Hi Pete,

Sure, I'll work on the screen shots. In the meantime.

ColorSampleUniversalMovingAverage(Close,HMA,14) This was downloaded from the Ninja forum
ECOBars_SharkyPkg(3,2,5,14) Downloaded from Big Mikes Forum. My color configuration is slightly different from Sharkys in that the fading colors are different
Swing (3) Stock Ninja indicator
EMA_Colors(Close,30,60,50) I believe that this indicator was packaged with other SMA,EMA,WMA indicators. They all came as a package. The great thing about this is that it has the "flat" dots that denote a non trending market.

That's about it.

Jeff

Sorry, here's the "old template" I was wondering if you were still using. Thanks!

Hi Southsea,

Interestingly......my quote that you posted is from 11 months ago. At that time I was using the EMA 50.......lately I have been using the SMA 50....not much difference. The HMA 14 and the paint bar study have fallen by the wayside as I have become better at reading the price bars and seeing price patterns.

During the last 11 months I have tested every indicator under the sun...... or so it seems.......and still find little use for them. Lately I have become more interested in learning more about Japanese candlesticks. I find that I get better entries with candlestick patterns than with indicators.

I also look at volume to help identify some set ups.

Always learning........

Sharky,

Have you looked at the CCYX that c12345 is trying to cobble together? L@@Ks very interesting to choose what pair to trade for the day/hour .. likely code would eventually be applicable to stock pairs etc ..

@Jeff Castille, congratulations on the 1-year anniversary on this thread. It's a little late.. but better late than never

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.

at present this thread has 243 pages and takes hours to read, so the condensed version takes under an hour

it was started in 2009, and still going strong today

I would guess that the brilliant starter of this thread had a significant advantage in trading over the others who didn't have similar tools, or even close, and benefited handsomely as a result

thanks for sharing freely

thanks futures.io (formerly BMT) for being here

kudos all around

and here's to @ZTR for all his impressive work and contribution to these threads....

Yes indeed, it is a great thread, viewed more than any other thread on the forum with about 180k views.

Congrats to Jeff for this accomplishment.

This is a bit but every now and then I stumble across old videos I made for myself or a trading buddy, old emails with screen shots, etc, and watch or read these in amazement.

There is a lot to learn by reflecting on your past accomplishments. I look at past methods and look at how I used to trade, not just the method but the indicators and money management, and sometimes I am just in awe. Mostly embarrassed.

But what I've found is that the simple methods from my past, that I couldn't make work at the time, would work fine today. That is because the method is not really important, it's the execution of the method that matters (discretion needed). With experience comes greater discretion

I also get to laugh at some of my old ideas, and how they make no sense. I was fooled by indicators, looking for magical red to blue, blue to red indicators, and I got carried away and caught up in them. Watching videos where I was showing a trading buddy how fantastic my system was... they are quite funny now.

But, one thing for sure, it reminds me how much I have learned, how far I have come. It is a never ending journey, but I am grateful to have made it this far and learned so much and improved so much over the years.

It's good to reflect on this thread and see how traders have evolved even over the course of this thread from start to end. The same is true of my personal advice thread, I am not the same trader today that I was when I started that thread. Always learning, always evolving, hopefully not repeating the same mistakes twice
