it will most likely work as i did call the top on a usd/yen trade -thats the only currency i watch --

So, what numerical analysis do you have for the Yen (6J) ? I should be able to derive the analysis for the Euro from the example of the Yen.

@creekboy,

Do you have to draw the Fib (using the in-built chart Fib tool) to derive the S/R ... and why do you choose to derive the S/R at that specific point ... why not a little bit earlier ? Does that specific point have a specific characteristic that made you to draw the Fib there ?

draw a vertical line from a triangle (max high/low since MA crossing) then the s/r level = middle of 2 MAs at the vertical line.

@Cory,

I suppose that new S/Rs will always emerge as we have new Max Highs/Lows, since there will also be new MA crossings... Right ?

Thanks.

What purposes do the other lines serve ... I mean the five lines which, in any case, I can set to just one. What's the implication of setting it to just one line instead of 5, 4, 3 or even 2 ?

i will give you a little history on this setup -as i dont believe anyone out there will have the link of trades for the last several years that has been used with this simple setup-

my best day testing with the sim was 24 million dollars

after that day was done - i recieved a letter from the broker telling me it does not work the way i traded -so the next day i reduced my activity x6 and did 4 million -he did not write again

the 24 million can be verifyed by several people =but i will pick Mr Don Miller -if he choses to confirm it -i tried to sell this simple system to Don for 175k when he was thinking about buying a seat for 175k on the cme board(find black box mention in Don blog archives) -the reason i chose Don was he had several places he was donating money to and felt this could really help him with his cause.

i tested this on a 100k sim account for options and currencies -in a very short time i was at 10 million and not long after playing like the boy plunger i was @ 10 billion

they say in life when something bad happens to you its not who you are -
but when something good happens to you it can be who you will become -


this system is fault free -find the ma combo that works for you -
short or long the last high or low is always the stop
and remember if you go back and review the cl trade in the beginning of this post -i called the long -short the reversal exit of the long then the reversal exit of the short -

never leave the trade when you wait for the set up -untill you can reverse at the next setup -only when the high or low is taken out will you be stopped out -

this is not a 7 tick system

this is a runner system


so run with it and do some good -as it works on everyticker symbol that has action -grain -metals -es -currency -

2-exit was first touch of blue trend

3- went long at 1309 when it failed to come in and touch for the 3rd time -also nice spike candle -exit was 2 points at the strike of the red pivot line per my chart setup
