Multiple time frames

I case anyone was wondering why my last two CL entries look a little weird.....it's because I've been experimenting with multiple time frames. On CL I'm looking at the 10,20 and 30 range bar charts (no gap) and on YM I'm looking at the 8,16 and 24 range bar charts (no gap). Of course I always keep a minute chart up also with support and resistance on it. . (toggle between 5 minute and 30 minute)

Jeff, why? 5 for 5 and +50 ticks is terrific. Nice job.

slap Richard's virtual 30m bar on your 5m chart then you don't have to switch.

Breakout Trade

Jeff
Really enjoy looking at your breakout trade. Had never even considered trading CL until reading your posts (and Big Mike's). So far, just watching and sim trading it. Understand your breakout technique, but still don't have a good handle on your other intraday trades. Will just keep following along until I get it......anyway, thanks

See through candles

I was thinking the same thing yesterday but.......I found it a little difficult to adjust to seeing through the Richard candles to the faster ones......I guess I would get use to it with a little time.

I'm curious if the no gap range bars are the same as range bars but just draw in an extra tick on the bar so there won't be a gap. Or are they different? I'm using regular range bars and the gap doesn't bother me at all so I'm not really sure what the no gap range bar is about.

RJay is the master of no gap range bars.....I suggest we find out from him.

fade Richard's bars out to be barely visible...so they just give a bias and don't feel like chart clutter. Try PenAlpha @ 30

OK Papa,

Here's my favorite set up. I've zoomed in on my first two trades of today. Watch for a swing high or low then put a buy or sell stop in 1 tick below/above it. That's it. I have a target of +10 because I'm focusing on scalping right now. Keep in mind that these two trades are counter trend trades and by definition more dangerous than trades with the trend. Stop placement is up to you ......either swing high/low or perhaps a faster time frame swing high/low or some level of market defined volatility. No sense in having a stop that is too close and not giving the market a little breathing room. Give it a chance to work....just not too big a chance. Of course keep in mind good r/r etc.

Hope that helps a little,Jeff

Thanks for the clarification....I was looking too hard and missed the obvious.

I love the KISS principle and your techniques are prime examples of doing exactly that.

I am currently looking at the ORB on the CL, then either ES or TF, and then ZC. Different markets, different openings, but the principle holds......
