This is range bound and a lot of it could qualify as chop.

That was my point.

Everyone has different criteria for trading methods as well as what qualifies as chop, range bound, Good/Bad trading opportunities.

You saw opportunities for "LOTS" of trades. The way I trade called for 1 trade which went to +60 .

The baseline is EMA((EMA,10),10)

The bands are 20 tick offsets.

@ThatManFromTexas

Would you explain how to set that up? I've never seen it worded that way.

TIA,

@trs3042

That is a smoothed ema or a double ema (and ema of an ema).

This indicator I posted in the elite downloads. It will let you use a double or single moving avaerge of a bunch of different types. To make a double EMA , set both choices to EMA with the same length
