Could someone please direct me to the HMA color indicator that does not re-paint. Seems like the one that Eric has provided in this thread is re-painting.

Appreciate any help.

Thanks

Hey guys, can I suggest that we stop sharing indicators in the forum and that we put them in the file download section? That way everyone will know where to find them and we can keep the various versions floating around updated.

could somebody who successfully applies WIZ template tell me the name of the indicator he uses I believe I have all necessary indicators but when I apply one of the WIZ template all I see is just a plain chart.

First, I spent all weekend going over charts and marking when the colors line up and studying the patterns. First thing I found was that just entering a trade because of the dots didn't work for me. That was really not a surprise. However when I combined that with my usual setups it worked almost 100% (this is in hindsight mind you, but I did try going bar by bar).

Second, what I like most about the EMA colors is that I can instantly see if the market is choppy. If the EMA colors (top row) has a lot of yellow or is bouncing back and forth then it's chop.

I used to say that one could see that just from the chart, with trading ranges and overlapping bars. But the colors make it stand out so much that one can't ignore it to slip in a trade anyway.

I only took 1 Euro trade today, and that was on my 5 min chart where I don't have the color MA's. It was during chop. But on 5 min it wasn't as obvious (well it is now in hindsight). I went for a reversal, a really aggressive trade that I am still doing on simulator until I convince myself it's not worth it.

While studying the charts this weekend I came up with some criteria to rule out trades. It rules out a lot of good ones but that's ok, I want a high win rate and low loss level so that I can trade size.

I hit my goal at 9:34 after 4 trades on CL. Now I do what Jeff does. Quit. No, I can't. I need more practice. SO my rule is when I hit my goal I go to sim. If after a week I see my sim results is much higher than the goal then I increase the goal. If sim results give back my gains then I can work on that while keeping the real cash in my pocket.

After writing this post I made a mistake and took a trade that didn't meet all my setup criteria. I "lost" $84 which would have given back most of my gains. good thing it was on sim. Good thing I didn't quit cause it was a learning experience too. Nothing better than making your mistakes on simulator.

Good trading to all!

PS: My goal for this week is 8 ticks = around $80-$100.

PSS: I got Cory's Volume Stop indicator on my charts just observing. So far I like it. Good job Cory.
