I think time frame depends on your risk tolerance. But count to 3 and repeat. Day in Day out.
I made this shaded template off of WH's GMMA mod which I really like.

You don't always need a rainbow to find a valley, sometimes the jagged overpass is a more direct route

Hehe yes actually the drawing code in those indicators is probably one of the most complicated parts..

I am using HSL color wheel to automatically generate a spectrum of colors given a few inputs, kind of similar to how the gradient tool works in photoshop.

fyi, the code for dealing with HSL colors is in my utility library which is posted in elite section with d9particleoscillator

Also soon I plan to post wavelet indicator which is the basis of all of those in the screenshot. They are all non-linear modifications of the Haar wavelet, which is the most basic wavelet transform, it is equivalent to Guppy MMA with weighted averages and using powers of 2 as the periods.

The ones in the screenshot exploit the characteristics of fractals by observing the history at sparse points. In other words it looks at the value x amount of bars ago compared with the current bar but does not consider the points in between (hence why they are non-linear). If you were to look at that on a single scale it would not be very useful, but when combined into a multiresolution framework it becomes incredibly useful.

Edit: also, I highly recommend the Joe Ross book that astra linked to above, his work was very influential to me in developing my core strategy (concept of how 1-2-3 defines trends, traders trick entry, etc..)

Put your favorite paint bar study on top of a wave and see if it makes you look at things differently. To me it adds structure to the madness.... of course to you it may just be more madness.
