What do you look for in that and what is 1597 tics compared in time?


I use range charts so I would pretty much compare it with a 11 range TF.....

5range 8range 11range 13range. 1min 144ticks,1597ticks TF ONLY for me...

The time equivalent might be around 10 mins....depends on how fast or slow the market is. I have used a 2000 tick chart for quite a while and it serves me well. I also use 1597 now after hearing about it from Bugs and found it of equal value. I look for simple p/a and so forth. Pinbars and engulfing bars and spinning tops are my best friends. After a while you learn to discern which ones to trade and which ones to avoid(traps)...Location is KEY
Notice the pinbar at swing low followed by a "confirming" up candle that exceeds the high of the pin by at least 3 ticks...enter on next candle at 2 ticks above the high of the pin. I knew it would hit at least the high of the candle preceeding the pin from experience (776.1). The next pin that shows up tells you that the up move might be over and in this case since it was a down day and it was confirmed by another down candle it should retest the bottom. Notice however no entry was given on that pin. That tells me that it will likely experience some drawdown on a eventual entry. anyway if you want to know more let me know....I don't want to write a book here.

By the way don't apply these tick numbers universally to other instruments....the others like different numbers in my experince

As you know, a lot of times when you post something(as you did in the chat box originaly) you open yourself to getting attacked and criticised and as a result I 've generally kept quiet about things. Seems like it's safe to share a few things around here.
What I showed there was pretty basic stuff everyone (should)knows, It's the conditions that must be met that are important in determining which trades to take.

TF: to go up 769.5 should break & hold in order to see 774------778,,,,,782

TF to go down 761 should break to see 756-----752--------748,,,
