I could make a few ticks anytime off your chart.. you have it setup perfectly.....
your bars when change color around the #'s give you direction.. visual make it clear for me.. infact dont we depend on visuals in our daily life.. from basic expressions of a smile to traffic lights... everything is a visual confirmation.. anywasy i dont wanna go off topic here.. Ill post your chart with my entries & exits..I hope you dont mind..

Thanks

Bugs

Tiberius, what kind of candles are those? They don't look like my 233 tick, if they are 233 tick, what is the broker that you are using?

Dancing sounds nice.... Its the trust you guys bestow in me that gets me going.... The mkt will move everyday regardless If I give #'s or dont.. but its nice to know the "handshake & goodbye" areas, thats what i call it..

Together we can make a difference..

Thanks for letting me play around with your chart

@rsmann123

Heiken Ashi candles. They make the MAs and indi plots more reliable................. I use IB, but this is a zen-fire data feed for NT7.

do you some kind of add in a certain sequence cause I just checked your #'s they all seem in a sequence!!!

I dont know but alchmesit74 I want you to be honest over here... I think i have build some kind of trust over here by being honest with everyone with what i can & cant do.

so please watch what is shared by anyone.. till you build trust in the system...

Thanks

Hi, i will try to give all info u want. Excuse my English plz !
So this lines are based on ImpVolatility and last close or today's open. I dont know math as i said, coz i hate math and donth want to learn anything about it, but i have good friend that is very good on math so he develop it for me. Thats why i will ask him before i post here his work(math) .... i hope u understood me correctly.
Now about lines. I am in home now and i have not here anything related to trading so will try to explain as much as i can remember. Basic idea for this lines is to find natural support and resistance areas based on last day close or today open. It use volatility and calculate daily range expected. numbers are are sequence but are fixed only for current day. Depending of volatility distance between lines may and will vary. For example today distance is 2,50 TF points but tomorrow can be 2 ,00 or 3,00 TF points.
I use fixed % step as excel input but u can use fibo numbers as inputs to calculate the lines. U will see this when / if my friend agree to post his work here.
But with or withot permission i can post nubers everyday here as i promised for all products u want.
If u have more questions, just ask
Best Regards,
Alchemist

P.S. too many mistakes i find in my post, sorry but my writhing English is not good enough

if TF 825.5 sells it will go down (crucial to decide mkt direction)or we could also go sideways in this range of 820.5 & 825.5 both need to break to decide proper direction

If 825.5 gets bought we will see the upside #'s


Directionless day today... good i cashed in that early move.. I will wait another half hour to see what happens....

GoodLuck to everyone

Happy Trading

but on my chart......................when price approaches a bug's #, the color of the cloud on the indi with the MA crossover plus the SVEBB MA at the std deviation H/L zones; provides clues on how price will probably react to these numbers.

Thanks for explaining everything as much as possible.. before I used to trade the way you are trying to expain it can be successful @ times cause as i said this before NO ONE NEEDS A MAGIC INDICATOR TO EXPLOIT THE MKT.. I said that so many times in my previous posts.... Every single mkt moves with a hidden move & yes you are right its all range bound... back in the day I used an Indicator made by cory or fattails I even forget the name of the indicator... you could input uk open time & some other mkts close time to determine the Initial range.. but the only problem with this is that say if TF has a 2.5 move today.. & you could be expecting to short that 2.5 move but say it moves another 2.5 to the up then you have a losing trade.. I dont say u lose everyday but its pretty good to know the hidden moves.... as i said before you dont need an indicator to determine this.. I will try to explain it to you in the simplest way.. say the mkt has made a top @ 5:00am EST 830.2 & comes down all the way to 825.3 & moves back up to 827.9 before making a small retrace & shoots back up to 832.6 so the hidden move is 2.5 points or 25 ticks once the hidden moves are determined only then youll feel safe to countertrade the trend & be successful... but you have to be very carefull some times the move is @ 4 points & you could get killed if it moves 8 points against you & it does happen.. but I think most of the ppl already know this stuff if they didnt then they should look @ their chart.. Ive always stressed this in my posts.. LOOK @ YOUR CHARTS IT HAS A STORY TO TELL....

WELL thanks again for sharing the stuff.. it will help a lot of ppl..

Sounds very interesting...I would like to see how your indicators behave on a normal day. Let us know after a week or so if your discovery is reliable/tradable.
