My chart.

All my indicators I got of futures.io (formerly BMT) over a year ago. Work well to this day. LOOOL

Heck with the big moves,just give me my share. No disrespect Gary,I got paralysed with analysis long time ago.
Just take a conservative chunk of each swing on a volatile instrument and call it a day.

anasupertrend
zsharky
OHL
d9
eco2

Anybody want my settings let me know,I will post.


Everything is same as factory except below.

ana....1,3,8 are the parameters
Zsharky all plot transparent except ZNonlag....line,solid,blue
ECO2 all plots " except Main...aqua,
both together on second subgraph.
d9 period 17,phase 0...everything transparent
color background on.
OHL---factory
PAS ---factory
swing lenght points,rest false.
swing visual dots

This is after the fact, referring back to my trade entry volume bar. I know at the time it occurs it can look deceptive, but now that it is standing alone it may be a better example of what I was watching for.

I'm taking my darn Staples Reward card out and getting a new mouse after the close. lol!

haha!

I may have to close my long soon btw, though ESH 40.75 has made a very nice bottom here. POTUS is speaking as well.

I can recommend the Logitech Performance MX -- wireless, needs recharging once every 4 or so days with a simple micro USB plug (I do it overnight), contours to the hand well, and works very well on any surface (except maybe transparent glass) without a mouse pad. I have mapped 6 buttons (with a little tinkering though I must say) and can perform operations pretty quickly using these.

The following user says Thank You to josh for this post:
