Ha Ha!
I meant break the thread down to make it slimmer.
213 pages on one topic is a whole book!

I have my own system but am always interested in other thoughts on market action.

Ah I gotcha.

I think it's good to have one thread. I've seen threads on other sites that are a couple years old. That's pretty cool. and when I see a very long thread then it tells me there must be something interesting in there otherwise people wouldn't continue the thread..

I agree to leave it as-is. Some threads on FF are 15,000 pages long with > 170,000 posts in one thread.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hi Mindset,

I thought the same thing....wow...213 pages. But, if I can sit in front of a computer screen for 10-12 hours....213 pages in a week or less...piece of cake (lol).
Seems to be a lot of good info. and maturation of ideas forming. I Look at the task as a mystery novel...we have an idea of who wins but not sure how.

To Be Continued...next chaper...btw...I am on day 1, page 17

Take care and happy entirs and exits,

Mark

I read 3 of the Chaos books. Once planned to use the indicators (which you will find in the Ninja Support Forum) for trading Futures. Noticed the Up/Down fractals do not always work out. Sometimes they got me in and it's a fake and got stopped out within seconds.

Having said that, one of my trading peers is using the Chaos signals to trade YM for a few months now. He's quite happy with it. He's been trading almost all signals (5 or more contracts per trade) with the first target at 10 and leave 1-2 contracts for home-run. I do not have so much faith in them. Guess his taking the Profitunity programs help.

Happy & Successful Trading!

I really liked the Chaos fractals for S/R with MultiCharts but have not found the code to be able to port it to NinjaTrader.

Have you ever looked at Bill Williams Chaos Theory system? This is how he enters - I think he call them fractals - swings hi/lo. There is a Ninja indicator for them.

I tried to comment on this post (on page 22) - could be dated. Sorry!

I find this All You Need thread very interesting. Read up to page 27 and still lots to go!

Som123,

Which particuliar downloads are you refering to?

If it's an indicator as a cs file you have to put it into the indicators and them compile it. If the indicator is in zip form you import through utilities.
