Interesting ThatManFromTexas. Care to elaborate on how you use CCI or ZScore to filter "head fakes" ?

The colored background paints when the CCI(pick your length) or Zscore(Pick your length) is above or below a a certain level (pick your threshold ).

Trade when the trend and back ground color are in sync and the close crosses your trigger point.

There is more info in the thread ESFXtrader started.

Hi Cory,

Are the red and green lines generated using the SuperTrend indicator? I see the "up" trend in your charts but I could not figure out the logic behind the entry on the 2nd red candle can you please elaborate??

entry/exist is not a concern in this thread beside these were sim trades I just go with my gut feeling. it is not easy to explain and may not even be the same as live trades.

If you have so many indicators on your chart that it takes you 5 minutes to make a decision and you are trading on 3 minute bars... you probably won't be successful... I'm just sayin' ...
