Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

/CL

@Cashish

Cashman

I understand this is off topic, however I need your expertise

I'm trying to apply this to the above with not much (fortunate. word ?)

Is it because of the ATR ? (21 day average is ~~ 1.55)

Thank you

I think I've answered my own question

/CL has a new contract 12 months a year so applying this methodology would be difficult but not impossible........

With that said, thank you for enlightening me on all this "wonderful stuff" you have here

It has helped me immensely/ an assload

Hope all is well with you and your family

Here's a study I'm currently working on. I've set the study to mark the high and low of each two hour time frame. Start time is 0200amET and end time is 1500ET.

When looking at the "count number" it is the number of occurrence long or short. For example if the high or low at 2am was at the top of the hour it would get a one or two (one is high and two is low.) If the high was at 215am it would get 1.25 and if 245am it would get 1.75, reverse for low would be two respectively.

As you can see the 1500ET window is blank and so far the spreadsheet has 41 records. As I enter in more records I suspect the "time bin" will not change much only an increase of occurrence.

How do I know this? On my M1 chart I have marks at the hour, half hour, fifteen minute and forty-five minute. I've been tracking this on /6E and /CL.

I didn't want to derail the "oil" thread with questions, so I STOLE this post and brought it here, (not sure it will work)!

What do you have on the burner Bill?

Why not 1 hour, or 4 hours?

I'm not sure I'm reading the spreadsheet correctly, what is "blank?"

What happened 30 times at 2 am in the count "cell?"

Tell me more, tell me more.

Hold please

Let me get my head around a meaningful answer

In the meantime......

I have time marks (as noted, but not on that chart - you can see them on my /CL charts) on an M1 chart at hour, half hour, fifteen minute and forty-five minute. I'll use these along with VSA candles to note price action, price levels, participation (respectively red dots, green squares and white dots.)

Let me put together an answer with useful info (I might have to re-think my think.)

-Bill

EDIT

Blank is the number of cells that are blank, no data (Excel function =countblank(ACx:ACy) ) IE blank 41 and count 0. Count is how many times Excel detected any value, occurrence in a cell for a given range.
