been xperimenting with 8 tick target & 8 tick loss (4/6 for ES).

In my daytrading (not scalping) I would put my stop there but I wouldn't have a target, I'd exit on the first sign of weakness. So one winner would make up for several losses. If I'm scalping for 8 ticks then one loser would take away several winners.

I'm new to scalping so I'm still struggling with this idea.
