Hi guys.

First off - Jeff, I love the thread you created here, it has given lots of food for thought.
I thought I'd post something that I've been working on for a while. As you can see I have also been bitten by the dot bug ...

Unfortunately my programming skills need lots of work(understatement of the year - hehe) That said on the chart the
green/pink is Jeffdots, the blue and red dots and triangles are two indicators( more like strategy entries.... ) that I am working on.
I am also playing around with the SQ9 indicator (thanks to Gio - hehe) and the lines seem to work pretty well as
s/r and profit targets for multiple contracts. Im also trying to see if it will work for the TRO train/ rat setup....

Anyhoo my 5cents for the month....

Take care guys and good trading

Mick

I have been focusing on the 5 minute the last few days. I always used it for an anchor.

I took the 5min ORB today. My first day taking it. Almost did it on real money and then though no better do sim the first time.

My experience is by the time people catch on to a pattern it usually stops working. I hope that won't be the case. Thanks for sharing Jeff.

PS: My markers are off (NT bug). they are at the right price just one bar early..

More Dots !!!!

One thing you can't have too much of......and that's dots.

So, I'm guessing that these dots are volume stop dots or something related to volume?

Prey tell.....

Ok Jeff you are very clever!

Yes, it is volume stop dots. Here's my current chart with 3 volume indicators:

- volume stop
- volume spike
- volume patterns (hvc)

when 2/3 signal it's a good trade.

You could also add your dots and maybe get 3/4..

Uses for volume stop

It seems that the volume stop gives good countertrend signals......Have you found this to be true?

Wood splitting day. I'll check in tonight.

Cunparis, it looks really good, I like what you said in the next post about having 2/3 of them lining up and the trade looked nice. Have you tried them on anything other than the 5 min? i.e. range bars?

Are these going to be in the download section, I'd love to try them out in harmony with what I'm using.
Thanks
